    Warming Up
  1. Gentlemen, take it easy! I've never seen such reactions based on mere assumptions! There are no "students" or "teaching" as some of you have thought. I'm not here to talk about the effectiveness of the teaching part. I don't care about that one bit. I just want to discuss how to make this. I'm making this for my own learning purposes. The "students" are me. I'm starting to prep for an entrance exam in January so I have 5 months to read, and I wanted to do the studying like this. Study with Doom. Doom becomes my exercise book. I plan to make it this summer, leave it to wait for January and then fire it up. Otherwise I'd be reading the problems from a book with B&W text. The book doesn't reward you like Doom does. If you don't get this/agree with this/feel a need to whine about how it doesn't help the students, please move on to the next thread to ramble. We're here to discuss about technical issues, like some good chaps here have done. This is for my eyes only. Thanks for the suggestions! This is the info I need. Kudos, sirs!
  2. This may come out silly but I'm planning on building a learning platform for natural sciences (chemistry, physics, biology), and as I love playing Doom, why not combine the two together? So what I would need is a kind of a "riddle property" for Doom that goes like this: 1. You shoot some demons to keep the player's interest on the game and after a while you enter a room. There's a door in the room and it's locked, and the only way to unlock it is to answer the "riddle". 2. There's a wall - or you get an on-screen text - that shows a question (the riddle) that requires calculation (e.g. "How many moles of HCl do you need to neutralize 2.5 moles of NaOH?") 3. After you've calculated the value, you enter the value somewhere (there aren't means to do this in Doom AFAIK), and if it's right, the door unlocks/opens. If the riddle is written on the wall, I need custom textures and need to make an image file of all the riddles, possibly even multiple images because of the low resolution of the game. But if the riddle can be generated on-screen (like "YOU'VE GOT THE SHOTGUN" text), it'd be easier and the text would wrap nicely in separate lines. Even better yet if the values of the questions could be made subject to randomization so you couldn't cheat/remember your way to the end while you're playing the second time. If none of this can be made, I think teleports could be the way to include a simple answer handler: there are four teleports in a room, and on the side of each there is an answer. If you select the wrong answer and go through the teleport, you end up in a dark room with lava and Cyberdemons! Any suggestions, guys? Are there already source ports that could make this happen? I really want this to happen and help is much appreciated.

    Doom source code editing problems

    DaniJ and Quasar, that's very bad to hear... You got me into other thoughts... Maybe I should give this one up and try learning with other games.

    Doom source code editing problems

    Sorry I expressed myself badly earlier. I forgot to clarify that I would like to edit the source code, not to do the job with anything else (like patching). Editing Doom source code is a fun way to learn C++. Patching doesn't teach me C++, if I have understood correctly. Back to fraggle's message, could you be more specific with the sentence "If you really want to use SDL Doom, add a #define in the project called __WIN32__." I don't follow you with this. A project called __WIN32__? #define? W...where do I put those? - Not a codehead kind of Sera BTW. Thank you all for the information you have provided. I first thought this subject wouldn't get any replies. Thank you, truly.

    Doom source code editing problems

    Fun. I want to modify the port to achieve some nice, easy-codable features, like - maximum health limit 500 % - slow rocket launcher rockets - no shotgun reloading after shot - maximum ammo limit more than it is with each weapon And some others. I'm not a codehead so this kind of easy coding is great to start with.

    Doom source code editing problems

    I actually started with SDL Doom because I have been able to make an EXE file of it but it was for Symbian mobile phone environment (Nokia 9210). But if there are easier and more supported ports, let me know what they are :)
  7. Hi! I'm using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 Standard Edition on Windows XP Home and I've done these things for now: - downloaded SDL Doom source code and extracted it - downloaded SDL source code for Win32 and extracted it - created a Win32 application project in MS C++ 6.0 SE - added all c and h files into the project - tried to build Doom.exe, but failed due to an error: C:\C++\sdldoom-1.10\i_net.c(54) : fatal error C1189: #error : You should hack this file... Error executing cl.exe. Doom.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)And I have cl.exe in my file system and all the directories to include files, library files and executable files in MS C++ 6.0 SE's Options are set right. In one of these directories I have cl.exe. I even tried to run it, and there were no problems. I can't solve this one out. It's the only thing that has been in my way compiling Doom.exe

    This Just In, Doom Movie Is Terrible

    The movie´s name could´ve been Resident Evil-Clone. I´m so angry because they put The Rock (a.k.a. Dwight Johnson) in the movie, and why did they leave the Hell out of the movie? Doom is based on Hell. Hell is the spine of Doom. Virus and disease-crap, huh? I´ve seen Resident Evil, why does there have to be another that kind of movie? Yeah, and also Land Of The Dead is this kind of movie. Doom-movie´s glory would´ve come out if there was Hell. But no can do anymore, the accident has already happened.

    Doom Wallpaper

    This was my first photomanipulation, if it can be called like that :) OK, I take your advice and try to make it look better. Thanks, Nmn, for the invitation.

    Doom Wallpaper

    Hi! This is my first post. I searched the forum, but there were no international threads for wallpapers, only some individual threads. Moderators can lock this thread or remove it, if they feel like it. So, I´ve made three wallpapers with Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7. Tell me what do you think of them? Wallpaper 1 Wallpaper 2 Wallpaper 3.
