Lost and forgotten wads.

Recommended Posts

Hi gang. So I was just thinking about this wad. You may have heard of it.

..... Don's Challenge .....

You know the one I mean.
The one for EDGE with the modified E1 maps and non-linear level progression through means of an exit elevator.
All those cool weapons and neat effects, it was great.

But do you remember the sequel that was released before the EDGE version?
The one designed for early versions of ZDoom?
You could play as 2 characters, it had 11 maps (or so) and new weapons and probably more.

In all fairness, I don't remember much else.
I vaguely remember an ending that was set in Don's house and that's about it.
I was about 11 years old when I played it after all.

Well from the looks of it - it's now near impossible to play these wads again.
There's info about the Don's Challenge trilogy listed here on the Immoral Conduct site (http://www.doomworld.com/immoralconduct/dc3.htm)
including details of the once-released DC3 demo which I never got a chance to play...
But that's it. No working links.

Cory Whittle did intend on remaking all the DC wads, but he seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth completely.

Though it'd be cool if someone did actually have the wads - what I'm more interested in is that there are probably more "lost" wads or projects out there.
Wads that had a limited release other than idgames... And then suddenly ended up lost in the mists of internet time.

So what I'm asking is - what wads do you remember that you simply cannot find anymore?

There is something like a "damned" Cthulhu level that sometimes appears here in the forum and then disappears.

It is inspired by "The picture in the house" by H.P. Lovecraft.

It is often exchange for "Beyond Kadath" level but it is not that one.

Not that I personally remember them, of course, but all of the (unanswered) ones in this huge and still-active thread.


Yo yeah, fair enough, though I do think this thread contextually speaking is more about "what memories do you have of that wad you played when you were 9 years old", where other people can say "oh haha yeah i remember that no way i wonder what happened to it"

rather than "help me find this wad pls, thank u for finding this wad".
Saying that the thread is still useful and to be honest I didn't actually notice it before I posted this thread - so apologies for that.

Maybe this thread can include wads that are still downloadable but everyone has completely forgotten about but were once a big thing back in the year 2000 or whatever? Like the sequel to Twilight Warrior TC - Covert Ops (for EDGE)

Yes, you can still download it here! http://www.doomworld.com/icarusweb/w_covert.html

Incredible.

EDIT: also, remember that Mario "TC" that replaced all the flats, textures and enemies with Mario characters? That was mindblowing back when I started playing Doom. Mindblowing.

I remember being ultra hyped for DRE which turned out to be a disappointing bloated turd. Oddly enough the dude who made it was the same dude who basically started me out on mapping though, so that was cool.

Immoral Conduct was really fun as well, that was a go-to wad for skulltag DM around 05-06.

Fragport was a lot more commonly seen in online servers back then as well. It doesn't look that impressive these days but for some reason when I was younger I found the maps to be particularly immersive.

(I'm on the mobile right now so I can't be assed to post links, all those wads are easy to find though)
