    The Doom pistol is great, actually

    Preferable to your fist, that's for certain. It's still useful for conserving shotgun shells when you don't have a chaingun yet and shells are in limited supply. Finishes off weakened enemies nicely too.

    Reached MAP18: Power Core of NOVA: The Birth, this wad aged better than I recall. Community sets nowadays generally have a much higher degree of polish, even with the aim of this megawad being to get newbie mappers in the door, there's a lot of good on display here. Can't say I'm much of an EvilNed fan though, certainly lives up to his name. Sewer levels and annoying fights.

    Unpopular Doom Opinions

    I don't think it's an unpopular opinion, more of a rant, but inconclusive rooms or switches that indicate nothing so you can retread areas you've already been to and see that nothing has changed, prompting you to go look up a walkthrough on doomwiki or a YT playthrough. This happens a little too often for my tastes, I do have a bad habit of missing small details, as often revealed in videos but I like to think I have pretty good spatial awareness (I don't get lost in Wolf3D) so it takes a special kind of fucking up on the mapper's part to completely lose the player. Like what the hell am I suppose to be doing now? I don't enjoy spending 10 minutes running the same places over and over just because it wasn't at all obvious what you're doing now. Being left hanging fucking sucks.

    Another "John Romero is about to make..." thread

    I can't wait for DARK INTERIOR.
  6. Gamma correction at 0.75 looks so good now, as do the brightmaps on the computer walls.

    Requiem's last ten maps were uh...not very good. Guess I only recently learned this megawad was technically released as a beta and they had trouble filling in slots. A shame, because the first 19 or so maps were so good and detailed. I beat Operation: Biowar recently and still enjoy it despite the fact it is way too easy and very short, but rather something end while the going's still good than drag on with mediocre map after mediocre map. I am now on Nova: The Birth, as my goal is to revisit it and Nova II: New Dawn before finally playing Nova III.

    Resumed Dark Souls Remastered after nearly a year of inactivity, I last left off at Anor Londo and it is quite the place to become reacquainted with the game lol. That said I'm addicted again.

    That's hilarious, I'm going through Requiem again rn after having not seen it in a little over a decade, reached MAP17 in a day, aged well, as did Memento Mori II altho I'd be hard pressed to call Requiem MM3 as it feels more it's own thing. I did MM2 prior after beating MM1 and liked it a lot more than I did a long time ago, prefer it to the original on almost every way. CC1 is the worst megawad I've played so far, I'm kind of astounded how awful it is and good chunk of the maps weren't even for the project in the first place, they simply didn't have enough maps to contribute for 32 slots. CC2 was honestly not that much better imho. I only like 3 and 4.

    Nearly done with Memento Mori 1, reached MAP28. I'll say having not seen this since 2009 or so the "white sky levels" were somewhat mixed but what was good was pretty great, the "red sky levels" halfway through however I found mostly unremarkable and unmemorable, with very few instances I cared for. That said the "blue sky levels" are pretty much all great or even just okay at worst. This megawad's aged well and I can see how Reverie was inspired in places, even a small detail such as getting a BFG very late (sans death exit on MAP12 in Reverie when you do get a BFG, you don't see one after that for a long time) and general abstract nature that doesn't conform to any one specific place, it's just Doom.
  11. congratulations on the release! 😁 will update my build when I get around to playing Memento Mori II

    Shamus Young passed away

    RIP to a mapping legend, and a great composer, portfolio may be on the light side but Doom City and Relive the Nightmare are must-plays IMHO. I don't think I ever played Slugfest however, if I did I don't remember, either way I'll be obligated to go through his mapping soon enough.

    Beat Reverie for Doom II, honestly a beautiful ending even if I knew about the story beforehand in the readme (it really doesn't ruin anything, it just makes more sense of why everything is surreal and gloomy in the levels), put me in a classic mood for its inspirations so I'm playing Memento Mori next, haven't seen it since 2009 or so, hopefully it's aged as well as I recall it.
  14. I am playing Reverie for Doom II, on MAP15: Blade Runner and may have found an issue. It is the bottom most middle, there are presumably shootable switches (marked with skulls), in addition to being stuck I am at a loss as to whether or not this is a bug. Pinging @valkiriforce for more context if possible (also I have no idea what to do or where to go after hitting the red switch). Off-topic edit: Figured out the red key problem, wasn't too obvious at first, just hope that slender section of the map is housing a secret and isn't mandatory to proceed.

    The worst movie you seen

    Let Me Make You a Martyr nearly 2 hours of shitty people doing shitty drugs that leads to a shitty ending, pretentious garbage

    What was your first purist/semi-purist source port?

    Boom v2.02 dated 10/10/99, I downloaded it in 2001-2002 and from thereon out it changed my Dooming, freeing me from the shackles that was Doom95. I feel old.
  17. This, International Heretic's brightmaps were really nice to see for example. I still think extended colors for messages would be cool (dark blue for one versus "7" that is much brighter) but I think I know why it's the way it is, the old menu system would need to be totally redesigned. You can get around default limitations anyway by supplementing alternate PLAYPALs and using new fonts for messages as their defaults can translate differently. E: What I mean, using the PSX Doom message font and picking 7 results in this look.
  18. I swear the only thing that keeps this from being THE greatest limit-removing boom-compatible source port is a gamma correction on par with Doom Retro and International Doom, I like bumping things down to 0.75, other than that I'll always simp for Woof! because I play everything in it now that doesn't require a specific port to operate. @fabian @rfomin Thanks for being absolute G's in this community.

    Tearing through Hexen on International Hexen, tfw 3 hours in on a Cleric game and I'm already at Necropolis. This game used to feel so long.

    I have just begun The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and am already hooked. The only other Zelda I've played and beaten was the original NES title.
  21. It overrides anything I change to black, is this a bug? I'm using the 64-bit version and trying to modify Heretic's colors.

    Finally beat TNP, actually a very short game. The puzzle on Hook Star Nuclear Works completely threw me off without a walkthrough, and it's mandatory to see River City Park and Mastamall. I didn't understand the puzzle at the beginning of the Dome either. I highly recommend this game to Raven fans if they've never played it before, but it is a bit on the mediocre side. Now I'm playing Heretic for the gazillionth time again, but using International Heretic for the first time.

    Finished Doom 64 for Doom II, started Reverie, reached MAP05, so far me likey, you'd think the WAD was from 1997 but it was released in 2011.

    Take No Prisoners with some rigging to get it running on Win10. I haven't played, let alone ever beat this relatively unknown top-down shooter Raven title since I'm guessing 2003 or 2004. Never played it on Commando (default, hard mode) difficulty either so that's been an interesting experience so far. Still pretty fun, good music albeit tracks are way too short (2 min on average) given you can be on a level for up to 20 minutes sometimes. Enemies are spongy and dish out the pain, especially with certain weapons, but the player doesn't hold a lot of ammo for any of their guns and you're often facing mobs of any given enemy type, so combat can feel stilted as you unload round after round into a single person, or creature, or cyborg, this also applies to throwables like grenades which aren't as effective as they should be, unless it's implosion grenades. Also sometimes it can be difficult to determine where you're suppose to go or do next since the levels can be played in almost any order as level exits typically offer up to two areas to choose from, add in some of Raven's less-than-optimal solutions to problem solving and you got trial and error progression sprinkled throughout. Very much a PC game for the time it was released, with the assorted jank like ladders and unforgiving fall damage, and lopsided balance in some of the fights, but it's absolutely brimming with personality and charm, with good sound design and occasionally cool lighting, pretty gory too with big comical blood spurts upon enemy deaths and you can destroy things in the environment to similarly satisfying degree.

    What is the best SC-55 soundfont?

    I'm using SC-55 Patch93.sf2 for my Roland fix and I'd say it's pretty damn serviceable, Duke Nukem 3D sounds great with it as does Doom naturally. Is there a superior version? I got mine along other soundfonts from @Doomkid's soundfont collection thread.
