Title : 300 minutes of /vr/
Filename : 300minvr.wad
Release date : 2017-09-16 (updated 2017-10-05)
Author : Various users of 4chan's /vr/ board
Email Address : [redacted] (manager/compiler/uploader)
Other Files By Author : 200 minutes of /vr/, others (see threads for details)
Misc. Author Info : https://boards.4chan.org/vr/catalog#s=doom%20thread
Description : A megawad compilation of maps made by /vr/ users.
Participants were asked to make a map in 300 minutes,
with an initial two-week deadline period for
submission. There was no particular theme beyond
vanilla compatibility / no custom textures.
At deadline 25 maps had been submitted, so it was
decided to allow extra time to complete the set;
also the previously submitted maps were bugfixed and
polished, and finally the wad released to /idgames.
Post-release update: the initial /idgames upload was
found to be incomplete, so it was agreed to allow a
further period of updates, bugfixing, and polishing.
Please note the maps are intended for pistol starts.

Music: Speed Trial by Cyber-Rainforce
Title: Curse of the Donuts
Music: Water World - Donkey Kong Country 3 (midi by Jay Reichard)
Title: Subterranean Hideout
Music: Upstate Devil by alfonzo
Title: Warehouse Cleanup
Author: Nuclear Potato
Music: Prison from Final Doom, remixed by Jay Reichard
Title: Bay 54
Title: Top Secret Labradoodle
Music: Enya MIDI http://www.sysrq.info/~stv/enya/midi/sm/joh_smao.mid
Title: Moonlit Harbor
Music: from Deus Vult II
Title: Go Slowly
Music: Silence from F-Zero X
Note: It is intended that the player can reach the exit "early".
There is a choice of three routes, each with its own key.
Title: Crash Site
Music: Self composed MIDI from author
Title: Supreme Webbed Court
Music: Flip the Switch by alfonzo
Note: As submitted, the map had thousands of tiny detail sectors.
It also had enough ammunition to annihilate a small country.
Both have been greatly reduced, for the respective sakes of
visplanes, and sanity.
Title: Blue Sanctuary
Author: Hebridean Isle
Music: Music: Sinking Old Sanctuary from Castlevania Bloodlines
Title: The Room Out of Shape
Music: Gatorade Nightmare by Jimmy
Title: Choose Your Path
Note: There was a note here about 100% kills being impossible by design,
but it's gone now.
Music: Self composed MIDI by author
Note: If you're stuck, look for false walls.
Title: Saturday Night Codeine
Music: Prog Rock from The Incredible Machine
Title: Blood Feud
Note: Post-release work done to this probably went a bit beyond the
remit of simple bugfixing, but the final confrontation couldn't
be left alone after feedback mocked how easy it was to skip the
whole thing entirely.
Title: Welcome to the Park
Music: D_TENSE from cchest3.wad, by John "The Green Herring" Cage
Note: Nothing in this map is unintentional. The lack of music, the
final battle that is so optional it doesn't even start until
you're standing on the exit, dozens of apparently spurious
secret areas (update: these are gone now)
Music: "Course Select" from Thunder Force IV
Note: You can run out of visplanes if you are terribly unlucky. Doing
something about this would likely ruin the map though. It has
already been cut down significantly.
Title: The Punch Dimension
Music: Age of Empires 2 OST (I Will Beat on Your Behind)
Note: Unfortunately relies on ZDoom physics for punching a few
monsters, but they're all avoidable, or can eventually be dealt
with in other ways. 100% kills wasn't really intended, but is
possible. One monster being stuck in a wall is intentional.
Title: Thy Flesh on a Platter
Title: Mt. Heck
Music: Agony Rhapsody (TNT)
Title: No Archviles Allowed
Title: Praise Vanilla Wizard
Title: Perfect Hatemail
Title: In Your Ass
Author: Party Boy
Music: Speed Of Light .midi was downloaded from FreeMidi.org
Title: Icon of Shame
Title: Ultra-Progressive World
Music: "Westopolis" by Viscra Maelstrom
Title: Spear of Insanity
Music: "Getaway" by stewboy
Note: Map required considerable visplane reduction; some doors were
not meant to keep closing, but it was found to be necessary to
keep the visible detail down. cf. ksutra, pl2.
Note: This map was a late submission, but was included anyway.
