Well it's almost 2005. Happy new year doomers!
Here is my gift to you: tv1998.wad.
In August 2004 I found a disk which contained Doom maps I made back in 1998.
I was pleasantly suprised since I believed these maps were lost for all eternity.
Playing them after such a long time, brought back good memories. tv1998 might
offer veteran doomers a chance to relive some of the good old days.
Eventhough these maps will not live up to modern standards, I decided to release them.
I also included 2 maps I made in early 1999 (map 12 and 06 ('structure 999' & 'begin')).
