There's nothing extreme about it at all. Can't you read?

I thought that you had made a typo and left out the 'e' in "extrme". What does "extrme" mean anyway?

I thought I should ask you, since you're the one who came up with the term.

Skill 4 has a typo (unless it's on purpose).

Doh! I didn't even notice that! Thanks for pointing it out, though you could have been clearer on what you meant. :P

How about difficulties based on music genres?

1 - Easy Listening
2 - Soft Jazz
3 - Techno
4 - Hard Rock
5 - Death Metal

Or based just on Rock/Metal genres

1 - Soft Rock
2 - Hard Rock
3 - Heavy Metal
4 - Power Metal
5 - Death Metal

I kind of keep feeling like there's always too big of a jump between 2-3 or 3-4. (From "Will this hurt?" to "Bruise me a lot" or from "Demons Freak Me Out" to "Hell? I LIVE IN HELL!") I feel like for Doom the names flow more smoothly and have pretty much the same difference of badass-ness (or lack thereof) between them. I don't have any suggestions right now since it's pretty late at night and i have little creativity anyway, but I might have some ideas later.

How about a little less creativity. Nothing is going to get done on this unless at least three of you start drifting towards the same set of names. I still like my suggestion best as it is descriptive and should be tolerable to everyone, but some of the plain ones are usable too.

I think this is pretty good, except that "bruise me a lot" sounds kind of dorky. If you can change that one then I say go with this.

How about "Bring on the pain."? In the meantime, I'll fix that typo on skill 4.

1. Will this hurt?
2. Bruising
3. Bring on the Pain
4. Extreme Carnage
5. Respawn Insanity

This has good graduation, without being overdone.
Last could be "Nightmare Insanity", or "Insanity", or my favorite
"Stuff of Nightmares"

Only need one of the easy names, I prefer "Will this hurt?"
Extrme is going to be someones trademark, somewhere.

No prob. Did you include those medikit/stimpack/berserk sprites that were in there too?

Just plain "Insanity" sounds best to me. The word "gibbitude" desperately needs to be thrown in there somewhere. :D

I can't check this at the moment as I'm out of town, but is the newer stimpack in there? The newest version has 4 green dots around each corner of the green box with the cross in the center. It is in the same wad as the one with the difficulty levels.


I'd prefer that the newest version be in FreeDoom, as opposed to the version without the green corner dots.

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

Taking inspiration from the Doom Comic:
  • GUNS ARE FOR WUSSES
  • I'M COOKING WITH GAS
  • I'M COOKING WITH PLASMA
  • I'VE GOT A HANDFUL OF VERTEBRAE
  • ...AND A HEADFUL OF MAD!!!
Or, if you prefer a more Romero-ish approach:
  • GET THE FUCK OUT, YOU PUSSY!
  • YOU'RE A FUCKING WIMP!
  • I CAN SAY 'FUCK' IN THIS GAME!
  • I'M ABOUT TO MAKE THIS GAME MY BITCH
  • SUCK IT DOWN!
Here's one to cater to the special needs of t3h 1337:
  • SKR1PT K1DD13
  • WTF H4X
  • 1337 H4XX0R
  • T3H H4X 4ND T3H P4WN, J00 FUX0R
  • THY B0X H4X0R34D
And finally, one for the "competitive" ones:
  • Scrubby noob
  • Low ping bastard
  • RL Griefer
  • BFG Spammer
  • Lag h4x0r

Higher difficulties should be labeled with more "scrubby" names as it's the inexperienced players that would most benefit from the more intensive training provided by those difficulties.
