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

      I tried to give this a fair shake. I really did. By the time I got to map15, it became apparent the same tropes and traps were employed across the megawad. Not a fan of teleporting hoards of monsters in your face once you pickup a key, nor ammo shortages, clueless teleport spots, simple design loops, bland lighting, the same attack vectors of facing off enemies in a T-intersection once you open a door to a room, the same corridor-room-cave-outdoor themes sprinkled throughout with a dash of hellspots. I saw potential in the spider factory, but it too fell short of impressive. Obviously the author put great effort into this, but the maps seemed far too similar, stale, and stagnant for my tastes.

      That's simply Descent's OPL bank I see. This and that are very alike. IMO

      I must say what an excepcional WAD...i have been playing for quite some time and each level its an absolute masterpiece of design. I got till the level 30 and man...when you reach there you are absolutly tired of killing monsters...level 29 was my "enough" and when i got to level 30 it was like "ok...im done". Its absolute carnage in a good sense of way of course...but for me it was enough. Must say this is a kind of a map that ill take example for my mappings. 5 Stars to the wad because there is no more to give. I repeat, an excepcional Wad a brutal challenge on dificulty...simply great. Excelent Work !

      The map looks great, but seeing multiple pictures of Jack making silly faces plastered everywhere in certain parts of the map can really kill the horror vibe.

      The author utilized Dehacked. The wad is tough, can get very slaughter-ish and hectic sometimes, but it's fair. Also, the wad featured a pretty humorous story™. Check it out, but remember to play on HNTR/HMP if you aren't used to slaughterwads.
