    Favorite Source Port?

    Possibly because those maps are....wait for it... made for other ports? Eternity sticking to its scope is a good thing. Supporting other source ports' maps makes sense only if those maps are part of that port's history. Why would I expect Eternity to play ZDoom maps? ZDoom exists to play ZDoom maps. I wouldn't use ZDoom or GZDoom to play Eternity maps, that's absurd! GZDoom running Legacy maps is understandable though, because Legacy at the time was not maintained and didn't work properly with modern systems, leaving a handful of maps and TCs in an unplayable state. It made more sense to tailor another source port to run Legacy maps than it was to fix Legacy to run on modern systems. Legacy also required 512 MB RAM to run something that had 1/12 the complexity of something like Action Doom. Now, should I expect Eternity to play Legacy maps too? I'll be honest with you, hardware renderers in ports these days make Doom look worse than GL Quake. Then again, GL Quake had lightmaps! Okay, okay, that's a little harsh. Strife VE has lightmaps (no really it does) so I'm shocked that a certain source port that shall not be named hasn't ripped the code yet!
  2. "Female Protagonist in the new Doom movie?" - the greatest thread in the history of doomworld forums, locked by a moderator after 12,239 pages of heated debate,

      Ex Oblivione

      The producers are probably monitoring the thread now laughing it up.

  3. Jeez your profile page avi and header 👀

  4. Remember the max amount of notes you can get away with is 9 without note cuts if you're using something like DMXOPL - I was working on a strictly 2-op version but it didn't work out well...

    What's your Opinion on Linux?

    My major gripe with Linux on a desktop machine has always been drivers. And I understand why this is the case, but it's still a fact that driver support was awful for many, many years. It didn't help that a lot of drivers in the 90's on Windows used software just as much as hardware to work properly.

    [Indie] Selling Games made in the doom engine?

    As the lines blur more and more, I would consider Action Doom 2 in this boat. You can get on Steam with $100 and not much else, and that officially makes Valve the Publisher. With no ESRB Rating.

    DMXOPL v2.10 - Happy Holidays (Nov 27)

    DMXOPL is now in GZDoom! Hooray! Use LIBADL as your midi player, and in the options, select bank 72 , or "WOPL (DMXOPL BY SNEAKERNETS)". Be sure to set the chip count up to 6 or 7, or 10 if you have a good computer.

    Jim Flynn

    Jim was one of the most creative mappers I remember from that era. Who else would try to make minesweeper in Doom? Truly a legend. No telling what maps we could have seen from him after Boom.

    Eternity Engine 4.00.00 Völuspá

    I'm glad it's out. Now to make it work on everything.
  10. I always assumed there was no way Doom (or a port based on the linux source) could be on anything but 32-bit or higher, yet, here we are: The 65816 should sound familiar - the CPU inside the SNES, which also had a Doom port. But this is an actual Doom port with real Doom source code. On a 16-bit CPU. I had no idea of this thing's existence until fairly recently, during a discussion I had on Discord about "What is there left to port Doom to", so --- How does this work? Black magic in the form of a recompiler: The game runs at a virtually unplayable single-digit frame rate, though, and I can't find the source code anywhere. I may be looking in the wrong places. The idea of Doom ported to crazy CPUs like this amuses me for some geeky reason. Yeah, you can port Doom to any ARM CPU, big whoop - but the real impressive feat is if a port could actually be "somewhat playable" on a CPU that has no damn business running Doom in the first place. 😉
  11. I've been sitting on a BTSX Episode 1 review for months now, real life happened. I better go finish that now.

      Finish it. Looks like that review is harder than the mapset....

      There's a lot to say about it. And the events surrounding it.

    Brutal Doom wins mod of the year on Mod DB

    Making a public statement about it and not punishing those who don't know or care about this would have been a professional method of dealing with this. Because with this move, I can't trust your mods anymore. If you can be this petty, what else are you doing we don't know about yet? Don't tell me that I can just "look" because a lot of people who play your mod aren't exactly seasoned veterans to the doom scene, and haven't an idea in the slightest how a PK3 or WAD works. It's one thing when it's a weapons mod loaded on a weapons mod. but a map set?

    Kate Fox has passed away

    They lived in two buildings - she was in the one that burned down, while Bouncy and his mom lived in the other. They were still in the middle of cleaning up to get her moved in proper, though we don't know if that would've worked as she had a cat allergy and, well, they have cats. Nothing sinister here.

    Kate Fox has passed away

    💔 I've cried my eyes out all night. She was such a loving person, and she didn't deserve this. If it weren't for her,I wouldn't be here right now. I love you, Kate. ♥️
  15. Kate,I love you.

      I don't really know anybody in the DOOM community after a long time of hiatus, but I feel sorry for her passing.

    3. bzzrak


      Ohh... I think I've seen her post a few times. Aw man, such a shame, seems like an awesome girl with a good sense of humour. How did she die?


    4. Rachael


      She died in a house fire. She had just moved from NC to MI to basically I guess you can say a new family, away from her old one that apparently neglected her. Anyway, she was apparently sleeping and the fire started. Lots of folks paying their respects in this ZDF topic: https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=58800
