What are you playing now?

Playing through favabeans on ultra violence. Starting every level on pistol start and, with a custom midi wad I made with randomly picked midis I had on hand. Currently completed level 3 and so far demons can't descend stairs and for some reason there is a bfg on the second level. I can see why it is considered a classic, really good level design so far and I even got inspired from a few areas.

Just completed Doom 2 Redux, was doing it in parallel with the original megawad, in UV continuous format. Interesting stuff, and pretty challenging. MAP09 was a bit ridiculous, supposedly based on The Pit, and impossible to get through without quite a few saves. The wad becomes far harder after a death exit in MAP20. At least it avoids resorting to slaughter-type gameplay, and doesn't overuse Archviles, but it does become very reliant on ambushes, which can be an absolute pain. All too often two or three Revenants will spawn in front of you, then almost immediately disappear and rematerialize right behind you. There's also a very annoying puzzle in MAP29 - I eventually 'solved' it, but have no idea how. There's a half decent IoS in the final level, which is preceded by a couple of lively warm up fights.

Been on kind of a wad-bender the last week.  Gone through Coffee Break, DMP2012, Flotsam(just one map), SF2012, and Plutonium Winds.  I'll next be replaying Fruit Salad.

SCYTHE SERIES

 

also TRYING Cheogsh but I get rekt all day every day. extremely difficult level, that. i don't save in single-maps. only if there's a trap where i've died 5+ times, then i'll save right before the trap. that's usually a Quake 1 mission pack thing though, not Doom. considering lightening up on this rule for this map though... it's like 3-4 levels in one...

 

gonna try the Vrack series as well. 

 

i never played user-created Doom maps before February 2020 even though I've had the game since 1997 before i even had a PC. there is so much amazing user created content for the 90s id software titles that puts the base games to shame.

Mayhem18 Orange and Purple on co-op. It's a pretty fun time, though some of the custom monsters aren't that great.

Console Doom. What a weird setup! Have played the first 14 levels (UV continuous, 1 death so far), and it's been Playstation Doom 1 maps interspersed with a few Doom 64 ones. The latter have standard Doom/Doom II monsters, except that the Lost Souls are easier to kill (like their Doom 64 counterparts), but are only as dangerous as their ordinary Doom counterparts.

I'm back to BTSX but this time without 100% and here is a picture. :) I will play it more after sleeping. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I completed the previous levels with 100% before my patience ran out.

Finished Sigil for the first time today on Doom Retro on UV. It was alright, pretty damn brutal at points but not completely out for blood and I liked Romero's detailing. I'll need to play it again on Switch, although I'm not sure how well that will translate in handheld mode. Might want to bump it down to HMP or even HNTR lol.

I've been blasting through the DBP wads on HMP; did the most recent two (D&D and Martian Nazis) and then went back to try them all from the beginning. Absolute gems. And I'm really digging the 8-9 map length, too; just enough to make me want more.

Playing HR2 for the DWMC right now. Once I finish it soon, there's a whole huge list of other WADs I want to play or replay. At the top is probably Doom 2 the Way id Did. There's also some DBPs that have grabbed my eye, that I'll see about nominating for the DWMC next month to play them then. Also been wanting to replay Going Down, Ancient Aliens, Eviternity, and Struggle.

A map called Guardian. There are at least four with this title from the mid-late 1990s, three of which are in the Idgames database. This one's the most interesting: it's very tough indeed, and I gave up without finishing it a couple of years ago, as there wasn't quite enough ammo. This time round I managed to find a couple of secrets, which yielded an additional 200 plasma cells and an invuln sphere, and those proved to be a game changer. There's a section towards the end involving a lift and a Cyberdemon which had me cursing the sadism of the mapper......

I just recently got back into playing Doom and started with TNT's Evilution as a warmup kind of deal. I have so many new releases to play, so naturally when I get into Doom again, I play all the classics I've played multiple times. I decided to play something new and started on Eviternity. I'm only on MAP03, but wow does it make me feel inept as a mapper.

Started playing through the original Scythe only recently, I've been really enjoying it's collection of small, quick maps, really opened my eyes to what can be done with a small amount of enemies & compact levels if you're smart with which enemies you use.

I'm revisiting Back To Saturn X Episode 2. I had a lot of fun playing it in good old-fashioned Continuous mode (the pacing across maps was really smooth), and now I'm seeing how the maps play on Pistol Starts. MAP03 is an early highlight, since its opening battle keeps goading you to punch through the monsters and dive even deeper into the level in order to complete your arsenal.

Lately ive gained interest in Doom II on Xbox. Tried to switch it up a bit because I've played the PC versions so much lately due to this wonderful world right now lol.Lately ive gained interest in Doom II on Xbox.

i'm working through the official content in my own time just to reset. i decided before i start this playthrough to do a fun pk3 (just for my own personal use) just for the master levels as one file to play through without changing maps. and it became a massive thing (see spoiler if you're curious)    

Spoiler

 

it brings in the rejected maps and the maps from the series they're apart of. and then it separates them into episodes (one episode for each of the 3 series, then one episode for the master levels i couldn't group and then one episode just for all the maps whose titles start with "the") i used map info, picked their music and gave them their own map numbers so it doesn't interfere with doom 2 and no rest for the living. i thought i was done... and then i was like "wait, i pulled e4m7 into this pk3. i don't wanna repeat maps"

 

so i made a separate PK3 for doom 1 (because i don't know if you can tell gzdoom to ignore a lump depending on what wad you load. and i then decided since i made a pk3 for doom 1 with just one map in it i'd do other stuff too. i added in e1m4b and e1m8b, after that i shoved in the episode 4 intermission screen, and i decided i wanted the other console exclusive maps in there also. so, i added in sewers (it's terrible but i'm a completionist so i needed it) and i added in the lost episode because it has 7 console exclusive levels and 2 levels from the alphas.

 

following that I realized "hey, there are 2 more console exclusive levels." i opted not to add in club doom because so much coloured lighting, but i added in hell gate as map 34. there's no way to get to map 34, but i remembered that in Wolfenstein's first boss level there was a secret that was removed when it was moved into doom so i put that secret back and put the secret exit in there. 

 

it took me 4 days, there were too many hiccups. i'm pissed off that it took me that long. but i'm excited to finally play this. (and no, i won't send it to you. too much piracy in doing that.)

 

i finished up e4 and i'm about to move on to the lost episode and then doom 2.

I finally finished any map in BTSX's shareware version, albeit without 100% :) The end was very epic and I suspected more maps but the writing at the bottom of the ocean said "To be continued"

 

Before I finished this I also finished the following earlier:

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Vanilla Doom 2 on UV

Ultimate Doom's first three episodes with Beautiful Doom on HMP

Vanilla "Thy Flesh Consumed" on ITYTD

 

I guess it's time to play with Plutonia or zPack

Two maps left on Survive in Hell then onto Community Chest 3.  In the past, I haven't been the biggest fan of community driven projects but right now they're giving me some much needed variety.
