About This File

6 Levels I made during the Epoch of Lawlessness, 1995. {(c) S.A. 1987}

These have been designed for single player mode, but Deathmatch and Multiple Player games are possible, they just aren't optimised for them. Feel free to do this yourself.

I could have made an incredibly large single level instead of doing 6 separates, but Doom isn't meant to be played in twenty second bursts while your hard disk desperately tries to catch up on your killings. Also, attention spans waver when you are forced to trek across an immense landscape with your blue key to where you think you saw a blue door. No thanks.

Any comments welcome. The fact that these were all designed and tested on a 16MHz 386sx should make you appreciate them more. I hope. I've tried them on a DX2, and they were fine, if a little easier. {Thanks to Jason Roycroft for use of his little gem of a PC!}

When I first started E1M3, I was actually basing the level on the second floor of the Regional Technical College in Tallaght, Dublin. But it was when I had the mezzanine, the foyer, stairs and labs done that I realised my college wouldn't make for a decent Doom level. So everything after that is my imagination. Now there you go.

There is a hidden swimming pool on E1M4, and credits for the original concept go to the author of Swimpool.wad and to Jens Hykkelbjerg, who keeps a good web page on Doom special effects. Dont try and fix any problems with sectors 108 - 110 because they only work by being inconsistent.

I've recently added some sounds to the wad, and they replace a few death sounds and others. They are all sampled from audio CD's, so you may recognise a bit of Big Black, The Jesus Lizard, Helmet, Front 242 and Nine Inch Nails.

Also contained in the zip is a DeHackEd patch... just something to try to add to the whole Git thing. Edit it freely, because it was made from a lot of other DeHackEd patches. I included it simply because its my favourite one.

Copy them, distribute them...blah...etc...If I chance upon these levels on a bbs or ftp site someplace and this file isnt with them there'll be Hell On Earth. A game which I have never played at home, due to the fact that I dont own a real machine yet.

------------------------------------- To run the levels, unzip to your doom directory and enter: GIT -------------------------------------

I was told that E1M2 is tough to complete without taking a look at the map in DEU. To help you all out, I recorded an .lmp of yours truly finishing the level. To see it in action, make sure all of the Git files are in your Doom directory and then enter: GITHELP This will play the demo for you.

To create the DeHackEd version, move Git.deh to your DeHackEd directory, then run DeHackEd and press (in this order): Z (zaps changes) L (then, when prompted:) GIT W (writes changes). Then go and play DOOMHACK with the Git levels.

Just wow. Endless mazes, random teleports, switches with unknown purpose, doors that don't work, pits you can't escape... Icing on cake is idiotic "funny" sound effects. Bravo! Worst piece of garbage I've wasted time on in ages.

I was tired when I played this and played only a part of 1&4. Rather huge rooms with textures and something in the middle and some monsters. Though monsters invulnerability. Nothing special apart from the textfile, I think I give it 2/5. coldfusio

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.

      Done with these settings:   - GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. - Ultra-Violence. - Pistol starts. - Saves every 10 minutes or no saving.   This is a funny memewad of concepts and tricks from the Boom engine. It's anything alike classic conventional Doom gameplay, ergo the chosen compatibility, and brings a specific gimmick in a satirical form for each map. Aesthetics are part of the idea too, by way of monotextured layouts of the simplest geometry, such as to find out which sector/linedef has an action, and mostly grey and brown as the predetermined colours, with a bit of green and red bricks in some levels. Besides, skies made of one resized texture, and music from TV series and movies, the ideal recipe for an experience in Doom one doesn't opt for everyday.    Concept-wise, it's much appreciable to experience each map on its own, even more when the idea of carryovers will only block your progress in survival maps: better leave in bad shape and restart freshly than carry less than 15 hit points and be eternally murdered by former human ambushes. This example is one of Pinchy's numerous parodies of unconventional/inconvenient situations we've all been through in Doom. Humping walls to find progress like in primitive maps, having the screen constantly tinted because of pickups, being harassed by incoming projectiles from monsters out of your FOV, that fear of eating your own splash damage because the door can close at any moment, these are just a few of the most hilarious cases I've seen here. It wouldn't be bad to say not all of the gimmicks were clear enough to me, still don't know what's the meme in map 13. Same in some of the later maps, they seemed to have less ridiculous and more serious content, or at least not something different from earlier maps, but if anything I support that seemingly passion for zombiemen hordes, which held up my enjoyment most of the time. Funnily enough, it wasn't until the very last map that I laughed out loud at doomguy's surroundings, and there was nothing else than THE END messages under a sky in fireblu. Guess I couldn't hold my laugh for too long.   Secret-wise, it's interesting to me that in a wad of this category the only existing secrets serve as a combination of the gimmick in question and helpful extras for survival. The second map's way to hide secret sectors is quite funny indeed. As for favourite maps, I found the concepts in map 02, 04, 07, 09 and 15 to entertain me more, last one because it tickled my fancy for exploration. Some of the rest like 05, 07, 11 and 14 woke my other feelings, not only they made me laugh but also feel tense, those imps and troopers could not beat me!... not more than twice...   Overall, even if not all of the maps made sense, or had strange concepts I didn't understand, the point was to laugh, and I believe that was achieved here. Because laughter is good for the organism, check this out. My rate is 7/10.

      Not too shabby. Very intricate level with halls & rooms to explore taking up almost every square inch of the castle. You do have to look through pretty much the whole place to find the necessary keys, but you'll have fun in the process. Most of the gameplay is pretty simple run & gunning of mooks but there are a couple neat traps, like the teleporting/telefragging area and the exit. Despite the large and labyrinthine design of the level, it doesn't get boring or easy to get lost in due to the abundance of landmarks (mainly sector furniture) and high interconnectedness. Texture alignment is quite bad, but oh well. There are some replaced sounds which are a bit odd but not bad, which kind of encapsulates the whole wad.
