    Post a picture of yourself!

    Yeah, lots of nice locks, folks. My hair has grown since my last post in here too, it's past my shoulders now. I'll have to remember to find/get a pic sometime before shaving it all off.

    The DWIronman League dies to: Legacy of Heroes

    Wow, I really enjoyed this set of levels. It took me over five hours (argh!!), but I survived, playing keyboard only. I think I spent half that time or more just getting lost in maps 08-09. Overall, very enjoyable, with just enough devious moments to keep me paying attention. I took heed at the warnings about dying to the vortex on map05, so seeing that put me on edge. The pitch black cyberdemon ambush on map06 was what really solidified my jumpiness, though. After two levels in a row ending with evil traps like that, I was expecting something similar in every level thereafter, though nothing else quite as severe as the map06 ambush occured in any of the later levels, IMO. Great use of tension putting those traps in the middle of the episode, they kept me wary long past the actual threat itself. I had to deal with mad lag in glboom+ on most of map08, I guess my laptop's shitty gpu wasn't cut out for running through those huge open areas in the middle of the city. Lag aside (and getting lost aside ;P), I think that's my favorite map in the set. I almost gave up on trying to figure out how to get at that secret BFG until I remembered those blue keycard bars in the basement. To be honest, I think I lucked out quite a bit. I'm not the most careful player so there were plenty of close calls. I was particularly inattentive / an idiot on map05; I wasted the radsuit and almost blew it having to go back through the lava unprotected. I was also very fortunate at how the one cyberdemon and the mastermind just before the end of map08 decided to infight while i was so close to death. Anyway, great use of eternal resources, thanks gaspe for the great design and fun adventure! Now that I know what to do on the last two big maps, I'm eager to revisit this wad at some point in the future and try for a better time. demo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m8giwie34k16zkr/ironman-mden-legher.zip?dl=1

    Haha. I was 100% sure there aren't any moderators here either. Now I am not so sure.

    Release Clean Up

    To be pedantic, the computer map item is an exception to this, iirc, at least in single player. They count for item percentage, but if there are multiple than one placed in a map, you can't pick up more than one. As rare as it would be to have two or more computer maps in a level, it would prevent the player from getting 100% items.

    Do you collect anything?

    I have a pretty good collection of fabrics -- enough to rival some smaller fabric shops. It's mostly wool, silk, and linen, or blends thereof. Plus some exotic and whackier stuff too. I'm actually running out of room for it all, I seem to accumulate it much faster than I use it.

    how often do you save?

    I'll only occasionally save if I need to step away from the game unexpectedly in the middle of a good run. Beyond that, what durian said applies. I appreciate both the gameplay and the level design more playing without saves. The same goes for keeping track of where I am in megawads, too. It's fresher to just warp to whatever level I had left off in.

    things YOU do in doom that annoy you

    When I'm playing keyboard only, and I decide to try to berserk punch everything, despite both my clumsy aim and better judgment.

    user Malinku was murdered

    Very sad, and I wish I had more to say. Malinku was great to chat with.

    Don't you just love it when...

    I don't remember which movie it was, but I had an old DVD that spoils the major plot twist by listing the chapter titles on the main page of the DVD menu.

    The UAC Then and Now

    I kinda prefer how in the original Doom manual story, it was actually the military doing all the crazy teleportation research that opens the portal to hell. The UAC were just running the moonbases for nuclear waste disposal or whatever, and letting the military conduct their secret experiments there.

    The Confessional Booth

    The other morning, I started working on a sewing project in my apartment without getting dressed. I eventually put on a nearby shirt just to use the pockets for my tools. A few hours later, I left to meet my lady for a lunch date. I threw a jacket over my shirt, and made it to the main lobby in my building before realizing I was still pantsless.

    Pure Love Thread

    Aside from the cliche stuff (the amazing people in my life, sex, etc), I really love slipping on my favorite thimble and sinking a needle and thread into some nice wool, linen, or silk cloth. I love sipping rum from a flask. I love waking up past noon. I love unbuttoning my shirt. I love realizing that some ideas in my head are wrong. Throwing them out lets me see the world differently, for the better.

    was the weapon res too high?

    Rather than humping walls, I think more playing time is spent enjoying the glorious pixelated scenery of the game at a distance. Wolf3D resolution weapons would clash much worse with the world assets at common gameplay distances I think.

    How many hours do you spend per week on the Internet?

    Heh, as little as possible. Ideally I browse much less than an hour per day at this point, though reading binges or the pressing need to research stuff still occur. I guess I just have enough stimulating people and projects in my life that the signal-to-noise ratio of the internet at large isn't good enough to keep my attention the way it used to. Probably ~5-15 hours per week?

    Doom Ringtones. Do you have one?

    The screaming from Ball of Hell is my alarm sound, if that counts for anything. Everyone hates it.
