    Do you consider mouselook as a cheat?

    I mean, isn't autoaim kind of a cheat more than mouselook? lol

    Patching IWADs these days

    Gives me a "file not found" error. Not sure what file it's looking for. EDIT: The patcher @Andromeda linked seems to work just fine so this is no longer an issue, but it's just curious that the utility that Chocolate Doom directly points me to doesn't seem to work as intended.

    Fireblu2 is the better fireblu texture.

    ♫ Fire...blu...3, tho ♫ To the tune of "Despacito"

    Patching IWADs these days

    Someone has graciously provided me a fresh copy of 1.9 DOOM.WAD, but just out of curiosity, how did you accomplish this? I just gave it a run but I couldn't quite complete the process. I installed DOSBox to my desktop to avoid user permission problems, then put 12_19drp.exe and doom.wad in the DOSBox directory. I then ran the following commands: mount D C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\DOSBOX~1.74- D: 12_19DRP.EXE This gave me the following files: PSHELL.TXT PATCH.RTP PATCH.EXE PSHELL.EXE PSHELL.CFG I then ran: PATCH.EXE doom.wad Which gave me the following error: Could not find the Patch File 'DOOM.RTP' I then attempted to rename PATCH.RTP to DOOM.RTP, which then told me: error ept0015: Old File does not exist Little stumped!

    Patching IWADs these days

    I just thought I'd give Chocolate Doom a shot, seemed fun. However, it won't run my version of doom.wad which apparently is 1.2. I set about looking for a WAD patcher but Ladopato gives me a "file not found" error when I try to select the WAD file (runtime error 53, possibly Visual Basic related?), an IWAD converter located here doesn't convert pre-1.9 WADs, and the utility that Chocolate Doom points me to (located here) seems to be a 16-bit application I think? Either way it won't run on Windows 10. Help?

    Doom 64 - how to play it?

    Then why did Nightdive add free mouselook to both Turok ports (to quite fine effect, I might add) instead of giving us a clunky look-up/look-down button scheme? Because that would be dumb. It would've been dumb in 1998. Mouselook is as integral a quality-of-life improvement as increased resolution/framerate, unless we should be playing this at 320x240 and 30FPS. And yes, I missed autorun in the bindings somehow.

    How would you rate Doom 64 mapset against vanilla ones?

    Oh shewt, this guy. Heck yeah I'm a Doomer, Doom 64 is top-5 favorite games material for me. Peep me on ZDaemon every now and again too, although if I play another round of Chillax I'm going to lose my shit.

    I think they're fantastic. There's all kinds of nuggets of genius throughout the game that, for its time, were super creative. The pit of spectres in Alpha Quadrant, the former human crossfire room on The Terraformer, the entirety of Dark Citadel which is my favorite Doom map ever, the frenetic action on Watch Your Step, fighting across the eerie infinity of In The Void, so on and so forth. I think the secrets are pretty creative sometimes as well, the way to unlock the invulnerability and megasphere powerups on Watch Your Step is definitely unique.

    Doom 64 - how to play it?

    Now that I can finally log on to Doomworld again Doom 64 EX still works fine for me, I know some other people have had problems with Windows 10, and technically it's the premier way to play Doom 64 on the PC since it actually utilizes the N64 ROM (for example, Hell Knights and Barons of Hell will actually fight each other). Retribution seems to have pretty much nailed it as well (don't know if it uses Doom2.wad or the N64 ROM as a base) as I can't really find any appreciable difference between the two. GZDoom as a base has some nice interpolation options that make the older textures look much better, plus the usual flash and flair, and Vulkan support. Doom 64: Absolution contains extra assets that Nevander hasn't yet ported over to Retribution, but unfortunately it's not very playable as it uses an ancient version of the Doomsday engine. For example, if you try to set your resolution as 1920x1080, you are forced into a garbage FOV that you can't change. The aspect ratio is also kind of borked for some reason, and there are also some problems with hit detection. Not recommended. Brutal Doom 64 looks/sounds amazing (the ghosting sprites for the Nightmare Imp and Spectre in particular), but obviously is a refreshed experience rather than the original. You can choose between "classic" and "tactical" mode, which basically means normal Doom gameplay vs. the Brutal Doom changes like reloading, melees, and an assault rifle instead of a pistol, that sort of thing. If you want something fancy, this is it. Honestly though, I would go buy the official port as a token of respect to Kaiser who is responsible for both Absolution and Doom 64 EX. I haven't bought it myself yet so I don't know how it plays or what its feature set is, but if Kaiser worked on it, by default it's going to be good. EDIT: So I looked up some things about the official port. Having direct support for framerates higher than 60 is nice as is having a dedicated in-game FOV option. But I question some odd design choices like changing the sprite for medipacks, and also...no mouselook. lol That's kind of silly. There's also next to zero customization of the game experience, such as alternate difficulty options (like fast monsters), adding a crosshair or upscaling the sprites (including weapon sprites); anti-aliasing the environment is nice but I'm not really concerned with the smoothness of the lines on the floor. Also, no "always run" option, which is excruciating. This is a short step up from just playing the damn game on the N64.

    [v1.5] Doom 64: Retribution

    I noticed that in the config file, separate sections are dedicated to bindings for different GZDoom mods that are registered as IWADs. For example, the P.T. mod and the Castlevania mod both appear as IWADs in the GZDoom launcher and they have their own sections in the config file, [GZPT.whatever] and [SimonDestiny.whatever]. There is a regular [Doom.Bindings] section and all the bindings there are intact (the back command is registered as "S=+back"), but there is no section for Doom 64 Retribution, presumably because it is treated as a PWAD. If it's worth anything, I'm starting D64:RTR through a special shortcut so I can activate fast monsters without playing the "hardcore" difficulty where the monsters respawn. The shortcut target field is as follows: D:\Doom\GZDoom\gzdoom.exe -fast -file D64RTR[v1.5].WAD EDIT: FYI, this problem also occurs in OUT03 - CONTROL during the switch puzzle that you have to check through the camera.

    [v1.5] Doom 64: Retribution

    Any idea what the bind was? I'm looking over the GZDoom config file and I can't find anything relevant, and I've literally pressed every key on my keyboard to no avail. F12 (spynext) takes me out of view of the camera but I'm frozen in place and can't move/aim.

    [v1.5] Doom 64: Retribution

    Ran into a little snag on the Crisis map in the Absolution Levels, when I activate the camera to watch the Demon Key travel along the conveyor belt, I seemingly can't get out of the camera view, no matter what button I press. Don't remember this being an issue previously, am using the current releases of Retribution and GZDoom. @Nevander

    What is something about doom that you absolutely hate?

    Getting shot by former humans before the fucking door even opens halfway
