    Doom Eternal won't have Snapmap

    Yeah, it's crazy that the DLC content from the last 2 packs still isn't usable in it.
  2. Everything that was awesome on the wiki in September: Doom Pre-Release Material Machine gun - The fully automatic rifle weapon detailed in the Doom Bible and found in v0.3 through v0.5. ‎Probjectile - Tom Hall's idea for providing real-time enemy stats by firing a probe at enemies. Spray rifle - An idea for a stronger sort of shotgun, before the SSG existed. Books Final Doom: Unauthorized Secrets Doom Eternal ‎Grenade launcher Mods Redemption of the Slain ‎DemWAD01 Person Articles We now have the ability to autogenerate mapper articles thanks to Xymph.

    Doom Wiki Month in Review (Issue #6)

    The alternate should be a redirect though, if it's not already.

    Doom 64 Spawned Fear recreated in SnapMap

    Re-created MAP01: Staging Area ID: FCVR2L4E Pics: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538988093 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538988437 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538988550 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538987997 The Hectic secret exit is included, so, try to find it ;)
  5. I did a re-creation of Doom 64's MAP18: Spawned Fear in SnapMap. It's not slavish, but rather aims to have engaging battles in some areas with roughly the same enemy types hanging around. SnapMap ID: R2C7UBUZ Some pics: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198041119689/screenshot/938330377450780688 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1536784898 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1536784974 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1536785015

    How many level designers worked on Doom 3 and Quake 4?

    Somebody is clearly trolling with that. It's pretty popular to make fun of the dude because of some of his uptight attitudes and propensity for taking credit for things like inventing deathmatch levels or "designing Quake" (w/o qualification).

    What do you think DoomGuy couldn't win against?

    This is going to end up with a sequel where they become allies and Doomguy rides around on top of Godzilla firing a rail gun at stuff, right?
  8. Quasar

    What do you think DoomGuy couldn't win against?

    Hell. I mean, let's face it, he's spent eons apparently battling it, felling demons the size of skyscrapers, making entire species of them apparently go extinct, driving them back repeatedly, but they always rebound somehow. Absorb new worlds thanks to outsiders opening gates for them, retreat into the darkest pits, or trap the Doom Slayer for an age. So, let's say he's finally "successful" someday and has killed every demon that can be killed. What of the Lord of Hell himself? Does he even have a physical form that can be attacked? In Doom 2016 he's just a voice in the sky, and even after apparently merging with Olivia Pierce, Hell wasn't destroyed or apparently even set back that much at all from the defeat of the Spider Mastermind, given what's happened at the start of Doom Eternal. But for the sake of argument let's say the Lord of Hell takes on physical form to battle the Slayer one-on-one finally. When he wins, with the way things work in Hell, Doom Slayer is now the Lord of Hell... so what does he do now? Sit on his throne of eternal torment listening to the wailing of damned souls forever? Not sure I define that as victory in the end.

    (Indirect) Doomslayer Face Reveal?

    I noticed this too and everybody said I was crazy. Shruggo.

    Is TNT and Plutonia canon?

    Doom 3 has its place too. The dimension hopping madman known as the Doom Slayer ripped and tore his way through the enemies of the ancient Martians and then stayed in Hell once again; they must have assumed he was lost and so made an honorary coffin for him back on Mars. The carvings of Doomguy with the Soul Cube in Doom 2016 say otherwise though :P
  11. So, did anybody around here actually manage to get their paws on one of these? I kept checking the Bethesda site for the last two years and all it would ever say was "PRE-ORDER" and yet not offer anywhere you could actually order the item from. Not long after they were first supposed to have become available, I found that they were being offered all over eBay at as much as twice the MSRP by a bunch of Taiwanese 0-star accounts with no prior sales, so, I assume Bethesda just let them all get sniped up by implementing absolutely no order limits or other mechanisms for making sure their loyal fans could actually get a fair shot at the item. They more recently became available on another toy site, sans the "exclusive" chainsaw but for nearly the same price, but same deal there - only as a "pre-order" item which stated your order could be canceled if you weren't fast enough. I didn't bite and now those are all gone as well, in less than a month from the supposed "go live". The whole thing is really a big scam to me. Why don't they just cut out the middle men and send their whole stock straight to the Taiwanese scalpers if they're only really interested in selling stuff to them anyways? If anybody has one, I'd love to have some pics for the wiki, naturally. And on the off chance you somehow have extras to sell, I might be interested ;) I had planned to pose him next to my revenant statue with chainsaw in hand, but not much chance of that now.
  12. BTW did you know that Dracula in Castlevania 64 uses both a longer version of the Spiderdemon's death sound, and a version of the sound used by the Heretic Sabreclaw?
  13. Note that's around when both 32X and Jag Doom were being worked on, and that in both, the entire IWAD is mapped to memory as part of the ROM, and therefore is subject to those systems' rather stringent data alignment requirements. I get the distinct feeling that it is in fact related.

    6th scale Doom Marine action figure

    Bump to note I did finally get my hands on one of these. Amazon mysteriously came up with a few units straight from the source, at the normal MSRP. You can see it detailed here: https://doomwiki.org/wiki/ThreeA_one-sixth-scale_Doom_marine
  15. 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.

    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.

    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.
  19. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
