Five buildings of id - December 28, 2000 - adamw emailed me with information about the cheat 'idmypos' which was put in for help line operators so they know exactly where you are in a level. There are five black buildings in map13 that are like the id software building, though none of them have a big white entrance like the actual building. Probably the closest one is the one with the red key door, which I used for the new Earth page. I will upload a picture of the actual id building as soon as I get my scanner working, and I am going to put a map where the actual building is there as soon as I get one.
Shoot the Anthology while Dave Taylor is cheating on Earth and Hell with the patch in a world of Doom - December 27, 2000 - One new page that I only finished today, the id Anthology page all about that big box of id games. Also I updated the Weapons page with reload times and the key you press to use each weapon. After I got an email from Arioch I updated the Cheat page to fix up the 'iddt' thing, its Dave Taylor! Thanks Arioch who also told me where the 3rd and 4th episodes of Doom/Ultimate Doom take place, so the Earth and Hell pages should be up soon (can anyone tell me which black building in Doom2 is meant to be id software's black glass building in real life). There has been allot going on at this page today, fod has just sent me the patch for the Doom 2 v1.666 dated 94/08/25, its over at the Doom 2 page, Maonth tells me that 'IDKFA is short for ID Keys Firearms Armor and IDFA: ID Firearms Armor..' which sounds about right. Oh and it looks like Doomworld.com might host the site soon Yippie!
The Place to Cheat - December 24, 2000 - Four new pages up about places you visit in Doom, Mars, Phobos, Deimos and a Cheat page. The place pages have information about the real life places and how the story in Doom uses them. The Cheat page has all the cheat codes for Doom and Doom2 with a little info about them. Have a great Christmas everyone, I'll work on the rest of the places including earth, in Doom 2, one of the moons of Jupiter in Final Doom (which one I don't know yet) and maybe Hell from Original Doom. If anyone knows where the 4th episode from Ultimate Doom "Inferno" takes place and/or what the 'dt' in the code 'iddt' stands for please tell me. thanks
