    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    Seems that John W. Anderson, aka Dr. Sleep, vanished from the Internet and possibly from real life as well sometime around 2004. I never took note of it until recently. None of his pages have been updated since then, one of them having gone offline. CodeImp has tried to contact him IRL apparently and had no success. How about we see if we can't find out what happened to him? I have a feeling it's probably not good. In case you don't know who he was, he was a commercial game designer who has levels in The Ultimate Doom, DOOM II Master Levels, Unreal, Daikatana, and other games. He also remained involved with the Doom community up until his disappearance, writing a popular guide for using Doom Builder (which is why I assume CodeImp is looking for him). He was also known for some particularly strong political opinions which he detailed on his blog.
  2. I'd like to note that when you put your game on stores (Steam, GOG, Epic, Xbox Live, Switch store, etc), you do not give the company the source code to your game. The company gives *you* the headers and libraries for their SDK, and you modify your game to support that yourself.

    Oddball theory on the Marauder and Doomslayer

    And as long as there are multiple universes, one could even include stuff like the Doom/Wolfenstein RPG series as another of them. Though, those universes would have their own separate incarnation of the Doomguy apparently too. Not sure how that worked out :P Heck, if you like, some of those parallel universes could even be schlock like the comic, the novels, and the movie ;)

    SIGIL - New Romero megawad [released!]

    Christ another whole month??
  5. The signatures were already attempted to be presented to the President of the EU. He refused to accept them and mocked the presenters openly. That's what the EU thinks about the will of its people.

    Female Doomslayer

    Another one for Phobos, also. Dude gets no love.

    Bethesda.net issues

  9. This is mainly because the search engines are kicking our asses this time around, but hopefully it can be useful in the next couple of months and beyond: The Big Cheese Doom Eternal Monsters, Grrrr!

  10. Doom Wiki is participating in #Blackout21 tomorrow - various sites across the Internet will be unavailable or displaying popups and notices regarding the upcoming EU-wide protests this weekend.

    Early and unused DOOM 64 Level Designs

    That actually depends entirely and only on the details of the original contract between id and Williams. It's extremely unlikely that id granted any ownership of IP through the contract, IMO.

    Dissecting Doom's Inferno depiciton - Help

    And I've always said they should have added some way to trigger a special event where you could awaken a giant caco to come rising out of the ground there (complete with earthquakes), and then you'd have to fight it ;)

    Very, VERY worried about the final product.

    Hey don't shoot the messenger. It was id themselves that said it: https://www.vg247.com/2018/05/17/rage-2-no-loot-boxes-but-live-service/

    Fun fact: we originally discovered that spectral caco during a live stream by Kaiser.

    Dissecting Doom's Inferno depiciton - Help

    Regarding Dis, it could be that the tower is actually entirely behind the cliff and not sitting on top of it like you'd assume from the perspective. This might explain the route and the position of Unholy Cathedral a bit better if it were the case.

    Just saying, RAGE 2 is going to be a "live service".... make of that what you will >_>

    Doom 3; question about "save your backups" computers.

    That was old misinformation and was removed a few weeks ago actually. Either somebody made it up entirely, or it was only in some earlier version of the game, or possibly only in the Xbox version, which nobody seems to have and so we have very poor info on it. I was surprised (and a bit disappointed) that backing up all the data wasn't made into an achievement for BFG Edition.

    Imagine if Doom hit the public domain.....

    I hope the newer generations do not take the next DMCA laying down like we did back in 98. Never even knew that shit was coming down the pipe before it hit. Now it's entrenched through international treaties.

    Oddball theory on the Marauder and Doomslayer

    Not to be overly critical or anything, but the grammatical construction of that paragraph most naturally implies that a bukavac is something entirely different than the Icon of Sin. Each of those sentences is evoking a different, unrelated image - not equating all of them as one possible experience to be had, but listing a set of alternatives. According to Wikipedia:
  20. TFW you just found out there's a functioning multi-qubit quantum computer. When I did a paper on this in college back in 2001, it was still a far-fetched theoretical thing we thought we might have sometime around 2050.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    Thanks for convincing me there's no point in further discussing ANYTHING about this.

    Gotta link this one as well:

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    Dunno. It's one area they're evidently not skimping in. The composer who's working on it isn't a huge name but he has literal *tons* of work and has won an Emmy. I listened to some of his stuff on YouTube.

    DOOM: Annihilation - the new Doom movie

    That's generic trailer backing music. The sound track for the actual film is still being composed so there's no way that was the actual film OST. Very common to just use a stock track on early release material.
