  1. In order to improve my mixing skills, I make a point to periodically return to the most poorly recorded source material I can get my hands on. Metallica's ...And Justice For All is probably the most poorly produced big budget album that's ever been made, so from time to time I pull up the tracks for Blackened and get to work. 


    This time I decided to throw all caution to the wind and completely rework the sound, and I'm quite pleased with the result. You'll want to listen on good speakers or headphones:



    1. Bashe


      Pretty neat. I like the different things people have done with master tracks of this album, most notably the bass being added back finally. It's just too bad they aren't all available. I'm hoping later this year when AJFA gets reissued, they'll have a mix with the bass in it, though I am not holding my breath.

    What do you think of Rage?

    The gunplay is great ans the environments are some of the best ever seen in a game. Unfortunately everything else falls flat.

    How to properly improve layout skills?

    What qualifies as an overabundance of doors and corridors in your view?
  4. This is a little odd and probably sounds silly, but it's been bugging me for a while now. I really like the use of color in these screenshots and art pieces and would like to emulate it in my own stuff, but I'm having trouble figuring out what they all have in common that I find so pleasing and putting it into words. Specifically I'm trying to figure out a way to systematize whatever rules are at play here. Can anyone help me out? (This is largely random stuff I've saved over the years, so it's all uncredited. Sorry!) I guess "comfy" is the best descriptor. I know brown, grey and primary colors are somewhere in the formula, but what is it about how they're used that gives these shots their magic?
  5. You have the right idea, but it's definitely a little more nuanced -- why doesn't FIREBLU or SLADWALL combined with lava look good, for example? What makes contrasting colors look good in one instance but not another?

    If you use Facebook, limit your usage or delete your account entirely. Even people you hang out with regularly who you know don't have lives any more exciting than yours can seem untouchable when you only see them only posting a highlight reel of their life:

    The logic of map flow

    No they don't.
  10. Link How do you not notice your AI is suddenly fucked after a single typo?
  11. What would you prefer from a gameplay/immersion perspective:


    A: Exploring through the shadows, you see a mysterious rail station lit up against the darkness, perhaps through a window, and navigate to it.


    B. After exploring through the shadows, you unexpectedly happen upon a mysterious rail station, lit up against the darkness.

      I guess having something to navigate towards, that can also serve as a point of orientation, seems to fit my personal taste the most. So, "A" it is.


      But I also like surprises, so it's not like I wouldn't like "B".


      In fact, I'm not really sure which option I like the most, really, but I guess I'll just stick to "A" for the time being.

      b, seems like an luring contrast.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    High-quality playable maps were made for the Doom 3 alpha before Doom 3 was released: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/101173-some-e3-alpha-2002-custom-maps/

    Some E3 Alpha (2002) custom maps

    Maps rivaling the quality of actual Doom 3 maps, made before the game was released *and* that are playable? Who the hell made these?

      Sounds good. Let's hope there's nothing in terms of longterm issues or somesuch.

      There shouldn't be, I'm already staring to walk again!

      It sucks after a surgery where you lose the ability to move. I remember being immobilized for a while and it was not a pleasant experience. Wish you all the best on your recovery Marn.

  19. In the hospital with rhabdomyolysis. Woot.

      Get well Marn. After all, those demons aren't gonna kill themselves! (Actually they do but that's not the point!)

      Get well soon!

  20. The solution is that Tim Willits isn't good at writing storylines.
  21. You would think someone would have figured out a solution to perfectly qualified job candidates being nixed in the process of filtering out applicants by now.
