  1. @Liberation Thanks for spotting the mistakes with the secret sectors. This will go to idgames in the next day or so. Glad you enjoyed this and thanks for playing. Episode 2 is tentatively planned for the 25th anniversary but I'm a lot slower mapper than Mr Peterson... And with that I will stop bumping this thread ;) Thanks to everyone who played. Have a safe 2018 people.
  2. Thanks for the demo MH. And thanks for playing.
  3. Happy New Year. Here is a vanilla Episode 1 replacement for Ultimate Doom. It's called "Sons of Ares": Download Here are some screenshots: Imgur images IWAD: doom.wad Ports Tested: Chocolate Doom 3.0.0, GZDoom 3.2.4 Difficulties: Yes. Balanced for pistol starts. Pretty easy because I'm a bad player. Multiplayer: Yes but untested New Resources: No Bugs/Glitches: Drawseg overflows in E1M8. Big thanks for scifista for demos and feedback and to doomkid for doomshack files
  4. Thanks anotak this has become my preferred map editor. Maybe I can make some suggestions here? Checking Things for errors could report if no difficulty flags are set? In the dialog box listing sidedefs with missing textures it would be nice to be able to select all and apply the default in one go, rather than one by one. Is there a way to make a hot key to set selected texture x-offset to zero? Have ten files in the most recently used list under "File". Thanks again!
  5. When making a multi-level wad/mapset I have a separate wad file for each individual map and I use the "Save Map Into" menu command to assemble them all into a single "master" wad file when they are almost finished. Is it possible to make a batch file that will invoke DoomBuilder2 via the command line to do this in one go, as it is tedious to open and "Save Into" 9 times to make an episode? Thanks
  6. Take it easy dude. There's no rush. I appreciate the work you're doing. Good luck with the family/personal things.
  7. In my case the panel is not totally blank. It is only the linedef action that is missing. There is the text "Action:" then nothing. I tried deleting the configuration file but it made no difference.
  8. In linedef mode when the mouse is over a linedef with an action there is no action information in the info panel. I miss that from regular db2.
  9. Just tried this and liking it. I think very soon it will replace db2 for me. One very tiny cosmetic thing I noticed is when in 3d mode if I select multiple walls and right click to open the edit linedef dialog it will say the number of selected linedefs in parantheses after "edit linedef" in the title. Then if I close that and select a single wall and edit again the title of the dialog still says (3). The same happens for sectors (also in 2d mode the same). It seems this number only changes when the number of selected entities is greater than one. As I write this I just checked how it behaves for Things and this is more serious because the difficulty flags behave as if multiple things are selected even after you press "c" to clear the selection. Hope this makes sense...
  10. Thanks to csonicgo for the review but thanks also to scifista and plums who gave really good help and advice. I was aiming for vanilla but it was a little too much. I think the use of monster blocking lines referred to in the review was scifista's suggestion. So thanks again for that!
  11. Today, after more than 20 years of Dooming, I discovered a secret chainsaw in E1M7. Quite shocked to find something new in E1.

  13. I'm 41. Been playing Doom (on and off) since '94. I think it's starting to get worse but I wasn't so hot to start with. I rarely play on UV so maybe I didn't build up the old Doom muscles much in the first place. I don't plan to give up any time soon so all mappers please think about lower difficulty settings - maybe you'll need them in a couple of decades ;)
