I dunno, I just feel like a bigger deal is being made out of this than it is but I guess people are pumped for it so apologies if I came across hostile.

Although, I do think "setting it up" this far in advance is silly.

that said, we will need a proper frontend for zandronum. it's not like I'm underestimating romero's capacity to install doom2.wad but I believe lots of newbies will come here too.

an easier one and more userfriendly, which start working right out of the box once the iwad files are copied in the folder, and options to install those files directly if steam is installed.

that would need to analyze how steam registers the path in windows' registry so the program could search for the iwad files in classic editions folders and the bfg edition folder.

tihan started a very interesting one but guess what, he stopped development (due to real life stuff or concentrating efforts on zandronum development, probably) and nobody was interested to continue it, i guess.

no, doomseeker and ide demands the user to configure folders and all that stuff. In our perspective it is good enough but a first timer can't deal with that! what i'm proposing is something that reduces the need of configurability and a 2 button interface: play and refresh server list. 3 buttons at most.

also, the account system may be on the way.

like everyone knows how to read english... as long as it is translated to a good amount of languages, yes.

but i insist in something working right out of the box instead.

Or put pictures in the tutorial, less programming!

I understand the desire to streamline things, but it's down to whoever go through the effort when it's really not that hard to set zandro up to begin with

He didn't specify a specific date. I assume it's up to us to remind him.
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.

I will totally be at this thing but trying to get in the server is going to be hard as it will be packed and probably lag up my pc.
I dont know why people dont care,I personally would just sit there going its john romero(if it really is him).As for the wads I say shotgun frenzy,brutal doom,zombie horde,deathrun,hell revealed,nuts or holy hell,maybe some terry wad to trip him up and thats all I can think of right now.

He's probably already played under some alias and you guys havn't noticed ... that would be ironic

He has actually played under alias many times on ZDaemon, Sean would check his twitter page sometimes and he does let on that he plays doom online occasionally
