    The "stupid mod idea" thread

    "No running or strafing allowed." Mimicking the way most of us probably started playing.
  2. ^I'm pretty much a complete newbie. Is there a way for me to load that file along with a WAD?
  3. A while ago, I remember reading a suggestion from someone that there should be a "drunk" flag for the monsters, which would make them aim as if the player had picked up an invisibility sphere, to make dodging attacks a bit more difficult for people who are so used to the traditional firing patterns and instinctively know where to go. Are there any WADs/mods with this behaviour?
  4. I saw on the Chocolate Doom wiki that "the game itself is still rendered at the original 320x200 resolution used by the DOS executables." Is there a way to get around this? If not, what would be the best source port to a) emulate the original game as closely as possible, and b) look as good as Gzdoom/Zandronum?
  5. As blasphemous as it might sound, I've found that I don't enjoy most "pure" Doom mods (exception that proves the rule: I loved BTSX until about halfway through, and then I gave up on it when I found myself hopelessly lost in the maps). By contrast, I love projects like Urban Brawl, Golden Souls, the two Wool Ball projects, and Project Einherjar. I've also enjoyed re-conceptualizations like Stronghold and Skulldash. Are there any other total conversions or other such projects that I should look into?
  6. I was playing E1M1 and turned God mode on because I just wanted to walk around and I was feeling lazy. I made my way past the first door, and then I alt-tabbed away for a bit to read a thread here. When I returned to Zandronum, I was in the exit room. Does anyone know how this might have happened?
  7. I actually like E4M8 as it is, except for the damn Spiderdemon. I'd increase her health points (at least double, maybe triple), and perhaps make her immune to the BFG's invisible rays. I suck at Doom, but I still beat E3M8 on my first try in about 20 seconds. I'd prefer just about anything to the IoS. It might have been neat if you had to just survive against it for 5 minutes before the real boss showed up or something like that, but otherwise, riding a lift and shooting a wall at just the right time isn't my idea of fun.

    Your dumb Doom habits

    I obsessively hoard plasma cells, even if I know the mapset and know that there are a bunch of cell packs coming up soon (Tenements, ahem). So I usually end up fighting a bunch of advanced enemies with the SSG and wind up using up my plasma cells on zombiemen so that I can pick up the 100 cell packs.
  9. In my memory, I died on the blue carpeted area. So either a) my memory is shot, or b) I really sucked that first time out.

    The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

    It's been a while, so I might not have the details exactly right, but I remember a room with a cage in the middle of it. You had to go into the cage to pick up a key, but once you did, the cage sealed itself off and some monsters started to spawn into the room. The only way to get out was to shoot a switch outside of the cage. IIRC, you couldn't hit the switch with the shotgun (or at least it was very difficult to do so), so you had to use the pistol (I can't remember if the chaingun was available at the time). Does this ring a bell for anyone?

    Looking for a certain WAD...

    Thanks! Sorry for creating this thread; I didn't know about the other one.

    The Doom Confessional Booth

    Doom is WAY too dark for me. I used to play by typing in "idbeholdl" every 60 seconds. When I found out about sourceports, I went with Zandronum because I was easily able to find information on how to make everything brighter (r_visibility for the win!).
  14. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much!
  15. Is there a master list anywhere that tells you who the main designer was for each level?
