    Reminds me of Scott Manley's daughter flying her first gank in EVE. :-)

    Ah, but how is the little one at Doom? (Back when Doom was young, a friend of mine's little brother... well, his first words weren't "kill the tomato!", but he came pretty close.)

    The Doom Confessional Booth

    I know what you mean but I think where I come from that's a bug, even if it's buggy by design.

    Mind you, if a WAD can mess with a source port's configuration, that's a bug in the source port. Has this behaviour been confirmed?

    I think you may have seen one or both of these before; these stoaty new forums make it tricky to check. However, I thought I should try to get it back to actual photos of actual us: And here's a definitely new to Doomworld one, but fair warning, it's me having just broken my jaw, blood and all:

    Does it really glow like that (and, followup question, isn't that really annoying)? I got a cheap second-hand one; I find they don't last forever, so I don't want a pricey one...

    Things about Doom you just found out

    I don't think it remotely comes across that way if one reads Zokum's second paragraph, which explains the situation clearly. The oddest story I heard about something like that is that BBC Elite (1984) has such weird keys because they're near each other in the keyboard lookup table and that saves a bit.

    Does that need to be argued? No-one is suggesting it's not the case, and it seems rather self-evident.

    Why does Florida... I mean, it was mostly all made up by the Victorians anyway, but why does Florida have one? It's not even on the side of America that was invaded first.

    I feel much the same, but... you say you're a "less than average player", but I really am. I might have been playing in 1993, but I haven't been playing steadily since 1993... and I detest mid-level saving. I don't have a prayer of doing most modern maps on UV, and I kind of have to suck it up. I did Sunlust on ITYTD... well, until MAP29, when I was fed up.
  11. Oh, yes. That one in Mount Erebus was a sod; the whole map was full of mysteries.
  12. I can see why people who started with Doom 2 might have got stuck there, and I suppose also someone might have played Doom 1 but never found the secret area on E1M2 (once you're in there, it's pretty hard not to shoot the G1 in passing and get the idea in your head).

    I don't see why (of course fun is highly subjective, yes); _I_ think they're fun played saveless. E1-3 are almost entirely devoid of the sort of deathtrap that goes hand in hand with quicksaving; one or two inescapable goo pits, a handful of slow crushers and the rising floor in E2M4.

    The original Doom doesn't have an e4. This is not mere pedantry, telling you something you already know; if Skeletonpatch hasn't played the original Doom all the way through, they shouldn't be put off by e4. e1-3 are fine without in-level saving; I've always thought they were designed without quicksaving in mind.

    Today I learned that some source ports have an instant death sector type.
