jDoom Modelyard archive is up, as it was in the fall of 2003

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

While digging through the vast detritus deposits clogging up my file server, I've found a full snapshot of the Modelyard I once maintained.

So I just slapped a new virtual host onto my web server replacing whatever dead links to the Fourwinds ftp server I could with links to a subfolder.

https://modelyard2003.chebmaster.com/

I have no idea what would modern antivirusi(es?) think of all those EXE files (self-extracting archives, 7-Zip easily opens them). ESET seems chill.

The usefulness of this is very debatable as my models of the time rely on  a *specific* Doomsday engine version and its particle effects (later reworked by its author into a different, incompatible mechanism -- the main reason I lost interest in the project)

 

If you want a working sample with all my painstakingly tuned particle effects working, grab the 208 Mb snapshot bloated with unrelated garbage from here: https://gamedev.ru/projects/forum/?id=270051 -- it includes the last JDoom version that worked. May need to switch KickStart2 from Russian to your language.

Also, when it whines about DOOM2.WAD answer "No" - that means it will ask you to point to it via file dialog. Answering "Yes" leads to it trying to scan through all your drives. And likely crashing. (Windows 98 I coded it on did not have such a thing as access restrictions)

 

My current opinion on those 19-year old works of mine?

TRAVESTY.

Go Brutal Doom instead.

 

2 staff: remove or move to another subforum if you must. To be honest, I only found I have an account here by looking through my password archives for a doom-themed board.

 

P.S. if someone ever wants it, KickStart2 could probably be ported to Lazarus - with effort, due to string handling changes and so on - as the source code is available https://modelyard2003.chebmaster.com/fourwinds/kickstart2_06_src.zip

(it was Delphi 2, 3 or 4, can't remember exactly)

This is all so much nostalgia for me. I never thought I'd see this stuff again. My jDoom install back in the day brought my TNT2 to its knees! Downloading this all as we speak.
