Moderators have locked this thread when people started posting personal information from social media that isn't part of the Google doc folder or the wad itself. I'd wager that would happen again if new members started posting links to tiktoks or real-life information related to people involved or the location of the real house.

has anyone come across any bugs? the basement door, when you enter it from the garage....it doesn't close properly for me when I go backwards through it...seems to just enable you to walk through it, is this just another funny error left in that first time mappers make? or did something go wrong? I don't recall it doing that.

This seems to be partly intentional as part of the map's attempt to appear as an old map. The map restricts itself at the start to using only vanilla textures plus early pre-2000 Boom source port features like silent teleport lines. The purpose of this seems to be to make it initially believable to very experienced Doom players that the map is an old map and to lower their expectations so that the later use of newer features catches them by surprise.

 

Silent teleport lines cause that kind of issue you saw there. In the first version of the house, when you're in the garage far away from the basement door, the door you see is actually just a solid wall. When you get close to the door, you're teleported into a copy of the garage that isn't connected to the first floor but is now connected by to the basement by a real door. It creates a smooth illusion of a single continuous space if the door is closed and no enemies/items/bodies are visible around, but the illusion falls apart if something is changed between the two spaces when you pass between them.

 

It's not until the house has its first changeover that the map starts using custom textures and newer Gzdoom features such as level scripting, custom items and enemies, portals, and true 3d floors. These last two features allow the map to do room-over-room architecture without this kind of issue.

Only bug I came across was with the flooded house and trying to go down into the basement, which caused it to crash. By walking backwards into the basement, did I get by without the game crashing. 

 

Very weird.

How did you make a room on top of another if it isn't possible in the DOOM Engine?

Portals and sneaky line teleporters. Room-over-room using 3D floors is also possible in GZDoom (although it's used very sparingly, mainly in the gas station area)

Guys

 

Guys, omfg

 

I was just at a gas station after spending all night at the bar

 

It's like 2:00am and the attendant had a book out on the counter he was reading

 

I jokingly said "hey that looks like House of Leaves" because the text was all sideways and shit

 

He was like, "yup"

 

Then he was like, "so I'm assuming you've played that Doom mod"

Now that is all out in the open, funny the zeitgeist of yt reasoning that came apon so many people. The attic in the mirror world makes total sense now. He even recreated the smallest detail to the pictures on the wall, everything is actually real, doom davinci

Here's a pic of the car not being there for some reason, lights work!

You are in the mirror world.

In the mirror version of the forest, the car does not exist and the light comes from a flashlight on the ground.

It's been awhile since I've thought about myhouse nonstop, but as I was playing Putrefier I had to think back to how damn valuable MyHouse.Wad is (for me, at least) to getting such mainstream appeal outside of the Doom modding world and hooking me in. 

 

I am unsure that there will be enough quantifiable data to show it by the end of the year, but I'm imaging a Cacoaward write-up on the MyHouse.Wad effects for bringing in new people and if there will be an uptick in maps from new modders. 

 

To whoever vvedge actually is - damnit, thank you

This WAD made me finally register here. I come here every few months, usually around the Cocawards to download some wads.

 

This one deserves an award!

 

The first time you go around the house and see the monsters inside is such a WTF moment!

 

The use of teleports is incredible.

I've played this WAD when it was first a thing, yet never commented on it. And I'll only leave one phrase;

This is the most existentially and emotionally stressful WAD I have ever played.
