Playstation DOOM Reloaded - 66 Levels for GZDoom (V1.0 Released)

Recommended Posts

Those levels really need more traps and height variation if Level 34 is any indicative of the rest. At the moment, it's basically like this: enter a room, kill all the enemies inside (you can camp out literally every fight by the door), proceed to the next room, kill all the enemies there, rinse and repeat. Linear progression can be okay if used interestingly enough, but in most cases it gets dull very quickly. Also, just using the PSX lighting + monster sounds does not a good PSX doom sequel/tribute make. ID's level design choices made for some interesting cases, including progression and monster encounters. Didn't mean to be harsh or anything, just hope this was somewhat helpful.

@Firedust nah this is just an early map. They get longer and tougher as they go along. Including a lot less linear areas and more height variation. This level was created just after the development of Fall of Triton which was my first ever megawad/big project and the best way to describe it was what you said above. So that is why they are "somewhat similar". 

 

Over time, I have improved a lot more and focus a lot more on unilinear and unpredictable gameplay. 

 

Thanks for the advice though.

As someone who never got a chance to play the Playstation version, I'm kind of interested in this, even if it's not a one-to-one conversion.

The new levels will not be as flat and monotonous as in "Triton", I hope so. Still can be the author learned mapping and not makes more clumsy locations. Some effects of the port will not be able to mask the low quality.

@WORLD_3AT3R Unfortunately, I have not played your wad yet. But I definitely plan to!

 

Thanks for the kind words! Usually when making maps., I try to build on the atmosphere as much as possible. Taking advantage of the sounds, music & lighting from PSX Doom.

 

I recommend playing through the original PS1 Doom & Final Doom for inspiration. Also check out the Threshold of Pain series as those levels have awesome atmosphere.

No, it contains DECORATE content that could mess with mods if you try to apply them.

I see some criticism on the mapping, but I find it to be dripping with nostalgia. You can definitely see the inspiration (the fact that some of it is modified architecture is a plus) from the original.

Does this project progress?

 

 

It does. Part 1 (Levels 1-30) are in the finishing stage and we are very close to releasing it. Part 2 is also about 80% complete.

Nice, I am playing PSX Doom on an emulator on my TV with a gamepad and it is really atmospheric. I feel I am going to go on a PSX Doom inspired wads binge :D

This is a real love letter for the PlayStation version of Doom and it's almost a must-have to play it with the PSSFX wad pack as well for the pure PS feel with those sound effects ;)

I've been playing through PDR and I think I found a typo in the text intermission screen after beating MAP08.... "Berserk Back" Did you mean Berserk Pack?

Looks great! I'm hoping the screen shake when shooting can be disabled. I assume yes since it's GZDoom. Downloading now!
