Now with the Brutal Doom mod flourishing, it made my original Doom Co-op very fun to play so what did I do? I further increased difficulty of the maps once for the standard Brutalized set but a second time for Hardcore Brutalized. They are both playable with or without Brutal Doom but it increases difficulty twofold or threefold with the mod.
The biggest difference between Brutalized and Hardcore Brutalized is that I fixed up all the unclosed sector errors (courtesy of id that went unnoticed and were extremely minor) and some goof ups of my own (the E2M6 lowering floor HOM near start) when I jacked up the difficulty for Hardcore, on top of additional edits to two later Doom 2 levels.
The final major update will be the "Overkill Edition", which will throw as much as game can without killing your framerate. Don't expect this to be available for a while.
On a side note, playing this with vanilla Doom or Doom 2 is not recommended as there are some linedefs that utilize Boom style line actions so if one must play "pure", use a limit removing port such as Boom/prBoom as the bare minimum.
Note: This is not Brutal Doom exclusive! You can play this with any mod you desire or even without mods!
These are replacement levels only and is not an IWAD, so these cannot be used as an IWAD to circumvent the need for an IWAD to use PWADs.
