  1. I probably don't need to point this out to you, but a couple of great FZ cover bands are Ed Palermo Big Band, and Bogus Pomp. I discovered them a few years ago, and have collected quite a bit of their recordings. They often invite FZ alums like Napoleon Murphy Brock to perform with them.

      Thanks for letting me know, I’ll look into them - haven’t heard of them til now!

      Reminds me of that time noob saibot and a couple others spammed the shit out of the Skulltag forums with (>o_o)> ... I sometimes get old events from ST and DW mixed up because they used to look practically identical:

      Jeez, I forgot how much of a blatant rip-off it used to be!

      Really glad to see you’ve picked the new soundtrack for the grand reopening of Post Hell, tremendous

  4. So I just discovered that guy who did the "Doom is not 3D" video died almost a year ago at the age of 25 via suicide on July 4th.

      Yeah, I heard about that too, a few people in the comments on my response video informed me. I don't really know anything about him but it's always tragic when someone takes their own life.

  5. 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.

  8. Hey y'all! I've proposed to my girlfriend, and now she's my fiancee! :-D I'm just excited, wanted to let anyone know who might care.

  9. This weekend I put together designs for these backdrops for displaying my Doom miniatures. These are just some initial prototypes but the basic idea works. I wrote a Python script that does perspective transformations from a Doom screenshot to generate floor and curved wall patterns. When assembled and viewed from the right angle it looks like the figures are "inside" the screenshot.

  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!!

      So hard to pick just one.. 50/50 and G-Spot Tornado were the first two that came to mind, but there’s tons of great ones.

  18. @Shaikoten 32in24 pls, also oda compat from the start instead of boom if pvp pls doomworld people need to be aware of what the baseline really is

    1. Doomkid

      Doomkid

      Do you have that list that @Decay (or someone else idk) made that has all of zdaemon and odamex’s basic features, both what’s missing and what’s present? It would be super helpful to try and make what exactly the baseline is common knowledge just in case PVP mapping picks up again. I usually just tell people “please to be using zdoom format but only use boom features oh and also thing-based bridges” which is confusing for most and a mouthful to boot.

  19. Just in case. But, if "antares" is too long to type or pronounce, just call me "anta". Since it's the most favorable nickname for my, eh... nickname.

      To me you'll always be that big inflatable duck floating around. Typing this prompted me to do a quick Google for "big inflatable duck" and this was one of the results on the first page cracked me up: frd.jpg?w=768

  20. Hey Doomkid!Can i ask you a question?What do you think was the best year for Doom multiplayer?

    1. Doomkid

      Doomkid

      Well others may remember differently, but in the mid-early 2000s I used Doom Connector to query servers and the highest numbers I remember were from after that point. In 2007ish I remember seeing 200+ players pretty often, now it’s exciting just to see it top 100.

      It's hard to pick just one, but I want to say somewhere around 2007-2008, primarily because of the high number of deathmatch players present then compared to now
