The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

Recommended Posts

Grateful for any help, this wad was awesome.

The wad starts atop a ravine and makes its way around it in a horseshoe, with plenty of mancubus and arch-vile battles along the way. Had a kind of abandoned jungle base feel to it.

At the end of the wad, you end up at the bottom of the ravine near a red-key exit. To gain the red key you fight your way up the narrow-ish ravine with water texture on the floor and jungle / vines surrounding on the walls. Upon getting the red key at the top, you descend back down the ravine again to get to the exit, except tonnes of barons, revenants, lost souls and cacos spawn in.

I don't know if somebody has made this and released it for public, but is there a Sega Saturn port status bar mod? I'm not a big fan of the PSX port status bar, what with the terribly scaled face sprites...

 

It's in my Rabid's Crap mods...requested it from somebody who extracted it on the ZDoom forums.  Rabid's Crap 8 is the most advanced so far. https://www.moddb.com/mods/rabids-crap-v20.  If you want the least changes possible, go with version 1, which has its own link: https://www.moddb.com/mods/rabids-crap/.
 

Or you could just extract what you want and make your own file.

Thanks!  I've always thought that was the one advantage Saturn had--it had the best status bar.  Of course, I was obsessed with finding something good about all of them, because my best friend had a PC in the 90s and I didn't.  For 3DO it was the music.

Rabid's Crap starts mashing in other things as well, but the early ones pack in lots of console stuff.

I remember seeing this more recent megawad that started in a city, and people were really surprised it was vanilla for some reason. It had neat shapes... that's all I remember but I really want to find this WAD.

I want to give an update on this specific WAD, as I have found it. And, it turns out, it was not a Megawad, but a single map. I have no idea where I got the impression that it was a megawad. Anyhow, it's Altitude.wad by Tourniquet. I was playing his new map today for a minute or so before thinking "man, this feels just like that WAD I was looking for!" Lo and behold, I look into his catalog of maps, and find Altitude, which is exactly the wad I was looking for. Great map btw (haven't finished it yet).

Throwing this one out there yet again to see if anybody can identify it.

I downloaded it in the early 2000s, think it might have been made in the late 90s.  Not sure.  Actually, I'm not sure about much!  So please bear with me.  I think it was a later level (like 09+) in a megawad.  You're coming out of a cavern and you go up some really wide steps that have imps on them.  Then you come to a giant outdoor area where they're fireballing you from, like, so far away that they're specks.  Parked at the far end of this outdoor area is a big structure with a custom white marble texture.  Up some steps at the side of the structure is a door that multiple Arch-Viles come out of.

 

What wad is this??

There's a wad I'm looking for, it was a sort of free roam aspect. I remember in the beginning you started in a room of teleporters that took you to the different areas. It used custom textures, and I remember it had a lot of castle themed moments in it. I don't know if this is too vague or not, but I'm curious if anybody else knows it. I think it was a moderately successful map, it was nonlinear.

That actually could be one of my older levels. Not a castle, but the rest fits :) http://windward.dk/TDR/?page_id=537

What about one where you play as Caleb and you have all of Blood's ORIGINAL weapons (No revolver or stuff like that, just the everyday OG Blood 1 weapons)

 

You'll want Samsara EX(I think?) which is a continuation of the Samsara project. Caleb wasn't added in initially as it was intended to be a multiplayer mod and the creator wanted variety in player tupes, but others eventually took over and released their own expanded version with more characters later on. It's not 100% like playing Blood's weapons in Blood as some things are slightly off in the Doom engine, but it's about 95%.

This sounds like Erik Alm's EUROPA 2. The first was castle-themed but used all stock textures. EAEURO02 uses the Gothic texture pack and starts with something like six different teleporter destinations. EDIT: if this is a BDL con to see whether I'd played something that would have been next, logically, on my itinerary then i am disappointed

Looking for a WAD with only small maps. It was the outcome of some challenge of sorts. I cannot remember clearly. The maps where small and hilarious compact while being well made, gameplay and design-wise. Each map was made by another person, as far as i can remember. Anyway, if you have a clue let me know.

Im trying to make levels for Doom 2 on Doom builder 2 and I can't seem to find the wad file for Doom 2. I got the game off of steam and I put in the only wad file I see for it, but whenever I go to test the level. Nothing happens.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Doom 2\base\DOOM2.WAD

First of all, I think you should switch to a newer version of Doom Builder. I've personally switched to Ultimate Doom Builder.

 

Anyway, back on topic. This video explains the Doom editing basics. If I remember correctly, he talks about the location of the iwad files within the first 10 mins or so. He covers a lot of important things in this video in a very understandable and userfriendly way. Highly recommendable if you're new to all of this :)

There was this map pack with custom monsters that were mostly headless, and also had enemies which were the heads attached to robotic spider legs. I can't remember the name. Hopefully someone knows what I am talking about

Kopflos maybe ?

Are there any WADs which provide team deathmatches with some specific objectives and friendly/non-friendly NPC involved? Like in DOTA: there are 2 teams, both have NPC hordes fighting each other and real players who influence the outcome. I'm not a fan of this game, but it's the clearest example I can think of.

A wad where you start in a crashed spaceship and its made up of incredibly detailed linedefs. The whole wad is extremely detailed like this. I remember one level youre in a cave with diggers. I'm not sure but I think its a BOOM compatible wad, no slopes or anything

This is almost certainly Phobos: Anomaly Reborn
