I wont be adding anymore to the level after this point. Although I do plan to do some bug fixing if the need arises. I hope to hear and see what people think of the level. The video below goes into detail on the design philosophy that went into its creation.
And if you just want to see the level in action I included a full play through of Redemption Of The Slain on Ultra Violence difficulty with 100% secrets and under Par time. When you watch me play this level you can get a true feeling that I might have played this level a lot. I am quite sick of it now honestly! lol
note: Currently it does not seem possible to get 100% on monsters right now. The level spawns a massive army and it seems some glitch out and never go toward the kill count properly.
If you decide to play the level through and upload a video I may post a reaction video in response. I find this enjoyable and it may lead to me making changes to the level if you find a bug or something along those lines.
If you can beat this level on Black Metal difficulty without the use of manual saves you are a fucking Doom god. Relying 100% on just the levels built in auto saves makes this map fucking monstrously difficult to beat. And the final battle on Black Metal is absolutely the hardest fucking thing I have played in Doom. Be prepared to fail if you try.
I would seriously get a kick out of actually seeing someone beat this level without the use of manual saves on Black Metal Difficulty.
Make sure to have a copy of the original Doom2.wad. You can get this by buying a copy of Doom 2 on steam. If you dont have this the level wont be playable.
You need a copy of the latest GZDoom found on the link below. Once you have this unpack the files into a GZDoom folder.
Now you need 2 Brutal Doom files. One is the core Brutal Doom20b.pk3 file. Unpack brutalv20b.pk3 into the GZDoom folder.
The second file is for the music. Unpack the DoomMetalVol4 into the GZDoom folder.
And finally a copy of Doom2 Redemption Of The Slain. Unpack all files into the GZDoom folder.
Ok there is one more step to the installation process. The game will crash if you dont fix an error within Brutal Doom. The error is located in a text file called blood.txt found within the Doom20b.pk3. Open up Doom20b.pk3 with a winzip or winrar and copy the blood.txt file included in the ROTS_Version1.rar overwriting the blood.txt within Doom20b.pk3
Run the PlayROTS.bat file to begin playing the game. I use the bat file to give the game proper settings for things like mouse look and wasd movement keys by default. I also toggle a lot of basic settings that I feel work best with the level.
