The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I am looking for a small wad which essentially just removes the weapon switch frames.

Similar to how Quake removed the weapon raise and lower frames. I know it's included in several notable megawads but I'm just looking for a small wad which only removes these frames.

 

Does anyone know if anything like this exists out there? I'm looking specifically for something that could run in crispy/chocolate doom.

Hi, does anyone happen to have any of the Concerned WAD early versions saved (i.e., beta versions and stuff)? For context, there are a couple Concerned demos by Nevanos that do not play back with the final version of the WAD and don't play back with any of the versions on WAD archive either (other than one of the demos sort of playing back with one of them, but bizarrely missing a kill at the end). If anyone has anything earlier than the WADs available on WAD archive and elsewhere, that would be neat. :)

 

Edit: based on Nev's demos, this wad might be named concerned.wad instead of concern.wad.

Hello. I am looking for a Doom2 wad called Boxing. It’s a single player wad of a house by an unknown author. The map was featured in Houses14.wad. Do you know where I can find it as a standalone level ? I’ve been after it for ages. But, It’s *not* the one on the idgames archive under Doom2/levels/a-c where that one is a 3 level wad with a house for the first level.

Hi! This one is an extreme longshot, but I thought I'd try anyways.

 

In the linked readme, the author makes mention of a WAD called 'lostcity.wad' by Rob Fowler.

 

https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/j-l/lostcit

 

This author doesn't appear to be on /idgames or any other archive I've checked...

 

Any help will be highly appreciated! :)

Try this

LOSTCITY.ZIP

 

The author is Bob Fowler

That's got to be it! Wow, thanks a lot - and so quickly too! :D

 

I tried searching variations on Fowler's name on /idgames, but I truly don't think he's on there.

 

Thanks again!

You're welcome! Enjoy! ( I found the wad in a Amiga Format Shareware CD :) )

Hi. Do you know where I can find Dm2falls.wad as a stand-alone level for Doom2 by Eric The Great ? It was featured in Dm2levs.wad. I’ve been after it since late 1995 !

 

Also I’m looking for Doom3.wad by Michael Daniels. Does anyone know where I can find it ? Hope you can help.

Hi, I'm looking for 'akira1.wad' by Orin Flaharty. It was mentioned in: 'Deathmatc [sic] Ratings', an old excel document detailing 'good' deathmatch WADs from 1994-1996...

 

I'm also looking for bob12.wad, bob13.wad, and bob14.wad by Gigabob. Circa 1994-1996, as well.

 

Any help will be appreciated. I'm sure I'll find more to ask about, as I progress through this spreadsheet.

Awesome!

 

I didn't know what his real name was, only his username, so that makes sense why I couldn't find it...

 

Thanks, I appreciate it!

 

Edit: Didn't see @thestarrover's post! Thanks as well! :D

Are there any other wads you need tracking down ? Let me know...

I'm looking for the v1 version of this WAD: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom/deathmatch/a-c/buttv2

 

Also, all of these:

csdm_57b.wad by unknown

dascott3.wad by Darryl Scott (I think)

dawgalot.wad by William Engdahl

deathmch.wad by unknown

dm_xyno.wad by Ludo Texier

Thanks for the offer to help, I'm sure I'll encounter more as I move down the list more...

You're really hooking me up quite nicely!

 

I'll get back to you when I find some more questionable WADs I need.

 

This is really helpful, especially the v1 version of butt.wad - I've been looking for that one for a little bit...

 

Thanks!!

Hi people, somebody have a copy from eu4b.wad? Wad-archives announce it wrongly as an Iwad, and no download link is provided

https://www.wad-archive.com/wad/101fafcf8419845320d89752bc7198dfe2ff6f35

Thx!

You might want to ask the user 'WadArchive' they might *possibly* be able to fix that link for you; I don't know!

 

I too, am now interested in this WAD.

I am wondering if you can help me. 
Jeffrey Steelman made a level for Heretic called Fortress.wad. In the text file he refers to it as ‘a remake of an old favourite’. Which Doom level does it originate from ? 
Hope you can find a solution. @Doomlover77

@thestarrover Also the text file for Resvdogs.wad by Jeffrey Steelman has the same reference. Maybe he liked converting old Doom wads !

Resvdogs - Scanyon.wad converted from Doom

Drome - Coloseum.wad converted from Doom

Fortress - ?.wad converted from Doom
