    Is Freedoom heating up?

    Thanks! I'll take a look at that...

    Cacowards 2019 Mentionation Thread

    And this thread just so happens to be the next thing I click on on this forum after I discover D4V: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/108725-doom-4-vanilla-dehacked-project/

    DOOM 4 VANILLA - v1.2 RELEASED: Faster weapons

    This is by far the best D4 to D adaptation I've seen. And it's all done in what!!!?!? :O :O :O

    Is Freedoom heating up?

    What would add to this topic, though, is if someone could post a step by step tutorial on how to log onto the IRC channel, and recommend a good free client for it. (My last attempt to get onto the IRC channel left me completely stymied at the Wikipedia list of clients, leaving me going back to Pidgin and getting that same "no data was found" error again until I gave up.)

    Is Freedoom heating up?

    I'm willing to give IRC another try, the problem seems primarily to be that a lot of unsophisticated users these days will have no idea how to use it. A comprehensible step-by-step as to how to get onto the Freedoom IRC channel linked on the homepage (instead of the current direct link to the URL) would help a lot of people get past this barrier. At this point the benefit of adding Discord seems to be purely speculative right now. After all, everyone responding here obviously already has access to the forum, while I've never seen anyone on Discord ask where to discuss Freedoom. Meanwhile about 90% of the "servers" guilds I've joined on that thing I never check.

    Is Freedoom heating up?

    As someone who's got a Discord background tab right now and is now looking for the Pidgin button to figure out how to get onto the IRC (and re-learn how IRC even works), I will second that it could potentially help accessibility, however much I'd rather the Freedoom project not be dependent on a proprietary discussion channel. That said, here's how I'm logging onto the IRC: Starting Pidgin Deleting old Discord stuff Going into Manage Accounts... and hitting Add Account, selecting IRC Search {freedoom irc} on DuckDuckGo, end up on Freedoom home page Click on the "Talk on IRC", learn that a thing called Mibbit exists Try using that See a tab titled "OFTC banned Mibbit (dead)" Go back to the Freedoom page, go to choose other application Try to figure out where Pidgin.exe is stored (C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin), hit OK Watch it do nothing at all Hover over the link and manually type "irc://irc.oftc.net/", cut into clipboard, go back to Pidgin's interface Type in a name, leave password blank assuming I'm not actually supposed to create an account "Unable to connect: Error resolving irc://irc.oftc.net/: The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found." ...so uh here I am on the forum and the git

    Any Dsflame Ideas?

    Anyone going anywhere where there might be a campfire and able to bring a microphone with them? That seems to be the most straightforward way to get some resources going...

    Do you mean this? It's the only PR I can find searching for "fix-map-names" and it looks like it's been merged.

    Phase 2 "Episode" name?

    If you launch Freedoom Phase 2 in GZDoom with a MAPINFO lump that defines additional episodes, the IWAD "episode" for playing the core Freedoom levels is titled "Hell On Earth" as though it were Doom 2. Is there an actual name that should be used instead?

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    I should've guessed it was a 64/32 thing. It works, thanks! EDIT: How do you start a new map? The new/open menu options don't seem to work.

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    How'd you compile it (and figure out where the FLTK libraries are)? EDIT: Right, /usr/lib. So what should be in place of obj_linux? EDIT2: Nevermind, that wasn't the problem, it's whatever sort of problem would spit out this: EDIT3 so I don't take up like half of all the replies on this thread: Tried boris's replacement below, same result.

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    Thanks for the help. Says Eureka is -rwxr-xr-x Running both "getenforce" and "selinuxenabled && echo enabled || echo disabled" gives me a command-not-found error so I assume I'm not running SELinux. Compiled and installed zlib. Same as before. And here's the .out file with my username replaced (I don't think having a number in the username would make a difference?):23:54:54 execve("./Eureka", ["./Eureka"], ["ORBIT_SOCKETDIR=/tmp/orbit-usern"..., "SSH_AGENT_PID=1579", "TERM=xterm", "SHELL=/bin/bash", "XDG_SESSION_COOKIE=7b6462a4890ba"..., "WINDOWID=48234499", "GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL=/tmp/keyri"..., "GTK_MODULES=canberra-gtk-module", "USER=username", "LS_COLORS=rs=0:di=01;34:ln=01;36"..., "SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-nFcYXA154"..., "MAIL=/var/mail/username", "PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bi"..., "PWD=/home/username/downloads/eur"..., "LANG=en_CA.UTF-8", "GNOME_KEYRING_PID=1546", "SHLVL=1", "HOME=/home/username", "LANGUAGE=en_CA:en", "LOGNAME=username", "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:ab"..., "LESSOPEN=| /usr/bin/lesspipe %s", "DISPLAY=:0.0", "LESSCLOSE=/usr/bin/lesspipe %s %"..., "COLORTERM=gnome-terminal", "XAUTHORITY=/home/username/.Xauth"..., "_=/usr/bin/strace"]) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) 23:54:54 dup(2) = 3 23:54:54 fcntl(3, F_GETFL) = 0x8002 (flags O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE) 23:54:54 fstat(3, {st_dev=makedev(0, 10), st_ino=3, st_mode=S_IFCHR|0620, st_nlink=1, st_uid=1000, st_gid=5, st_blksize=1024, st_blocks=0, st_rdev=makedev(136, 0), st_atime=2012/07/14-23:54:54, st_mtime=2012/07/14-23:54:54, st_ctime=2012/07/14-23:52:09}) = 0 23:54:54 mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7f0801ab9000 23:54:54 lseek(3, 0, SEEK_CUR) = -1 ESPIPE (Illegal seek) 23:54:54 write(3, "strace: exec: No such file or di"..., 40) = 40 23:54:54 close(3) = 0 23:54:54 munmap(0x7f0801ab9000, 4096) = 0 23:54:54 exit_group(1) = ?

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    After scrolling through hundreds of vaguely similar-looking entries in Synaptic for each of those after libX* I think this is the point where my brain shuts off, I have to consciously stop myself from asking if there's just a Windows binary version of this that just plain runs, and see if I can run EdMap in DOSBox. EDIT: Squinting at a tiny screen in a very slow shell at a badly outdated program with very little functionality was a bit more prohibitively stressful than I thought.

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    Result: then the file goes to 10 lines compared to your 400+. My line 1 ends with this after the first close parenthesis: However, if I try the same thing while deliberately typoing "./Eureka" the error is "strace: ./Eurekaa: command not found" so that seems to be something.

    Eureka: a Linux map editor

    #! 10 "Statler" running 3.2.0-bpo.2-amd64 Last dist-upgrade I think was back in late April. The first set of steps looks equivalent to what I first tried to do. But wouldn't I be getting some kind of error message about missing libraries if missing libraries was the problem, rather than an error that I would only expect to get if the file wasn't there at all?
