Will TeamTNT ever be reunited with its remaining members?

you need a team of TNT lovers to help you out ;)
I know quite a few who would totally love to help.
Count me in, already :)

After Ty Halderman, Chris Couleur became the de facto project manager. I will send him an email and direct him to this thread. Perhaps he can get something going that is more meaningful than wistful email exchanges between him and me.

 

[EDIT: I've sent Chris an email and directed him to this thread. He might be able to stir up enough interest to get this sleeping beast moving again.]

I've got a lot of interest in making music for TeamTNT. It would be a massive honor.

I do wish we could've seen what would have become of Boom or OGRE. The former never got past Phase I.

I'm fairly sure if 'proff' never named his version prboom and just carried on the changes as Boom 2.xx etc..  we would have had a Boom+ Instead of a prboom+ but probably with the same extended feature set (MBF support etc..).  But yes, where would it have gone to if TeamTNT didn't abandon it?  We can only guess.

Chris Couleur, one of the original TeamTNT members, has been interested in reviving Eternal Doom IV: Return from Oblivion. He and I correspond via email about this, but neither of us has moved forward with anything. Moreover, with the untimely loss of Espi (arguably the leading creative force of the team) and Ty Halderman, the burden now needs to be shouldered by Chris and me. I have been toying with working on the first hub (which Ty and I had envisioned to be a massive space station), but in the past few years I've had less free time and I have been trying to advance other DooM projects.

Yeah, I figured as much. That is why I was wondering about the possibility of passing the baton to a new team.

 

But even if that were to happen, it would probably become a whole new project anyway. Oh well. :/

Great to see there is some interest but sadly i think it's all over as far as the old group. I only talk with Alex and Adam these days and Rex. Alex is a big no way. Adam made a little map about a year ago but i dont think he would get involved again but maybe. I think he was home for work cause of covid and he had to kill a little time. He was the youngest by far of the group. It seemed like Sverre was around a while back and maybe still is and kind of into it but i never talk with him. There's a slight chance if something got going i could get motivated again. I never did want to quit. We had a pretty good group going after E4 with Paul and DIA back but it all died hard and fast.

Probably not much beyond bug fixes and maintenance honestly; after Boom the majority of the coding effort was focused on OGRE/Ragnarok.

I think Sverre is still pretty active, quite few people here seem interested in making a new phase of TNT to finish Eternal IV. I for one would love to make a map, but who knows. It's all up to you guys.

Truly heartbreaking. But perhaps, a new generation of TeamTNT is in order, under the guidance and wisdom of the old masters, the original TeamTNT members who made such excellent music and maps. Maybe, the stars will align, and, God willing, TeamTNT exists anew. It's your call, however, I am simply theorizing.

i think @theDia is still around, too.
I remember that he worked on some Eternal Doom maps, right?
Doomwiki is down so i can't check.

Also, @rfnagel @JDoyle and @Soundblock are around, so a good number of Eternal Doom and members of Team TNT are around :D
Same @skillsaw and @Kor.

Maybe, if the people mentioned come to an agreement, maybe you can all work on releasing something interesting.
Anything from you, guys, will be always come as a blessing for us ;)

Speaking of old teams, I've decided to start working on a revival of the GothicDM style, if anyone in the thread is interested of course.

Oh great, now I wish I was a part of TeamTNT. I'd've been the only member there to be a literal infant in the 2000s.

It would be nice to see Eternal Doom IV finished in some capacity by new mappers with suitable skill, with the hopeful blessing or better still participation of those members still around. I think it would be a nice tribute to the team's legacy and to the members who have sadly left us like Espi and Ty.

Unfortunately, my interest in creating Doom levels is but pale shadow compared to what it used to be.  It'll be a miracle if I manage to get V2I done.  :)

This should be continued as a community project I think.  Time to get it finished once and for all!  It should also work on DOS Boom as a fitting tribute.

It really should be finished. Although, as touching as it would be to run on Boom 2.02 (or your excellent ReBoom), wasn't Eternal Doom IV a ZDoom wad?

Eternal Doom IV would be an excellent community project. But in the name of God, 25 more maps at the esteem and regard of the original 7 would be really hard.

Skillsaw was technically a member, but I think it was probably more of a deathmatch thing. He'd be like 12 when Evilution was released. Same with Kim, other than the age aspect.

 

It would be cool if someone tried to track them down. While they probably have no interest in Doom mapping these days, it'd be interesting to see what Rand Phares, Drake O'Brien, Robin Patenall, Christopher Buteau, Jim Lovell, and Gary Gosson are all doing these days.

Skillsaw was part of my Ultimate Invasion project.  When UI became an official TeamTNT project in 98 (Ty's idea), the UI team became part of TeamTNT.  Some other members to join through UI were Mark Klem and Nick Baker.

Could Adam be persuaded to release this map somewhere?

i will send this link and an email to Adam. Good times. I remember our group meetings on compuserve action forums. Never really accomplished anything but so much fun. Me and Adam would deathmatch for ten cents a minute and he would smoke me. Of course i paid because he was 17. I'm 60 in three weeks. I want to to see E4 finished.

I'd love to ask Rand Phares why he wanted to torture future developers by adding multiple line comments at EOL.  Dealing with those in ReBOOM has been quite a pain :) but a nice legacy that lives on, for now.
