  1. Hello everyone!


    It has been more than a year since my last post and honestly that is how long it has been since I really last peeked into the community. It is really interesting how things and I have changed since that time a year ago and honestly I like the future I am headed into. Things have been quite fortunate for me and honestly most days of the week I smile and am filled with joy. Do not give up your dreams, because they might just come true when you least expect them to.


    I hope all of you have a successful and happy future! <3

      Hi there RestlessRodent. You obviously don't know me but i lurked around here back in your active days. I just wanna say hi, and thank you for your contributions to the community (especially programming). Glad to see you happy, and thanks once again for dropping by!


      Also cheers for being a fellow Roguelike fan.

  2. Hello, I am going to say that I am transgender (MTF) and that I prefer to go by she/her.


    I know it has been 2 months since I last posted and I will say that I did move on although sometimes I do think about the Doom community from time to time as I have been a part of it for 12 years. I suppose in a way it is kind of like an old home you no longer live in that you pass sometimes on your trip to work every once in awhile. Here I am just knocking on the door one more time.


    I hope all of you have a successful and happy future!

      Best of luck to you in the future, and thanks again for your invaluable contributions to the Doom community! Take care of yourself :)

      I hope you too have a successful and happy future!! Even though I don't know you, we are part of the LGBTIQ+ community and we should spread love and positivity with each other and the rest of the world. So, take care and never let hate and prejudices get into you, always stay true to yourself!  

  3. Hello everyone, this is RestlessRodent (they/them/their) where I used to go by
    the name of GhostlyDeath. I am writing this as
    a goodbye. I will no longer be a part of this community and I will not be
    working on ReMooD any more. I will be honest and say that for the past few
    years I have not really been a part of it at all. Personally I have gone
    through some rough times and it was really tough. However now I have seen
    where I can be happy and be myself. I have also accepted myself and who I am
    and I no longer want to be afraid of myself. It is a great feeling. To be
    honest, I have felt much pain here and I am going to let it go. I have changed
    so much since I first started being in the community. For those of you who I
    had spent time with, I enjoyed it. I do know that I have been quite abrasive in
    the past which has rubbed people the wrong way. I want to apologize for this
    and I hope you can forgive me. I have met many friends here and I want to thank
    all of you for being as such, continue being awesome! It is time that I accept
    that ReMooD is a failure of a source port. I have rebooted it so many times in
    the past with rewrites, feature creep, and other such things. The goal post I
    kept setting has always been out of reach. Even if I set the post to a closer
    point it is still out of reach. At this point I barely work on it and I just
    never have the heart to work on it at all. Probably my most successful project
    was one that I never really intended to be successful in the first place, which
    is ChocoRenderLimits. Basically it was created to help Esselfortium in
    developing her rather ambitious vanilla level set. Since this project is still
    so useful to people I have handed it away. It is something that something you
    want to be successful fails completely but something you never intended to be
    in the first place was. One thing I encourage is to learn programming so that
    you too can experiment on source ports. Hacking Doom has really helped me
    increase my skill level because the effect of what I did had a fun result. I
    would say that if you do have a hobby project, keep it fun and not a hobby.
    However, do consider things like refactoring and burn out in mind. It might be
    tough at first, but believe in yourself and you can do it. To level designers,
    keep designing levels because you are pretty awesome at it. To be honest I have
    not played a new WAD in years.


    If you are asking yourself why? I have only just been in with my foot keeping
    it open for the chance to come back for the past few years. A few times I
    reached in with my knee but it always went back to the foot. So I am going to
    close the door now and move on.


    I will ask that in the future, please do not bother me about ReMooD or


    Thank you and may our paths potentially cross in the future!

      Sad to see you go; thank you for everything you've contributed. I'm glad to hear that you've learned something from your source port hacking - really it's personal growth and experience that's the most important thing of all, rather than any notion of "success" or fame. I wish you all the best for the future.

      I appreciate all you've done for the community. Thank you.

      Fare thee well RR, good luck with your life and all that. You'll always be welcome here. :]

    Did you cheat through Doom as a kid?

    Hell yeah, I could not beat E1M3 without getting killed on ITYTD.

    Site and/or forum bugs or things not working

    If a follower has no avatar you cannot view their profile on the brief follower list. Also I cannot seem to find the list of those whom I follow.
  7. This could work with the Doom Wiki also. Perhaps have some kind of integration.

    The "My new username" thread

    Sorry, I only accept payment in acorns.
  9. This is a test of the activity feed thing. This concludes the only test.

    The "My new username" thread

    I already changed my name and no one knows who I am, a mystery shrouded by a cup of coffee. With everyone else changing names, I have no idea who they were.

    New Forum

    Personally I always skipped the front page and went to the forums. Really you just need to put "News" first with perhaps some hot news topics before the rest of the forums. If you care about more news you can just go into the news forum. The site seems a bit more crammed now. Also blogs are gone, not sure if they have been replaced or if we should just post in everything else.

    DoomLegacy 1.46.2

    I remember it being deprecated, I suppose it was never removed?
  13. RestlessRodent

    zdoom (or successors) (re)licensing efforts?

    Best thing to do is to ask them all the same question.

    Reasons for success or failure of source ports?

    Then can you explain all of the code that goes like this? if (demoversion > 132) P_SpawnSmoke(); else if (demoversion > 127) P_SpawnPuff();

    Reasons for success or failure of source ports?

    Doom Legacy has demo compatibility in it so you can play older demos. However it is not accurate so most demos just desync. In an offshoot of ReMooD I was able to play a large number of Doom and Doom Legacy demos.
