  1. This particular area of a map has caused me a lot of headache. It started out as a Doom 2 map with custom textures back in autumn 2017 and when mappers block hit me, I decided to convert the area for Ult. Doom and use it for my 4 level mini-episode (wip). I copy-pasted the entire thing into an existing small part of map 4. In retrospect I shouldn't have... sigh. 9 months later and I'm still working on it and must have spent so much time trying to make it work that it's made me considder scrapping the map altogether! The changes have been many and drastic and among a slew of other things caused me to create an entirely new path through the map, so that the start isn't where it used to be a week ago. So, what's the lesson here? If there's anything to be learned it is that I'm not very good at stitching together scraps and don't have the courage (or time!) to start fresh. There's just no turning back now and I have to trust that it's good enough. This will be released for Doom's 25th birthday and how this map in particular will be received by the players once it's released will greatly affect my self-esteem! :D

      Oh boy, large and complex diagonal rooms are a huge chore to align the textures properly.

      Thanks @antares031!

       

      Ohh, don't you worry about that, @Steve D! They'll come at you the second you set foot in their smelly lair! :D

       

      Yeah, you're right, @Ichor. That's exactly one of the many mistakes I made from the beginning. I should have never rotated it 45 degrees :(

       

      Btw. just putting up a small note here: Wanna help me playtest? Drop me a pm. The first level is 100% done and ready.

      My map for THT started off very similar if you remember Chris!

       

      Keep up the good work and I'm more than happy to test!

    The Official 'Trying to Find a Specific WAD' Thread

    I've got Selfish 3 and 4 on my hdd. But before I give them to you, it might be a good idea to just send Paul a pm. I'm sure he's got them all and would probably send them to you if I know him right :)
  3. That sounds more reasonable. But still a lot od money imho. I've finally begun building a collection of various Doom games and I'm starting to get worried it'll ruin me. Case in point: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.de%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F292556445895 Lol.
  4. If you got a mint condition box of Doom then sell it and buy a house because this is what a beat up item costs! Yikes. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273217476153

    Sounds good! Once you get all that extra stuff in there, it's going to look awesome! I'm very much looking forward to the release. I never plan a map either. I also just keep adding stuff, going back to delete, change or correct stuff. Continously expanding the map. That was a lot harder - if not impossible - with the old editors. DB makes working like this a lot easier.

    I think it looks great. There's a definite clean Kesler feel to it and it sure looks exactly like I would expect from you. But imho it's also almost too clean, almost sterile. The scene's missing some "life". Or maybe you just haven't put it in yet. It's a subjective matter ofc, so I won't tell you it's wrong :)

    So happy to hear that you're progressing well with the level and that you're liking DB! :) And I think I can speak for more of us when I say that you're always welcome to send the pwad for some testing with regards to see what kind of performance we're getting with it.

    Post Your Doom Picture (Part 2)

    Someone's offered me this Doom 3 poster. Don't know what she wants for it yet, so I'm looking for some background info on to help me determine the value. But I'm having a hard time figuring out the story behind it. I'm guessing it's either from some advertising or maybe a special edition. Do any of you know more about it?

    All those .dll's it says shouldn't be in the plugins directory are present in my install of gzoombuilder... weird. Maybe you're missing some other files or the folder is read-only or something weird. Or maybe you didn't download all the necessary files... or...? I don't know, it shouldn't be that difficult to get running. On a related note, there's a guy on Youtube with a playlist where he covers all the basics and more on gzdoombuilder. In the first video he also shows how to download and install it. Maybe you can find some help there. Here's the link to his playlist.

    Anyone played the Bethesda doom pinball?

    I played it when it got out. Thought it was good fun when I was on the train or the can 😁

    Good to hear that you got it to work! At least then we'll have someone on the boards with updated knowledge on this ancient relic 😉 I like your nostalgic approach to things as I'm sure we'll get a Kmap that reeks of the past! And that's a good thing btw in case you were wondering. But gzdoombuilder is still a massive upgrade which you really ought to give a serious try.

    Agree with Ola. Your time is probably better spent getting to know gzdoombuilder. It's powerful, easy to use and a very stable. It'll also be a lot easier to get help for it as those old programs are hardly used by anyone these days. Personally, I'd never go back to buggy old DoomCAD 6.1! 😄

    Well, back when we were a lot younger, filesizes mattered and it wasn't popular to bloat them with extra stuff. Today, that isn't that big an issue. Not as long as you give credit where it's due. I have zero experience with WadAuthor so I did a quick search on Google. Came across this page, maybe it can be of some help. But I'm guessing you've also seen it. I hope someone else can help you!

    Looking forward to see what you can come up with in 2018, Kurt! Welcome back :) Besides Afterglow's excellent page, there's also some available here: https://realm667.com/index.php/en/texture-stock-mainmenu-152-97360/doom-style-mainmenu-153-87237

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Much appreciated, guys! I need all the support I can get my greedy hands on! Sparetime's not what it used to be. That's why I stick to what I know best and what's fastest: Oldschool, vanilla-like levels. I can't do newschool stuff and I sure as hell don't have the time to learn it! :D
