  1. honestly, i don't even remember at this point. the track i cobbled together for the project was kind of garbo, and whatever music i decided to offer back then probably sucked in hindsight.
  2. i also contributed one track to this project. i don't know if anyone put it to use, though; i offered to put in some more tracks, but they got rejected on the grounds that they were originally composed for Doom, and not Freedoom.
  3. speaking of Hais Temple, isn't part of the melody at the beginning from a module track that was in Massmouth 2? i instantly recognized it when that part was playing. also while i'm at it, anyone else noticed the Heretic track in Twilight Massacre is slower than the original track? i guess it must've been fudged up in a conversion process at some point.
  4. @HexenMapper oh i see, you're using the event editor for that. what if i wanted to use automation clips for pitch-bending and the like? is there a way to make the curves more coarse there?
  5. i don't know. it seems like a lot of posts with a disproportionately high amount of likes are tied to ones that are either funny or stating the obvious, which feels like it incentives posting funny zingers over actual quality content.
  6. hey @HexenMapper, if i wanted to make the automation in my projects take up less file-size space, how do i edit the curves to be less smooth, but functioning like i want them to?
  7. weird. i do agree they look more like mummies than golems, but strange that the manual doesn't reflect that.
  8. they're not actually mummies; they're golems, which explains them being so ripped. this fan-drawing accentuates it a lot better:
  9. oh, but see, "cute" doesn't belong in a Doom forum. everything needs to be filled with angst, murder, and the urge to rape your mother, otherwise you don't fit into the crowd.
  10. posting to annoy people further with my shitty avatar choices.
  11. ahaha, the "bad music" argument existed all the way back then, too. :D
  12. actually, that's something that bothers me in a couple Doom PWADs; this mentality that the soundtrack should be all metal, or at least high-energy all the time. i feel like Doom works better with more atmospheric and calm tracks, and cramming whatever headbanger you want into the game makes for a worse listening experience (why do you think the metal music in Doom is so subdued?) not even only metal music has this effect on me, i think putting these Japanese video-game songs that obviously came from things like shmups fits horribly too, and just stresses the crap out of me. Doom 4's soundtrack is much better tempered in that respect. most of the music is pumped up, but it's not a total onslaught of chaos all the time. it has its atmospheric interludes to ease the tension when it needs to, though with the higher focus on combat, it doesn't detract from what it needs to do. i feel it's able to stay hectic, while at the same time make you stay focused enough to proceed with the encounters, which i find to be a pretty remarkable accomplishment.
  13. Do you draw your forum avatars yourself? You always have quite cute ones.

      aha, no, i just commission them from artists. :P this particular one was a gift from a friend though.

  14. my mouse wheel stopped working on this site for some reason just now. i can't scroll at all here, it only works when i press the middle mouse button and scroll that way, or drag the slider to the right.
