    The Top 100 Memorable Doom Maps of All Time

    okay that was honestly a really nice list. Quite a few releases I've not heard of in it, and I like how the concept is an evolution of the top 100 WADs without just being a rehash of that. a very nice thing to have for the 25th birthday

    Epic Games stops development of Unreal Tournament

    not that epic was ever really working on the latest Unreal Tournament... rip anyways.

    Who is your favorite character from any 90's FPS game?

    From what I recall regarding prisoner 849, the plan originally was to have you play a female character, but in practice the original release gave you character select before entering the game. dunno how but I somehow got it into my head that the "dante" skin was the default char for the longest time. I think the later releases which borrow the UT menu set the player character to a female by default. Translator messages that refer to the messiah are usually genderless, but there's one exception in Bluff Eversmoking where they refer to a "warrior princess" out of all the 90s fps games I personally love Duke. It probably doesn't help that as a kid I really didn't understand the "parody" aspect of him so I just kinda thought he was the coolest guy ever. heh.

    Why did GBA Doom include 'green' blood?

    so far as I can tell, the palette wasn't shifted, just the colors used in the images, they might have used a really crappy process to replace colors for the sprites. there are oddities that have arisen, like the pipe texture with leaking blood having a red stain at the bottom but a green fluid pumping out. heh...
  5. In theory if you wanted to be safe you could create a patch that fucks up a shareware release in the right way (was there ever a 1.2 shareware version? Hmm...). Executable distribution is a bit of a weird subject, in that it isn't strictly allowed by EULA, hence the use of DeHackEd patches instead of distributing modified executables, but at the same time id did freely distribute perfectly working Doom executables with the shareware releases.

    Making the mastermind a better monster

    I actually kind of like the idea of the thing being able to move and shoot, but that does seem like a minor implementation problem, since there's the whole problem of it facing away while shooting you while walking. I guess an idea would be to make it like a Wolfenstein 3D boss, where it moves for a it, shoots a salvo of many bullets, and then is able to move again. It would potentially look weird in certain setups, but I also feel it would help if the radius didn't incorporate the legs, which would give it a feel of stepping "around" things perhaps. While I think a magic attack could also be nice, and clearly id did too since they put at least a little work into it, I'm not fond of the idea that's thrown around of it freezing you. It seems like a fairly cheap instant kill since you'd be a sitting duck for the chaingun.

    Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

    that's a lot nicer than a lot of weather implementations i've seen in the past, it's really cool.

    I'm very concerned about doom eternal regarding the fallout 76 fiasco

    staggered release absolutely killed battlefield 5 (did you know that BF5 was released at all?), so while i have no hope in beth not doing something absolutely fucking stupid in publishing, I sure hope they don't do that. I really can't put any faith in bethesda anymore though, what a shame.

    What were the first videos you watched on Youtube?

    the earliest video I can remember is The Incredible Mouth Band, holy shit that was ancient. I remember also watching "is it a good idea to microwave this" for a while when that was a thing It's hard going back and watching this kinda stuff for me these days so no links, but they're all still up.

    'Wads of Wads' CD from 1994

    I remember Sgt. Shivers actually did up a sprite of the Wads of Wads guy a long time ago, I really want a mod at this point where you roll around the map in an office chair with an assault rifle.

    GBA DooM/DooM 2 map editor?

    Editing tools for the original GBA Doom do exist, and it's fully possible to make maps for it. Doom 2 GBA is tricker, but recently forum user Randy87 reverse engineered the map format and wrote a tool to extract all the game maps.

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    I didn't find most of the starcraft campaigns to be that difficult, though the later ones were pretty tricky. The last few missions of Brood War Zerg are pretty brutal if you aren't well versed in Starcraft though.

    Game Engine Black Book: Doom

    in his twitter replies fab remarked that google play doesn't let him upgrade the books like that. I have the wolf3d first edition on google play books and it wasn't upgraded. rip.
  15. 1am thoughts: isn't Fabien Sanglard's Doom Engine Black Book a realization of Bernd's failed dreams of writing a book describing the Doom engine? if only fab's book could come with a CD including the source code on it, then the illusion would be complete.


    the way times change is weird sometimes.
