    Sad news on new unreleased content

    This is very often misunderstood. Trademarks (sometimes) need to be aggressively defended, copyrighted materials like graphics (trademarked logos aside,) do not. However, that said, a bunch of people have argued that there's no reason for id to have shut Romero down, which isn't quite true. There are several valid reasons why they might have wanted to stop Romero sharing this stuff. Off the top of my head: * If id ever wants to make remastered versions of the original games, or some sort of "making of" production: Incorporating unused assets like this might be a big selling point, which having had them leaked to the community beforehand would undermine. Even if they currently have no plans to do this, they might like to keep whatever trove of unseen assets they have safe just in case it becomes a financially profitable thing to do in the future. * If Romero, with no warning, released something that painted the company in a bad light - whatever it might be, it would potentially impact the current company negatively. Having a potential ticking time bomb like that would make the PR and legal teams pretty nervous. * Lastly, just the simple fact that a former employee was leaking internal development assets without consent (it's almost certain that the data Romero released is still the property of id Software, not himself,) might be enough to piss them off. Forget how much we want to see them - that's not relevant - companies generally don't like former staff members leaking internal data. Don't get me wrong, I'm super sad about this, and I really hope that Romero and id find a way to release whatever treasures he has left in a mutually agreeable way at some point in the future, but id aren't really acting illogically or monstrously - they're a company protecting their property. Romero's assets were a gift that probably weren't really his to give, and we were lucky to get them at all.

    Share Your Sprites!

    I've had a go at improving the Pain Elemental - I've always thought it's the unloved stepchild of Doom monsters; a frankensteined mashup of various other Doom sprites with the worst animation of any monster. So I gave it a SmoothDoom-style makeover: (cyan background = original sprites, blue background = my new ones.) Walk: Attack: Pain: Death:

    What is your opinion on Id Software's RAGE?

    Yeah, it really feels like the last third of the game is just... missing. PLOT SPOILERS

    Where to find clock and clock tower bell textures?

    CGTextures has some good clock images: https://www.textures.com/search?q=clock
  6. Made a few more: Yeah, I know I'm very likely not the first person to do this, it's just really fun. Files: https://www.dropbox.com/s/juuvmkxwr1q7a31/shotgun01.ddvox?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ujiiuagjcy3vfwo/supershotgun01.ddvox?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/aqezjbj78qu628l/chaingun02.ddvox?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/btmtogs1ht1nzqw/rocketlauncher01.ddvox?dl=0
  7. This is absolutely great. I made this, just for fun: .ddvox file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aqezjbj78qu628l/chaingun02.ddvox?dl=0

    What other "Doom-like" games are out there?

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1010750/Blood_Fresh_Supply/ If you're looking for other games from the same era as Doom with similar technology and similar 90s gameplay, then I can suggest: Rise of the Triad Shadowcaster Duke Nukem 3D Dark Forces Outlaws Redneck Rampage Shadow Warrior Quarantine
  10. I'm the guy mentioned above who bought the plastic gun and recreated the BFG sprite. I've wondered about this for a while and had a good try at reconstructing the RL using photos of the toy. Is the RL based on this toy? My verdict is: Possibly? Can't 100% say for sure though. You can actually get something pretty close by collaging a couple of photos of the barrel from different angles together: I mean... it's pretty close? Bear in mind that I'm never going to find the exact same angles, camera lens and lighting arrangement to make it look 100% perfect, even if this is correct. So was this how Adrian Carmack did it? Or have I just frankensteined something unrelated into looking a bit like the RL? It's really hard to say for sure.
  11. I'm sure it's not part of ol' painless. Yeah it could be anything, but the community's been amazing at tracking down nearly everything else over the years, just wondered if anyone's ever made any headway on this one.
  12. Nah, those are made from scans of the Spider Mastermind's torso section: Has anyone ever identified what this photo is actually of? Romero described it as "Toy scan for chaingun, 1993" but it looks nothing like the big plastic minigun the chaingun is based on.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Here they are: (not really worth making a new post in the textures/sprites threads) The red lightning is a modified and recoloured mashup of the Arc of Death from Hexen.

    What is your favorite monster & gun?

    Surely nothing can beat the simple, perfect joy of killing a Demon at point blank range with a single super shotgun blast.

    The 2020 Cacowards

    I've only just realised, thanks to the Cacowards, that Anteresian Reliquary uses my BFG photo sprites for some of its weapon replacements. I'm delighted - and also it definitely means that I won 0.05% of a Cacoward this year. That's just maths.
