check also ''TNT Duel wad''(see in RafaelB's youtube channel to download),released before!
Original wad file:d2duelremix.wad
This wad is a 32 map pack of all original DOOM2 levels remastered to duel.
Created to play in normal mode,with itens respawn and weapon stay! Maps were done to item controlling.
The objective of this wad is show to all people that original maps are cool and strategic.
Because they were balanced in this wad and scrapped bad original parts.
All megashperes were replaced by supercharges,because mega is unbalanced for multiplayer.

But whats the difference between this wad remix and old doom2duel released before??
Remix is done to play in normal mode,with itens respawn and weapon stay.The old was for altdeath(weapons respawn after).
The maps in remix were even more reduced than doom2duel altdeath.Remix is for more ''action'' game.Also,many secrets of original maps are now shown to unexperienced players.I can say Remix is more similar to popular zddl style and old version altdeath is to original style.
Doom2duel altdeath respects more old item placement and playability.Remix makes all maps reduced for action mode and all spawns with weapons.
Most maps have removed or reduced invul/invisible in this version, but there are strategies to avoid them.
Invul rests for 30 secs and is detectable.invisible for 60 secs,and not useful in light areas.if your opponent is invisible,avoid dark areas.
For invul,just shoot hitscan and you can see puffs and not blood in the player.
Also, it will not scream.If you die, just wait opponent's 30secs finishes.Also works to invisible.
It's more easy dodge invul than bfg, because invul is only run or hide.Maps in this wad have BFG in harder areas.
best maps in MY opinion to play(maps that skill and strategy is more required,but feel free to play others):1,2,3,5,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,18,19,20,23,27,28,31.
