  1. Wow... this is not the nostalgia I was expecting. I remember playing an early build of this way back when. Awesome to see it's actually a thing now.

    New Official Grabbag MIDIs Online!

    Naturally I had to try these on my Sound Blaster 16, and it sounds pretty awesome.

    Am I in a Heretic or Doom mood today?
  5. Got my old DOS PC working again. It's beautiful.

    Can listen to the glorious bloops of the old Sound Blaster 16 once again.

  6. As far as DEH/BEX goes I meant all the extensions EE added, not specifically music. The motivation is that apparently those extensions are used and it's not obvious Woof/MBF doesn't support them. I didn't even know they existed until I tried Oblige wads with Woof. I'm not opposed to UMAPINFO though.
  7. I tried this with wads generated with Oblige and noticed the shuffle music options does not work. Turns out Oblige does this by using the Music Block which is an Eternity Extension to DeHackEd/BEX. Would adding these extensions be within scope for this project?

    Does anyone have ChocoDos?

    I considered doing this. I've done a few related things. I ported the original Boom 2.02 source from DJGPP to Open Watcom. I used input code from Heretic and audio from RoTT. I managed to get the Heretic and Hexen sources to compile verbatim using the leaked DMX files and the original Watcom compiler. I also contributed some changes to Chocolate Doom that allows it to compile with Open Watcom. I should probably check to see if this works with SDL 2. At the end of the day the only thing I can say is that these things all worked, but are otherwise uninteresting.

    Go 2 It... anyone done it?

    This was unexpectedly nostalgic. Go 2 It and PUNISHER are what got me hooked on making stupid maps full of monsters.

    Kate Fox has passed away

    I think Kate was one of the first people in the Doom community to talk to me. It's weird, not too long ago I'd been wondering where she was now. This is truly sad.

    Most recent movie you saw

    San Andreas. My love for Dwayne Johnson has no bounds.
  13. Yeah. I think that's what I'll do. New repo with only the Boom source. Diff the two repos and redo everything step by step. Thanks. :)
  14. A few years ago I took the Boom 2.02 source, and I ported it to use Open Watcom instead of DGJPP. I even went as far as getting it to compile for Windows. Here's some of the stuff I remember doing with it: For DOS removed Allegro. Rewrote input code and tried unify keyboard and mouse inputs. For DOS used audiolib from the Rise of the Triad source release for sound. (Even though the RoTT code release is GPL, I've always had my doubts about the audio library). For Windows used SDL. For Windows used a GLSL 1.2 shader for rendering (mostly used for scaling, but I also played with a 24bit color map). Make files were reverse engineered from the Heretic and Hexen source release. Removed a massive amount of comments, reformatted source files and moved functions/variables around. Unfortunately due to inexperience the code repository is a complete mess. I can't even provide a detailed explanation of what's going on because I honestly have no idea anymore. Over this year I've been putting together a retro PC as well as making some small contributes to Chocolate Doom, and in doing so I am reminded of this old code. Given that I have an environment where I can run and test a DOS/Windows 98 era source port, it seems like it'd be a loss not to continue with this. Should I begin the process again from the Boom 2.02 source, using my existing code as a reference, or should I try and salvage it somehow?

    A strange question....

    Might want to have a look at this TAS
