  1. Maybe the real Doom 2 was the Plutonia Experiment we made along the way.

    Snapmap deserves more respect

    Just one in question here, "Play 5 published SnapMaps". The other two SnapMap related ones are to go through the tutorial, then create and publish my own SnapMap (ugh). Those and the multiplayer ones are the only trophies between me and a Platinum for the game... (unless the add-on trophies count? I doubt they should though)

    Snapmap deserves more respect

    Incidentally, are there any decent SnapMaps I can play to fill out my D2016 trophies on PS4?

    From where the "It runs Doom" trend originated?

    Amiga's had DOOM for pretty much as long as the source code has been open. I literally saw in the millennium playing that sucker at a friend's house.

    From where the "It runs Doom" trend originated?

    I wouldn't say it was a trend as much as a common benchmark; it's said that the very process of getting DOOM to run on a device will determine in part its usability for hacking it to perform other tasks. I can see how in a way, it's a bespoke app with a very specific purpose and outcome that can be; to a degree; tested by eye. Of course it is just good goofy fun when someone sees their coffee machine has an LCD screen and thinks "I wonder if DOOM can run on this?". It'd play like shit, of course, but I suppose actually playing the thing isn't high on the priority list of such ports...

    Why Aren't Nam And Redneck Rampage Mentioned?

    You think? I had this happen on the Scrapyard map multiple times in normal gameplay. No idea what happened here or why.
  7. I can't be bothered reading the many replies to this topic when IMO there's only one plausible answer to the question posed in the topic's title field: "Is no one else worried by the dangerous precedent being set by the moderation team?" Well, by rights its their forum and they can do what they damn well want. (Technically Linguica's, but he sees fit to entrust moderation duties to whomever he chooses, so... point remains) If you want to see the kind of thing being censored moderated from here, I'm sure there are other place. Internet's big. Not here though. Not in this house.
  8. Some legends I will never forget, ball shit snakes.

    SHRINE II - A Total Conversion Mod for Doom 2

    Woah, how do you crank these out so fast? Also this reminds me to get cracking with the first Shrine, I love its aesthetic. <3
  10. Except for the part where it's Knee Deep In [non-vanilla sourceport].
  11. Oh, yeah. Just hit the 'change textures' and 'change music' buttons in SLADE and then apparently an explosion. I can't believe that wasn't already suggested. Sounds legit, if slightly dangerous.

    Do you want to die earlier?

    Ah yes, good old nihilism. I mean that sincerely. Were it in good health, I could probably live for a thousand years and enjoy the fact that there would always be something to learn, something to discover, something new to experience, something to rediscover having all-but forgotten. I don't need a higher power or meaning for that, the world is full of joyous and beautiful things and if I live to be a hundred (which is a damn good age to live to!) there would still be so much I hadn't done.

    Using secrets effectively

    I'm a fan of obvious but low-tier secrets. A glaringly-different wall-texture, opens up to award a small handful of blue bottle health bonuses? GIMMEGIMMEGIMME. I've put some of that kinda thing in a couple of recent maps of mine. IMO it's a nice generous gesture to the player to hand them at least one secret they're going to basically trip over, and ensure they aren't leaving the map with 0%.

    What is your favorite Icon of Sin fight?

    I liked the twist on the idea from Doom 2 the way id Did, the goal was the same but there was an additional layer of abstraction, a mini-puzzle in achieving that end.
  15. I didn't know I wanted BTSX on console nearly as much as I clearly did and do. Excellent work, all involved. <3

    |Share Your Music|

    I make games, and write the soundtracks for them too. Sometimes I end up with a whole-ass soundtrack that otherwise would go completely unused so I release it as an album. Here's a recent example. It's themed around computers and computer hacking, tunes are short without many repeating segments (I had looping versions ready for the game I eventually never made).

    Most obscure Doom fact you know

    Revenants have two distinct personalities, randomly-defined at spawn. They're either Angry Dooty or Calm Dooty (names not official). Angry Dooty fires homing projectiles 75% of the time and Calm of Dooty only 25%. Also it's this that breaks demos in vanilla.

    I fucking HATE self-depricating jokes

    Count me in as being resolutely against self-depreciating jokes. They're about as useless as I am.

    What's the consensus on The Master Levels?

    I will echo this. Best map of the lot. Given that I think his three Evilution maps some of the strongest in that, and my general love for Perdition's Gate, I'd say I'm a fan.

    What's the consensus on The Master Levels?

    For the most part, they're terrible. I found myself wall-humping and navigating entirely by automap way more than should be necessary; and combat often wasn't satisfying enough to be the payoff for that. Some are okay. Notwithstanding, putting a mandatory (not secret) channel of access behind a damn fireplace happened more than once, fair warning and all. I played these via the PS4 port for the trophy and, lemme tell ya, I wasn't sick of D_RUNNIN til then.
  21. Barons of Hell. Waste of five rockets.

    Duke Nukem 3D Or Ion Fury?

    Ion Fury's good. I feel like it drags on a bit, and there are WAY too many of those spider robot things (didn't you know? It's not a BUILD game unless there are annoying floor-critters everywhere!) but it's a good ride. I'd call it my favourite BUILD game, but I don't really see what the fuss is all about over Blood. It's okay.

    Why Aren't Nam And Redneck Rampage Mentioned?

    I've been playing Redneck Rampage of late, and lemme tell ya; it's a worse offender for hunting switches and their effects than Hexen ever was, IMO. And yet, like Hexen, the payoff is in the atmosphere. It feels partly like urbexing some shitty run-down (not-so) abandoned locales, there's some great texture use here and there, and you can almost smell the environments. Great stuff; even if some of the maps (*cough* Sewers *cough*) are absofuckinglutely wretched to actually play. Gunplay's so-so though. Pistol's a better all-rounder than the scattergun, dynamite's nowhere near as fun to use as in Blood, huntin' rifle's alright but there's not nearly enough ammo to go nuts with it like I wanna.

    What is a Good name for a Doom Wad?

    I am disappointed in the metal band name generator. I was hyped for What.

    Have you ever regretted helping?

    I help wherever I am able without a second thought. Couple of times on these very forums, I've been in doubt as to whether the request was a troll but helped regardless. Y'know why? If I offer help and it's spat back at me, that's on them; not me. So, no. I have never regretted helping another human being. No exceptions. Not ever.
