  1. E3M5... seriously a great piece of music. Melodic, catchy as hell, can listen to it over and over again and not get tired of it. E1M8 is also quite nice, though a completely different style than E3M5. In general though, Phase 2 of this project has better music.
  2. https://www.webroot.com/blog/2011/09/13/mebromi-the-first-bios-rootkit-in-the-wild/ As someone whose scared of these, this is a fairly impressive bit of engineering. But the restrictive space that a BIOS image provides fortunately limits what an attacker can do, especially if the machine still has to appear to work and be fine in order to avoid raising suspicion of the end user, e.g. it would be hard to fit code in the BIOS to attack Windows and Linux, plus whatever file system you happen to be using. Of course they are going to go for the low-hanging fruit that is Ntfs and Windows
  3. I wish you could mount the PSU in the front of this case, thereby allowing for a higher CPU cooler.
  4. I'm used to elected officials constantly selling me out, but inciting an insurrection is a new low! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpym-vAH8OQ Come to think of it, asking other officials to "find me 12,000 votes" is pretty bad too. What amuses me the most is that if he had accepted the loss like a man instead of like a 9-year-old, he could have ran in the next election in 2024, and probably have won.
  5. I want to love this case, but only accommodating a single 3.5HDD is where they seriously dropped the ball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmH8o3rXpTA
  6. https://www.howtogeek.com/186954/bypass-quora-login-and-see-all-answers/ This is an example of how the Internet as it exists today "sucks my spider-balls". (for those who don't get that, it's an Angry Video Game Nerd reference) Maybe I want to read some information on a sensitive subject without logging in with digital Stalker numero uno, a.k.a Google, or their right-hand man, a.k.a Fecesbook keeping a log of everything that I have ever researched online. Btw who gave these bastards (Google and Facebook) permission to integrate themselves into literally every website on the planet? M
  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A7pQN5W08E I love how he just plugs this thing in, and shortly thereafter, up comes the desktop, ready to work. No sitting there for ten minutes waiting for it to configure things, no wading through ten pages of license terms and unchecking invasive privacy settings. Why can't Windows on a thousand dollar computer work like that? I'm thinking that they have managed to transform the Raspberry Pi into a perfect computer for grandparents with this new model that is on display here. Antivirus software and malware (is there a difference betwe
  8. Wonderful music in this game, but apparently people hated it (the game). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHi7JyG5t4s I can just sit and listen to it over and over again, and that's how game music is supposed to work.
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfYsDQqzhk8 Especially at 7:05... Daaaamn that's amazing.
  10. This game actually looks pretty good. Watching it, you think it's just a simple platform game, like most games were back then. But it's more complicated, (and more thought and effort were put into it) than that!
  11. The biggest issue I see with this, is programming AI that behaves convincingly like a thief. Having the computer be the guards isn't too complicated, just patrol and look for intruders or stuff that's amiss (open doors, stolen things), but programming an AI that sneaks around and avoids you is probably a lot tougher to do.
  12. https://betanews.com/2020/10/06/disable-bing-windows-10-start-menu/ Much like with any self-respecting rapist, these big corporations do not take "NO" for an answer. You WILL have Bing integrated into your start menu. We WILL collect any text strings you type in there. If you take steps to stop this behavior, then we will change the way the system works internally via updates so that your registry tweaks (which only exist to placate our large business customers) no longer disable said functionality.
  13. Ding ding ding, we have a winner! The major players in the video game industry hope and dream every day about transforming gaming into a subscription service like cable TV. Instead of paying just once for a game and then playing it and or modifying it (aka enjoying it) for literally decades like we do with Classic Doom, you will have to pay a constantly increasing amount every month to continue to use the service and play any games at all. This is why, although Microsoft has open sourced some stuff, like old Windows programs that no one cares about anymore (e.g. a calculator or fi
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gCZZkBATSc The world's first truly awesome digital camera. It was made in 1998. And I don't even care about the quality of photos that it takes, because it runs Doom! And it runs well, too. For those that don't know, it was hard to find anything portable that was powerful enough to play Doom back then, The Gameboy barely got any upgrades at all inside of a decade, and during this time, competitors who tried to come to market with stronger handheld gaming devices with full color screens and faster processors (which were still nowhere near
  15. Here's the fan-made Genesis version of W3D. If you spent as much time playing the original version of this game, you'll notice how different the music is in this version, since the synth chip in the Genesis is different from that of a PC.
  16. I always wondered if a fan could port Doom to the Genesis. Someone did it with Wolfenstein 3D and it looks pretty damn good. Even the music is there! Snes had Doom, but Genesis users got kinda shafted. Snes had official Wolfenstein 3D as well, though it was thoroughly censored, real, real bad. Anyway, you can kinda sorta play Doom on a Genesis with a 32X, but it is pretty terrible. No music, low FPS, tiny window. Something you might expect from a version of the game running natively on the Genesis hardware, but 32X brought more goodies to the table, which naturally enhances one's expectat
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Starting to get to the point where I fear the pigs more than I do the thugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vksEJR9EPQ8
  21. 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 o
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
