      Electro Rage

      I feel old and I wasn't even playing doom when it came out

    3. Clippy


      It's amazing, it rocks and sometimes I just listen it just because

    4. Biodegradable


      Like a fine wine, Jimbo. You're downright vintage now. ;^)

  2. Cool, I'm being evicted. I have 2 months to get a game plan together in finding a new place.


    So here's where I put a whole bunch of links to places you can support and help me, and you click on them or whathaveyou.

      Two months is the legal limit in the UK, he can't force you out any sooner than that. I used to rent out a few places some years ago so I have a bit of landlord experience. If he does try anything funny like saying you need to get out earlier or any other fishy business feel free to get in touch for any advice etc....


      Hope all goes well though Jimmy in finding a new place. 

    3. WH-Wilou84


      Hang in there and hang in tight Jimmy.

    4. Chopkinsca


      Damn, being evicted sucks. Moving is a pain in the ass at the best of times. Good luck finding a place and do keep us updated

  3. Just one shy of a full megawad of years, now.



  4. The Joy of Mapping project is currently sleeping, but the Discord associated with it is still alive and kicking. It's recently had a renovation and rebranding so if you're looking for a place in this community to get started with mapping, modding, or music-making, look no further!





  5. I have graduated to Old Man. Happy 30th to me. 🎂



    In case you missed it, my mapset JENESIS (in its final release form) turned 10 years old as of two days ago - my first foray into Doom single-player mapping and a turning point in my Doom mapping career.


    ...I really missed an opportunity to put out a 10th anniversary edition and call it "Tenesis", didn't I.


    Maybe for the 15th anniversary then. I could call it "JENES15"... no. Bad Jimmy.



    Here's to another 30 years of... me being alive, most likely!



  6. My brand new website is LIVE.



    This snazzy new look and feel for the site is courtesy of the supremely talented @Dragonfly.


    Note: Update your bookmarks! The URL now contains https and www.

      I AM THOR

      I think I have a good guess on what this is.



      It seems like a nod to how Romero teased Sigil. And I also remember that you posted a thread about a Sigil-lilke wad that you were working on. I think this is related to that.


      Of course there is a chance I could be wrong and you are just playing with our minds.

  8. 10 years ago today I embarked on a crazy mission, to create a Doom 2 megawad all by myself.


    Took me the following 13 months of on-off development, but turned out pretty good in the end!



    1. esselfortium




      And you've done so many other amazing things in those 10 years, too!

    2. Endless


      And now, when the name ''Jimmy'' is whispered, everyone smiles and nods. Truly the Bob Ross of Doom <3

    3. Phobus


      It's a hell of an achievement. Just think, though, you've made another three or so since then! Plus loads of other maps, ran projects, made tons of MIDIs. You're the productive guy that the rest of us can look up to. Keep being awesome, Jimmy!

  9. Doomers playing on the Bethesda.net port, check out your Add-Ons page - Deathless has been included as DLC for Ultimate Doom!


    Hope you enjoy!

      Thanks all!


      And SM, the limit has been 12 symbols for a little while now.

    3. esselfortium


      Congrats Jimmy!

    4. Chip


      Great Job Jimmy! I love the WAD! I played it twice!

  10. Just letting you guys know that if my jobs shut down due to COVID, you are getting another Jimmy megawad.

    1. Breezeep


      Don't burn yourself out!

    2. ReaperAA


      I love your wads (especially Faithless and Deathless) and I hope to see more wads. I am excited about the sequels to Faithless that you are working on.


      BUT I wish you don't lose your job.  Jimmy's well-being is more important than a Jimmy megawad.

  11. I have a Patreon now. Support me!


    I’m going to become a regular content creator and try to do twice-weekly streams during which I compose music for various projects. A rolling payment of just a few dollars a month will get you access to my Discord channel and lots of cool content as I make it.


    Hope to see you there!

  12. https://ko-fi.com/jamespaddockmusic


    Money's a big stress for me at the moment, so if you wanna treat me to the odd coffee every now and then, it'd be immensely appreciated. Much love, Doomworld.

  13. It's really happening.

      I do believe that this is not an april fool's joke. :D

      This is now for real, now waiting for Episode 3, and more "Wool Ball" games from MSPaintR0cks (aka WhatDatoast). :3

  14. @Baratus and I entered into the Global Game Jam (GGJ) ’18 with a game of our own that we managed to put together in about 48 hours. It’s a short puzzle-platformer made on the GZDoom engine with harsh abstract visuals, called nu//void (pronounced “null-void”).



    Download link at the very bottom.





    You have only one “weapon” – click your mouse to switch the lights "on" and "off" with a snap of your fingers. This will invert the colors black and white in the game world, exposing hidden doors, switches and platforms that you will need to find to progress.


    Find your way through the labyrinth, and collect the three artefacts, before making your way to the exit door.


    Oh yeah, and keep an eye (and ear) out – for the phantom.

      Why? It's uh... already a thing that... exists on its own?

    3. DooM_RO


      It was just an idea. Doom already had secret Wolf3D levels in it.


      Anyway, I really liked the idea! The platforming could use a bit of work though. The part where you have to turn on/off midflight was awkward.


      I hope you make a full game out of this.

    4. Jimmy



      It was just an idea. Doom already had secret Wolf3D levels in it.


      Sure, but this game has a vastly different set of core mechanics - it's not run around and shoot things, it's carefully using your only weapon to change the geometry, unlock secrets, etc. It'd be really out of place in Square.


      The simplistic visuals aren't necessarily part of it because we deliberately chose to go for another "cartoony" aesthetic like Square's, it's just that we had less than about 2 days to put the whole thing together, so we kind of had to resort to using simple solid colors (that said, other games we saw made for this jam had some very lovingly crafted art assets which were very impressive for a development time of less than 2 days).



      I hope you make a full game out of this.


      Undecided as to whether there'll be more. Ben will need to be on board with that as well. I'm sure there could be more, given proper time to flesh out the central concept a bit - but honestly I'm happy with this being the full game.

  15. Sorry in advance for this post, friends... shit's heavy. Feel free to skip.




    My custom title is looking more inappropriate by the day. I just can't cope right now. What's the point of anything anymore.


    Since she left us, I've just been dithering around helplessly like a zombie, unable to find joy in almost anything. I go to bed with a heart that feels ready to collapse, and wake up with a bottomless pit in my stomach that food doesn't fill. Recently I thought I was rounding a corner, but a 2.5 hour conversation with my dad just now proved that I have absolutely no battle plan here, in any respect. The fault is entirely mine.


    There are so many more problems in my life rearing their heads right now than just the grief I'm going through. Having outlined them here, these are problems that for the most part still persist to this day - nearly a year after that post was made - and that's kind of just the starting point of it all.


    I've been terribly nonchalant about my lifestyle, and it is now biting me in the back hard. I know things could be much worse - don't even go there. I recognise that I've been privileged enough for my family to have helped me do nearly everything, but at this point they can't give much more. On my own, I'm a practically useless individual. No life skills whatsoever. If there's something worse than not having a family, it's having one but feeling completely fucking unable to help them in any capacity. And I've been casually cruising along, ignoring this for so long, that I've just hit an inevitable dead end - and now realise that I've forgotten how to drive. Any possible way out just seems deathly inaccessible.

    • I've been ambitiously creative my whole life, but now that attitude seems all but gone. Music doesn't come to me as easily anymore - I think that last 30in30 project I did bled me dry - and that was 2 fucking years ago, now. Plus the market is saturated and intimidating, if the last 4 years of uni have taught me anything - that and the local music scene sucks over here. (It really feels like there's no hope for me in Western Australia, tbh. I'm miles away from anything and everyone I care about and that includes Australians.)
    • Graphic design is something I guess I could do as a fallback but I don't have any professional tools and frankly cannot do anything photo-manipulation-oriented, which at a guess is where the real money is.
    • Game development - i.e. continuing to work painstakingly on Square E2 and E3 - would seem to be my only option, but it'll drive me further into a hermit-like lifestyle and over-reliance on my family for food and shelter. And I'm not really in the best state to be doing anything creative right now, anyway. And it won't pay me, or anyone else.
    • I actually still can't drive. Can't afford lessons right now, anyway.

    I feel like I've got nothing left. Having practically no money, very high social anxiety, and a hesitancy to pursue anything that might be the slightest bit risky, there's a multitude of seemingly insurmountable obstacles in my way... and I know I'm the only one who can overcome them, but now, my best friend and pretty much only point of sanity in this world is fucking dead. If she's not around to enjoy life, and the quagmire of my problems is the only thing that I'm left facing, then quite frankly, what's the use.


    Before anyone suggests it, yes, I'm going to a therapist, on the 18th, but again, what's the use. I can't pretend to want to cling on anymore.


    I'm not suicidal, I'd never take my own life, but I honestly feel like disappearing. The world just seems so loveless and superficial now, and I can't stand the stupid mess that I've let pile up around me. Again, it's all my fault.


    Just take me back to the womb, already, I want to start over.

      Thank you, Doomworld.


      I would reply to each and every one of you here, especially those who have PM'd me in light of this status, but the words are very hard to find right now. I appreciate every single word typed, though. I don't know if I was ever quite aware of the sheer amount of love this community is able to reciprocate. I do love you guys. There's so much talent and cooperation and dedication to the craft here. The Doom community is clearly an amazing place and an invaluable pillar of support.


      Life sucks hard right now, and my next step is still extremely unclear to me. I have a great many things I want to get out of life that I've deprived myself of for too long, and honestly, I also want to escape Australia as soon as humanly possible - maybe go to Finland or somewhere like it, some place with an actually good economy and more-than-decent education. It'd be on my terms entirely, with no family there to want to do everything for me.


      I also want (and very much need) a good steady job. Any kind of stable income. I also want a girlfriend, and truthfully I really deeply want a family of my own - any kind of meaningful companionship will give me a reason to get up in the morning and make something of my damn self, something a special someone provided me for five long years. It's becoming less and less ignorable as time goes on, and particularly the last couple years have felt very lonely... maybe a partner at this point will help me power through this. Or maybe it'll reinforce my sheer dependency on other people. I truly don't know what the future wants for me. Maybe I won't get one. It... hardly seems worth pursuing one if she never got one... ;_;


      Before I get choked up again, let me thank you all again. I've got to somehow clamber out of this pit that I've dug myself into, and that could take me fucking years, but... so be it. With the reassurance of a whole community behind me, maybe it won't be so hard. But clearly I need some hardship or I simply won't grow. It helps to get through it while knowing I'm not completely alone, though. You guys truly are allies, like the friends I never really had. So much love, guys. ;_;

      I've been humming music from Jenesis and Plutonia 2 in my head for days. I haven't even played it recently, it's just that good and makes me think about the good feelings when playing Doom.


      You may not realize you have an impact on all of us but you really do, even if it's subconcious and you don't actually get to see real evidence of it. If you gotta take a break for a little bit to focus on some real shit, thats what you gotta do. Give until it feels good, not until it hurts. People say that these really low bottoms need to exist because they make the greatness in life feel so much more significant. It's really bad now but when it gets better it's gonna be fuckin awesome. If you need some Jimmy time to cope with this, by all means, take it! We'll be here when you get back and we'll still think the best of you.

  16. Merry Christmas, all. Hug your sweethearts tight and love that they're there.


    Sweetheart, I love you ;_;

      Jimmy, we’re all family in this. We all have each other. I wish you a merry Christmas!

  17. Be sure to grab Skulldash: Expanded Edition once it drops (in 5 hours' time as of this status)! I have a community-tier map in it.


    It's a lot of fun to play (and to map for), and for nine years and a few months in the making, it's got the sheer amount of content you'd expect. Dragonfly's development streams on Twitch have demonstrated to me just how thorough and devoted he's been to getting it done and dusted for the agreed-upon deadline. A lot of heart and soul is in this project and it looks incredibly professional to boot (just look at that website!).


    I'm Jimmy and I hereby wholeheartedly endorse this project. 👍

      Is Metroid's gun part of his arm?

    3. Tristan


      Metroid doesn't have a gun, he only eats mushrooms that let him throw fireballs.. You're thinking of Sonic, who uses his his gun to freeze the ghosts that chase after him.

  19. These two little guys showed up at the house today.





    Thanks @glenzinho! :D

      According to this, all Doom barrels hate Doomguy. Was he a convicted barrel abuser?
