Previously on Netronian Chaos thread... wrote:2ND P.S: I was exhausted with real life stuff and couldn't progress on, so i translated the whole Netronian Chaos Storyline instead. It's all english now and good to read.

Check this out if ya want!
Typing and translating for a hour is very fun when it's all done and don't have to type more anymore.

Driving myself crazy that I cannot source these these last few midis, taken Doom 2 Xtreme and its sequel, Doom 2 Xtreme Gold. I've been able to gradually identify all the midis used across both wads, but these last few just seem hopeless thus far. A few of them have a sense of familiarity, but nothing is ringing a bell otherwise. They had to have come from games/movies/midi pages/etc. dated no later than 1997, but where to even begin looking is trying my patience.

Another midi I thought I might have identified but am not confident about is this one, often circulated as "alien.mid" and claiming to be the theme from Alien, though it is clearly not. I found the midi also named "dkc3undr.mid", implying a Donkey Kong Country 3 source, but it doesn't match any song from the game. It was once listed on VGmusic.com for that game as "Underground", but there is no level with that title, and has since been removed from the website, so something seems fishy with this one. I've also heard it claimed that the midi is from Dawn of the Dead (1978), but again, it does not match any song from that film.
ADDENDUM: "alien.mid" was also featured in Doom 2 Xtreme, which was apparently released in August of 1996, going by its DeHackEd file. DKC3 came out in fall of 1996, meaning it couldn't possibly be a midi of anything from that game. Hmm.

Some of those sound really familiar, but I can't place them either. :(


My sis got me a UNSC ammo box. Plenty of room for ~50 Nerf darts and 4 six-dart mags. :)

I'm also going to be getting a very nice box set of games...

I IDed a ton from Dark 7 (2002): The MOD files for Missions 2, 3, 6 and 7 are from a unknown Amiga (?) game Justice, and the files claim that they're by Gustaf "lizardking" Grefberg. Not to mention Mission 5 being from Unreal Tournament (most sounds from it turn up in the wad). However the files for Missions 1 and 4 were from a MOD archive the creator had.

This sucks. I've heard that he has a bad health condition a couple of years ago, but didn't know it's that serious. So sad that some people are unlucky to get such illnesses (cancer?) too early in their life.

Kinda fell out of liking him awhile back due to some his actions and and being kind a prick way more often in recent times, but no one deserves cancer. Still hope that chance for recovery is there.

I'm truly sorry about this... I remember TB's reviews and such and they were impressive and creative. It's a shame that happened to him.

So this is a pretty cool thing that I think anyone interested in making a game (not just RPGs) should read.

The original article goes into a bit more detail. It's linked at the bottom of that URL, but it's easy to miss.

This is fucking amazing. I've never had internet this fast.

Meanwhile I've been DCing all day for no discernable reason. Thanks a lot, man. :P


On the plus side, I now possess Tales from the Twilight World and Somewhere Far Beyond! Only two more to go. :twisted:


Also: Not sure if there's a lot of D&D nerds around here, but I have some 5e homebrew stuff and I'm not sure what's the best place to post it for feedback and polish. (Not sure about r/DnD5e, after the beautiful scene of a heap of "yeah, looks balanced" for a Druid subtype that gets truesight at will from an early level.* I dunno, maybe if I make the explanations & details long enough it'll scare off the annoying people.)


* Basically equivalent to having wallhack & map cheats. This kind of thing only exists for people who seem to think the DM is the final boss.
