    What? That an attempt at a comeback, or just a display of your intellect? Your conn gives you a means, a possibility, and no right whatsoever smart guy.

    wip hi res baron sprite

    Well I was atleast being supportive and appreciative, instead of slagging someone's honest effort off as "just bad". Btw, what the fuck gives you the right to speak so high and mighty about other people, who you know nothing about? Who are you again?

    wip hi res baron sprite

    - the part where the horns grow out of the skull looks weird - the face: the nose seems too long and the mouth seems to wide, giving him a totally different facial expresssion than the original. If you keep the width of the mouth, maybe make the corner teeth a bit angled to maintain the original, slightly evil expression. Also, the eyebrows in your sprite have a different angle, and the eye sockets could be worked on further, possibly making them darker, too (again for teh evil look). - the transition body/pants looks like he's wearing some meatshirt (or are those love handles?) - the bending at the knees is a bit too strong. One thing I've always found cool about id's sprite is that the structure of the muscles is visible through the pants, making the monster appear even more powerful. Keep up the good work though.

    Hell Revealed`ish WADs?

    wtf? Anyway, since I'm a masochist fan of this style as well, I keep a list with all those HR-ish wads. Here it goes (use the search function at idgames).

    - in your mouse driver ui, you could reassign those buttons to keystrokes and bind those keys to the desired actions ingame - AutoHotKey is a program to do the same, but with many additional features (macros, mousewheel binds etc.). It's free and works great. How much to make prboom+ look like this?

    What is your most hated demon in Doom?

    That might explain the origin of Gyros: some greek got pissed with all the crowing and kicked those rooster's asses. Atleast it's a theory.

    Plutonia 2 - How good do you think it is?

    I'm up to map 15 now (yes already), and while it's a good blast, i'm not overly enthusiastic. Some of the early maps are cramped, and there are quite a few crude parts. Some maps have also too luck based final battles for my taste (or maybe I just suck that hard); the archvile map 11 for example: slogging through the confusing layout, it's quite an achievement in itself to arrive at the exit and then bam! like 10 or so archviles spawning in... Or map 15: imo it would have been sufficient to reach the secret exit with the blast from a single archvile, anything else is pure luck. EDIT: just watched the uv max demo, it IS possible with just one archvile jump. Weird, I couldn't do it no matter what. The classic hard wads like hr/av were milder on the player's sanity in that the real hard parts were mostly near start, the rest was keeping up the pace. Anyway, I voted "good" and look forward to play the rest.

    Why expect perfection?

    ? There are lots of perfect wads, as there is alot of perfect art. Depends on your definition of perfection ofcourse.

    I like the fog actually, but perhaps make it a little darker to be easier on the eyes.

    Obama's Peace Prize

    Well the old farts in the Nobel comittee obviously wanted some publicity, the real life(tm) equivalent of attention whoring. Besides, look up who's won the peace nobel prize so far, and you'll have no questions anymore. Lots of promises n toothpaste grins while he's -charismatically- turning his useless skull from teleprompter to teleprompter. His choice might also show what kind of desperate state the world is in; alot of people just 'want' him to make a 'change'. Though I fear the only change he will accomplish is that the filth in Washington will grow even thicker than it was under Gee Dubya (if that's possible).

    College Youth: Obama not-so-good, but GREAT?!

    - ah ok this was a "New Harvard Poll", so the results are obviously representative. To be hip and popular, I better adjust my opinions. Wouldn't want people to point fingers at me. - a test balloon ("let's see the reactions of the general public") - just flat propaganda, humming to the background noise of the standard lies of the system whores media ("see even our youth has still faith in Obimbo")

    Why I'm not doing /newstuff/ reviews anymore

    ahaha watch those ZDoom releases; those guys have obviously very special feelings for each other. Anyway this is a serious topic, and no matter how one 'handles' this, some positivity and goodwill is always lost :(. Personally I blame the new internet generation of tards for this: no manners, no selfesteem, ego driven vicious brats.. Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. This spring, after a long pause, I started playing online fps again(quake live), and I had thought the original q3 community could NOT be topped regarding selfishness and stupidity. Easily...

    VLC player also plays nearly everything without the need to install any codecs. Very good and stable program.

    Report : 237 millionares in Congress

    In theory perhaps, but, as can be easily researched by looking at the so called democracies today, the wealthy/aristocratic elites will always find ways to sell the masses their dictatorship as "ruling of the people." Those "mechanisms" you mention will be, and are easily corrupted, under disguise.

    What is your most hated demon in Doom?

    Doom is quite a random game anyway with the wide damage ranges possible. I was just trying to say an archie without cover 'might' be ok if the unfairness of such an encounter is balanced with sufficient health/weapons. There's always the element of surprise and panic when archies suddenly appear out of nowhere, making the outcome not as certain. Ofcourse it's a different matter when your name is "Total Detonator Marine" huh?

    What is your most hated demon in Doom?

    I wouldn't say so, because as Maes pointed out the player still has a chance of a canceled attack, and it increases the player's adrenaline level quite rapidly :) Ofcourse it's only fair to pull things like that on a supposedly healthy/armed player. Archviles are a love/hate monster for me: they really add much to the game, but due to their mostly sudden appearance they probably kill me half the time on first playthroughs. P.S. teleporting archies after all monsters are dead is much harder than a single archie with no cover imo.(gladiatr.wad or holyhell.wad last map - impossible?)

    Stuck in Daikatana...

    Just this: the first level, Marsh, has 8 secrets. 7 of them are easy to find, the 8th is a completely unmarked door in the ground. I'm sure we all love humping walls for hours, it's an exciting and fun method to hunt for secrets, but the damn floor??! I won't mention the mechanical frogs and dragonflies uttering the most unnerving noises I've ever heard in a video game as well as the useless weapons that make totally lame and wimpy sounds. Stopped right there in the first level, so I didn't get to enjoy the company of Superfly Johnson, because I can take the piss out of myself far better than some moronic video game developers, that's for sure. It's crazy to think how much good money and resources get wasted by this industry year for year, producing shiny sugar coated shit, where the marketing campaign dreamed up by some coked up suits is more important than to deliver a solid product. Recent example: Painkiller Resurrection.

    Strife hi-res in GZDoom

    There are some hires textures and models at the Vavoom download page. Is it possible to get them working in GZdoom somehow?
  23. gravitar

    Just not fair..

    Lots of Quake 2 user levels. "Well the blaster has unlimited ammo, so why would the player need anything else ? For fun ? Nah let's give 'em teh hartkoar challange!!1"

    That sounds indeed much better, and the music slider works again. Yes it works, though I probably stay with Mike's suggestion anyway. Thanks to both of you.

    Strife hi-res in GZDoom

    @Graf: pretty please ? The medikit models look quite nice in Vavoom, sadly it doesn't run quite as well as GZDoom for me. I have looked up the GZDoom wiki about modeldef etc, but it seems too complicated. @Kurikai: I do use the dhtp, thanks.
