Sorry to take matters in to my own hands but I thought if I don't ask him soon he might be booked up come December, but yeah I asked if he wanted to play the 20th anniversary of doom SNS (the correlation between the two) and he said :

Now we have to decide whether we try to "wow" him by pushing the boundaries of this port, or if we just kick it old school for the anniversary.

Oh. My. Damn.

We should cook up some sort of special project for him, a "Welcome Home" sort of deal.
But what should we do? Weapons? Classes? Maps? A gameplay mutator?


The Ranger - New class for HeXen.
ZDoom Wars - I drew some pictures.
Samsara - Some class-based mod I guess?
Metroid: Dreadnought - I am a dumb fanboy.

Better make it one epic 20th anniversary SNS. I'm stocked for reals and this isn't often.

Yeah I was thinking of a year long project. I think it'd have to be old school style though :)

Dude this is big news, should definitely cook up a few new maps while keeping it old style doom while also showing him what everyone has done with this port.

That's a bit of a contradicting goal, isn't it? If we stick to "old style doom", then we probably won't be able to show off the better, flashier, and greater capabilities of the port. Likewise, if we want to show off the power of this port, we won't be able to really show off old-style stuff as well.

I think it'd be better if we picked one goal and stuck with it.

Yeah you're right, most people start to play new doom ports because of the nostalgia and love of the old game but stay around for all the new features. I only thought old school to truly pay homage to doom - rather than just a port but I'm not fussed either way.

Are we going for nostalgia here? Because there's one mod I help someone with that comes to mind when nostalgia is mentioned... Ranger might bring up bad memories, but still.

And load it with ACStris because why the fuck not I guess? Not like it'd hurt (although I'd need to make it spectator-compatible) :V

If you can, tell somewhere how exactly interacting with spectators worked , because IIRC that was a slighty complex shit, and I am curious. :U Was it something with function/script return values?


This signature is empty and useless, I would write another useless idiotism here but people will call me a noob for that, so sorry, no more signatures for you. Go somewhere else.
