    The DWmegawad Club plays: Three is a Crowd

    New thread is up
  2. What is the DWmegawad Club? This is a place where we settle down, have a cup of tea (or drink of your choice) and take a month to play through a megawad on our own, together! Any keen observations, criticisms, or frustrated ranting about it goes here in the discussion. As long as you want to say something about what you've played, feel free to speak your mind. Can I join? Sure. The only rule is that you have to play at least some of the levels in our monthly megawad to contribute, but you're generally encouraged to finish the whole thing, even if you've played it before. What levels am I allowed to post about? Whatever day of the month it is, is the upper limit for the map you can post on. So if it’s the 6th, you may discuss up to MAP06. Do I have to post an entry every day? Nope, not at all. This is only for our more enthusiastic members. As long as you play through it with us you’re part of the club. When do we vote on the next month’s megawad? Voting begins on the 25th of the current month. Remember to add one “+++” before your vote to make it easier to count. For example: +++ Ultimate Doom Note that you can only nominate up to three separate wads for a single month, and the wads must contain at least three maps each. The winning wad must receive at least four votes for a thread to be made. Ties will be decided by RNG. ---------- >>>DOWNLOAD DBP26 HERE<<< >>>DOWNLOAD DBP7 HERE<<< >>>DOWNLOAD DBP19 HERE<<< As the year comes to a close, we’ll finally be playing some projects to come out of the mapping scene’s Intellectual Dark Web, the Doomer Boards! We’ll be starting with a revolution in France with DBP26: The City of Damned Children, then engaging in some holiday cheer with DBP7: The Merry Christmassy Doom Project, and then kicking back and opening up some xmas cards with DBP19: A Doomer Boards Christmas Carol. Known for their vibrant textures, humorous design, and impressive development times (1 month each project!!!), these maps are guaranteed to send 2020 out with a BANG! DBP26 runs from the 1st to the 11th, DBP7 runs from the 12th to the 16th, and DBP19 runs from the 17th onward, playing TWO maps a day (the odd numbered maps are intermission maps).

  4. Howdy folks! Here is the current alpha for zekhmet. Out of the 11 songs yakfak has written, we have maps for 10 of these. The last song—on MAP01—is a map I have started but haven't finished. Here is my progress on it: I planned to finish this in the first half of the year, but I've only started mapping again last month. I don't have plans to work on my zekhmet MAP01 until my UDINO commitments are finished, which are next on the docket. Missing from zekhmet are the graphics, like the TITLEPIC, INTERPIC, CWILVs, etc. It would also be cool to have an epilogue map, but we'd also need a tune for it, which IIRC yakfak was working on at least one song last year The only other issue is that MAP02 by @Finnthemapmaker is missing textures and honestly feels like it was dumped off on us, instead of being made for the project like the other contributions. Something could be done with it, but it would need extensive editing. As it currently stands, it's the only map I wouldn't accept if I was project lead. I appreciate the willing assistance from walter, but I think we're in need of contributions, not organizing.

    The ULTIMATE Master WAD Guide

    A really cool collection of starter wads, though I would've opted to put BtSX front and center for the ways it focuses on both new & oldschool stuff. Still, a really handy list for anyone yearning to jump into the world of Doom mapping!
  7. Coming up with some different puzzles for Boom, and as I'm writing them down in a document I check some of my previous notes, and the only thing I wrote for one puzzle was:

     

    Life maze?

      I think GoS is right and I think I remember what I wanted to do for it :)

      Pickup puzzles are an underrated niche. I have a couple i need to finish myself

  8. I appreciate the playthrough and write-up—you're not alone in having a negative experience whilst playing it. I typically design Ultra-Violence to be "tough" even when you know the map front to back, and this goes doubly so for Saturnine Chapel, which was made largely in part because I wanted to make a map I didn't have to "water down". I consistently hold the belief that most of my maps are at their "funnest" on HMP, offering a good challenge without beating you over the head. Saturnine, of course, is a big exception, as it's meant to be rude and claustrophobic and very punishing to the tiniest of slip-ups. Sorry to hear that the map runs slow for you. It's not the DEHACKED that's the problem, it's that the map is really large and full of linedefs, which can slow the gameplay to a crawl depending on your port & graphics card.

      For future reference, the only time you need to worry about me posting is when it's like, the 3rd or something. I usually get around to it by the end of the 1st, EST time.

    :) Been Doom-averse since wrapping up Dark Scythe back in April, but I've been trying to get back into mapping so I can at least push out at least one other thing before the year ends.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Hell Revealed 2

    Kudos on the write-up Demon, you gave a very thorough and reasonable tour through your time with the map. Figured you'd enjoy the map with "wry amusement" specifically for the reason you mentioned—the map is very much a rude "know what you're doing or pay the price" kind of experience. And naturally, I wasted shotgun ammo, used all my rockets halfway through, and checked all the wrong areas before finding the SSG in the southeast. The worst was having like 16 shells to deal with the big AV/sergeant/rev hootenanny at the northwest, but like you said it's mercifully an optional part of the map. Glad to see you appreciate 15 & 32 as well; I think had I found the BFG sooner for 15 it would've been a top 3 of the set. Looks like Chrozoron is the only one that properly understood HR's design.
