  1. San Andreas. My love for Dwayne Johnson has no bounds.
  2. 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. :)
  3. 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?
  4. Might want to have a look at this TAS

  6. After a fair amount of effort importing a Sound Blaster Pro 2 pure chance gets me a Sound Blaster 16.

      It looks like that shroomfish is the one tingling.

      This millennial Spiderman reboot sucks.

  9. I mean sure... It's something about the compile process being successful. But what did it do? Is it some in-house Raven thing? Or something more standard from back in the 90s I have not heard of before? Did it upload the build somewhere for the testers? Is this the reason -timedemo demo1 on vanilla Hexen makes the Warrior explode? Maybe they did this on purpose. Just when you think the compile is a success, make tells you it cannot find prsucc. We're going to tell you it worked by marking the build a failure with an error message indicating success. Will this forever remain a mystery?
  10. The make files that come with the Hexen and Heretic source release will run the command "prsucc" once the binary has been made. tic.exe : $(LOCOBJS) $(GLOBOBJS) i_ibm.obj wlink @tic.lnk copy tic.exe striptic.exe wstrip striptic.exe 4gwbind 4gwpro.exe striptic.exe heretic.exe -V prsucc hex.exe : $(LOCOBJS) $(GLOBOBJS) wlink @hex.lnk copy hex.exe striphex.exe wstrip striphex.exe 4gwbind 4gwpro.exe striphex.exe hexen.exe -V copy hex.map v_$(VERSION_ID).map prsucc What is this "prsucc"?
  11. Is getting Chocolate Doom to compile with Open Watcom a thing people care about? I've managed to get chocolate doom 2.3 to compile and run. It did require some small changes though. There's a compile error in doom/p_setup.c. Also had to add a struct packing macro as Watcom C expects its _Packed keyword to appear before the struct keyword.

  13. This is amazing. Makes me want to make levels full of monsters again.
  14. According to Etv news, that signer also has an interesting criminal history including robbery, murder and rape charges. link: http://www.enca.com/south-africa/interpreter
  15. I'm surprised that people care so much about this.
