About This File

One level for any boom compatible and limit removing ports. PrBoom-Plus or GZDoom are recommended. To play this PWAD file, unzip it into the directory with your PWADs then start: glboom-plus.exe -file epic.wad -complevel 9 (g)zdoom.exe -file epic.wad

Important:

Do not play map05 in the current prboom (up to 2.4.8 for now), because of:

a) All existing versions of prboom are buggy on levels with big open areas - precision problems. The latest Eternity release (3.33.33) also can't handle map05 correctly - the same precision problems. Use the latest SVN alphas.

b) The current glboom-plus (2.4.8.2.beta) is much faster on levels with sectors which have too many lines. I got 80 fps in glboom-plus instead of 50 in glboom at map05.

c) Vanilla GLBoom doesn't have an option for quality rendering and it is very noticeable on some levels, especially on the big tower at map05 and in the second room at map03 - big white strips and dots on corners. The effect doubles on ATI cards. Light sky is a headache of prboom. So gl_render_precise should be 1. I hope this variable will be removed in the future versions and quality mode will be forced.

Note: gl_depthbuffer_bits in glboom-plus.cfg should be 24 or 32 to avoid some rare small glitches.

Yo can download the latest prboom-plus here: http://prboom-plus.sourceforge.net/history.html

Really cool map set and well designed: Not too difficult but challenging enough, good balance and placement of ammo and monsters. Music is OK, at least it's original (in the sense that I haven't heard them before). Apart from the train map they are of good size, not too big but I got a little lost here and there. Just missed the BFG, and oh, it's only 5 maps. 3,5 stars, rounded up it becomes 4. Great stuff.

The file is not corrupt now at least on the Germany mirror, but the size in header is incorrect. The correct value is 3276KB. Each level has a unique sub-style: Duke, Call of Duty in Africa, Eternal, Train attack and Big Bada Boom. I liked all of them much.

MAP04 is a ripoff of E1M4 of Phobos: Anomaly Reborn.

This was a lot of fun. It took a while, but I never got lost or confused, and the battles were always great. The graphics were top-notch, some of the best, and the final map really lives up to the title of this WAD. Good work :) 4.5/5

nice design and overall very good gameplay, things are very good executed, you sometimes can get lost and there are sometimes switches where you don't know what they do, nonetheless it's brilliant 5/5

It's about damn time something interesting and cool gets released onto the /idgames archives instead of those shitty "jokewads". These were really impressive maps. The new textures were a very nice touch. That tank on that first egypt level and the train map were pretty cool. The last map is very big. There are plenty of intense fire fights. It's a shame that it's only 5 levels long. Aside from that, this wad definitely deserves this score: 5/5

I just finished this this 5 map pack, and I really enjoyed it! The tower on MAP05 really gave the impression of an immense, imposing structure. Another aspect I liked was that the effect of a switch was often visible through a window, or otherwise obvious. The Description is a bit off-putting; I played this in combination with the Real Guns Hardcore mod, with no problems, no special config necessary. 4/5

Nice graphical edits, great use of the Eternal Doom resources and a very cool Indiana Jones style to the whole deal. Loved it, although I found that the 2nd and 4th maps were the hardest, and the final map was actually rather easy. Great show all the same though, so that's another 5* for this author.

      My new favourite set of 32 maps. Definitely the best MegaWAD that Skillsaw has ever made, destroying Valiant. Lots of unexpectedly cool ideas can be found within these solid maps. From the very first level with the neon "Wolf Warp" you know that you're in for a real treat. "Leave your Sol Behind" also blew me away with the whole space ship travel gimmick.   In terms of difficulty: I was playing with Project Brutality on its equivalent of Hurt Me Plenty, so that amped up the difficulty considerably. A couple areas really constrict you for ammo, and according to Skillsaw that was supposed to be a main feature of the WAD but was dropped for a majority of the maps. Occasionally you encounter some slaughter-like areas and maps but nothing that got bland or seemed like a crutch for bad level design. You will face a considerable number of Cyberdemons and Spider Masterminds, which is par-for-the-course when it comes to custom Doom maps.   In my opinon, some guest maps sucked (Nectar Flow) while others fit very well (Culture Shock, Acerols-Orion). Maybe some could say that the second episode did start to blend slightly together from level to level due to the visuals, but I would also say that the second episode had the best content for the MegaWad.   So all in all I'd definitely recommend this Wad to anyone who plays Doom and is looking for a beacon in Doom map design.

      I made the mistake of putting this on UV for my first playthrough. Oops. It was insanely brutal and I didn't have a lot of fun with it. However, after checking out the readme, as suggested I went back for another run on HMP. It's impressive to see the huge difference in difficulty and I appreciate the effort in differentiating the various skill level choices. I definitely recommend new players play it on HMP or lower, that way you can really appreciate the excellent architecture and interesting color scheme, as well as that soothing DKC music that makes for a unique vibe. 4/5 for a HMP playthrough. The only thing lacking here is the amount of maps, and that's OK. I'd just love to see more in this style.   Rating when played on UV: 2/5. For extreme masochists only.

      It's a very impressive megawad with a nice themed ancient Egypt atmosphere, with very nice choosing of textures to contribute to that theme, very nice architecture and impressive (and very risky) twist on the story going from ancient Egypt to alien spaceships, without using hi-pitched colors like in Ancient Aliens. Also, very tough megawad, if you're masochist enough, you can play it with Complex Doom and add LCA for more doses of pain.

      It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development? Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.
