    Rant and Rave


    Bloodshedder

    Andy Leaver has notified us of the release of his latest map, Rave, which includes a new Titlepic and music. This map does not require a source port. Find it at Andy Leaver's Doom Projects.

    Rave is filled with monsters and is not that big of a map. This is a sure way to test your skills at Doom!

    nope, not too hard.
    but then I didn't try it without the secrets... but I imagine that would just make it twice as long to play.
    If this is any sign of what NHFL2 will be like, I can't wait!

    Well, if it has new music, I guess I've gotta try it, don't I? ;-)

    EDIT: Just played it, here are my thoughts:

    Graphics: Maybe it's just me, but the title pic doesn't fit. I pressed end game after I finished it, and I saw game screen stuff to the right and bottom of the picture...

    Music: Ah... I know that music. I first heard it in Dimensions of Time (/megawads/dot.zip), and the txt for that wad hinted that it was either from Final Doom or ROTT. Either way, I just included it in level 14 of my own wad. It's good...

    Monsters: I wouldn't say it's chock-full of 'em. Then again, I played on skill 3 as I always do, so I didn't even need the soul sphere. In fact, I only found it after I reached the exit and then went back, using IDDT to find it (I found the other secret easily). The wad seems to depend a lot on infighting... or at least it could if you didn't have all that ammo.

    Overall: Good one. Take out a little of that ammo, and this could be a great first level for a megawad. If you ever consider making a megawad, use this for the first level! Then again, maybe you have - I haven't checked out your whole site yet...

    No secrets, but finished with exactly 1 shell and nothing else ;) Fast and furious, very fun map. I don't remember my time on the first run, but I'll be playing it again and getting those secrets!

    Interesting name... if it were really a rave there would be more flashing lights at least:)

    Wasn't too hard... if anything it was too easy, I finished it with all monsters dead on my first attempt, in just over 6 minutes (no savegames)

    Having said that I found the secret ammo (which was essential, at that point I had nothing left but fists... but I don't know, my aim was really off yesterday, for some reason...) I found the other secret but only after I'd killed all the monsters and gone back to look for it.

    I thought it was possibly a bit too short, it seemed to end rather suddenly. I agree it would be good as the first map of a set or something.

    Some of the architecture vaguely reminded me of Pablo Dictter's stuff, which is no bad thing. I think it was those diamond-shaped lights hanging from the ceiling towards the end.

    How come it's not in newstuff this week? Just a bit too late?

    Geez, is it really that much different in UV (which, since you had one shell and I had like 60, I'm assuming you were playing on)? I'm gonna go check...

    The site is still there, but the download link doesn't seem to work.

    I spent ages looking for a site that had Gather2; I didn't find any apart from this one. I can e-mail you the wad if you like. There was no text file with it, unfortunately.

    BTW, the demo's not that good :) At least, not as good as it will eventually be when I reach the exit via the route I've been using after getting that first exit.

    I see, heh, what you could do is include the WAD in the ZIP when you upload the run through the better route.

    So what's dead isn't drsleep's site (yeah... I had forgotten it was here on Doomworld) but the site with the WAD.

    The wad zips to 392K, so it would make the update zip a bit clunky (also, I'm not sure I'll ever succeed with the faster route - 122 attempts so far...). Probably better as a separate download from /sda/wad.

    Ok..there are to reasons that I made this map..

    1. To see if I could start and finish a good looking map on the same day :)

    2. To give everyone a view of what NHFL EP II will be like.

    Btw: Did i mention That NHFL ep II might be a Doom 2 project..Im not 100% sure on that..But who knows..
