About This File

I hope you didn't loaded my first Santa Rosa WAD; it was a shame. I have worked during the last weeks to give you the improved version I promissed you. And if you were disapointed with the first one (I´m sure you were), try this one and you will inmediately note the GREAT DIFFERENCE. First, I have to say that not all the things in this WADs were done by me, so I have to give credits to the following persons: *Steve McCrea, Simon Wall, & Elias Papavassilopoulos (sm@eng.cam.ac.uk) for some textures borrowed from TRINITY.WAD *Norman Scott/Tim Scott (norman.scott@flatland.com / tscott@plains.nodak.edu) for the sprites borrowed from their R2wolf.zip *Olivier Montanuy ( montanuy@dmi.ens.fr ) for the great pine borrowed from SWGFX4.zip * The creators of Wolfenstein * The creators of Doom * The creators of WinTex * The creators of Deu2 * The creators of Doom Cad * Bill Neisius for his audio and graphic editors for both Doom and Wolfenstein

Now, here comes the description of what I have done: In the Santa Rosa 8 WAD, you can know by yourself how is my house here in Metepec, Mexico. I put any single detail of my house in this new Level including those archs in my garage (I hope you like them). I even added and changed some textures sprites to give my WAD the real appearence of my house. I changed some sprites such as the Medikit, the Compumap, the trees and the columns. And for some nostalgic remembrance, I placed some of the stuff from Wolfstein3D. You won't be disapointed with the new sounds I added. I recorded them from a popular Video Game of an earth worm in a powerful suit.In addition to all this, I improved the level, repairing all those stupid bugs and adding more and better distributed enemies and weapons, more locked doors, better shaded zones, a new city sky, improved textures and more.

I have to warn you that before you play this WADs, you have to run INSTALL.BAT, to complete the sprites and flats. Just copy the files (including deusf.exe) to your DOOM ][ directory and run Install.

Y AQUI VA ALGO PARA TODOS LOS DOOM ADICTOS DE MEXICO: ! QUE DE POCA MADRE ESTA EL NIVEL QUE HICE! ! Y QUE VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!

A final word: DOOM ][ is an hiper-very-excelent game: don't copy it illegally.

Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)

The readme made me smile. "DOOM ][ is an hiper-very-excelent game" - damn right. The level itself is rubbish, though, although it's amusing as a manic sensory assault. It's a "my house" map with all the flaws (and were all of these authors *really* multi-millionaires?) , but there are so many samples and new sprites that it's like overdosing on Mountain Dew, which I enjoy. The author invites people to visit him at university, which is charming.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      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.
