    Doom 3 Old Monster Design

    The only redesigns I never really liked were the Cacodemons and lost souls. The old Cacodemons were kind of huge and imposing, but the new ones are shrunken and look a little like demonic balloons. And if they could replace all the lost souls with the classic-styled ones from Resurrection of Evil, I wouldn't mind. I think the Revenant would have been creepier if it didn't have transparent skin and was just held together with some stringy muscles or something. My last gripe is that not enough demons have hooves, horns, or spikes sticking out of them (like the original imp). Those features seem to be reserved to the Cyberdemon and Guardian. I think that if Id could have taken the new Hell Knight, made his skin kind of pinkish, and slapped on some horns to add a Baron of Hell to the Doom 3 roster that would have been awesome.

    Engine preference

    Since my Doomsday engine (1.8.6, I don't use the newer versions) has been bugging out on me, I've been trying out other ones, including ZDoom and PrBoom, but I have to say that Doomsday's still my favorite. The other source ports I've tried all have issues that Doomsday didn't have, like HOM effects and stuff.

I'm exasperated. Update: I had thought that the missing temp WAD was related to the segfault problem, but it isn't. When I play jdoom.exe regularly (not as the testing engine for db2) and start a new game it still gives me a segfault without the missing WAD error.

    DB2 Testing Segmentation Violations

    Thanks for the tips guys. I haven't had much time to mess around with it the past day or so, but I did try uninstalling 1.8.6 (well, kind of just deleting) from my G drive, and reinstalling it in my C drive. It didn't fix the problem, but doomsday gave me a different error when I tried to run it, something about a buffer overrun error, and having to terminate the program. I looked it up, and I think what's happening is doomsday is creating a temporary WAD in my temp drive, and when it comes back to the file, Window's data execution prevention (DEP) program is terminating doomsday before it creates a buffer overrun. At least, that's my theory from reading the wikipedia article. If this is helpful in solving the problem, let me know.
  5. It's been a couple of months since I last posted, but I'm in need of assistance once again. I am using the most recent version of DB2, and am using my old copy of Doomsday 1.8.6 to test maps, because when I try to use 1.9.7 it's really laggy and takes forever to load. I am also using a different computer. The new problem I am having is that any WAD I try to test (Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II, Plutonia/TNT, The Master Levels, Maximum DOOM, my own custom WADs) all quit right after starting up with a "segmentation violation". After every test, doomsday.out will contain a message like this: "W_AddFile: ERROR: T:\Temp\Administrator\byf4bau4\9is0mc2h.wad not found!" All the more puzzling is that I've made one small test WAD since moving to this new machine that will sometimes actually work, but when I exit back out to DB2 and load a different WAD that gives me a segment violation, if I go back to this test WAD, it will then give me a segmentation violation error too. I know that segmentation violations can be caused by hundreds of different issues and that this is an open-ended problem, but I would appreciate any tips on where to start looking to fix this problem.

    The Doom Confessional Booth

    I've played all the way through Marathon: Durandal. But I've never properly beat DOOM. Or DOOM II. Or the Master Levels for DOOM II. Or No Rest for the Living. Or the Plutonia Experiment. Or TNT Evilution. Or DOOM 3. Or DOOM 3: Ressurection of Evil. And the only custom WADs I've ever played were from this old D!Zone disc I had in my basement. I never beat any of those, either. In fact, the only reason I registered to this forum is because I've started making my own WADs.

    Glitches in Doom Builder 2 Testing

    Okay. Thanks everybody.

    Doom II's level design is antiquated

    I'm a newer gamer myself, and I think some of you are being too hard on modern games. I've seen a couple complaints about how modern games have too many cutscenes. I don't think I've yet played a newer game where there was a cutscene where it shouldn't have been. It just seems to me that over the years shooting games have moved their focus from complete total fragfests to be more focused on plot. For example: When I've played through DOOM II, I know it has a story and all, but I never really felt like I was fighting on earth and saving humanity. Halo, on the other hand, has a good plot and intricate backstory that makes it feel like your saving humanity from an alien onslaught. Reach, particularly, has some touching cutscenes. And for all of you who say that modern games are overly linear and don't give you the sense of hard-earned success from finding all the secrets, talk to me when you've found every last datapad in Halo Reach. There are still some good modern games.

    Glitches in Doom Builder 2 Testing

    Thanks, Boris! I tried the concave sector, and it worked. Then I tried replicating that second glitch, and it didn't happen, either. I'm not sure what caused that, but I glad it's gone. I guess this thread can be closed now, but before it is, can you give me a quick explanation of why single sector maps can't be convex? I'd like to know just out of curiosity.
  10. I'm relatively new to making custom maps with editors, but I was doing pretty well up until yesterday, when I started getting these strange glitches when trying to test maps. I'm editing with doom builder 2 and I'm using the jDoom/Doomsday engine for testing. I've confirmed that the glitches only seem to happen in the two following scenarios: - if I create a single sector, place a start point in it and try to test the map, it will immeadiately crash with a "segmentation violation" error. Also, in doomsday out it says "W_AddFile: ERROR: T:\Administrator\Temp\59brehhd\mshdwrxo.wad not found!". however, if I create a map with more than one sector,it at least loads and I can play it. That being said, - if I create a sector and then create another sector within the first that shares one or more of the first's linedefs, it makes some textures disappear. Generally it seems to be the wall and some of the floor next to where the two sectors share a linedef. You'll either just see the sky through where the wall and floor used to be or get a HOM effect. (Also, the map looks fine when viewed through doom builder's 3D editing mode.) This has completely baffled me as everything was working fine for about a week. I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can shed some light on this.
