Things about Doom you just found out

Recommended Posts

The smoothly pulsing light sector effect appears to override the added light flashes made by weapons in sectors that have it.  This isn't the case with some of the other light specials.

In vanilla/chocolate Doom, the music when turned all the way down doesn't stop, it instead plays very quietly.

I saw this video of Aqarius199 and I noticed the spawn cubes go to these exact spots only. Always thought the Icon of Sin spit them out in semi-random locations of the map, so this might be very useful if your doing a legit run of Map 30 (no mouselook). Then again maybe its just because of Antares DeHackEd patch.

While playing through Doom Classic Complete with the Guncaster mod, I found the secret exit to Fortress of Mystery by complete accident. Note that I've played Knee-Deep in the Dead for most of the time I've played Doom, and never expanded out to the other episodes.

I never noticed this texturing bug/quirk on Tricks and Traps before. Can't unsee it now!

I guess I can add another texturing bug/quirk. This one is on The Abandoned Mines at the yellow key room. Didn't know some ceilings were floating on the sky!

yeah, cube destinations are just invisible things with the special ednum, placed on the map. icon basically just throwing cubes at each this thing in turn, telefragging anything that happened to be on a spawn point (even player with godmode cheat turned on).

For some reason I thought the explosions during the death of icon of sin were only decorative, but they hurt actually.

You can actually punch barrels into enemies :v.

Indeed, you can create landmines in vanilla Doom by triggering crushers with barrels into teleporters.

That's how I finished Doom 2 the first time, I jumped ahead by reflex when the big monster died, then my marine died, but I still won the game. Guess that was the end of Doomguy, RIP, but he saved our planet.

Isn't that a ceiling teleport pad? It's a pretty common occurrence, and no surprise to see it floating, given that it's HELL.

@Erick @printz

It's the ceiling of a teleport pad on the floor, yes, but I doubt it's intentional since you can't ever see it in vanilla and it's just a plain flat, not a mirroring of the floor pad.  It's only visible in that shot because of the severe mouselook angle that's only possible in ports that have unrestrained looking angles.

I usually find out stuff just to forget what it was and find it all out again, so..

 

lately I found out that atleast a version of the Doom 2 exe has an extra area in Map03, The Gantlet; it's a hidden closet located in one of the pool's corners that was removed in the more popular releases of the game.

god knows which other areas may have been edited out throughout the game as newer versions of the game were released back then.

 

the red building in Citadel (Map19) was maybe meant to have more rooms because when you noclip around it you can literally walk up and down stairsteps in the non-textured area of the building. a door point located on the other side of the building can also be seen in the automap that is actually covered by red bricks.

 

the "corner" tagged as secret in Hell Mountin (Map04 in No rest for the living) should be a necessary trigger to unlock access the secret exit (which is located all the way to another side of the map).

some people would think that corner was tagged as secret by mistake.

 

y'all feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about my stuff.

There may be some confusion here. A small area was added to The Gantlet in later patches.

Map 11 has a non-secret wall that you can walk through. It's located near the staircase where the arch-vile first appears. (The metallic area, not the outsidey ones).

It's rather handy to know as apparently it contains a soulsphere! :o

O, I see.  I was seeing a blue door from a distance in the screenshot, but when I went to the blue door, it looked nothing like the screenshot.  Now, I see that it is across the O from the blue door.

The great prank that is the -turbo parameter (which didn't print any messages in its first implementation, as it was added in secret just to help Shawn Green defeat Romero at deathmatch) reached its glorious conclusion when wounded Romero ran towards the Berserk by the staircase on MAP13, only for Green to turbo-sprint past him, run up the stairs, drop down on the Berserk from above and punch him in the face.

A Spider Mastermind can infight with another Spider Mastermind, if provoked.

 

True enough, which can't be that common unless there's multiple masterminds in the same area of a level. That particular arrangement must be rather rare.

 

I would think SMM's infighting is be due to the fact that bullets and shells will hurt anyone, regardless of whether they are the same things (so a zombieman can kill another zombieman, a sergeant can kill/wound another sergeant, etc.). Perhaps I'm wrong and there's more to it than that.
