    Doom2 1.9 wad bugs

    Ironic the number of people who are "fucking sick" of playing the original levels when there are so many "classic" style episodes about these days... I get what Nagelfar is saying. It seems strange that there would be an "official" patch that's full of strange bugs. Monsters stuck in walls is not the most professional way to make a game. I don't know, maybe Microsoft bought id Software. That's the only logical explanation.

    But what about the "open letter"? Do you think that's fake too? It confirms virtually every rumour I have heard about the film.

    Yes, but a lot of what was said in this "fake" interview was confirmed in the open letter, unless that was also fake...aargh, it makes my head spin. This film is going to be complete bollocks. End of story.

    I'm confused. I heard that the Doom film was going to be set on some random planet. Do you mean to say it will actually be on Phobos? I didn't really mind them setting the Doom 3 story on the planet rather than its moons. At the end of the day it was still Doom. I'm not prepared to forgive the film for any deviation because it ISN'T Doom. By the way, I'd just like to point out that I have played most of the Community Chest 2 wad and if I was reviewing it, it would have earned a perfect score...just like the first CChest, which I was in the process of playing through when I gave up Doom for racing cars. :D There, I DO like some wads.

    Maybe they chose retarded humans instead of CGI demons because today's CGI is, frankly, crap. It looks just as fake alongside real human beings as those old animatronic (or whatever it's called) skeletons in Jason and the Argonauts, or the Gorn in Star Trek: TOS. I still cannot see how three blokes called Goat, Baron and Pinky are supposed to be scary. I mean, Goat, Baron and Pinky for fuck's sake! They sound like the line-up for a children's television show. I know I used to bitch about E1 style wads (you play eleven of the bloody things back to back then try to smile), but I surprised myself by wishing for an E1 style film! I reckon we should make our own Doom film and release that. It would be laughable crap, but it's better than a load of Resident Evil bollocks with a SWAT team creeping around Uranus.

    Pretty decent web comic featuring news of the Doom film here: http://penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2004-12-08&res=l

    Perhaps not, but he's meant to be the "scary" one.

    I come to check up on the progress of the Doom Community and find the some monkey with a typewriter has decided to take the royal piss out of everyone by remaking Ghosts of Mars and slapping a Doom label on it. What is the world coming to? Do we not have enough spasticated film makers bunging up the "Now Playing" lists with their half-arsed brain farts? Who in the world wants to watch a film about Doom that features none of the elements that actually constitute Doom? Let's review the brave new interpretation of Doom: The main villain, a retard with his arse glued to a chair (now THAT'S the villain to finally overshadow Michael Myers) will be played by none other than semi-talented Englishman and former Gamesmaster, Dexter Fletcher. Americans will know of his formidable talent: he got a bit-part in Band of Brothers. He managed to get about ten minutes' screen time in total. The rest of the cast seems to have been hand-picked from that well known elite acting core, the Sheik's Sons of Ummer Gummer Land. There are the usual token female parts played by two unknown pieces of totty: one will be the sexy, intelligent scientists with a cleavage that is bursting out of her tight top. She'll be attractive and unconventional, clear-headed in a crisis, and she'll be the sex object who survives to the end. The other will be the rough and tumble Vasquez rip-off who could beat any man at a wrestling match. There will be one male character who panics and nearly gets everyone killed; there will be another male character working to a secret agenda. The rugged male lead and the sensual female lead will take some time out from the cripple-bashing to have a quick shag in some shadowy room, their frolics accompanied by piano music. There'll be some blood, some nipple pokies (or peanut smuggling if you prefer), a few "really memorable" one-liners. I can just see Rachel Weiss starring in this piece of crap. If you think about it though there is one redeeming feature. I can't remember what it is. Oh wait, yes I can. The title is pretty ironic in an amusing way, because it sort of sums up the career prospects of all involved in this pointless tragedy.

    Pray for Death returns to the fold

    Lads, I have made a decision about Pray for Death. I have decided not to continue reviewing Doom wads. There will be no further review updates. Suffice to say for now that I am genuinely tired of reviewing wads and my decision has nothing to do with any person or any previous hostilities. ;p UPDATE: Things are explained in greater detail on my website. Pray for Death Good luck with your wads, and may Doom live forever.

    Pray for Death returns to the fold

    Well I'm no speedrunner, but when my life is in danger I'm no slouch either! I thought I had got "running away" down to a fine art while playing AV on ultra violence. Apparently not! EDIT: sorry if I'm being thick Ryback, but what does conniptions mean mate?

    So this is what I have to do to get a girl?

    Smack her arse and say "Hello darling, fancy a curry?"

    Pray for Death returns to the fold

    Just to address this point, I've played the map again several times and I just seem to randomly explode no matter how fast I run. The map is crap, accept it! ;p

    Pray for Death returns to the fold

    Hello everyone! The drama queen is back. I forgot I had started this thread, sorry if it seemed like I was ignoring everyone. No, who's been criticising me this time? Do you mean in this thread? I have read it and found most of it to be very useful so thanks guys. Ryback, were you making a joke? Pray for Death is down for reasons unknown. I doubt it was a hacker attack because, well, what would be the point. I was working on updating the site but to be honest I have enjoyed my time away from Doom. So Pray for Death is no longer a priority for me. EDIT: If I do decide to abandon P4D then it won't be because of anyone bitching about me. I have moved on from that, if anyone else hasn't then I'm not bothered to be honest. I think I've just been insulted using 1337. I can't understand it since I'm older than 14 and I don't watch Pokemon, but I am all offended anyway. Don't start on Melfice either, he's a decent bloke, and without meaning to start another flame war or insult anyone here decent blokes seem to be few in the Community. Another reason why I haven't busted my balls trying to get P4D back up. Again, thanks for the constructive feedback guys.

    Legacy Error

    Wow, you got PAR going on Legacy? Hmm, well it was months ago when I tried and I was using an older version of Legacy. I notice that the more recent the version of Legacy, the more complexity it can handle.

    Legacy Error

    Most large maps are fine. It's the really huge ones maps with massive architectural detail like Phobos: Anomaly Reborn and Equinox map 13 that Legacy can't really cope with. If you're getting this error message on one of the standard Doom maps, I'd say there's some sort of problem either with Legacy itself. I run it on Windows XP with no issues. I'd recommend either seeing if there is a more up to date version of Legacy or just reinstalling the current version.
