    DBP23: Evil Egypt

    Just started Level 5 of Evil Egypt! Level 4 was one of the best levels I've ever played in that style. Welllllll done. Incidentally, I am playing on HMP and the skill level seems really well balanced for that too. No big issues so far. A few spots where I had to jump / crouch but I always assume you don't have to. Are all of these levels updates of previous levels?

    Tell me more WADs that really capture the original Doom style

    UPDATE! I am on LEVEL 6 of No Sleep For The Dead now! After replaying LEVEL 1 and trying better use of ammo, I managed to press on and I'm not having any issues now. And I am quite enjoying your levels! Realllllly like how you tend to show the secrets that people missed close to the level exits. That often encouraged me to backtrack and try for them. Now one tiny thing I didn't realize is that I needed to use the JUMP key. I just figured that out in LEVEL 6 After Level 5 the "classic Doom" thing seems to kind go by the wayside but I hope to finish off the final 9th LEVEL tonight.

    My First WAD - Roland.pk3

    I haven't played many GZDoom-specific WADs but I really enjoyed this! It felt very fresh to me. Also for once I enjoyed playing a map with nukage-style floor I wasn't used to the look of the switches, so it took me a bit longer to figure out how to finish than it should have (not realizing a few things were actually switches). But I got 100% everything. I didn't find any issues, and would definitely play more of your maps.

    I'm 8 levels into Wonderful Doom and this is a good retro .WAD so far. It's not holding my interest like the first 4-5 levels did but I may come back to it.

    Haha I tried this out, and I survived a whole 15 seconds on your "Bonus" level on Hurt Me Plenty, ooooof.

    Just finished! Didn't find the 9th level, and I didn't get my rocket launcher until like level 6 but I really enjoyed all 8 maps! I did get very lost a few times. You like If you have any more like this let me know.

    Finished the first 3 levels. Lots of fun and perfect length and so far they are exactly what I was hoping for, thank you! I'd love to make some maps like this someday.

    Give me your WADs - I WILL PLAY AND RECORD THEM.

    P.S. It's "WRATH", i.e. Thy WRATH Unleashed :)

    I'll look into the switch issues, thank you! In some spots I wanted people to think they were pulling the power and I am not sure that concept came across. The lava textures on the ceiling have to stay as that's part of the "hell" motif, but I did try and mix it up with rock (and such) in some parts. Something I am noticing is that every player is missing one Archvile + Berserk room in Level 3. You missed it, and Clippy did too. Suitepee didn't miss it as I actually added that room (and quite a bit of stuf) after Suitepee had already streamed it (he played a much older version). You can only get to this room from the big elevator that brings you down. (You can go up and down that elevator as much as you want BTW). You didn't explore Level 3 as much as 1 or 2 so I am wondering if you were bored or distracted. Missed a tonne of stuff (not just secrets) :) Thanks again for playing, and I am adding your name to the THANK YOUs in my text file that comes with the map.

    Just played the first level and got everything. Question about the 2nd secret: I had to jump to get it, was there another way to do it? Will jumping be a necessity throughout this WAD?

    I will check ALL of these out, thanks for the suggestions everyone! FYI not looking just for "vanilla" textures, etc. but more specifically their layouts and how the play and feel. I've yet to find anything that feels like the original Doom levels.

    Doom Streams

    Sorry that I missed the live stream! Send me a link to your YouTube channel once you post the video and I'll watch it, take notes, and fix anything you find. Thank you!

    Thanks! For some reason the "Texas" link is broken, but I got it from Greece. Will try this out. Incidentally I did a search and found this from 2012: I assume the one you linked is just the newest version? Looks like 2019?
  14. On my PC I have a folder for WADs, and that's divided into "To play" and "Finished!" My "To Play" folder could really use for some more WADs done in the classic original Doom style. FYI I am 9 levels into "Doom 2 the Way id Did" and while I think they missed a few key design signatures that id Software / Romero wouldn't do, I am having lots of fun with them. Just randomly saw a review for it on the sidebar of this website and tried it out. I also need to play "Doom 1 the Way id Did" if it exists? And what else should I try?
