  1. Since Helion can run Eviternity II (as well as Crusader), would you consider it DSDHacked-compatible (which is what Eviternity II and Crusader are, besides MBF21)? The article only list DEHEXTRA support, which limits the number of custom things, states, sounds, and sprites.

    James McCaffrey Dead at 65

    "Everything was subjective. There were only personal apocalypses. Nothing is a cliché when it's happening to you." That line has always stayed with me and the deadpan way in which it was delivered by McCaffrey. R.I.P.
  3. @Dragonfly I would like to request once more that the decohack source is included in a future release or made available as a separate download. I ask this specifically for the wiki article (to cover all the custom content) but also in general for reference and analysis. Keep in mind that with DECOHack-generated patches we cannot simply export the DeHackEd patch from the WAD and load it in WhackEd. While it can all be done the hard way by working through the DeHackEd patch itself, the only sane way to make sense of the inner workings of a wad as complex as this one is by looking at the source file itself.

    dsda-doom v0.27.5 [2023-12-03]

    Yeah, but that only works when you're not playing in native resolution, doesn't it?

    Is using SAVES in Doom bad?

    To be fair though: these are tips for absolute beginners playing Doom 1. That has little meaning for modern custom mapsets and how they should or should not be played.

    Is using SAVES in Doom bad?

    Nothing wrong with regular saving but excessive use aka "savescumming" can keep you from getting better at Doom, so that's something to be aware of. Apart from that, there's of course always the whole "git gud" argument, which challenges you to abstain from any form of cheating (which includes savescumming) and, to quote John Carmack, "embrace the grind", but that is also often used more as a flex than an actual philosophy, since in order to truly get gud you will have to practice efficiently, which will require saving.

    dsda-doom v0.27.5 [2023-12-03]

    Well, turns out the mouse cursor issue could actually be fixed by setting Exclusive Fullscreen to "no" but Fullscreen Mode to "yes". I already figured that out for the previous release (0.27.0) but had forgotten about it when I tried out 0.27.5 for first time yesterday. Thanks for the help! But the alt-tabbing problem and the issue with cmd refusing to take focus upon start-up has nothing to do with this. Fortunately I'm not much into recording demos because this problem means that the start of the first demo attempt is always messed up, since I have to first press a mouse button before anything functions. I guess I can live with that but the alt-tabbing specifically is a major downgrade over 0.24.3 for me.

    dsda-doom v0.27.5 [2023-12-03]

    So a while back I ask about this issue I keep having with every new version of DSDA since 0.25 where I can't minimize the game window by alt-tabbing and my mouse isn't captured properly - I have to press a mouse key before any keyboard inputs are read when starting the game from the command line (doesn't happen when using a batch file), and for the newest version, the mouse cursor remains visible when inside the menu independent of which method of loading I use (batch file or command line). Both of this issues are kinda deal-breakers for me and as a result I'm still stuck with using 0.24.3, the last version that just worked as expected. Now with Eviternity II out, I would really like to upgrade to the newest version, which is why I ask again if anything can be done about these issues.

    Would you?

    Indeed. That's basically what I said, "Make people want to give you money rather than charging them before they are emotionally invested."

    Would you?

    I mean it more in the sense that even people that spend hundreds of dollars every year on their favorite streamer for reading their donations wouldn't pay the same streamer 100 bucks for an online call that lasts 15 mins. Or at least they would be far more hesitant about it.
  12. Gregor

    Would you?

    It's funny how nobody in their right mind would pay 100 bucks up front for a 15min phone call and yet you see plenty of people that drop 100 dollars in donations on their favorite streamer for no more than 15 seconds of attention. I don't think it's the monetary value that's the problem here but the fact that it's a price rather than something you gift freely. It's the same principal that free-to-play games utilize to make money. Make people want to give you money rather than charging them before they are emotionally invested.
  13. Use VirtualMIDISynth. Add the soundfont(s) you want to use in there and press apply. Then start Sekaiju and open "MIDI Device and Instrument" under "Setup", and choose VirtualMIDIsynth under "MIDI Out Device". Press Apply, and bingo.

    2023 Cacowards

    Fair enough. I just wanted to voice my opinion on the matter. I said my piece. Topic closed.

    2023 Cacowards

    I disagree with politics being used to discriminate against any work or artist, no matter the intention behind the decision. But as Scuba Steve pointed out, Doomworld is not a democracy; so his decision on the matter has to be respected. In my opinion though this only serves to lessen the validity of the Cacowards as a whole. I look at this yearly ceremony as a unifying celebration of the boundless creativity and passion across the entire Doom community - not just the parts that share our ideological beliefs. Once you start to go down the path of deciding whether or not a work is worth honoring for reasons other than quality, you quickly find yourself in the quagmire of propaganda, where ideological affiliation is as important as artistic quality. If you decided to exclude the song "Imagine" by John Lennon from all lists of the greatest songs of the 20th century because Lennon regularly hit his first wife (which he did admit to in an interview a few days before his death) and you're of the opinion that a wife-beater's music shouldn't be celebrated, then it simply renders your list incorrect and incomplete, because "Imagine" is objectively one of the greatest songs of the 20th century, independent of what you think of John Lennon's opinions or actions. Art has the ability to bring people together; while politics tend to divide. One has to choose, which one is more important when judging art. Therefore, I believe it was wrong to exclude Zeppelin Armada from this year's list of winners, even though I do understand the reasoning behind the decision.
