Map by map info:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map01 (On Hell's Horizion)
Author: Robert Babor (Ship by Devon West)
Year Created: Started in 1997, revamped on and off until 2002
  Ship made in 2004
MIDI: 
Comments: Went through several redesigns, was never finished to
  expectations and probably never will. The boat is from
  an old DM map of Devon's that he remade to be the start
  of a new version of 'Baron Streets'.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map02 (The Forsaken)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1996
MIDI: Original music by Slayer
Comments: This level is super outdated, and it shows, the gameplay
  remains decent though. Did a quick re-texture though.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map03 (The Nether World)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1996
MIDI: 
Comments: Again another old old level, some will call it filler,
  I call it nostalgic.. but yeah, it's crap :P
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map04 (Brickyard)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: Started in 1997, was currently under revamping
MIDI: Doom2
Comments: Again never finished.. had an original revamp done
  by Brad Spencer, but basically everything he did was
  completely revamped again.. gah, being a
  perfectionist sucks..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map05 (The Mines of Dismay)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1997
MIDI: Ultimate Doom
Comments: Theme.. there is none, but it's a decent level for
  it's age.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map06 (Conquest)
Author: Devon West (Great 'last second' revamp by Chris Hansen!)
Year Created: 1996, revamped by the almighty speed revamp master in 2004
MIDI: Ultimate Doom
Comments, Devon: The idea started off good enough, but lost it quickly.
  Outdated and ugly.
Comments, Chris: Ugly, yeah. Potential, hell yeah! This level has some
  interesting layouts and I love the way it varies in
  architecure. I also happen to love the way it reeks
  of classic Doom atmosphere! I just dressed it up a
    little and corrected a few no-no's. I would have loved
  to have spent more time on this one...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map07 (Death's Door)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1996
MIDI: 
Comments: Challenging gameplay, that is, if you don't jump on
  the demons.. again old and never revamped.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map08 (Stellar Phenomenon)
Author: Brad Spencer (original by Devon West)
Year Created: Started in 1997 by Devon West, revamped by Brad in
  2003
MIDI: 
Comments, Devon: One of the happiest revamps of any map in Hellcore. Way
  back when a wee lad, this was one of my best and most
  enjoyable maps. Of course current day standards changed
  along with my skill, so this map got old and decrepit.
  I absolutely love what Brad did to it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map09 (Bloodlust)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1997
MIDI: 
Comments: First time I ran into visplane problems. Fun gameplay
  but the effects and visuals are garbage compared to what
  I can do now.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map10 (Conquest)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: 
Comments: Rubbish
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map11 (Jaded)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: 
Comments: You may see a revamp of this map that will blow you
  away, that is if i ever get around to making it...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map12 (Too Quiet)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: Original Music by Slayer
Comments: Shitty level enjoy!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map13 (The Wicked)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1996
MIDI: Ultimate Doom
Comments: Extremely old map, but for it's age, quite nice..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map14 (Circle of Trinity)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1996
MIDI: 
Comments: Probably the second level I ever made. It was a fun
  map... 8 years ago.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map15 (Underworld)
Author: Chris Hansen (original by Robert Babor)
Year Created: Started in 1998 by Robert Babor, revamped by Chris
  Hansen in 2002
MIDI: 
Comments, Chris: I fell for this one immediately! Intrigueing layout
  and an evil action packed gameplay with a good
  and very playable way of leading the player around!
  I used a lot of my experiences from my Flay The Obscene
  series in this one and just tried to make it look like
  a very nasty place. Clean and polished with a few new
  textures and a lot of baddies!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map16 (Tryx 'n Traps)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 2002
MIDI: Blood
Comments: First map I made when I became a 'good' wadauthor. Still
  not happy with it but it's better than my older maps.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map17 (Packaging/Shipping)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: Ultimate Doom
Comments: You'll hate me for making this monster sized map. It
  will take over an hour to beat.. This map was the first
  to push doom2 far past it's limits and push hellcore
  into the realm of source ports and limitless viseplanes.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map18 (Sect of Power)
Author: Brad Spencer
Year Created: 2003
MIDI: 
Comments, Darkfyre: I can't find Brad, so I'll do the honor of commenting here.
  This, I believe, was the first map to be completed for Hellcore.
  An incredibly nostalgic doom1'ish map. It's big, it's appealing
  it's fun and a great challenge. Hope you folks enjoy it!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map19 (Baron Streets)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: Unknown midi
Comments: I always wanted to make a city map. This was the next map
  I was going to remake to look realistic to the last detail,
  but I havn't had the time. A damn shame really, I still
  have never played a realistic 'city' doom map. Maybe someday.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map20 (Central Docking)
Author: Devon West / Some rework by Albert Sposito
Year Created: 1999
MIDI: Strife
Comments, Devon: I felt like making a space station. Had some good ideas but
  this map lacks a lot of detail to todays standards.
Comments, Ismaele: Of course this map was very good in the concept and had a
  great potential. I improved somethings, adding some more
  little details to get a nice ambience and a decent graphic.
  Since I couldn't reach high results with the previous layout,
  I thought to remake it, but school forced me to stop my work.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map21 (Toxic Waste Treatment Centre)
Author: Albert Sposito
Year Created: 2003
MIDI: 
Comments: It is my first and only attempt to make a level
  with a sort of urban theme. It presents challenging
  difficulty, fun gameplay and nice graphics.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map22 (Vestibule of War)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 2001
MIDI: Blood
Comments: Unfinished, threw in crazy gameplay for the Hell of it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map23 (Vestibule of Plague)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 2001
MIDI: Blood 
Comments: Last map I made before I became a decent author. This is
  when I started sticking to themes and better texturing.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map24 (Parasite Dawn)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 2004
MIDI: Resident Evil
Comments: Last map I made for Hellcore. Some areas need work, but all
  in all I'm happy with it. The difficulty was set to be map03.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map25 (Tribulation)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: Hexen
Comments: Who loves strobing lights and viles? Again, good for it's
  time, crap today.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map26 (Sheer Chaos)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1995
MIDI: 
Comments: The map that started it all, Ah yes this was the very
  first doom map I made.. And the map that made me 
  decide to make a 32 level megawad.. oh god what a 
  mistake that was heh. Anyway, lack of detail, blocky,
  triangle corridors and poorly placed monsters will 
  have you cringing and wondering why you even downloaded
  Hellcore in the first place. Bah to hell with you all!
  I know it sucks, you know it sucks, there's always idclev.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map27 (UAC Compound)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1995
MIDI: 
Comments: The second level I ever created. Again you will love to 
  hate it. The gameplay is so brutal, that you will be 
  running down 64x64 corridors wondering where to go next,
  only to find out that you had to hit a switch on the
  opposite end of the map over and over again.. Please
  don't hate me, hate my maps instead.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map28 (Massacre)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: Started in 1996, was currently under revamping
MIDI: Doom2
Comments: Enjoyable gameplay for it's time. Unfortunately I lost
  the revamped version of this map, and frankly havn't felt
  like redoing it. Atleast I salvaged part of the beginning.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map29 (Nightmare's Requiem)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 2003
MIDI: Freddy's theme
Comments: First map I ever made, so it was only suiting I should
  remake it to my current standards. Gameplay and enemies
  need work, but it's still playable and fun if you like
   challenges. What 'I' think are some nice visuals.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map30 (Hellcore)
Author: Robert Babor
Year Created: 1999
MIDI: 
Comments: Crappy boss level made in literaly 10 minutes, was not meant to be
  even in the wad, just was for fun. However it looks like it's
  gonna be included anyway, so enjoy this POS... and yes it is beatable.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map31 (Ample Prey)
Author: Devon West
Year Created: 1998
MIDI: Ultimate Doom
Comments: I just wanted to make a hard yet fun map. Looks terrible
  but I still find it fun to play... sort of...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Level: Map32 (Seclusion 'D') *ZDoom only*
Author: Robert Babor & Devon West
Year Created: 2004
MP3: Max Payne
Comments, Darkfyre: The last level me and Fusion were working on. Unfinished, glitches
  everywhere, no exit, but still rather appealing I think. This entire
  map is drawn out and scripted on paper tacked to my bulletin board, it's
  a shame it never got finished... You must idclev to get to this map.

Misc. Author Info       : Yes I'm the one responsible for all this madness.. 
  Back in 95', i decided to create a level (level 26)..
  then i thought, "wouldn't it be cool if the level's
  connected?". (At the time, i had never seen a set of 
  levels do this) Anyway, after level 26 was done, i 
  whipped up level 27, and connected the exits.. 
  Hellcore was born. I told Darkfyre about my plan 
  and he was instantly interested in creating a megawad..
  Unfortunately we didn't continue to connect maps as 
  most of the maps had 0 planning to them initially.. 
  until we became more advanced.. Anyway,
  i hope you enjoy this old relic, as we all spent
  years making it. All of my levels were never completed;
  and i believe it's due to my biggest flaw, perfectionism.
  I'm rarely happy with levels i produce, as i always have
  much bigger ambitions for them.. Again Enjoy!

Misc. Author Info       : Hellcore was created roughly the same time I got into editing.
  Since it's start I've fallen in love with editing, and made
  levels for Duke3d, Half-life, Hexen and more. However they
  also all fell in the 'never released' file because I'm too much
  of a damn perfectionist. It pains me to see this being unfinished,
  but atleast somebody somewhere will go through it and enjoy playing
  my levels. My thanks goes to the team who worked hard on contributing
  to the project, some of the most talented minds in the doom
  community, and I'm flattered I was able to work with them.

Misc. Author Info       : Brad is MIA, so I shall give a quick low-down on the legend.
  At a time when I had fallen away from editing, and Fusion later
  too, it was Brad who kept the project going. When he finished
  map18 and I saw it, the nostalgia brought me right back to
  good 'ol Hellcore. I quickly hopped back to the helm and basically
  yelled at people for not making enough maps ;) Yes, I am a
  hypocrite. Nonetheless, if not for Brad, there wouldn't be any
  'decent' levels in here at all, and the project probably would've
  died right then and there with ugly 1996 maps. Cheers mate!

  I took part in this project, I really hoped to contribute in
  creating a good .WAD. Unfortunately, in spite of my efforts, the
  project came to a deadlock and this really displeased me. Although
  I think that it could have been completed, if every member of the
  team had devoted himself to it, I must thank the bosses (Fusion and
  Darkfyre) for the great occasion they gave me and all the team for
  the very useful experience, both in real life and Doom editing.
  Thank you for all! =)
