    What happened february 15th 2015?

    What is the funniest thing you have read online?

    I don't know if lurkers are allowed to see it, but Something Awful's Comedy Goldmine speaks for itself. I still remember the two threads I saw there: one about a truly awful roommate who repeatedly shit in the bathtub and another about a garbage truck that beat a ricer in a race. There was a thread on Fark where someone posted a picture of his Firefox tabs and someone else realized one tab led to a furry art site. Since this was during the height of furry hate, that person got so, so much shit for it. Let it be a lesson to be careful what you show people online and off.

    Doom Tips

    Obligatory "shoot at it until it dies" quip. Set up your controls so you can move, aim, shoot and change weapons comfortably. Aim/turn sensitivity in particular needs fine-tuning so you're not fighting your controls as much as your enemies. Choose a difficulty that you can handle without getting frustrated. If it means playing on I'm Too Young to Die, so be it.

    Did ponies use to be banned on doomworld?

    Judging by the original post date, the brony phenomenon resulting from 4chan discovering MLP G4 was in full swing at that time, where you really couldn't go anywhere online without stumbling upon pictures of them little horsies. I didn't mind it too much, but I definitely understood the backlash for the ponies' overexposure; I had a similar issue with Pokemon when it first debuted in the US. I don't think anyone here who had an MLP avatar got much shit for it. Well, maybe in the beginning when one guy was called a "dumb broad" for introducing the plague of ponies to Doomworld. No idea what happened on August 2021 to remove the restriction on ponies, but by then MLP G4 had concluded a few years prior and its fanbase shrunk considerably. My conspiracy theory is that the mods loosened up a bit overall, because in the previous month people were finally allowed to choose their custom titles instead of at the mods' discretion.

    Killing Floor 3 has been announced.

    Pass. I gave up KF2 when Tripwire made up a sob story about having to sell weapon DLC when they had explicitly said the skins they were selling during the Early Access phase (itself a questionable move) was going to prevent that. Yet a few days before the weapon DLC announcement, they celebrated securing funding from Epic Games for timed exclusivity for their shark game. I know the two aren't supposed to be related, but something about the timing just didn't sit right with me at all. Since then, I heard their old CEO the Jesus freak was shitcanned for mouthing off about abortion and women's rights. They also switched to Epic Online Services which apparently doesn't work well (see also Payday 2's recent conversion) and shits itself whenever Two-Weeks has events. And now EOS is expanding into consoles to expand the walled garden Epic Games is trying to carve out of everyone else's space.

    Do you use the regular shotty after finding the SCG?

    Does the regular shotgun shoot Morph Ovums?

    Quake II Remastered

    Based on what I've seen here and on twitch, I think I can scrounge up the cash to get it. Man, I'm glad my oldass PC specs are just a step over the minimum reqs. But I am concerned about if it uses Epic Online Services. Based on SteamDB (detected technologies) and PCGW (middleware) it does not, but I guess I'm looking for some kind of assurance. I don't want to get roped into the Epic Games walled garden that they're trying to carve out of everyone else's space.

    What Is The Best Build Game? [Poll]

    Maybe Ettingrinder's Witchaven archive can help if you haven't seen it yet?

    Zee or Zed?

    Zee, although once during a very staticky phone call I had to say "Z as in zoo" to get the letter across. Specimen, please. I never did like the overuse of Zed in the second game much like how badass was overused in Borderlands 2. But I seriously doubt anyone else was gonna call them Specimens like in the mod, or Specs as if they're fighting a bunch of eyewear. Eh, I just edited the strings in the .int files to replace Zed with Specimen and left it until the next game update overwrote it.

    Is Doomworld good at Hexen? [Poll]

    I played it on the N64 and was severely disappointed by it within two hours. I did give it another try on PC with Korax Mod and while it was a little better, I didn't get past the third hub.

    send the most fucked up copypaste you have ever read

    I saw an Epic Games Store copypasta delivered with such armor-piercing venom that I had an uncomfortable chuckle at the sheer audacity. Someone pointed out the copypasta was based on an extremely transphobic screed and when I went to read that, I instantly regretted it and for laughing at the EGS-based one.

    How Often Do You Replay Doom/Doom 2?

    I start playing them on their birthdays: Ultimate Doom on December 10th and Doom 2 on October 10th cause it's my birthday and I'll play if I want to. Most years that's the only Dooming I get. Sometimes I play them with a wrinkle added to it. Controller instead of M&K. -fast. Reduced ammo (12 for Shell box, 6 for non-dropped Shotguns, 3 for Rocket box, half for Cell ammo). I think this year I'll try Quake-style health decay.
  14. The Preview button already exists in the formatting ribbon above where you enter your text. It looks like a piece of paper with a magnifying glass on the bottom right. As for zoom-in, you hold Ctrl and roll the mousewheel up/down to your preferred size. If there are still too many words per line, then you want to resize your browser window horizontally so there are fewer words per line.
  15. Okay dude, you're being weirdly insistent about not installing GPU drivers and we're all wondering what the possible reason could be. You might as well go all the way and remove the card since you seem intent on not using it anyway.
