  1. Heretic isn't abandonware just yet, so yeah, please don't post the IWAD on the forums. That aside though, this definitely sounds interesting! It's been quite a while since I've done some Heretic hodgepodgery and I wouldn't mind giving it another go. I'll keep an eye on this.
  2. Just be honest here: do you actually want to improve at this? I know that saying "You simply MUST take this seriously!!!1!!" kind of goes against the spirit of why we do this in the first place, but I do have to wonder if you genuinely want to get better when you tout Aquarius199 videos as proof of your mapping prowess. A lot of people revel in producing garbage simply because it gets them attention and it's generally not worth the time and effort to help those people out. :/
  3. I am posting here solely to turn off replies to this thread. Also I like salt and vinegar chips.
  4. So I need beta testers.


    I have a project that's been in the works for a verrrrrry long time now and I need some people to help me balance and fine-tune the gameplay, considering it isn't my strong point when making Doom maps. It'll be a mission and a half and I wanna make sure everything is perfect, so I'm only gonna accept beta testers that I know have the mettle (and the patience, heh) to take this on. Credit will be given when this is released, of course.

      What kind of project, though?

      It's basically what happens when I try to do maps that aren't fucking shoeboxes.


      It's....kind of a success.

      I wouldn't mind doing testing or FDAs, provided the maps can be played in PrBoom+.

      sign me the FUCK UP

      Eh, I have nothing better to do. Why not? I have to help someone sometime.

      I can test your maps if you'd like.

      I hope it's Maskim Xul, waiting for it since 3 years....

      If it uses Dehacked then I want to be a tester for it, PM me stuff!

      It better not be more than 5 mb in download size.

  6. It's more likely that the tracks you hear were painstakingly recreated in MIDI as opposed to simply converted: MP3 converts to MIDI badly and generally isn't worth it. If you want to give manual conversion a go then try downloading a program like Sekaiju and learning the ropes.
  7. The lion head doesn't make a whole lot of sense from a thematic standpoint, but then again this is Doom. :P Maybe I'm just being pedantic.
  8. Ah yep, I guess I was looking for mention of graphics. Cheers.
  9. Are ZDoom maps allowed to use custom DECORATE entities, like monsters or props? I can't recall if that was mentioned in the OP.
  10. I miss the days where even the shitposts had effort put into them. Like ol' Graig.
  11. I like books. I'm also fond of the Plutonia setting. But mostly books.
  12. Might give it a go. :) The ability to use DECORATE is an interesting little quirk, might be tempted to crack open ZDoom and do some UDMF mapping for once.
  13. I briefly played it and there is mention of the Soviets, so I suppose. It's still demons you're fighting though.
  14. Cue the "BAND" custom title.
  15. Ouch. I do get where rdwpa is coming from though, you made your second and third maps only yesterday and here you are trying to hype your fourth one already. Slow down a bit, develop your mapping skills a bit more. It's tempting to make as much maps as possible and try to brute-force your way to improvement, but it's not really a tactic you can rely on and eventually people will get sick of the deluge. Tell you what: if you'd like to get constructive feedback on your maps and develop your skills, why not PM me your efforts instead of posting them here? I'm a bit of a patient sort and I would genuinely like to see you enjoy making things that other people can enjoy as well. Think it over.
