Well that came out of fucking nowhere.

>> No.5803868

Damn, gaming on PC is a wild ride. You'll never know the shit you'll have to deal with. Sometimes games will randomly break in obscure ways out of nowhere, even if they were working perfectly previously.

So, ALL old Windows games (up to 2006) on my PC started behaving oddly. I had to click on them twice to start, without fail, and from the first time I clicked, the PC lighted up like a jet engine, under heavy load. In game, I had severe FPS drops, throttling and even shutdowns due to overheating, no matter the settings I used. And it didn't stop when I closed the games, I had manually shut down the process at the task manager. A check showed things were in fact hot, over 80C. and that the CPU instantly went to 100% usage on all cores the moment I started a game, and remained there, while the GPU stayed at 0%. This only affected old Windows games, newer games (2007 onwards), DOS games and emulators weren't affected.

After a lot of searching, I found a VERY obscure problem, so random that I thought it was unbelievable at first. It turns out that every time you load up a game (native Windows games only, emulators not included), Microjews have your PC connected to their servers to collect data, and apparently, these servers were recently shut down, which made the PC fruitlessly waste all its processing power searching and attempting to connect. The solution was to search the registry for a very well hidden file, and modify it to block Microjew access. They weren't kidding when they said they are dropping support for Windows 7.

Sounds like you had shit cooling to begin with. Either a faulty installation job or a dead/gunked up fan. Or maybe you were running overclocked with insufficient cooling.
Something like that. Staying at over 80C generally means that something ain't right. Windows collecting data really shouldn't push your CPU to 100% for more than a few seconds.

Well, unfucking a fresh Windows installation has been standard issue stuff for at least 10 years now. Shut down telemetry services, clean up (reroute Windows bullshit) your hosts file... that kind of stuff. Microsoft doesn't want you to know these things of course. First time I've heard that anyone got hit THIS bad by it. Being unable to connect to a server might leave you with some bloated infodumb file but I don't see how timed out connections could push your CPU to 100% or fuck up launching programs.

>> No.5803954

You're overpowered. Don't worry about it.

>> No.5803964

It's a very old system by now, the configurations were done years ago, and it worked well all this time. These issues appearing now that Microsoft is dropping support altogether. Already got messages on how I should upgrade to Win10. on how continuing to use Win7 is a security risk, and so on.

>> No.5803971

Well I'd recommend putting some new thermal paste under that CPU heat sink. That stuff can dry up and become useless over time. Common stuff with old systems. You can get a decent tube for a few bucks. Running an old CPU at those temps can outright kill it or at least degrade performance significantly, throttling or not.

I put them roughly in the order I received them, but I exercised some editorializing, mostly by putting A Way Down at the end since I felt it was a neat way to end the mapset.

I was planning on doing a hub map inspired by the first level from EYE, but stuff got in the way and I could not finish my own map much less the initial hub, fortunately Zungry came to the rescue.
He was initially going to make a full map but it got too big to finish in a reasonable amount of time, so he offered to make the start map instead, since he is an experienced mapper he managed to make that one pretty quickly since you don't have to take into account monster placement and gameplay.

The whole ordeal taking this long is entirely my fault, I had the hub sitting in my hard drive for a week but it wasn't until yesterday that I finally sat down to play all the maps and stitching everything together.

Is it broken with Universal Gibs? If so, I can look into fixing it. For the record, it does check if the projectile has EXTREMEDEATH set and immediately gibs the enemy regardless of damage if so. It's supposed to, at least. Might have messed up the order of the checks.

I have been been noticed, I feel proud, altough it's much easier than most other maps, so it's kind of strange to end the episode with it.
I'd change one thing, though; I'd put something like A Long Way Up as the first level, kind of like shareware games would put some good stuff in the free episode, especially that the Blackest Castle is a really uninviting first level with its sudden difficulty spike towards the end and the medkit starvation.

A significant chunk of 1994 era stuff was very experimental, people were still familiarizing themselves with the game and crawling their way through with 3rd party software that wasn't always great, so lots of things were just done haphazardly and to see if an idea works or not ("Shoot the barrels and kill the Cyberdemon, oh wait, he's immune to splash damage"), sometimes things were discovered on accident, etc.

So then it's 1995, and people had learned some things and arrived at some conclusions, mapping wasn't quite as wildly experimental anymore. Fava Beans was one of the examples of a .wad that looked decent and played decent, competent and consistent, which wasn't necessarily the norm at that time.
In my opinion, however, it looked unremarkable even by 1996 standards, when you had stuff like Plutonia and what not, which had distinct visuals and aimed at being challenging through using monsters smartly, showing a good understanding on how to best place them to best chap your ass, and Fava Beans just looks incredibly plain and unremarkable next to that.

It's one of those things which are noted more for historical reasons than anything else.

Watch out, extremely hot take coming through. Handle with care.

The only gameplay mod worth playing for extended sessions is Hideous Destructor, it makes Doom into a completely different experience that dares you to try beating whole WADs with it, and the WADs becoming integral to the experience.

Every other gameplay mod I've tried ends up amounting to nothing more than just a fun gimmick that wears off, like you said, about 5 maps in. And the map adds nothing to said gameplay, it's just a backdrop to enjoy the OP gimmicks they give you.

This is why I always end up coming back to Vanilla Doom & Hideous Destructor. Together they both hold anything I could ever have hoped from a single game. Beating WADs with them feels like a rewarding journey

After having played pistol start vanilla on medium/hard WADs, I can't imagine going back to not pistol starting. Challenging encounters could be trivialized by just carrying over a lot of rockets/plasma.

I've been toying with the idea of making a Vanilla+ mod later down the road, really the only thing I'd do is make the pistol use a separate ammo pool from the chaingun, maybe make it a little more accurate. And give almost every weapon an altfire which is just throwing a punch.
That and give the weapons a new coat of paint, I like doing that.

After trying different things out, I've found my preferred way to play is
>the lowest compatibility engine for the mapset (though I use Crispy over Chocolate DOOM specifically because I've ran into "vanilla" levels that still crash due to visplane overflows and I'd rather not that happen; every non-vanilla feature can be turned off but I do play with the colored automap)
>pistol start, because levels with weird weapon selections or ones deliberately tight on ammo become homogenized when you're bringing shit from previous levels
>saving is allowed because some levels are 20+ minutes long and dying to chaingunners in the last room and starting over isn't fun (this doesn't mean savescumming every single encounter)
>no need for 100% kills/secrets; wallhumping isn't fun and sometimes it's smarter to just run for the exit
I used to force myself to do no-save UV Max runs and it really hampered my enjoyment, but after I started always doing pistol start I found the challenge from that is enough that I don't feel obligated to do either.

The fact that Civvie didn't pistol start Plutonia was disappointing.

Here's my review for HUH so far (all on Hard):

>The Blackest Castle
At first I thought "what the fuck, HOW", then I learned to stop complaining and start playing. Architecture is a bit cubist and simplistic, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Although I wonder if there is a way to win the shambler/vore fight without the quad.

>The Techno Tomb
Mine, no comment.

Liked it more than when I first played it, although the dude in the picture just wouldn't move (and hits didn't even register). Inspired me to do a space station map of my own.

>Runelord's Garden
Holy shit the music gave me feels. Same as with Blackest Castle, vines, VINES EVERYWHERE. Apart from that, pretty nice with the fountains and the maze and such. Although one zombie in the garden also didn't register any hits, although it was moving. Might be something with QS?

>A Long Way to the Top
Short, mean, I really liked the floating platform thingy.

>I wonder what I just did
Found it harder than the first time, but it was really enjoyable nonetheless. The tube out of the fish pond had me killed once, though, because towards the end I got kinda stuck/slowed down.

>Tomb and Tower
Condensed, vertical, quick. I really liked it.

>Take No Prisoners
Mine, no comment

>A Way Down
Gives me a strong Turok 2 feel. Apart from some janky platforming a really, really good map, very enjoyable.

>Church in the Wild
I really don't like slaughtermaps. The details were nice, like the holy water dispenser.

>The Heart is Open
Had a laff, very nice idea.

I didn't find the secret level, though. Or was that the church in the wild?
Also, some maps had weirdly different lightning than from how I originally played them. Did organizer anon compile them again?
All in all, it was pretty cool. Greatly different from regular Quake levels.

I used to play almost exclusively with gameplay mods for some time, Call of Doom with OBLIGE maps and Samsara (as Duke Nukem) with Ancient Aliens, BTSX, etc. and I finished all of them without getting bored mainly because I wanted a different take on maps that I already played on vanilla, and I only stopped because college took a lot of my free time.

A patch is an image between p_start and p_end lumps that can be defined as part of a texture in a texture1/2 lump. These textures, not patches, are what you see in the editor and game. Id used small patches that could be mixed & matched to create multiple textures, to save memory. With GZDoom you can just place images between tx_start and tx_end lumps, or a \textures folder, with no need for a texture1/2 lump. It also supports plaintext TEXTURES files that have more options like rotating, scaling, etc.

Slige maps always start with an S-shaped secret room.

Oblige maps slightly vary between version but mostly spread watermarks about throughout the level.

Beyond those, just the way the maps are laid out, play them long enough and you become very familiar with the map chunks each of them use, they become a dead giveaway that a map isn't made by a person.

>> No.5807337

As long as you don't save after every single fight you're good. Getting stuck in groundhog day situations where you die to the same place over and over is no fun, so going no save can be a pain if you're playing a really tough wad.

>> No.5807339

pistol start is good, but saveless only if you're good in a map and you want to show off to your friends. Also there's the element of getting closer to the end of a map you don't remember how it ends and you start to legit panic scared of dying and throw the last 30 minutes of playing in the garbage can. It's a trip but, you know, maybe not the optimal way to play

never mind, prboom overwrote the demo without a second thought. I could re-record it, but it'd play differently since I've already beaten the map and know what's coming.

gonna be honest, when I saw the secret count and the double revenants right as I grabbed the shotgun, I was worried this was gonna be one of those maps where secrets were all but mandatory. I only found four secrets, so I guess not.

despite all the traps, I never found myself in a position where I was truly boxed in. even in the blue key room, I had enough room to dodge the shitstorm, get enemies to infight, deal with the revenants, and clear it out with minimal damage. even ended up picking up the megasphere as I was leaving the room. I'd say the spectres in the dark came the closest, but even then they weren't all that bad. overall, I'd say it was somewhere between doom 2 and plutonia's harder levels in difficulty.

Map anon I died like 10 times in that room then realised I could run around the back, pick that sphere up, let in fighting happen and cheese from that little alcove.

Feedback: Can a nigga get some health? I think there's only a handful of small kits the entire level and yeah I get there's a brown orb. Maybe a health pack up where you first get the chaingun and the cacos.

Also, if you don't go through the door to the right to drop down to the archvile+enemies, if you instead backtrack through the dark and out the door where the mancubus is you can avoid that entire encounter. So that might need tweaked.

Also just like that other I anon I also only found 4 secrets. They were all pretty obvious being faces. Im gonna play again to find more. I love the map. It looks slick as fuck. Cool moving parts.

personally I had no problems with the amount of health and armor lying around
but adding more resources (rather than having fewer monsters) is a good way to do lower difficulties, so I'd say just scatter around some more health for HMP and HNTR, and maybe even have an early rocket launcher with some rockets a little after the red key on HNTR

anyway I recorded a new demo that goes roughly the way my FDA did, so you can see where you forgot to unpeg some textures (and that the plasma rifle secret doesn't work outside of zdoom)

turns out I didn't have a complevel set, and when I set it to 9, it started working
looking at the map and testing a thing or two out, it's the lines inside the lowering sector that break it
switching it over to use a generalized "lower to next lowest floor" special can get you the same effect without it breaking for some strange reason. means it won't work in chocolate/crispy doom, but eh whatever

As if zscript only would influence why I get less than 60 fps at any time with GZDoom, but I can get 600 fps from Zandronum with similar graphical detail and configuration. My other crappy old linux laptop can get 60 fps flawlessly any day with Zandronum also, it's great at lan parties.

Also, Graf discarding the lower resolutions and non-fake fullscreen it's just a new low from him, it doesn't matters if you play doom at 8k with sprites super fucked up aliased, it still looks like a fucking game from the 90's duh, it will never fucking look like crysis, but I'd guess his shitty tantrum-prone chicken meme brain cannot grasp that.

>> No.5807950

I never said the chickenman was good, I just said zscript was really good and zandybam suffers from not being compatible with it.

>> No.5807959

zscript is good, and I think it does not lowers the performance consirably (people put LUA in their games for scripting, I mean, fucking LUA, a partially interpreted language) the low fps count in gzdoom comes mostly from Graf's bad optimized code, specially his late hacky opengl additions.
And the net-code is totally abandoned in gzdoom, graf himself had said he doesn't cares for multiplayer.

>> No.5807960

I have a few places where I'm using generalized actions, so it won't be compatible with vanilla anyway.

>> No.5807972

In some ways it's lag behind GZDoom has been a benefit, it at lest didn't harbor an arbitrary console access exploit for like nine months.
GZDoom is a tower of duct tape, a poorly optimized one at that.

Funniest thing with the netcode is there's a cycle of some of the developers being dead certain that Zandronum is imminently going to stop being developed and have all it's netcode folded into GZDoom. This has gone on for fucking years.

You need to thank Graf for that, taking the options away from you, for your own good, because he says so, gzdoom's glorious leader, praised be.

Honestly, were it not for the fact that Zandronum was built off of Skulltag's remains and has years of netcode under its belt, the only options anyone really Zan, Odamex, and fucking Doomsday. "Competing standards" and all that, but I think the source port community needs another spark of a kick in the pants for multiplayer, and not just from a MM8DM or Brutal Doom shitfest.

I have questions regarding Doom's RNG.

So I've watched Decino's video on it, and gave it a try on my own, both with GZDoom and PRBoom+.

I noticed that I couldn't reproduce the same results on every start of MAP01 by shooting once in GZDoom, even if no mods are loaded. Why is that? How does GZD affect the random number table?

Moreover - when playing with mods, do they also call upon the same table for many of their values? Could it be possible that by playing with mods, you're weighing the RNG table a certain direction because your mods keep hogging certain chunk of the values from the table, thus making the game less random?

>> No.5808189

I've been using Linux on my secondary laptop for a while now and I love it so much more then I thought I would. I'd probably make the full switch if it wasn't for my VR headset (Windows MR) being Windows reliant.

>> No.5808198

my assumption is that GZDoom, being what it is, probably swapped out the index table for true RNG and thus nothing is truly 1:1 each "run" like normal Doom, hence why the ZDoom demo system is separate from and incompatible with vanilla demos. but this is coming from someone with little technical experience beyond the basics and just hazarding a guess

>> No.5808201

Holy shit I was looking for a community like this the past two days. Thanks.

>> No.5808207

I also forgot to mention - PRBoom+ also fails in showing me 1:1 parity between each run, even if I just shoot once in MAP01 like Decino does. In his video, the exact same thing happens. In my game, there's variance in the movement of enemies and who shoots/dies first. What's going on there?

Real dumbass hour question: what's the console command to force GZDoom to save current settings to a .ini config file?

I swear the fucking thing resets autoaim settings every single launch. And no the default config is not read only.

>> No.5808217

Current settings always get saved to gzdoom.ini on exiting GZD. Could it be that maybe when you exit it it crashes, so they're not getting saved?

Anyone know why a fresh install of gzdoom would just not allow inputs at all, once a game is started? At the menu everything works fine. But if I load into any map whatsoever, the controls no longer work. Not even esc, so I have to alt+f4 or alt+tab to quit.
