Covaro Has Two Children...

...and one of them is named Mockery. Regarding this ancient project, hosted on Doomworld and started in late May 1998, a lot of people around here have been believing that the ultimate mock of Mockery would be it's eternal abandonment. However, ignoring the critics and the nay-sayers, Covaro has descended upon us once again to reveal the new Mockery! He has promised an updated website (after nearly five years!), and to whet our appetites, has put together a four level demo of the malicious, mocking monster. This small preview has also been uploaded to /newstuff, which means the hate-mongering bastards we have writing /newstuff reviews will get to spew some venom on it.

Now the fun part - which will be completed first, Mockery or Mock 2? I'd include a link to Mock 2 but slipgate.org appears to be down.

I hope he has kept up the playability aspect of it... as well as the ugliness. :)

They were pretty fun to play through, although map03 drove me nuts with the sky corpses (I played using PrBoom). ZDoom would be the way to go, but it bombs out with 128 texture errors. :)

I'm sorry, but I really don't like the thing at all after taking a look at the screenshots. It looks absolutely crappy and I am not going to download that shit!

ZDoom bombs??? What version? The preview version was limited in testing, but I'm looking for the final version to run (in some form or another) on:

MBF/Boom/PRBoom
ZDoom 1.22 and 2.X
JDoom
Legacy
Doom/Doom95 (Can't run original Doom.exe anymore)
Possibly a Linux port or two depending on if I feeling like setting up the Linux Box.

So if it doesn't run right now, just wait. I know atm it should run with the latest version of ZDoom and run in JDoom with a few errors in the maps cause of the gl stuff.

Not really, as it's my turn this week.... (but I might get some venom ready)

Hopefully Mock 2, as it's gonna rock.... (well, my maps will anyway)

WE WIN!!! =D

Anyway, I'm betting on Mock2. It's my understanding that it will be out before the end of [ERROR], so look out!

I got the web page, and when I cl*ck on the
download link, the same stupid page loads again.
When I enable scripting, I am bombarded with scripts,
flash crap, popups, and guess what. The freaking thing
still dosen't work :\

It's not on /newstuff either. :\

Any alternate links will be appreciated.

You know, that's why it's called "Mockery". It's a mockery of every good Doom2 level ever made. It's made purposely bad on purpose.

I was wondering what became of Mockery. I'm glad it seems to be back.

By the way, about Mockery getting a bad review; If was my turn, and it's funny, which it's supposed to be, I would give it a good review.

Wait let me get this straight... Mockery is Actually being released? I thought the whole point of Mockery was to be abandoned with the leader droping off the face of the earth.

Maybe the new goal is to release a small-ish beta and THEN the leader drops off the face of the earth (again).

No!!!

Besides the fact that they're both very high?
