Status Updates posted by NuMetalManiak

  1. There's a lot of obscure progression in many 2023 wads I've noticed. Wish I could play several of them but WORK FUCKING SUCKS I would hate to take months to play just one wad but it feels like I got no choice (unless I can sneak a game in during off-time).

    1. Endless


      The less free time we have, the less we enjoy those switch hunts lol

  2. Doomwiki Secret list descriptions checklist:

    Finished and on a doc:
    -TNT The Way We Remember It
    -All DBPs for the ones without level pages so far

    -DBK02 and DBK03

    -Jamal Jones Trilogy


    To do:

    -PUSS series (going to do secret descriptions for all the ones with pages so far)
    -WMC series (same as above)

    -Maybe a few other ones.


    Basically at the point I'm currently in I've got a doc ready for when the level pages for those are up. I vaguely remember knowing how to create some level pages on the wiki but I'm currently way too busy this week with work and I need to get my phone fixed at the moment to make some. Still, this is where I'm currently at.

    1. NuMetalManiak



      WMC series are done.
      Starting secret descriptions on the PUSS WADs that have wiki pages at the moment. Looks like I didn't prepare for PUSS V having the gimmick of "every map has 10 secrets" and


      one map has 100


      okay it's not THAT big actually. Up to 75 so far in just one day, will finish tomorrow



  3. I wonder what originated this (appears if you hover over the blue arrow).



    1. Endless


      In all my time navigating the archives, I have never noticed this.


  4. Secret descriptions getting too much to handle on Doomwiki apparently. But you can't be Hiding the Secrets forever.

  5. Is it better to be a brave idiot or a cowardly genius?

  6. Cool, new slaughtermap on idgames just dropp...

    May Not Run With        : gzdoom 
    Tested With             : dsda-doom


  7. I can't believe Tim Feerick is dead. Had this song on repeat for those delicious bass openers. 


  8. Did Doomwiki's clock break? I made two recent changes and it says I did them two hours ago.




    Did the most recent one at 9:32 EST (probably approximately 2 hours before greenwich time but still) and when I checked the Recent Changes it also says I did it at 5:38 which also isn't really right.

  9. We really should give more attention to ilkallio's MIDIs. Plasma is a real nice creeper tune that grows well for E1M1 of Realm of Parthoris, and then Skeleton (on E1M4) is dirty and groovy awesomesauce.



    oh wait...

  11. I wonder if I'm the only one who hates seeing the Michael Jackson popcorn gif or other reaction gifs.


    I mean it doesn't really contribute anything to a discussion anyways, but whoever posts it could post something more informative.


    (don't attack me)

  12. Holy shit.


    That latest Rain page, it got me. This whole week the three pages of the comic were bound to be some heavy stuff, but damn. This really does mean everything.

    1. NuMetalManiak


      And after I said that, the latest triple-pager given today is a powerful way to show Rain's independence. Hard to believe the comic is almost completely over.

  13. Okay I'm not feeling depressed or suicidal now. I've finally landed a great position and I'm hoping it will work out in the end.

    1. mrthejoshmon


      Hopefully it does work out for you, stuff hasn't been too great for you (to understate it) and I hate to see it happen to anybody.


      You've seen some shit boss, it speaks of your courage and strength that you made it through.

    2. OliveTree


      I'm really glad you're in a better place now. Hang in there. time is linear, so you'll never have to experience the same day more than once. we're all here for you now and in the future :)

  14. I just wanna melt in my car so bad now.

  15. God damn it.

    I don't know if I'm going to live past 2021 after all.

      I dunno if that's gonna help. I dunno if anything's gonna help at this rate. I really do feel as if I'm on my wit's end without a future in sight.

    3. Chopkinsca


      dunno if it sound cliche, but hang in there

    4. OliveTree


      Oh gosh. I'm sorry you're really struggling apparently. I know it's maybe a sort of hollow feeling gesture, but we all really want you to be okay.

  16. Yesterday I narrowly managed to save a kid from committing suicide just outside a grocery store. This is the fourth time this year I had to save a kid from killing themselves.


    This is taking a toll on me. I've been thinking about it all night without sleeping.

    1. Catpho


      Take care, NuMetalManiak!

    2. OliveTree


      Oh god. That is. I'm sorry, that's really heavy. Please hang in there, and know to take proper care of urself and have emotional boundaries, and etc

    Congrats @Lüt!

    1. Lüt


      Oh wow, I won VGM's nerd of the month award after all. Wasn't expecting that; I thought he only did those for maps submitted during the previous month.


      Anyway, guess the secret's out that I kinda sorta got into that game a fair bit at one point. Also, guess one of my main design inspirations will become rather obvious if I ever get my Heretic episodes finished.

  18. Alright video card superheroes and superheroines I need your help.

    Is AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series good for playing heavy slaughtermaps like Cosmogenesis on GZDoom (4.5.0)? I've been following this thread's advice and I'm seeing some better progress but I'm still getting issues.


    Processor btw is AMD Phenom II x6 1090T 3.21 GHz if needed.

  20. I am SO glad I can search up Locked threads in the custom search function.

  21. First time I've used a cover photo.

    I am never changing this. Ever.

  22. Happy Trans Day of Visibility, everyone!

  23. History of Doomworld Forums drama (I'm posting this cause I want to aight):

    1999-2004: Doomworld was a young site, with many users of old no longer being here for various reasons such as moving on but then again there still is more than a handful who are still the hardcore Doom enthusiasts of they were years ago. At the time, there were quite a few dramas that have been left to fade, such as python_junkie = crendowing thing, the stupidity level thread, King REoL's crap, and the infamous "ball shit snakes" incident which is still a Doomworld meme. Also the Shadowrunner thing. One of the most infamous examples there.


    2005-2010: Site grows well, plenty more members came in and did or did not understand things depending on the user in general, which is okay. Main dramas were over certain wad projects, the most famous ones being darkexodus and Glassyman perhaps. Also mattbratt. Plenty of idiots thought they made super cool stuff except it wasn't well received and butthurt commenced. There was also the fall of Newdoom, the "nickbakery", CjWraith79 (or whatever his name was), as well as KDIZD drama.


    2011-2015: Drama still tended to get mixed in with some major forum projects here and there, if I recall there was the D-D leaving CC4 thing, the DTS-T dramas (there were two, one on sourceports and the other because some guy kept whiteknighting it), several TNT2 dramas, plus one on DTWID. Lakisoft's Ultimate Doom unofficial patch was him basically pulling a darkexodus. LittleTemple thing happened here, as did human body allegory. Numerous BDL moments were sporadic, as well as the popularity of Brutal Doom causing some stirs on occasion. My favorite drama is still the idSoftware981 posts on "Doom 4 Should Have" thread, though.


    2016-present: Doomworlders got really political in 2016 and always got into arguments, which basically was the reason a moratorium was drafted in order for people to STFU and take it somewhere else. Aside from politics, not a whole lot of drama really occurs unless someone was either spamming or really was triggered or if they just wanna be asshole. There were two notable instances of speedrunners cheating during this time period, with one heck of a post from BK. There was the recent plagiarism fiasco. Also can't remember if the anime avatar apocalpyse happened in 2015 or 2016.


    I don't intend to start drama with this post. I am just so interested in the history of things that have happened here. It's been fun reading all the crazy stuff that has happened over the years and I remember a whole lot of it.

    1. OliveTree


      this is very interesting! i love reading about the history of fan communities and cultures and stuff

  24. Can I ask why you're following my thread if you don't like my reviews or

    1. Nine Inch Heels

      Nine Inch Heels

      In case you hadn't noticed, I did post a comment there, which means this forums software sets my status to "follow" by default...


      Furthermore, there is at least a chance you might review something I'm interested in, so I don't see the harm in keeping an eye on it...


      If there's one thing you should actually ask yourself, it would be why you even give a damn that I'm following your thread in the first place... Do I sense a whiff or paranoia over there..?

    2. NuMetalManiak


      Yes it is paranoia because this kind of stuff happens to me elsewhere and it always weirds me out.

    3. Nine Inch Heels

      Nine Inch Heels

      Looks like you have something to take care of, in that case...
