    Flipcide.wad RC1 - A vanilla DooM 1 map that won't run in DooM.

    Noted, thanks. That's going to be a hard no. I refuse to deal with all of that BS for what is nothing more than a one-sided expenditure of my lifespan. Well this has been a fine adventure in the land of semantics.

    "It's too cartoony"

    Were I to describe DooM Eternal's visuals in a left-handed manner, I would use the term "garish". Not that I truly think so, since the enemies in DooM have typically ranged from "brown and teeth" to "technicolor nightmare". Now, if DooM's enemies were genuinely cartoonish mockeries of the human form, the game might be legitimately terrifying on some level.

    Introduction to strategy games

    Warcraft (1 & 2) is a good entry-level RTS, if you're trying to get your feet wet without being turned off by absurdly methodical 4X games.

    "It's too cartoony"

    The vocabulary of the average person has been on the decline for quite a while. They probably don't even know a more appropriate word at this point.
  5. https://9to5google.com/2015/06/14/how-to-make-a-chrome-extensions/ I have fun changing any group the media complains about, to other kinds of people. It's rather revealing when I forget that it's just a once or two word replacement caused by my extension.
  6. You can with regular expressions, or even by making a browser extension. Only takes a few minutes, but I only know how to make a fixed change, not one where you have context menu control and the ability to make successive changes from within the browser. That said, the changes that should be made here should be those that revert the site to and earlier state, according to much of the Internet that knows how to code.

    Let us just say that the staff that was behind Windows 10 was not the staff behind say, Windows Server 2003. Like night and day, those iterations. On one hand, you can't easily play the latest games without Windows 10, but on the other hand, most recent games are complete garbage anyway, and are available on consoles. I'm sticking with Windows 7, and the only troubles I've had with it in the past ten years are it not liking my SCSI card and video capture from 1994, and AMD's latest drivers. The purpose of an operating system is to facilitate the running of software. I have no qualms with jumping straight over to Linux if Win7 becomes unusable in the future, or if my motherboard gets blown out by a power surge or something. There is no legitimate reason to use Windows 10, with its myriad failings, when you can buy an legitimate OEM key for Windows 7 for like five dollars.

    Doomworld Members' Sketchbook

    From 2003, right about when I decided that drawing was more of a chore than a hobby. Amazing, sixteen years gone by, and I still haven't put pencil to paper since.

    Ion Fury, a new Build Engine game out now.

    There are very few lost souls in the entire campaign, and none of them sneak up on you, really. Also, prefixing quoted phrases with + helps force search engines to stop taking so many liberties with your queries.

    I'm Also Looking to Play and Record Your Maps

    Care to give this abomination a look over? It's what happens when you're experienced in Quake II mapping, but then try to make a DooM map with no plan. Thanks in advance.

    Flipcide.wad RC1 - A vanilla DooM 1 map that won't run in DooM.

    Also, if anyone's curious about my first map (which was started two weeks after this one was), it's on my Oldternet website, where everything is supposed to take place in the mid-nineties. https://www.geocities.ws/oldternet/doom/wads.htm
  12. Something has gone wrong, as usual, and it's up to you to dance between the dimensions to figure it out. My second WAD, but started well before my first release (RE1M1), but definitely not suitable for vanilla DooM, despite using only vanilla assets and nothing that would be incompatible with vanilla DooM, other than the sheer number of linedefs that would make the game have a stroke. This is the result of me teaching myself how to create a map for DooM, dealing with its limitations, and working around them without using special techniques that only work with specific source ports. The map is mostly linear, with optional backtracking. Yellow doors usually expedite this, and red doors are typically your reason for backtracking. I left a visual clue near the end of the map, referring to the light side's version of that room. Also there's a hidden level within this map, which I can release as a standalone level if desired, with appropriate music. I would consider the map to be light on the difficulty, as I may have left too much armor and ammunition in the map, but it's not impossible to get slaughtered. I am by no means an expert in crafting a deep and difficult singleplayer experience. Game : DooM Episode/Level : E1 - Map 1 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : No Deathmatch 2-4 Player : No Difficulty Settings : No New Sounds : No New Graphics : No New Music : No File size : 5,986,403 bytes Release : 1.0 RC1 Release date : 20190221 Difficulty : N/A Tested in : GZDoom 3.7.2 How to play : Through the usual means. Most simply, drag and drop the WAD onto GZDoom or your preferred source port. There are no special functions in this WAD that require a specific source port or version; this WAD is just too burdensome for vanilla DooM. Jump if you like, but don't jump out of any windows. This applies to real life, as well, please.

    Things about Doom you just found out

    Explains why you can't see your feet, then. DooMguy just rotates all of spacetime around him since his helmet doesn't allow much in the way of neck movement.

    Half-Life 1 or Doom 1?

    Half Life is more nonsense as you progress through it. At least DooM's absurd map design has the excuse of "well, Hell warped everything as it was overwriting reality in the vicinity of the warpgates". The Black Mesa facility was designed by Ivo Shandor, and constructed by Chinese laborers.

    Most recent movie you saw

    John Wick, and I should not have watched it. I have grudges going back 30 years.
