  1. Odd. So which version are you using here? I have the (AFAIK) the most recent, and I don't have the UDMF option (this is the Windows build, BTW)
  2. Doom in Hexen Format. Why? Because I started mapping on an Ubuntu box and the best (IMHO) editor on that platform is Eureka, and Eureka does not support UDMF. I know I could use Slade to map in UDMF on Ubuntu but that is quite fiddly to use as a level editor.

    Endless Random /idgames WAD Adventures #009

    Been a bit distracted with something else, but back with another random playthrough. it is https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom/a-c/chester, by Nic Bedford & Simon Davis - supposed to be - well - Chester: It kinda does too, map-wise. The level itself doesn't really bear any resemblance to streets though. Gameplay wise, it's a bit basic - way too much ammo/health and not enough variation in lighting etc. The exit was not obvious and I left unexpectedly, so I did not get all secrets or kills. E1M1, UV, freelook, no jump. Here is my playthrough:

    my R667 dump backup front end - beta#1

    Update #1: I ran the putative download links generated by the scrape JSON data through the W3C validator - as expected, about 1/3 failed (about 300). These did not follow the expected .zip filename of "Repository Item Name" -> "RepositoryItemName.zip". I'll update the .zip filenames to match where I can positively identify the correct ones from the metadata. There will likely be some that don't map. Update #2: Sorted the raw extracted dumpfiles into alphabetical folders Update #3: removed irrelevant text files converted .7z archives to .zip archives archived off .pk3's to .zip (I zipped the.pk3 file, not just changed the extension)
  5. Right, I have been building a front end to my backup of the recent R667 data dump. I grabbed the categorisation metadata (as JSON) via a scrape of the Repository section and built a corresponding categorised download browser from this JSON on my website: https://www.smeghammer.co.uk/test.htm It is fairly basic at the moment and - more importantly - many of the links don't work as the calculation of the .zip file name sometimes does not generate the correct value... However, the principle seems sound and I will tidy it up.

    What are you listening to?

    I know, I know... Anyway, I grew up when these guys were current and I spent many a happy drunken evening in't pub listening to them live. Prog metal before prog metal was even a thing. Really good, and SO glad they are immortalised on YT:

  11. As promised in the OP, I have been tinkering with extracting structured data from R667 to embellish the recent Items download. Made some progress, but I need to make the HTML filter for the info and credits tabs more intelligent - sometimes you get empty elements... Anyway, here is the download link for the current cut of the data. It is a big arse JSON object, keyed on the item name. It is valid JSON. https://www.smeghammer.co.uk/data/output.json (385Kb) https://raw.githubusercontent.com/smeghammer/wad_downloader/dev/output.json If you do decide to mirror the items, this might be useful too. Note, I'll be attempting to improve this.

    Endless Random /idgames WAD Adventures #009

    @ICID, thanks for taking this over, dude! I really enjoy the random adventures, and am really glad it is to continue.
  13. How the hell did I miss this? Just listening to the first one at the top - fuckin' brilliant! Sort of a mix of post-Fish Marillion and classic Triumph with a bit of Satch thrown in. Following this for sure!
  14. Added link to R667 data dump backup on my github repo: https://www.smeghammer.co.uk/links/ > https://github.com/smeghammer/r667_mirror

    Repository Dump [temp mirror added]

    I mirrored the entire R667 download on my github repo. I unzipped the download into its constituent parts so it is easier to download single items. Note - none of these are mine - credits go to respective authors of each item. It is otherwise unsorted. https://github.com/smeghammer/r667_mirror Note it is into two folders as > 1000 files in a single folder won't display.
