Is it possible to...? [idgames archive question]

Recommended Posts

rerelease the same wad? and call it v2.0 or something? like do rehaul of a level based on a review? I imagine probably not or there would be tons of those kind of wads coming in but I thought it was worth a shot.

Well, in the text file template, there is a field for "Update to...", but I imagine it would be better to release it as a seperate file, for sake of cleanliness (don't want the old, bad reviews mixing with the newer ones, and the text files don't update on the Idgames Archive interface here at Doomworld).

but what about the name? are you suggesting renaming a re-vamped old wad and hoping no one notices?

Post it with a similar title - if your old wad was "level", call the new one "levelnew" or something.

The procedure is to upload it with the same name, and to note on the text file that you updated it. You can even include the old release date on the text. The whole point of the line on the template is to encourage people to not upload 3 versions of each wad. If historical versions are important to you, or you can't sleep at night because you think someone may be reading an old review and downloading the new version, set up a home page on Geocites or something and note in the text file that old versions of the wad may be found there.
