  1. Maulotaurs in Heretic cannot be targeted but can target others (similar to archviles), is there a way to make any enemy to target the tall guys via infighting?

      Does that work for any wad or just custom wads, by me?

      You can put that decorate in a wadfile or a zipfile and it should work for just about anything.

      Two days later I tried what you said, thank you!

  2. Hmm, say you're in a room, you just killed a bunch of enemies, there is nothing else in the room, some seconds later you hear the sound of a fireball crashing into a wall, but there are no more enemies.

     

    Random non-existent fireballs crashing sound, I think I've read about this somewhere, but anyone out there knows the reasons of this phenomenon?

      Really? I've never encountered it.

      Xyzzy01

      I think I know why. Mancubus fireballs are known to clip through walls into the void. They can wrap-around, so you probably heard one crashing into a wall from outside the map.

      Hmm I don't think so, it happens in Doom 1 too.

      You know what, Galileo? One of the reasons I follow you is that you're doing pretty cool and extensive writeups, and your comments otherwise are among the most charming ones around here. So, I'm gonna have to agree with rdwpa here. You're too awesome to just

      But I get it, at times one just has to rant, but doesn't feel like putting in lots of effort either. I can relate. ;-)

      Sometimes I'm not sure if the way I express or what I'm going to express is going to be or look like non-necessary posts, or shitposting, so I erase/write again/erase/write somewhere else. I'm not going to use -... -... -... if that's the issue, but sometimes I need to rant and the DWMC already played these wads so, my apologies for the format.  

       

      And thanks!, it's nice to read that my comments are charming for the people. 

  4. You know when you write a long thoughtful answer, put your heart into the words, feeling every letter, click Submit, and the thread was eliminated?

      Yeah, I've had that happen too. If I go into writing a post that I know is going to be long and thoughtful, sometimes I'll write/edit it in notepad, then just copy/paste into the thread. For less lengthy posts, I do what rdwpa said, and ctrl-C just before posting.

      YouTube has been frustrating me lately, because sometimes I write a long comment, hit the "comment" button, and then it says "Comment failed to post. By the way, we deleted your comment, so all you can do now is refresh the page and type it all over again. That is, of course, assuming you remember everything you wrote before, including time stamps. BUHWAHAHAH!!"

       

      ... Or something along those lines.

  5. Specific fails in Doom: finding the secret SSG/BFG after everything is already dead, five consecutive maps.

    1. Ichor

      Or trying to shoot a barrel to kill some nearby enemies, but they keep getting in the way, until finally they're all dead...

       

       

      ...and the barrel remains untouched.

    2. Da Werecat

      Da Werecat

      And the barrel explodes with the last monster already dying.

  6. Been enjoying so much Joshy's Resurgence, like every single map has been fun for me from start to end, until I got to map 23 with my first two lite-rage quits.

     

    There's an specific combination of monsters in whatever map I usually tend to feel, irritated with: imps everywhere and roaming chaingunners. It's like RNG rollercoaster, always feeling fireballs in my back while bullets in my face, blockmap fiesta. 

     

    (I think I'm going to create a thread about Specific combination of monsters you like/dislike, yep.)

  7. Is there a way to get Spectres more visible in Pr/GlBoom+? They are almost invisible when I'm in movement.

     

    Nine of every 10 spectres bite me first before I could even spot them.

      The fuzzy effect highly relies on software rendering instead of hardware, I don't think GLBoom-plus supports it.

      Tried them both, the first one make them look like regular pinkies. With the second one, also like regular pinkies, do I have to set translucency on in GlBoom+?  

  8. A map (Eviltech - 31) with over 1000 SS Nazis in hordes, is considered slaughter or grinding or a third option?

      i'd consider the level a grind, since you're not given quite as much resources to just steamroll through them, and their hitscans can wear on you really really fast.

      galileo31dos01

      For sure, I have some ideas in mind, why?

  10. I'm playing Harmony, or trying to, the difficulty is sometimes ridiculous, it's not "wow this is so hard and exciting", but "how is it possible that I cannot be in front of one single shooter enemy and not be killed in one second or be able to dodge a single cell"... I'm not exaggerating or mad, it's true, the enemies seem to deal the double damage per hit, compared to Doom. Two shots from a chaingunner and my health goes from 99% to thirty something. 

  11. Deep water effect, why does it affect monster's vision like this?:

  12. Things that make you loose your patience in one second: captcha trolling

     

    I follow the indications and the captcha says incorrect... 15 times, each page. Besides that, it sometimes says "select all squares containing a Car" and there's one f***ing car divided in every square and I never know what to select because apparently if you select more than 3 squares it's just wrong ugh...

      I fucking hate Captchas. The worst ones are the ones that ask you to click every image with something like a car in it or a store front. Then the ones you clicked fade out and more come in. FFS isn't there a more efficient and less annoying way to prove I'm human?

      No, it's not a suicide. You're killed by somebody called "Lava".

      The lava is not damaging, fortunately. On the other side, the spider killed me, but at least the map is done.

      It won't work that way (;

  16. The deal with RNG (if that's the correct term), you'll never know when a spider demands 2, 3, 4 or 5 rockets to fall. Same with a mancubus.

      Guardians are quite deadly because they can fly. Map15 is the best place they can ambush you.

    3. rdwpa

      rdwpa

      AA had a few jumpscare moments where you'd be moving in tight spaces and you'd turn the corner and a drone would be right there staring at you. Good stuff.

       

      The drones are less of a nuisance than revenants: they have a third the HP; they explode upon death so you can often get a few of them (or even a group) with one shot; and interestingly enough, their flying ability works to your advantage because when they are higher than you, it's hard for their projectiles to hit you if you move forward (the homing projectiles will arc into the ground). In AA specifically, the main advantages they have over revs are the terror they might instill and combat at close quarters. They are fun.

    4. galileo31dos01

      galileo31dos01

      Do they inflict splash damage to Doomguy upon exploding? It's not something I took the risk to verify. 

  18. Wow, pinkies can be a huge nuisance sometimes. Spectres, always.

      I really find Pinkies to be a pushover, unless you have no super shotgun/chainsaw/berserk.

  19. Being somewhat "anti-sociable" and playing a hard map, at 2:29 am on Saturday in my country, cursing revenants that ruin my patience. My dad is sleeping and I'll probably wake him up if I continue shouting to the screen. Nope. Not healthy. Nope nope nope. Damn insomnia. I would like to write random stuff but that may leave a bad impression of myself. If there's InstaDoom, why not Wadsapp? Bye

      Oh yeah Italo Doom, believe me I'm trying it someday, I've seen a video of the first map a couple weeks ago, not in the mood for something like that at this moment.

      Forget that map and try it another day. If you quit 3 times then you have to relax and think of more strategies, good luck for that.

      There's some days when you just can't do shit all fuck with something, and it's almost magical in how retarded it can be. But it's best to just say screw it and try again later I say.

  21. Can blockmap make you eat your own rocket? Suppose you shoot a rocket to the air, nothing is in front of you, and the rocket explodes in your face, like a bomb.

      Nine Inch Heels

      You ever noticed how plasma or rockets sometimes don't appear in the middle of the screen but rather a bit to the sides? That's when what you're shooting at is a bit out of alignment. This was implemented because doom originally also had to play decent without there being the precision of a mouse when aiming. When you're aiming at a diagonal angle (as in: not north/east/south/west), the odds of a rocket hitting something that is not in your field of view is relatively high due to doom's "thing metrics", which is further amplified by the small field of view you are playing with.

    3. Nine Inch Heels

      Nine Inch Heels

      To explain this a bit further: If you look at things in Doom top-down, as if it was 2D game, everything that moves or can be picked up has a square hitbox, all sides being equally long. But if you draw a diagonal line through the square, from one corner to the other, that line will be longer than the sides of the square.

       

      So if you shoot a rocket at a diagonal angle, the rocket is "wider", because of how this diagonal, imaginery line of its hitbox works. If you're standing next to such a corner, this makes the odds of the rocket's hitbox connecting with that corner higher. If you then add the possibility that your rocket doesn't eject from the centerline, but instead a bit to the side, you have a recipe for desaster.

  23. Have you ever seen any melee+projectile-based enemy distancing and shooting another enemy instead of close combating? 

     

    May I explain myself, and I don't have a demo or something so I hope you don't misunderstand me... I've just seen a revenant infighting a baron, ok? The baron kept approaching the revenant, like normally happens, but the revenant kept distancing instead of going to punch the baron, plus shooting rockets which eventually killed him. I'm not talking about revenant's shaky movements before getting close to his target, it was like if it was me getting away from my target to not be scratched. 

     

    It was something, unusual. 

    1. leodoom85

      leodoom85

      It can happen with imps/zombies/pinkies or your case too. It happens rarely...
