    TNT 2: Devilution (Second beta released)

    Once? You heard a song looped 30 times in a previous map and then you're going to hear it another 30 times.

    TNT 2: Devilution (Second beta released)

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9nX-nszGzKvSUlOVWZBNWJHUm8/view?usp=sharing&resourcekey=0-EZpXYvELYtE_9aHAXMD90g Slightly edited "Till Next Time.mid" slightly because the buildup is too slow for a text screen. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sT97ue5k6QWZGF4wv9ale4bOJKLKcv3p/view?usp=sharing I combined the songs "TriNiTy" and "TreNT didn't survive" because it seemed like an acceptable alternative to using the first song on a shorter map. Devilution has no short maps and that's probably not a good thing. Also probably not a good thing: reusing MIDIs for multiple levels. I'm aware it was a deliberate decision but I feel like no one playing or reviewing this megaWAD will say, "That was an interesting creative decision to use this song in two different maps." More likely they'll say, "Why does a megaWAD that took 15 years to make not have a full soundtrack?" Given the large amount of expansive wandering maps, the last thing Devilution needs is less variety.

    Steam Summer Sale 2023

    I figure I might get the Steam Deck killer app: "Elf Wives Cheat to Beat My Meat"... But I just bought Doom 64 and Carrion from GOG so my wallet needs to rest a bit.

    "New year, new URE" - URE:E2 - E2M2 up!

    Oh well. I didn't expect the song to sound any good in OPL FM but maybe I can offset that with some more incidental notes. It's strictly a General MIDI song.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nRD-VLyPSrzVGR8x2k61pGhp--C_DulW/view?usp=sharing clamor.mid An ambient/experimental MIDI. I'm not sure if the effects I'm using work in other synths so it most likely will need some edits.

    the official steam deck thread i guess

    A few things to note: (1) DOSbox doesn't play well with the Steam Deck, for reasons that aren't clear yet. (2) SteamOS uses a read-only ext4 filesystem that makes it prohibitively difficult to use apps that access files. The workaround is to format a Micro SD in desktop mode (which will be invisible to Steam in game mode, but not to apps you run in game mode). (3) The controls only work properly while Steam is running. Even then, it's not designed to work like a conventional gamepad. This was my main gripe with the Steam Controller in the first place, by the way. Navigating the menus of Doom ports requires a lot more setup, i.e. wiring up the Deck as a full desktop.
  9. On average, I typically only give a shit about one gaming-related release per year and in 2021, the Steam Deck is it. I admittedly don't have a lot of experience with SteamOS (and nobody really knows what 3.0 will be like). Valva have said "it's basically a PC" so running Linux- or Windows-native source ports in desktop mode will be possible. There's DOSBox as well. Non-Steam games can be added but I've never actually done that. I've used RetroArch to play Doom with mixed results. Finally, we have the Vanilla versions sold by Bethesda themselves, complete with Bethesda.net login that all us fans were clamoring for. Has anyone here actually played Doom on SteamOS?

    Do you know some obscure 1990's PC games?

    Anyone remember a Win98 freeware game that was a multiplayer sidescrolling LMS shooter? The premise was that you were in Hell and had to fight to the death for Satan's amusement. (I know - so edgy.) The draw of the game was the number of characters in the map and the exaggerated violence.

    "New year, new URE" - URE:E2 - E2M2 up!

    I don't know, I always played my own music. But that does inspire me to brainstorm a "24/7 Doomworld MIDI" channel on YouTube. I would have to figure out a way to make the MIDIs loop at least once instead of stop abruptly (pet peeve) and put together a nice custom Soundfont (preferably one where you can HEAR THE GOD DAMNED KICK DRUM).

    "New year, new URE" - URE:E2 - E2M2 up!

    I had some luck streaming MIDI composition back in 2020. If you stream it, they will come.
  13. IGPUs have come a long way. You can expect PS4-like performance, at least.
  14. Switching to an SSD won't be "marginally better," it'll be DRAMATICALLY better. SSDs have been the most significant jump in PC performance since multi-threaded CPUs. Almost any i7, no matter how old, can still provide acceptable performance OR bring in good money if you sell it. GPU prices are finally coming down so pretty soon you'll be able to get an RTX3060 or RX6600XT for a good value.

    Weirdest Glitch You Ever Seen In A Game?

    I think the first time a game glitch scared the piss out of me was the "moving mannequins" bug in Skyrim. I'd just fully kitted out a home in Riften and went into the basement to do some crafting... turned around and a mannequin was right over my shoulder.

    TNT 2: Devilution (Second beta released)

    Do you know what was wrong with MAP01's MIDI that made Vanilla crash? I did a quick run-through listening to the music and there are still a few duplicates. We're also running into the same old MIDI controller problem (I can link you to a long explanation but tl;dr some of the pitch bends sound absolutely nuts). I'd like permission to edit D_DM2INT so I can insert controller resets. It won't change the music at all; as far as I can tell that track doesn't use any pitch bending. At the same time I'm going to un-edit "Till Next Time" because it doesn't make a very good text screen track as it is.

    FAVOURITE WINDOWS OS VERSION?

    Microsoft has made it more inconvenient to turn off all the data collection nonsense but you can still turn most of it off. At the end of the day, I spend about the same amount of time tweaking a fresh install as I always did.

    FAVOURITE WINDOWS OS VERSION?

    Windows 2000 was one of the better OSs I've ever used. WinXP was 2000 with small security features that weren't worth the ridiculous bloat and eye candy. Win98SE is great for DOS gaming. There's nothing I did on Win7 that doesn't also work with Win10 (although I do have a machine dedicated to 32-bit for the older apps I use).

    Bethesda.net Migrate to Steam

    If it means there won't be any background service phoning home every time I want to play an offline single-player game, I can now consider buying Quake Remastered and Doom64.

    People like to spend time and energy making sure everyone knows how little they care. They will argue with other people who don't care over who is more above it all.

    Sure - I suppose you COULD define countless rich and cultured societies wiped from history by Caucasian imperialism as "failures", if you wanted to be a smug ethnocentrist.

    I wanted to verify Musk's dedication to the PRINCIPLE of free speech... and five minutes of Googling produced a few articles about Tesla suing influencers and car owners for poor reviews of their cars. Oh well.

    Ha ha, how silly is that? Communism used to be everywhere. History is rife with stateless collectives with no currency or ownership of capital. On the other hand - if some despot comes along to confiscate all means of production for the state by military force and he says, "I'm doing a communism," and you're too stupid to realize that fascists lie to get what they want, well... that's your own fault.

    the official steam deck thread i guess

    Edited the topic because i have my Steam Deck and i don't see any other threads from Deck owners. Yeah, there's probably like 3 of us here. I guess this thread is also a bit about Linux gaming since SteamOS is hardly a plug-and-play experience, even with supposedly 100% verified games... not that i ever expected it to be, but my already-limited Linux gaming experience is mostly through Android or branches of Debian. I've never actually tinkered with WINE, never re-compiled for a specific distro, never worked with Flatpaks or Arch in general for that matter. Anyone do any gaming at all on Arch besides Doom? EDIT: I went directly to this thread to edit it without realizing I originally posted it in "Source Ports". If a mod could move this to EE I'd appreciate it.

    Maybe you're not from the USA but our Constitution outlines freedom of speech as the government not being allowed to arrest you for what you say (although of course that's been modified a bit to exclude things like blood libel and shouting "FIRE" in a crowded theater). You do not have a right to a platform.
