  1. Ralph and I cooped this a few nights ago and had the following two problems in E1M8: 1. You know that section of floor that collapses into lava? The one located near the lift that takes you to the first of your final battles. The coop respawn point is located just before the aforementioned lava pit hallway and it's extremely difficult and frustrating to get across once it's collapsed. We had to lower the gravity to stop dying so much. I dont know if you would consider this a bug necessarily but I think it should be looked into. 2. It's possible for those two "mega-barons" (I cant remember their names) that you fight before the real last boss to follow you all the way back to the lava hallway that I mentioned in my first point.
  2. It's a song by deathz0r called "Supar Doom 2 Doom Mix!"
  3. Hmm I think it's just e1m1 that ends up ruining things for a lot of people. It's a pretty ugly map and not fun to play. This is unfortunate since the rest of the wad looks much better. Like others have mentioned, E1M1 is this big mish mosh of textures in every room. This makes rooms look indistinct and is hard on the eyes. I was also put off by the coronas on light sources, particularly the orange ones. They just didnt look right in the available palette. The team's treatment of E1M8 was very nice.
  4. Like BS said, it's possible that some kind of keyboard combo is causing the display rotation. If you have an ATI card or integrated chip, this process is handled by a service called the "ATi hotkey poller". If you dont normally use keyboard combos to adjust your screen settings then you can try disabling this service to see if it fixes the problem by going to start > run > services.msc. Look for Ati hotkey poller in the list, select it, go to its properties and change the startup type to "manual". You can set it back to "automatic" if you decide you ever regularly need this service. Nvidia drivers also have a hotkey menu somewhere but I dont know enough about disabling it.
  5. Talk about trolling.
  6. This might sound really silly but is your left mouse button not assigned as the fire key? Did you accidentally bind it to something else?
  7. ctrl+left/right
  8. You could do an image>adjustments>replace color to get rid of large areas quickly. You could also just set image interpolation to nearest neighbor, which is what I think blackfish did. Or try bicubic sharper for a little less of "outlining". Edit: Wait what's wrong with resizing them after converting to indexed color? I believe this still uses the nearest neighbor method but at least it's "safe".
  9. MGS has a superior story and characters. It's generally fleshed out much better. However I had more plain old fun with SC1 and 2. There's more variety and I prefer the way the whole stealth thing is handled in that one. Never played chaos theory.
  10. Just found out my father died on sunday, at the age of 50.

    Thing is, I dunno how I feel about. We were never really close. Hell we lived on opposite sides of the country. Only spoke every couple of months, and that didnt even start happening until a few years ago.

    On one hand I know this means I'll never get to know him very well and I guess I do feel bad about that. But on the other hand it's just kinda like "oh well". I do regret never having traveled to visit him.

    Mostly I feel bad about not feeling as bad as I think I should, if that makes any sense.

      This is pretty much how I felt when my great grandparents passed away, both in the last year, so I know what you mean. Obviously not the same thing in closeness, but then again my relationship with a lot of my family has been what you described you and your dad's relationship being :/

      If you aren't very close, your period of mourning may lie dormant for a while. At some point trigger memories may have an effect.

      Don't feel bad about not feeling bad Ass. It doesn't make you a worse person or anything.

      Feelings like yours are hard to reconcile with. With reflection, you'll come to an understanding with yourself.

      Despite his title, that's one post from Hobbs you don't have to ignore.

  11. How would bullets be defined? Will this allow more than one alt per slot?
  12. It's almost as hilarious as making Microsoft Bob say naughty things.
  13. Aye, I've had that before. I woke up in the middle of the night, unable to move, and there was some malicious person standing on my chest. Freaky as hell. However after some reading I found out this is not uncommon at all.
  14. First time I was not quite right was when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I had a very high fever that caused me to start hallucinating. I only remember it very vaguely. I remember being in the bathroom and attempting to put batteries in my (illusory) mom's back as if she were an electronic toy. My actual mom walked in on this and freaked out, threw me under a cold shower and then took me to the hospital. I think I also saw things like gremlins (from the movies) in my closet. I missed a highly anticipated episode of ducktales because of that fever.
  15. Yes, it wont ask you for the original doom3 disc during installation. In fact I just tested now with a copy of doom3 patched to version 1.3
