    [SPLIT derailment] zdoomisms

    ZDoom (needlessly IMHO) adds and enforces a bunch of restrictions onto Heretic's "mad melee" when the player dies - for example, in ZDoom, monsters of the same species won't fight each other under this condition, whereas they did in vanilla Heretic. Vanilla's "rule" for when the player dies is that a monster will literally fight the next living thing it sees regardless of what it is.
  2. The bottom left shot on the Tricks of the DOOM Gurus reverse cover might be one of the CHOOK series of chicken-themed mods.

    This hit me a lot harder after I was reminded that he had joined our Minecraft server back in June. I built a memorial statue of his MC skin near his starter base to remember him by.

    Does anyone know the legal status of "DOOM-IT?"

    It was a shareware application back in the day; doesn't seem that ever changed as it became out of date. Unfortunate. Might be hard to get ahold of the author by now.

    The new steam update for doom 1 and 2 are bad

    It's your failure to step down from any of the objectively wrong reasonings you give for your opinions that make them a target, not the opinions themselves. Anybody can dislike something, but if you're going to sit here and expect us to nod in agreement while you rail on about "advertisements" and how DosBox is the most glorious and apparently only correct way to play Doom and all this other bullcrap, well, it isn't going to happen.

    It does commit the terrible crimes of "advertising" Bethesda in the intro (ya know, the rich-ass AAA publisher that still saw the value in updating Doom 64 when they could have just told us to fuck off like EA or Activision probably would've - seen any updated Heretic or Hexen builds lately?!?) and has the HIDEOUS addition of being able to log in one time to Bethesda.net so you can get a free (OMFG, the gall) profile icon and tagline for your Doom Eternal profile. How can people put up with this?? It's a slippery slope I tell ya! Next thing you know there will be microtransactions scanning your web browser history and slot machines with the demon keys on the reels - match 3 and win a prize, only 10 Doom Tokens per try.

    I've never seen so many people baw about a free gift in my life. JHC.
  9. In a recent interview Hugo basically said that The Ancient Gods will be the "end of the Doom Slayer's arc". What do you think this means? It could be anything from "we're just going to look at other periods of time or other characters for a while," or anything up to "we're killing one of the most beloved characters of all time off, deal with it." Is Doom without the Doomguy a future possibility? Would the fans accept that if it was tried?

    The Seraphim's Goals and Identity

    I hadn't considered that possibility, so that's an interesting idea.

    Doom version 1.1 Disk

    Back in the day we did this when our 500 MB hard drives filled up and we had to move stuff off just to get Windows to boot up again :>
  12. It's a video editing term.
  13. They did create two languages for the lyrics in the music, we know that much at least.

    SNES Doom source released under GPLv3

    Having worked with Bethesda on a commercial project, I can tell you that you definitely can't get anywhere by going at it this way and that's just a boilerplate response from customer support. In order to really get anywhere you'd need to talk to somebody at id, who could then hook you up with the right legal people at ZeniMax. Kevin Cloud is still there from way back, don't know if you ever met or talked with him, but he's a good guy. Bit hard to get a hold of externally though. As far as Sculptured Software goes, those copyrights for internal resources are definitely 100% orphaned. Not to be construed as legal advice, but I think you'd be absolutely safe to release it. The stuff that got auctioned off/bought in the Acclaim bankruptcy was all rights to particular games and not stuff like that, as far as I'm aware.
  15. Here are my scribblings on the characters and some of their possible sources.
