A new Doom map project release | Akoopasoup - Free Lyle

Posted by Killerratte - July 15th, 2020

I'm sort of back from the dead. Here's my newest finished project:


Akoopasoup - Free Lyle is a three map WAD for Doom 2 with classic Doom gameplay. It requires a ZDoom-based port like Zandronum or GZDoom to run. The maps can all be pistol started, have been tested thoroughly and can be quite tough. I've made sure to include all difficulty settings


Designed for no crouching and no jumping, Freelook not required. Cooperative play is possible, but not tested.


Gameplay time: Map01 & 02 - 10 minutes each, Map03 - 30 to 45 minutes.




Demons have blasted through your house wall and took your pet turtle Lyle. Fight your way to the infested Tech Citadel that poisons the skies and rescue your friend.

Further info


I've been working on this little project since 2014, but only did serious progress in the last 4 months, when I decided to finally finish it. Map03 was the first one I worked on, but was the last I've finished, because I changed it a lot over the years, it is also the largest of the three.


The WAD features a Doom-style soundtrack by YouTube musician JD Herrera https://www.youtube.com/user/az0919 . I've rearranged and edited his music to fit the gameplay, his music was the main reason why I wanted to continue my work.


The custom textures in this WAD are from Lunatic.wad by the legendary Skillsaw. I used his wad as a base to learn how to put a wad together in the first place, though I honestly still suck ass at the whole editing thing and it's a wonder that it all worked out in the end.

This is my second WAD release, my previous one from 2013 is called HAM.wad and can be found here: https://mega.nz/file/HtlnnQyK#y6_YTQzsFbXVtIR8JKaElagyyezczma3TOcugUcK4vs


I hope you guys enjoy my little project.


Also before anyone asks, I have no active video projects going ... and C&C Remastered is actually shocklingly well-made, one can only wonder how EA will manage to fuck up the next remastered releases, because it's in their blood to do just that.

I love doom. I think I'll check it out. Thanks.

How are still able to play doom on modern computer?

See MisterPersonGuy's reply. Source ports are the best way to play nowadays.

Use a source port like gzdoom or zandronum to play doom on a modern computer.

Hey, I tried a little bit of your maps. I like 'em so far! However, I'm havin' some technical trouble: the skybox in 'Akoopasoup - Free Lyle' doesn't render properly. Is that a problem with the WAD?

Switch to OpenGL instead of Software mode. That should fix it, others had this problem too.

@grimview Lemme give you a quick setup:

1. Use a launcher like ZDL (I use ZDL https://github.com/qbasicer/qzdl/releases/download/v3.2.2.2-stable/ZDL-

2. Find a source port (I recommend QZDoom): https://qzdoom.drdteam.org/page.php?page=download

3. Get the necessary IWAD. These WADs use DooM 2, so get a copy of doom2.wad. Here's where you can (legally) get DooM 2: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2300/DOOM_II/

4. For the sake of convenience, I keep all of these files in one folder. I recommend you do the same.

Lemme know if this helped. Feel free to ask any questions.

@Killerratte It works. Thanks a lot!
