  1. PrBoom-Plus, ver.

    Conversely for many of us the first FPS we played a lot of was hard-capped to 35 fps. :-) (FTAOD, I'm kidding; of course speed improvements are always a good thing if only to handle the most extreme cases of monster count and geometry...)
  2. Things about Doom you just found out

    A while back I put in a patch to prboom-plus to optionally colour the HUD / status bar armour number based on quality not amount, but it seems to have got lost somewhere.
  3. Things about Doom you just found out

    I find this easy to remember because Simon the Cyberdemon would have been much easier to beat if you could just splatter him over the landscape with the BFG. Also interestingly the chainsaw is quite hard to find in E3.
  4. Things about Doom you just found out

    Oh, god, I wish we'd known about this in 1994. I'm not saying it would have magically made all our levels good but a lot of dodgy texture alignment and suchlike was just because the edit/test cycle was so slow...
  5. The Doom Confessional Booth

    I've been playing since 1993 and I doubt I even have ten hours in the Containment Area.
  6. Things about Doom you just found out

    Found it! It's after the crate room full of pinkbeasts, a balcony above where you go to invulnerably berserk punch a baron and two tomatoes. I think Avoozl's renderer just makes it a bit darker.

    In the ID levels, isn't it always bright? It looks odd in Avoozl's screenshot because the lighting level is low.

    Coo, my lists for mapping were more: rooms textures monsters and maybe some ammo and stuff ... mind you, it was 1994.

    Everyone knows the true doomer cannot look up or down anyway. If I want to see my feet I have to sit down and squeeze them up into my field of view.

    This is why the Bible image is unacceptable.

    Romero's always had long hair, I think, so it's just emulating him. Don't look at me, though, I've been somewhere between a buzzcut and an inch of hair forever. :-)

    Album here. This was a few years ago, when our Christmas cakes started to get ambitious.

    Even on low detail - it must have been pretty zippy for a 386/25. Aha, it's an https://deskthority.net/wiki/Commodore_KPQ-E99YC - an odd looking beast in that it's exactly the same _shape_ as a Model M.

    I'm surprised you could play fullscreen on a 386/25. (And is that God's keyboard, the IBM Model M, you are using?)

    I know what you mean but I've not really felt the need with the weapon colours for high/medium/low ammo.
