    Please, For the Love of God, Do Not Read This [NSFW]

    The "old shit" genuinely warms my heart. You really went and hard-coded a text-match and I have to give A+ for effort. Then "buts" was not accepted and now i hate it. 0/100 Time to hit the Leetcode grind

    is it possible to do a build engine like talking protagonist?

    Can you use PlaySound with a tid of 0? There should be a way to call that function by a script triggered by crossing a linedef. There seems to be an example map at the bottom of that wiki article as well

    What makes a good player good?

    Lol it wasn't until recently I even tried dodging manc fireballs instead of just ducking behind cover. For some reason I thought you always had to dodge between the two fireballs instead of side-step them Do you think it's better to use 'practice maps' to learn these kind of things or to just save before difficult fights and re-play them again and again?

    Doom Burnout?

    If you are able, try going for walks outside. I find it's great for feelings like this.

    Doche mod

    Played through the first episode on Noob. Some fun bits here, definitely has a somewhat 90s-like amateur-ish charm. I ended up going god-mode at the end when I got frustrated lol. Some of the new weapons, like the burst-fire shotgun and the absurd nuke launcher are quite fun. I like the parts where you press a switch and the environment behind you changes. Just under almost no circumstances do people want to download multiple megabytes to play a WAD. I doubt any custom music is worth that, or could be put in as a smaller format. In episode 1 at least most of what I heard were MIDIs i think. I agree with others maybe try something much smaller in scope. If you must use custom weapons/monsters maybe just a few would do.
  7. Good ol baron punching thank u Gibbon. There is that weird bit behind the door looking out from the ending room, I thought i was trapped!. Maybe you set midtexture to the door? Either way, fun little map

    dead gtx 1080

    I'm sorry to hear that. I was going to suggest something PSU related as well, or maybe a re-seating of all the connections, but if you tried in another PC and has the same issue looks like it's the card, yeah. Does your CPU have onboard graphics? That's what I did when i thought my card died and i could still play prboom+

    dsda-doom build tutorial

    Maybe this belongs in Editing Tutorials idk, I figure source code stuff belongs in this forum. I got dsda-doom to build recently and I made this video for anyone new to building in CMake/VisualStudio I added full captions so video can be played on mute

    New to PS4 doom playing and fits questions?

    I haven't tried it on the new console ports but there should be an add-on menu where you can download these wads: https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Official_add-ons

    Scythe *Sigh* Syke!

    MAP28 is a great opportunity to practice movement skills, maybe even give SR50 a try (though it's not needed to finish in time) The vid in Shepardus' post is from 4shockblast, but you don't need near his level of skill to consistently get out alive

    You Should be Using DoomMake

    luv u 4 this ❤ jesus, I figured this would be a nice TODO but it's already there.

    Best optimized source port for low specs pc

    I'd give both a try. The release date on the latest GZDoom looks to be after the benchmark event they did to better support old systems, so I take from that this version should run well on old hardware.
