  3. Hey Maribo, 

    Do you mind if I drop something quick into your PMs? (don't worry, only 3/10 on the weird scale)

    1. Maribo


      Not right now please, sorry.

  4. ...

    interesting avatar...

    i see... this prof pic is a clever ruse to goad me into creating the gene therapy company i always wanted and turn everyone fluffy, isn't it.  i see through your plans and will not bite!  i'm only a day in since my dry period, so you can't take the best of me.


    *breathes in heavily and meditates:* do not pet the rd. do not pet teh rd. do not pet the rd.....


    really cute avatar, i hate it.

    1. baja blast rd.

      baja blast rd.

      please stop messaging people like this -- status message or DM, doesn't matter 


      it's a problem, and since you've implied multiple times you know you are being weird, stop before admins have to get involved

      also thanks.

  5. i like your profile pic!

  6. Uncapped framerate not pure, but makes brain work so much gooder.

    Smooth framerate make brain feel smooth too.  Hmmm. yes. good.

  7. I've yoinked your art for the time being. :)

    1. Wavy


      Oh nice :)


      In that case could I use your Shiver?

    2. NoisyVelvet


      Sure.  I wish I spent more time on it now tho.  Could've atleast shaded it, etc.

  8. Hmm.  I hope you're doin' okay over there.  Quite the vibe.

    1. Maribo


      Living and being happy is the hardest thing in the world.

  9. Lowkey been trying to pacifist your one level.  Not sure if possible but has been a fun puzzle to chew at so far.

      this owns... i love this map for some reason lol

    3. Maribo


      @msx2plus thanks :)
      if you haven't played them (they were posted when you were away from Doomworld for a while, I believe), you might also like the loose prequel Her Love Just Washed Away and ryiron's Third Eye.

      Hehe.  I think you underestimate the power of two cyberdemons.  (a lesson I learned from mayhem15...)  Maybe it can work if they all thread the needle for all their rockets.  Usually it's destined to be a shallow bell-curve though...  

      But, I did just realize that you can wake up one revenant at a time and just crush them...  oh dear.  Don't do it, Noisy.  you will be trapped for the rest of your life.


      Might be worth a TAS, though: either that strat or the pancake fling strat would be cool.

  10. @BiZ, meat @Biz!. 


    Now FIGHT!

      how 2 fite

    3. Doomkid


      This is like that time @Baratus and @BaratusII got in a fight to the death. It wasn't pretty.

    4. Doomkid


      And of course we all know who came out on top of the classic @Doomkid VS @DooMBoy skirmish of '05. That mofo's hard drive was jam packed full of viruses once I was done with it. MUAJAJAJA

  11. Ok, I won't abuse any 180 binding in demo recording, because according to @Andrea Rovenski, it's being suppressed in a future DSDA-Doom, at least in strict-mode. 


    But now I have other devils on my shoulders because I learned two things just now:  I can bind the USE action to my mouse wheel and just machine-gun spam USE when approaching switches for optimal switch pressing - kinda sketchy but super effective;  Also, Toggle Vertical Mouse Movement is a bind-able action too.  I knew about this one for a while but it always felt like a sketchy thing to me personally.  I know it's not frowned upon and a lot of people use it, but if I was already going to be corrupted by the allure of insta-180's, I might as well reconsider this one too.  When Kraflab gives you lemons, make kraflab-ade... or not.  Dunno...

      lol imagine turning vmm off tho 

  12. I see... Windows Powershell can unzip files using "Expand-Archive filename" and it's much simpler than I thought.  Which means after downloading a Doom wad, I can eliminate all clicks from the Dooming workflow entirely instead of whatever I was doing before.

    1. [Windows Key]
    2. "pow"... [auto-complete; Enter]
    3. "cd down"... [auto-complete; Tab]
    4. "exp"... [auto-complete; Tab]
    5. " My1stMa"... [auto-complete; Tab]
    6. "cd My"... [auto-complete; Tab]
    7. "dsda"... [auto-complete; Tab+Space+Tab x2]
    8. [Enter] and start Dooming.

    I feel so epic and powerful now.

  13. Yo, maybe it's just a friday afterwork and my brain is frizzled, but your profile pic ROCKs.

  14. Downloaded the new DSDA-Doom.  Set it up as global, copied Doom2 into it.  Still figuring out what settings I want yet, but it's mostly ready to whip out whenever.  Part of me kinda wants to keep using PrBoom-Plus, though, because it's grown on me.  It isn't the same without music playback crashing your game during a long ironman; It isn't the same without catwalks and ledges randomly sheering and disappearing from under you like during that 1 hour long D5DA2 map;  It isn't the same without having to manually ESC quit out of a demo and reload the same map over and over again for a 5000+ attempt demo.  Etc...


    New port looks awesome, though.  I'll probably break into it eventually.


    The Hexen stuff sounds exciting (hub maps!?).  Also, the new ENDDOOM in Windows PowerShell looks brilliant (not sure what I expected):


  15. You made me realize something today:  The Pagodia -deh file would make for a really good Tyson set outside of "Purple Mapset".


    Just think about it, a fencing match with endless amounts of juking Cacodemons and low health Cybers.  It'd be glorious.

    1. Maribo


      The reduced cyber health makes it a lot more accessible to punch them out, less time for nerves to get to you


      Punching the crackodemons is soooooo awful, but it feels really good to get them infighting with something and then beat them to death before they can bite you twice in one second

  16. lol

      Electro Rage

      He followed me too. Don't know what that's about to be honest

  17. Must... resist... urge to crawl into the PMs of people that I like and type animal noises for no reason.


    I'm feeling kinda loopy and droopy and ploopy :) 

    Good thing Doomworld's Status Updates are broken and no one will read this.

    1. Nefelibeta


      proven false there are at least 3 people who read this... 4 now

  18. Ahh good, just checking to see if he's still the Forum Etiquette Expert.

  19. thx Maribo, you have me watching Animaniac clips on Youtube now, just before bedtime.  I hope my dreams won't be corrupted.

    1. Maribo


      I've had trouble getting my brain to do much the last couple of weeks and one of the impulsive solutions I followed up on was grabbing the whole of season one (original run) and starting to work through it. It's so charming.

    I will use the last bit of my power available to upload a meta post about me expending my final remaining power.  I was on borrowed time as it is and am blessed.  This is my final most powerful move.  Farewell...

    -disintegrates into dust and blows into the wind - woosh~

      I guess goodbye, gifs.

    3. Obsidian


      Personally I just upload pictures and wads to a private Discord server: so long as what you're uploading is under 8 megabytes, you can kind of go ham with it.

    4. NoisyVelvet


      I see what you did there, this is a sneaky way of getting me to make a Discord account. :^)


      I'll figure something out.

  21. too much red.  i must be ded. powering down...

  22. @MFG38 Damn, I got snubbed hitting submit. https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/127560-a-humble-request-regarding-difficulty-curves/


    I respect the problem: There's a sense of satisfaction and closure from completing the mapset's ultimate win-condition, that of getting to the end screen and "beating the game".  Whereas running into a wall towards the end leaves the player unsatisfied instead.  Just closing the mapset after hitting a wall doesn't always feel right.

    my difficulty of preference is still no higher than HNTR, and I honestly hate it when I play a mapset that I enjoy for the first 90% of maps but then the last 10% are an almost directly vertical upward ramp in difficulty.

    This part is noteworthy to me.  Knowing that players like this exist can still run into trouble, despite playing on HNTR.  In this case, it's a question of: How hard would do you nerf these maps so even the humblest of HNTR players have a path to completion; or do you just leave some in the dust and move on from mapping?

    And maybe it's not a HNTR thing, and just a playstyle issue.  I.e: player doesn't enjoy/handle slaughter, and even a billion extra megaspheres added on HNTR won't make the map feel less awkward to them.


    This is why I really like hub-systems/overworlds over of the conga-line-of-32-levels that most Doom sets are railroaded into by format.  Bottlenecks suck, and being able to the "beat the game" and get to the end screen without them, is nice.  


    Shoutouts to the Joy of Mapping, Winter GZdoom wad.  I wish most Boom community projects had the luxury of organizing map submissions in a hub like that.

    I also wonder how xvertigox is gonna handle the DIY Atari color set... there's some parkour mappers, let alone slaughter, that submitted to that, lol.

  23. Hello Madam Catpho, I hope everything's going well over in Catpho-land.  I feel good and purple this Holiday season so far, and was hoping to extend the blessing to you.


    Also, random imposing question: do you mind if I borrow a copy of your genome? - For research and theory-crafting purposes, of course.  It will help develop a Crispr-Cat-9 enzyme that I will shelf for a rainy day, while I sort out various existential issues plagueing me (or keep it as a nuclear button).  After all, you never know when you have to unleash an army of infinite Catpho's, or Thanos-snap someone into a fluffy cat.  Rest assured, I'm not one to get too carried away, though.  (probably a weird topic to discuss openly)

    1. SuperCupcakeTactics


      If you feel you need an extra layer of security for the Crispr-Cat-9 it would be an honor having the enzyme's protective case hand-cuffed to my left wrist (the one that isn't possessed by the Creature from The Stars). The Egyptian hieroglyphics I bare there will shield the Crispr-Cat-9 from any psychic or ethereal threat. A Pharaoh's blessing, if you will.
