I feel justified yet disgusted with myself at the same time

One thing I was wondering about, we are still using id's names for the difficulty levels (like Ultra-Violence, and Nightmare!, etc.). How are we in the right to be using these titles? Perhaps we should name these "Skill X" with a number in place of X. Or maybe "Very easy, easy, normal, hard, very hard"?

What do you guys think?

Something creative will be awesome. "Skill 4" or "Hard" is too simple.

Everyone post up some new ideas!

Here's an old example, the last two.

Why don't I have a custom title by now?!

How about something like...

Please don't hurt me! - or - Will this hurt?
Shaken and stirred
Battered and bruised
Blood and gore
Certain death Deathwish

Edit - Changed my mind about the first and last ones.

• F—ING CASUALS
• I'M CHILDREN
• HEY! THAT GUY HAS A GUN!
• COOL PEOPLE ONLY
• HARDCORE OWNAGE

I think this is probably unnecessary but if someone wants to go and spend an hour copypasting letters who am I to stop him? ;-)

Incidentally, the fonts are here: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/fr...cs/ajapted/font

I second "Will this hurt?" and "Deathwish" from GreyGhost.

A few others off the top of my head, in no particular order:
  • Where is everybody?
  • Broken bones
  • Blood on the walls
  • Scarred for life
  • Why me?

If only for the few images required here, it might be more trouble than it's worth, but there is some decent software out there to save time with things like this.

I've personally used this freeware program for a lot of bitmap font stuff before. Setting up new fonts for it isn't hard, as you just have to put the images in a long row seperated by single pixels in the corners.

Here's an example file that I tossed together in a few minutes (based on font_red_15.png), which works pretty well with the program.

Need to avoid cute (it is only cute the first 3 or 4 times you see it), trite (cute sayings that have already spoiled), phrases from movies (commercialized cute and trite, and copyrighted), obnoxious (annoying right from the first viewing), insulting (a special kind of obnoxious),
etc ..

I could live with the easy .. hard.
Mostly out of fear of what you might choose, I offer these...

1. Basic Training
2. Grunt work
3. Heavy weapons needed
4. Maximum Carnage
5. Stuff of nightmares


Nightmare mode is mentioned in docs as a special mode, and in many net comments. Make the name too unique and the users will not recognize to what the docs refer.
Den of Nightmares
Repeating Nightmare
Never-ending Nightmare
Endless Nightmare

Nice try, but there's still a trademark issue. What surprises me is that it has nothing to do with Microsoft or Zenimax.
