    Textures the Way Id Did?

    The team behind D2TWiD were, although the experiment lasted exactly one texture. I grew my curls out, captured some sexy shots, smashed my neck on the sidewalk for some gnarly scab graphics (jks), and after some sobering goes at the editor trying to get the unforgiving Doom pallet to agree with my pasty white skin, the world's greatest 256 x 104 tutti frutti Kevin Cloud imitation was born... ...But the world wasn't ready for BEARDLOW. It died in obscurity, and the disgrace from my failing was so powerful that it stunted my face follicles. I haven't been able grow a beard since 2013.
  2. @Doomkid These tracks weren't made with Doom 2 in mind, specifically. Parade was actually more a Duke 3D Lunar Apocalypse getup. That said... it could fit in a bunch of spots like 05, 06, 12, 13, 15, 21, 24, 25... I'd say 12 is the best option, in a pinch. Salon, though... is Sleazy Underhalls. If it's going to be used it doesn't have many other places to go.
  3. Evil on Parade.mid, from way back in 2016. En el Salón.mid Blues it up. Use minimalism. Keep it simple. Shred solos. Add salsa. Steal riffs from contemporary sources. Be a lawyer.
  4. If you panic when your back's against a wall and smash in IDCHOPPERS to save you I'm not going to cast dispersion, cheese or any other kind of comestible you can cut with a chainsaw. You're actually a champion of the game. More power to you.

    Never make a level that lasts longer than the idea.

    How does one get good at Doom?

    Just dropping by to add again that yes, Doom was meant to be played with a mouse... ...A mechanical mouse! The dust and lint getting caught in the tracking ball and causing your marine to seize up or trip over is a feature of the game. Being a good Doom player is about keeping a cool head when you need to reach for the microfiber cloth in the middle of a firefight. Remember to pause the game or your marine will start pinwheeling like a ballet on a hardwood floor. Also what NIH said. Good post.

    Return to Hadron Episode 3 - Idgames release

    Cannonball! I'm your biggest fan and I love your work. I wish I had something for you to autograph. Cannonballs are hard to come by. Maybe a black bowling ball?

    MIDI Originals [09/23/20]

    Exceptional work here, Psyrus. I should have commented earlier. Mostly I've been reading the MIDI versions in a sequencer. I haven't read up but is there a Doom project or other game release that showcases your tracks in action i.e. with you as the main talent?

    The Alfonzo MIDI Depository

    Hi. I'm making music again. Sometimes, this music is good. Here are some additions and changes to the Alfonzo MIDI Depository: Bloody Rust 3 MIDIs added. Copperhead Digging Up Ghosts Prime Mover Soul Clamp Alfonzone MIDIs added. Examples: Calzone On The Outer Thrummingbird Wet Lunch Some of the stuff has been edited to have better balancing or mixing, but without being versioned because I'm a goddamn monster (but I will let you know when sweeping updates are made so you can check the date of your downloads for personal keeping). The dissociated or "standalone" tracks that were previously just sitting pretty in the parent directory are now in "Extras" instead, because that's what they are. Also, the terrible speed midis have been squirreled away in an Alfonzone sub-directory to minimize the chances of you seeing and downloading them. Stay tuned for more tracks at the turn of the century.

    The Alfonzo MIDI Depository

    The natives have been getting restless. 'Why don't you upload your MIDIs somewhere so that we can download them, you idiot.' Fair enough. Here they are, courtesy of Wartorn and his awesome service: http://alfonzo.the-powerhouse.net/ Example track #1: Mystic Tides, from Realm of Parthoris (2015) Example track #2: Corrugator, from Bloody Rust 2 (2016) Example track #3: Clippings, (2015) Example track #4: Aerial Tombs, (2013) Please feel free to use anything and everything as you see fit, because it's all been featured in/composed for released titles like Realm of Parthoris or Bloody Rust 2. This stuff dates back as far as 2012 when I first started composing using Sekaiju. None of what you hear here has been registered through instrumental input; it's all been painstakingly (and often poorly) cobbled together by clicks and scrolls of the mouse. I hope you find something worth using in your levels! Check back every other month, as I'll be composing and uploading new material in a desperate attempt to win over some suitors. Cheers.

    Favorite sound in the the original Doom games?

    Gut-blasting a stack of barons up close with BFG blast rays and hearing them bitch and moan as they melt to the floor.
  13. Welcome back, Joe! I enjoyed playing a lot of the material you released during your absence from Doomworld. It wasn't even a guilty pleasure — the maps were really fun and worth talking about. A thoughtful designer could take inspiration from some of what you've made.

     

    Look forward to seeing you contribute in future. Good luck!

      I still remember and sometimes watch clips of your hijinks in my shitty old deathmatch mappack and still laugh, good (kinda) times. A nice turnaround to what you're saying right here.

      I'm glad you enjoyed watching us have fun at your expense. That's the spirit :) I'm not sure how I would have handled that kind of derision. Badly, probably.

  14. Alfonzo

    Chainsaw. What for?

    Have you ever sparred with a baron using a chainsaw? It is the ultimate showdown. A crazy, awkward, stupid adrenaline rush. Like playing a game of red hands in a centrifuge and the prize is not dying. Yes, listen to all the people telling you it had an array of uses, yada yada, but its real value is being a ceremonial duelling weapon for idiots. Embrace it when better options are available. It's the best way to die.
  15. I'm sorry. But not really. But actually I am.

    "Really, really fast" is a relative phrase. I'm sure I look like bolt lightning to... I dunno, a mollusk or something. Definitely not snakes. Speaking of which, here's a Copperhead for dt_'s map. I hope you like it. It's a bit different.

  21. December, 2019 > Download Scythe > NaZa's unofficial leader board Leaderboards What is the Doomworld Ironman League? The DWIronman League is a monthly competition in which participants aim to survive for as many levels as possible in the given map set, preferably in one sitting. Click the spoiler tag below for a detailed list of rules. Players of all levels of ability are welcome. It could change the way you play Doom! In December 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League is visited by The Ghost of Christmas... Death? @Erik Alm's Scythe is one of the quintessential Ironman WADs. Speedrunners will call it breakfast, but for a young and sprightly Alfonzo it was the gateway to a new mode of play, and a terrible thing to behold. Amazingly, using some shameful combination of cowardice, corner-camping and good luck, I managed to Run For It! all the way to MAP30 in 2010... only to chicken out and abandon the save game file for months out of fear I would cock it all up. Which, of course, I did, in the end. It was my one and only attempt, and it became a spectre of defeat that dangled over my head for almost a decade. Dangled like a scythe! Now, then, at the turn of a new decade, it is time to put this matter to bed. It is also time for me to step down as convener for The Doomworld Ironman League. Commitments elsewhere in life have completely pantsed all possibility of my upholding standards, here. @NaZa, who has essentially been running the joint for the last six-or-so months and been my right hand statistician for much, much longer, will step into the role to keep things ticking over. And I'm sure he'll do a stand-up job! While I continue to enjoy thinking up fun ways to entertain the league each month and watching the demos roll in (and, uh, occasionally the demos themselves), the task demands more attention than I can spare, for now and into the foreseeable future. Now seems the right time to make a move, with 2020 around the corner. I want to thank all the participants who have made this such a successful staple of the Doomworld forums. Not just the evergreen survivalists, but everyone who kept rocking up up damn near every month to charge into death, time and time again; those who have dipped their toes in to test the waters; those who have surged in like a storm front and ripped the competition a new one, only to disappear and never be seen or heard from again. I can't name one person or I'll end up naming them all... so a great big group group hug to @everyone! It's been real. Good luck to all in 2020. I'll participate where I can and die screaming with the best of them. Blind, too, maybe! Isn't that exciting? Essential Info Doom 2 as the IWAD selected.

    Thanks! The noose is around my musical neck, now, but that's okay. I made my bed and now I have to sleep in it make MIDIs in it really, really fast. Some fine maps here, too. I think joe has come a long way. He's got the messy playground market pinned down pretty well, at this point, and I know that sounds like a backhanded compliment but it isn't!

    The DWIronman League dies to: Scythe

    What the category numbers mean has changed somewhat since they were introduced, so looking back at previous months can be confusing. Category 3 used to mean what the current "Prepared" leader board does: practicing your run after the WAD has been announced and then self-declaring the official run before it's made. Now, category 3 is a first attempt like any other on the Standard leader board, except the player will have watched either a stream or a demo of the WAD being played before making his run. The 3 categories only exist to serve the Standard leader board. There are no categories for the Prepared leader board.

Click the spoiler tag below for a detailed list of rules. Players of all levels of ability are welcome. It could change the way you play Doom! In November 2019 The Doomworld Ironman League dies to Abcess, an episode of six levels by resident pelt-farmer @Steve D. Abcess was released in 2017 but finalized nearly two decades prior in 1998, so the adoring hordes of Duff's Heat Miser will find precious few blankets of cacodemons to blast out of the sky. It has a more classic lean, instead, with wide networks of loosely textured corridors and with very open combat design. Navigation can be a bit tricky for some; resource management a problem for others. Expect a slow build and some customarily rude awakenings... from the '90s!
