  1. Suspended in Dusk. It might be getting on a bit now but it is a very impressive wad. It is one wad that everyone should play imo. Dave
  2. See this thread: http://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/61050-udmf-converter/ Dave
  3. Ahhhhhh kids these days. When I first bought my original PC I rather deliberately deleted my config.sys and autoexec.bat files. Cue a couple of days of faffing around. Gave me better understanding of how the PC handled drivers, load order and memory allocation. Everything is so much simpler now..... Not this has anything at all to do with the OP.... Dave
  4. New mappers need to make mistakes otherwise they won't learn anything about the mapping process, what works, what doesn't, the engine of choice and indeed the tools that they use. While some pointers can and do help I suggest that people are better mappers when they go in blind. Dave
  5. Uninstall GZDB and as Kappes Buur suggested download and install it again. I always do and have never had a problem. Dave
  6. First game (well, engine I suppose really) was the Freescape engine used in Driller - now that was a mind blowing game on the ZX Spectrum back in the day. The 3D Construction Kit was good fun to use and reasonably simple. I tried modding for UT but really didn't get into it at all. Doom... Started with DEU in the old DOS days and haven't looked back. I would've killed for an editor like DoomBuilder back then. Still once you got your head round how DEU wanted you to construct your spaces it was enjoyable. For me, Doom is the easiest game I've created levels for... Although creating custom courses for Jaguar XJ220 on the Amiga was simplicity but then its not an FPS! Dave
  7. When I first started out using BBS in the 80's I was known as MadDave and this carried forward into my first forays into the internet. When I started playing MMOs such Asheron's Call & Ultima Online I used Atlantiss a name I stuck with for a long time using it in games such as PlanetSide and Star Wars Galaxies. When I decided to start a second account in SWG I needed a name so I adapted my current and more unique name from Metroid Prime - The Phendrana Drifts. I really miss SWG but the NGE screwed the game and it just wasn't the same. Ho hum. So yes, I do use Phendrena as my forum name and also my in game name, but I'm stuck with Atlantiss as my Steam username :( Dave ** edit ** Phendrena seemed to suit my female Twi'lek tailor and sounds more feminine than Phendrana!
  8. I can't say I've ever played with only the keyboard and I really wouldn't like to try as I don't think I'd get the accuracy - its the same with a joypad - its just not as accurate. Dave
  9. The Real Doom wiki The Proper Doom wiki The Accurate Doom wiki Dave
  10. Glad the move went smoothly and that doomworld will live on. The offer of financial help is still there if it is ever needed and I'm sure all the community that are able to would chip in if needed. Nicely done Ling :) Dave
  11. Nothing! I borrowed Final Doom & Ultimate Doom off a friend, he moved away from the area so I still have it! I've considered it an extended loan :) Dave
  12. I am quite fond of giving some key items away for free, after all you worked hard to get there so you should be rewarded. Dave
  13. It is good to hear from the guys at AG and to why they are shutting down. Valid reasons of course and I appreciate that as I'm sure we all do! Anyone contacted Bethesda/ID to see if they can help us out?? :) Dave Seriously though, if we need to start getting some cash together for stuff then setup a PayPal.
  14. Something doesn't quite add up to me. As the other sites don't appear to scrambling to inform their community about the impending apocalypse are we the only folks being nudged out? If so, why and by whom? It is rather fishy. Dave
