About This File

The ZanZan TC was missing from the /idgames archive, which I felt was something of a crime (why it was never uploaded I don't know) since it's such a great TC. For more info on the TC read the file ZanReadme.txt in the zip.

This pack includes ZDoomGL 0.66 because that's the version of ZDoomGL needed to run the TC since it has MD2 support. The current version of ZDoomGL (coded by timmie) is more stable, but supports less features. You can actually play this TC with that version (but you need to move the player1 start in map01) but it will look silly without the MD2s.

To play this just simply unzip to your Doom directory WITH folders (it will unzip to a folder called 'zanpack') enabled. Now, the archive includes a few batch files for Voodoo 2 and 3. If you have one of those you can try using them, but your best bet is to just run zan.wad from the command line, and ZDoomGL will do the rest. Read ZanReadme.txt first though, as it will tell you the options you'll need enabled to play the TC properly.

If you have any questions about running the TC the feel free to contact me.

Excellent TC. If the ZdoomGL version is too difficult to run on modern machines, there is a gzdoom version at https://www.doomworl d.com/idgames/levels /doom2/Ports/v-z/zan zan_g. The comic from the TC's website is worth reading before you start as well. Does a nice job of setting up the plot for the game.

ZanZan is absolutely legendary... however a royal pain to get working. Download the GZDoom version here, http://www.doomworld .com/idgames/index.p hp?id=14574 for a much better, working version. -Scuba

over-rated. Lots of graphics lags, but RTC-3057 is a bit better. ~0/5

A fantastically well done TC. The gameplay is not quite up to the same standard though.

(if fog effects appear too dense, use g_fglfog 0.3 command to fix it)

Weird, completely different, but entirely captivating, ZanZan takes the old Doom formula and swaps it all out for a very unique fantasy-style WAD. It's totally bizarre, but that's why it's fun to play. The music, weapons, level design, structures, story, and even some of the monsters are totally un-Doom like, but it's all so haunting beautiful and intriguing that you really don't mind. Definitely worth playing!

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
