1994 Tune-up Community Project

About This File

Everybody knows that most maps from 1994 are pretty terrible, but what if we took maps from the archive that permit modification and then redetailed them?

The purpose of this community wad is to improve on maps from 1994. Most maps from that time had strong layouts, but poor design decisions such as misaligned textures, bad texture choices, hidden doors and mandatory secrets to progress. The aim of this project is to fix those problems and take what was already strong about the original maps and improve it.

It's a nice idea, nice achievements in getting "re-tuned" old maps, texture placements look nice.

Overal maps are nice.  But I really felt very akward with the last 3 maps, over 300 monsters on map28 and 29?  And the map30 is a huge big mess of gameplay, had to cheat to be able to beat that map.

The idea is awesome, some maps still suffer from some flaws :/

Very well done megawad, when you progress play each levels original first before heading to the next level of the remake, its gives the best experience of playing a good old raw 94 level, and the way its done now, good job. 5/5 -Archy-

Great idea, and great execution. Hardly any gameplay flaws, and visual design ranges from solid to prodigal. There's a few very minor texture misalignments in places, and in one map (I'm too lazy to check which) it's possibly to get stuck in a fairly major way by revisiting a previously-visited area, but those are forgivable. Hope there'll be a 1994 Tune-Up #2! 4.5/5 - ZZ

I like this project and many maps in the WAD, but some maps like map25 and later maps just made me want skip them at all, but at least, they're FAR better than their 1994 counter-part. I can't get those hater why hates but who care, this wad isn't so great but have some fun with them for sure. 3.5/5 -playerlin

This gets 0 stars because of the sheer hypocrisy of it. A newbie puts genuine effort into a new and original project and uploads it only to be rewarded with ridicule and the project is called a pile of steaming crap; these hypocrites re-do maps somebody else created and they're applauded and it's called a work of art. For their next trick, perhaps the DoomWorld community could make a Xerox of the Mona Lisa and try to claim credit for it as well.

^Haters gonna hate. I for one love the idea of taking the 94 levels and tune them to 21st Century standards. Gameplay stays true to the original level while at the same time having more challenge with the added Doom 2 elements. 5/5 -Impboy

Pretty good megawad with lots of nice visuals but its let down by the overall easy gameplay where in a lot of maps the shotgun is overused to kill easy baddies like shotgunners and imps. Despite the easy difficulty a very good effort.

I'd give it 5 stars but the midi originally coupled with UNDERSEA.WAD is absent. For shame! I will still give it 4 stars, however.

Nice job all round team - very glad to have contributed to this laudable salvaging effort! The one problem that I'd imagine it is quite easy to have with the maps here is that sometimes the source material really was a bit beyond saving though. 4* -Phobus

Map levels vary a bit, but overall absolutely worth a try. Solid 4/5

Pretty good. Knee-Deep in 1994, eh? :P Of course, some of the detailing is just too much at times. A lot of these might as well be original maps, for what it's worth. 3/5 --Ceeb

One of the best WADs out there, period. Every single map is unique and enjoyable in their own way - even the gauntlet type maps, which I usually deplore, manage to be pretty fun without using cheap tactics and unfair odds (except for Map 28, which was an unpleasant pain unfortunately). Everybody involved should feel proud of doing such a great job.

Excellent old school dooming. It's like going back in time and playing the best maps that could be possibly done. I also haven't had this much fun on a wad in ages. This gets no less than 5 Stars from me.

Extremely nice, but a few game bugs that try to stick to their original wads. 4/5

      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.
