    How to start Eternity Engine 4.02?

    Seriously? What? All you have to do is place DOOM2.WAD in the same directory as Eternity.exe and run the exe. That's it. There is nothing else you need to do.

    MasterOFDeath (MoD), AKA Patchy, longtime member of the Doom Community and one of the OGs of ZDoom weapons mods, passed away on the 28th of September in a fatal motorcycle accident. He was only 31 years old. He leaves behind his adorable cat Petey, who misses him very much. MoD was an essential element to the birth of the ZDoom weapons modding community. If MoD's silly weapon mods weren't released, big hits like Russian Overkill wouldn't have been made in the first place. He always joked with me that he was responsible for Brutal Doom, and in a way, he was right. But I will always remember him for his nonstop creativity and genius. He is the primary reason I joined the Doom Community, and he was one of my best friends. I, along with others, will be updating the Doom Wiki with a list of his many, many contributions to the community. This post will be edited when/if I get info on anything else. There was no funeral due to Covid-19, but there is a plan for a memorial sometime in the Spring. Rest in Peace, Alex. I miss you already.

    What's with Boom's shitty OPL synth?

    That's allegro for you. As for getting around it, also, no. This is one of the reasons I don't recommend Dos Boom.
  9. For some reason, monsters do not "flinch" or show pain in the latest build. This makes a lot of maps much harder because you cannot stun anything. I can't even stun a cyberdemon with an SSG reliably in this port. :(

    OPL SNYTH in skull tag

    That's because the old OPL synth in zdoom and related ports added a "limiter" of sorts on certain voice combinations. It's not accurate, it actually changes the timbre of the voices. That's one reason why it was thrown out. And not to make the post too long, on referencing the OP: "When I was testing the OPL synth on skull tag 098c I noticed I hear more sound notes on e2m4", the reason is that the note pressure algorithm was completely different to what zdoom ports have now. The midi note algorithm in the older zdoom was better. but it wasn't GPL, so out it went. Well, given that you were never meant to hear the OPL2/OPL3 digitally, there will be no such thing as "accurate". But the MAME OPL2 emulator of that era was absolutely terrible, as was the "Java OPL" if that's even selectable in that version. The real issue is this: Notice how 2, 3, 4, and 6 are just absolute values of the sine? that also corresponds to the overall output of the chip, so you get stuff like this: When a correct implementation (presumably through the SB16 DAC) would be more like this: The first waveform output cannot be amplified "enough" in digital mixing. it will always be limited by the lopsided sines. Ports need to add a 5Hz highpass to get around this, then OP can crank it up until his speakers break.

    A thing with ZDoom that I don't understand

    A few ports had an option to add gamma correction to screenshots, and some didn't - or the players didn't know it was an option. So tons of "pro" zdaemon DM screenshots are just washed out and ugly to look at. If you had PCX files on those older ports I think you could repair the damage by replacing the palette (I could be wrong here).
  12. I hope anyone who considers plagiarising work looks at this thread and the evidence and determine for themselves if it's really worth it. If one takes things without credit and somebody finds out, that person's entire span of works is now suspect. This community is so tight-knit that I'm shocked this wasn't discovered sooner. I once thought that'd be enough of a deterrent. I guess not. I'm disappointed.

    The 2019 Cacowards

    More seasoned doomworld vets remember the flame wars with every single /newstuff review thread. We're talking pages of angry shit. Glad that's over now.

    Does every WAD series need that many sequels? NUTS was already a joke submission to test /idgames FTP server, the fact that it became a speedrunning map was just part of B.P.R.D.'s genius.
