About This File

This .WAD was to be a DeathMatch level, at the beginning. But it came to nothing, because it was too big to be a DeathMatch map and there were some other incompatibilities with DeathMatch gameplay. Then I modified it so that it could be good enough for Cooperative and Single-Player modes. Then Virgil The Doom Poet helped me to finish the level, detailing it and improving its story and scripts, so that we decided to change again the tiltle from "Storming", its second name, to "Red Eye", because of the several changes. This level is set in a technology base, which can be divided in 9 areas. They are: 1) Leaving Area; 2) Casualty Ward; 3) Teleport Station; 4) Armoury; 5) Nukage Area and Sewer System; 6) Computer Station; 7) Infested Area; 8) Warehouse; 9) Outer Area. As its original name suggested ("Metal_DM"), the main theme of the map is "metal" and, particularly, it is made up of "METAL1" textures. It is highly detailed, especially as for lighting, and this may slowdown old computers (I suggest that you decrease your resolution, if the game slowdown!). This map is mainly intended to show my new ideas about Doom themes and styles and to publish a level of high quality, although I didn't think I would have spent so much time, when I planned it. ZDoom features and ACS scripts are implemented in order to make gameplay more interesting and funnier. The .WAD contains also two strengthened monsters: -there is a "new" Chaingunner, who looks very much like other Chainguners, but who is more powerful than them. -his Body Guards, who are strengthened SS Nazis, with a nice green colour (yes, like in "Alien 3"!) WARNING: I don't want to spoil anything, but let this be a warning: there are several stealth monsters, which can damage you a lot, if you are imprudent; please, notice that most of them can be locate easily, if you know what I mean... they are GHOSTS, after all...! Anyway, if you don't like them, I have turned them into normal monsters at skill 1/2. So: don't complain about them! Remember that JUMPING IS CHEATING, although I think I made all "jumping short cuts" unreachable. Enjoy yourself by playing it with your friends and delighting in looking at my new nice graphics!

Excellent, and surprisingly overlooked. This has the bare minimum of preamble and turns into one of those System Shock-Doom things whereby you are guided about by a disembodied text crawl; but it's tastefully done. Lovely design, the interface with hell is one of the best "infested with goo" bits I have ever seen, and the boss chaingunner was fun. Against it, it's too short, and the stealth monsters don't really add anything and are irritating. Some of the messages re-trigger.

Stealth monsters suck ass, never add them into a map. Some nice ZDoom features here but the level is set up kinda stupid. I do like the chaingunner boss. 8/17/07

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
