  1. After several VERY near misses, died in the start room of MAP06. Kind of glad, because I left doing this to the very last minute this month and I only had another 20 minutes or so left of free time. ur_stewboy.zip
  2. portals yep! Really trying to throw myself into the deep end with Eternity - learning EDF and everything.
  3. I don't really know what I'm doing I'm just putting corridors together and it's getting out of hand
  4. First ever ironman attempt aaaand... DNF due to map bug. Forgot about the MAP05 warning... insrtion_stewboy.zip
  5. Keep in mind that you'll need to mess around with some form of skulltag_data.pk3 and skulltag_actors.pk3 to get most of these to work - I don't know Satan's Covenant, but I'm guessing that's why it didn't work. I can't get them working in single player, but that's probably because I'm not loading the data.pk3 and actors.pk3 correctly (dragging and dropping on zandronum.exe can be a bit vague when you actually need a specific load order). Alpha/Delta Invasion is a thing. Kind of old (2006/7), not sure how some of the maps stand up today. I have four maps in alpha and two maps in delta and there's a lot of stuff in them that makes me cringe now. Zero Invasion is also a thing, but I'm not sure if it was ever finished. You can still take a look at it though - 1 2 3. I never participated in this one, so I don't know anything about it. Invasion Unleashed is a big project with maps of varying quality. I don't know if it was ever officially released though - b72 is what I have on my computer, and I have no idea if there's a more recent build. Again, this is from 2006/7 or thereabouts. How do I know? Because I wrote nightrun.mid for my map in it, which I then submitted to plutonia 2 (map16) which was under development at the time :) Chaos From Hell Invasion is something I have lying around in my doom folder, but I don't think I've ever played it. 1 2 seem to be the most recent builds. Made by Blood, who I'm guessing decided to concentrate more on Complex Doom Invasion. Ultimate Torment and Torture Invasion is something I also found in my doom folder, but I don't think I've ever played online. Invasion Unleashed: Evil Within is a project which was started but I believe unfinished. This is the most recent build I can find, but I don't even know if it's playable. It's clear that Blood recycled at least one or two of his maps from this project to use in Complex Doom Invasion, so I'm assuming that means the project died. Speaking of CD Invasion, you're probably already aware of it (it's reasonably popular on zandronum), but it is an active project still being worked on. I won't link to it because there's a bunch of files and I'm lazy and you can get them off doomseeker. I also have two maps in this, which I am much more proud of than any invasion map I've made in the past. There's probably other invasion projects that are out there (started and forgotten about, no doubt) but these are the ones I either participated in or I have on my hard drive. This is not really for multiplayer, but Unknown Invasion is a set of four invasion maps I made back in 2006. They're the first invasion maps I ever made, and among the first serious maps of any type I ever made. If nothing else, you can enjoy the insight into 14-year-old me's brain.
  6. I like the idea of going over and under things
  7. Finally attempting a full-scale map with Eternity.
  8. Hey so I don't think I've shared anything about these yet over here! As well as writing a bunch of doom midis (and branching into tracking, chiptune etc) I thought I might share some live recordings of actual concert pieces that I've written! (As a side note, I am one of the performers in every one of these recordings!) Aviary (wind band, 5:30) 'Aviary' is a work I wrote for my university's wind ensemble, whose conductor had wanted me to write something for years. I tried to explore as much tonal and textural colour as I could. Live recording from April of this year. Three Sketches for Two Marimbas (marimba duet, 5:40) A few years ago I wanted to write something for a percussion ensemble I played in, but writing something for everybody turned out to be difficult so I decided to start small and just write a duet. This was the first piece I ever wrote for live performance, and I kept it fairly simple, with three short movements each exploring a different musical idea. Live recording from nearly two years ago. (I'm playing the marimba part which starts off the first and the third movements) Amazing Grace (handbell ensemble, 2:44) Yes, handbell ensembles are a thing, and my university has one, and I played with them during 2016. I wrote this piece for them. Live recording from a year ago. A not so live recording: Country Walk (wind quintet, 6:00) Not performed yet because I only finished writing it last week, so here's the Sibelius audio output. Written for a newly formed wind quintet at my university, hopefully will be performed in September. I am also in the progress of writing a saxophone quartet and a flute duet at the moment. If you'd like to support me in my expensive venture across to Scotland to study composition further (I've never formally studied composition before!) you can contribute here. Any small amount is appreciated :)
  9. I just wanted to share the one classical piece that had the most influence on my compositional style. Ancient Aliens could not have been the same without it!

      its beautiful

  10. So I made a quick something with the intention of MAP06 but maybe it turned out too classical/'happy', in which case I'll just use it for something else :) I had great fun writing all the chords in any case so it was worth it either way. Flight of the Fox (2:06) Edit: I just took notice of @Viscra Maelstrom's post, looks like you beat me! Interesting how you had a much heavier interpretation of the map. I was thinking more of the player's movements rather than the action.
  11. Have I mentioned yet that I'm moving to Glasgow in three months to study a masters in composition? Because I am!

      Not much, but good luck at the study. Don't forget to make more Doom musics :P

      That's awesome, enjoy the Glass Cow!

  12. Something a little different, a piece I wrote for my university wind band! Recording from a couple months ago.
  13. If anyone's interested in hearing an alternate version of this, the track I based it off is something I did in an hour or so back in late 2011.
  14. Probably the midi from the 'classic' megawads that I enjoy the most is MAP09 from MM2. I never see it in other people's favourite MIDI lists, so it's maybe a little odd that I enjoy it so much. Maybe the instrumentation speaks to me, maybe I just love hearing how it progresses. It's not the most listenable on its own, but I've never yet tired of it ingame. In other wads, there isn't necessarily a favourite midi I like listening to. It's odd, but I don't actually tend to listen to music that much just by itself. So I would have to go through every wad with custom music and just list the midis I like, which could get long. As for non-doom favourite midis, anything I use in my own maps is always going to be a midi I really enjoy. The stuff I used in Destination Unknown I still like (except for MAP18's track which was one of the earliest midis I ever wrote, back in 2005).
  15. That track was actually written for a different map that didn't end up making it in to the wad, so no hard feelings :)
