  1. I am trying to figure out what kind of instrument this sound is based on in Donkey Kong Countries Fear Factory music track at 0:45 of the link I posted, I am guessing some sort of wind instrument. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fXOAnZahss&feature=youtu.be&list=RD8fXOAnZahss&t=45

     

    1. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I could be wrong though, it might just be a random synth sound.

    2. Doomkid

      Doomkid

      Sounds like synth. Sounds kinda-sorta like its trying to be a Viola or maybe even a Sax, but it isn't quite either.

    3. Tristan

      Tristan

      Yeah, I'd say it's closer to a viola than anything else as far as real instruments are concerned.

  2. I have never really played a campaign based co-op game with someone in such a long time, the last game I ever played co-op in believe it or not was Call of Duty: World at War some time around 2009-2011.

     

    The first game I recall playing co-op in was James Bond Everything or Nothing on the GameCube with my brother, hell I can't even remember when that was.

     

    I have never really played any of the ID games in co-op such as Doom and Quake, not even any of the build engine games either.

      Try AutoDoom or Thursday Night Survival

  3. This Diablo 2 remix is epic, I couldn't help but laugh at some of it.

      Using SEs from the game to compose music is always amazing to listen to.

  4. Apparently the Tasty Spleen community will be holding a 500 frag Deathmatch to celebrate Quake 2's 20th anniversary, I think I may get involved for the fun of it.

  5. Apparently there's someone working on recreating the Metroid Prime engine in the effort to make a mouse and keyboard enabled PC port which requires an iso of the original game for the game resources. For the longest time I was actually wishing someone would do something like this and it's actually happening now, I really hope Nintendo doesn't discover this project as I would really like to see it completed, it would give me an excuse to actually play through the game unlike with my second-hand copy I barely ever played. This would be the next best thing after the Another Metroid 2 Remake fan game.

  6. Because I am not doing much with my life I am deciding to try my hand at creating music, the genre's I have in mind are ambience and synth. The problem is I really do not know where to start.

  7. Decided to get back into Doom since it's been too long for me, I am also looking to improve my ability to make maps and I have come up with some custom industrial textures which I want to see how well they would work with a test map.

      It looks like, in mapinfo, you'd simply type:

       

      sky1 sky1 (number here)

       

      when defining the sky for the map. 0.01 being a slow scroll, for example.

    3. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I did forget to mention that I am using GZDoom Builder and the map is going to be in UDMF. I don't know if mapinfo works that way with just any texture.

    4. Ichor

      When I updated GZDoom to 2.4.0 (this was before 3.0.0), I was using the skies definitions in the MAPINFO with the old format (i.e. 20 instead of something like 0.2). When I played my maps, the skies were scrolling at insane speeds.

  8. Finding it difficult to make friends both online and offline, it's been like this for some time now, I wish I knew what it was holding me back.

      The best way to make friends as a childless adult both on- and offline is to find hobbies that interest you and find places to interact with other people who share the same hobby. The best way to make friends as an adult with kids is to join the PTA.

  9. GZDoom's fog doesn't work the way I want it to, there is only one set kind and no alternatives unfortunately.

      Make sure you are setting fogdensity in MAPINFO. This property "fixes" fog so that it gets applied evenly across all light levels. Normal GZDoom fog behavior is rather odd.

    3. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I wanted a fog which shows at a distance rather than fill up the whole room like the default fog in the source port.

    4. Dragonfly

      Dragonfly

      This could be simulated with some linedef trickery - have it so the fog is set when you cross a linedef at a distance, perhaps? You may be able to play with it enough that it has a 'gradual fade' effect. Alternately, if you're willing to get super advanced about it, have a script running that checks your distance from a hidden / invisible actor at the point of the fog.

       

      You could also use translucent, solid-colour midtextures which are activated the same way as the abovementioned idea.

  10. Hey, did you just come back? It's been a while.

      It appears Real Life™ took a toll on him.

  11. Hey, I haven't seen you post here in quite some time. I hope all is well.

  12. How do you take screenshots in Doom 64 Ex? I tried the old fashioned way by using PrtScn and pasting it on MsPaint but it was just completely black.

    1. scifista42

      scifista42

      I quickly looked into "Options -> Controls", and in category "Non-bindable keys", it said "Screenshot: F5".

    2. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      Ah, thanks. I don't know how I missed that.

    3. scifista42

      scifista42

      Where I said "Options -> Controls", I meant "Options -> Controls -> Bindings".

  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.

    1. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      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.

    2. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      If you can find some MT-32 soundfonts, you can use something like VirtualMIDISynth to have quality music with general MIDI.

  14. I can't yet figure out how to add coloured fog in GZ Doom Builder, anybody have any tips?

      No problem, its not very clear really, I had to play around a bit. The other option above just sets the default colour for the sector, its a more artifical effect, so that when you enter a sector your weapon will change ot that colour and such. Good luck with your maps!

    3. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I am mostly just testing custom textures along with a kind of scene with fog, but thanks for the well wishes.

    4. Phade102

      Phade102

      Well I hope it gives you some inspiration for a future map. I added fog to an old map I did yesterday and god it made a beautiful difference.

  15. I finally got around to trying Blood on the GDX port and it's much better than I expected, but something feels off about it and I can't quite place it.

      It's still in development. Personally I'm waiting for it to be actually finsihed.

  17. I hate it when Youtube video suggestions spoil parts of movies or TV shows.

      Usually the Youtube thumbnails ruin the surprise. Top 5 video games of all time! Mario 3 and Half-Life 2 are in the thumbnail. Top secret hidden bosses of all time! Thumbnail has 3 bosses I've never seen before.

       

      What about spoiler warning.... as they're showing what they're about to talk about and the background footage spoils it. How about a video game Youtuber just randomly talks about TV shows and movies to spoil them when they go out of their way to NOT spoil video games they talk about.

       

      Oh I can go further.... trailers that spoil movies. Terminator trailers in particular.

  18. I hate these Kleer Skeleton's in Serious Sam 3, they can be very annoying to deal with even with powerful weapons. They are like Demons/Pinkys on steroids.

      Rocket launchers aimed at the floor, my friend. If life doesn't give you grenades, but gives you rockets, turn those rockets into grenades.

    3. GarrettChan

      GarrettChan

      @R1ckOh yeah... totally forgot about the secret exclusive weapon...

       

      @AlbertoniNice sentence, love it. Just in case you're not joking, hitting the ground with rockets doesn't deal much damage, and you have a risk to "launch" the Kleer towards you, but it's difficult to compare because there's no such thing in 3.

    4. Albertoni

      Albertoni

      I was half joking and half giving an idea. I don't remember much of SS3, sadly.

  19. I have been obsessing with certain texture styles from N64 games, I want to try messing around with a fair amount of textures in Doom from games such as from Perfect Dark, Ocarina of Time, and Goldeneye, and even Mario Kart.

    1. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      Shadows of the Empire textures would be nice too.

    2. Dragonfly

      Dragonfly

      The game I've always wanted a set of texture rips from is the PSX's Spyro The Dragon. If you're in the know about how to rip textures from PSX Games, I'd be both impressed and somewhat desparate to learn.

      Also I thought Perfect Dark was flippin' awesome, so a PD themed map set would be right down my alley!

    3. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I can try finding out for you if they can be ripped or not, however I'd imagine the universal texmod tool may be able to rip the textures from PC memory while running the emulator.

  20. I have decided to give Rise of the Triad: Dark War a try, but after looking around on the internet I cannot find any kind of source port for it so far.

      ^ Perhaps, haha.

      My main point of discontention with the game is the fact that it's kinda, hmm, "delusive" in terms of gameplay.

      On the surface it looks very much alike with Doom and its relatively small and easy to navigate levels (talking about the original stuff here ofc). There's the gunplay, the fancy jump stuff and the insane enemies. Sounds merry-go-round eh??

      However at some point you realize that it is actually Wolf3D under the hood, and I don't mean just in terms of the game engine.

      Mazes mazes mazes mazes even when it's all a huge open area. Or corridors corridors corridors, everything looks absolutely identical and barely any possibility of distinguishing any particular location from any other location. I prefer my linearity.

      So in my playthru, I would end up spending up to 50 minutes (not joking!) just wandering around after cleaning the enemies up, looking for that one goddamn mandatory pushwall that I missed. IIRC this is especially expressed (and aggravating) in E3 and E4, where the levels get big.

      Furthermore, the boss fight. Absolutely mind-blowing mechanism. I'd be genuinely AMAZED if anyone back in 1995 was able to figure this out on their own. I mean, it's definitely a step ahead of every other contemproary game with their "JUST ANOTHER ENEMY WITH 10X MORE HEALTH AND 10X STROGNER GUN" (e.g. Doom, Wolf, also Duke I think) , but maybe the step was... too far ahead.

       

      PS all ROTT ports crash all the time for me. 

      @Coraline you're our only hope, don't disappoint

    3. Avoozl

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

    4. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      @bzzrak What in the hell are you supposed to do at the end, anyway? I got there, got stuck, and called it a day. Haven't touched the game again ever since, and I don't plan on doing so, either.

  21. I have finally dropped soda and am drinking plain spring water, I got started with a 24x600ml pack and am going to go from there.

      The only problem so far is I seem to be more tired than usual now, it might be withdrawal but I don't know honestly.

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

  23. I just listened to Kashmir by Led Zeppelin, I think I may like this kind of music now.

      Oh cool this means I get to plug Rainbow's Stargazer again, second time in two days. It's pretty to similar to Kashmir (but better, imho) \m/

       

  24. I never would've thought that I would enjoy games like Serious Sam 3 but I have come to like it now and have found myself immersed in it unlike any other game for quite some time, of course there are moments which psis me off and I just quit the game to return to it another day but I am really enjoying it so far. There's so many similarities to Doom in it.

      I once invested myself some times on learning the engine when they're released the source code for their first engine. I love Serious Sam, the game brought me into Gaming at the first place. but the monster AI is really kinda unfair tbh.

    3. Phade102

      Phade102

      I like to think of Dooms slaughter wads as being similar to serious sam. its a solid game. You should try the HD First encounter and HD Second encounter too. They're obviously a bit dated, but they are insanely fun.

    4. Avoozl

      Avoozl

      I am actually quite fine with old games so I wouldn't really care if they are a bit dated.
