    Kickstarter campaign for MindPrison Project

    I can confidently say that this is not a person worth trusting or supporting. He's caused trouble everywhere he's gone, including here. There are other avenues of revenue that can be utilized for fundraising, including Patreon or Ko-Fi, but if this is actually for this MIDI maker, I would want to hear it from the person making the MIDIs, not someone vaguely associated with him, especially if this is supposedly for rent payments, otherwise this makes me think this is putting the maps behind a paywall.

    Technicolor Antichrist Box [FINAL- now on /idgames!]

    Bumping because I'm planning an update in June (almost a year already, how????)- will be updating to the latest version of Supercharge with new scapgun weapon sprites and potentially reworking a couple fights. Watch this space!
  4. (cheers to @Dragonflyfor making this beautiful title screen) Ladies and gents, after a lot of blood, sweat, and linedefs, I present to you Technicolor Antichrist Box. I started this map as part of the 2019 NaNoWADMo challenge and didn't think I was ever going to pick it back up again. However, as COVID swept the globe and we became quarantined I finally decided to play around with this map again just to see what would happen. It's been an absolute joy to work on- no limits, no rules. Just void-style aesthetics with monsters aplenty to keep you moving. Warning: This is a slaughter style map so if you're not used to that sort of thing I'd recommend playing on Hey Not Too Rough or Hurt Me Plenty. Screenshot album: https://imgur.com/a/fWBS4Y9 THE NITTY GRITTY TECHNICAL STUFF: The file: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/technicolor Map: MAP01 Source Port: This map has been tested in GZDoom 4.2.0, and has been played by testers on version 4.1.1 as well. I would not recommend going to any versions earlier than 4.1.1 though, I have not tested it and therefore cannot confirm it would be able to run. If you are able to run it on earlier versions without issue please let me know. Supercharge, which is bundled with this file, also is tested in GZDoom 4.0 but cannot be confirmed to run on earlier versions. This map also makes heavy use of graphical and visual effects so it may lag a little in some spots on older machines. I've done my best to mitigate but due to the map's structure it's still a little janky on frame rate in some places. CREDITS: This map would not have been made possible without a LOT of help and support from the community. PLAYTESTERS: @Bridgeburner56, @Liberation , Dragonfly, @Jimmy, @wolfmcbeard, @SiMpLeToNiUm, @Guardsoul, Puzzlewell, @Insane_Gazebo, @reflex17, @NoReason , and@CyanoBlugron (if I missed anyone I'm sorry!) MUSIC: Title and Intermission: The Next Sunset by Teknoaxe Map: "Kontayjen" by @PRIMEVAL (bespoke) Supercharge mod by @Tango : this mod has been an absolute joy to map with so thank you so much for making it available for us! TEXTURES: Zoontex by Jimmy, OTEX by @ukiro, GothicTX, ArchTex, AATex, and some recolors done by myself. This map also uses a cyan palette that was linked to me by @antares031 and made bringing this map's visuals to life so much easier- thank you! OTHER CREDITS: @HexaDoken for their help with some graphics The Hellforge discord community and my Twitch community for being a wonderful set of people to vent to, share ideas, and generally just being awesome. Huge special thanks to Bridgeburner56- he's helped me in so many, many ways- gameplay and visual refinements, how to make a proper pentagram, testing a ton, and being a generally amazing human- he's been an amazing mentor and I would not be where I am today without him. I really hope you all enjoy it and please let me know if there's any bugs or other things you happen to find! CHANGELOG: -missed some items floating in the exit area, now fixed. -5.31.20 fixed an error with line portal heights, fixed a softlock and a node-builder error, got rid of the unnecessary Ultra-Randomized difficulty. -6.2.20 fixed some other small blockline and softlock issues, added a startup graphic, cleared up some pk3 errors due to wrong brightmap pathing. -6.5.20 removed two extraneous monster closets, fixed an issue with a key going into the ground. currently now RC1. -6.14.20 officially on /idgames archive, file link updated

    PWADs for beginner level player

    Keep in mind as well there's difficulty skills below Hurt Me Plenty. No shame in playing on I'm Too Young to Die or Hey Not Too Rough. Hmm... I'd recommend something like Eviternity, good skill curve.

    8th Doomversary- AMA edition

    So April 7th will mark my 8th year since I posted my first DOOM WAD Review to YouTube. A lot's happened in that time- I've met lots of cool people, I've learned how to map, and I'm in a better place than I'd ever imagined myself being in at 17. So, tomorrow I plan to stream some good old fashioned mapping- and I'd love to talk with you guys about the Doom journey- not just mine, but yours as well! If you have any questions that you'd like to see answered on stream, post them below. I'll be doing a short stream at about 6 PM EST at https://twitch.tv/majorarlene . I hope to see you all there!

    Nightmare question

    these were made by people not directly affiliated with id or the original Doom production process. in any case Nightmare is not meant to be taken seriously, as people above have said. if you can't complete it on nightmare there's probably a reason.

    Looking for Slower-Paced Maps

    The Classic Episode, for the most part, is generally easy-going on HNTR. Just lots of barons.

    my new mod: doo0om.pk3

    Hi there! a couple things: please don't double post (just edit a single post)- and yes, check out Ultimate Doom Builder. Bridgeburner has been doing a tutorial series on his YouTube channel for UDMF mapping and just recently released a hotkey glossary video. The Doom Editing part of the forum is also a good place to ask mapping questions or see if a question you have is already answered :) I'd also recommend Chubzdoomer videos for editor basics- he uses Doom Builder 2 but a lot of the same principles still apply in Ultimate Doom Builder. Welcome to the mapping scene!

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    The numbers have to come from somewhere, my guy. there's IQ tests, standardized tests, etc. come on! there's tons of numbers. I'd love to see an actual, proper analysis of it. As it turns out, that's actually wrong :) https://www.healthline.com/health/average-iq#average-iq Get some actual numbers and education up ya. I know IQ isn't be all end all of intelligence but it's a start.

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    a. legal consequences is how you get social ones. b. you can be a bad person and still be believed in by at least 50% of the population (again, take who our last US president was or any given politician, really. actually the NXIVM case was a fantastic example of this.) c. don't victim blame. while victims get one aggressor, aggressors can get multiple victims. this is why you would want to address what the aggressor is doing, not just the victim. d. citation needed.

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    mmm no. it's actually anti-Semitic. I'll leave you with a video I found that was helpful in explaining some of the QAnon stuff but that's where I'll leave it.
  16. Major Arlene

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    When I say consequences, I don't mean from the government necessarily. Private citizens/businesses should be able to render legal action or other consequences against others if their rights are in violation or they are discriminated against due to speech or they are put in danger due to speech. While I won't defend everything Twitch does, for example, they've banned homophobic terms and other discriminatory speech and will render consequences to you if you use it. You're going to get fired if you use a discriminatory slur. You're not going to be able to use it in as many places, that's what I mean by mitigation. Just as it's someone's right to call me a bitch or some other nasty things I won't repeat, it's well within my rights to either tell you not to use those terms or try to get you away from me on that platform, i.e. reporting or blocking. That is what's meant when freedom of speech does not equal freedom from consequences- EVERY action you take has a consequence.
  17. Major Arlene

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    it's not the be-all, end-all, but it sure will mitigate some of the consequences.
  18. Pretty sure Romero Games' shop has them but they're at like 1200 euros- good luck getting them for $400.
  19. Major Arlene

    Should knowledge be restricted?

    Well unfortunately those pieces of shit sometimes become presidents and other people of power, and are able to impose their "knowledge" upon others with hugely harmful consequences. The US is a prime example with the recent QAnon mess. People legitimately believed this stuff, no matter how easily it was disproven, and it ended up literally killing people and tearing apart families. Free speech absolutely should come with consequences if you say harmful/discriminatory things, otherwise it becomes complete and utter anarchy.

    How to deal with severe lack of focus as a mapper?

    I've been using Habitica as a way to keep myself on task- if you can plan ahead some, or enough, to put in a checklist of things you want to do on a map, I recommend it.
  21. A screenshot of what you're talking about would be helpful.
  22. Teknoaxe and Incompetech are two royalty free sites I used- although you'll likely have to convert the format over to OGG as most are MP3. It also depends what format you're using. There's also tons and tons of midi/music artists on this site- Eris, Jimmy, Immorpher, Stewboy, Primeval, to name a few.

    worldDooMworld tutorial

    We'll hopefully be getting something more official together soon! But yes, basically just be respectful of others and keep posts relevant.
  24. Probably the main two are illuminaughtii (does videos about shady businesses) and GrayStillPlays.

    Why Do Pwads Almost Never Have a Story

    A lot of that "story in a porn movie" quote I think went WAY the hell over people's heads. The overriding principle is that story should not get in the way of gameplay (looking at you, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus). But yes, environmental storytelling is incredibly underrated, and while it's a thing not everyone will "get" I think it's a much better way of doing story than cramming in a bunch of cutscenes and dialogue, at least for OG Doom.
