WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL PAUL CORFIATIS WEBSITE
4.MAY.14 - Its been a long time since I last updated my site mainly due to a lack of motivation. Anyway, I have updated the entire website with a few fixes and updates, new links, etc. Also in life there are several projects in progress and one of them is writing some music for a Big Hart stage play that will involve skateboarders. It is likely this compilation of music will be released to iTunes and possibly bandcamp later in the year. And yes I am still slowly making Doom maps although not in much of a hurry. My latest Doom project is named "Doomed Space Wars" which was mentioned in my previous update will be an 11 level (9 maps, 2 secret maps) episode for Doom 2 which requires Zdoom set in a Star War-like environment but with Doom enemies and weapons. All the maps will be Zdoom in Hexen format with some new Decorate monsters and a fantastic original mp3 soundtrack of orchestral music. Also included are PSX sound effects, some coloured lighting and reverb in order to create the atmosphere than you are in a giant battle station. The wad will be quite large in size, probably over 50mb. But below is a screenshot from the first map (during early development). Since the date is May 4 I must say to you "May the 4th be with you" - proud to be Pcorf and take care everybody!
29.DEC.13 - Just want to wish everybody a happy new year for 2014 even though I posted this 2 days before the new year. I have released more of my music to iTunes including a new Dripper compilation album named Into The Zone which contains 13 previously unreleased Dripper tracks. Both Nemrac albums are now available on iTunes. I have also begun work on my next Doom project, a yet to be titled Star Wars-themed episode of Boom compatible format levels, a new mp3 format soundtrack of original orchestral songs similar to the music you hear in Star Wars.
23.SEP.13 - Hello. Announcing the release of an all new 32 level single player megawad for Doom 2 named Zone 300. All maps in this fantastic new megawad apart from the super secret level are limited to 300 linedefs and there is also new music included too. The maps feature fast and action packed gameplay and a mixture of linear and non linear levels. Please download and enjoy folks.
23.JUL.13 - Just an update on life in general. I have been busy with various projects and planning to help produce a 15 to 20 CD set for a man who is interested in Astrology so this will be a total of 16-20 hours of vocal recording at the studio (the easy part) and then splitting it all into separate tracks (the hard part). Progress of the 3rd Nemrac album is currently halted because of other things in life and because of lack of ideas with songs. No Doom maps have also been created since the release of Chong and Urban Battle although there are plans in the future for a new episode with Kristian as a successor to WOS. Kristian is also planning to release a new Doom map named the lost temple and his first album Nebula Meltdown: Stardust Chronicles will be released through Suntrip Records within the next few months.
30.MAY.13 - I have released a comedy hip hop/rap album named Bad Kid up 2 No Good. It it available for purchase and digital download on my Bandcamp page. You can listen and buy the album here! - WARNING! - Lots of swearing! ... Lets see what bad things this kid gets up to in 14 all new and unique tracks! ... You can watch the trailer on Youtube here!
11.MAY.13 - With the release of my Dripper and Nemrac albums to Bandcamp. I have Updated my music page. I've also added two more Doom Wads. Jokewads namedChong and The Adventures of Zbub. Both are for Doom 2. Life has been busy and soon I will be releasing a 14 track comedy hip-hop album to bandcamp named Bad Kid: Up 2 No Good. 3rd Nemrac album is progressing slowly and a release date is unknown right at this moment.
29.JAN.13 - Today is my 31st birthday so today I am going to sacrifice my creativity with the announcement of two brand spanking new Doom2 maps. Well actually one of the maps is very very old. Music is progressing well, with the completion of two more NEMRAC songs for the upcoming 3rd NEMRAC album. Last year I completed my certificate 2 course at college ... it was a challenge but I was very proud with my achievement. I have many goals set out for 2013, one of them is to complete my 3rd NEMRAC album in about 6-7 months time and many more. But anyway, my two new levels for Doom 2 can be downloaded beneath and also from My Doom Wads page.
THE GREAT URBAN BATTLE -DOWNLOAD (7.4mb) - REQUIRES A BOOM COMPATIBLE SOURCE PORT
The Great Urban Battle is the largest level for Doom2 I have ever made which is designed for a Boom compatible source port and has Boom features. After a long period of inactivity in Doom level designing I dug out Doom Builder and wanted to make a city level, the goal was to start in a subway, find all 6 keys in the city while battling against the invasion of hellspawn and then exit through an underground dungeon/mine leading to a fortress. Work started in October 2012 and it took almost 4 months alone to make. This vast map is one of the largest ever created for Doom 2 alone with over 1,000 monsters. Its not the most detailed level in the world, detail is slightly above averaged to id's maps. The map contains an all new original and whacky MP3 song for mapinfo ports plus a MIDI version (D_RUNNIN) of the song for non-mapinfo supporting ports. Expect to take well over 1 hour battling in this map, always watch your back and save often. The 18 secret areas are a huge help too. See if you can find them all?
BOTERO'S MANSION - DOWNLOAD (165kb) - LIMIT REMOVING PORT
The first of my 1996 tune-up maps. In July 1996 I made my first ever level for Doom2 in DoomCAD 5.1 which consisted of a big, simple room to room map. It was very poorly designed with typical newbie mistakes. Now over 16 years later I decided to touch up the map in Doom Builder. Botero's Mansion is a bricks and metal map for Doom 2, heavily modified and renovated from my first ever map and uses 100% stock textures. The whole map uses only 1 sector tag. Height variations are minimal in this map with a challenge equal to Doom2 itself. The map should work in Doom2.exe but I recommend a limit removing port as the map is quite detailed and you could possibly get VPO's.
21.SEP.12 - Announcing the release of the 2002 A Doom Odyssey soundtrack. All songs from the game now available for download online thru places such as iTunes, Amazon.com. You can buy the entire soundtrackhere on cdbaby for $14.99 US, that is all 27 level songs + the level complete, intermission and ending theme. Eventually I will release my 2 NEMRAC albums onto cdbaby for digital download and other stuff too. Next week its back to school where I will finish off for the rest of the year and look forward to a creative and active summer.
11.SEP.12 - All levels for Super Mario Bros X: pcorf edition are complete and I am doing the final touch ups and playtesting. This add-on for Super Mario Bros X 1.3 should be ready before the end of the year. I have nearly finished off school and once that is out of the way I can concentrate on music and other tasks in life. Apart from that, just looking forward to a bright future. No more Doom maps completed so far as I have few ideas left among other things.
27JULY.12 - The 10th anniversary edition of 2002 A Doom Odyssey has been released. You can download it here (4.3mb zipped file)
8.JUNE.12 - 2002 A Doom Odyssey 10th anniversary is scheduled for release before the end of August depending on how long it takes but I have made a page for 2002ad10 with screenshots and info. The original Whispers of Satan website from Geocities is back up after a 3 year absence. Life in general, nothing much, just enjoying my holidays and working hard on various projects.
13.MAY.12 - BOOK LAUNCH 1ST YEAR ANNIVERSARY & AND MAJOR UPDATES - This time 1 year ago I launched my first book named my world and have sold almost 100 copies and you can buy it online from this website. It wasn't a huge publication and life has been busy this year with school and other things. I have released nearly all Dripper songs to youtube for your listening enjoyment and also uploaded the entire 2002 A Doom Odyssey soundtrack to youtube. Another inclusion is more examples of my artwork divided into 3 separate pages 2010, 2011 and 2012 and screenshots from my Mario project. Also the 10th year edition of 2002ado is slowly progressing and I need to make one new map (E3M5) for the project and then put it through play testing and then release it. Apart from that life has been slow but I have been motivated and very focussed as I am just concentrating on school and saving up for other things in life.
1.FEB.12 - Hello I am announcing the release of Nemrac's 2nd album, Curiosity Overload. 9 new trance and psytrance songs composed by me throughout 2011. I recently turned 30 years old and this year I will be returning to school again to do more artwork. Also the fully remastered soundtrack for 2002 a DOOM Odyssey is now up on my youtube channel and all levels songs can be heard at - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL86FCD238843D8BC3&feature=mh_lolz - also I have been doing work on my Mario project and various other things like video editing for an arts Tasmania project. Also I am trying to figure how to get an online shop on to my website so people can by my music. But right now its best to contact me if you want to buy a CD from me. Also the goals for this year are to get the 10th year edition of 2002ado completed as well as my Mario game which is progressing very well with 6 of the 9 worlds are all done.
20.NOV.11 - Hello everybody. I'm back with un update on life in general. In fact life has been busy. Will be finishing off school soon for the year but also spent 2 weeks in Wynyard performing a DJ set of Nemrac music which was webcasted live on November 17. On November 30 I will go on an overseas trip to the middle east (not Iraq). Also my Mario project is progressing well with World's 1, 2, 3, 8 and 9 fully complete and I may consider releasing a 3 world demo of the project. With music, my Nemrac - Curiosity Overload album is complete and is scheduled to be released in January 2012 and contains 9 new psychedelic trance tracks composed by me throughout 2011. Also I am working on a 10th anniversary edition of 2002 A Doom Odyssey which will be released next year. This will include improvements to the levels and music in the wad and some new maps to replace older maps. In Fact I have been working on a replacement for E4M1, my first singleplayer map in almost a year and Chris Hansen will contribute a new level in Episode 3. Screenshots of E4M1 are visible below. Also I have been busy working on a 2002ADO soundtrack at the recording studio which will be released on to Youtube next year. I will probably also write new music for Episode 4 for the 10th year edition of 2002ADO so another 9 new MIDI songs.
23.SEP.11 - Paul's Deathmatch has been released. A 32 level DM Megawad of varying themes for Doom 2. You can download it from here at http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=16572 It requires a Boom compatible source port. Although its not the best DM wad in the world I'm sure you will still have fun players.
14.SEP.11 - Hello people. I've just launched a small music mastering business for the mastering for independent Australian musicians who have recorded a mix and want cheap, but good quality mastering. So please go intoPCORF MASTERING for more information and prices starting at $30 per song. Life has been busy. I have almost finished working on Paul's Deathmatch, a DM megawad for Doom 2 which will be released towards the end of the month and I'm starting to work on music mixes for the Big Hart high school project later in the year as mentioned in the previous update. This is my last week of my school holidays before I go back to school on September 19 for 5 more weeks. In December I will probably travel to the middle east for a holiday once school and the Big Hart project is out of the way but its not confirmed yet. Also my new Mario project is slowly progressing but it will probably be a year before its done.
2.SEP.11 - Sorry for not updating in a while but I have just received a government grant and I will play a live gig of my music in November for yet a Big hArt stage play in Wynyard in November. Meanwhile life has been quite busy and next week I am on school holidays so I will look to write a new song to bring my latest Nemrac album towards completion. Work on my Mario project continues to progress but still it is a long way from been completed. I'm also finishing off a Deathmatch megawad for Doom 2 which I have been slowly working on since last year. I also have some paintings up in the Don art expo in Ulverstone.

I will also have CD's for sale and maybe some of my artwork too. Apart from that I've been busy with school (not that enjoyable because of essays) and stuff like that ..... and not really much else. I've also added a new section to this website, Paintings and Artwork with some samples of my artwork done over the last year or so. Take care as always.
8.FEB.11 - Big news as my book named "My World" is going to be published this year, with 200 copies to be printed first run. I have just received a draft copy of the book and have done the final front cover design. Pretty psychedelic, aint it! - Have also worked on a few various personal project. On Australia Day weekend I went to Rainbow Serpent Festival, an electronic music festival near Beaufort, VIC and spent two nights there. It was great to see Shpongle live, a very fulfilling experience. Next week I will be heading back to school again, for 150 hours this year to work on more artwork projects. Also I released a new Doom 1 map for Doom v1.2 or better named Base of Sacraficium you can download it at: http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=16321 - It replaces E3M3. Take care and see you next time.
26.DEC.10 - Apart from buying a newer car and selling my older car last month not much else has progressed. My book, no progress because the person who is the publisher has been ill and I hope he gets better. Finished off my artwork stuff at college about a month ago and going back to do more next year. My doomworld community project named Doom 2: Unleashed has almost 40 levels submitted and will be compiled in the new year. This megawad will be uploaded to the archives in about 3-6 weeks depending on what is happening. I also started work on a new platform based PC game. There will be 9 worlds and about 80-100 levels, each world has a secret level. Its mostly a port of Super Mario Bros 3 to the PC but with 100% original levels but no guarantee on its release just yet. The 2 strong hearts plays at Wynyard High School went along very nicely but its likely my last Big Hart project for a while after working on some remixes. Also in the new year me and a friend are going to work on a small comedy film featuring an Ali G like dude named Dave, a guy from the USA who visits Burnie, Tasmania. I've also made some various other updates to this website. I'm getting a visitor, a psytrance artist from Helsinki, Finland min January so looking forward to seeing him. Happy new year to everybody.
14.OCT.10 - Addition of two new CD's to the music page. First CD is Nemrac: Curiosity Overdrive, with 9 psytrance like songs and some copies have been printed.

You can order these CD's by emailing me (at email@example.com) and purchasing them via direct deposit and they will be sold at my book launch early next year. My doomworld community project for Doom 2 now has a name, Doom 2: Unleashed and 31 levels have been submitted, very pleased with the progress and I have been been composing some of its original MIDI based music. James Paddock has also contributed 4 songs, along with a few songs from other composers. Other things, worked on some remixes for a Big Hart project at Wynyard High School and almost finished my artwork stuff for the year. I have also updated the projects section with the cover art for my upcoming book : My World. I
15.AUG.10 - Life has been pretty busy for me. So what have I been up to?, school and paintings and two of my paintings will be in the Don College art expo starting on 27 August in Ulverstone, TAS. I went to Melbourne a few weeks ago for another film festival and spent most of my time walking around with a very bad cold. Umm before that, me and a friend worked on an ad for a Doritos competition. Umm, worked on a couple of new Doom (2) maps, one for Community Chest 4 named Vulcana 2 and the other for another community project that is a megawad for Plutonia. Had a pretty bad sore throat for a few weeks but that is now gone. I'm also going to remix some songs for a Wynyard High School stage play eventually and might experiment with a song soon before the real stuff begins. I have also designed a few covers for my book and will decide on the final design in a few weeks. Still unsure when my book will be released but will keep you posted. It's pretty damn late and I'm now off to bed - zZzZzZz :D
25.JUN.10 - Time for an update and just to let you all know things have all been good. On June 12-14 I was in Sydney catching up with some friends and went to see a couple of films at the Sydney Film Festival including our film Drive. I was impressed. I have also worked on some abstract oil pastel paintings at college and doing the usual stuff. You can view my paintings on my facebook profile.
But the big announcement is planned release of my latest trance album: Nemrac: Curiosity Overdrive. A 9 track soundtrack of some of my music that will be sold at my book launch and will be available for purchase online via direct deposit. Around 50 copies will be pressed. This CD will feature some of the more recent compositions of my music which includes my latest song Crazy Pig. So I need to start designing the covers for this CD eventually.
I've also been working on a new DOOM 2 level for Doomworld's Community Chest 4 project, screenshots are availablehere. My own untitled community project is now 23 levels done and is progressing very well.
28.MAY.10 - I've released a new Doom level named Deimos Entry. It replaces E2M1 of Doom. You can get it here. School has been progressing good and now its holidays for 2 weeks so I'm heading out to Wynyard to spend some time on my own out there. I'm also heading up to Sydney next month to attend the film festival because our DRIVE documentary will be shown. I have also finished a new song named Crazy Pig for my NEMRAC series which can be heard at "www.mp3.com.au/nemrac5700". But anyway that's about it.
18.MAY.10 - The manuscript for my book has been accepted so I'm looking for release next summer. The Adelaide trip was good. Now that I've gotten back home I got a pretty bad cold and was stuck in bed all weekend. Eventually I'm going to do some further updates to this web site such as add some of my artwork and some other stuff.
4.APR.10 - Just a quick update. I've almost finished working on my book and have gone back to school for art classes twice a week and its been a challenge but apart from that nothing major has changed in my life. I have also almost finished my book. I'll be off to Adelaide on April 29. I will update some new photos of my artwork to this site.
4.MAR.10 - An updated version of my Doom WAD Simply Phobos has been released. Get ithere! - Other things, been working on a new psytrance song which is currently untitled and have been doing more work on my book.
14.FEB.10 - Yo happy valentines day, so all you lovers out there betta check out my latest addition to this site. The new "Photo Gallery" menu. Inside you'll find pics of me and other things.
31.JAN.10 - I have uploaded a Doom2 wad featuring the layout of the house I used to live in, you need Zdoom to run it. Get it here! - Screenshots available on my doom wads page.
29.JAN.10 - Today is my 28th birthday so that's 10,226.78157 Earth days. But lets see how old I'm am currently on the other planets in our solar system. On Mercury I'm 116.2 years old, on Venus 45.5 years old, 28 on Earth, 14.9 years old on Mars, 2.36 years old on the planet Jupiter and 96.7% of a year old on Saturn and would have to live 84 years to celebrate my first birthday on Uranus, a planet more than twice the distance from the sun than Saturn. On Neptune nobody has a chance of celebrating their first birthday because a year on Neptune is equivalent to 165 Earth years and nobody has ever lived past the age of 123 on Earth. Just finished off working on some video clips from the Drive project and not planning to do much so I may start working on a new song eventually.
1.JAN.10 - Just wishing everybody a happy new year and happy new decade. Been taking it fairly easy. I recently wrote a new song named Blue Warrior which is a psychedelic hip hop like chillout like song without any lyrics and currently working on a new psytrance song. Also released an updated version of Whispers of Satan about 2 weeks ago which can be downloaded in my doom wads. Anyway better get going and wish you all the best for 2010 and will see you next time!
16.DEC.09 - A minor update to my Doom 2 megawad Whispers of Satan has just been released. This fixes problems with co-op gameplay in MAP29 plus some minor changes to MAP19. Please gohere to download it. I'm now back at home and I'm planning to work on new some new music over the christmas break along with additional Big Hart stuff that I have to finish off.
12.DEC.09 - Not a great deal has been happening apart from work, will be moving out to Boar Harbour next week. I'm really desperate to write new music and its depressing me in some way. And to my complete surprise "Whispers of Satan" received a Cacoward at Doomworld. I think it earnt it the hard way especially with 3 years of hard work so if you Doomer's haven't downloaded it yet I recommend you do so. Here is the Review:
Whispers of Satan - Paul Corfiatis and Kristian Aro
I like a good variety when selecting my favorite projects. I enjoy modern projects for their creativity and visual appeal, but I still love a good classic mapset. Whispers of Satan is a great classic megawad and, from the community input I read, seemed very well received.
Whispers begins very slow but don't give up. The early maps aren't bad, just plain. As you progress, the maps become more creative and visually appealing. Corfatis and Aro did a really nice job scaling the difficulty. I hate trying to do a casual playthrough of a project on an easy setting only to be swamped by hundreds of chaingunners and revenants. There are some tough challenges on higher difficulty, but a good playthough on easy. While the project didn't originally sport cooperative play, it has since been patched to provide that experience. The authors seemed to get more creative when it came to the hellish themes using sectors and architecture to put together some unique stretched skin. Whispers' other nice addition is optional ZDoom play. There are 3 bonus maps for ZDoom, but the project is entirely playable in any Boom compatible source port for the vanilla lovers among you.
Even when Minesweeper can be created through ZDoom ACS and GZDoom can handle 3D floors, there is always room for a classic megawad. - Scuba Steve.
28.NOV.09 - The 2009 Australian Deal or No Deal TV game show stats are now available so go here to see them if you're interested. I've been back out at Wynyard working on more video edits for Big Hart's DRIVE website. I will continue to be working out at Wynyard for a few more weeks before summer holidays. The Drive documentary is all finished and out of the way.
16.NOV.09 - I've released a new Doom 2 level named Processing Bunker (screenshots below) which is a dark and haunted underground base. You can download ithere! - I've also corrected a few spelling mistakes on this website. I am back home with an easier week before I return to Wynyard next Monday to finish off my work with Drive. Look out for it on ABC1 next year.
8.NOV.09 - Hello yet again. Well I'm back at home now for a couple of weeks. I've been doing work out at Wynyard on Drive's webisodes which is pretty boring and uninspiring, but worth it. I have also done some musical work for the documentary. Work on my new Doom 2 map has slowly progressed, I'm in no hurry to release it. Next week I'm going for two trips out to Wynyard in my trusty old car for more sound editing and stuff like that. Apart from the nothing major has happened such as winning the lottery or breaking my arm.
25.OCT.09 - Hello just dropping in to tell you that my first week in Wynyard was a learning experience. I spent 5 days working on stuff for the Drive website. I am a bit disappointed because I thought I really struggled below my abilities mainly because I am learning how to use programs I haven't used before. What frustrates me is trying to battle the limitations of these programs. But this week I hope to get some stuff finished off. What I would really like to do is some work on the sound edit but that hasn't come yet so yeah I felt like I was kind of tricked but that's tough luck. I am also slowly working on a new Doom 2 map, that was originally going to be for Whispers of Satan but I cancelled the update (mentioned below) so this new map will be released as a stand alone level for Boom compatible ports. The map will be named Processing Bunker and will be set in a dark and dimly lit underground base which will haunt you. I will continue to make the occasional Doom (2) level here and there but have much less time for it. Anyway I'm now off for a good walk. Summer is almost here down in the southern hemisphere of our not so alone in the universe planet.
9.OCT.09 - I've made some updates to this site. Changed the "Downloads" page to "Other Stuff" (I think this makes more sense) and added some various content here and there. I move out to Wynyard in about a week to start work on my sound editing job for Big Hart's Drive project. (a documentary that will be shown on TV next year) - I've also been slowly working on a new map and bug fixes for the update of Whispers of Satan. A recently release Doom 2 megawad.
24.SEP.09 - Updated "My Music" with some Audio CD's I have produced over the years and various little fixes and edits.
22.SEP.09 - Added the rest of the screenshots to the Doom Wads section. Plus added more info to the other sections and fixed up a few minor problems.
22.SEP.09 - The Paul Corfiatis website is launched. Due to the upcoming closure of Geocities I have designed an all new website. This is a combination of Paul's Doom Page, the long out of date Pcorfmania and other things. Here you can download my wads, midi files, purchase my music, find out what's happening and many other things.
