  1. Cory Doctorow blogged about an open source project called event-stream being turned into a malware vector. https://boingboing.net/2018/11/26/candy-from-strangers.html
  2. I have the Hammer of Thyrion installed on my pc. http://uhexen2.sourceforge.net/ According to the saved games I finished Portal of Praevus in November 2015.
  3. It seems to be back. I thought of a weak signal but I have a 4G LTE router and it kept telling me I had 4 bars. When the signal gets weak it will switch into 3G mode and be really slow. It had been out all day. Microsoft Security Essentials couldn't connect to update either. I started running a scan about half an hour ago and now everything works. I'll have to see what the scan says when it's finished. Thanks for the help.
  4. This is one of the few websites I am able to connect to. Google, Bing, Reddit, YouTube, etc. all come up "Server Not Found". Is it just me or is something going on? I'm using Waterfox 52.0.1. I can't connect to their site to see if it's something with my browser. Thanks for the help.
  5. The original DOOM and what made it different from modern FPS games were the mazes. I used to never save. I'd come out crawling from the wreckage or retreating with monsters chasing me to go looking for ammo and health that I had left behind. Remembering where I had left stuff was part of the game. Modern FPS games trap you in a little room and there is no going back. Even if you survive the room, but you don't survive with enough health and ammo to face the next room, you have to reload. It gets repetitive. That's one of the things I like about TDM. It brings back the maze aspect of the game.
  6. I haven't tried to create an FM and I'm not sure I understand the topic, but what can you take out of other FMs? I assumed that there were data bases or namespaces with reusable architectural elements and objects. How much of an FM is considered proprietary to the FM? Is it bad form to take a pumpkin or painting out of an existing mission? I figured there was some kind of headers in the files for these things indicating the original creator.
  7. I was not allowed to kill the zombies. Is that a bug? I understand I'm a thief not a murderer, but these are ghouls.
  8. I think characters like these would add to the ambience. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/memoryalpha/images/1/1c/Post_atomic_horror_jury.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120714202731&path-prefix=en
  9. A minor criticism of the look of the game is that the characters are all young and pretty. There is one fat machinist. I understand the guards, but the lords, ladies, cooks and priests could be older, fatter, etc.
  10. Rope arrows that wind up. If you just leave a rope arrow, the guards will see it. If you remove it after you climb up, you can't get down without jumping and hurting yourself. I would like rope arrows to toggle between being coiled up and hanging down when selected and you hit enter. Frobbing would still take them.
  11. That's part of my point. Holy water requires you to use up a rare special item, it has a thirty second timer and it is expensive in water arrows. It should do something. I was at the end of Flakebridge Monastery. There is a little side room in the crypt with water arrows and holy water. I thought the game designer was suggesting I take out the Revenant who was guarding the magic book with the holy water. I tried it over and over again. In the end I just snuck passed him.
  12. The wiki just says holy water is lethal to the undead. I thought that would include Revenants. It should at least stun them so I can run away or sneak passed them.
  13. I select holy water; hit use; a clock comes up and starts ticking off 30 seconds; I shoot water arrows at the skeleton guard; hit him in the face twice and nothing happens. It doesn't even slow him down. If anything, it just makes them run right at you faster. I don't think holy water works. If you have to shoot him a dozen times, it's pointless. It's a bow and arrow, not a machine gun. I don't get it.
  14. Never mind, I figured it out.
  15. Sorry, I meant the Training Missions. http://www.thedarkmod.com/missiondetails/?id=5 They don't show up when I start the game and there is no download link on the mission page. I shouldn't have called them the tutorials. Sorry for the confusion.
  16. I've installed the version 1.07 but there are no missions in the list. I know the tutorials were suppose to be part of the install but I don't see them. Where can I download the tutorial? I have a limited 4G LTE data plan so I don't want to use the updater or download the latest stand alone version. The new version is like 3 gigabytes. Thanks.
