  2. I'm so glad demons aren't real. This was truly the feel-good film of the summer.

    This is "Under the Sea" from The Little Mermaid.

    Undo (not finished yet, sorry :( )

    Can I play as Miyamoto?
  5. Noticed a couple of things about MAP25 in 1.2. Sorry if I missed either of these getting reported already. In the blue key area, it seems possible to become softlocked if you enter the pain elemental secret after the wall raises behind you, and then exit by jumping out the window instead of backtracking: Also, the walk-over lines that lower the invisible bridge sector here can be triggered by projectiles, including the incoming revenant rockets: Also, some proofreading that probably nobody asked for: virtual* resemblance* "Moeller" is probably the more proper spelling in English if you're trying to avoid umlauts.
  6. I'm up to MAP28 so far and this is without a doubt one of the coolest megawads I've played in quite a long time. I'll definitely be replaying it ASAP once it's finished.

    There is only one song about Dexter and it's this one
  8. The resulting struct should only be 22 bytes, not 24. There should still be three 16-bit fields in the middle. (On a sort of related note, a few weeks ago I totally reworked how structs are specified in the master branch of omgifol on GitHub. You might find the new style a bit easier to work with - the only real difference for this situation is that you'd be changing "ctypes.c_uint16" to "ctypes.c_uint32")

    Port Compact: Doom Format Instadeath Floors

    Making it a Boom generalized sector flag would seem like the obvious choice, to be able to combine it with lighting effects and other stuff. You could perhaps then also repurpose the two existing damage flags to be able to further specify the insteadeath behavior (e.g. something like the things fraggle suggested w/r/t killing monsters, actors that are in midair, etc). Naturally Heretic would need something different, but not having a generalized special system for that game means there are plenty of unused special numbers to poach instead.

    SNES Doom source released under GPLv3

    I'm not aware of any non-ancient emulators that do this.

    How rare are these CD-ROM releases?

    This is the CD that I have. Compare with the 1.9 CD from the Depths of Doom Trilogy collection (different id and GT logos, different fine print, no ESRB rating). The other ones that I'm aware of (id Anthology, etc.) use totally different artwork so it's easy to tell them apart. I wasn't aware of a 1.7 CD release even existing. Do you own one?

    1.666 is the original CD release (source: I own it). Not uncommon at all.
  14. Lately, I've been taking a look at old CD-ROM releases from Interactive Entertainment, a disc magazine that was released from February 1994 to April 1996. Unlike other magazine CDs that just supplemented actual print magazines, IE was a "pure CD-ROM" publication that contained all of the previews, reviews, and other editorial content entirely on the disc, accompanied by audio and video commentary from the magazine staff. One interesting result is that the previews featured in IE actually contain "full quality" PCX screenshots of games, rather than the small and sometimes hard-to-see images often featured in print magazines. I've even found a number of preview screenshots of games that are completely unique to these CDs and did not seem to have been published in other sources (at least not ones that I can currently find online). Anyway, I collected the screenshots from the Doom-engine games featured in previews from IE. Doom II preview (Sep. 1994) Heretic preview (Sep. 1994) Hexen preview (Nov. 1995) A few things of note: The Doom II shots feature early sprites for the Revenant and Arachnotron. I think these have actually been seen before, but I can't remember if they were actual "raw" screenshots or just magazine scans The Heretic shots feature a completely different status bar design (features "mana", possibly in place of ammo) The Hexen shots feature a very early logo, an unknown item icon, and possibly shots of an early version of Darkmere or something. This is a different batch of images than the ones Romero released in August as hexenscn.zip. No Strife preview, unfortunately; by 1996, IE had begun transitioning to a more traditional "print magazine with CD" format and had stopped including previews on the CD. The entire series is on the Internet Archive, and I'm in the process of collecting all of the preview screenshots from each issue and putting them online for easy viewing. A few choice images:
