Everything posted by Grazza

  1. This is the continuation of the "Post your Doom picture!" thread, which was the longest in the forum's history and had become so large that the forum software was straining under its weight. The topic is simple: if you have any interesting Doom images, post them here. You may post screenshots of wads in progress if you wish. Thumbnails are a good idea if you want to link to a bigger image. Most of the main image-uploading sites provide thumbnails that have a similar file-name to the image itself. For tinypic.com, the thumbnail image has "_th" added before the file extension. For imageshack, you add ".th" (so a jpg filename would end ".th.jpg"), and for imgur.com, you add "s" for a small thumbnail or "m" for it to be medium sized. For photobucket, add "th_" at the start of the file-name. For minus.com, add "_e" before the file extension.

    The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

    Guys, this isn't what this thread is for. It's to ask for help with finding wads that you know exist but can't find. It has served that very useful purpose for several years, and it will cease to do so if it gets too diluted with off-topic general discussion. Why? Because those people with a wide knowledge of Doom wads and an ability to dig them out will stop bothering to scan the thread.

    Chocolate Doom

    This post contains detailed information. As you can see, there are only a handful of demos where the magic number is relevant, out of the tens of thousands of recorded demos. Note that it is only a small subset of the demos that feature a spechits overflow (itself a small portion of all demos) where it is relevant. IOW: ignore it unless you get a mysteriously desynching demo. Even then, there are many more likely explanations to consider (e.g. wrong wad version) before assuming it is to do with this. Well, that's kind of the wrong way round, as Prb+ was the project that investigated this problem and found a workaround. Vanilla (and Doom-plus) can't [edit: that should read "can't be guaranteed to"] play these demos back unless it is running under the same OS. It isn't revelant to Boom or MBF at all.

    Best/Worst maps in TNT

    I pretty much just enjoyed playing Evilution but without feeling the need to replay it much thereafter. Few real highlights or lowlights, but the least fun were probably those sprawling disjointed maps that just didn't know when to end. You know which ones you are. :p The most forgettable were the rather trivial ones where you can just run to the exit without even needing to execute any tricks or encountering much resistance. And they know which ones they are too!

    Getting annoyed by some words

    How about people not just failing to understand the meaning of the words "objective" and "subjective" but actually getting them completely the wrong way around?

    How to properly improve layout skills?

    Doors are good. They help the player produce and control infighting and so generate more gameplay options. Particularly for Tyson.

    I held off on watching Enterprise for years (the trailers didn't make it look very appealing, and I guess I was hoping that after Voyager they'd jump to the 29th century rather than do the "prequel" thing), but when I gave it a go on Netflix, found it to be OK for the first two seasons, and actually rather good by season 3 (longer and better story arcs). So if you stick with it, you might find it rewarding.

    Good stuff. The sort of thing they might have at the Walker Art Center - when they are not having more minimalist works such as "empty frame" or "string across a corner of a room". Anyway, have some beer photography.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    I suppose it is logical to put more barrels in E1 since you don't get much in the way of big weapons. In the later episodes you are more capable of blasting enemies out of the way by direct means, and accidental barrel explosions are more likely to be a hindrance to the player.

    My wife bid on some items from the show that were being auctioned, and "won" three of them: * Oleg's leather jacket * Some kind of sign in Russian * Something else I don't know if the mail robot was for sale. Beep beep beep.

    Doom as operating system on a floppy disk

    I'd forgotten those things existed. They were great. Really wished they had caught on and that type of technology been developed further.
  18. Reminds me of the time when I made a post that was the same as the text that shows up when a user on your Ignore list posts. At least one person clicked on what they thought was the "unignore" link.

    There were these three pencils that went into a brothel. The madame looked them over and told the HB that it would be twenty quid. The 2H would have to pay thirty quid. Wear and tear, you know. Then she turned to the pop-a-point. "Sorry, we don't serve your kind here". Shocked, the pop-a-point started to explain how he never needed sharpening and was completely mess-free, but the madame interrupted him to explain: "You can't get a rubber on a pop-a-point".

    I rewatched Continuum and The Americans (start to finish, as they have both ended). I'm currently rewatching Travelers (which has a third season on the way). Yeah, not much new stuff worth watching at present. I'm sort of watching Black Mirror, but with each one a standalone self-contained story, it's a bit of a mixed bag.

    Suggestion to the Doom Speedrunning community

    I assume he means: "UV Tyson without 100%" = UV Speed using only weapons 1 and 2 "NM Tyson" = NM Speed but using only weapons 1 and 2 (there could also be the additional requirement to achieve at least 100% kills - akin to a Respawn demo) Otherwise, I am not sure what the intent is. The former would be like a UV Speed or a UV Pacifist on many maps, but would be distinctive on others. The latter depends on whether there is a kills requirement, but would probably feature a lot of setting up infights and watching from a safe distance. I'm guessing that in the "hitscan only" category you can use the BFG as long as the fireball doesn't hit anything. It's true that DDQ-style per-level segmented runs have got a raw deal due to them being lumped in with ones with full TAS usage. Kind of a shame. AFAIK the only way to have such runs where the levels can be worked on independently (rather than sequentially) is via TASMBF, which limits the extent to which it could be a team effort. I wonder what ZM's D2/Pl/TNT movie times would be if he could record each level normally but separately.
  22. You mean this? While we're on the topic, let's not forget this one.

    Wads that feature time travel?

    The whole Doomiverse is only about two miles across before it wraps around in the void (max speed is 92680 units in one gametic). So no teleport can be faster than the speed of light. I'm not taking height differences into account, but that's not going to push it over the edge. In any case, any object that exists travels in time. Forwards, that is. On the original topic, I'll refer you to my answer here:
  24. I wasn't a Riker fan myself; he was a tool af. Actually I found all the characters in TNG to be awful (apart from Spot, the cat). Voyager and Enterprise were more than watchable though.

    Small apology to Doomworld

    OK, so we have somewhere between this: and this. :p
