    My Brainstorm

    Just wanted to post this here because I thought it'll be a waste to let it sit in the bottom of My Documents. Take what you want out of it, and if you don't like it please just let the thread die instead of killing it, ideas could sound stupid but at least it's on topic and it's not attempting to be spam. My notes: Going with the interpertation of Hell being the Marine's self inflicted punishment, the whole plot is a few chapters that go back and forth between the Marine's past and present battle through E1-E3. The reason why he goes through all that trouble is because he feels guilty about the soldiers he lost in a war he fought when he was younger, which he thinks was by cowardice, and he wants to save the soldiers that went off first into the base, where the Hell he goes through represents that guilt and punishment built inside him. At the end, he ends up at the gates of Dis, ready to be slaughtered by the demons in the city, until he is sent out of Hell by Heaven, a metaphor for his relief of guilt as he believes he did everything he could of done to of saved the soldiers, where he is now out of the physical Hell and his own personal Hell. Edit to notes: Made it clearer in case people didn't read the brain storm. Edit 2: Something got messed up in Copy+Paste. Here's the brain storm: --------------------------- Hell- Resembles his inner guilt and anger towards himself and his past. Plot: A man overcome with guilt and self-hatred fights the forces of hell to save humanity, and resolve his guilt. Plot: Prologue: Doom guy has a dream, revealing he fought a brutal war 10 years ago on Earth. We see him lose many of his men in a battle, and see after the battle the brutal slaughter of civilians, prisoners, and innocents by his own men in an act of rage and madness. He is still young in war and overcame with shock and fear he simply sits as chaos brews. Chapter 1: He wakes up and is told that he arrived. It is revealed that he is now an elite and respected soldier, and that he is to serve as an escort for a Senator as a protest goes on. Earth is in a state of political chaos as poverty, corruption, crime, etc is rampaging the world. The protestors are demanding for the government to stop research on Mars and to reveal more about what is happening. The Civilians get closer and louder, and he is ordered by his superior officer, one of the men that killed the civilians and prisoners in the war, orders them to kill the unarmed civilians. When he refuses the officer ignores him and begins to order the others to kill them, as the officer is about to fire, the Doom guy stops him and kills him in the struggle. Chapter 2: Doom guy is revealed to of been transferred to Mars as the government doesn’t want the news to get out that soldiers were about to fire on civilians and quietly sends the Doom guy off to Mars where he won’t be able to tell the truth. He is introduced to new characters. Chapters 3-? The chaos unfolds, and the plot consists of suspenseful moments, gory action scenes, and flashbacks that reveal more about the character, and why he is going through hell, to resolve his inner anger and guilt. In the end it is revealed that the reason he didn’t just stay at E1M1 was because he thought there were still soldiers alive, and he couldn’t bear to leave any soldiers behind, no matter how obvious it was that they were all dead. At the end, he is relieved that he did everything he could, and proved that he wasn’t a coward and fought for a good purpose. At the gates of Dis after he defeats the boss, he is (Not directly told, assumed to be Heaven’s work) greeted by a portal that allows him to get out, preferably back to Earth and not to E4. In the end he gets back to Earth where he’ll continue his own personal crusade. Character: Based off: Rick Rescorla Name: Born: 2109 Entered War: 2123 (22) Now: 2145 (36) Traits: Fearless, as his experience in the war has made him fearless and made him sure not to stop doing the right thing for fear. Tough, the war made him tough, and he will take pain to prevent the pain of others. Development: Through retrospect and shows his resolve over his guilt after he did everything he could of done. Past: Look at Prologue. ----------------------------------------------

    Newbie ZDoom Question

    Is the exe the folder? I already dragged it in like the normal Doom, but I also need the normal Doom's IWAD, and when I load the game and the level, it dosen't start.

    Newbie ZDoom Question

    How do you play WADS on ZDoom? IDK how since I don't get the menu launcher screen anymore like in the normal game.
  4. I think it'll be preaty cool if at the start of the battle between you and the boss, that eventually the floors will start to sink one by one so you'll have less room to maneuver. The boss could be like the 3 headed monster that the Divine Comedy described Satan as... Each head having a different attack representing the 3 things they represent. The basic challenge is dodging everything and trying to land a shot. You can add a weapon that appears only on the boss level, and say that to actually harm the actual soul of the boss, you have to use this artifact or something. You can change the weapon however you want to fit the special strategy and gameplay. ...or you can just make one tough ass monster that has deadly attacks and looks cool as hell... not much you can do really... *Edit: What about the Commander guy you were supposed to kill in the begining? You can say he's gone to hell and he's there to confront you. He can have weapons like the marine does.

    Was the Doom movie good?

    I think it wasn't really a Doom movie, it was just a movie with the name Doom. I didn't think it wasn't that bad if you looked at it as different movie.

    Finally, I finished the original 3 episodes =) Should I try Thy Flesh Consumed, or should I play Doom II?
  7. I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but where do you think the doom guy will go when he dies? Heaven or Hell? I like to think that he'll go to heaven, but then Hell will finally over take Earth and begin it's assault on heaven. So the Doom Guy's soul is given a body and he's gets the weapons he demands, and goes down to hell to seal Hell and finish off the Devil. Or hell he might just go to hell and take the throne for himself.

    I have a new question the BFG, what situations and monsters is right to use it on? How much ammo should I reserve for it?

    I've never been so scared before. I'm in love with this game now! I just got to E2M8, where I heard that I'll face the Cyber Demon. I'm going to take a break (Or rather, I have to) now that I saved it. I was wondering if you guys have any tips on taking on this level and the cyberdemon.

    Thanks for all the tips so far, I'm going to go back and try my luck again.

    I hope this is the right place to ask this. I just bought the Collector's Edition to pass by some time. I played the shareware in UV, and when I played the Second Level, I think it's a LOT harder. Maybe because it's been a while I've played the shareware version, maybe because I need to adjust to the new monsters, traps, and levels. Whatever the case, I'll end up dying constantly, and having to play through the same level over and over, until I get to the end, barely with any ammo and any health, then trying to repeat the process for the next level. So my biggest problem is: Ammo. I've ran out of ammo constantly, especially after wasting them over Imps, Cacodemons, and Barons of Hell. Am I supposed to try to kill as little and try to conserve my ammo, or do I need to look for ammo first before I try to take on the horde of monsters? And if you're running out of ammo or health, what should you do? Any other strategies or tricks you guys know will be nice.
