PNY GTX 980ti or Zotac GTX 1060 6gb mini? January 17, 2017, 5:03 pm
Which one should I go with next year? I really like how the 980ti looks in terms of design and performance stats. If you wanna suggest a different 1060 6gb GPU, go ahead. The Zotac isn't fair competition I suppose.

EDIT: forgot to mention this is a planned upgrade for next Christmas.

Ok so apparently there's a new keyswitch coming out for mechanical keyboards January 17, 2017, 5:32 am
Basically here's what it is:

It's a version of Cherry MX which is supposed to be quiet and not super noisy, which is actually a big thing for these kinds of keyboards if you think about it. I myself am glad for this type of thing to be coming out.

I'm surprised that name has not been taken till now. It's the organization that founded OpenGL, of what many sourceports and games use. Just sayin'. :D

Am I sexist? January 15, 2017, 8:40 pm
One of the problems that have been conflicting with me is whether or not I'm a little bit sexist, I've asked people before but I usually feel like I get biased responses or somewhat dishonest "Your not sexist" responses.

First off, I have no problem with women having rights and jobs traditionally associated with men, I really dont care if a woman wants to become a mechanic or a doctor.

Now that I got that out of the way, I have very old fashion views and in a family I see the man as the one who works and gets the money, and I see the woman as the one who does the cleaning and the cooking around the house and takes care of the children while the man is off at work. My reasoning to my views is because these gender rolls have been like this throughout history and I dont really understand why people consider such views sexist by them self.

So do you think I'm sexist or not?

Make my website weird! January 15, 2017, 7:17 pm
ever wanted full permission to write the weirdest things on my website's new cbox without them getting deleted?

I just want it to fill the screen and now all be me. Plus this could be entertaining.

I have now been on Doomworld for over 10 years! January 14, 2017, 10:23 am
Holy shit I just realized this. Damn this makes me feel OLD :( I can't even imagine what the original site members must feel like now :/

How long have you been on Doomworld?

I see there are new members. January 13, 2017, 6:04 pm
I thought that was interesting. As soon as I saw doomrulez new account I knew it was him, Why would you use the same thumbnail on a new account when you've been banned? silly.

I see ender finally got that custom title he wanted, it's fitting. I'm closing on my new house this wednesday, I'm excited. My father in law oddly ditched his expensive pc because it's not working anymore, its a nice alienware desktop, I'm going to fix it up for my wife.

How've ya'll been?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy] (Bilingual)

Life of Pi - Collector's Edition [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Bilingual)

[QUOTE]Hello. I just received The Life of Pi 3 disc collectors edition. Unfortunately, it only contained one of the three discs (the 3D blu ray) along with a written explanation that the other 2 discs were not included. This was not indicated at any stage during the ordering process. Since the item was not as described, please indicate how I may receive a full refund. Thank you.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]As this was at one time a rental product the discs were separated so that both discs could be rented separately. We stated this in our product disclaimer on Amazon as follows:

"FULLY GUARANTEED! 3D BLU-RAY DISC ONLY – BLU-RAY AND DVD DISCS NOT INCLUDED. Previously viewed rental product, all discs cleaned and checked for playability. Cases or UPC’s may not be exactly as shown. Cases and discs MAY have rental label(s) attached. Purchase is for feature disc only, all secondary discs, bonus features and/or digital copies may not be included."

This disclaimer can be seen in the Condition column on the same screen used to "add to cart". This was also reflected in the price, at $13.99, I suspect when you receive your copy of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, you will have the same concerns, this again would be reflected in the $8.00 price point.

That said, we do not want unhappy customers, so if you would return the movies to us (you should be able to use the same package and just mark it "return to sender") once received, we will be happy to refund you the amount of the products, which in this case would be $21.99. Thank you and please acknowledge if you will be returning these two items.


[QUOTE]Hello and thanks for your response. However I'm not quite sure you understand. I did not make any mistake on my part. The listing is clearly for the 3-disc collector's set. You admitted to intentionally sending me the collection with missing discs, which is a serious violation of Amazon's rules. You also admitted that the Planet of the Apes movie will also have a missing disc. I see no reason why I should go to the cost or inconvenience of returning the item due to a mistake on your part. Please go ahead and refund me the total cost of both items, plus the original shipping cost, which comes to a total of $28.97. If you do this then I will happy and there will be no further problems. I would also suggest that you review your listings to make sure to remove any items that do not comply with Amazon's selling rules, as I buy a lot of 3D movies and I would hate to have to inconvenience you with this again. Thanks and have a great day.[/QUOTE]


We are writing to confirm that we have processed your refund in the amount of CDN$ 28.97 for your Order 701-8312977-3711417 from --------------.[/QUOTE]

The Icon Of Sin Scared The Crap Out Of Me When I Was Little January 12, 2017, 10:39 pm
This might appeal to some who have read some of my posts on why I enjoy IoS maps and how I hope for more monster spawner maps - even if they aren't necessarily ones with a wall.

TL;DR: I played god mode when I was little, and I reached the IoS which killed me by telefragging and I got scared. Eventually, I became interested in this telefragging mechanic which is almost never used in game except in IoS fights.

When I was very little, maybe 5, 6, or 7, I played DOOM in the mid 90s. I was afraid of my character dying (as well as the Demon's bite sound) back then. So I figured out, and played with God Mode on. I beat DOOM at my uncle's house in Florida.

Next came DOOM 2. Yet again I used god mode and made it through the levels and then IT happened. I hit the dreaded Map 30. I did not know what to expect or what to do. The monster made it's sound which to me sounds like gorrrrrrr rehhhh oooo si, jim'bre selve-tay d'je ooze (and yes, I know what the actual sound is).

The skulls started appearing out of the monsters head, packed with the unholy essence of a demonspawn, eventually turning into a full-fledged demon upon reaching it's destination. As the essence turned into a full-fledged demon, I kept shooting them down, IDFA'ing if ammo ran out. At the time, I thought the skulls would stop and the creature would have a shootable weak point show up - or the wall was shootable itself.

But then IT happened. Despite having god mode on, I suddenly died. The screen was red. I was horrified. I screamed in terror. I did not know how I died. My character was lying on the ground; his guts being sprawled throughout the deepest depths of hell. I suddenly learned about this monster's ability to kill my God mode character; one of it's skulls landed right on top of where I stood. I was telefragged. It was horrifying.

As I got older, I started becoming interested in the telefragging mechanics which has the power to kill a god mode character - the only other exception is damaging floors encountered in E1M8 but those finish the level.In the original DOOM series, the only place this mechanic is encountered is the last level of DOOM 2. As a result of my experiences when I was little, I enjoy playing the IoS maps which always bring up those memories.

I also wonder if it's possible if there could be a way this mechanic could be used without the icon of sin. The interesting aspect is the not knowing when you're up and *BOOM*, death by telefrag. As a programmer, I know it can happen via a simple script. But I'm more interested in if a map could be designed in such a way that it relies on telefragging to be a good map - maybe in the way of suspense.

Recommend me some games for the Steam Controller January 12, 2017, 9:36 pm
Anyone that owns this thing knows there's a lot going on for it. I don't want to get into a discussion about the Steam Controller itself (thousands of those elsewhere, shoo), but what games do my fellow hardware owners recommend to play, and with what configurations? So far I've only played Typing of The Dead and Half Life, which both work amazingly. I have about $50 to spend on Steam, a beefy rig, as well as already having about 300 games in my library.
