  1. So, basically Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, but with Doom. Doom Academy, Doom Disks, holographic Doom monsters, and a secret basement level where the Serpent Riders are stored in suspended animation. Sounds good to me.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    Very much DOS. Reading the keyboard as scancodes. The scancodes are fixed by the position on the keyboard, IIRC, and do not have a fixed relationship to ASCII (or other codepage) characters. That table you see is for shifting in particular, IIRC. So on an AZERTY keyboard, the 'A' key sends the same scancode as the 'Q' key on a QWERTY. Correct me if I'm wrong though. Supporting various keyboard layouts certainly would've been possible, but it'd have been more work too.

    UAC boxes in Wolf3D

    If you read the story it makes sense that they were there, if you believe Wolf 3D and Doom happen in the same universe anyway as was originally intended. The demon Hitler summoned gives knowledge of the future, and of war. The UAC is the chief manufacturer of arms in the future, so using time travel or demon magic to obtain their stuff would be a no-brainer.
  4. They should change it to CEO and worker. The disparity is a billion times (literally in many cases) larger than that which historically existed between slaves and their owners in most historical settings. One class wields all the political power and the rest of us are just so much chattel. The illusion of cooperation in their evil system being optional is the only reason people don't feel a similar moral objection to the present-day economic system as they do to historical slavery. Meanwhile workers at Amazon (a trillion dollar company) have to piss in jars, and are fired at the whims of an AI.

    Playstation Doom on PS2

    The behavior of PlayStation Doom doesn't change when it's played on PS2 - it's being run on a copy of the PSOne hardware inside the console. Likewise, Doom 64 does not support the Nintendo 64 RAM expansion. It will never use it even if one is installed - doing so requires special programming in the cartridge to deliberately make use of that RAM and Doom 64 has no such coding. I own all of these and the consoles to play them on, and have cooperated in their reverse engineering.
  6. If you're to believe the current interpretation of the Article 13 law as it has now been amended, we won't be subject to it - you have to "promote" the content you have, and we do not do that. Everything's worded just vaguely enough to let case law chisel away at what freedoms this leaves alone, though. Article 11 however is a major problem. It has no such exception for "small" sites. Supposedly you've got to pay this "link tax" just for linking to a news article. This fundamentally breaks the Internet. We often use news articles as sources and references for our material - this is effectively denying the ability to quote sources, a fundamental part of documentation, recording of history, journalism, and free speech itself. The final vote is still to come. We cannot let up against this in the interim.
  7. Sad to see this derailed with arguments about unrelated issues; we need solidarity against these acts. The wiki has been running an action alert since the 6th and will continue to do so through tomorrow.

    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    We never put much stock in that; it was only based on a rumor from someone he used to work with but wasn't on good terms with any longer. Good to know the facts in the matter though, even if it's a long time after.

    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    We used to exchange some emails back in the day, around 2004. A few years after that he had to take a break from the internet for whatever reason and I went looking for him. I'd always hoped he'd show back up here eventually with some tales to tell but now we know that won't happen. I was however glad to know that he was alive and well in the intervening years after he stopped by to update his page on our wiki once, a few years ago. Thanks for getting us up to speed and condolences regarding the loss. He'll be missed by many.

    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    That did come to mind. I'll wait and see if they reply to me, thanks.

    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    Do you happen to be aware of whomever the J Anderson who registered on DoomWiki.org earlier today might be? I've asked them if they'd kindly reply to verify their identity.

    How do people lose the source code to their own game?

    In some cases, think of the stupidest possible reasons you could possibly imagine, and rest assured that those have definitely happened.

    Doom Wiki photo hunt

    Actually we were in fact missing pics of any of the Doom 3 pre-order Reapers, so this is useful.

    Mac Doom on PC?

    if you really want the original experience, you need four things: SheepShaver A firmware ROM image (BIOS, basically) for a machine capable of running something between System 7 and Mac OS 9 A copy of one of the aforementioned OSes (a CD image will do if you can properly obtain one) The Doom, Doom II, or Final Doom port(s) for Mac OS Setting up SheepShaver is way more work than running the Doom port is. Once SheepShaver is working, the Doom port will "just work" inside it. SheepShaver is a Mac emulator, by the way. I took the pics of Mac Doom that are on the wiki using it. https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Doom_(Apple_Macintosh)
