    Which monster do you neglect when mapping?

    I should consider using a pack of zombiemen once in a while, they are fun in groups when 'zerked or having a lot of ammo for the high-slot weapons. If I don't plan on having encounters like this in a map, I tend to use a balanced mix of shotgunners and imps instead. Other than green zombie, the Arachnotron is my least used enemy because of A) size, and 2) the noise (especially in packs)

    The big fat thread of what phone do or did you have!

    Nokia 111, the un-smart edition. It can ring and send texts. Oh, an it's got fancy stuff like a calendar, calculator and alarm clock. I strongly dislike anything touch screen based. And on the bus I stick to my PORTABLE MP3 PLAYER thank you very much

    How are other people emotionally?

    I used to suck. After high school, I was a highly socially awkward guy, growing ever more depressed. Then I started, and subsequently dropped out of university. Thereafter, I became something of an isolationist and an unemployable alcoholic for almost 5 years, and my social network shrunk to a raisin. Eventually, I somehow managed to find the willpower to move to a different city and start a new life as a construction worker, which slowly but surely finally rid me of my personal issues, and I managed to get quite good at what I do, so now, after 10 more years I'm one of the most respected guys at my workplace, have overcome my social shortcomings, and have an apartment with a wife and two kids in it. I have some friends too. Hooray! The End. edit: This is a timespan of 18 years :) Last 10 pretty good :P

    What Do You Think of Wormholes?

    Love maps that does stuff like this, and I think E1M2 and E1M3 are prime examples to follow, even if they are more "many interlinked secrets" rather than "a major part of the map" - well, that computer maze is pretty big, and the hunt for the secret exit is pretty epic. Never shall I forget that rewarding feeling of standing at the imp's ledge looking over the outdoor pit first time I found the secret exit in m3.

    Anyone here as big a Duke Nukem fan as a Doom fan?

    I have only played Duke Nukem 3D, but I love it! If I were to rank my FPS favourites by time spent in them, it's probably something like this: 1. Doom 2 2. Doom 3. Duke Nukem 3D 4. Hexen II 5. Quake II 6. Shadow Warrior 7. Quake 8. Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II 9. Blood 10. Heretic And yeah, I haven't bought a new FPS in quite a long time haha Edit: The music in Duke 3D is top-top notch by the way! Only one stinker, this being E3M3. If you haven't done it already, I'd highly recommend listening to a Roland sc-55 music playthrough on YouTube... in Duke's prime, I was stuck with a SB16. What a revelation it was to hear the music the intended way years later!

    What difficulty do you play Classic Doom on?

    UV for all stock episodes, sometimes Nightmare! for the first three episodes of (U)Doom. I rarely play slaughter maps, so I never need to adjust skill level 🙂

    ^ Someone please make a sprite of this and replace the lost soul or something 😄

    Dimension of the Boomed (Release Candidate 2)

    A great wad indeed. I will admit I was a little put off by the gameplay changes from alpha to beta versions, but I'm starting to get used to it. I think those 4 levels from the alpha were perfect as they were, but it's not like they are ruined in this release or anything. Quite surprising to see "that Quake monster everyone hates" being implemented, but it works really well too. I will indeed keep following this project and look forward to seeing more levels from you (even though I haven't finished beta4 yet :) Still trying to find some time to get through that spider level from pistol start....
  9. Have some metal/rock - My current band, DOOMKOPF (no, it's just a pun on the german word "dummkopf", and not Doom-related ;)

    Worst Ending in a videogame?

    GTA 2. Straight to credits, at least in my copy from steam. Guess they blew the "ending budget" on that intro movie.

    Dimension of the Boomed (Release Candidate 2)

    I apologize for the trouble. This is the weirdest error I've ever encountered, but it may be browser-related. I tried downloading the archive 10 or so times using my default browser which would be Firefox. Each time the WAD could not be unpacked due to file corruption, but the txt file was ok, using either explorer, winrar & winzip. No other ZIPs gotten from the same site would produce the same problem. Finally I tried downloading the zip using Internet explorer instead, and suddenly it worked??? Weird!! Anyways. NOW, I'm going in!! :D

    Dimension of the Boomed (Release Candidate 2)

    Hi, I'm actually having problems extracting the ZiP. Tried with explorer and winrar, all I get is the TXT file, and it says the WAD in the archive has a corrupted checksum. I tried re-downloading the ZIP, but still no luck... may the archive be corrupted or is the problem on my end? edit: I tried another zip to make sure the problem wasn't on my end, your boomqtex zip worked just fine. It's just this beta3 that won't extract correctly here, even after re-downloading and trying to fix the archive :(

    How intelligent are various monsters?

    The Lost Souls are obviously the brightest of the bunch (always bright). The Cacodemon is probably not far behind. What's he grinning at? You don't get it, do you? So he's probably smarter than the player at least .
