The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

Recommended Posts

I know this is a massive long shot, but I stumbled across a supposed series of early deathmatch WADs by an author known as Jason Silvio a.k.a. 'The Eternal One'. The WADS in question are the 'NETxx.wad' series. The only two levels preserved on /idgames are NET09, (NET09 is just NET10 without music, and a few other minor changes) and NET10. I searched him via author search on /idgames, and found 'cybofun2.wad' and a result called 'Equinox.wad' in which 'The Eternal One' has a music credit. I am unsure if this is the same 'The Eternal One' from the NETxx.wad series... Anyway, here's the main 'NET10.wad' page...

 

https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/deathmatch/m-o/net10

 

The author claims in the readme that there are ten levels in this series. I cannot find them anywhere, or even mentioned in any known documents from the time. I even consulted 'Deatmatc [sic] Ratings' a 1996 spreadsheet of over 800 deathmatch levels from 94'-96'  - it makes no mention of this series either. I really have been wracking my brain trying to find these. I'm convinced they're not that great, as NET09/10 are both quite mediocre.

 

WADarchive doesn't list any others in the series either. I'm really at a loss!

 

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Seems odd for a whole 8 levels to just disappear, but I suppose time can do that... :P

 

Edit: Seeing as these maps were made in Spring '95, and only uploaded to the archive in '05, I don't have much hope for finding these...

Base : NET1.WAD through NET9.WAD, all created by myself.

This combined with the fact that NET9 is just an earlier version of NET10 seem to imply that NET1-8 are also probably just earlier versions of the map, possibly never released publicly, despite the author calling it a series. Those comments in the square brackets on idgames were presumably added by the uploader, they're not there in the original text file: https://www.wad-archive.com/wad/NET10-WAD

That seems like a likely possibility! I just noticed this in the /idgames upload under the 'Build Time': "under 12 hours. (Including resetting to test each new addition :)...)".

 

I imagine this short creation time may refer to all 10 variations of the map - the words "each new addition" really points to this being 10 versions of the same map, as opposed to 10 different maps...

 

Can't believe I didn't catch that before posting! :) Thanks for your help!!

Hi, I'm looking for a wad that had a cutscene where Doomguy can be seen walking down a wide bridge in a city that was in flames

 

After that you enter a tech base with tons of computers textures and coffee mugs laying around with scientist corpses.
