    Nitemare 3D Reverse Engineer

    as someone who was a huge fan of nitemare 3d as a kid, i'm very much looking forward to this. Keep it up!
  2. This was a fantastic experience. I very much see the influences you had for making it, and I'm grateful for having experienced it blind. Great work. Loved the music, especially later on.

    What'dya Prefer? MP3s or Midis in Maps

    There are! To my knowledge, it's easiest to find examples of modules being used in a lot of early zdoom mods, like Massmouth 2, Zdoom Community Map Project, etc.. My explanation is itself a simplification as there are plenty of technical differences between the formats, but that is a general jist of it. Unreal and Unreal Tournament made fantastic use of the format. Honestly, it is my preference as far as things go - i'd love to see more levels with tracker songs. Edit: Dead.air is a great modern example of a doom map using modules. All one module made by Xaser himself, no less!

    What'dya Prefer? MP3s or Midis in Maps

    On the surface, the two formats have a lot in common - but the biggest signifying difference is, at least from a layman's perspective, tracker tracks *provide* their own samples, so they'll sound consistent throughout every device - this also means that tracker musicians are free to utilize whatever sounds they want, rather than being locked to the MIDI library of instruments. MIDI is completely dependent on what you're playing it through - playing it through Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth is not going to sound the same as a SC-55, or someone playing it through the Fluid soundfont, etc.
  6. I appreciate the praise! :) Baphomet Lingers and Shambler's Wrath, huh? Neither were ones I would've expected to be favorites, but all the same, i'm happy to hear that they are! Dark Premonitiions is mostly an album of music leftovers, so to speak - a bunch of loose songs I had done over the course of two years compiled together into an album for the sake of convenience. Only some of them are dark ambient - others are not.
  7. Hello again! After months of grueling effort, i've finally finished Slipgate - A Quake Tribute Album, just in time for Quake's 25th anniversary! I'm pretty proud of this one, 37 tracks in all, so check it out! https://bouncytem.bandcamp.com/album/slipgate-a-quake-tribute-album
  8. Hello again, everyone! Today's a pretty special day for Bandcamp - they waive all fees, so anyone who chips in to the album today sends the whole amount. My finances have been tight due to 2020 being 2020, so any aid would in fact be greatly appreciated! I've additionally added a second album full of miscellanous songs i've made over the past two years to add more variety to the mix, in case anyone's already supported Perdition. https://bouncytem.bandcamp.com/album/dark-premonitions

    Doom64 Demonic Covenant (FOR GZDOOM)---- 7 Map Demo (WIP)

    So, I really enjoyed what's here so far! I had a fun romp through the maps and scrapped maps alike. :) I also took a few minutes to make an optional add-on for this level pack, using songs from my Perdition Doom 64 tribute album as new music material for the levels, too. Thought it'd be fun to see which songs I felt fit which levels! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ouVU5c0oiKkx-BK9DdRfo2WCs2xEJEvE/view?usp=sharing I've included it here for anyone who might be interested. Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to more of this. :D I did also really enjoy your custom track for Accursed. I didn't realize it wasn't a proper track until I read your posts above!
  10. So on a random hunch I decided to take a look at Rheingold's text file to see what its permissions are and, well.... welp.
  11. by all accounts the rheingold one most likely is just a tribute or homage to wolfendoom and wasn't meant to be anything more than a cute reference, certainly not something done in bad faith or malice - but the lack of laz rojas in the credits, as far as i've been able to discern, still leaves it a wholesale ripoff that was unattributed, and, thus, plagiarized. If it were a wolf3d map originally that everyone would be familiar with, it wouldn't be such a huge deal - the e1m1 tribute in the same map I would definitely consider a homage rather than a ripoff - but because the map itself is laz rojas's original work, copying *that* wholesale with almost no edits without credit leaves a bad taste in my mouth. The sheer extent of how much of the map was copied puts it beyond simple homage territory to me, too. that's ultimately one of the main consequences of plagiarizing - it can no longer be *assumed* to simply be tribute or homage as a more skeptical lens is now on everything.
  12. That's the unfortunate consequence when someone's caught plagiarizing, unfortunately - their *entire stock of work* is now in question and people will start scrutinizing their past efforts, leading to new examples.
  13. So, while we're on the topic of plagiarizing, i'd like to add an anecdotal case from The Ultimate Torment and Torture. Specifically, the lost episode's hitler secret stealing its assets and architecture from Laz Rojas's Operation Rheingold with no credit given. It could just be a cute tribute, sure, but the lack of credit *whatsoever* is just another layer to the problem that blurs and sullies the line.
  14. For those who seem to be downplaying the plagiarism side of things, I think there's a thing you need to understand here. Just about all community works have some kind of trust and genuinity behind them. When you're *caught* plagiarizing, that trust is gone, and now, even if it was a one time mistake or weakness [and, from my knowledge and experiences, it never is just once], that changes nothing about how that trust is *gone* and everything you do is now going to be scrutinized, just as much for protecting their own backs as it is broken faith in the person to do right. The community's faith in you is broken, because it was betrayed.
  15. Man, reading this thread and watching it all unfold, i'm getting some *serious* Kenji Yamamoto flashbacks. I'm going to be inclined to agree with Bauul - this is well beyond coincidence territory.
