About This File

This wad takes DogTag3, a classic set of team-based multiplayer maps from 1996, and updates them to be compatible with Skulltag's self titled game mode. Seeing as how these are some of the original maps which inspired the Skulltag concept to begin with, I thought it would be fitting to make them more accessible and playable with a modern online source port.

These play similarly to most Skulltag maps, with one interesting difference. Rather than simply grabbing the enemy team's skull from out of their base, two teammates must work together to get the enemy team's skull from their own base. One person must infiltrate the enemy base and flip a switch, which exposes the enemy skull back at their base for a few seconds, allowing the second person to grab it.

Once they do that, the person with the skull has to make a run for the north side of the map where the score zone is. There's a field of lava surrounding the score area that only the person with the skull can enter, but other players have lots of room to try and take that person out from the ground nearby. Once the person scores successfully, they get teleported back to the main area to try and score again.

Here are the changes I made in this version: - Removed the former MAP03 (FragTag). That's for two players, this isn't. - Radiation suits replaced with the red and blue skulls - Replaced the entire complicated scoring lane mechanism with Skulltag's score pillars and some behind-the-scenes ACS scripting - Removed the score displays and other 'indicator' objects since Skulltag does this stuff itself - Added more player starts per map - Replaced some of the MIDI music with better sounding MOD versions - Removed extraneous linedefs and textures - Removed access to the BFG bonus room, since in ST you cannot continue play after the point limit is reached. I considered turning it into a 2-point score zone or something, but for now it's off-limits. Maybe in a later update.

Brilliant! I've been looking for a DeathTag mapset that works within a modern port's score system and framework. I can't believe I didn't realise SkullTag comes from DeathTag... Now it's so obvious!

      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".
