    Is there a direct Windows port of Vanilla Doom?

    The closest you will get to 100% directly playing the original games on Windows is using DOSBOX to run the original .EXE files themselves. Otherwise, you're not going to beat Chocolate Doom.

    Blood vs Shadow Warrior

    Blood is the better game, though Shadow Warrior has a decent port for free available, while for Blood you might want to wait for Night Dive's rerelease. The weapons are overall more fun to use IMO (although, SW's katana is very nice compared to the pitchfork, but that's about it), the level design is complex and atmospheric, and Caleb as a character is infinitely more interesting and memorable than Wang.

    Question about texture wads

    What port are you using? Did you include all of the lumps in the d1gfxd2.wad file, including PNAMES?

    what is your favourite Power Weapon in FPS history?

    Obviously the BFG9K. That's the gun. The Wraithverge is not far behind and I'm pleasantly surprised to see it mentioned. One more honorable mention for Wolf3D's chaingun.

    Is Freedoom DEAD? 😱

    I'm sure it has been far "deader" in the past. Isn't it only missing a few sprite sets (and even then, the current placeholders aren't bad at all except for maybe the Vile) and a map or two for Phase 1? I wouldn't worry, in any case.

    Most recent movie you saw

    Saw that Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse movie. Visually, the movie was pretty incredible, but I still wasn't really a fan besides that.

    Tinder: have you used it? Do you recommend it?

    I'd never consider it. I've never been very good at "socializing" through apps, text, or whatever. So much so that I even have trouble talking to my good IRL friends that way, let alone some stranger who's probably just looking for a forgettable hookup with someone more attractive than me. Besides, I'm not really in a rush to date or hook up with anyone in the first place, so whatever.

    PrBoom-Plus, ver.

    I'd imagine PrBoom+ in its current state simply isn't in as much need of constant maintenance, feature additions, etc as ports such as GZDoom, Eternity, or even Doom Retro. It's understandable that it wouldn't see as much activity.

    This is like the forum thread equivalent of a Terrywad

    [Poll] Do you still play wads with brutal doom?

    I mean, people are free to dislike a mod for whatever reason they want. If Sgt. Mark IV's shitty behavior is reason enough for his mod to leave a bad taste in their mouth (especially in cases directly related to Brutal Doom, such as the "real gore" addon or racist jokes directly in the code's comments), it's relevant to the thread, IMO.

    [Poll] Do you still play wads with brutal doom?

    Author drama and popularity aside, I thought it was cool the first time but it really now it feels like an average gore mod that only has executions really going for it in terms of originality. Plus, the player sounds and taunts are super obnoxious. If I want the gore I'll just use Nashgore, if I want fancier effects, animations and what not I'll use Smooth Doom, and if I want the harder gameplay there's a ton of mods that do it better.

    Dumb question about mods

    I'd imagine people would rather put that energy into an original TC instead of basically making an inferior version of the original product. I never saw the point of ZBlood, tbh. Why not just... play Blood?

    Why I hate the term "mapper".

    They aren't? I thought "E#M#" stood for "episode # map #"

    Why I hate the term "mapper".

    It doesn't affect me personally at all, and I'd say I'm just confused far more than "triggered." It's just a bit bizarre to me, as I've always understood the terms to have the exact same meaning. "Level designer" is certainly more formal- what you would "put on your resume," as Jimmy put it- but I've personally never seen that term used in a derogatory manner before now. Like, have there been instances where you've actually seen someone use the term "mapper" to put someone else down for their lack of skills? Still, I'll keep the thread in mind and go along with it from now on even if I don't exactly understand it.
