  1. Building Chocolate Doom

    Okay, thank you. I'm going to try these instructions when I can.
  2. Building Chocolate Doom

    Okay, so I tried both of these methods, and none of them work either. The problem with Arch Linux is that it doesn't recognize my proper keyboard layout, with the default one being very.. strange, and trying to set the right one is kinda very difficult, since the console does not let me scroll up to see the full list of available keyboard layouts for my computer. And this Doesn't work because MSYS2 tells me it cannot find autotools, autobuild, mingw-w64-x86_64-gpp, mingw-w64-i686-gpp, mingw-w64-x86_64-g++ and mingw-w64-i686-g++, and either using the command you provided, or trying to install them one by one says it couldn't find them either, so it doesn't allow me to proceed.
  3. Building Chocolate Doom

    Hey there. Does anyone have up-to-date instructions on how to build the Chocolate Doom Windows binaries? Doesn't matter if it's cross-building. I downloaded the 3.0.0 source code, and made some modifications just for personal use, but the instructions on the ChocoDoom wiki, on Github, and even Linguica's Tutorial are all out of date and won't work whatsoever.
  4. You can't scale first-person perspective weapon sprites through DECORATE. That would only apply to the pickup sprites, so the scaling has to be done through TEXTURES. It can be done with ZScript, by replacing the line specials at level load. Okay, so I've done a couple of fixes, which include correcting the weapon aspect ratios, and also adding some missing actors in PSXHUDAR1.pk3 which were causing the final Cast Call to loop out of control: https://mega.nz/#!nIZ03T6Y!R4e7YbhqCrBj4AUXIsg-5DpSKONRoTPQvjhZ4OEg5T0
  5. How come no one has still said anything about the vertically-squished weapons? I mean, I know the sprites in the original game are rendered vertically-squished, but the output aspect ratio should match the correct ratio used in PC Doom. Just see examples: Original PSX Doom played in an actual CRT TV: https://i.imgur.com/jP4biig.jpg Exact same area played in GZDoom g3.1.0 without any Aspect Ratio forcing: https://i.imgur.com/6zGLCJc.png I guess I can fix that if nobody objects, but that'll mean some pixels may be lost in the transition and that will mean this TC won't be as true to the original game. But those are just details. Meanwhile, I made changes to PSXDOOM.CFG because the CVar "secretmessage" no longer exists, and instead, added "cl_showsecretmessage" which is set to False by default. Also removed the "con_scaletext" CVar from there because it's annoying for people like me who like to scale text to values higher than 1. If nobody minds, I guess I'll make a patch for the "blinking" keycards on the status bar whenever the player tries to activate a key-locked line (door, switch, etc). PSXDOOMCFG.zip
  6. Stupid BSP Tricks

    I'm waiting for the official announcement.
  7. We've seen thousands of stories just like what you mention over the years. And no, a trope is a literary resource which helps structuring the story. A cliché is something that's overused to the point it's expected and predictable (yes, this very scene).
  8. That scene reeks of "let's show those demons who's boss" Hollywood cliché. I don't see why would you include that in a Doom game, unless you don't know what you're doing.
  9. I'm sure someone made a backup. It's only a matter of time until the video resurfaces.
  10. Naw, he looks like Liam Neeson.
  11. Strife: Veteran Edition

    I guess this is the case, since they mention the introduction of the new multiplayer mode in the Steam page. I suspect the maps were tweaked to insert the new actors/facilitate gameplay for this game mode. I wanna dream and say cooperative mode is also working (which would require the IWAD to be modified).
  12. Evil Unleashed - New Screens on Page 2!

    You don't want drama yet you have caused an enormous riot? lmao That's all I can say about it.
  13. Computer Map screen

    No, the actual maps are: - Han = E2M7 - SD = E2M2 - Waste = E2M3 - Com = E1M6 - Rec = MAP10 (Doom 2) - Quart = E1M7 - Contr = E2M4 - Pow = E1M2 - Lab = E3M3 - Obs = E1M10 (0.4 Alpha) - Ware = E1M11 (0.4 Alpha) - Anom = E1M8 - Ref = E1M3 I know because I've spent too much free time with them lol
  14. Brutal Doom v19 gameplay video series

    What. I cannot believe you said that to prove me this thing is any good. Did I say otherwise? This pretty much sums up my opinion. I still think it's admirable the amount of work SgtMark has put on this, but I fail to get impressed by the end result.
  15. Brutal Doom v19 gameplay video series

    I would like some gentle soul to explain me, what is it that everyone finds Brutal Doom so awesome? No offense to SgtMark, but I really think it's nothing special.
