Awooca isn't even a real word! That's cheating!

Lol

 

This would have been an interesting application of WadC!

 

actually probably Liquorice since you could ingest a dictionary directly which WadC could not

That's pretty sweet.   Also, here's a useful texture made of lettering from the load of Doom Art Romero released:

I have linedefs divided into 16 length sections with 24 tall surfaces and offset each character appropriately.

This is great :)

 

You can get a rough F out of the A, though it's definitely not as nice looking as other letters.

If you let yourself use y- offsets you can use the bottom part of the U to make it a bit nicer, as well as for some more letters, but I get the appeal of doing it with x-offsets only. The shading between segments is off, so again still not quite as nice looking.

edit: I see doom_txt already had an F. I guess if you go one column at a time you could improve it still...

K and X. You could probably adapt the X into an H.

In game UAC/Hellfitti has become a reality.

 

Now it would be fun if Hellspawn like the Imp or Grunt start spraying their ''mark/tag'' everywhere around a map. Something like ''Henry The Hellspawn was here'' or ''Ingrid the Imp is AASTINKY!''

 

This raises some interesting questions though:

  • Would hellspawn be British, like Fraggle?
  • How would Imp's spray their words around the wall if all they can do is launch fireballs?

TLDR:

I am so confused by this contraption.

This is a good example of the web / darkweb disconnect, as @Scuba Steve on Discord has since figured out all 26 letters and some punctuation to boot.

 

all-letters.zip

 

So I did the obvious thing and made a WAD with (most of) the Navy Seal copypasta.

 

 

navyseal.wad.zip

 

There is another copypasta I am aware of but I will leave it as an exercise for the reader.

Couldn't you make an "N" or "M" (or any other letter which requires a single middle stroke) by abusing 1-px wide textures and playing with Y-offsetting the bottom, middle part of the letter "U"?

Edit: after watching that video, this technique could still be used to e.g. make a cleaner 'H' and 'T'.

I shouldn't have done this (especially this late at night) but here's an homage implementation in 60-ish lines of Haskell (using Liquorice)

I can see this being used for easter eggs and things like "Thanks for Playing!"
