So far, yes. Again I apologise for the oversight on my part re: compatibility setting.


Apology not necessary. I'm just clarifying so I know what needs to be done.

I'm also grateful you're looking at the levels :)

Not a problem. I've resolved to beat them all in UV from a pistol start. MAP31 is beating my ass, repeatedly. Got to the Archviles, and I'm kinda not doing so well at that point.

I will beat them all though. ;)

The non-trad compilation is coming, by the by, though it will likely take longer as a lot more of the maps need difficulty settings.

played trought all the traditional mapset, it's a ok megawad with a lots of unconventional design in it... when i get back home i'll post the bugs i found (not so many but i found some un-uppenged textures here and there and a missing line in map27)

I am still having difficulties with MAP31. It all looks totally possible, just fiendishly put together. I think maybe this is the best map so far.

As an aside, I'm playing this with Jimmy's Plutonia Midi project WAD and it's such an amazing fit.

7 maps still to do in the Non-Trad wad, and then it will be ready for testing.

Draft text file. Let me know if you have any suggestions for changes.

===========================================================================
Primary purpose         : Single Player
===========================================================================
Title                   : 100 Lines
Filename                : 100lineT.wad, 100lineN.wad
Author                  : Various, see below
Email Address           : crowroadaw@yahoo.com.au
                          (that'll get you Capellan/Adam Windsor - use
                          Doomworld PMs to contact individual map authors)

Description             : The challenge was to put together the best possible
                          level that meets all 5 of the following criteria:
                           1. is Boom-compatible; and
                           2. uses only vanilla textures; and
                           3. is fun to play; and
                           4. looks OK; and
                           5. is constructed with 100 linedefs or less.

                          To put this last criteria in context, e1m1 has 486
                          linedefs.
                          
                          Over 70 maps were submitted, and 64 were OK'd for
                          release to idgames.  These have been split into two
                          wads:
                          
                          100lineT: is levels that are more or less 
                          'traditional' in their map design.
                          100lineN: is levels that use an unusual gimmick, or
                          take a slaughtermap approach.
                          
                          All maps were designed with pistol start in mind.
                          The order of maps in the wads was determined by the
                          visual style of the levels; difficulty curve was not
                          a factor.  Some later maps will be easier than
                          earlier ones.

Also is MAP05 (I think. Archvile and blue key, if this rings any bells) supposed to be so short?


Yes! I know that it wasn't much, I just made an experiment. I think the map was playable, though, isn't it?

In 100lineT, the blue key in map18 is stuck in mid-air and can't be picked up. Btw, I played through the wad while keeping my weapons and thought it was fun. :)

For the txt file, did you want to give credit to Sandy Petersen for the doom2 map01 remake in 100lineN?

Fixed the blue key. Added a note that your map had inspiration from ID.

In 100lineT map02 works correctly in prboom-plus, but in the old prboom crashes, in vanilla and DOOM95 strong artifacts, in GZDoom visible distortion Z-fighting.

I had made this mistake. It has BOOM specials, so PRBoom+ is probably the way to go here, just make sure the compatibility is set to BOOM and not Vanilla.

I'll tell you what I can do: I'll whip up some DeHackEd patches for the 2 wads when I get the chance. If you could list the map names I'll be able to get started. Sorry again for not being able to compile the whole thing, but I'm just too preoccupied nowdays. I couldn't keep track of the maps either: there's like 20 "100lines.wad" files in my Downloads folder. :P

I'll try to work up the enthusiasm to troll through the thread for level names. That's the only record for a lot of them.

Well , I have names for my maps. (Logo and minimum fear(based on the opening of e4m9))

I'm still slogging through 100lineT. I couldn't beat MAP31 in the end, I just went to MAP16 and have been playing through since then. There's a slaughterish one in green marble (MAP23) that's seven tons of fun, love it.

Is it so bizarre that I think this is generally a pretty good level set?

EDIT
Done, dusted. Pistol starts on all non-secret levels apart from MAP18, which has a floating blue key (as noted above). Didn't like how cramped the beginning of MAP30 is, but there's a trick to it and it's certainly beatable.

Not bad, will play again (either final release or when the Megawad club does).

I've fixed the floating blue key in map18. Just that and the extra single player start in map08 as issues so far, it seems. Well, except for port issues.

Seems like the text file should basically say "Use PRBoom+ or GLBoom+, compat 9, to play"?

Ribbiks said:

more concise term for that would just be 'boom-compatible'


... except it has glitches in prboom-without-the-plus, so really it's not.

(Darn that traversd and his fancy schmancy prboom+ engine trickery! :) )

It okay if I test on a lower setting than UV for this one (thinking on HNTR)? I'm pretty much a slaughtermap virgin, and I gather a few of those feature...

Share this post


Link to post

You can test it however you like :) HNTR may still be very nasty for some maps (like Time of Death's), but it will be very easy for others.

Not sure how, but one of the arachnatrons on MAP07 Non-Trad got stuck and never teleported, making the map unwinnable without noclip.

Demonologist's 3rd – Throne

It's Black Throne (in case someone cares - it's inspired by and named after this song).

Capellan said:

I'd suggest naming it Hell's Triangulation or something like that as a reference to the original since the author himself doesn't seem to care. Still there are better suggestions maybe...

Pythagorean Hell?

My names are good. Thanks for adding all the starts Capellan.
