Amalgoom: Mixing Doom and Doom 2 [Playtesters wanted!]

Recommended Posts

Shit, i think i should've asked before.

We can talk about that with whoever wants to do those songs.

Club Doom could probably work for MAP34 to be honest. It would be nice to see a nod to the intermission theme though as that plays on MAP34 in the vanilla game.

And i can't wait to play your maps, The Mansion is such an underrated level, and i don't know why midway did such effort of making a whole new level just to not put nazi imagery on the game

They already put in a few other new maps, and they were also working on Doom 64 at the time, so I think it was more of a case of "why not".

Just to let y'all know: I am alive and I am working on Slough-acombs (as I'm calling it), though it's in early stages of development. You can put down my map as "In progress" at this point.

Looking good so far! Try to make some light variations tho, and i would try to keep it as compact as possible, slough of despair feels big, but is actually really short, and the catacombs is also really short, just like any Mcgee level.

This are just suggestions, as i said, it looks good as it is now

I actually had ideas of my own for what the two song combinations could be for MAP33 and MAP34, but I wanted to wait until I had posted the maps before I discussed that. I don't really know how combining Wolfenstein 3D songs with an ambient track and a gabber(?) track would work to be honest, especially in MIDI.

 

How about Read Me While Listening to This (from Doom 2) combined with Wondering About My Loved Ones (from Wolf 3D) for MAP33, as the former plays on MAP33 by default, and both songs are similar in theme? MAP34 could be a mix of the Doom 2 intermission theme (which usually plays on MAP34) and another Wolf 3D theme of whoever decides to do that MIDI's choice.

 

Speaking of my maps; both will be done by the 20th. Had some IRL/non-Doom stuff taking up my time and energy but I should be mostly free to work on this now.

Here's an idea I had the other day. Not sure how well it'd work, since I'm assuming people would be sick of hearing "Running From Evil" three times in a row, but why not combine it with "Get Them Before They Get You" from Wolfenstein 3D? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAXUaaSEp7w

 

I got the idea from MyHouse.WAD, because it seems they did the same thing there, as both tracks play during the first level of each respective game. https://youtu.be/X3zrtIIbEpc?t=355
And I think it'd fit the Mansion map, because what is a mansion if not a big house? So it'd be referencing Doom, Wolfenstein, and even MyHouse.

 

 

I dunno, I thought it'd be cute.

That looks a bit too big for a combination of catacombs and slough of despair, which are both really tight maps. I'm curious to see what you'll make but my first suggestion for now would be to decrease the scale of the map a bit.

Apparently MAP34 uses the Doom 2 title theme by default anyway, so what I said doesn't make much sense. GermanPeter's idea is good.

[Amalgoom Episode 1 - The Red Valley of Death is finally here!]

 

We are proud to announce that Amalgoom Episode 1 is here! Featuring 10 new exclusive levels, new songs and much more! This version has been tested and retested, but bugs may have still lingered, so please report any if you find them. Some maps are still a work in progress and may change in the final version of the project according to players’ feedback. That’s why we emphasize: please give us honest and constructive feedback and criticism. It’s essential for us to improve the maps and make the project much better. 

 

The project was conceived by Johnny Cruelty, who handed the project over to DoomGappy and a team of members. These members were vital for the project to work and it wouldn't be possible to do it without them. Their participation is detailed below, but each one did more than just these general functions.
 

Team members

@DoomGappy: Lead, playtester mapping feedback, DoomWorld  announcements.
@The Royal We: Co-lead, playtaster, organizer, titlepic artist for PrBoom based source ports.

@Cutman: Tracking song and map submissions, playtesting, level name logos, general guidance.
@SpaceCat_2001: Playtester, skyboxes, coolest dude ever.

@tamara mochaccina: Build compiling, intermission texts, level graphics.

@DankMetal: OST manager, playtester.

@Astro X: Playtester.
@HEXWALKERPlayester and CREDIT image.

Timolotl (artist who’s not in DoomWorld): Titlepic artist for ZDoom based source ports.

A discord server was also created when the project was passed into my hands. It was meant only for the project, but it grew to be a very cool little space to have fun with fellow doomers. For now, the major focus is still the project. Thus, I’m opening the server invitation here, though there is still a little screening process before people are accepted there. You can join us there through the following link: https://discord.gg/ab9Asv7F

I can't stress enough how this young lady is awesome. She's done a lot to see this project through and also made KICKASS songs. I had to gush out about it in public for a bit because it would feel unfair otherwise.

However, I seem unable to get all secrets in MAP01. Is the tunnel that leads to the Chainsaw supposed to count as a secret?

 

Also, are you saving the diorama for the full release?

Boom format, right? It doesn't say that explicitly in this thread.

Fuck, we forgot to put that

Yeah, it is boom format, to make different episodes with the magic of umapinfo

It is boom format, but it has two different titlescreens depending on the port it's played. I hope you have fun, plums.

Hmm, there might be some sort of bug with a secret tag in there. I'll take a look at it. This map hasn't been altered in a long time. Secret with a spoiler tag:

 

Spoiler

There is a very thin sector with a secret tag inside the hallway to the right of the entryway-like imp lift. It's almost unnoticeable, but I don't know if that's a a bug or intended. Can you do some passovers there? Coordinates: 480, 1184.

Map 05 was the last of the maps to be made, in a hurry, and so there are still some parts to be fixed. We welcome all criticism and feedback! It was a pleasure to work with @tamara mochaccina on this map, and I say the same for @DoomGappy on map 02 and map 11 (wait for it!).

@DoomGappy Ah yes, I got it. Thank you.

 

MAP02 seems to be causing me a similar problem: I got 7 out of 8 secrets, but there are several locations that feel like they could be considered a secret (e.g. the Computer Map, the Quake E1M2 homage area, etc.), but when I get to them, nothing happens.

I just did a run and also couldn't get all secrets, and I made the map, ahahaahaha. I'll look into it. I'll post some videos of my runs, I was dying to record stuff again, specially for this project. Here is map01:

Last one of the night. It felt good playing these without looking for stuff to tweak or fix, and just to admire a job well done and relax. Hope everyone has fun with these little things we made!
