These are garbage. If you think this is good, get the PPL160 sound patches and you'll get much better music (you won't believe your hears). PPL means Pro Patches Light(Lite?). I'd better use Windows' poor midi support or OPL than these patches. You can find them here in the folder PPL160: http://www.mediafire .com/file/8mezjdsyuj 3/GUS+Install.7z

Never been a big fan of these. I guess they sound a little better than the default patches if you still have a GUS, but if you're going the softsynth route, I'd recommend just grabbing an SC-55 soundfont over these. Doom's music will sound better with it, and so will a lot of other games composed on one.

Everything about this is awesome, but the overdriven and distorted guitars suck ass. Oh, well. This is the only sound font I can get timidity for zdoom to load.

If you have no good hardware MIDI synth available, THIS is *THE* solution for really good MIDI sound in Doom, Heretic & Co! Maybe a bit difficult to set up in ports like ZDoom (you need to edit both the ZDoom ini and timidity.cfg to make it work), but the effort is worth it - it's way better than the standard GUS patch set. Be sure to use these patches with Timidity, though - GUS emulation sounds worse. I recommend using "gravis.cfg" as standard config to use.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
