shack.png

Hey people, just wanted to announce a new cluster of servers for Zandronum, ZDaemon and Odamex hosted at Doomshack.org!
These are maintained by myself & mrcrispy.


You can upload WADs, DEHs, ZIPs and PK3s HERE!

Please join us in the official Doomshack chat at irc.quakenet.org #dmstuff.

What's in the pipeline:

  • A forum!
  • Autmated server hosting with a web interface
  • A Chocolate Doom server

 

Stay tuned for updates. Happy fragging!

Lol @ the link to DoomBuilder2's website. The subtle, conspiracy-theory-worthy encouragement for newcomers to make OS wads at play here is a highlight of the site :)

On a more serious note, great job with Doomshack.org so far, man! I look forward to the planned real-time server/player display; that's pretty cool.

The Doomshack servers are very reliable for me to play on, as well. So great job to you and Crispix on getting them up for us to get some good frags on.

Hey people, just wanted to post a link to our wad hosting service!

http://www.doomshack.org/upload.php

If you ever need a place to host your complete wad (or WIP) go ahead and use this rather than some pain in the ass like Mediafire :)

Is there a size limit? An uploads-per-day limit?

It should still work Memfis, might have just been a hiccup. The max file size is 500mb I think but I'll double check after work, can't remember what we ended up setting it to

Is there a list on the site that describes what the downloads are?

Looks like the site security protocols are acting up.. Will make sure to address that once home! MrCrispy has been updating a few things so this is probably a side effect.

@spocks_beard, there will be soon, but not quite yet.

Alright, site/uploader should be working again. I've double checked, the size limit is 128mb and the upload cancels if it hasn't completed within 10 minutes. These are the only restrictions for wad/mod uploads, that aside anything goes.

If more people did this I could take "occasionally" off my title again

If anything else acts up, please let me know!

Would it be possible to display the number of downloads for each file? I'm often curious to know that info. :)

Sadly, it looks like the download counter will be insanely hard to implement. My apologies Memfis, I also really wanted this feature..

On the bright side, hundreds of text files have been added to the database so you can read some info about each file before downloading: http://www.doomshack.org/wadlist.php

Still a work in progress, but improving daily :)

Hey peoples, more updates! Cleaned up the wadlist, made the front page look a little more neat, added a link to over 800 MIDI files and made shareware doom playable on the page index. Mr. Crispy has also improved the uploader and has things generally running smoother than ever. We also have a wide array of new servers on ZDaemon and Zandronum!

 

What's in the pipeline:

  • A forum!
  • Automated server hosting with a web interface
  • A Chocolate Doom server

Stay tuned and happy fragging!

I just uploaded a few files to the site - fixed co-op versions of Doom Core, Eternally Yours and Absolute Dishonor (DCVfix, EYfix and ADfix respectively) so hopefully we can see those get some circulation. Really been enjoying the Doomshack servers lately and appreciate the work on the website.

By the way I was wondering, where exactly does powergun.wad originate from? I quite liked playing some WADs like Alien Vendetta and JPCP with them, and I'd like to know who created it or any other info about it.

Got permission to share a fixed-up version of Interception and uploaded it to Doomshack recently. It has the regular intercep.wad name but it's got the broken exits of MAP19 and MAP29 fixed as well as a number of bugs/issues addressed so check it out.

Glad you posted this, reminds me it's time to update the cluster soon! Time for a few fresh servers once I get home tonite.

 

Powergun is a little mod I threw together :)

Hey, what's up with the upload form? I choose a 3 MB file and it gives me "413 Request Entity Too Large".

Ah crap. Thanks for letting us know Memfis, will get that fixed soon.

I've just uploaded my Brutal Doom v20c unofficial patch and Romero's Heresy II (both released @moddb). I recommend RHII since IMO it's a lot of fun in multiplayer (it's compatible  with Zandro) and brings classic Doom Gameplay to Heretic. Have fun!

@DoomkidDid you finally tried it BTW?

Is that all? I'd be glad to fix that, but I don't want to quickly upload a new version in case I happen to spot anything else.

 

Also I need to get around making a fix for Reverie to make it more coop friendly.
