Things about Doom you just found out

Recommended Posts

Aw, that's a shame :(

 

I've always loved that light brick texture and it's overbrights btw. Sinister and beautiful at the same time...

Important update on monster anatomy. I apologize for the misinfo, and regret to inform that the Shambler does not share the same textures that the Cyberdemon does. In fact, there is no rump on the poor creature whatsoever! This friendly Shambler from Scourge of Armagon turned his back on me to take care of some Vores, and that's when I noticed my error. Given that I said the original picture was from 4chan, the uploader of the image may have given his Shambler a personal buttock lift to satiate his own Lovecraftian fantasies.

@Maes will not be pleased.

Indeed. That rump looks more like a bear's or a tapir's.

It's been well established by Adrian himself that the Shambler does not have fur:

American McGee and John Romero have stated otherwise, but clearly the word of Jules is king over them.

You can look up and down in vanilla Heretic, though.

Yes but technically no, you're still looking horizontally, it's just that you move the viewport up. This article explains it in details and with a picture: Y-shearing.

I remember seeing artwork of a shambler in a magazine talking about the N64 version of the game and it was all skin.

No! What a disappointment!  At least 'satiate his own Lovecraftian fantasies' gave me a chuckle to soothe the blow.

So, if the poor creature can never really evacuate, that'd explain both its bulk and its demeanor.

Almost looks like it has a little bitty tail.

I always wondered... Given shamblers are quite furry and shoot lightning... Are they canonically shuffling their feet to build up a static charge?

And I just found out the proper plural for Mancubus. 

I could be wrong but I think the plural for Mancubus is Mancubi.

Correct.

It depends on whether the word mancubus comes from Latin or Greek.  Take octopus for example.  Octopus come to English from Greek, not Latin, so if you don't want to use the perfectly-acceptable English pluralization octopuses, you should use the Greek octopodes, not the Latin octopi.

Yeah, but it would further depend on the Greek declension. The octopus thing is actually -πους in the nominative singular and -ποδες in the plural, hence the "proper" English plural. But plenty of Greek "-us" words, which are really -ος words, have a plural of -οι, which corresponds to -i.

 

In any case, if it has to do with incubus, that would seem to suggest Latin. And Latin -us words can occasionally do funky things (opus -> opera), but incubus is not one of them.

Just found out how to fix this bug (Arch-Vile fire spawned at the wrong location) in vanilla Doom by patching the opcodes in the executable. I may create a thread about it on Sunday or Monday and explain how it was done.

 

It's amazing the things that can be done at 3:30AM while being sleep depraved.

 

EDIT: I'm writing an article about this on Medium, but I'm too busy to finish it this week.

But is it demo compatible :p ?

 

I just so happened to run into this issue while browsing the Github of Choco and Crispy last night, and if I'm not mistaken this was one of the main concerns of fixing this bug.

hrm, well, this wasn't world shattering, but I learned the hard way that Doom 1 doesn't have a lot of the more useful gore decorations, like the small pool of just blood or the brain with spinal column. A little annoying...

Yes it is. The 'fire' thing in Doom lets other things pass through it, I haven't found a single case where it could cause a demo or multiplayer to desync.
