Need help identifying some old maps

Recommended Posts

E1M7 is TMP.WAD, a winner of a 1994 PC Zone WAD competition. Perhaps the other two Doom 1 levels come from that competition as well?

The others are a mistery to me.

Thanks. There's another mystery: How can this be a winner of some contest and the author is unknown...?

It's unlikely that the others are from the same source. I extracted these levels from some old compilation WADs - the rest of the maps in there came with text files but these 5 were missing them. Seeing that tmp.wad was only uploaded to /idgames in 2011 the most likely reason is that it originally never had a text file. Maybe the same was true for the others as well.

Never seen before, sorry can't help.

But I have a question: would it be possible to create a program that take as input a doom level and compare it with all levels in archives, by shape or similar, and then give as output if there are "similar" levels already present?

Apparently the contest winner was announced in the December 1994 issue of PC Zone. I guess it won't be easy to locate it now.
This is the best I could find: http://web.archive.org/web/20090722121700/http://www.robinnixon.com/pczone/

Wanna pay 10 euro for a piece of Doom history? If someone has spare money, it's on eBay right now:
