    Doom64 cart too dark on LCD TV

    Fuck the TC. Oh we're gonna port this so more people can play it. But while we're at it we're gonna change it. Get the EX, it's much more true to the original game. I never had problems with Doom64 being too dark on several different older TVs. I also have tried it on my Samsung plasma using the component cables with no problems. I think some people's eyes are just shot. I saw lots of people bitching about Doom 3 being too dark to see anything too, but I had 0 problems here either. In neither game did I have to adjust the brightness either, in-game or on my tv/monitor. Shut your curtains, sun glare can really fuck up a game :-p Edit: As far as changing your tv's settings, alot of newer tvs have seperate picture settings for each source. For example my brightness/contrast/sharp etc for my component source is different from my HDMI 1 & 2 settings. Unless you have a bunch of stuff that hooks up via component, you can just adjust it to whatever crazy settings that make the game look ok and then whenever you switch back to the source that you use for tv/movies etc they should retain their settings. Assuming your tv has this feature.

    Practice sidestepping the rockets, honestly it's not that hard.

    Does anything compare to the BFG?

    I'm pretty sure there's a few games out there that feature handheld nuke launchers.

    Favorite MIDIs?

    E1M5's music is my favorite in all of Doom. I also dig the music in Plutonia32 (I realize it's from E2M8 but it just seems to fit better in this map) and TNT31. I'm pretty sure that's earlier in the game somewhere but I don't remember where. It's also the music on the stats screen.
  10. I have actually thought about that holodeck thing before; I watch me some trek (sue me) and if I had a holodeck, one of the first things I'd try is playing Doom

    what the stupidest thing you did in doom?

    UGH, I don't even know how long I spent trying to find that. I cursed those cocksuckers at Id upside down for making a secret that was so hard to find.

    Doom 4?

    So which original doom level didn't fit this description perfectly?

    Anyone play vanilla DOOM?

    Wait a minute, how do you get it to read the longer filenames without changing them? I'm lost

    Experiences with Nightmare!

    OK I must be remembering this wrong because I've been trying to repeat my NM E1 performance and its not happening lol I swear I remember beating this on NM, but my memory DOES suck... maybe it was E2

    Scariest DOOM map?

    Good to see somebody besides me who played Doom 3 and got into it instead of spending the whole game nitpicking everything that wasn't exactly what they expected. And Doom64, Dark Citadel, right on.

    The Cacodemon's skinny eye

    This is fuckin awesome

    what the stupidest thing you did in doom?

    Yeah well I've got Modern Warfare on my PS3 and I suck at FPSs on console, so when I try to do that I DIE. I'm a slow learner, I just love my shotguns.

    what the stupidest thing you did in doom?

    I actually walked in on my bro trying to kill the invisibility sphere once. He thought it was a pain elemental. In his defense, he doesn't really know much about Doom. I had just told him there was another floating enemy besides the Cacodemon, and I guess he thought that was it. Probably the stupidest thing I do is I always wait WAY too late in a large firefight to switch away from the SG or SSG. I pretty much tote a shotgun the whole game/pwad to save ammo on the big guns for when I REALLY need it. But I love shotgunning demons so much I always forget to switch to the rocket launcher or plasma gun when 30 Revs teleport into the room. This has also led to getting me in trouble in modern FPS's because Doom's shotgun is so kickass, so I always have it in my head that I wanna use the shotgun in any game that has one, which is usually a big mistake. Edit for spelling corrections, I have OCD.

    Experiences with Nightmare!

    You know what strafing is right? And that's totally not meant to be insulting, because when I was younger I didn't know about strafing and I could barely make it through E1 and always got killed by the Barons. It makes a HUGE difference in gameplay. If you use strafing and are still having such problems, you must have the reflexes of a glacier. Blame mom and dad

    Experiences with Nightmare!

    Yes. Being only a marginally talented Doomer, just beating the first episode on NM is enough of an accomplishment for me. After that it gets too scripted. Playing something over and over and over again until I get it right isn't very fun to me. Not even the WHAT NOW BITCH? feeling when you finally beat it is enough of a reward, but that's just me.

    Yeah it would be cool if they were modified so that they won't resurrect when the player has LOS with them. Although you could still take advantage of that, it would give it a little more depth.
