WAD Playthrough Requests

Recommended Posts

Hello! I recently saw someone post a thread offering to do playthroughs of wads and was not satisfied with the quality of the videos and his demands for the wads seemed a bit unreasonable so I am going to take my own crack at it.

I will play any wads sent to me that can be beaten or are not troll wads and will do a few playthroughs for each.

My time between videos depends on the map size how many maps there are an the difficulty. My time between videos will be anything from 1 day to 1-3 weeks depending on how many wads I have going at a time.

My idea of troll wads is as follows:
Any terry traps
Intentionally bad maps (eg. homs, basic textures, terrible design in general, ugly room) if there are more than 3 of these iI will not play it and classify it as a troll
(if you feel I am misjudging it feel free to pm I am very open to discussion about it :) )
Maps with stupidly hard difficulty like chillax or sunder (I might do a few maps if they are like sunder in difficulty but I won't do 32 or something like chillax with 47)
Joke Maps with gimmicks (like the 39 years to beat wad where you just sit infront of pillars)

I will be playing all maps on ultra violence or it's equivalent if you have custom difficulty.

I will be using gzdoom as it is the only sourceport I feel can truly show off the architecture without geometry warp. If your map does not work with gzdoom (not sure why it wouldn't) I will use glboom+

Please let me know if i should use jump and/or crouch for your map if it's not specified i will assume no.

I will also be using mouselook so I can show off all of the architecture.

I will do multiple playthroughs of each map (my first run going through slowly and looking at everything my second run a speedy 100% 100% 100% run)

My videos will have commentary in a high quality (I have a blue snowball mic and I'll use audacity to cut out background noise). I am also turning 14 in a few months so if you do not like my voice I am sorry there is nothing I can do.

My videos will be highly edited after my first run to show off cool things I missed on my first run.

All videos will be recorded in 1080p 60fps.

If you want credits in the description please specify them here, thanks!

Here is a link to my youtube channel where i will be posting my playthroughs

hey man, i love the idea, and i like how you pointed out that the other people offering help have been a bit unreasonable with their standards.

depending on when i get this next map done, i will shoot you a sample of it. its far from done as a whole, but 4 maps to play through that are all about 30 minutes long could be pretty cool to se ehow someone else plays.


so my comment is a bump. boom.

A winter themed level I created awhile back. It is zdoom in Hexen format, and it contains custom monsters, sounds, textures, etc. You will need to play it with the included resource wads M27 and T20:
Frosty's Revenge

WIP resource wads (contains custom stuff I've made, as well as a little bit of stuff from realm667 and other places, each credited with the Decorate info files:
M27 (monsters, items, etc.)
T20 (textures)

If you want a more regular Doom experience, here is Unbeaten Path, an entry I made for the Final Doom the Way Id Did project.

Enjoy :)

I seem to be missing alot of textures even though I am running the wad with both resources you sent me. Should I be launching it another way besides zdl?
I also tried it with zdoom aswell

Whoops, I forgot to include this extra texture compilation: Realm667 A small compilation of textures from Realm667 and perhaps a few other places (I don't remember). Credits for all of the textures should be in the Decorate files. I haven't used this one in a long time.

Wait, there's still people who think that the first 11 maps of Sunder, aside from 06, are hard?

map05 is really badly designed and you should've said first 12 maps as 12 is very easy

...Map 12 is arguably the second hardest in the wad, unless you're playing with carry-overs (the wad is designed for pistol starts).

That start is brutal, and the "donut" is no breeze, either.

Well, if I can do a special request...

See, I've made this wad: https://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/74283-shrooms-wad-babys-first-wad-preview-released/

It's not long, you can speedrun through it in 15 minutes or so.
Thing is, it's made to be played on Nightmare on a second playthrough, but hell if I can find someone here who's willing to do that and tell me how it was. If you're willing to give it a try, I'd be grateful. You even get the true ending when you do that. Think you're up to it?

Spoiler

Protip: Save the BFG for arch-viles.

It's not a troll wad, it's not a joke wad, but it's certainly a departure from usual.
I know it kinda sucks, specially MAP01 as it was literally my first map in 10 years or so. So please, reserve your judgement for the second and third maps.

You do whatever you want, if you want to record both then go for it, if you just want to record the nightmare one that's fine too.

Since you mentioned cool things you see, there's a few easter eggs, by the way. A "special" ledge in MAP03 that has a secret message if you get there and a 1/66 chance upon map start of spawning a BFG, while MAP04 has a unmarked secret that you absolutely won't miss in the Nightmare run and a top secret message that honestly, I never expected anyone to find without me telling them it exists.

say what you will but I don't find bfg spam that hard

So, you're playing a wad designed for pistol-starts with carryovers.

I know this because you don't have a BFG in Sunder map 12 for the first half of the map, unless you do a tricky Vile jump to skip most of the level.

I did the vile jump and how is it tricky?

Happily :) I'll do that for the day after tomorrow's video

Here's a just-finished version of my maps wad: empyrion_v29.wad and empyrion_v29_bfg.wad. The difference is the _bfg version has the bfg available in coop as well as single-player, while the other version has the bfg available only in single-player, with other goodies replacing it in coop.

If you only want to play one map, I choose EMP09, Descent.
Source Port: (G)ZDoom, Zandronum, or ZDaemon (but it won't look as good).
IWAD: Doom 2

Jumping and crouching are not required, but they also will not break the maps. There are no scripts, so if you want to use a mod with custom weapons and/or monsters, feel free, but that's totally optional. Skill levels are supported, and the extra monsters in coop basically double the number of skill levels. You could, if you like, use Zandronum's multiplayer emulation to face more monsters, but with respawning.

sorry for not posting videos I was busy changing my recording studio up and now that I've recorded some video google plus banned me until april 3rd because my friends got access to my google plus account and posted porn which I tried to take down and as I was taking them down i got banned for 3 weeks and now they want to ban me for longer as there was stuff I didn't take all of it down
So yeah the system has kind of fucked me over despite my multiple appeals and common sense about taking them down
Sorry for notifying you sooner I might get another friends channel to upload my videos

It would've been fine if you just said that you were not feeling like recording doom lately xD

(jokes)

That kinda sucks. You should probably chose your friends better but then again, it's the standard "I get away from my comp but leave facebook logged in accidently and when I come back, I'm suddenly gay" kind of thing isn't it?
