    So sorry to hear about this loss. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Doc Faust

    what the craziest thing you done in doom?

    Playing E1 with eyes closed...

    What's your least/most favourite IWAD level?

    Lure the barons in a cramped position and deal out splash damage. A good trick for this is to hide behind the iron bars where the red key has been and wait until all four barons gathered on the ledge the other side. Twelve rockets are in most cases enough to kill 'em all. Just crush it! Doc Faust

    What's your least/most favourite IWAD level?

    Doom Love: E2M4, because of music, colors and some fun fights. E2M9 because it seems like an ammo waster first, but can be MAXed with a few shotgun shells, E3M6 for being the only open level in Doom I, E4M2 for the challenge, E4M6 for the clever design. Hate: E3M7 because of too many teleporters and to few monsters, E3M8 - what a joke, even without using the BFG. E4M8 - uncreative, final battle too easy compared to other fights in that Episode. Doom II Love: MAP07 for dead simple gameplay, MAP08 (not really once I managed to work out all tricks and traps, but it was fun to play the first time), from a pistol start MAP11, MAP26 are cool, too. Hate: To many maps to enumerate here. Everyone who plays pwads regulary knows how many Doom 2 maps are below the potential of the game given the new monsters. Doc Faust

    How long will Dooms popularity last?

    Even if the Doom scene ceases by 2020, by then there should be enough pwads to keep me entertained till 2050. Compatible ports should be no problem, if there is none yet I would port the source over myself.

    What official maps you play recently?

    Some weeks ago I replayed E4M2, E4M6 and E4M9 from UV pistol start as well as the first few E3 levels on nightmare. I almost never play doom II stock maps, since there are so many iwads that are better quality and more fun. Doc Faust

    Do you consider chaingun sniping to be cheating?

    Not cheating.

    does Doom work on Mac Laptops?

    Hi, PrBoom works fine under OSX, as does Doom Legacy (the later one without music). Then there is this ZDoom version mentioned above, but it seems a bit outdated to me. Doc Faust

    whats more dangerous? Spider Demon or Cyber Demon?

    You are free to fight E3M8 with whatever weapon you like. The map offers four pillars to hide behind. Try pistol starting the level, in UV there will be no BFG and very tight amo. Doc Faust

    we need to get people back into multiplayer

    Just installed Odamex 'cause I wanted to give it a try. There is not a single player on some server listed by default... Did connect to some exciting MAP01 dm against myself. Seemed to work so far. Doc Faust

    Best Monster Infighting levels?

    Just have been playing AV MAP 25 Demonic hordes. Eventually i got splattered by some rocket, but the infight between the revenants, barons and cybers in the central arena took another 10 minutes to calm down... Doc Faust

    Doom performance by actors of Mortal Kombat 3

    WTF was that? Too bad that video ends so early, i'd like to hear what that "Wow, doom!"-woman told the audience. Doc Faust
  13. Doom: Fix that chainsaw sound bug. Doom II: Never include Monsters resurected by arch-villes in the kill count. I hate not beeing able to tell if i got them all when exiting a level. Doom code: If i were about implementing doom today, i would have given it a small scripting language like lua instead of hardcoded linedefs for sector actions. Doc Faust

    Mouse Look: Do you use it?

    Hi Enjay and all, I was not planing to go into a shouting match and I wonder why so many people take my first posting way too seriously. The tread topic was a specific question about individual preferences, and I gave a concise answer. Other people have different preferences. So nobody should burn anybody at the stake because of that. I'll go to hell anyway because back in 1994, my first installation of doom had been an unauthorized copy. Until that day I must not use mouselook for remission of my sins.

    Mouse Look: Do you use it?

    Now that would be truly hardcore, indeed ;-)

    Mouse Look: Do you use it?

    I am above 320x200, but most times I still use software rendering in 8 bit color mode ;-) Doc Faust

    Mouse Look: Do you use it?

    If you use mouselook, manual aim or even stuff like jumping, then you're not playing DooM anymore. I'm not saying it's no good. I'm not saying it's not right. I'm not saying it's cheating. It's just not DooM. I love DooM, so i stick to the classic movement restrictions. The original mapset was meant to be played that way, as are many of my favorite IWADS. OTH, when playing Quake I ports, I have permantent mouselook enabled - although you had to tab the mouse button in the original game, it was designed to have free lookaround. Doc Faust

    Funniest monster infighting pairing?

    I love it - still no idea why they disabled this feature in later releases.

    Recommended WADs for beginners

    Hi, if a WAD is too difficult on UV, consider playing on easier skill levels. In my opinion, good design is to tune the UV monster setup to satisfy expert players. Doc Faust

    Unofficial Doom2.wad patch

    Oh yeah, i see.

    Unofficial Doom2.wad patch

    Would it be much of a problem in creating a pwad instead of patching the original one?
  22. Hi, E1M4 is not too hard if you know how to use the shortcut in this level. Watch Compete-N demos if you don't know what i am talking about. Doc Faust
  23. Never seriously tried E3 in NM, but maybe I should give it a try. I could beat E1 in Nightmare, once you get the chaingun in E1M2 you can rapidly mow through the enemy as there are enough bullets (Amo pickups in NM count twice). If you try to use the shotgun as main Weapon the shotgun guys can become a real pain with their higher attack rate. Doc Faust

    Doom fails to make list

    IMO Perfect Hatred is the best level in E4 and one of the best levels in the whole ultimate doom series. It seems unbeatable tough at first, but on the other hand the balance is quite fair once you worked out the right tactics and all those tricks. Of course the level is nothing for beginners, but this is the fourth episode and not the first. The same holds for E4M6 (the castle, i forgot how that one was named). I consider them both very good maps, because they provide a nice contrast to this "walk through corridors and kill your enemies one by one with your shotgun" scheme of Doom 1. For the same reason i love E3M6. On the other hand, i can't stand E4M1. Can't tell you why, because the design is nice and the concept to base a complete level on teleport attacs is quite interessting, but i still hate it. Maybe because fighting the four barons at the NIN secret sucks so much without amunition. And all the remaining E4 levels feel far too easy once you made it through E4M2 (except you pistol start them). Eventually I learned both E4M2 and E4M6 were Romero levels. What a nice coincidence. Doc Faust.

    Flash Doom Parody

    If you set your keyboard repeat rate high enough, you can just hold space down for a second until your power reaches 99%, this worked for me. But you have to release it shortly before reaching the top and then start tapping, otherwise this "cheat" will not work. Very easy. I liked the gunfight in the nukeage room, this was more fun than the real one in E1M1. Doc Faust
