I think this is a really good idea! Small mistake to report though: Map07, the level from Flashback, should have the Inferno hell sky, not the SOH Deimos sky. If you play Flashback Demo 1 with ZDoom, E2M5 indeed has the Inferno sky, consistent with it being a reimagining of the original E3M2 (Slough of Despair).

Also - for what it's worth - Congestion Control 2 (Map03) had a special ZDoom-only music track.

Sica: you were close, it is NUTS2. Smile Not sure if it is playable online though, we'll have to do some tests before the session. I hope everything will be fine cuz it's a funny map. Smile

InsaneDoomer: Thanks for the info, I'm a bit reluctant to do any changes since I already posted the link though... Some people already downloaded the wad, so if I update it they will be confused when the server will not let them join on Thursday... And which behavior is correct is debatable anyway since these wads aren't for ZDoom. So I think I'll leave it as it is for now. Find a more serious problem and maybe I'll fix everything. Razz

Yey! I knew it!

And about running the map, NUTS2 should run fine as it has considerably less monsters than NUTS or NUTS3.

in case you decide to release an update please change the name to e.g., TNSC2003a and the next update would be TNSC2003b and so on.
usually its better to add a letter to the wad from the start, then you can reserve the 'actual' name for the final release when all fixes are applied.

This might be true for the server ... the bottleneck will be the clients connections though. when you have that many monsters moving/changing states and spawning projectiles then that data needs to be sent to the client and it will be A LOT.
