DeusVult.WAD: I need beta testers

Hi, I'm the creator of the WAD formerly known as "Attrition", the physical form of the WAD is complete--architecturally and spatially--and now I have to implement enemies, health, and ammo.

Sure... I can go ahead and scatter a bunch of foes and ammo everywhere and release my level, but that's not what I want; this is my first map and I'm going to make it as strong of a level as any fare that gets released.

I am pretty new to the community, so I do not know many people with Doom skills and experience, save for a few. So that is why I'm appealing to you guys to help me out here. I need a third, and fourth opinion gameplay-wise.

Before I go into any more detail, a few questions:

1) Do you like large maps?
2) Do you like large-scale, knockout fighting?
3) Do you like the AV/HR/Nuts series?
4) Can your computer handle 39,000 sidedefs?
5) Can you handle some lag? It will not be so bad to affect gameplay.
6) Can you beat AV-26 on UV with little save?

...If you said yes to most of these questions... continue on...

Deus Vult is an extremely large map that caters to those who craves constant fighting of every type. It will pit you against hundreds and hundreds of monsters in the spirit of Alien Vendetta. It is not one of those maps that tries to balance ammo on the edge of a knife that wears players out. This map is all about tactical, knockout fights: you are provided all the shotgun shells and bullets you can ever dream of, all you have to do is keep alive amidst the claws and fireballs.

Click Here if you want to see a few screenshot of what I have to offer, it's not bad.

Note that this level ONLY uses Vannilla Doom features, and the murals that appears to be more than 128 units high are achieved by cunning visual tricks.

If you like what you see and would like to help in developing it, give me your AIM or Msn Messenger or E-Mail Address in the private message board.

I'd like some feedback based on what you saw so far, thank you for your time.

Hmm. I've played the demo and I'm still curious as to how this will turn out. Count me in, although I will be busy with college work these days.

1) Do you like large maps?
No, I think they are boring
2) Do you like large-scale, knockout fighting?
In certain places, not everyware
3) Do you like the AV/HR/Nuts series?
No
4) Can your computer handle 39,000 sidedefs?
I don't know, probably not
5) Can you handle some lag? It will not be so bad to affect gameplay.
ONe of the things that allow DOOM to compit with modern games is it speed, is not a good idea to eliminate that.
6) Can you beat AV-26 on UV with little save?
No

Why don't you realize a mini episode or something? IMO, good interconected medium dinamic maps are far better than the larger ones.

Seems Geo is having some problems again...

We've all been around since the very start of this "Epic" map... Epic in all ways I must add. So far I've never, ever played a map that lives up to Attrition (Deus Vult), and I believe it'll be quite sometime before another map quite like Deus Vult comes knocking...

This is a massive level, in all ways, and I for one think that it should stay as a single level and not split up like some believe it should be... I think Converted DooMer knows exactly what he's doing, and I'm sure that in the end we will all be very, very pleased with the result...

I can't wait... :)

PS: Don't fucking give the download address away unless you already know it.

1) Do you like large maps?
not really, prefer medium, medium-small
2) Do you like large-scale, knockout fighting?
if you mean intense, prolonged fighting, it pisses me off
3) Do you like the AV/HR/Nuts series?
don't think I've played them
4) Can your computer handle 39,000 sidedefs?
probably not
5) Can you handle some lag? It will not be so bad to affect gameplay.
have to put up with at least a little bit of it playing 75% of maps
6) Can you beat AV-26 on UV with little save?
haven't played it but I guess I couldn't

*reads further down*

well I kinda answered no to these so I probably won't enjoy it and my machine's likely to crash but I'll have a look anyway..
