  1. Doomworld is fuckin' lame. Fuck you all later.

      It's really confusing when your post in a thread is quoted by a gang of people provoking you to react, and then when you respond, you become reprimanded for being an attention whore. This kinda stuff doesn't go unnoticed everennui (by me, anyway)

      Sounds fun. When was this?

      Seeya later, you will be missed.

      You know, I'm starting to miss Post Hell because it lets you know why people get banned or abandon this forum.

    7. bzzrak


      Just a like can't express how much I agree with the above gentleman.

    8. Lüt


      For those curious, what you're looking for probably starts somewhere between that and this.

      As you can see, one of the new features the IPS forum software introduced was the ability to hide posts, rather than to simply split or delete them. This allows posts such as the above to simultaneously be kept out of the way for regular users, yet remain within their original context for review/reference by staff. As a result, they're no longer stranded by themselves with no context in Post Hell, thus that forum will now only partially provide what you're looking for at best.


      If you honestly have genuine concerns, feel free to ask, but I'd hope a double-whammy of this status update and the linked post would be a no-brainer.

    9. Myst.Haruko


      Idk if I can ask, but that dude is banned or he just left as other people who get upset/angry over some stuff in this place?

  2. Why do I get a point against me for having a video, from this community that smears me? Fuck you Mordeth!

    1. Memfis


      Hey hey hey, don't insult the admins, that can end badly.

    2. Benjogami


      I’m thinking you got the point for posting it here, not because it simply exists. ;)

    3. dew


      You should get another point for suggesting that doomguy2000 somehow represents this community.

  3. Bwahahahaha

    Too bad slavery is illegal, because owning people is kind of fun.

    1. Memfis


      Is this an eye test?

  4. I'm so glad that I got a mesh chair. Now the farts don't get trapped in the cushion.

  5. Someone is using my online nickname to make posts that would be offensive to someone who is a homophobic, kink-shaming, bigot. They keep projecting their personal fears on to me in attempt to stir up some sort of drama. If I had to guess, it'd be either by some conviluted extension of my ex-girfriend (which I doubt) or some Nazi from Facebook or Doomworld. Funny thing is they've used a topic that I've joked about in the past, so it feels a little stalkerish.

    I know my name's ennui, but geez louise. Someone's more bored than me, evidently. I couldln't imagine wasting the 30 seconds it takes to register a porn video and then searching these highly specific videos and making comments like these. Kudos. You were clearly burned on the asshole with cigars when you were a baby.

    1. bzzrak


      Don't worry, I'm pretty sure it's not your girlfriend or a Nazi from Facebook or DW. Just a troll.

      (Not me if that's what you thought.)

  6. If you like realistic-ish WW2 shooters, check out, "Day of Infamy"

    It happens to be on sale right now on Steam.

      "but we hav call of dooty xDDDD"

    2. everennui


      variety is the spice of life, friend

      Three more days! I bought the digital deluxe version of WW2 like a slimey bastard, and am waiting ever so patiently.


  7. Has anyone here used a Udoo? I'm really impressed by what I've seen, but I've never used a Raspberry Pi or anything like that.

    1. Manuel-K

      At first I thought that you misspelled the drum (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Udu), but then the second sentence does not make any sense. ;-)


      I've got an old Raspberry Pi hooked up to the TV. I'm thinking about upgrading to the newest version.


      I would be interested in opinions about similar computers.

    2. everennui


      The Udoo x86 looks really awesome. Looks like something that would compete with my old PC. I'm looking for something for my mom, for basic web browsing, Skype and solitaire.

    3. Manuel-K

      My mother uses a MSI Cubi. Obviously more expensive, but they have an SSD and are very quiet (most of the time).

  8. https://www.callofduty.com/wwii/beta

    Come get some.

    I didn't know Raven Software made this. Neato.

    1. dmg_64


      Heh, they have been working on call of duties since 2010.

  9. If you do Ryzen, spend the extra on the Samsung B-Die (c14). Save yourself a headache. Oh My Fudgin' Gosh.

  10. Can someone please help me get Quakespasm working? I tried putting the pak0.pak and pak1.pak files into id1 folder and placing that inside of Quakespasm folder, but that didn't do anything.

    I get an error about QS, not being able to, "load gfx.wad". I found the error on google, followed the directions and it still wouldn't work.

    @YukiRaven? :D

    1. KVELLER


      think I came across this error a long time ago, but I can't remember how I fixed it.


      In any case, it seems something is preventing Quakespasm from reading the file. Maybe you're lacking permissions or something?

    2. Master O

      If you are running linux, I believe that the id1 folder must be capitalized, since that OS is case sensitive.


      ID1, instead of id1.  

    3. Master O

      Also, for Linux, pak0.pak and pak1.pak must be capitalized.


      PAK0.PAK and PAK1.PAK

    4. MrGlide


      are you still having issues @everennui?

    5. everennui


      I heard the opposite. So, I lowercased them... then read that, that was for linux. I use Windows 10. The only thing I can think of is maybe it's because it's x86? Maybe? I haven't been able to mess around with it too much for the last couple of hours. I tried Dark Places, too, but I don't have any luck with that either. I'm trying to think of a way that I can install it in C:\program files\... (not C:\program files (x86)\...) without messing with my other applications. I don't feel like having a convoluted fake directory for it.

      I'll be able to check it out in about 15 minutes or so when I get back home.

    6. everennui


      I figured it out. I was supposed to put the contents of quakespasm into the Quake Steam folder.

  11. PC Update:

    I'm writing from my new PC. I have the newest BIOS/UEFI, Video drivers and Malwarebytes installed. CPU is OC'd to 3.825 running at 1.32v. Cinebench was 18.35

    Got Doom II: Heck on the Planet Earth ( @bonnie sorry, I had to steal it) running on this baby. (If anyone's curious, it runs pretty darn good.)

    Still need to get a monitor.

    1. jdagenet


      hell yeah, being able to run doom is now a benchmark? hell yeah time for my new power pc

      Me too!!!

      Honestly, I think it was just the RAM last time, but it's very discouraging for someone who isn't skilled in building PCs.

    3. 42PercentHealth


      Good luck with the build, man! (On the video card box... is that partially covered digit an 8 or a 6?)


      I've ordered almost everything to build my PC, but all I have so far is an HDD. :-)

    4. everennui


      It's an 8 with a Ti after that.

    5. everennui


      What did you decide on?

    6. 42PercentHealth


      I think I'm going to end up settling for an Asus GTX 1060. It's a mite less powerful and feature-rich than the 1080, but it's also $300 cheaper. Also going with an Intel i5 7600 processor and Asus MB.

    7. everennui


      Nice choice on brand. Asus has tons of glowing reviews. I ultimately decided to go with Aorus/Gigabyte because I wanted to keep the MB matched with the video card. I don't know why. I'm sure it would have been fine. ...and the Crosshair 6 was stupid expensive. Turns out the RGB on the card will work in tandem with the MB. So that's an added plus. I'm kind of bummed that my 1700x will create a bottleneck for the GPU, but when the next Ryzen chip comes out, it should - hopefully - be fine.

    8. 42PercentHealth


      I also had the same thought -- if the brands match then there's just less chance of goofing up. You are right, it probably doesn't really matter, but I'm such a noob at this that I'd rather not take any chances.


      I don't know if you really have to worry about your CPU bottlenecking your GPU. From what I can tell, the CPU is relatively hands-off during most games, and a mediocre processor will not perform inferior to a high-end one. However, if you use your PC for calculation-heavy applications, then it can become an issue.

    9. everennui


      There are a few different profiles that I can use for it, so I figure that I'll just underclock it using Game Mode in the GPU (bios?).

      I'm very used to running a bottleneck, so I'm not too worried about it in the short term, but I don't really update very often and I want to get every minute out of this as I can. A bottleneck will make your video card work harder, and that's never optimal. The harm is probably negligble, but I'm going to try and optimize it as much as I can and mitigate any heat problems as much as I can.

    10. 42PercentHealth


      Speaking of graphics cards...




    11. everennui


      Just nine more posts to go!

  13. Is this close enough?

    The RAM that I picked, F4-3200C16D-16GTZR
    The QVL Support says, F4-3200C16D-16GVKB

    None of the RAM on Amazon matches the last 4 letters of the RAM on the motherboard manufacturers QVL.

      Should be close enough. If not. Send it back.

    3. everennui


      I just threw up a little in my mouth. Nothing cringes me harder than a grown man crying. FFDP. :( Why do you hate me?

  14. Minnesota is #1 in the country for ACT scores. Again! Colorado is #2 and Wisconsin is #3.

  15. My RAM is defective (I think.) Sending it back. ASRock told me to send back the mobo, too. I'm still kind of mad about everything, but overall they were really helpful over the phone.


    On top of everything, NVidia just raised prices on their cards 10% because of a GDDR5 shortage.

    1. geo


      Is it in even symmetrical amounts like 2 GB & 2 GB? That used to be an issue back in the day people would have 256 MB & 768 MB.

    2. everennui


      I'm not sure what you're asking. It came in a pack of 2. Each are 8Gb.

    3. geo


      Alright. At some point they came in packs of 1. So people would add something that was uneven such as you have two 8 GB, but if you had a 4 GB and an 8 GB that would cause crashes or id did a decade ago. Working IT I learned each time I hear "bad RAM after upgrade" I always fall back on a RAM mismatch.

  16. So despite my RAM being on the x370 Taichi's QVL - it's not working! I am pissed. ASRock told me they're having issues with it.

  17. Can anyone tell me what this is?


    1. everennui


      It's the only plug I can't figure where it goes. It's for fans, but I don't see a spot on the mobo. 

  18. My CPU is coming. Today I'll build my PC. I'm so excited and anxious at the same time.

      That's me.

  21. Why is it that the only people who play Deathmatch are the one's who can destroy you two seconds after you spawn?

    I guess the question answers itself.

      I probably won't get better because it's not worth playing. It's not fun.

      Hey, you have a great day too.

    6. everennui


      what's this all about now?

    7. elsaltaccount#9999

      Shit, i think i accidentally reported this, sorry.

    8. everennui


      Hey, it's the big tough anonymous guy again. Long time no see. What did you report it for? Harasment?

    9. elsaltaccount#9999

      I said it was an accident. -_-

      So uhh.. Aside from the shitstorm above,


      Its a shame you don't find DM fun. I started DMing online when I was super young and I got my ass handed to me at first but after a few sessions, you start realizing how little you really knew about navigating and strategizing in Doom despite feeling like a good player. There's a shocking amoung of naunce when you get right down to it. You learn to do little things like SR40 diagonally the instant you spawn since the high speed makes your enemy less likely to hit. You learn to wait a different amount of time before respawning on each death. Depending on the server and map, you might even have certain spawns (ones facing west) be silent which adds a whole other layer to your approach. This is all strategy just for spawning, the reality is there's a whooole lot of little skills like that involved in PVP Dooming which you can hone and add up over time. Improving as a player is part of what's kept me here for so long (I say that, but I'm probably only a big better than I was when I was like 13)


      Anyway, if you ever get to the point where those some old Doom AI antics over and over and over again start to feel stale and you really want to put your skills to the test, maybe you'll consider giving DM another shot. If not, hey, that's cool too. It's hectic, fast-paced and challenging and I know some people genuinely aren't really into that kind of thing in their games, different strokes and all that.

    11. Doomkid


      Oh and getting good enough to do reasonably well in DM does NOT require playing every single day, rofl. Not even close. Maybe an hour here and and hour there throughout the week.
