This is not as bloated as the original Chex Quest IWAD. Chex Quest actually has the other few Ultimate Doom levels.

IIRC there used to be a rule that said that you need to have a significant amount of progress toward your project before you would be able to get a project board, but I can't find the topic anymore, maybe they got rid of that rule?


You have to have an Admin create the sub-forum for you, and they will most likely deny you unless there's good progress.

I beg to differ.

Actually, the chex.wad in the compact zip currently available does... I don't know why though.

It's simple: when the developers made CQ, they forgot to delete the DooM leftovers. That's why the other DooM levels are in there.

I actually went to E2M7 and the cyberdemon was invisible and it was hilarious.

Ok, a few things.

1. 75 and ChexMaster are correct. I'm gonna want to see some actual progress on a project before giving a subforum. Especially when newer and younger members are involved. Projects from those two groups tend to end up abandoned more often than not.

2. The real Chex.wad does NOT have any DooM leftovers in it AFAIK. However, On the CD there was another version of Chex.wad, which was a complete Ultimate DooM IWAD with All the DooM graphics removed and the relevant Chex Quest graphics added in. According to a readme file on the CD, this was for Mac users to load into their own copy of DooM so they could play, as Chex.exe was DOS/Windows only. They left the levels in, as DooM would have thrown a fit if it didn't have all the levels present. Why they didn't replace them with dummy levels, I don't know. However, the fact remains that this was an officially licensed giveaway distribution, as far as we are aware. Since the levels are nearly impossible to play without DooM graphics, I don't think it is too much of an issue.
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

Then why have PFUB1, PFUB2, ENDPIC, and END* not been replaced?

Maybe because they did not need to use it.

Wait a minute. Maybe he's using the WAREZ scifience version where all they did was merge doomu.wad and chex.wad. WVL, did you download your chex.wad from a site called Tucows?

No, I downloaded it from http://www.myabandonware.com/game/chex-quest-2e4
EDIT: And no, I did not download DOOM or DOOM II from there

The abadonware version is inferior to the chex3 version you can find in the forum's download pages.

chex3.wad is not chex.wad.

That being said, that Abandonware version does look rather fishy.

It is better to get the real chex.wad instead of abadonware since they may contain viruses.
