  1. I played Demonsteele for a while in one of the computers in my school and now the left click sounds weird.

     

    ...I think I broke it. But it still works!

      Damn... Demonsteele claims the life of another mouse.

  2. I keep finding threads that I didn't know that existed. Anyways, one day that I started messing around with the Quake logo, and this thing came out. People interpret it in different ways, from a "T" letter to "a cultist avatar or whatever" (I don't remember who said it, but it was funny af).
  3. Ok, so I'm still a little confused about custom titles. I know that if you say something really stupid you'll get one based on what you said, but can you choose one yourself given enough time? Or do you just have to stick with a normal rank?

      I am confused why cutom titles seem to be so fascinating for you.

      "Member" = boring.

       

      "Didn't know being a forum staple was a bad thing"

      "Will DDR for food"

      "is not the cake" (whatever that means...)

      "Wadist Oldschoolexual"

      "Won the popularity contest" = interesting. Even if these were not all intended to be flattering, they sometimes say something about the person, and they always help the person to stand out on the forums.

       

      "I really should think before I post"

      "Banned"

      "While I will admit ..." = yeah, no. These are the types of titles we try not to get. :-P

      @Nine Inch Heels ^That's pretty much why.

      Custom titles are cool, makes a newbie like me feel a bit special, kinda like whenever a mook support stands next to a hero of the story. The mook either gets inspired or jealous, usually never the same, but if he does remain clueless, it is played for comedy.

       

      However, much like food and black humor, not everyone gets it. Which is either good, aka it has a value, implying the "worth" of the "hero" in question, or bad, having some people who worked their way up to become respected by members not getting some sort of a "promotion" from the ranks of Senior Member, Member, or Junior Member. These titles feel like "chaingunner, sergeant, zombieman" respectively, nowadays. Some sort of a reward system, even if far-fetched and hardly possible to achieve, would still be nice and might motivate members to become more active and contribute more. One might say the "reputation system" is already like that, but there is simply some magic within words that variables, no matter how huge, cannot have. Like, someone having 1000 likes but still titled "senior member" looks kinda bland, like "1000 likes, wow, such experience! Much amaze!" then seeing the "senior member" feels like "oh, that is a lot of posts. Good *scroll on*".

      Can I get a custom title that screams about how much of a special little snowflake I am, even though I'm new and most people don't know me? It would really help my one wad I'll release one day, then whore around everywhere shamelessly, to be taken seriously.

       

      My dreams of being a super unique Forum Spammer were dashed when I found out just anybody can be one. 

    6. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      @Fonze I was just curious. Can't I ask about things I don't know? I just thought it would be nice to have one. And why should I care if people know me or not? That's never been my goal.

       

      Sorry if I'm being annoying, but I don't know what else to say.

      The way I see it, you keep asking not only because you're curious, but because you primarily want one. If you want to speed the process up, you can actually just keep asking, and one day your custom title will be: "Keeps asking frequently about how to get a custom title"

      ;-)

    8. Nevander

      Nevander

      Or you end up being boring long enough to get "why don't I have a custom title by now?"

      Then I'll just shut up.

      I wasn't referring to just asking about them, and in part I was being a tad facetious to point out the ridiculousness of it in a comical way.

    11. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      Well, I'm sorry. If anything, this reminds me that I still have tons of things to learn.

  4. Well that's... An interesting way to deal with them...
  5. I have a question: why do some demons have mechanical stuff on them? I don't know if I missed something in the manual, but it's weird to me.
  6. It doesn't feel right to me when people from the USA say that they're american. I mean, America is the whole continent, not a country. It just sounds like if they owned whole thing.

     

    Now, if someone says that they're calling themselves american because the USA is in that continent, then I can call myself an american as well because I'm from Chile.

      i see what you're saying, but i think for most people it's just so ingrained into our minds to refer to North America as just America. United States is a better way to say it now that i think about it.

    3. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      @moonboot I understand that it's hard to stop certain habits, specially if it becomes kind of a cultural thing.

      If tell from where I come, no one will know that country, so I keep silence.

      My passport says my nationality is American. What does that say about me?

    6. Tracer

      Tracer

      It's because our country is called The United States of America.  It is quicker to say "American" than it is to say "I'm from the United States of America."

       

      It is similar to how even though there are 25 U.S. states that have town called Springfield, people from those towns will usually just say they live in Springfield.

       

      I wonder what else Americans could call themselves if not American.

    7. 42PercentHealth

      Personally, I just consider my audience. If I'm talking to a bunch of US citizens, then I will just say "Americans" to refer to US citizens, because that's how everyone here speaks. (What is language if not a convention?) However, I am aware that people on the other side of the equator also count, so I tend to be more careful of my wording on forums like DW.

       

      @MysteriousHaruko, what country are you from? I'm sure I've heard of it. :-)

      We're americans too. But at least, in South America, we can differentiate each other like chileans, peruvians, bolivians, argentinians, brazilians and such...

    9. Tracer

      That is not he fault of U.S. Citizens.  Besides, anywhere in the world you go, if you say "America", everyone thinks of the United States.  I think this is due to America (that's the United States of America since someone will undoubtedly ask me to specify if I don't) embedding itself all over the whole fucking world...but that's a whole other discussion.  

    10. 42PercentHealth

      ^^ This deserves two likes: one for the opinion that we don't belong all over the world, and one for saying "whole other" rather than "whole 'nother."

       

      I'm not really a grammar nazi, but that one kinda irks me! :-P

      I just don't think we need to have a physical or spiritual presence anywhere outside of our borders or embassies.  This idea of a global culture is slowly destroying the cultures of every nation.

       

      Hell...America is the "cultural melting pot" and look how we're doing.  I don't want the whole world to end up like this.  I always liked the idea of a cultural salad more.  Yeah, everyone is living together in harmony, but each ingredient maintains it's own identity and isn't lost in he cultural fondue.  

       

      Heheh...it always amused me how people think we have our own "American Culture" when what it really is is a mutt culture produced by everyone being ordered to embrace all cultures lest they be labeled a xenophobe.  Fuck that.  Don't be hateful to anybody.l,  respect everyone...but maintain your culture.  Nurture it.  Otherwise the whole world will end up becoming a boring, gray place instead of the potentially beautiful, multicultural world that it once was and still could be.

       

      Rant over.

  7. Same here. I just assumed it.
  8. I think I'm kind of an hypocrite. I say that Doom 1/2 aren't among my favorite games, but still I've replayed them an insane amount of times, and I know every secret on them.

     

    I think it's because I like more immersive games like Unreal, where you can feel that you're in a place that could be real. Or System Shock 2, the only game that has managed to make chills go down my spine with just creepy dialog.

     

    I'm seeing Doom the wrong way. It never tried to build a fantastic atmosphere like other games did later, it wasn't id's objective. But it has a gameplay unseen in any other FPS, and I should learn to love that.

      Just accept that fact, that you like Doom and life will be easier.

      Ewwwwww you're so repulsive go jump out of a window, do it now

      how DARE you

      You're a living disgrace to this community

      delete your account, you and only you are what ranks this community so low in other people's eyes

       



      j/k, you're cool :]

       

      Anyway, you can love different games for different qualities. And you can love them differently.

      I mean, I'm just the same in my hypocrisy. My favourite game ever is MDK, but I haven't even booted it up for a year, because I've completed it, and I'm not yet skilful enough to replay it on a higher difficulty, heh. Meanwhile, I've been playing Doom for 1,5 years now, barely playing anything else.

      So I guess your attitude is normal. Or I'm a hypocrite as well... oh damn.

       

      mandatory agitation: if you haven't played MDK yet, do it now, the ending alone is worth it

    3. KVELLER

      KVELLER

      Well, I live in a a one-story house, so jumping out of a window won't do much :P

       

      I haven't played MDK, but I'll make sure I play it in the future!

  9. This is awesome! I didn't know this was thing!
  10. Due to fuck ups like the one described in this thread, I'm now used to stop, make sure no one is in my immediate vicinity, and then save.
  11. Holy shit... I didn't even think that was possible. Unless you played them as they were released, of course.
  12. I don't seem to be able to talk about personal stuff in Doomworld, even if a thread allows it. Maybe because I don't feel like I actually know anyone in here.

      Come on dude, you've been here for 3 months. Of course you don't really know the folks here yet, and the folks don't know you yet. It's normal, in some time you'll get assimilated and become one of usTM and lose the last remains of your individuality. We all went thru that.

      It's just hard for me to trust people, I guess. Not that I think that you would do anything against me, but... I don't know. I'm an introvert, so I can be hard to understand sometimes, even for myself.

      If all of us weren't introverts, we'd be hanging out IRL and not on some stupid forum about some stupid game.

  13. OpenAL Soft seems to be buggy in versions prior to the removal of FMOD EX
  14. I've never actually never been defeated by a WAD, mainly because with the pile of garbage I used to call a laptop I'd just end up with single digit framerates in big encounters, forcing me to stop playing anyways.
  15. I think the best thing I've managed to do is finishing The Ultimate Doom and almost all of Doom 2 in UV with pistol starts and avoiding secrets. A considerable amount of saves were used, though.
