Arch-Vile Jump
Description
You ever used the vertical boost of an Arch-Vile-Attack? It doesn't matter if you are a speedrunner or a from time to time player. With some time getting into this, this will make fun for each kind of player. The aim of this wad is to complete the maps by especially using Arch-Vile-Jumps, which describes the vertical boost of an Arch-Vile-Attack, and Rocket-Jumps without getting killed. In map32 you also have to kill monsters because they will distract you from jumping through the map.

General Inspiration: About 2 years ago I started to edit a copy of DooM2 to
put tricks with Arch-Vile Jumps (AVJ) in it. I made it for myself and I liked
it more and more. So after 1 year of collecting ideas for a whole selfmade WAD
I started to create this avj.wad.
The most important reason why I took doom2.wad as a mapping inspiration for
avj.wad is because I havn't found another wad which made so much fun for me.

Inspiration             : DooM2 map30
Comments                : The idea for this map came because of the possibility
                          to hit John Romero in DooM2 map30 with a double AVJ
                          at the highest level.
    

Map31
Level name              : Entrance to Heaven
Inspiration             : None specific
Comments                : Only used "newer" features of the DooM2 engine like
                          OS bridge in map31 and 32 because they are optional
                          to play through the wad.
    

Map32
Level name              : Masterpiece
Inspiration             : None specific
Comments                : Map32, Masterpiece, I called this map Masterpiece
                          because I am convinced that this map is the best one
                          I have ever made and I will not create a better one.
                          This map is the one which took by far the most effort
                          I put into. The Build-Time is 4 months.
                          So it took about the half of this whole wad, well,
                          it even has more sectors than all the other maps
                          together :). The basic idea was to create 31 small
                          maps and one really big, which is also more detailed.
                          The reason for this idea is that I am not able to
                          create 32 such big maps, so I reduced it to a single        
                          one.
                          At the beginning of creating this map I was
                          developing the Double-Ceiling-Trick which I call the
                          feature of the doom2-engine which allows the
                          appearance of a sector to have two ceilings.
                          After knowing a lot pros and cons of this method I
                          started to build the outside of the main building
                          with this Double-Ceiling-Trick. After hours of
                          mapping I recognized that the limitations of doom2.exe
                          forces me to reduce details in big areas, especially
                          in outside regions.
                          After getting this runnable with doom2.exe I planned
                          the whole map. After that I started with the start,
                          continued with the main building (first yel key)
                          and finished it with the two outside areas at the
                          back of the building.
                          After that I decidet to design the following parts
                          earthy and dark with several bright areas. I continued
                          this concept till the end, where I put a huge open
                          area for the final chellange of this map.
                          During the whole map I tried to make it very varied,
                          so you have to do a lot of AVJs an RJs combined with
                          several parts in which you have to think how you could
                          continue. For example the the big tower in the left
                          area at the back of the building was designed to let
                          the player think, which route he can and should take
                          to solve this part. Especially this little part shows
                          another aspect which was important for me. The fact
                          that the player can choose a way how he will pass this
                          map. There is always not only one way to go on, there
                          are a lot of routes through this map, some are more
                          obvious and some are less abvious.
                          This map is and was always at the limitation of
                          doom2.exe. During the development of this map I had
                          to deleat about 500 sectors that it was playable with
                          doom2.exe. There were always parts in which you can
                          see too much lines for the original engine, so I had
                          to reduce them.
                          In general I also recognized that doom2.exe has a
                          overall limitation of "stuff" in the map like things
                          and sectors. This limitation was reached with about
                          2000 sectors and appeared with e.g. impassable lines
                          through which the player was able to go, just like
                          with "idclip".
                          After solving all those limiltation problems I tested
                          the map a lot in Single Player and Multiplayer
                          (MP with ZDaemon). Whit those tests I fixed about 500
                          "bugs" which I and the betatesters thought that should
                          be changed.
                          You might think now why I have not just made the map
                          much smaller, so I have not all those limitation
                          problems. You also might think that why it is so
                          important that this wad/map is runnable with doom2,
                          all other source ports of doom2 will not have any
                          problems launching this map.
                          Well, first I want to clarify that I usually use
                          doom2.exe when I play Singe Player. I could not get
                          detached from it. Also I like speedrunning maps with
                          doom2.exe, some really cool doom2-features like
                          glinches through 32-gabs are not possible with
                          a lot of source ports. The reason why I did not want
                          to make the map smaller is that I wanted to have a
                          very long map in this wad, so that there is the
                          kind of speedrunning which has not the aim to run
                          the map perfectly, but to survive, the time does not
                          matter at the first times. Well, with doom2.exe you
                          also do not see your time at the end when you need
                          more than 1 hour, it will just say you suck ;), but
                          you don't :). Just watch the demo with for example
                          prboom-plus, there you also can leap the whole demo
  and you can see your actual time.
                          Have fun playing and running it :D!
