You could use Bruce-Lewis Script and take six months to do it. You have to worry about Lightning striking your computer, though, so be careful.
That's something that has changed since the good 'ol days. It used to be a guy who could or couldn't (Like Bruce Lewis) would make a big statement about how we were going to see something from him (like GLDoom) "soon". It takes a lot of cojones to say that, and it's something we haven't seen in a long time. Nowadays, it's just like a bunch of surprise random bug fixes, or bug fixes in response to people reporting bugs. But I think a developer should shy away from that golden chance to get shredded publicly for not delivering on those words. But a loss of these expectations, as I like to call them, means the life has gone out of the community.
Yes I have a loud mouth. Yes you deserve to be destroyed for not unloading the program in finished form on us. We want to be in awe of and be wowed by programming expertise got "expertise", Kid.
I think maybe the programming techniques you're referring to are those legendary coding skills that separated the men from the boys. What we're seeing here is more of the Apologetic Programming, or as I like to call them Sorry-Ass Excuses. I don't mean anyone in particular, just look at that out of control mess DOOM Eternal - It took like over a year after the originally planned release date, and it deserves these words for the mile long skid line trailing behind it from when it jammed on the breaks to try and stop itself from plowing through the brick wall of its release date and going all the way to where its final resting place was a year late in May 2020. R.I.P., you late piece of $hi7.
Don't get me wrong, I love DOOM as much as the next guy. But if you can't take the criticism, put the whip down and stop whipping your S&M love-donkey because it doesn't really love it.
Maybe there is room for some Legendary Programmers this year. Maybe it's a bunch of crying though. A lot of people weren't exactly cheesed when "Billy Baron and the Dancing Demons" had to show up minus a few of those Dancing Demons that I promised them. And that blows Donkey Dick.
