  1. Nice ideas, but I guess it is hard to find someone qualified. Sounds easy, but surely is a demanding and from time to time quite frustrtating task. I wouldn't want to do it. Think of all the idiots asking for updates to their crappy contributions, just because they made a stupid mistake over and over again ;-)
  2. THAT's so true. We had this sign for many years on the door to our server's room: (For the English readers: "Big Brother is not the enemy. The enemy is millions of little brothers who are depriving me of good information by filling it with tons of data garbage")

    Sc-55(mki or mkii) midi keyboard??

    Please remember, if you want to connect the SoundCanvas to your computer/DAW/whatever you'll need an MIDI-Interface. The old RS-232-computer connector on SC's back isn't supported on modern operating systems ... And DON'T buy one of the cheap china USB-A-to-2x-DIN interface cables; they tend to fail too often.

    Thoughts on Crash being in new Doom/Quake?

    I always loved Crash, but I don't see, how this is related to Classic Doom.

    What is a demo?

    An LMP is a MIDI-File when a Video is an MP3 :-) Confused? OK. LMP- and MIDI-files are just a bunch of commands gathered together in a file to tell the engine what to exactly do. "Turn right, make 10 steps an fire" could be the clear text translation of an LMP. "Select a bass sound and play an E2 note with medium velocity" could be the clear text translation of a MIDI File. BOTH are useless without some interpreter/engine/MIDI Device. MP3 and Videofile are just containers holding the visible/audible mediastream representing the result of playing back the aforementined files. MIDI Files and LMPs save space, are convenient and can easily be edited and sent.

    That Scrolling Face-Wall Thingy

    Necrobumping is cool. We're playing a (nearly) 30 year old game. To reanimate a 20+ year old thread fits kind of well into the picture, I guess :-) (And to go even further OT: Imagine a forum, where you can respond only to ten+ years old posts....I know, it would not work, but I find the idea hilarious. Most likely, Douglas Adams would appreciate it.;-) )
  7. Well, did you notice that this is the Classic Doom forum?

    Happy Birthday DOOM!

    They're only interested in making money. Only hope for some decent content from 'official' site is SIGIL 2, but that's for Doom2 and John won't make it on time....' Doomworld mappers will have to save that day...

    Quake Remastered

    I don't know Amazing Prime Gaming or the Epic Games Store. I guess, this is a DRM'ed version, right?

    ROLAND SoundCanvas for sale

    Maybe I was not clear enough: You first have to win the win the eBay auction, THEN we talk about shipment. You have to add the amount for an DHL parcel to your region of the world (-7 Euro for shipping in Germany, which obviously does not apply) to your highest bid and than we're square. https://www.dhl.de/en/privatkunden/pakete-versenden/weltweit-versenden.html Sorry for any uncertainties!!

    ROLAND SoundCanvas for sale

    Dear fellow Doomers, (sorry, for this shameless self-promotion.) I just wanted to point your valued attention to these three SoundModule, which are for sale now on eBay: https://www.ebay.de/itm/225274212290 https://www.ebay.de/itm/225274216963 https://www.ebay.de/itm/225274220390 I am going to sell three of my SoundCanvas and maybe you're just looking for one... Usually I only ship within Germany, but if one of your guys buys one and is willing to pay the additional cost, I am sure we will find a solution.

    Quake Remastered

    Aquisition of compatibility -or -portability- is one thing. Adding more and more layers of abstraction and virtualizations, adding just another box to the box-in-a-box and sell this as a benefit is another matter, which I disrespect.

    I'm so sorry! I am just a frugal guy, who's noticed that there is no native Linux port. Please forgive me.

    Of course not. Some people are even convinced, that earth is flat and covid is a lie.

    Proton or Wine are just helpful workarounds. Like a crutch for a broken leg.It works, but is not the real thing. I as a Linux gamer simply don't care who has to order a port. Fact is, as long as there is none, they don't get my money.
