Doom Insanity:
[1-2]: DOOM: The Real Thing
===========================
FOREWORD: This messages was posted from gills@qucdn.queensu.ca on
Usenet in the group comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action on Monday,
November 15, 1993. He has a new idea: playing DOOM in REAL LIFE!

----------
Howdy,

Yes, like all you DOOM fans I have been eagerly awaiting the release
date for this landmark game. Although I was very disappointed in the
release date being bumped up from 3rd quarter '93 to Dec 10, I limited my
anger and frustration to strangling my neighbour's cat (didn't like it much
anyways.... ;) ).

But, NOW I'm forced to read all the great stuff about the Beta
release that some people have been lucky enough to get their hands on.
....well, not FORCED to read it, but I can't help absorbing every bit of
information I can possibly locate. :)

I can't handle the fact that some people have tried the game now,
and I haven't, so I thought I might pull out my brass knuckles and 12 gauge
pump shotgun and start up a *REAL* DOOM game. I figured that I, and 3 other
frustrated DOOM awaiters, could meet up at an abandoned warehouse or
something and have a rip snortin' Death Match of our own. We could throw
some shotgun shells and ammo boxes randomly around the place, along with
some first-aid kits (fine for light grazes from perhaps a .22 calibre round
but not much good for a 12 gauge belly wound :) ) - then we go at it !!!

Granted, there won't be any monsters in this place, like there are
in DOOM, but I do have a pretty ugly cousin I could trick into coming; and
with a quick dunk in some gray paint I'm convinced he could bear a passable
resemblance to a gargoyle <G>.

So ....any takers? Heh, heh, heh.

Note: This a JOKE, only a joke....that's J-O-K-E..as in, I'm not serious.
If you are a certified nut-bar who would like to really try this out
don't bother calling me up....I get faint from tension just playing
Paintball :)

But, seriously...I CAN wait until Dec 10 to play DOOM but it's
getting pretty tense doing the waiting game. I guess in the mean time I can
go pick up some Depends (adult diapers) and some I.V. supplies so I'll be
prepared on Dec 10 to stay on the computer playing DOOM steadily until I
collapse from exhaustion.
Of course if a copy of Beta-DOOM *DID* happen to make it's way to
me, I would still download the shareware version and register/pay for the
full release.
I swear I would....really...I promise....scout's honor...anyone?..anyone?

lolwut?

Anyway, that video WOULD be kind of interesting, except that the "imp" was just a dude in plain clothing. I would expect at least a brown hoodie or something, but this is just off. I did like the fireball effects though, they were well timed with his actions.

SLOWEST

REACTION



TIME



EVER.



Some of the effects were pretty neat, to be fair. You could do something pretty cool with those ideas. But a guy in a yellow hoody does not equal an actual imp.

Nice effects, imp could have looked more Doom-ish - points deducted for broken status bar and slow reflexes.

@Never_Again

Ya, took about 2 hours. I am planning on making a video that lasts around a minute or so, but I am trying to get my hands on a better camera (I know, better quality, longer work :P). Lol to the dog thing :P

BTW did anyone notice that there is sound? I think you guys did, but I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks, I guess..............

For my next film I was wondering if I should (instead of using my brother :P) put the sprites from doom directly into the movie. This would take a lot longer, but I think it might be worth it. What are your thoughts guys?

IMO I think you should put your brother in a scary costume. Also, I say instead of getting hit 3 times, you should dodge some attacks and act like you're really playing Doom.

Ya, dodging attacks was already planned. I don't have any costumes, so I may use sprites.

Can't be too hard to make an imp costume. Find some brown clothes that don't have any really noticeable zippers, buttons, pockets.. etc, and super glue some spikes made out of construction paper or tin foil on them.

Sprites might look less stupid though.
