Romero is answerin' questions

Recommended Posts

I asked him a question about if he had much control over the development of DOOM 64 and if he liked how the game turned out.

Are you serious? I looked here and I didn't find anything about that Romero was responsible for the development for Doom 64 at all ... You are wrong :-P !

No, he wants to make John Romero his dianer :-). I said dianer, because he wouldn't take over a classic doom project anymore... but maybe a dianer :-) !

EDIT: I meant deaner with "e"

I asked if he preferred ESDF ('standard' touch typing position) or WASD (Every FPS I've got on the PC comes with this standard)

I asked the following:

What did you create at Keen 4? It is the best Keen I think. Maybe you have a favorite level of it? Mine is "Chasm Of Chills" (on the map: up right in the cave)

He's already answered that, but yeah, I figured if he's using RIGHT SHIFT to jump, he's probably not using either.

Turns out he's left handed and uses the arrow keys.
I am mildly surprised by this.

You can say "helper" or assistent... (...this is more correct). I say deaner :-P!

"Assistent" is not more correct than assistant.

And while "Diener" is a German word than you may find in English, neither "dianer" nor "deaner" exist.

I often use online dictionaries myself - but you have to be aware that their translations are not always entirely trustworthy, and sometimes even include some quite evil denglish user submissions. Don't be the Sandy Peterson of words!

Your link doesn't work for me...

assistant = deaner =>

to assist:
"the activity of contributing to the fulfillment of a need or furtherance of an effort or purpose"
http://www.wordreference.com/definition/assist


I think the word deaner is an english word, because I found 2 websites with it (see above).

EDIT: on one of these websites I found "Unverified" now. Well, then I meant assistant :-)

He has good musical taste. Savatage is amazing, RIP Criss Oliva.


I'd say Savatage was amazing, then Criss died and it all went to hell. :(

Savatage with Criss Oliva and Crimson Glory with Midnight 25 years ago at Donnington? Where do I get tickets?!

Hijacked! Now that you've asked John Romero everything you've ever wondered, now you can ask a true gaming legend what you want...

ME.

Here ya go!

Wow he's got a fully vertically tiling grotesque face texture. I don't doubt it can be done with a photoeditor though. But Doom normally lacks the tiling.

I asked him from a design standpoint what he liked about MMOs, then asked him why he didn't think MUDs from back in the day lived up to this.

That texture is in the JDUI for Doomsday. Can't remember if it tiled vertically in it though.

I asked him what was his opinion of PSX Doom. I might ask him about his feelings on the censorship of SNES Wolf 3d, and if SNES Doom was really censored.
