Wad Showcase - What's Your Wad Resume?

Can I assume then that you don't have a copy and it's not on /idgames?

 

This is precisely it. I can remember liking the two maps (even if they might be pretty-cramped, as was my mapping style back then) and lost them to time/old computers, and given the relative lack of Heretic stuff in /idgames thought they may be a nice, if dated, addition.

This is already way more than I expected, many thanks in advance even if searching is ultimately fruitless. :)

The whole not-so-big listing of ETTiNGRiNDER releases (including releases for other games) can be seen here: http://ettingrinder.youfailit.net/myprojects.html

The only things it doesn't count are some of my older resource-type junk that may still be available on Realm667 and/or my ZDoom forum resource thread, and a handful of files I put out over a decade ago under a different handle, but those are another story.

I'd like to see a feature on the Downloads section where you can easily sort through maps by a single author.  It might require some curating, but it'd be a nice way to discover the discography (as it were).

 

Personally I've had three releases.

 

  • My first map, Foursite, in late 2016, which took me about a year to make.

 

 

  • Secondly I did Spiralunky for the Doomworld Community Project 2017, which is really just a little gimmick map.
  • Finally, I did probably my most proud work: The Shuffling Madness for Confinement 256.  I used so many Line Portals so far with that map I ended up breaking GZDoom with previously unknown bugs (that thankfully were fixed in the latest release).

    However, it's literally the last map in the wad, so I wonder how many people actually got to see it?

I remember Spiralunky when you posted it and I personally thought it looked incredible.

I would agree that would be a good thing to have. I don't know if you would like to list it by individual maps by an author (such as this author made standalone map X, standalone map Y, and then map12 of Megawad project Z) or if you would list it by WAD files in which the author participated (such as Standalone map X by Author 1, Megawad Project Y by Author 1, Author A, and Author B, and then Megawad Project Z by Author A, Author D, Author 1, Author 5, Author X, and Author Z).

 

You could expand to include all files in general, I suppose.

So after a bit of hunting, I finally tracked down the old Deathmatch map that I made way back when. Fragmentation was made back in June of '99, when ZDoom was just a year old. I originally wanted to call the thing "Frag Mountain", but went with a brown motif rather than the grey of the SP_ROCK1 texture due to a certain grey marine having too much of a camouflage advantage during bot testing, something that isn't much of an issue these days with players being able to choose their color palette. I was in love with the railgun mutator back then, but I hadn't participated in a lot of Deathmatches back in the day, so I didn't know about things like lag that would affect your accuracy with hitscan weapons.

 

Fragmentation was a fairly small, fairly simple and rather amateurish little DM map -- four small rooms with staircases leading down to a small central arena with a rocket launcher. Four lifts with shotguns on them leading up to smaller rooms connecting to the big rooms, and four watery tunnels connecting the four surrounding rooms. I mentioned way back when that the map would be better as part of a DM megawad than as a standalone due to the small size. The music was composed by Kniggit, who may or may not still be around these parts, and is still rather awesome. I may want to use the music in question as part of a greater project, as quite frankly, I am not satisfied with just leaving it in this wad.

 

I may end up doing a remake of this map, expanding on the base of eighteen years ago, because there is a LOT of stuff about the map that could use improvement (weapon choices, ammo placement and use of torches being the big ones) and a LOT of expansion that I can make. I may even turn it into the base for a single-player map, because if nothing else, I have a pretty solid foundation to work from.

Never thought I would post in this topic, but here goes. Big moment for me.

 

Two maps published for Pigeon speed mapping. Map01 Gravedigger's Lot and Map02 Dead yet dreaming.

 

One map completed for Nova 3, Dante Allegory. Probably going to make an other but I find myself staring at the editor screen where I got like 6 different versions I started, fiddled around with and then stopped.

One map completed for Eagle speed mapping 07 - That followed me home, then I feel asleep and missed the second session by seven hours. :-þ
