  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdF75KXoGZo This is probably the best Doom WAD there is. Lots of great music, architecture looks nice and interesting in spite of the age. It's not just a bunch of bland, boring, identical rooms that feel put together in a half-assed manor, like with some maps. It has a professional look and feel throughout. Also they are not too confusing or complex to navigate. The focus is on the action here. You will probably never get lost. Monster and item placement is fair and difficulty is just right.
  2. I would change it to "space marine factor". As in, the higher the number, the more like a space marine/doom guy (and less like a thief) you are playing the game.
  3. This doesn't look bad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-UXj6A4NJA Levels look to be as much about exploration as they are about action, instead of practically a straight line like so many modern games. EDIT: No wonder, these levels were literally made by the same two guys who made the levels in the original game. https://dukenukem.fandom.com/wiki/Duke_Nukem_3D:_20th_Anniversary_World_Tour
  4. Starting to get to the point where I fear the pigs more than I do the thugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vksEJR9EPQ8
  5. Worth noting that Microsoft is getting ready to kill off support for 32-bit Windows, and most Linux flavors killed native support for 32-bit installs years ago. Not Debian, which is what I use (but not for that reason). My vote is to ditch 32-bit support if it makes things easier for the team. I used to play TDM on a high-end 3GHz Pentium 4, and the experience was less than satisfactory anyway. Only the simplest in-door missions ran well. As time goes by, people will want to use larger textures and better maps/models, and the memory cap of 32-bit becomes more and more of a problem in this scenario.
  6. Staring down the barrel of these flashlights is like looking into a loaded gun... lol Most of the LED flashlights with 18 emitters use pathetic low powerful ones that are only 5 lumens or so each.
  7. And moving to another engine would actually be a step backwards, unless it is free and open source. Since id games are open source, the sky is the limit, just look at path tracing in Quake 2. With some commercial proprietary engine, such features can never be implemented, unless the company developing it feels like it.
  8. TDM would be trivial to get running on the PS4. No need to even recompile the game. Linux, and other conventional X86 PC games with 3D acceleration already do.
  9. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/02/27/edge_and_yandex_browser_privacy_shame/ Web browsers collecting the user's hardware IDs, is especially evil. That said, this behavior isn't unexpected. Quite the opposite, in fact. Them: "Good luck clearing your web browsing history when we already collected it and associated it with the unique characteristics of the hardware in your computer!" (insert evil laughter here)
  10. Dragging these companies through the mud in the press with bad PR is the best way for consumers to fight back. Sometimes it even works! https://www.askwoody.com/2020/microsoft-backtracks-on-office-search-changes/ https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/12/17850146/microsoft-windows-10-chrome-firefox-warning Additionally, they haven't a shred of respect for consumers, so we have the duty to treat them just the same. https://www.theverge.com/2018/9/12/17850146/microsoft-windows-10-chrome-firefox-warning https://www.askwoody.com/2020/still-using-firefox-microsoft-edge-is-here-or-is-it/ I already converted mom to Linux. No, it's not a religious thing, I just don't feel like letting corporations fuck me sideways, and worse, being expected to personally help them do it! Things of a religious nature tend to be unproven scientifically. Nobody can say for sure whether a god exists and is watching over us. We can, however, say for sure that these companies are just out to lie, cheat, and screw us over in as many ways as they can for another five cents, as the evidence is all around us.
  11. https://www.computerworld.com/article/3519872/win10-search-blackout-due-to-fiber-provider-glitch-pull-the-other-one-microsoft.html Welcome to "software as a service"! Through the magic of an Internet connection and compulsory updates (take it or... take it), your computer is now someone else's play thing. Some (like me) liken this to being put on a leash. Next on the agenda is making you pay monthly to use your personal machine, and rigging it so that whenever the network is unusable for any not inconsiderable length of time, so is your PC! "Sorry, couldn't sign you in, come back later." They already tried to cram this type of policy up the ass of gamers once before, and it did not go down well. https://kotaku.com/xbox-one-needs-to-connect-to-the-internet-every-24-hour-511751949 Anyway, looking around the Internet, you can see that average Joes are starting to grow wrestless. Not that they'll do anything about it mind you (i.e. switch to Linux), because playing AAA video games is the only thing that matters in this world!
  12. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/01/31/practice_fusion_opioids/ It's like something out of a dystopian cyberpunk novel, except it's in real life!
  13. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/01/22/office_365_bing/ Here's a novel idea. The computer stays the way that I configured it. No company arbitrarily adjusts the settings to prefer their products right under the end user's nose. These companies know as well as I do that millions of grannies won't notice what they did, the rest won't know how to change it back the way that it was.
  14. I think the old retaliation code from Doom3 is still in TDM, so if two AI's are on the same team, and one accidentally damages the other (thrown rock/projectile), the other will initiate a fight. Maybe that is what happened?
  15. Cool. https://github.com/vestan/skinmaker/
