  1. Who's in charge here? From the text file: Archive Maintainer : themes/X-Rated due to adult content I think the uploader should make the decisions, and if he/she's wrong I'll handle it. But the author's instructions to me should be the end result.
  2. I'm not very interested in shoving files around between games this long after their upload, especially if it's a bit obscure as to why. Date: 06/16/08 That said, who am I to argue with the uploader... Moved.
  3. Sorry, got that in the wrong place--hope it's right now. 2015/03/01 7355 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/abyspe15.txt 2015/03/01 3251784 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/abyspe15.zip 2015/03/01 7355 newstuff/abyspe15.txt 2015/03/01 3251784 newstuff/abyspe15.zip
  4. The email didn't bounce, so I do need to wait at least as long for a response as I would on a fresh upload (7 days). The text file sloppily says you can modify it so I don't have an issue on that front either, especially as the file is unacceptable other than the resource issue and only for that reason not part of the archive. Ugh.
  5. You are correct. Trapwarning now in place. setplayerproperty(0,1,PROP_TOTALLYFROZEN);should have been enough for me to at least look for that, sorry all. I gotta start/stop doing this stuff when "impaired"...
  6. Yes, I've rejected it for use of original resources and I wrote to the author explaining all that. Hopefully he'll fix it and reupload. I'd probably have caught that nowadays but that was 2012.
  7. Moved. As pointed out, nothing says what game it's for (and I probably would not have noticed Thing details like that in 1997) but it's "wrong" anyway as it's a DM wad and in the solo directory. Now in heretic/deathmatch/s-u/.
  8. In the 5 months since the statement you quoted, things have changed. The trapwarning now accompanies the txt and zip files into the tree.2014/10/06 590 levels/doom/Ports/s-u/spremake.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/28 590 levels/doom2/Ports/0-9/2spook.trapwarning.txt 2014/11/03 590 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/aluac400.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/28 590 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/avgn.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/18 590 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/butthurt.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/27 590 levels/doom2/Ports/a-c/cxv.trapwarning.txt 2014/09/09 590 levels/doom2/Ports/d-f/demonspc.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/15 590 levels/doom2/Ports/d-f/descr.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/17 590 levels/doom2/Ports/d-f/desec2.trapwarning.txt 2014/09/09 590 levels/doom2/Ports/d-f/dvilrage.trapwarning.txt 2014/11/22 590 levels/doom2/Ports/g-i/gat2hell.trapwarning.txt 2014/12/20 590 levels/doom2/Ports/j-l/kairezh.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/11 590 levels/doom2/Ports/j-l/klub.trapwarning.txt 2014/12/03 590 levels/doom2/Ports/m-o/malbr400.trapwarning.txt 2014/12/26 590 levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/sworkshp.trapwarning.txt 2014/08/02 590 levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/uacvegf.trapwarning.txt 2014/12/03 590 levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/unhchrch.trapwarning.txt 2014/10/01 590 levels/doom2/a-c/bigfoot.trapwarning.txt
  9. What would you suggest? It's in x-rated and otherwise technically would "just" be a trapwad. Quality is not a criterion for inclusion, which I've said roughly a million times, give or take. Or does "do something" mean magic of some sort to make it not appear in the Doomworld index? I suppose x-rated could be excluded, but I'm not involved in that.
  10. It and its sequel (which just was posted yesterday) have been marked as Trapwads. See my post above (search for "xyz.trapwarning.txt") about that, and/or read one of the trapwarning.txt files for details. You will see those files if you look at the Newstuff directory, for the 2 weeks they're in Newstuff. I don't know how the index here at Doomworld is created, but perhaps they could be more permanently identified as such if the trapwarning.txt file is seen. My possibly erroneous assumption is that people are looking at the Newstuff directory in an HTML or FTP session, but maybe it's just a viewing of the list here, in which case that doesn't help much. Still, I've identified them and if you don't want to look where I'm putting the warning that's your business.
  11. Interesting question. If you were just teleporting the user to the 20th slot based on some action he's taking, I'd say it's one. But assuming he can play in MAP01 before having to enter the cheat code (and I think you're asking a lot for the player to know the cheat codes and how to use them, but it's a challenge of sorts), then it's 2. So... either one's close enough. If you think the player is going to think he went through 2 levels, then make it 2. Otherwise 1. Or put down 1.5 and confuse us all. Playing it, I felt like it was 2 and the first one was silly, but that's just me and shouldn't be taken as a really negative statement.
  12. You're right--that's server stuff and doesn't document who you are for others, which is the point of the text file--talk to others with it. I was hoping for at least one of the names to include email but they're all "handles." The template UPLTEMPL.TXT in the root of the archive site looks in part like this insideTitle : (title of your masterpiece) Filename : (filename of primary file (xxx.WAD)) Release date : Author : (your name here) Email Address : I bet you can guess which one's the email address slot... There's also a utility to help build the txt files here on Doomworld at http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/?textmaker The further discussion sounds like maybe it's not really final yet. Please be sure it is before uploading.
  13. You guys need to reupload with an email address in the text file. I've rejected pl1024 twice now because of that.
  14. I think we discussed these before and I didn't get back to them. All moved to Ports (there are no alpha subtrees under Ports for Heretic so they're all in one pile). Combos is only intended for DOOMx wads so it's been moved to heretic/Ports. In hindsight I wish there had never been a Ports concept but they were rare and different at the time. If anyone really cares about running pure vanilla they're few and far between at this point but the archives are what they are and I'm not about to break thousands of links to shuffle them around. Hexen only has a couple hundred wads total anyway--don't need to split them up further and probably didn't need to separate them alphabetically anyway; it was just the way it was done.
  15. Because it was reuploaded with a starting room. Try scrolling up about 3 posts and work on your reading comprehension.
