  1. When you're having too much fun playtesting a boss instead of working on the last part of the map...

  2. That post limit lasts for 24 hours after you register. It expired about a half hour ago, so you should be able to post as much as you want now.

      Thank you very much, thought I was caught in a "circular basket of confusion'


      Much appreciated.....


  3. Pays $1,000 for something, expecting to get the money back sometime soon therafter, in a few weeks tops...


    Completely forgets about it...


    Gets it back over 2 years later...


    Better late than never, I guess.

  4. Flips through the TV channels...


    Finds nothing decent...


    Goes through the high numbered, never watched channels...


    Comes across chess boxing...



    1. Liberation


      Actually had to google chess boxing to make sure it was an actual thing. Wow, who knew?

  5. While fiddling with texture alignment tricks, I discovered something rather humorous, I don't plan on using it though. Someone could easily get the wrong idea from it. It was funny because I wasn't even trying to do that.

      Maybe if I make a jokewad I might.

  6. That feeling when you're having too much fun testing your project over the weekend to get much done with it.

  7. Testing...




    We can edit our status updates now. Also Linguica owns me.

  8. Well, hello there Mr. Norovirus. So good of you to come. It's been such a long time since your last visit.

  9. I just found out the hard way that SilverKey has been taken by Strife, so I had to rename it SilverKey1. The fun part is that for a brief time (before I fixed it), even when I had the silver key, I couldn't open any silver key doors.

  10. Last experiment failed. Reducing the damage and ammo use by half, but keeping the same speed didn't work very well. It ended up taking twice as long to kill an enemy than before, and that can be a major problem in rough battles.


    So let's try something different. Increase damage and ammo use for the other fire mode by 50%, but and keep the speed the same. This one is working out much better.

  11. Updating GZDoom Builder was a lot harder than it needed to be, but I finally managed to get it working again.

  12. Imagine my surprise to see a notification for a liked post from 10 years ago.

    1. 42PercentHealth


      Hey, sometimes I dig up old threads because they have useful info... Why not click the like button?

    2. Ichor


      heh, not complaining. It's just funny to see.

  13. Tried an experiment. Didn't go well, but I kind of expected how it would turn out. I just wanted to try it.


    Anyway, imagine if you had a projectile weapon that uses 2 of something. Now, imagine that same weapon doing half the damage, but only using 1 of the something instead of 2. But with the same fire rate. How would you like that? Me? I didn't, especially in faster paced maps where you want something dead sooner, so I changed it back to the way it way it was.

    1. KVELLER


      Maybe it'd be interesting to have both options available so you can choose how to proceed depending on the enemies in front of you.

  14. That moment when you discover a bug that went unnoticed for a very long time because the RNG associated with the script never selected that specific scenario after countless playtests.


    And it all came down to a '6' instead of '26' causing a specific texture to not update when needed.

      End of the world

    3. Ichor


      heh, actually it was easy to fix. It just went unnoticed for so long until I tested something else and it just happened to reveal itself this time around.

  15. That moment when you save after beating a rough area after repeated tries, only for a lone enemy that you missed to kill you a split second later.

      Something similar, clearing an entire open area after an hour of abundant crossfire, repeated tries, only to flip a switch that releases some archviles that start to undo your job, mostly reviving the worst monsters (revenants). Even worse, beating those archviles, feeling relieved and just when you thought "ok what's next" you're suddenly being covered in fire by one last archie that never showed earlier, and you see the available cover so freaking far away from you... Bonus, that archie reviving more revenants...

    3. Psyrus


      You save after beating a rough area after repeated tries...  and you realize you chose load instead.


      I'm guilty.

    4. Anidrex_1009


      Or in my case, fall to some lava pit with low health and insta-kill... crap.

  16. That awkward feeling when you start playing Doom again after playing a similar game with different controls for an extended period of time.

    1. Dragonfly


      I get that whever I go from a Quake game to (G)ZDoom - I start trying to circlejump and bunnyhop everywhere. :P

  17. I had a pizza today.


    It was delicious.


    I ate the whole thing.


    It had ham and bacon and pineapple.

      Pizza is amazing.

    3. Avoozl


      I don't have a problem with pineapple on a pizza although I usually prefer it on a hawaiian pizza, capcicum on the other hand I just can't stand on a pizza, same with onion too.

    4. Teivman


      You lucky bastard.

      Outside in corners of buildings.

      Where can you reliably find a spider web...?

      They just love to make webs right around eye level so that you'll get a nice surprise when you're walking to your car or to the bus in the morning when it's still dark.

      You know you've played too much Witcher when the first thing you think of when reading this is "you cruel bastard, what did the horse do to you?"

  19. It's nice when a nifty weapon works flawlessly.


    Not so much when the two previous nights are spent looking for the cause of the game freeze by what turns out to be a bad jump buried deep in a portion of decorate you completely forgot about.

    1. Not Jabba

      Not Jabba

      What port are you testing with? When I get a Decorate-related crash in ZDoom, I get a crash message that tells me the exact Decorate line where the error is (or at least where it starts), and then I can look up that line in Slade. It's super helpful.

    2. Not Jabba

      Not Jabba

      Although I guess you said freeze, not crash, so maybe that's why.

    3. Ichor


      Yeah, it froze because of a goto jump that didn't go to the right spot, causing a 0 delay loop. It took a while to track down the problem since there were no errors.

  20. Protip: Decorate works better if the actors are spelled right.

      cue the "Getting Too Tense" track...

      Remilia Scarlet

      At least you didn't get ghost chili in your eye.  Ask me how that feels...

    4. Slimz


      Too much spicy skeleton heads on your eyes?

  22. Good news: I adjusted the Heretic/Hexen font to be fixed width.


    Bad news: Spaces aren't.



  23. That moment when after over a half hour of testing and frustration, you finally realize that you put the value in the wrong argument slot of an ACS_Execute.

      Forgets single semicolon,

      entire code explodes...

      What are you working on?

  24. Rule 37: If it exists, you can play Doom on it.

      hey look, GRAYTALL!

      Lol on a pregnancy test?  That's hilarious!

      So this is what the cavemen were playing back then. Rocks must be so advanced.
