    I want diminishing lighting.
    I want vertical recoil
    I want full 1920x1080, instead of the 4:3 that Crispy Doom has.
    I want the projected crosshair, or as I like to think of it, the laser sight. Crispy Doom is the only one so far that has the projected crosshair that also locks on to enemies to show you where the auto-aim is pointing.

    Damn, Crispy has a lot of features I didn't even know about. As far as I'm aware, no other ports have crosshairs that lock on, they're all completely stationary and unchanging. Vertical recoil is possible in ZDoom-family ports, but it requires modding, I don't think it's a built in option.


    I think Crispy Doom is going to be the only port that has you covered on each of those points, it has everything but the widescreen support. Considering that the port is clearly going well beyond classic vanilla limits, perhaps Fabian would be open to including a toggle between 16:9 and 4:3 in some future build. I don't want to derail the original thread so I decided to respond here, but it couldn't hurt to send Fabian a message / asking him about the possibility of implementing it.

  3. Hi Phileosophos, I was just wondering if you have a link to that MUS2MID source by chance? That would be great.


    At some stage, I would love to see the WadAuthor source as well. No rush of course - I just have this pipe dream about a “best of both worlds” editor that essentially combines the functionality and UI of my two favourite mapping tools (the other being Doom Builder). Cheers!

  4. I really like DEMIN.MID, it's awesome!

    1. yakfak


      glad you liked it!
      you can always use my midis if yr in a mapping mood

  5. I want to see a thread where only @seed, @Pegg , @Alper002 and @Ichor post. It would be a thing of beauty.

      My profile picture meant to be a swamp lich, but you couldn't have known that since it doesn't actually exist in any mod for anything.

  6. Gokuma’s return was the boon the doom community needed, I swear there’s a 50% chance of me laughing my ass off when you post. I knew it was gonna be the case ever since that Barfthesda thread a few weeks back 

  7. Anyone else think “Ramming the Ramparts” would make a great name for a castle map? You could probably make a great wad based off Trump’s word salad over the years, or at least find some great map titles.

      I'd just make the wall a map but you can do whatever you want :)

      It' an okay alliteration.

  8. My life has been pretty whack recently.


    Went through a big breakup almost 2 months ago and had to find a new place to live in a pinch, so I begrudgingly left my old job which I enjoyed..


    I’m just about fully moved into my current place after months of slumming it with friends, but about a week ago I got extremely sick, a horrible infection in my gums and both ear canals that has them swollen to the point of severe pain. Due to the swelling I am almost completely deaf at the moment as well - hopefully I’ll be able to hear again once this is over. Being hospitalised sucks ass.


    I’m so thankful for modern medicine and painkillers. While I’m drugged I can function enough to read Doomworld and browse around on my phone and torture/amuse myself with Twitter and YouTube and stuff (thank fuck for closed captions). I can’t wait til

    this is over though, when the drugs wear off the pain is so intense that it has me in tears. It’s been this way for about a week now.


    I just can’t wait for this to be over. The pain is worse than any other pain I’ve felt in my life, I can only describe it as feeling like my head is literally about to explode from being overinflated.


    My parents have been so helpful and I’m really lucky to have them nearby for this - if it had struck just a bit earlier while I was in Melbourne, I’d be dealing with this all on my own!


    Sorry for the whiny, sappy post. I’m just not used to this extreme level of pain. When the drugs wear off it’s absolute hell. I just can’t wait for this to be over.. if it was possible I’d give anything to make it stop. At the peak of pain I was bawling uncontrollably and seriously considered ending it all just for some reprieve. I’ve felt down emotionally before, but I’ve never experienced physical suffering to this level and have a new appreciation for those who experience chronic pain.


    When I get through this I will never view my life the same way. I’ll have an appreciation for just feeling normal that I’ve never had before. I think the first thing I’ll do once I’m able is walk on the beach and listen to the ocean. All I can hear right now is white noise and it’s seriously wearing on my sanity.


    Just wanted to post this for those who have been wondering why I haven’t been in discord or in any game servers lately. I desperately wish I could be. Wish me luck, people - I really need it now more than ever before. Thanks for reading this.

      D: I can't even begin to imagine what it must feel to go through that, but I wish you the best of luck. I hope you get well soon!

    3. Doomkid


      I'm feeling so much better than I was before - should be fully recovered by this weekend. Thanks again all!

    4. CyberDreams


      I know it's late but i just wanted to say that i'm glad you got over w/e this was. I've been dealing with some type of chronic pain for about 8 months now and it has completely changed the way that i currently live my life and i wouldn't wish it upon anybody so i know what you went through in a way. I might possibly even have to drive to a different state to go a clinic to figure out what's causing all the pain (the Mayo Clinic). It depends if they accept me or not. But anyways, you seem like a really cool dude (from reading your posts and whatnot) and i just wanted to say that i'm glad you got over what you had and maybe when i'm finally feeling better we can play some deathmatch or something :) (i'm a total noob though).

  9. I hope Erik returns one day and just releases like 5-10 maps in the style of Scythe 1. If there was ever a wad I wanted, this would be it!

  10. Well, I am done with relationships for quite a while. Last week I got a place with the woman I’ve been seeing for 8 months, then one week in she has dumped me, very unexpectedly. In 4 weeks time I’ll be moving from Melbourne to Batemans Bay, about 900km north. Looking for a fresh start and to be closer to my family again. The only reason I even came to Melbourne back in 2013 was to be with my ex-wife, so I think there’s really nothing left here for me at this point.


    tl;dr: Bleh!!

      As a fellow with all the love problems I could possibly never want I feel deep empathy and sadness for you, I am truly sorry to hear that bro :'(


      On the positive side, we will always love you.

    3. Doomkid


      Thank you all very much for the kind words!

      Damn, adam. This sucks a lot. I hope for the best for you man. Maybe to cope with that you can pet the doggo from wolf3d with the woof3d mod (not joking at all here, if you have Wolf3D and play the Woof3D mod you will feel better even if your dog just died. That's how I cheered up the day my dog died)

      Well, adam, we'll always love you mate, and when people like this do that, just know we will be here to support you dude. You're our favourite doomer (well at least my favourite doomer) and we will always support you man.

      Don't write yourself off yet
      It's only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
      Just try your best
      Try everything you can
      And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away"

      Song lyrics taken from The Middle by Jimmy Eat World.

      I hope that things get better for you in the future, and that you don't have to deal with this type of thing. It's something that I've not dealt with yet but I've had to deal with other relationship problems and failed relationships so to a certain degree I know how you feel. I just wanna end this message with a "we love you buddy, we're here for you"

      we love you buddy, we're here for you


  11. When will scifista return??

    1. KVELLER


      Soon, I hope :( it was pretty cool to read his posts and see how he seemingly knew every inch of the engine.

    2. nue


      Still hasnt come back : /


    3. Beezle


      Hope you're ok scifista42. Was looking forward to the Omega Project, but there's always 2019.

  14. My grandfather lived a long life and was a good man.. it’s hard to accept that he just left us a few hours ago. Everything has to come to an end.. Rest In Peace Eric Post, it was truly a pleasure knowing you. 😞

      My deepest condolences, mate. May your grandfather rest in heaven.

  15. Allow me to give you some advice: Do not release things as sequels to known series, especially when their design, gameplay and overall quality are extremely poor compared to the series overall. Your Plutonia 3 wad is shameless clickbait, that is why it has one star and is renowned as one of the worst releases in 2017. If you had done the right thing and released it as it's own entity, you'd be getting less negative reviews as there would be no preconceived notions for the quality of the product. I'm telling you this because I hate to see people repeatedly make the same mistake. This is intended as friendly advice, not a harsh message.

    1. riderr3


      At least it have sub-name "Going to Surface" So... maybe someday we can see official "unofficial" Plutonia 3 😄

      My Urania megawad also have some Plutonia flavors (along with pinch of TNT's). But I choosed the appropriate name, more or less.

      Except if you're too big for rules

      <3 I miss our dms

    2. Doomkid


      me too, I'm always avail on USA east coast evenings on the weekends! Decay and I have been playing through tons of DM megawads with the help of others, get in on it some time!

    3. Fonze


      That sounds fun; hopefully soon bruddah

  18. i miss our dm sessions :'''''''''''(

    1. riderr3


      Even when I'm crooked-handed to play DM, I like to watch DM demos. Especially those form Dwango times.

  19. Hey man, just checking if you've released or worked on any maps in the last year or so? I was looking through a whole bunch of ancient shit and came across one of your older maps, god the urge to play some Tango turf!

    1. Tango


      oh myyy what did you find? :D do you still have that map that we were doing for the skulltag coop project? the one with the seaside factory music from mario rpg that I was detailing. that's one map I really wish was not lost to the sands of time :(


      but no, I haven't released anything lately :\ got a handful of maps I've been working on, but nothing release-ready yet unfortunately. hopefully within the next few months though

    2. Doomkid


      Man, I wish I still had that old community coop map, I remember it well, it turned out awesome! there's so much stuff from back then that seems to be totally lost. It was twisted dimension, the idea behind it is awesome and it's aged very well overall. I'd like to see something that takes that idea of being unashamedly linear - Continually progressing through harder and harder little 'mini battle maps' that are beautiful to look at, take actual well-used advantage of newschool features, and provide just the right amount of cover/ammo/protection from the enemies. I don't know if you ever made anything else that but it was a really awesome throwback!

    3. Tango


      ye're too kind my dude. yeah it is an interesting idea, one that I think someone could more fully realize the potential for. I haven't seen anything with that formula in a while, though I imagine if it exists, it's probably in the Zandronum community haha. I think the sweet spot for me, for my preferences nowadays, would probably include a little bit of less straightforward progression, or at least some sort of looping back around to previously-visited but now-transformed areas or something. I definitely thought the formula was the coolest shit at the time though. it would be kinda neat to do something to follow-up with the wad, motivation-willing haha.


      and damn, that's a shame :( there are very few of my old maps that I would love to see again for reasons other than novelty alone, and that coop map is among them. oh well :( I have a lot of good memories working on that map. I can't even remember the entirety of the layout, either the original or my updated version. oh well :(

      Yeah, the YT community can be pretty toxic. I'm fortunate that only a few good folks ever comment on my channel.

      I think everybody out to have somebody worry about them, at least a little. ;-)

      I'm just glad you're alright, when regular users stop posting for a bit I can't help but notice!

    4. Ajora


      It's great to have you back!

  23. That MIDI you posted is pretty damn cool man, I especially like the second half with the solo. My only criticism would be that some of the nots seem too sustain for too long on the opening chords for the first 40 seconds or so. I really liked it though!

    1. wintertowns


      Thanks man, glad you liked it. I discovered the problem with the sustaining notes when I tested it with the microsoft wavetable synth, but I don't know whats causing it. However, I now learned how to replace the D_runnin file in Doom, and it seems to work properly with Fluidsynth.

  24. Really looking forward to those re-imagined tunes, you guys made some truly iconic Doom music and it will be awesome to hear it officially redone by the composers themselves. My ears are keenly awaiting!

    1. JDoyle


      I'm really excited for people to hear what we've been cooking up ;)

    2. Tolwyn


      Check today's Doomworld forums. Full song released (map 1). Spring 2018 release.


  25. YO what the fuck are you all doing with your life, why haven't you signed up for the big team DM tournament??


    I'd love to see some more people participating! This is competitive, but it's also for fun, so please do not hesitate to join in.


    Also if you're as good as myself/Decay or better lets team up!!
