  1. What the heck happened to Doom Touch/D Touch??

    I think Delta Touch is a big improvement over ol' D-Touch, but I have a question about Delta Touch's source code, @beloko: A long time ago, I remember trying to compile D-Touch so I could have a modified version that worked with my game's modified GZDoom source code, but even after getting the SDK and Android Studio then trying to build it, it never worked. Can't remember what error appeared. Another person's D-Touch mod, GZDoom-Android, was built successfully but then the app would stop working every time I tried to start my game. However, how easy is it to build Delta Touch into an app compared to D-Touch? I'm not doing this to release a free Delta Touch, but rather because I modified things in my GZDoom source code such as certain polyobjects being non-solid, which would all be solid in Delta Touch, breaking a feature of my game, so building my own version of the app intended just to run my game would be a good idea. (I wouldn't know programming language enough to disable all non-GZDoom source ports to make it not be usable as a Delta Touch replacement, though.)
  2. When i started making maps for Doom, I used Doom Builder but the laptop I was using was so outdated that it couldn't use 3D mode so my maps were very simple and had many problems, such as sky textures on walls, missing floors, and while sectors bleeding to the bottom of the screen like slime trails. I didn't know about source ports at the time (though later I started using ZDoom) so I just used Doom95, having to deal with the game crashing for seemingly no reason when I added the smallest things to some of my maps. A lot of the maps were literally just corridors with no height changes and barely any doors as I had no clue how to make them. Good thing I eventually got better laptops and started mapping for ZDoom after that! Here's pictures of some of this bad level design I think I first made.
  3. It's become a ghost town in this thread (and hopefully ZDoom Forums doesn't become the same thing), but I'm going to try reviving this thread again for the newest version, version 1.9! A lot has changed since 1.8, but now I keep a list of things I change between versions so the full list can be read on GitHub. The most notable changes done are... UPDATES A new area, ARENA1, was added. This is the first map in the "wave-based arena" mode, inspired by Hulk's "Challenge Mode" rooftop area. Performing a Drop Dash over an area transition no longer makes Xane's sword lock up when attempting a Sword Beam on the ground. Xane's claw now pulls Xane up to whatever's above the spot it attached to. This can be seen in 1-2 near the end of the area. Four "mods" are now supported, like the "low-end" mod that changes behavior slightly; Skyboxes don't render and "render culling"/draw distance is enabled if no setting is set previously. To enable a mod, put it in the same folder as the game. A new sky was added, the moving clouds/stormy sky. It's the first animated sky in the game, with 96 frames of four cloud layers scrolling at different speeds. To see it on any level, type the command changesky STORM_01 in the console. Signs were added to replace some tutorials. Tutorials for enemies and Special Stages won't be converted to this, though in the future signs will disappear if the tutorial it mentions has been already seen or if tutorials are disabled. SCREENSHOTS DOWNLOADS I don't know why Travis isn't giving me MacOS and Ubuntu builds, but due to that, they aren't up to date. Windows is as it's the operating system I use. If you want to use my settings, remove the "!" from !Settings.ini in the compiled Windows build download. Anyways, here's the 64-bit Windows build, game data, and The X Site's MMA page. Have fun...if anyone plays the game!
  4. I mainly like Windows 7 and in my opinion the problems mainly started with Windows 8 so here's three things I love and hate about modem Windows versions. LOVE Being able to search from the Start Menu when possible. I'm currently stuck with Windows XP for a couple more days and I keep accidentally making the Control Panel open when I open the Start Menu and type "CMD". Snipping Tool. XP doesn't seem to have the tool that lets me quickly crop part of the screen and paste it into conversations. Aero Snap. I find myself trying to drag a window to the side or the top of the even only to not see it automatically cover half of the screen or maximize the window in XP. Even if they removed Aero Glass, at least Microsoft kept the useful snapping behavior. HATE They removed a lot of customization after Windows 7. Colors? Gone. Ability to choose the classic theme? Gone, stuck with ugly single-color title bars. They also removed Aero Glass, which is why I didn't include it in the "like" section above as I liked Aero Glass! Mobile apps are where they don't belong. Microsoft, starting with Windows 8, felt they needed to shove mobile apps onto a desktop operating system. Said apps on mobile devices would usually lack features proper programs or even websites would have. Desktop Window Manager. It was nice back when there was proper “glass” you could use on all windows as DWM powered the beautiful effects, but nowadays I'd like for DWM to stop using the GPU as the main cool thing it powered no longer exists. After a big update Adobe Premiere Pro would do old-school wipe screen redraws, making it a chore to edit text and videos, and guess what process' GPU usage shot to 100% every time? DWM! Windows 7 didn't make that happen when I edited videos on it!
  5. Is your picture Zero Suit Samus with a Metroid on her head? She has a cute face in this picture if so.

      This video was on youtube for a while, don't know why it was removed, I downloaded it though and made some animations https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/597426

  6. The Children's Part of Youtube

    @Neurosis The CrazyTalk Animator program gets my attention, as I've seen evidence that the Twilight Sparkle design I showed in my post may be animated in that program. For one, she appeared in a picture showing how many different "peeing through a bathroom wall" videos were made. She can be seen at the upper-left corner here. Additionally, characters and objects held by them in that series of videos sometimes look pixelated when zoomed in on, and CrazyTalk Animator mainly accept image file formats, which can't be coincidence. I wonder if that Twilight Sparkle design is on their marketplace or something; I've looked through many pages of actors and couldn't find her, so they must've shared her design with another person to make the video in that picture separate from the video series the design appears in. Basically, I wonder if anyone can find that design. I'd probably try out this program if I got that design. I bet it's on some separate website from the official marketplace for CrazyTalk Animator. Other than that problem which worries me, it is dumb what they do in the videos. They could just make innocent stories or things like what the children's shows they're taking characters from do, but they instead make the characters behave incorrect from how they would canonically behave and introduce things that really don't need to be there.
  7. The Children's Part of Youtube

    To the first post, thanks for linking to that subreddit and giving a name for this weird thing on YouTube; I read on Medium about it but wanted to know more, and that's what I got! I fall for cute things so this ElsaGate series bootleg of Twilight Sparkle got my attention. This bootleg series has some of the weird things ElsaGate videos are known for, most commonly Twilight Sparkle fighting other characters. The thumbnails usually lie about what's actually in the video, in one case showing "3:1 = FUCK" on a chalkboard. That would've been a funny scene, even if really inappropriate, but that never appeared in the video! Bad news is now this series is recommended to me on YouTube! Well, I'd prefer this over other ElsaGate videos any day!
  8. Reminds me of how I eat near my laptop. It sometimes messes up the touchpad and the keyboard becomes harder to type words without letters missing. Any horror stories from me? I'm not sure if anything would count as I haven't encountered anything bad like ransomware (though I fear I will when looking for pirated software), and although once I set a password on my desktop computer and forgot it, it wasn't a horror story as I still had a laptop to use until I used Ubuntu to remove the password, I believe.
  9. What the heck happened to Doom Touch/D Touch??

    So, Delta-Touch is now further in development… Now I await GZDoom-Android to update so I'd have a base for me TC's Android version. (Otherwise, I'd have to tell people to get Delta-Touch and somehow add my game as three PWADs…) I still like D-Touch and Delta-Touch but I don't play the original Doom now, only working on my TC.
  10. Time to bump this topic! Although the first post was updated, that doesn't encourage anyone to check out the topic itself. CHANGES I don't know all of what I changed since the last update, but the biggest change was that the version of GZDoom MMA uses is now nearly up-to-date, adding nice new effects like shadowmaps, which I have on by default. Also, while I removed ZDoom's built-in options menu before, I restored it as it has a lot of useful settings to change. Also, Xane's getting more attention with his new additions such as the Drop Dash, performed by double-tapping the "use" key in mid-air. He also has his own incomplete path through the end of 1-1 which teaches the player how to use his special abilities if tutorials are enabled. Screenshots
  11. Post your wallpaper - 2017 Edition

    Well, this is embarrassing... (click for original picture) (Also, about the "-200" error in the first post: It seems DW has a 1MB per file size limit that you aren't told about, and any "failed files" stick and count towards your 5MB limit until you refresh the page, but I don't know what admin to tell about this problem and making a topic would probably be pointless. Maybe @Linguica?)
  12. So, how old are you ?

    Currently 22. Although I may have thought as a child incorrectly that becoming an adult'd be a good thing, of course, it's lies...
  13. What the heck happened to Doom Touch/D Touch??

    That'll work. When Delta-Touch is released, @beloko, tell the person who made GZDoom-Android to update it to your new version. That last part specifically so you could warn them not to do whatever made their app very unstable compared to D-Touch's normal version which rarely if ever would crash to the home screen. I just hope to be able to comple and release my own version for free. No offense, but I wouldn't want to tell them they have to purchase a separate port. Of course, I'd be interested in Delta-Touch myself.
  14. What the heck happened to Doom Touch/D Touch??

    I guess I should've tried that when D-Touch would "crash" back to its menu. Basically, there's two different behaviors: D-TOUCH: When it fails to start an IWAD for any reason, it returns to the IWAD/source port selection menu. GZDOOM-ANDROID: When it tried anything relating to actually playing a game, it would bring up Android's "app stopped working" dialog. (Again, hoping that's fixed someday so Mary's Magical Adventure can have an Android version.)
  15. What the heck happened to Doom Touch/D Touch??

    This is good, D-Touch is getting updated to Delta-Touch! Some things I wonder from when I tried to get my game running on Android: When I modified my game to work with D-Touch in the past, I think it could run in it, but GZDoom-Android would crash with no error. Not sure if D-Touch skips indicating if any "script errors" occur during startup, but if it didn't, has that been fixed? I would still like to be able to use GZDoom-Android (or make it easy to disable the non-GZDoom source ports in Delta-Touch's source) so I could make my game/TC playable on Android. I purchased D-Touch on Amazon, so will something be given that allows me to move over to Delta-Touch easily?
