Story : You've been killing demons on the moons of Mars,
in Hell and on Earth for so long, that you've
started accepting the fact that it will never end.
In fact, you're pretty sure you're stuck in some
sort of loop as locales already laid to waste by
you years ago, have started appearing again!
What is this shit!? You sigh, pick up your trusty
firearm for God knows which time, and start doing
what you do best: Killing demons and hoping this
will finally be the end of it...
Description : This is a complete episode 2 replacement for
It's a compilation of all my previously released
Shores of Hell themed pwads. I haven't just
settled on compiling them into one pwad and leaving
it at that. Instead each map has been through hours
and hours of either adjusting or complete revamping
in DoomBuilder to make them stand out as fresh,
new maps that will hopefully give players a solid
and fun gaming experience - even for those of you,
who've played these maps before. I've been just as
serious about this release as all my prior releases
and I really hope it shows.
I thoroughly enjoyed putting this episode together
and I hope you will enjoy playing it!
The episode has been extensively tested on
complevel 2 and 3 to find all gamebreaking bugs.
In short: It should be perfectly safe for you
to use those complevels. If you're the cautious
type, I guess you could just use complevel 9 :)
Note to prBoom users:
The new color palette also affects the
colors of the automap, so secret areas which by
default are marked with purple, are now almost black.
This makes secret areas look like their lines are
hidden, but they are not. They're there; they're
just almost invisible. This is unfortunate, but there
isn't much I can do about it. A solution could be
to change it from purple to another color such as
white: In prBoom go to Options - Setup - Automap -
"Secret sector boundary".
Here's a description of each, individual map,
where they come from and what's been done to them:
!Mild spoilers ahead!
First map from "Rip it, Tear it, Smash it!"
from 2002. Minor adjustments in gameplay and looks.
Level name: "Rip and tear"
Music: "Pipeline" by James "Jimmy" Paddock
From 2002 A.D.O. E2M2. It's from 2000. Has
undergone massive revamping! It was a cramped
level, so it's been opened up in a lot of places,
and a whole lot of other stuff.
Level name: "Beta station"
Music: "Vinefort" by James "Jimmy" Paddock
The first of three parts from "The Wailing Horde",
which was released in 2014. Lots of adjustments
and additions in terms of gameplay and design.
Level name: "The wailing halls"
Music: "Feel the pain" by Paul Corfiatis
Major adjustments and changes when compared to
how this part looked in The Wailing Horde. Second
part of said pwad.
Level name: "Hive of the horde"
Music: "Stormwater" by James "Jimmy" Paddock
Originally my ancient map "The Unknown Chasm"
from 1998. It was a crappy map for Doom II, but
had potential, I guess. Massively revamped to be
released as a submission for a contest on
Doomworld in 2015. Then, lastly, further
refurbished for this mapset.
Level name: "Chasm control"
Music: "Ominus" by Xaser Acheron
Second map from "Rip it, Tear it, Smash it!"
from 2002. Several adjustments and light
refurbishment in terms of both gameplay, layout
Level name: "Smash it!"
Music: "Dance of the trooper" by Paul Corfiatis
This is "High/Low 2" from 2007. Has undergone
a lot of changes big and small throughout the
level in terms of both gameplay and architecture.
Level name: "Hunt 'em highnlow"
Music: "Hysterical horror" by Paul Corfiatis
A never before released level. Originally intended
for Paul Corfiatis' Doomed Space Wars, but I
scrapped it. Took it up again for this mapset
and made it work as a boss level.
Level name: "Domain of evil"
Music: "Sick Building Syndrome"
by James "Jimmy" Paddock
Third part of "The Wailing Horde". Minor
adjustments to accomodate its separation from
the original pwad.
Level name: "The end?"
Music: "Caught in the shadows"
by James "Jimmy" Paddock
