About This File

This is an effort at converting the much-loved Quake DM3 level (by John Romero) to Doom2. I tried to make it as realistic as possible without adding textures (otherwise it wouldn't properly be Doom2 would it? :) But I did add ambient sounds (very cool)

DM3: The Abandoned Base is one of the six deathmatch levels found in Quake 1, probably the most popular one. This is a recreation of it in Doom. Only makes use of Doom textures (Quake textures are not imported), but some of the sound effects have been replaced with those from Quake. Also makes some clever use of monsters embedded in the wall to provide ambient sound effects. The same level can also be found as part of Decamatch 2 (DECA2.WAD).

I seem to remember that John Romero had some good words for this when it came out.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.

      Would not play with PRBoom, with errors about missing files : FluidR3_GM.sf2 and STARTAN2.  These were not provided in the zip file.

      The map author left the words "how not" out of his description, I'll let you figure out where.

      More tripe.  Huge badly designed and featureless rooms that give you leg ache just watching going through them. The opposition from monsters is pitiful.

      A busted crock of shit. The map is random scribble, it's insane.  Why do they upload this tripe?  The third screenshot above gives an idea what to expect.
