  1. Hello friends, I’ve been out of town the last few days and will be home this coming Wednesday. I’ve only had really spotty internet access and I saw I’ve got quite a few PMs, I’m not ignoring anyone though, I will absolutely read them all once I’m back home!

      Just make sure you take care of yourself and your needs first.

  2. Hey peoples, I’m gonna have to duck out of my community projects and stuff for the next couple weeks, just temporarily of course. My house has gone from normal to “completely fucked” - 2 of the 4 power circuits aren’t working, walls have been mutilated searching for an unfindable fault only to find termites, of course a tree in the back yard figured this would be a good time to fall onto the neighbors property (no excessive damage.. just a crushed fence and removal expenses..) but of course this is all during the hottest time of year, 100% greatest time for all my ceiling fans to no longer work, but ohhhh no that’s STILL not enough, 11 year old cat gets sick to the tune of a $200 vet bill (a few of her teeth are fucked and will rot out of her head but I simply don’t have the money for removal). You think that’s enough right? It’s not, there’s even more but I’m just sick of typing about it. All of my money is gone, my house is fucked, my time is all accounted for, I’m just sad and drained. Part of me wants to just neglect everything, admit defeat and spend the next few weeks buried in Doom projects to forget this POS existence for the time being. But my survival instinct is overriding it. Sorry for all my complaining.. I just want you all to know I’m not heartlessly ghosting the whole community for the next couple weeks or whatever. I’ll still be popping my head in as a much needed distraction from everything I’m sure..!

  3. Sorry I’ve been awol the last couple days, anyone who has tried to contact me. Southeast Australia is still burning away, even after our shitfuck Prime Minister was pressured into coming back home from Hawaii.

     

    Had no power for about 2 days and it’s still spotty as is internet connectivity. I hope things are going to calm down but it’s been like this since November really so who can say. I just wish to breathe air that isn’t 50% smoke again. It’s not like I can leave either as all 3 highways outta here are closed off. It blows asshole.

      A week or so ago the sky was so dark orange at only 3pm because of all the smoke haze and dust.

  4. I want to see a thread where only @seed, @Pegg , @Alper002 and @Ichor post. It would be a thing of beauty.

      It would be great to get some people together and play a Co-Op run of Hexen 2.

  6. Well, I am done with relationships for quite a while. Last week I got a place with the woman I’ve been seeing for 8 months, then one week in she has dumped me, very unexpectedly. In 4 weeks time I’ll be moving from Melbourne to Batemans Bay, about 900km north. Looking for a fresh start and to be closer to my family again. The only reason I even came to Melbourne back in 2013 was to be with my ex-wife, so I think there’s really nothing left here for me at this point.

     

    tl;dr: Bleh!!

      I'm sorry to hear about your relationships issues.

  9. I have forgotten how to make 3D floors in GZDoom Builder, could someone please link me a reliable video on how to do them?

  10. Ignore the whole "UoF is my last Doom map for a long time"    >_>    Guess you can't take the Doomer out of me!

     

    I've decided to take a break from my Quake level and experiment with an idea I had.  Well, three ideas, really.  The first is a map based on three areas, each with a different gameplay theme, and which can be done in any order.  The three areas are: environmental traps, darkness, and "normal" Doom-style gameplay.  I almost added a fourth, jumping puzzles, but decided not to.

     

    The second idea was to make a gothic techbase.  Think 40K meets Doom, with my own personal style.

     

    The final idea was to not have any difficulty selection, but instead make the map adjust itself dynamically.  So if the player is dying a lot, they start taking less and less damage, items show up more frequently, some areas may have fewer monsters dynamically spawn... stuff like that.  Since this could mean the level would get progressively easier, I also figure I should adjust the difficulty back up as time passes.  So to counteract things, I'm factoring in the number of deaths since a new game started, and "forgetting" some of them after certain amounts of time.  So if I've died 5 times since the level started, but X number of minutes has passed, it'll start thinking I've died only 4 or 3 times instead, then readjust things as-needed.

     

    I have no idea if any of this will work, but that's ok.  I just want to tinker ^_^  Prototyping in ACS is also easier than doing things in QuakeC for me at the moment since I'm still learning it, so I figure I might as well do it in GZDoom.

     

    Right now I'm still blocking out rooms and getting the difficulty adjustment scripts started.

     

    Also, the level already has a name: Freaky Panties

      What you first said kind of makes me think of D64's Hectic map.

  13. I am really enjoying ROTT on the GL port, I don't know why I didn't try this game sooner. It feels like an in between of Wolf 3D and Doom as far as the engine is concerned, but it also does things which even Doom doesn't. Also it's great to find yet another nazi shooter.

      The only real problem is it uses general midi, on the original dos version I set it to use the better Roland Sound Canvas music while using the Munt MT-32 emulator.

      Ah, so there was source ports, they just didn't turn up in my google search for some reason.

      It looks like it did have a source code release back in November 2002 which is like a whole 15 years ago but there's still no source ports for it, I find it quite baffling.

      I wish I had enough patience to work on a map and a complex one no less, along with the actual intention of finishing it.

      I guess it must've just been my connection although it's odd how it was only targeting that one website.

      The only other alternative is to get the original yellow and a snes adapter along with a snes.

      Back when I was leeching off a nearby coffee shop's internet which somehow reached my house I would get a 27.5 kbps speed from it and even then I was able to play certain online games with a little bit better if not hugely greater speed than that.
