      Get also a fedora, then you'll be a truly handsome guy.

  2. It's so annoying when your country uses a QWERTZ keyboard layout and you try subconsciously to log on as "byyrak" all the time

  3. Is, like, anything even mildly entertaining happening around here lately?

      What would be considered entertained to you that could happen in here?
      new year is over.... :)

      Let me think of a new controversial thread...

  4. Hi

    2015 was three years ago

    Good night

    1. Myst.Haruko

      Myst.Haruko

      I still think that 2013 was only yesterday.

      2008 was 10 years ago. Man, where the fuck did it go.

      I'll make it even worse for ya: 2020 is just around the corner 

  5. So apparently I have an IQ of 136 ayy lmao XD

      CONFIRMED: IQ is meaningless

  6. Also a map of mine got a 4-star rating from Zalewa. I can die as a fulfilled man now.

    Why oh why can't I map like that anymore. :]

  7. Some days ago I got fed up with Firefox and switched to Vivaldi. You know, that one "continuation" of the oldfag Opera?

    So far I'm pleased EXCEPT FOR the fact that it constantly gives you various "page couldn't be reached" errors, so you have to refresh everything, like, 2-3 times in order for the browser to actually load anything. (It just did it, twice, when I tried posting this status. Any advice?)

    Other than that, it's very much like the good old beloved Opera 12.17.

  8. Just upgraded my 5 y/o version of Any Audio Converter (a program that does that stuff), oh my oh my what have they done to it

     

    ...when will I learn that one should not update his programs, ever

     

    P.S. It's 10x faster though. Looks ugly, regardless. :]

    1. CaptainManiac

      CaptainManiac

      This program has no updates?

    2. bzzrak

      bzzrak

      ^ Nah, it does, it's just that I realized that updating is a thing that should not be done.

  9. if pi includes all possible doom maps then why doesn't archimed have a cacoward yet

    @Memfis not so smart anymore eh? XD

    1. Ichor

      All of the cacoward-worthy classics are cancelled out by all of the terry wads.

    2. Memfis

      Inside of pi he already did. Pi contains everything that ever happened or will happen.

  10. 12-character filenames on /idgames OMG! So cool.

  11. Somehow I got internet in the village for a while. Countryside isn't what it used to be, unfortunately. :]

     

    I'm using these blissful moments to laugh at people getting annoyed by my Eagle07 MAP05.

    Aaaaand also there's the less blissful oversight of mine -- the exit switch being pressable from below, but who cares.

     

    Conclusion: Spectrophotometers = the ultimate lulz machines.

  12. Gonna leave into a village until Saturday. Cya.

    1. bzzrak

      bzzrak

      Umm, by Saturday I mean the next one, 04.11. (just if someone's as dumb as me)

  13. Nah, screw this. Hexen format is gibberish to me. Doom format -- one love.

      b t w, was going to make a new year eve avatar which would have been doom guy silhouetted on a hill looking at revenant missiles that explodes like fireworks. I figured it was to much work for something just used one year.

      Quote

      The phrase "Said the actress to the bishop" is an informal British exclamation, offering humour by serving as a punch line that exposes an unintended double entendre*. An equivalent phrase in North America is "that's what she said". Each phrase is an example of a Wellerism**, exposing a second meaning of what precedes it. The versatility of such phrases, and their popularity, lead some to consider them clichéd.

      Quote

      A double entendre is a figure of speech or a particular way of wording that is devised to be understood in two ways, having a double meaning. Typically one of the meanings is obvious, given the context whereas the other may require more thought. The innuendo may convey a message that would be socially awkward, sexually suggestive, or offensive to state directly.

      Quote

      Wellerisms, named after sayings of Sam Weller in Charles Dickens's novel The Pickwick Papers, make fun of established clichés and proverbs by showing that they are wrong in certain situations, often when taken literally. In this sense, wellerisms that include proverbs are a type of anti-proverb. Typically a wellerism consists of three parts: a proverb or saying, a speaker, and an often humorously literal explanation.

       

       

       

      ...ok, now wtf did I just read

  14. Folks, I have for some reason claimed a map in a ZDoom-format CP. And for some reason I want to try to use the advanced stuff (and fail miserably as always). Is there some sort of manual of Hexen format that would be "adapted" for Doom format freaks such as yours truly? Thanks!

     

     

    ...betcha I'll end up making a vanilla map anyway.

    1. Myst.Haruko

      Myst.Haruko

      Zdoom wiki is your best friend in this case and youtube tutorials.

  15. I've just figured out that I spend way too much time on the internet as of recently.

    As it's kind of a bad habit to have and doesn't really help me in any way either, I beg a moderator to completely prohibit me from visiting Doomworld for a week or so. Basically, I want a 1-week ban. Can be 2 weeks if you guys are really that sick of me. @esselfortium @Ichor @anyoneelsethatiscapableofbanningpeople could any of you awesome moderator cool badass folks help me out with this thing? Thanks in advance (as I hopefully won't be able to thank you later)!

     

    (posting this as a status update so that people don't potentially get worried about me. why would anybody, though? heh)

    1. Eris Falling

      Eris Falling

      Ask @Memfis about how well this works out, rofl

    2. Memfis

      Memfis

      Yeah, mods refuse to do this for some reason. Not sure why, I think it's perfectly understandable that the site can be kind of addicting, so why not help the users when they're trying to fight the addiction? In the Elastomania community the admins are always willing to do this because everyone knows how difficult it is to stop playing. Anyway, if this fails just start spamming the forum and eventually they will take action.

  16. goddammit I missed that spam thread by literally a second or so. What was in there? I feel the obsessive urge to know.

  17. Does anyone here speak Hebrew?

     

    I need the name "Nick Wilde" translated into that language, Google Translate won't cooperate.

    Does anyone have any particular suggestions for my new avatar (which will reflect this sad event)? :]

      bzzrak

      ^ Perhaps you've noticed my tradition of changing avatars to parts of Doomworld that have faded into oblivion. (It was Fredrik, then it was the rep counter. Now it has to be the status one, but I can't think of anything that would reflect that. So I'm asking if anyone has any ideas.)

      It says "Enable status updates?"

      I remember the glorious 13th March when nobody could figure out that you had to enable statuses in order to be able to post them. Good times.

    7. 42PercentHealth

      42PercentHealth

      Yeah, I read it, but I had to mouse over it.

       

      I have a thought... Maybe if there's a surviving screenshot of the forums page with 4 or more Slimz updates on it. Or anybody else for that matter. It's funny, but almost certain to earn you an enemy. :-P

  19. ...what did he do this time, could anybody explain? Ffs he hasn't even posted in a month.

  20. goddamn visplanes rant

     

    you can increase the blocking geometry in size as much as you want

    you can add as many blocking decorations as you want

    you can remove as much detail as you want

     

    but you'll still have 1337 137 visplanes

     

    Life would be SO much easier if the visplane limit was only slightly larger. 144, and my neural system would be in a better condition now.

     

    1. 38_ViTa_38

      Why not use a limit-removing port?

    2. bzzrak

      bzzrak

      Because that's for sissies, that's why.

       

      (or because the project which is not yours aims for vanilla compatibility, in this particular case.)

    3. Ichor

      Ichor

      Or you could map for a game with a higher limit, like Hexen or Strife.

  21. Hi, could you please stop blaming mappers for the fact that you're using a sucky port and deducting precious stars from them, and switch to a decent port instead? Thank you!

    No offence meant, btw.

      So is it wrong for the people to have their tastes or preferences?

      Of course not. But that is directed at the 'Why do people do this?' question. Regardless of your tastes or preferences, that people make stuff they enjoy should not be a source of bewilderment.

      As I just said, people are entitled to dislike what they don't like. 

       

      But it's an indisputable fact that the answer to the question 'Why do mappers make slaughtermaps?' is 'Because the mappers that make them also like them.' That isn't up for debate and there's no reason to be ignorant about that.

    8. 40oz

      40oz

      hi, 40oz here with another contrarian opinion. Every review, whether it's sloppily written or not, overly negative, or generally annoying, is useful as long as the reviewer is honest. Some players may not have a fun time playing a wad that is generally well received. It's not the player's responsibility to adapt their reviews to the general consensus of the wad. If the guy can't get it to work in Doomsday, that may be useful information for Doomsday users. It could also be useful information for the creator to make play instructions more clear and apparent in the description or text file. If you're someone who doesn't agree with that particular review, you're welcome to post your own positive review with maxed out stars to negate the impact that bad review did to the wad. But you shouldn't harp on someone for writing a bad review, because sometimes people with a very low threshold for fun can actually be extremely valuable.

       

      There are some people such as myself, who are in a rare position where many people tend to enjoy whatever I make because they appreciate that I'm taking the time to map at all. So when I get positive feedback for that, that can actually be kind of annoying for me because the review is closer to dishonesty than about the quality of my work. 

    9. DooM_RO

      DooM_RO

      @40oz

       

      I actually fixed the WAD but it has a host of problems such as very low FPS for some reason and Doomsday does not support Boom features such as Transfer Sky, which breaks the atmosphere I tried to create in the first map.

    10. Phade102

      Phade102

      Doomsday is a rather inferior port imo, prboom+ or gzdoom are the way to go. If the player uses a port that your map isnt designed for, @DooM_RO then thats not your fault, but the fault of the players.

    11. Steve D

      Steve D

      Coming in somewhat late, but I will -- as usual -- agree with everything @rdwpa said. While I also agree with @40oz that noting a map doesn't work in Doomsday is important info for Doomsday users, I strongly disagree with removing stars from a review just because the reviewer hasn't figured out that Doomsday is the bat-guano of sourceports. Funny thing is that when I came back into Doom, Doomsday was my port of choice for a couple years, but when I got a game-killing error in one of my maps that was not present in any other port, the bloom came off the rose. As time went on, Doomsday's weird, confusing launcher and the way it chugged like crazy caused me to drop it completely. That saddened me, because for awhile it seemed the most attractive of the GL ports.

       

      If someone wants to remain loyal to Doomsday, that's fine, but if they write a review in a world where all sourceports are free, easily obtained and installed, and compared, I think it's at least worthwhile to let them know they should try the map on other ports. I generally test my maps on GZDoom and PrBoom, sometimes Risen3D. I don't test on Doomsday, nor has anyone who ever beta-tested my maps. I'm glad I stumbled upon this thread, because maybe I should include, "Doomsday not recommended" in my write-ups. 

  22. edgy, sadistic rant

     

    Whenever I feel hopeless, I find some group on a social network or a site where people share depressive stories about how disappointed they are in people, society, humanity, anything. I laugh at the whiny sissies, and the hopelessness goes away like a charm.

     

    No, I don't feel bad at the slightest. I've already told you countless times that I'm the worst person this planet has ever seen.

     

    OK, maybe a leeeedle bit. But that's it.

    1. RUSH

      What kind of things do you say? I'm interested in hearing one of these rants, lol.

    2. bzzrak

      Just use Google Translate for that.....even if the traduction doesn't makes sense...

    4. RUSH

      Ahh, I forgot you could speak Russian. Do you live there? I honestly don't know. That's pretty cool that you know two languages, either way. I wish I knew a second language, but I'm pretty horrible with that type of learning. I couldn't even learn basic French.

    5. bzzrak

      bzzrak

      ^ I live in Serbia, but I go to a Russian school. It's kinda complicated. So that makes three languages, heh. :]

       

      You should totally learn a second one, man. One of those decisions that ends up being useful either way.

       

      Hey, if the edgy sadistic me learnt the monstrous beast that is Russian (it is, really), I'm sure that you (or anybody else, heh) will have no difficulties wth French!

    6. RUSH

      They say it's easiest to learn languages at a young age. The younger, the better. It's funny because I took French classes until Grade 9, yet I don't remember jack shit for some reason.

      Last time, only 40% of the total marks obtained in an exam will be evaluated. The portions are split as well.

       

      *sigh* But this time, 100% of marks are to be taken from exam only. No activities. Therefore, we have to study a WHOLE BOOK at the end.
