[Released] PSX Doom: The Lost Levels

Recommended Posts

It's been a long time coming, but just a day over three years after the official announcement of the project, we can finally call this project done.

PSX Doom: The Lost Levels is an add-on for the PlayStation Doom TC. When the PlayStation ports of Doom, Doom II, the Master Levels and Final Doom were made, many maps had to be cut out to comply with the limitations of the console itself.
This begs the question, with the visual/atmospheric changes that PSX Doom brought us, what would those lost levels have been like if they'd made it on to the port?

This project is the answer to that question. With all the analysis of the PSX limitations - and my god there were a lot of them - we like to think the authenticity in our conversions is more or less optimal.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the project, and special thanks to those whom without this couldn't have been possible, Dragonsbrethren, DeXiaZ, Salahmander2, and too many others to name off the top of my head.

Note that you need the base TC first to play this.

Before registering here, I'd been lurking long enough to see the very start of this project unfold. It's been three years since then, but it all still feels as if it were moments away, despite the haziness of the memory. I can only congratulate everyone involved for putting their blood, sweat, and etc into making this thing become a reality, and to be as accurate to the original's limitations as possible.

You're all pretty great.

I can not express my gratitude towards those who made this through text.

Seriously, thanks to the team responsible and here is to the hope that one day a future PSX PWAD being made (that I will actually take part in).

I mean why not, you all clearly have the skill to pull it off and make it look like Williams actually made it.

First of all, congratulations for finishing a project of this size.
I will slowly work myself throught this little surprise here.

Secondly, i dont know why, but it seems that gzdoom cant find the music-files if you use the pack provided by you.
Maybe I'm actually dumb and doing something wrong, but not sure.
I used the drag&drop method to execute all the stuff.

Just wanted to inform you about that.

No, for music addon you should use .bat file commands (for old versions of PSX TC) or PSX Doom Manager exe file (you can find it in last version of PSX TC).

so, lost04 a caco seems to be stuck:


also it seems i cant find any progression, as the keys wont open the bars:

Where is caco stuck? I don't recognize this place.

About bars - no, you'll never open them by keys. You should find the way to open door to teleport near those bars (look at right of your screen). You can find the switch near the yellow key (just walk through floor line).

Anyway, you needn't get through those bars if you're not planning to find secret_exit

Great to see it finally done. :)

Well I guess I can say that this is the first game project that I have ever contributed to. :P

So...LOST04, approaching the yellow platform doesn't open that marble door on the left. In fact sector tag 5 (the door itself) has no linedef at all to trigger it.
Don't tell me this has been broken all this time and no one noticed it.


EDIT: OK so I see the map is still completable, but only by means of a secret area...

It's not really good news. I didn't noticed this bug.

Yesterday I had a Lost Levels marathon, truly outstanding work guys. These levels really feel like they could have been part of the PS1 version of Doom. The design, the moody lighting and moody music really all mesh together into an experience.

I know I haven't posted here much since PC_CP2. But gotta say PSX Doom The Lost Levels was simply great. Great effort guys! (including me :D)

I tell you .... Express Elevator to Hell was a challenge because of that elevator at the start and it needed to be split into 2 sections to avoid surpassing the 256 heights. I know I probably had two of the toughest maps to convert, Administration Center and Express Elevator to Hell.

That sewers map was brilliant in PSX form! I remember playing it many years ago in those shareware CD's with all the 1994 wads.

Why thank you! T'was a swine to get looking authentic, mainly because the original was such an ugly, chaotically messy POS!

Quick, Dexiaz, convert all of Perdition's Gate, Hell To Pay and Lost Episodes and see if you can do it faster than the remaining levels :p
