This week it's time to play another wad with a story. The wad project was called "The Rebirth" and was created by Bjorn Ostmann from Germany. I e-mailed him that we are going to play his creation next friday, so he might make an appearance! Smile

Here's the story behind this wad. He wrote it himself:

"12 years after the Overlord of hell was defeated, humankind has rebuilded and repopulated Earth. The old threat from the flaming pits of hell, seemed to be forgotten. In this time nobody knows that a small part of the Overlords brain has survived and reanimated itself.

You wake up in your quarter on the Starbase Omega2, when the first demons start to invade earth once again.While you're hearing the fighting sounds outside your room, you grab your pistol and prepare yourself to blast some ugly creatures."


This wad was suggested by C-Robert. Thanks for the suggestion and enjoy!

Were also going to use the freshly released Monster Skins wad created by Krawa. Im sure you will enjoy those as well. Smile More information about this new wad can be found here.

Why do you seemingly insist on trying every possible method to turn these co-op games into a total joke?

Monster player skins in a game that revolves around shooting monsters? Can anybody else see what's wrong with this picture?
I really thought it was only totally green serverhosts that did this kind of thing.

Cybershark has a point there, Ron. Monster skins just won't work in a wad where you have to shoot monsters. Leave it to PvP modes, rjumping wads, etc.

You're right, this is a bad idea. Embarassed I did not think about it like that. Please forgive me. I was a little too enhousiastic about running this wad. I hope it will see daylight elsewhere soon. Smile

This will have much fun with infinite ammo in my opinion because 2x monster strength will make this quite hard Razz

Monster skins is made by Krawa. Krawa is god of ZDS.

That's why I stopped putting skins.wad on my server. I use 25marinepack2_b.wad instead.

Yeah, that's one of the better choices out there!

Sadly, most other packs have one or two which make them somehow unsuitable.

I think you should turn map voting ON Ron. Me and another guy got stuck in level 23 and couldn't do anything to change the map so left the server. After 7 hours I connected again and still I see the server's map is Map23.

I should've given maps a look to see if there are any multiplayer incompatibilities, just the same way I checked newgothic movement wad. :l

Played a few US rounds, had a lot of fun. Had forgotten how cool those headless former humans are Smile

Wish there'd been more players, but most of them were off playing defiler. What do you have to do to get through to these people that there's a community event going on?
