Eternity (WAD)

From DoomWiki.org

This article is about the level set. For other uses, see Eternity.

Eternity (ETERNITY.WAD) is a Doom episode replacement mod of eight levels, created by Bjorn Hermans and Holger Nathrath. It is a sequel to Serenity and was subsequently followed by Infinity, the third WAD in the series. As part of their 10 Years of Doom feature, Doomworld named it one of the ten best WADs of 1994.

The PWAD includes a music track for each map, as well as a few extra graphics such as an oversize stained glass texture with a bird image, and an orange sky for the intermissions (taken from the stock E3 ending screen).

Version 1.1 of Eternity was released November 7, 1994. It also appeared on Maximum Doom as ETERNIT2.WAD and ETRNITY2.WAD.

The levels spell S-E-R-E-N-I-T-Y, that is, level E2M1 has the letter S, E2M2 has the letter E and so on, with E2M8 having all of them.

Bugs[edit]

E2M3's music track causes a crash when used with Doom v1.666. Because of this, most of the replacement music is collected in a separate file, ETERMUS.WAD, so that it need not be loaded to play the episode. (The new intro and intermission tracks are contained in the main WAD.)
