    What difficulty do you play Classic Doom on?

    For the original games and most custom wads I go with Ultra-Violence. Occasionally if a custom wad is too ridiculous I'll go down to Hurt Me Plenty. A few years ago I decided to swallow my pride and accept that I just don't have the patience to get through some user made levels on Ultra-Violence.

    Which DOOM did you play first?

    Doom shareware in 1993, Doom 2 full version in 1994, Ultimate Doom in 1995 (although I did rent SNES DOOM that same year), Doom 64 in 1997. I remember looking all over walmart, kmart, and target looking for the full version of DOOM after I played the shareware. It would've been nice knowing that you had to mail order the full version. But once I got Ultimate Doom for my 10th birthday I was happy.
  3. I think you missed the original point. Duke3D was still 2D (or 2.5D), Qtest (Quake Test), was a full 3D polygon based engine. That is, in my mind, a bigger step than Wolf/Blakestone to Doom.

    Is The Sound Necessary?

    I would suggest playing it with sound. Most of the sounds are "iconic" and just really well made, and the arch-vile activation sound still makes my ears perk up. When I realized I couldn't hear the text message alert on my phone, or it just got tuned out, I switched it to the arch-vile. Now I never don't hear it. Even in my sleep. Music however, I've heard it enough times. There are some really well made songs in the Doom soundtrack, but after hearing d_runnin for the thousandth time I just started turning the music off and started listening to my own music when I play. I do have to turn it up for Sign of Evil.

    Im new. what should i know or do?

    Do something really notable in the forums, or something really stupid. Or something really notably stupid. Your title will change as your post count increases, but to get a custom title you need do something extra special. And usually they're not that flattering. Oh, and you can look at this thread from a new user a few days ago. Some good advice in there. And welcome to the forums.

    Worst Doom Level

    Dis. Dis isn't fun. Dis isn't a functional, acceptable end to Doom. Dis is a piece of crap. The only other levels I can think of that really irritated me from Doom 2 was Nirvana and The Abandoned Mines. But Dis takes the cake. It's the end of Doom, and it sucks.

    What are you listening to?

    I'm working on a painting for my brother and his wife, they just bought a new house and asked me to paint something for them. So I'm listening to Amore del Tropico while I do it. One of the weirdest things that I've ever had happen to me was when I brought up told my brother I bought Amore Del Tropico on vinyl, and his wife said she love the Black Heart Procession. First person in the world that I've ever met that has heard of them.

    I really don't envy the person that had to run that data cable. But I really envy their skill and autism in running it as perfectly as they did. The same way I look at ten pieces of conduit paralleled with multiple 60's and doglegged 30's, with little 22 1/2's and think "Goddamm... that's beautiful". The installation shouldn't have been done like that, but when there's no choice but to bend your conduit around everything else, it can end up beautiful. 110.12.

    Is there any rules or FAQ for this forum?

    Yeah, I found this from Deadnail that was written in 2001, same year I joined, and it's what I've gone by. But some of it is incredibly dated. Especially clan talk in the doom 3 forum, because nobody talks in the Doom 3 forum anymore. But they're decent words to live by. Official Rules: =============== 1. Stick to the topic. No clan talk in the Doom 3 forum and no editing questions in the General forum. That's why we have them. 2. No pr0n, warez, romz, or otherwise illegal/objectionable content. 3. No requests for said content. Use email, it's not our business. 4. Specifically, no requests for the full version of Doom. Go to Hell on your own. 5. No flaming. Go to the FYAD forums at somethingawful.com if that's what you're into. Common Sense Logic: =================== 1. Don't make a new thread just to introduce yourself. You're only asking for trouble. 2. If no one is responding to your post don't post it again. They see it; double posting is a crime punishable by flagellation. 3. Don't volunteer unneccessary information. Your religion is your own business, and that goes for gender and sexual preference as well. 4. Think about your message before you post. If you think it's something better said with email or an IRC session you're probably right. 5. Respect permeates outward. If you want to be treated well then treat others well. In other words, 'Fuck you' is not a good first impression. 6. POSTING IN ALL CAPS MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A CHILD. 7. PoStINg iN BiZZaRe CaPS MakES YoU LooK LiKE An IDioT. 8 posting without punctuation makes you look lazy 9. Posng withh atrocious spellleng refletks veri porly upon yourslf. 10. P05T1nG 1N L33T 5P34K M@K35 Y0U L00K L1K3 A R3T@RD. 11. If you're going to make a large post have the decency to break it down into paragraphs. If it's one humongous block of text no one will bother reading it. 12. If you double post take the time to delete one of them. 13. Take the time to browse a months worth of thread titles before you start a new one. Otherwise you might get verbally abused for being redundant. You're very welcome, glad I could hep.

    Is there any rules or FAQ for this forum?

    There used to be. Can't find it now. I'm not sure if it disappeared during the forum change. Basically don't be a dick. Treat others with respect. Don't ask for or post warez (I.E. ask "Where can I get a full version of Doom for free", or post a link to a .wad that you made that includes all of the original Doom files plus copyrighted music, plus stolen code, and stolen graphics, etc... If people want to play it, they need to have their own copy of Doom). Posting links to warez, abandonware, or emulators, or porn, on the forums is looked down upon. Because Ling doesn't need companies busting his ass because his forum has become a distribution method for illegal materials. Be respectful, most people will be willing to help you out with any questions you have as long as you are respectful to them. And don't make multiple posts about the same topic. Don't necro posts unless you have something extremely important to add. So if someone posted about a project they were working on 6 years ago, don't necro the post and ask "Is it done yet?". Don't flame others, don't start fights. It goes back to the original point "Don't be a dick". If you have to ask yourself before posting "Am I being a dick/tool/redundant dick tool?" don't post it. Welcome to the forums!

    What's rare in your music collection?

    Huh, since this topic got bumped, does anyone know a site that would give me a good estimate on the Diabolus in Musica red vinyl? There's one on Ebay for $200, but I really can't find any other estimates. I mean it's in near mint condition, I had to open it to find out it was one of the 500 red vinyl versions. And I played the first two tracks before I realized that was a really stupid thing to do. (Which, oddly enough, really pissed me off that I didn't get one of the regular black vinyl versions. Really wanted to listen to it on vinyl.) I'm just wondering if someone has some information, because I haven't been able to find anything on-line.
  13. Glad I'm not the only one. I mean, Pumpkinhead was the result of a man trying to get vengeance for his dead son, and a witch resurrects a corpse which becomes Pumpkinhead. And it came out in 1988, and it's pretty clear the folks at iD based most of Doom on 70's and 80's horror movies and metal bands. The movie itself is pretty enjoyable for a b-list horror movie from the late 80s; and the poem that inspired the movie leaves me pretty sure that Pumpkinhead was the inspiration for the Arch Vile. “Keep away from Pumpkinhead, Unless you’re tired of living, His enemies are mostly dead, He’s mean and unforgiving" /excerpt Describes the Vile perfectly. And I may be wrong... maybe someone should ask Romero.

    Damn that's a beautiful picture. It takes me back to when I was just a wee-little-lad and my grandfather went into work on Saturdays to work on accounting and inventory. I got to play on those beautiful Apple IIe's. They were a little old, but sufficed. He had three computers and dot-matrix printer in his office, pretty high-profile. He bought a bunch of games on floppy disks so my brother and I could play on them while he worked. Bubblegum Factory, Loderunner, Snake, Gorilla Wars. Good memories, thanks for posting that. Even if it was a joke.
