    Closing Wad Archive

    I have decided to shut down Wad Archive as I don't have time to dedicate to it anymore and just not motivated. I don't have an exact date/time yet but it is currently no longer updated. Since I would rather not have the archive go to waste I have uploaded all the WADs, images and database data to the internet archive https://archive.org/details/wadarchive . The entire unpacked archive is around 1TB and is stored in a way that made it easier/faster for the server to use rather than for someone manually browsing the files. I won't be releasing the code for the website itself or the indexing code and I am not interested in allowing someone else to host it, feel free to create your own with the data. All the database files fit in the free tier at https://www.mongodb.com/atlas/database except for lumps.json.

    Try reading the readme https://archive.org/download/wadarchive/README.MD

    Have a read of README.MD, it will tell you the structure files. You have the hash already (E27E8B77D94E3A4C6FAE0F0310D36F881484C951) so won't take forever. It will be in DATA/e2.zip

    You could just use the torrent provided by archive.org:

    They are all there, have a look at the archive listing (the 'Show All' link). I have also upload a CSV that lists all the WAD SHA1 hashes and the filenames: https://archive.org/download/wadarchive/wads-list.csv

    Yes it is dump from mongodb, have a look at README.MD. Yea lumps.json is a biggie which is why I uploaded it compressed.

    I have attached a list of all the sites that are scraped. Some may not longer exist or provide WADs anymore If you are wanting a list from ID to map name then just parse wads.json. Being JSON it is easy to handle with javascript. sites.zip

    I can generate a list of WADs and upload it when I get home from work. The SEO part was probably due to what my job was at the time, glad it was working haha. As for the list of sites that are scraped, I could list them here but not sure if I will include it in the internet archive. Most likely

    haruko haruhara megathread (favorite CDs)

    I have roughy 84,000 wads on my site and that is almost at 1TB so good luck hosting 80,000,000 (if you can even find that many)

    If only there was a contact link on the website https://www.wad-archive.com/contact . I used to have a 'Megawad' section (>=15 maps) but when redesigning everything I didn't add it in. I might do it some day in the future

    DOOM Unity port WAD Suggestion thread

    The IWAD and source ports listed a generally guesses from different sources but mainly from @MTrop's library https://mtrop.github.io/DoomStruct/index.html (however the one I am using is probably out of date). It should be seen more as 'it should work on this but might work on source ports'. There is no way I am going over 90,000 WADs manually

    Do you own any old game consoles/games

    I got a fair few: Atari 2600 Atari 7200 Atari Lynx Atari Lynx 2 Game Boy Game Boy Pocket Game Boy Colour Game Boy Advanced Sega SC-3000 (not really a game console as such) Game Gear Master System Master System 2 Mega Drive 2 Mega CD 2 Sega 32x Sega Saturn Dreamcast NES Sharp Twin Famicom Famicom Disk System Super Nintendo Super Famicom Nintendo 64 Gamecube (with Gameboy Player) Wii Wii U Xbox Xbox 360 Playstation Playstation 2 Playstation 3 Tempest Pong (SD-050 clone, in the process of repairing it) Some of the above I have multiple of (eg minor variations like the Master System 2 with Alex Kidd or Sonic built in). Most of them were bought in an 'as-is' state and repaired/fixed. I would like to get a few more, especially consoles that didn't make it to this part of the world but it is hard to justify the prices now. As for a games collection, I have a few for most of the systems above but they can pretty much have an everdrive/softmod to play any game. The only real game collection that I have is the Doom engine games

    Quake Remastered

    I have been playing the new mission pack the last few nights and really enjoying it. Just need to learn to save more, too used to checkpoints these days

    Doom 32X Resurrection

    I really need to get around to trying this as I have a 32x, Mega CD and the Mega Drive has the CCAM installed. If only there were more hours in day....
  15. The missing filenames? I know there are some that for whatever reason I don't have the filenames anymore (lost in a database migration maybe?). So it defaults to the WAD hash. I am out of town right now so will have to have a look next week
  16. I am most of the way through re-writing the indexing logic and I have checks in place for this. Just need to get off my butt and complete it
  17. I have added them manually. They weren't automatically added because the file 'midis\VICTOR STILES - Ammo Count: 00.mid' has a ':' in it and this is invalid on Windows/NTFS. The code that does the indexing is rather old and doesn't handle this well

    When did Doom WAD's hit their Peak?

    Unfortunately I only have the dates they were first added to the archive
  19. Probably because ads are on the site when you aren't logged in?
  20. That is what I use for my site, I didn't take over 320,000 screenshots manually. It is easy enough to do, the tricky part is making sure you are using the correct IWAD and engine (and download the WAD if you don't have it locally). Running it over the WADs from the shovelware discs would make it easier as they are likely to work on any engine these days.

    Doom 32X Resurrection

    The video above by Vic is on real hardware. I have been meaning to test it out on my 32x but haven't had the time
  24. Played the first 10 levels or so, kinda fun but probably get a bit boring after a while

    Doom 32X Resurrection

    I got a 32x and I will give it a go if I can compile it
