  1. 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
  2. Take it easy dude. There's no rush. I appreciate the work you're doing. Good luck with the family/personal things.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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...
  6. 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!
  7. Today, after more than 20 years of Dooming, I discovered a secret chainsaw in E1M7. Quite shocked to find something new in E1.

  9. 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 ;)

  12. Yeah, I think you're right. It would be better for the player character to be innocent or framed. I'll probably post something more later. And thanks to you and MrFlibble for the kind words ;)
  13. The judge is finally getting to the end of his pompous lecture. You're not listening. Instead you focus intensely on the faces of the jury, committing each one to memory. Just in case. The jurors are looking at the judge or at the floor. Nobody meets your eyes. One of your guards interrupts your concentration by jabbing his rifle into your shoulder. The judge pauses and you turn to face him. The court adjutant gives a discreet nod. Your guards grab your arms and haul you to your feet. "Rarely has this court seen such a collection of the gravest offences. Assault. Murder. Multiple counts of attempted murder. Resisting arrest. Grand larceny. Conspiracy. Treason." The judge pauses, as if to make sure he didn't miss any. No, it seems that's everything. "Considered together with the defendent's total lack of contrition, not to mention the repeated contempt shown to this court, I have no choice but to pass the harshest sentence permitted by the law." There's a surprise. The adjutant gestures at the clerk - the next part should be recorded. The judge can barely supress a self-satisified grin. You'd almost think he doesn't get to do this routine that often. "You will be taken from this court and placed into the custody of the Astra Genetic Materials corporation. All of your civil and human rights are hereby forfeit and your legal status henceforth shall be that of private property of the Astra Genetic Materials corporation. This sentence is final and permanent with no right of appeal or review." You knew it would either be this or a firing squad, but, in truth, you'd been hoping for the firing squad. The judge dismisses the court and the adjutant orders everyone to stand. The judge drags his bulk out of his throne and disappears through a private door. The adjutant signals for the guards to take you away. A keypad beeps and the floor panels behind you slide back to reveal metallic steps leading down to the holding cells. You are shoved down into the darkness. After what is euphemistically called "processing" you are drugged, restrained and loaded into a small AGM shuttle. The guard is joking with the pilot. You hear the engines kick in as you fade out. An explosion. Gunfire. Screaming. You snap out of the drug-induced sleep but it wasn't a dream. The shuttle is lying on its side. Black smoke is pouring from somewhere. Exposed electrical wires crackle and hiss. The pilot is dead in his seat. You know he's dead because nobody survives that amount of blood loss. The guard lies at your feet, gunshot wounds across his chest. Your hands are free, he must have unlocked your restraints just before he died. You grab the pistol from his belt and peer out of the exit hatch. The shuttle crashed near some kind of outpost. Something is moving. More gunfire rings out. You check the pistol and disengage the safety lock. You remember the judge's final words, " right of appeal..." You'll see about that...
  14. The muse has gone so it's time to clear everything out. And this crap has been sitting around for a while... UD E4 replacement "Apokalypsis" - appeared before here but this version has been overhauled based on comments and demos. Heretic E1M1 - slightly expanded from earlier version here. Refrigerator Magnets 1 - Doom 2, three maps. First appeared here. Minor updates only. Refrigerator Magnets 2 - Doom 2, two maps. Not previously released. Screenies. Thanks to plums, Wilou84 and scifista. Their advice made these less bad. If anyone gives any feedback or (new) demos it'll be much appreciated! Maybe it'll get my groove back. Again! Cheers JF
  15. Here's 3-map PWAD for Doom 2. It's called "Refrigerator Magnets". Download (mediafire) Some images (imgur) Any feedback is welcome. Any demos are really welcome! * Thanks to plums for advice and help with map01. The rest is all my fault...
