About This File

Seven levels for any limit removing port.

All the levels are built in grid with the 32x32 dimensions. It means all vertexes lay on knots of a grid 32 in editor, but this rule does not extend on things. New textures and flats were not allowed.

All the maps except map05 can be run in Doom2-Plus after adding sprites (deutex -as 32innail.wad) and applying the deh (except first section with high quality sound replacement for ports). PrBoom-Plus or GZDoom are recommended.

Gorgeous mapset with an impressive work on the atmosphere, using only the stock textures and the limitation of the 32 grid doesn't detract at all from the experience. The first 4 maps have a more slow gameplay and they display a strong mood. MAP05 is a sudden change with a huge hellish level that takes a lot from the original Deus Vult. MAP07 is rather anticlimatic after the boss battle of MAP06, nonetheless it's a a good level. There are some nice new sounds and the harmless enemy shadow is a cool and spooky addition.

A must play.

Map07 was an anticlimax, consider 06 the climax. Other than that, this was AWESOME. Map02-05 were incredible, Map01 a good introduction, Map06 a very good boss. If you find 06 impossible, find the 3 easy-to-find secrets in the boss room and it'll be just fine; just be patient. Map02-04 had incredible atmosphere and never felt lonely or overly easy despite low monster counts. Map05 is an excellent slaughter map, on the scale of DV. Really can't think of any to complain on except Map07. 5/5 and beyond!

i really wanted to give this 5 because it's Eternal, but the awful flow of the first few maps as well as some stupid platform sections prevented me. at least MAP05 was lots of fun.

It's an oldschool wad and I think it is overrated. The maps are too big and you often don't know where to go next, but the environment looks ok... Maybe a bit too less enemies besides map 05 (best map here). 3/5

Life is full of sad-ists hey? You sound like one of them. And yes, we do get pleasure from having the privilege of playing through awesome levels such as these - not sexual gratification as you might imply! The archvile at the start was awesome. Just because you died by it... :P :P

I dont know these obvious reasons^. Map05 can cause lag in old computers (Prboom go fine), could be a reason. I played it in GZdoom. It's very difficult and long too, could be a reason, but if one has time is not impossible. Map05 is one of the most challenging and funny maps for me, although it can be frustrating in UV. 5/5

Once again, Eternal has delivered us another perfect masterpiece. An atmospheric and visual sensation. Only Eternal can deliver wads with consistent originality, visuals, and atmosphere. I wouldn't change a thing about this wad. 7 brilliantly designed and painstakingly (I'm sure) created levels, all with an original final boss done well? Eternal you are (as you have been since Epic 2) my favorite mapper. Great Job! :)

No game in history will ever reach the atmosphere of hell that this map has. Easily one of the best maps I've ever played.

Map 5 is a masterpiece. I havent finished in UV, it's very hard in HMP. A bit laggy, except for prboom+. 5/5

I skipped MAP05 for obvious reasons, but overall 32 Inch Nails was a brilliantly sculpted masterpiece. Then again, what else would you expect from Eternal? 4 stars. - Obsidian

MAP01-4 and MAP07 are pretty good (a nice Doom3 sort of style). On the other hand, MAP05 is very hard, and very easy to waste hours on if you don't work out the right route quickly, and MAP06 the monster was a nice idea, but too hard. 4* overall

Nice atmosphere and ideas. Can be a bit unforgiving at times unless you know the maps before hand. MAP05 is too big and slow I'll return to play it in the future. The sprite, graphic and sound replacements are decent. A bit empty / boring at times and some annoying traps but a great map set anyway. 5/5 dwrTag

Interesting concept. The levels are pretty cool but my god are they dull a shit to play. The modern concept of spawning enemies (a awful concept of more modern shooters) is present also.

For the most part this wad is really fun to play with well designed levels as we have come to expect from Eternal. The map 05 slaughterfest was out of place though. Why do so many mappers feel the need to suddenly ramp up the difficulty to insanity after a few levels? HR style wads/levels can be great as long as the gameplay is of high quality too. Unfortunately map 05 wasn't. Still a 4/5 if just for sure time and effort. -TRRobin.

      I actually used this files MORDETHfb97-dsf but its the same wad with lumps properly organized.    Simply... WOW!!!   Love it from start! I really like exploratory maps with clever puzzles and secrets and pretty good encounters. The maps are neat, detailed, have a really good atmosphere and great architecture. The resources are used in a way that one can't ignore; its just really organic and nothing standouts as unfitting. Perfect texture work, indeed. (Don't know why, but while playing it, Suspended in Dusk by Espi comes to my mind... maybe some of the texture usage remind me of that amazing work).
      The dehacked monsters are good and interesting alternatives.
      I love the fog effect and how it dissapeard when you are near and then appeard again when you look at it from afar. If this was the demo, and after seeing some juicy screenshots, i just can drool dreaming about this long awaited mapset finally being released.

      Thanks MORDETH for this demo, its something really inspiring.
      I doesn't care to wait another twenty years to finally play the complete version ;)

      Slaughtermap for beginners. Simple but effective level design, impressive architecture, great lighting. Arch-viles are a bit overused.
      Played with Meatgrinder mod.

      What a set of maps. At first I only expected random maps that use use Mario textures, but this is so much more. From the cutesy bullet puffs of the weapons, to the plasmagun sprites, there have been more changes than "just" textures. All together they form a very, very coherent picture which makes you almost disappointed, that there are no Mario enemies in the game.   Even then, the actual quality of the maps surprised me quite a bit as well. Very, very fun to play from the beginning to the end, with admittedly frustrating parts (the map featuring only Archies and Revenants or the map featuring ice and wind. Oh god, the ice...). These are not just simple techbases given a Mario texture paint, these maps are well thought out and tailored to the textures, ranging from grass lands, over desert to impressive castle scapes and even an air ship. I played on TYTD not only because I am a wimp, but also because those maps are really, really hard and have some frustrating moments. It speaks for this mapset's quality, though, that you can live with those moments and still enjoy the maps.   Try it out at least.

      I really dig it! Its feel like a Ultimate Doom take of TNT, but its not at that level either.
      Its a great adventure mapset, leaning more to the  atmospheric and realistic architecture.
      First and second episodes are amazing. Introducing the new enemies as the maps unfold. But midway around episode three it start to lose steam, with a serie of really short maps and then maps really similar to the originals, this is not bad at all, just feels a little uninspireds. Fourth episode on the other hand, feels extremely rushed, with a lot of monotexturing and undetailed areas. Its not bad, but coming as the ending episode it could be much better, specially with the degree of detailing the author showed on the precious episodes.

      All the episodes offers a good challenge, even on Hurt Me Plenty, but don't expect anything near the difficulty of NEIS.   All in all, being one of the few complete Ultimate Doom megawads, its pretty good and i liked the new enemies sprites and the music used, almost all the time.

      No, this is not good by any stretch. First 25 levels feel like they are all the same - colorless, flat, dull and bland. Next 3 look like deathmatch arenas with a handful of monsters. Again, all pretty much the same. The last two are pitch black mazes - oh what fun. As for the secret levels - I abandoned both. Map31 is a maze alternating between pitch darkness and flashing primary colours and map 32 is simply an incomprehensible mess. Possibly acceptable if you just want to kill some time with mindless point and shoot, but not what I would call an enjoyable Doom experience. At least it avoids degenerating into slaughter.
