    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    And, look, I want to be clear: I am not putting a political diktat on this thread or on Doomworld. You are fine to argue over this until the cows come home so long as you remain respectful and sociable. I just personally think that John Romero, objectively, provably, is making a new Doom episode so that we, the Doom community, can play it. And it's gonna come out in like two months, and it'll be great, or else it will be just fine, and we will all play it and it will become an integral part of the Doom community's DNA, forever. But that is still two months from now. So let's just... bask in the moment, here. We are all anticipating a new Doom episode from John Romero. In ten years you would kill someone to relive this time, so don't waste it with petty and pointless bickering right now!

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad for Feb 2019

    I think it's indisputable that John Romero is only making this because of the Doom community. And I don't just mean that in the sense that the only reason he has modern tools to work with is because of the Doom community, although that is also indisputably true. In fact, I feel like he said as much - that the response to E1M8B, both generally and within the Doom community, was more overwhelming than he anticipated, and it gave him the idea to continue on and make the full episode. I think that says just about all that needs to be said about how important we are, to him, and not just vice versa. If you maybe want some more objective evidence, after E1M8B was released, and there was the Noclip documentary about him, I (obviously) watched the footage like the Zapruder film, and noticed: If you don't remember, I actually made a physical Cacoward and shipped it to him after he won one for E1M8B. And it showed up in the B-roll of a documentary about his new work in Ireland, totally unrelated to anything, apparently in a prominent award case, up at eye level...which means he thinks winning a Cacoward from Doomworld to be at least kinda a cool thing? So my point is: John Romero is making a new Doom episode because of us, and in part, for us, and considering he's John Romero, I think he deserves some goodwill here.

    Gee Billy, how come Doomworld lets you have TWO Sigil threads? Oh wait, they're merged now.

    Doom Rendering Pixels Taller than Wide

    320x200 is a standard DOS resolution used by many games and programs up to and including the DOS-based art program the artists were using. It was normal and unremarkable at the time that it didn't have square pixels, because who cares when it's on an analog CRT that doesn't strictly speaking have "pixels"?

    Both, I assume. You can keep a historical context in mind when you play something, but it still has to be fun to play today or else what's the point?

    Can you play Doom 2 on Nightmare?

    Nightmare mode was literally added as a joke for people complaining even UV was too easy for them.

    If there is one person on this whole forum who has no business accusing others of constantly referencing their past glories...

    Biggest snub: Army of Darkness Doom (1996) for its excellent Map03 that was in no way terrible
