    What's your opinion on **********?

    How is it not being a warez site a con? And some warez kids hatemailing simply because it's not a warez site when they're looking for a warez site, how is that a con?

    Doom featured in Family Guy

    http://www.joystiq.com/entry/1234000480067301 If you read the article, Dan Povenmire says this footage came from SNES Doom, and that he spent weeks acuiring the console and the game, and setting it up. Obviously, he is full of shit, that's not SNES Doom. But why make up some story about it? To be cool?

    Never smoked in my life. Yeah, I don't really care what smokers want to do to themselves, why should I? People who feel they can just smoke wherever they want next to whoever they want piss me off badly though. I was at my little 5 year old niece's birthday the other day, and there were some little friends of hers and their parents. I walk in there and I see the children playing in a mist of cigarette smoke, the fucking redneck parents just keep on chatting and lighting up new ones. And they always do this. It's like they don't even think about it, as if they think hey, it's my fucking smoke and it's my right, don't you dare tell me what to do. And I'd want to just kick all their fucking teeth in. Both my niece and her brother have lung problems. Don't try to talk to the smokers about it though, oh no, you'll be told off in that special way that smokers can. Yeah, I don't give a fuck if they keep it to themselves but unfortunately that's a rare thing.

    SNES Doom mod

    If you just enable Double Horizontal detail mode at 320x240, and then reduce the screen size a bit, it looks absolutely perfect IMO. Most of the weird pixeledishness in SNESDoom came from them using double horizontal at a low resolution anyway, so that would be the best way to emulate it.

    SNES Doom mod

    Oh, yes I have Doom's gamma set to 1.2. Mostly because, lately everybody seems to think just because Doom 3 is pitch black means they should make their wads dark as shit too...or something. You also didn't answer my question. :p

    SNES Doom mod

    ruffj05: you do realise the SNES Doom is level wise pretty much the same as the PC Doom right? There is really no other point to playing this mod than to relive the old SNES graphics, the game is the same. That's why Mancubus said playing in ZdoomGL defeats the point of it. But anyways... It's great that you guys are doing this, but unfortunately you're grossly underestimating the capabilities of the poor old SNES. :p I notice that you decreased the resolution of the textures and sprites in your mod, while in the actual game, the resolution was left as it was on the PC. Here are some comparison screens to prove it, on top are screenshots from your mod, below are screens from the actual SNES game: Mod imp SNES imp Mod door SNES door Mod exit door SNES exit door Mod switch SNES switch Pretty good for that old 16 bit console huh? :p Its secrets lie in a lot of texture/sprite mirrorring (as seen clearly in that exit door screenshot, and any object sprites that were reasonably symmetrical to begin with, like pillars, are made of two mirrored halves), and I believe some decrease in color depth, but I'm not sure about that last one.

    SNES Doom in Doom?

    I've heard someone mention a project that tried to recreate the SNES Doom differences in a regular old Doom wad, but I've searched the idgames archive and I can't seem to come up with anything. Any info? Similarly, are there wads that attempt to recreate any other console versions (besides Doom64)?

    It is done =D

    True, true. Even though an experienced Halflife 2 mapper might raise an eyebrow at people on this website, they'll have to respect the fact that Doom is what we like and that we take its inherent quirks for granted. But shouldn't that go for sourceport mappers versus vanilla mappers too? I mean, saying that Suspended in Dusk is awesome for making vanilla Doom look like that doesn't make Action Doom any less impressive does it? And worshipping Action Doom for stretching the boundaries of what is possible in Doom, does that worsen the experience of any great Halflife 2 mods? I think any creation should be appreciated based on what it sets out to do. That's just me though. (edit: changed "Source" to "Halflife 2" to avoid confusion)

    It is done =D

    Some NES emulators add options and filters to enhance the game's graphics. But nobody makes NES games that don't comply with the specifications of the NES. See where I'm going? It's not the same of course, but it's not exactly nonsense either. But I don't mean to start some hateful argument, I'm seriously interested in what drives people. Personally, I see Doom mapping as a "game", with all the "rules" that go with it. If I want to do something more (and keep it simple, like Scuba said) I actually like the Build engine better (hmm...GZDoom doesn't happen to have per-surface light levels does it?). Though the last time I did anything with a comparatively modern engine was Unreal 1, and I actually found that pretty simple to work with. In fact, much simpler even than "fake" 3D engines when it comes to creating geometry that actually looks 3D (...duh) and lighting as well.

    It is done =D

    To be honest, if you're going to remove the limits of the original executable, then what's the point anymore? What's the point of not just mapping for a modern engine and be rid of limitations entirely? Imagine someone were to make a homebrewn NES game (which people do) and then proceeded to modify an open source emulator to be able to do things that weren't possible on the original NES. Same thing. You might as well just go full OpenGL in that case. What's the point? Just wondering.

    That reminds me of this: http://home.wanadoo.nl/blackmyst/cartoondoom.gif No, I have no idea where it came from, found it on 4chan one time.

    [Concept Map] The RPG Engine.

    For a moment there I thought those videos were actually your work in progress. "THAT is Doom?" Haha. What game are they from? It looks like a PSX game on an emulator or something. And it seems to be borrowing very heavily from FF7. Either way, yes, it does sound very interesting.

    "A Modest Video Game Proposal"

    Don't know if anybody posted this yet, but somebody made his game (or something similar to it) and now all of a sudden he was "just kidding": http://www.joystiq.com/entry/1234000743063662/ Hilarious. He's like a child losing an argument.

    Graphics Cards

    Apparently the Geforce 6600GT (not the regular 6600) eats Doom 3 for breakfast. It's not too expensive, and as far as I can see there's not all that much of a price difference between the 256 MB and the 128 MB version.

    Elfen Lied

    Oh I agree that Elfen Lied is great, I said I liked it a lot. I was just telling Technician that if Elfen Lied made him surprised that there are series out there that are more than just kid's cartoons, then he hasn't seen the tip of the iceberg. Didn't mean to argue with you. ;) Also, I wasn't aware that fansubs of unlicenced anime were considered copyright infringements as well. Guess that's sort of a grey area we shouldn't go near then. Sorry about that. Technician: Samurai Champloo was done by the same makers as Cowboy Bebop. It's pretty good.

    Elfen Lied

    Hmm, if that surprises you then I think you have a completely wrong idea of this whole industry. Pokemon and Yugioh aren't exactly considered standards, you know. If anything, I'd even consider Elfen Lied kind of childish and cliche, even if I do like it a lot. The animation wasn't particularly anything to write home about either, IMO. If you're really unfamiliar with anime, there's a whole lot of examples of series that transcend well above the level of Elfen Lied in terms of maturity and animation quality. Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo are two names that spring to mind immediately, probably because I'm a fan of those. But there are many that can even be as simple as a schoolgirls' everyday life, and still contain philosophy at depths that no western animation could ever dream of. Then there's stuff like FLCL, that simply goes over the top, yet has a very mature look and feel to it, and quite a complicated storyline if you dig deep enough. Oh, and I'll just say it again: Go watch Dead Leaves. It's only a 50 minute movie. It is insane. If you watch it, you will understand the insanity. That goes for everybody who reads this. ;) PS: http://link removed/ is a great site with a comprehensive list of all the new fansub releases that come out every day. Just do a search for the series you're looking for. Though it's not really suited if you're looking for older anime.

    "A Modest Video Game Proposal"

    Dude. He's not going to acknowledge you, he will have some kind of objection and won't donate the money. He himself has said that he wants a professionally produced game like GTA, a Doom wad will be insufficient in his eyes. I admire your efforts but you might as well quit while you're ahead. You'd be lying to yourself if you'd think he won't have some excuse not to consider your work valid. Or you could make the game, but not use Thompson's retarded script (use something better), and still donate the money you make to Child's Play. Just a friendly bit of advice.

    Elfen Lied

    HAHA oh, nice work by me. I thought the first poster meant he had read the official Elfen Lied manga. I sure know how to make myself look smart. Damn. Poor Nana.

    Elfen Lied

    If you've watched Elfen Lied, go read this little fan strip: http://manga.clone-army.org/nana.php?page=1&lang= It starts out humorous (and retains some black humor throughout the comic) but later on...well...just read it all. It really got to me. But yeah, anime is an industry as big and varied as Hollywood or the music industry. It's just as silly to say "I don't like anime" as it is to say "I don't like movies" or "I don't like music", for obvious reasons. I'm sure there will be a lot of people mentioning all the good stuff so I'll just name one that's pretty obscure: Dead Leaves. It's a 50 minute movie, by the same makers as FLCL, only approximately five times as over-the-top. Yes, I know you think that's not even possible, but believe me it is. If you're looking for some of the extremes that the anime industry has to offer, go watch Dead Leaves. Oh, and just so you know, the cast consists only of deformed mutants. One of them has a rock drill for a dick. No schoolgirls or spikey-haired emo teens here. Go watch Dead Leaves.

    Do you ever play on Nightmare?

    Just wondering if anybody ever plays Nightmare mode seriously (other than for the hell of it, like "lol dude I'm getting pwned so much"), since I seem to notice UV being the standard for most people.
