    Why are so many indie games retro-styled?

    At the same time the system was sold incredibly cheaply and the library of PSX games absolutely dwarfed their contemporaries. You could do better with a PC, but a gaming PC was way more expensive. That wide reach is how you get a generation of gamers-turned-developers who participate in game jams that replicate the look of PSX games without any of the era-specific limitations.

    DSDhacked [unlimited everything]

    I'd like to think of it more as a re-implementation of certain selected desirable features, with the benefit of hindsight and with an eye towards portability among ports with codebases that resemble the original source release. A lot of ZDoom's excesses (at least when I was modding Zandronum) were enabled by the tons of extra codepointer functions and the fact that you could compose expressions. And one of those functions just happened to be "Run ACS Script", which opened up the entirety of the ACS language and its myriad of available functions. Graf mentioned custom inventory items and I recall seeing some hot nonsense with those too. A hypothetical DECORATE for frametables would just mean I don't have to open up WhackEd to do a thing the engine was already capable of doing. Seems like a convenience and accessibility win. Odamex was the first GPL port to have slopes, and our port is compatible enough to play the demo reel. I haven't looked the physics of it in a hot minute, but the code is there for the taking if someone is interested.

    Would this be portable to ports that have a fixed-size state table, so long as the table was big enough for the mod you wanted to play? What about non-Boom ports like Crispy Doom?

    Cursed Doom Images

    When you see it...
  5. Odamex 0.9.5 has been released. Download it from Sourceforge or Github. This is a small point release that fixes an exploit allowing players to spy other players that they weren't supposed to. It is highly recommended that all servers update to 0.9.5 as soon as possible.
  6. Odamex also has this feature, through the wad console command (as in wad doom2.wad valiant.wad), and I can attest that it's quite convenient. You can configure extra locations for this command to look through (either via config or through DOOMWADDIR), it will automatically add an IWAD to the front of the stack if you don't specify one, and you don't even need to use a .WAD suffix when you type in the command - so the above example could be shortened to wad valiant, which is about as short as you can get.

    Nintendo are being jerks again

    Smash is now no longer the only platform fighter out there. You don't need Nintendo to give you a fighting game without motion inputs anymore. Rivals of Aether: Brawlhalla: Slap City:

    New rule against offsite harassment

    You misunderstand. Doomworld cannot de-escalate in a vacuum. You cannot solve anything with rules specifically designed to be invoked by outsiders targeting doomworlders. Far more effective would be for other boards to enact similar anti-harassment rules, because then people have skin in the game.

    New rule against offsite harassment

    That's something you definitely should take up with the other board's administrators, because their policies are outside of Doomworld's control.

    If I thought the moderation team were a bunch of antisocial assholes, I wouldn't be here. In fact, I would leave. I would find another community with a vibe and a moderation style more to my liking. As it stands, I prefer it here.

    New rule against offsite harassment

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say "No". I'm actually glad that some of the moderators here aren't afraid to play the "Bad Cop" without going completely off the rails. It's only a problem if everyone behaves that way.

    New rule against offsite harassment

    But what does this have to do with the new rules?

    Huh? If anything it's the opposite.

    New rule against offsite harassment

    If you think that the moderators are going to abuse rules or enforce them in bad faith, then there is no set of rules that would ever protect you.
