To submit a wad for review, start a new topic in this forum and include a link to where your wad can be downloaded from. The zip file and wad file must have the same title and contain no capital letters or excess characters, if they do, we will not be able to upload them to the GSN servers for hosting. Wads can be DM, CTF, COOP, SP, Weapons or Skins packs as long as they run on ZDaemon. Please also include a text file in the zip, a template can be found here http://members.home.nl/meuwissenth/zdaemon/zdreview_form.txt

Wads will be reviewed weekly. Once the review has been published the wad (provided it's multiplayer) will be hosted for a minimum of a week on GSN, outstanding wads will also be hosted on one of CodeImps servers.

For hosting purposes, please state the map numbers, DM flags preferred, time limit if applicable and player size limit. Please also remember to re-name wads that have been edited and re-submitted for a review and hosting to prevent players from getting a bad wad message when they try to join.

Thanks Smile

Hey not so fast Razz I said in my other posts that I could dedicate a server for ZDreview if needed, but so far I haven't had anyone asking, not even one of them have been talking to me about this, so I guess I'll take that as a no.

I thought my previous post on my other thread where I said that would be excellent said yes please, sorry if I wasn't clear Confused . No you won't get a request as yet, as the reviews haven't started yet. I'll chat to you in IRC about developments and how the whole thing is going to work, then you can decide if you want to give access to one of your servers when an exceptional wad turns up or not Smile

If this system runs like it's supposed to, with reviews being done on a sunday, then the reviewer can do a summary post with a link. It can also go on the news.

Can you please make a mention of screen shots? I really like seeing screenshots when seeing maps put up for review, and none of the people so far have put any up.

Two caveats. ZDaemon automatically outputs to PCX. You can convert the PCX to PNG rather easily with MSPaint. The other caveat is where to host the images. That's a rather easy solution with services like Imageshack avalable.

EDIT: My mistake, Snowbrow did in fact include a screenshot for one of his maps.

Some including yours have been done, TUD will be doing the rest and maybe maniac will add a couple more, when thats done one of them will write a summary, each review will probably be linked to on the wads own thread, and they'll get hosted when that's done. here's what has been done so far http://www.zdaemon.org/wadreview/
