    Having Problems with GzDoom Sound...

    sorry for bumping this thread, but i've been having the same issue here and i have no idea how to fix it. i'm using a headphone amp with a Scarlett 2i4 and i've turned spatial audio off for the device i'm using and it doesn't seem to do anything.
  3. i've actually finished my map 15 submission since some time now. i haven't made it public since there were some issues with it that i asked Cammy for help to try and fix.
  4. i don't know what offers is given to everyone, but when i was involved in one project, there was a choice between getting a challenge coin, gift card (only for US residents) and a wire transfer. i chose the coin because i thought it was the neater option overall, the wire transfer required a lot of legal paperwork to go through. given the value of the gift card and wire transfer, i'd imagine the value of "just" the coin would potentially be quite high if you were deciding to sell it.

    What age did you start DOOM?

    played the shareware on a shovelware disc when i was around 4 years old or so. i wasn't actually allowed to play the game back then, but i eventually convinced my parents that playing the game had no ill effects on me. i was instantly hooked and got to play other FPS games back then like Dark Forces 1 and 2, Quake 2 and Unreal; i got the Doom Collector's Edition a few years after that. i didn't actually start playing mods for the game until around 2007-2008 though.

    Doomworld Musicians (ALL of you) - Tell Us Of Your Gear!

    i forgot to mention that i also have a pair of Yamaha HS7 speakers as well, but i don't use them for music production due to not having a proper treated room, and i live in an apartment, so my neighbors would probably not appreciate it.

    Doomworld Musicians (ALL of you) - Tell Us Of Your Gear!

    the only "instrument" i really own is a Roland SC-55 mk2. i haven't used it in any of my productions yet because while i have a USB-MIDI cable, i don't have any audio cables to hook it up yet. equipment... i'm using some Sennheiser HD600 headphones connected to an Atom amp hooked up to my Scarlett 4i4. i used to use my Sennheiser HD 25-1 II without an amp, but the HD600 are much better for music production. i don't own a mic and i don't exactly have the soundspace to properly use one. for DAW and MIDI productions, i've always stuck with FL Studio. it's not the best for MIDI work but it does the job decently enough. i've used it for over 10 years and it's treated me well. when i bought the software i got the version with all the then native plugins included, so whatever the producer edition had at the time. realistically, though, i've only really used Synth1 and 3xosc with a bit of T-Force Alpha Plus on the side. and a bunch of samples from wherever the heck i got them from.
  8. hey everyone! just in time for Bandcamp Friday, i released a liquid dnb remix of a song that i first released six years ago! consider giving it a listen if you like that sort of thing, and maybe drop a dollar this Bandcamp Friday if you want to! get the album here! Youtube stream coming later today!
  9. i guess the doom 2016 section here will get a different description now.

    Most Excruciating Gaming Accomplishments?

    getting all of the platinum relics in the Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy was really hard to do. a good portion of them aren't too bad to get, but then you hit some levels that are just completely soul destroying to finish. specifically, Stormy Ascent is absolute hell to do, requiring nearly perfect memorisation to finish, taking 3 real life minutes to finish, and having a bullshit RNG part at the end requiring bouncing on three birds to cross a gap that is very hard to predict how to get across safely, and you can't take your time and have to blindly jump and hope you leaped at the right time, or else do the entire thing over again. it currently holds the record of "angriest i've ever been at a video game" and i don't recommend doing this unless you're very determined to see it through or incredibly stubborn (like me). edit: i forgot to mention that Stormy Ascent alone took me 3 actual hours to complete. 3 hours of painstaking memorisation and patience-testing until i finally did it.

    Freedoom ost good or bad

    i really ought to update my track that's in this project at some point. i made map29's track a very long time ago and it could do with some restructuring and improvements.

    Classic Doom community is the most wholesome community ever

    out of the various forums i've been a part of, the doom ones has not only proven to be the most long-lasting, but also the most encouraging to newcomers and free of the bullshit that large forums tend to congregate. one forum i met some of my best and most long-lasting friends at, and when it grew bigger, it generally took a turn for the worse and become less appealing to be around. we then started to drift off towards our own created forums (with blackjack and hookers! :P), which also we drifted off from as it eventually shut down, turning into a Discord group which, also, got taken down, mostly just leaving us with our friendship ties that we had made (and another, signficantly less active Discord group). another forum was just a giant mess the second that i entered it, full of hostile people that were going at different sub-communities within the community. i trust it is no different now than when i left it. this forum meanwhile, and the zdoom forums, has had its fair share of bad apples and drama throughout the years, but it's never dwelled on those things, always striving to remove those apples, and curb drama, offensive content and low-effort posting. you get the sensation that these places grew up with the members, getting more mature and hospitable in general. i can't think of a single reason that i'd want to leave this community behind, the only thing holding me back being my interest in other games for the time being, but i always seem to find myself gravitating back towards here with regular intervals.
  13. Excalibur from Eternal Doom. i still don't know how to beat all of it without looking up the walkthrough on the Doom Wiki. i can sort of fumble through the later Bob Evans and Jim Flynn maps, but not this one. map29 from CC1 too. it stopped me dead in my tracks the first time i got to it.
