  1. That is total BS. Here's me playing Quake's DOS version (in Windows '98) on a 2003 CPU (Athlon XP 3000+). 1024x768, never drops below 60fps. https://youtu.be/vonCamEE1uk?t=1571 A few caveats that might have an effect on performance - I am using a GPU that's from 2005 and the system RAM is maxed out for '98, but still. The point is, PCs certainly could run this game at the higher resolutions it supported. It didn't happen overnight, but that's what makes PC gaming special: The future-proofing of your games and the improvements they naturally get over time as hardware capabilities increase.

    opinions on breaking bad & better call saul

    Loved Breaking Bad. It was the first show I binged from start to finish over a couple week timespan. El Camino was decent (albeit pretty slow), and Better Call Saul was surprisingly great. It's slower than BB overall, but its most intense scenes may outdo a lot of BB's craziest ones.

    What was your first console?

    Always astounded to see the amount of kids on this forum. For a messageboard about a 29 year old game, it kind of goes against what I would expect. My first console was an Atari VCS/2600.
  7. I don't watch movies I think are terrible. I'd rather spend my limited time on this planet watching movies I think are good and/or may have the potential to be good.

    When to use FTP....in 2022?

    Pretty much this. This also goes for other computing style devices, like the MiSTer.

    Happy 30th Birthday Wolf3D!

    Happy Birthday, Wolf 3D! I still play this game (and Spear) several times a year. Might even rock some of it later tonight in celebration.

    EX INFERIS - 31 Map Slaughter (ish) wad

    Spent last night going through the first seven maps on UV. The first six or so were a little too "stop and go" for my tastes (lots of switches, elevators, and waiting), along with a lot of symmetry (this can get stale). Some were also loooong for the types of maps they are (one took me 30 minutes, and I didn't even die many times!). That said, regardless whether it's for me or not at this point, this is truly high quality stuff and I do suggest others try it. Map 07 got my attention with the more Slaughterfest-style gameplay. I'll keep working my way through it to see where else the WAD goes. When it comes to enjoying WADs, I do lean much more towards slaughter stuff and less on more traditional DOOM gameplay. I could personally do without the focus on verticality at some parts. I am not a fan of using freelook in DOOM engine games as it just doesn't feel right to me. Thankfully free-looking was only needed a small handful of times. Playing traditionally with the default vertical auto-aim system worked fine in the first seven maps, for the most part.

    Spectrum: A Doom SNES Slaughtermap

    Unless there's something I'm missing, it doesn't seem much like a "slaughter" map. That said, it does look fun. I appreciate people making new content for SNES DOOM.
