It took about 4 month to build it (but building process relatively slow), and it can take about 45-50 mins to complete it. What is included? New textures, soundtrack, decorations implemented with Dehacked, including one destructiblem, and also some little gameplay modifications. There is no special story for it. Just another base, another demonic invasion and you are another marine who will fight against it. I advice to play it without mods that alter doom 2 things (Brutal Doom for example), they may conflict with modifications already made for this map. Playing on UV is recommended. I hope you will enjoy it.

The Spectre map is based off the Goldeneye 64 game, or James Bond movies as a whole. This is my first map so there might be some fails in it.

Why isn't there a seperate engine-page for ZDoom or GZDoom? They are much more advanced then the vanilla Doom engine they derived from.

A page about Doom Engine The Great... with Heretic screen on top!
I knew Heretic is more attracting: the "only" FPS set in fantasy\medieval enviroment.

Elder Scrolls isn't created on Doom Engine nor has nothing similar into it.
