Crusades: An Unholy War is a 9 level Ultimate Doom PWAD in episode four style made by Richard Wiles. It replaces maps E4M1-E4M9.


Built-in demos[edit]

This WAD features a single built-in demo. It requires Ultimate Doom v1.9 to be viewed. The demo level is:

Demo Level Skill Tics Length

Despite the wad replacing Thy Flesh Consumed, its level title graphics and intermission screen background replace those of the first episode, Knee-Deep in the Dead. This is a workaround for a bug in Doom95, one of the two source ports with which this wad was tested (the other being ZDoom 1.17)[1], in which the game would incorrectly display the first episode's intermission screen instead of the fourth's. The wad also uses blank graphics for Knee-Deep in the Dead's intermission animations to disguise this. As a result, Crusades' intermission will display incorrectly in any source port other than Doom95.
