Why did no one play my map? July 4, 2012, 12:00 am
Was it because I suddenly showed up and released a map when we already have thousands of other people doing the same thing and people are exhausted of playing new maps?

Or was it because they didn't even see my thread?

Or maybe they saw my thread and ignored it? But why would they ignore it? Exhausted? Jealousy? Or perhaps they expect a little "give and take" where I give reviews of their maps first before I take (ask) for reviews of my map?

Or maybe people are on vacation? However, I see few other new maps (threads) since mine and seen other people (forum regulars) playing those but they didn't play mine. So, what's up with that?

Does anyone even see this? June 17, 2012, 11:09 am
Am I blogging to myself, or anyone actually browse this hidden forum?

Hello, I'm arkore May 23, 2012, 10:38 am
I'm a long time gamer, and I remember--as a kid--going over to my buddies place and he had Doom on his computer. We played it together. I got it on my machine as well.

I was pretty good with the keyboard that I could tap keys to get partial movement--so, whenever my friend approached the zig-zig pathway in the pool of slime on E1M1, I would jump in and say "here, let me do it, I'm good at this!", and got through the path without overstepping into the slime.

Quite an experience.

Anyways, when I learned about creating levels, I was excited. I always liked games where I could create the levels. I remember games like--well, I don't remember the name, but it was for C64 and it had a christmas theme, and I believe a jetpack. Well, that game had an editor for making levels that I played with. Also the Excite Bike game for NES, had level editor. Also there was a racing game, RC-PRO AM? for Snes, where you could create tracks, ramps, etc.

Anyways, I made a couple of test levels, and I used to store all my stuff in a folder called Z.

One day I installed a game called "Zed", and it forced installed to c:\Z\, and I couldn't get the game to work, so without thinking twice about it, I deleted the whole Z folder, which deleted all my stuff.

Anyways, I've had the sudden inspiration of getting back into Doom because I've had my fill of Q3 now, and it only seems logical to go backwards to the games I already put time into and am familiar with.

So, Doom, here I come.

I used to use DCK for DOS.

But now, I found Doom Builder, and it's quite nice. I already have my started room built with some enemies, ammo, light detailing, wall detailing, etc.
