    my doom miniatures i painted

    Both of those look very nice. Good work!

    That seems to be the correct download. The OP may have thought it was just an upgrade to Service Pack 1, but I think it's a full installation.

    Favorite Wad Ever?

    Wait, you don't appreciate action? Or do you only appreciate unhealthy doses?

    Favorite Wad Ever?

    Which, for your convenience steuntron, can be found on ZDoom's SourceForge Project Page. Though the problem really isn't difficult to fix by hand.

    The darkened fate of Karthik

    The original Dark Fate was a good map, so hopefully this will be nice. I also liked the commentary video he posted on YouTube.

    Aww...every time I play a newly released WAD that I think deserves consideration, I think to myself, "Hey, I hope someone remembers this WAD for the Cacowards!", but then I always just put it out of my mind with the confidence that good old Scuba Steve is keeping tally and will give it its deserts. Now I will actually have to keep note of the good WADs I play.

    Favorite Wad Ever?

    It is on /idgames, as with most other WADs.

    Possible Megawad Idea - Dark Plutonia

    I have to agree here. The pillar on the right does not fit in at all, and the ceiling looks pretty poor. The other shots are looking good though.

    Favorite Weapon on Doom/Doom2 ??

    I think I like the shotgun the best, but the berserk fist is also really high on my list. Of course, when I first started playing Doom when I was younger, I liked the BFG for its novelty.

    Arcane Doom

    I like Arcane Doom, Elegy, and Gehenna. Ultima, meaning last or the last syllable of a word, sounds like an arbitrary choice unless you're aiming for an association with the Ultima series.

    Deus Vult II: First Edition Released

    Wow, it is very nice to see a release! I've been waiting for this one. I played through the first couple maps and it's looking good so far. Great work! Edit: This has been in development for what, nearly four years now? I suppose this'll win the Mordeth Award this year, unless we get some surprise releases later on.

    Arcane Doom

    I really like Gehenna. It's simple, easy to say, and memorable, but this may not be the most appropriate WAD to use it on (though I can't say for sure without having played it). I do suggest following myk's advice, for the WAD's name will likely have a large effect on its popularity and longevity.

    New project

    I have to agree with the others. This is looking great!

    Dark7:Mission Pack (The Special Edition)

    Nice work! I liked Dark7 and its mission pack, so I think I'll enjoy seeing your revisions.

    Eternal demos [-complevel 2]

    The file on /idgames does give you eternal.wad, but you have to actually follow the installation instructions in order to generate it. Just read INSTALL.TXT.

    Ebay User Boycott Feb. 18 -> Feb. 25

    [/B]They don't rely on PayPal, they own it. And I don't think PayPal really started to get criticism until well after eBay purchased it, which raises the question of which is really shady: the parent or the child? I see nothing wrong with using eBay to make a living. One should be prepared for changes like this, of course, but I don't see how such a job is any less "real" than any other. I think he meant that he wanted to buy those things to spite the boycotters.
  17. While I really like your attention to detail, I'm not sure that emulating the KDiZD development cycle and release schedule is really necessary. I don't want to see the release getting pushed back to 1990.

    Ebay User Boycott Feb. 18 -> Feb. 25

    If you're going to boycott something, this seems like an incredibly stupid way of going about it. "Hey guys! Don't buy or sell anything for a week! That'll show 'em!" And then, of course, all of the transactions that didn't happen during that week because of the boycott will simply be made the following week and eBay's bottom-line remains untouched. This is just like those stupid emails that used to go around suggesting people not buy gasoline on a certain day of the year: absolutely pointless.
  19. This is looking great! I am very impressed with the accuracy with which you redid the maps. I'm really looking forward to playing this! How is the progress going with the rest of the maps? Can we get an estimate on how much has been completed so far?

    Status of Final Doom

    Final Doom is an individual game in the sense that it was sold individually and will run as a stand-alone game, and it is also a pair of commercial stand-alone megawads. Both of those characteristics are rather evident, and are not mutually exclusive, so I'm not sure what other kinds of responses you were expecting here. Could you clarify your question, perhaps?

    Possible Megawad Idea - Dark Plutonia

    Considering that they actually are two separate games, and were (and still are) sold individually, I think it's pretty clear what id's answer would be. Is it really that hard to figure out? And besides, the post that myk linked to mentioned nothing about resources made for the same engine, but rather using resources across different games (and Doom 2 and Final Doom are assuredly different games).

    Concept Doom Comic

    The Chaingunner looks awesome, and I can't wait to see your interpretations of the other monsters. I think the idea of using the Doomguy as a more secondary character sounds fine, but I'm not sure about having the Zombieman be the focus of every comic. I think having some comics revolve around some of the other monsters would work well and, as Earthquake mentioned, would give you more options.

    Working on my first maps. Woo.

    It should be if it's annoying enough. Too many people misspell "definitely," just like too many people misspell "separate" and "ridiculous." The censoring helps them realize their mistake.

    Possible Megawad Idea - Dark Plutonia

    This is not quite the same situation. Technically, the Doom 64 TC does illegally redistribute ripped sprites from the N64 game, and so should legally require a ROM for its data. Yes, I'm aware that they had encouragement from some of the developers, but that doesn't mean Midway gave permission. In this case, the maps based on the Plutonia ones could be considered derivative works, but I'm not sure about the legality here since I don't know too much about what id allows in terms of using resources from different IWADs.

    Working on my first maps. Woo.

    That is because "d-e-f-i-n-a-t-e-l-y" is not a word. Learn to spell.
