    R.I.P. Jason "Amaster" Masihdas

    I was shocked to see the sad news about Amaster a few days ago, but it was all the more confusing and sad due to the fact that a mere hour or so before reading about it here, I'd received news of the sudden death of a girl I grew up with who was close enough to me for me to consider her a sister. I was too depressed and in shock to actually log in and expresss due condolences to the community and to Jason's family and friends, but I couldn't keep delaying it. I especially felt the need to do so after reading the following post by Danarchy: I didn't know Jason in real life, and I only ever talked to him on IRC or saw his posts here. But my own initial behaviour on IRC was very much questionable, and most of the time it seemed that Assmaster looked at my opinions fairly and criticized them maturely while putting me in my place. I appreciate that now because I see it as one of the reasons I'm a more mature person both online and in real life. I felt the exact same way after receiving the tragic news about both our long-time family friends' daughter and about Jason. It's sad that sometimes it takes for tragedies like this to wake us up and make us realize the far-reaching consequences of our actions. On that note, I have to mention that I don't think the girl I'm talking about committed suicide (very unlikely); all I know at this point is that she died (suffocated) in her sleep. But after seeing her family breaking down and crying at every reminder of her (such as her empty room with all her stuff from the night she died still in it) and being ripped to shreds from the sadness of the loss, I can't even contemplate how I myself could ever be selfish or desperate enough to put anyone through that, and I hope it'll never come to that. As with any similar situation, I'm mostly at a loss for words, and I fear anything I say may be out of place or inappropriate. I can only hope and pray that she along with Jason and any other souls who passed so soon and tragically are in a better place. R.I.P.

    Dylan 'Toke' McIntosh, R.I.P.

    What you wrote was still fitting enough and represented us quite nicely Quasar. You should be proud. Most of us didn't even get a chance to be there. Even showing up on behalf of the community was an appropriate nod to both Toke and the community. I'm sure everyone else is as moved as I am that you went and chatted with his family as well.

    That's a beautiful gesture. That almost brought tears to my eyes.

    I haven't even had anything to dowith anything Doom-related for more than a year now, 'cuz I've begun to concentrate on RL and making a career/living, but when I read this I had to post.... I think I only ever saw Toke on IRC and maybe talked to him a few times too. But I was used to seeing him on forums here and there and he was a familiar Doom community member to me. I'm saddenned to read this news,and to make it worse I was already listening to sad music when I saw this news post. Rest In Peace Dylan, and God Bless you and your family. I hope yourfriends and family and anyone who was close to you or knew you gets through this. Peace

    Hey, DW Still Hosts Stuff Apparently

    Lutrov: Heh yeah well like I said I'll have to be done with the school stuff first. But even if I had no school work right now I'd still not be able to write a review 'cuz my mouse is b0rked and the USB jack is pwnt. I'll have to fix that and then get "ein neu maus".

    jDoom 1.8.5 !

    Dani: Yeah I don't know why and still haven't figured out what the problem is. When Doomsday loads (be it through Kickstart or manually launching JDooM), the first little window that shows resources being loaded shows up and after a few things are loaded (look like textures but I can't tell 'cuz it loads too fast) it just quits. It doesn't actually go into the game (port) at all, it just stalls and quits when the first window "loading stuff" shows up. What's worse is that noone's been able to figure out why it's misbehaving like this. I've even talked to Jaakko and Jow about this before, but they couldn't figure out what was wrong with it either. :( Of course I tried the others as well (JHexen/JHeretic) and they wouldn't work either. I even tried Risen-3D, but still no luck. Anyways, nice to hear about the roadmap for Doomsday.... Most of the features you mentioned sound like they're gonna attract people to JDooM a bit more so that's good. But I take it the more hefty features such as slopes won't be added for a while, right? Not that I'm complaining (too much) but it'd be great if Doomsday supported slopes and sector-over-sector in the future....

    jDoom 1.8.5 !

    Dani: I still can't run it on my PC. Looks nice though, with the shiny surfaces and wat-not.... BTW is it true you and SkyJake are planning to add some ZDooM features to Doomsday?

    jDoom 1.8.4

    That's MY fantasy! Get your own! The problem with merging all the ports would be that there would no longer be a clear and specific direction for "the port" to take. As it is ZDooM is concentrating more on features and JDooM on graphics, for example. If that fantasy ever became reality I don't see how the authors could manage a unified effort without killing each other. But we can still dream about a monster port with the graphics of JDooM and features of ZDooM ad other ports....
