    How long was Evilution in development for?

    All right. Before I made the thread I did check the wiki page for the wad itself, but that post persuaded me to check out the team's page, which lead me to the page on Wikipedia they apparently still have in this day and age, and that finally lead me to this old Ty Halderman interview that gives a date of "late 1994" at the very earliest. So yeah, most likely at a point when Doom 2 was available.

    I think the chances are a lot higher if development started before Doom 2 was released, which is why I'm asking.
  3. I was just thinking about how two of its maps shared its names with Doom 1 levels, and suddenly wondered if that's because it was originally going to be a Doom 1 megawad and the levels are from that far back in development.

    Is this Mac/PC Doom source code on ebay legit?

    I still find it likely that Deadlock is a cut Master Level, judging by the date on it compared to the idgames version and it being mentioned in this file Romero shared (it has no extension but you can still open it in a text editor).

    Now that you mention it, E1M1.MID.2 sounds kind of like a broken version of the WebTV upload of At Doom's Gate.

    Is this Mac/PC Doom source code on ebay legit?

    There are four more PWADs found in "DOOM II 1.0.2\WAD Files" and again in "UltDoom\UDOOM 1.0.2\Misc\WAD Files". These are ENTERPRZ.WAD (which appears to be the only one of the four on idgames), G50.WAD, OOPS.WAD and TMPLDOOM.WAD. They all have .txt files (or in tmpldoom's case, a .wri file) making it clear who made them, except for G50. That one still appears as part of Maximum Doom, as does ENTERPRZ, but not the other two.

    It could also be there because it was intended for Master Levels. If so, it's a shame it appears to be the only one there.

    I checked out NEW.WAD and for some reason it immediately felt so familiar. Thankfully, being from the first year or so of PWAD history narrowed it down considerably. A few of the wads I'd played before from that time period were chosen because there was something significant about another wad the author was involved with. For example, I once did a marathon of Scott Harper's wads because he co-authored Oracle with Jim Flynn. Once Scott's name was back in my head, I checked his wiki page and quickly found what I was looking for: Deadlock - Beyond Quad. The version on idgames is dated 1997, has the lumps arranged in a slightly different order, and has a few differences in thing placement I haven't really looked at in detail.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    The Wraithverge projectile (before it splits into ghosts) is a recolored phoenix rod projectile.
  10. Eviternity 2: Whoops I overshadowed Romero's anniversary project again
  11. I was allowed to retry Jägermörder after accidentally pressing the "restart level" key in my first recording. I think that was more lenient than allowing a retry in this situation would be.
  12. I once tried overlaying map images I'd exported from Slade in paint.net. I can't remember which ones specifically, but there were quite a few maps that were directly connected in-game but too far apart when assembled into one image.
  13. I don't know how long this has been the case but these are two old Raven games id wasn't involved with so now I'm feeling a little more optimistic about the likes of Shadowcaster, Heretic II and Portal of Praevus becoming available again.

    Best use of potatoes

    Throwing them at people. Don't get me wrong, they're fine to eat, but the best use of anything that can be thrown (so in other words, theoretically anything) is throwing it at someone.

    Obviously very true Doom facts thread

    He didn't, but his evil twin John Cormack made Unholy Cathedral. Crossing Acheron was a lot closer to his original vision though. (source)
