    Is Doomworld secured for the future ?

    Nothing in life is certain except the end of life. If Doomworld did die, I'm sure most of us would find some new home, somehow. It would suck to lose over two decades of post content, but it wouldn't be the end of the world (well, it would be the end of Doomworld). The comment about a lot of veteran members leaving. I wouldn't think too much about. Sure, it sucks to notice someone isn't around anymore, someone who's posts you enjoyed, a person you liked. For a community that has been around this long, the active members really are subject to change over time. As for the number of staff/moderator members, I think it is all fine. I rarely ever see any posts that need obvious mod attention, so that shows there are enough mods to do the job. Not having many updates to the site is kind of a Doomworld staple. I remember for the longest time the forums were running on some archaic version of vBulletin for reasons. I'd say try not to worry about it too much. Whatever happens, happens. Doomworld is still here today, and tomorrow is another day. I don't know why I felt an urge to reply. I'm usually just a member roaming the outsides. Maybe I feel thoughtful this evening, or something.

    What Was Your Last Purchase?

    It has been a long ass time since I have bought a game, but today that changed. I noticed Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom was 50% off on GoG, so I picked it up. It will be a while before I get to playing it, but the price was nice.

    What Was Your Last Purchase?

    My coffee maker crapped out on me, so I finally went out to buy a replacement yesterday. It was a cheap one, but it does the main thing I want it to do; make coffee.

    What are you currently reading?

    Oh how greatly I could be expanding my mind with the thousands of books available at just one of the many public libraries around me. I could be learning about a dizzying array of non-fiction topics, the possibilities are almost limitless. I could learn about many of the world's cultures and histories. I could expand my brain with many books that delve deep into philosophy and other grand topics. I could go to the fictional side and have many great adventures and mysteries. Oh so many ways to exercise my brain. I'm working on the third Where's Waldo book. One of the ones I had as a kid.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Oh man, that is one of my favourite games. The only things I don't like are the military aspect and how later culture requirements get ridiculous. I haven't played it in a very long time though, so havent' had it running on modern computers. I do remember that the music can cause the game to crash. I can't remember the fix exactly I found when I had it running on Windows 7. I just remember a replacing a dll file with one from Zeus(kind of a successor to Pharaoh). Oh, I found a post that explains things: https://www.gog.com/forum/pharaoh_cleopatra/instafreeze/post15 . Not sure if that is what is causing your crashes. When I had it running on XP, it never crashed on me, so I have a memory of it being a very stable game otherwise.

    Funny TextSynth Prompts!

    For some reason, this amuses my dumb mind greatly. Now I'm imagining Doomguy talking to a suit of green armour.
  8. I've messed around with level editors in quite a few games, but nothing as extensive as Doom. I think the OG Starcraft is one I did the most with. DRoD! I love that game. It is kind of like Doom, in that user content is keeping the game alive. Not to say the official 5 games aren't worth playing and will take quite a bit of time to master.
  9. If you had to set up your desk in any spot in E1M1, where would you put it? 

    1. Use


      Hmm great question. It would have to be the little secret area overlooking the zig-zag nukage room.

    About the people who aren't here anymore

    I'll take that. Looking back, Sodding Death was quite cramped. And yeah, hard to go lower than Gene Bird's contributions there.
  11. Your data will be flyin'. This new laptop is my first SSD and it is quite amazing. My old laptop would take quite a few minutes to fully boot up (when the cpu and disk are done doing whatever startup stuff they do). Restarting for an update isn't much of a hassle now, with a SSD.

    [GZDoom][Abandoned] Obstacle V2

    >>>>>Abandoned Link<<<<<< Let's see how quickly this sinks into the wads & mods abyss. I could be lazy and just copy/paste from the slightly older ZDoom forum post, but I won't. What is this? Just a little something I had an idea for, for quite a long long time. So long ago that I have a decade old video of the concept. I may post that video here, I may not (Spoiler: I didn't). Basically it is a series of challenge rooms. Avoid getting damaged and get to the room exit and maybe you will get the gold medal! All the rooms are just quick little challenges, except for a few dumb ones. Which ones are dumb? I'll leave that up to whoever plays it. But not now, it isn't done. It is getting close to the end and mostly just needs testing. I can do some of the testing myself, but maybe I'll need help. One challenge room is quite bare and needs detailing. All the other rooms are complete, or nearly complete. I'll probably need a better music track. And oh, it obviously needs a better name.

    [GZDoom][Abandoned] Obstacle V2

    I guess this is abandoned at this point. There is some things to play around with, so I guess I will upload the file in whatever state it was in. Link here

    About the people who aren't here anymore

    Now and then I'll check out some older threads. I'll see people I remember from back in the day and check when they last visited. Feels weird when I see it has been over a decade since their last visit. I'd be surprised if anyone noticed I stopped coming around here though. I guess I should try not to take that too personally.
  15. Just started the second Where's Waldo book. It's the only one I haven't looked at since I was young. Should be a good time.


    I'm such a fucking child.

    WADs/Mods far away from the Doom/FPS formula

    I need to keep this topic in mind for when I can actually play games on this damn laptop. And damnit my letters are slanted.

    I have surprise dental surgery Monday

    Years ago I had my wisdom teeth pulled. I wasn't put to sleep for it, but it all went fine. I've heard stories of people having pain afterwards, but I was fine and didn't need any of the pain meds the prescribed. I asked to see them in the middle of them being pulled out. It is crazy how much of the tooth is hidden.

    What country are you from?

    I feel that Canada is a fine place to live/exist in.
  19. I don't have much to add to this conversation, but I'm on Windows 11 and I don't find it to be too bad. It wasn't by choice though. I ordered a laptop that said it was windows 10, but came with 11. I had a few issues with it, but they were mostly all just driver issues. Every now and then I'll get a nag notification that I should log in with an online account, but that is easy to dismiss. It could change at any point though.
  20. I'm stealing this reply and using it as my own.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I've been flailing around in Civilization 3, pretending that I know how to actually play. I did get one win on the easiest difficulty, so I have that. I tried the next difficulty up and it's a leap up in difficulty. I feel like I need to engage with more of the systems, which is good. I kind of steamrolled with my victory on the easiest skill.

    What is your favorite font?

    I don't have a favourite font, but I do have a dumb font joke. What do you pay when you import a fancy font? The serif tariff. It isn't even really a joke.
  24. I have to say, Korn's newest album is quite solid. Of course, you have to like Korn in the first place.
