Me too, Blue, especially when I am disabled. :/

Did Tony Stark kill that leaf-cutter ant? Also, they do not exist in the deserts!

All the more reason to pay cash, use a phony online persona, and use Adblock and Ghostery where ever you go.

the big question that no one's asking i think should be, what's going on with Doom 4? so what about Quake 5? are they still gonna do it or what? i hope they do a reboot of Quake 1 on Quake's 20th anniversary...
Who knows. I think one of the DOOM articles mentioned John Carmack talking about DOOM 4 briefly that had issues and he had no time to be with id Software to leave.

On the very same day, the Hubble Space Telescope became viable after a restoration conducted by spacewalking astronauts on STS-61. I don't remember using Worldcraft, but I used DEUS or something. I remember config.sys, autoexec.bat, multi-configs, emm386.exe, qemm386.exe, Stacker, DOS4GW.exe (DOOM used it IIRC), conventional memory (ugh), etc.

Oh God, qemm386.exe brings back memories. I am so glad I don't have to deal with that any more. All that voodoo magic just to get close to that 640k. I think the best I could do at the time was like 614k? Moving things into upper memory. /shudder
Hahah yeah. EMS, XMS, conventional memory, etc. DOS 4 was horrible for that. DOS v5+ and v3.3 were good. :O

Though it's not something most people want to spend the money for, it's worth noting that larger (17" or greater) monitors will provide a deathmatch advantage. When using a larger monitor everything on the screen appears larger (duh), which improves your aim, situational awareness, etc.

I remember playing Q1 @15" on the lan with a bunch of mates and one of them was from a filthy rich family so he had a PC powerful enough to run glQuake and a 19" monitor. Man did that look sweet.

DOOM(2) and Duke3D though were pretty much everything at the time though. Nothing compared to the speed and adrenaline of those games when playing deathmatch with your mates in the same room.
The good old days. I remember playing DOOM on my new 486 DX2/66 with an 15" OptiQuest CRT monitor, SB16 ISA, etc.

60. DOOM! Dec 10, 2013, 20:23 Ant
 
Jim wrote on Dec 10, 2013, 20:19:
Wow, 20 years since DOOM. How the world has changed since then. And yes I wasted way too much time playing that game. I still remember blasting through the shareware version and eagerly awaiting the install-o-meter as I loaded the full version from the 4 floppy disks. Creating and downloading pwads was as much, if not more fun than playing the original game itself. And the graphics, wow in all of their 320x200 pixel glory (or would that be gory ). DOOM pretty much started me as a PC gamer, and also the creative aspect of playing with WorldCraft to create my own pwads... ah the good old days. Now where did I save that custom config.sys and autoexec.bat?

46. DOOM is 20?!?!? Dec 10, 2013, 15:36 Ant
 
Happy Birthday, DOOM! I was a teen(ager) back then! I got it from a local BBS, but couldnít play it. My next door neighbor could on his 386 DX machine, but he had to study for finals so he only played a few levels. Haha. Years later, I made two DOOM 2 mod(ification)s: http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html Ö I still have my external USR Sportster 33.6 dial-up modem. I think I played DOOM at 9600 speeds with my next door neighbor (we both had 14.4k modems! :().

Does anyone remember what time DOOM 1 shareware was released to the public? I couldn't find that answer.
