Got mine on almost a couple weeks ago since I'm always getting sick. Didn't have to wait or anything since it just started.

Can your PC play Crysis' 8K video? My decade old PC choked playing its file locally after youtube-dling it.

I have never even heard of "Extreme Rise of the Triad". Can we maybe find the release date answer on http://archive.org?

So, when will they do more charities and release free classic Doom games like they did for Quake? In 2023 (30 years for DOOM 1 shareware)?

You'll notice an odd chunk of blue background on the old logos that matched the design of the site back then. That said, at some point I'll have a conversation with Frans about this.

That would be cool. It's a pretty easy fix with Photoshop, especially the latest version. It's literally one click to extract from background.
It almost sounds as if you're... volunteering.

So, speaking of volunteering...

Frans and I just hashed through all the implications of reviving the old logos. Neither of us is that well versed in graphics editing, and part of this will require someone who is. About 150 of the 200 or so logos in the archive will need alterations to be usable on the current site design. As mentioned, the blue background block on these logos would need to be made transparent like the rest of the background. Also, these logos are divided into two halves so they need to be stitched together. If someone with the wherewithal to make such changes has enough of an interest in seeing these logos return that they're willing to volunteer to do this, it seems possible we could make it happen.

This would be a step-by step project. We would just need to start with a single logo so Frans could then see if the other aspects of making this work are practical and doable. That would also give said volunteer the chance to decide if they are willing to put in the effort to repeat the process 149 more times. In the meantime there would be only so much wasted effort if it turned out Frans can't make it work.

So I'll revive this thread to put out the call for a volunteer. If no one steps forward I can put out a wider call in Out of the Blue and see where this takes us.
I don't own photoshop but I do GIMP and Paint.NET.
I'd be willing to give it a go on a logo, we redeyes are know for quitting early when the going gets tough so if it is something that is beyond my means I'll let you know.

And if you get more than a couple volunteers you could divide up the logo's among the lucky winners.
Or maybe a contest with multiple volunteers (not me!)?

You probably are.
But that would require parsing the text of 214K (and counting) stories, for a variety of strings, links, tags, and contexts. Far more involved than just querying statistics from database tables, and prone to be inaccurate and incomplete. So I'm not going to invest the time/energy.

nvrmnd found it
And here
Flashbacks. "Woah." Maybe, it's time for a new logo?

Doom 2016 is quite good. Worth playing for sure. Eternal though was a bit of a disappointment in certain ways that killed it for me. But definitely try 2016.
I saw the video play through. It looked nice. No time and powerful PC to play it.
