  1. Hello all, this is Jake, the owner and operator of OldDoom.com. If this is in the wrong forum, sorry, go ahead and flame your lil hearts out. As with many people of late, I have been in financial dire straits. With things like rent payments and food to worry about without the "luxury" of any kind of steady income, keeping my web site afloat has become a relatively low priority. I simply can't spare the $13 it will take to keep it online for one more month. Clearly I've been done updating the site for a long time. The majority of it was created years and years ago, when I was 13, and to me it essentially serves as a relic of a bygone era of my life. But if you find OldDoom.com in any way informative, entertaining, or useful, and would like to avoid seeing its domain bought up and turned into a fake airfare search engine or something, please donate what you can using the "Donate" button on my home page. If I cannot collect $13 by the first couple days of April the site will shut down. Thanks, Jake OldDoom.com

    Urgent appeal to keep OldDoom.com running

    Thank you!! I have enough now to keep the site up for 2 more months, at which point I'll hopefully have the means to make my own money without e-spanging. Thanks so much!

    rectangle-drag selecting

    how do you draw a selection rectangle (in 2d mode)?

    rectangle-drag selecting

    i should have added: to highlight linedefs inside a sector.
  5. changing the brightness and gamma in config does nothing to brighten 3d mode. also i can't see things in it. i've got a radeon 9600se, directx 9.0c, and windows xp home sp1a. thanks in advance.

    can't change brightness or see things in 3d mode

    fullscreen mode solved the problem. thanks for your replies.

    :D thanks! i just stumbled onto doombuilder, and this deepsea veteran about had a heart attack. hope i can figure out the brightness thing...
  8. does anyone play the original doom executables? i'm just curious. i recently got nostalgic and set up a dual-boot, winxp and win98, just so i could play portless doom :P

    ssg sound pitch lowering

    i'm using windoom and the ssg reloading sounds' pitches are cut in half. i made a wad that replaces the ssg reloading sounds with ones with the pitch doubled, and the sounds play normally in the game, except they're lower quality. i used to use windoom a long time ago and i don't remember this. i know very little c++, but i did look at the source code and i couldn't find anything. does anyone know what the problem is? thanks.

    Maddox Is Writing a Book!

    i love the 11 worst songs article.

    ssg sound pitch lowering

    alright, thanks. anyway, i like windoom because i like to play doom as close to the dos version as possible. i'd play the original executables if i didn't use windows xp.

    What system did you have your 1st Doom expierence?

    when i was 7, i played it on the 32x. then after columbine, i wanted to prove a stupid point to make my parents proud, and i, uh... ...smashed the cartridge with a shovel. then i was 13 and i got it for pc, that was my real first experience as far as i'm concerned. that was on a computer with a 266mhz cpu, 64mb ram, some agp card, a sound blaster pci 128 (i think), and win95. this was all just a couple years ago. now i play in 1152x864 with an athlon xp 2700+ :)
  16. i got deepsea 12.01 and started a map. but the lower unpeg doesn't seem to work. i uploaded the wad here: http://www.olddoom.com/tehwads0rz.wad btw, im using prboom. that crappy little sector in the grass was a test of unpeg, not bad wad editing :) thanks.
  17. iamthejake2000

    unpeg not working in new version of deepsea?

    i tried zdoom and it didn't work <:( i was talking about lines 43, 44, 45, and 46.

    Can cheating change the outcome of the game?

    I reeeeaaally wanna cheat, but I also want to see the normal ending sequence/outcome/whatever. Can cheating change this? Thanks.

    Can cheating change the outcome of the game?

    Thanks a lot! Now I can finally beat that damn Guardian....

    Can cheating change the outcome of the game?

    Yeah, that's what I meant. Is there anybody that is certain of the answer? Not that I don't appreciate your help, DoomUK :)

    Doom sounds CD

    I found out how to record any output to my speakers, which means no microphone required. I made a 12-track CD that's ENTIRELY the sounds of me playing Doom. 62 minutes! :) I was wondering if I should try selling copies of this novelty to hard-core Doom fans on my site (olddoom.com). What do you think?

    My Little DooMer

    I let my 5- and 6-year old cousins play Doom at my grandparent's house, they were surprisingly good at it. Didn't strafe, though. :) I had my moral doubts, but my grandmother insisted it was okay. She only had a problem with them playing Vice City. My 6-year-old Chinese adopted cousin (who can't speak English too well) called it "Shoom."

    Doom sounds CD

    Yeah, I guess... but: buying this cd (1) has better quality than a tape, (2) has no interuptions that recording with a microphone would cause (someone knocking on your door, the player coughing, etc.), and (3) would save you time and effort. I was thinking $3 a CD ($1 for the price to buy a CDR, $1 for shipping, and $1 for the CD). What do you tink? Would anyone want a copy?
