  1. I think this topic is muddled by different game types. FPS multi-player cannot be judged against the single-player side of games. For example, Half-life2 single-player sucks balls, but the multi-player(especially including game mods) are pretty good. And you can't measure Battlefield4 multi-player against some shooter/RPG, single-player scripted mess like Skyrim. never seen or never played: Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crysis Black Outlaws Turok Dinosaur Hunter Turok Evolution The Respawnables DESYNC Vanquish Spec Ops: The Line Legendary No More Room In Hell Good(worth playing): DOOM DOOM 2 Half-Life Heretic Hexen Quake 4 Quake Disappointing(I'm sorry I wasted my time): Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Clive Barker's Undying DmC: Devil May Cry F.E.A.R.

    Kaiser_* series demos [see first post for compat]

    Kaiser_13 (yes, Strife) in 19:15. Very difficult run on higher skill levels. I'd say skill 4 is nearly impossible. kaiser_13map02_opulent_gzdoom350_1915.zip

    Nice. I couldn't have done it better myself. No seriously, I couldn't have.

    Recently recorded Kaiser_28 for Hexen, so I thought I'd get back to some DOOM. Needed something short, so this was perfect. I'm sure Veinen already has a 19(that is half the time this is) demo recorded... I look forward to seeing that. kaiser_19_opulent_boom202_1225.zip
  5. Eighteen minutes and twelve seconds well spent!

    FPS Playback Demo Site

    I admire your zeal for demos, gentlemen. You know I do. But there isn't enough interest in FPS demos to warrant any action. Outside of DOOM, there isn't a single game that has an active replay community that counts.(excluding the RTS games, which are mostly CJK-based) Well..., to my knowledge anyway.

    FPS Playback Demo Site

    No, it doesn't. I don't wish to step on Bahdko's toes either. Her awesome site has been one of the very best internet sites for decades. I don't wish to undermine her efforts. As I say on my site, what's posted is only top quality demos... and is about 1/50th of all the FPS demos I have. Now that a lot of time has passed, there is a fair portion that isn't online anymore... but I held little magic in obtaining most of these. Someone else offered most of them online at one time or another.... There is, of course, a small percentage that were obtained by less than publicly accessible means.

    Thanks guys. And Adam, I always thought you and NC were the two most underrated players. I guess that is a bit subjective... but certainly the demos speak for themselves. Cheers.

    I had resisted posting this shameless self-promotion, but it is tangentially relevant; and perhaps someone somewhere is actually interested in the content... I decided to start this site because so many demosites have disappeared in the last 5 years. Cheers. http://opulentdemos.us/ofda/ofda.htm

    What's rare in your music collection?

    I almost had a used record store in the 80s, so I've seen some rare stuff go by. I got a lot of first pressings, radio-only release crap, bootlegs, and limited edition collections of stuff, but nothing really noteworthy or THAT rare. I got a bunch of stuff, as I would assume many of you do too, that won't ever be released digitally. Off the top of my head, some items I have that you probably couldn't just go buy somewhere(that are actual items, not foreign releases or fake singles or something equally meaningless): Adam Ant - Mice in Freefall, Persuasion, original Dirk WWS. I have more than all of his music, so that includes some rare stuff. Josh White At Midnight original version Lord Sutch Quiet Riot 1 Body Heat soundtrack(only 2000 made and hand numbered) Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? play Phil Collins In the Air Tonight limited edition single. Supposedly only London release, but I would guess that it wasn't very rare in 80/81 anywhere in England. As for stuff I want; I would like some albums to be released digitally. An example would be Ranting at the Nation by Attila the Stockbroker. and, Grazza, I'm jealous of your access to music shopping in GB and europe!
  11. Death Certificate over Lethal Injection. Heresy, says I! (And that is quite an odd assortment of musical variety. The venn diagrams of those music genres do not overlap.) 5 is not many. Staying away from listing any non-original albums. Rice/Webber - Jesus Christ Superstar (soundtrack) (1973) Phil Ochs - Rehearsals for Retirement(1968) Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway(1974) Adam Ant - Dirk Wears White Sox(1979) Renaissance - Scheherazade and other Stories(1975) Maybe, just maybe, that shows my age.... If I re-chose these tomorrow, I might swap out a couple. It is a tough balance between "Desert Island Disc" choices and personal favorites. Certainly some musicals and diverse albums(like the Beatles White Album) are attractive choices due to their varied content... of course that depends upon your musical taste.

    Quake 1 controlls stopped working

    First off, bonus points for playing the real game. Seems like everyone plays the crap mods and online source ports these days. Did you try -dinput ? It is probably Synaptic, TouchPad, PalmCheck or something similar that is controlling the touchpad input. You need to either change the settings for the touchpad controller or disable it. Windows thinks you never want to use both input devices simultaneously, because everyone just writes textfiles or watches youtube 24/7.
  13. Taskbar preview panes of open windows when you mouse-over them. I don't see the usefulness of this 'feature'. I think you can also turn off the Aero desktop, which may disable this. This is down my list of annoyances, but it is on there. I've known lots of people who have dozens(if not hundreds) of windows open at once -- and I do see the usefulness if you are one of those people. I don't, so it is nothing but an annoyance. These procedures are for Windows7, but should work with 8 or 10. If your version of Windows7 has the group policy editor(Ultimate/Professional), then you can change this there. a) run gpedit.msc in the Run dialog box and turn it off b) Navigate to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar in left pane of Local Group Policy Editor. c) Locate and double click on Turn off taskbar thumbnails in right pane of Local Group Policy editor. d) Select Enabled radion button. e) Click OK to make the change effective. (You will need to re-logon/reboot to enable the fix) If you have Windows7 Home, then: a) Click Start, type Regedit.exe and press {ENTER} b) Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced c) Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named ExtendedUIHoverTime d) Double-click ExtendedUIHoverTime and click Decimal e) This is in milliseconds so it needs a large delay number; 400000 or so is fine. f) Exit the Registry Editor. (You will need to re-logon/reboot to enable the fix)

    The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfal thread

    How anyone could possibly finish this game (without looking on the internet for help) is beyond me. A screenshot for this game should be on the wiki page for the word 'frustrating'. Shamefully, it isn't too far from Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim as far as the quality of the game is concerned. I wish they'd focus on the game first and then the frills, but that is why we're on a DOOM forum talking about Bethesda games instead of on a Bethesda gaming forum talking about DOOM.
  15. A sequel isn't really possible with a film like this. The entire movie is various forms of satire and mockery. People die numerous times, the social commentary, they intentionally show the stuntmen in the shot, the absurdity of the police state, etc... It isn't a real movie. It is like trying to make a sequel to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You have to admire Verhoeven's touch with the film though... really helped elevate this, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers to be much better than they would have been.
