If you can't compile your own code, you can never be completely sure what you are getting is secure. But then, trusting some random on the internet has never been a good idea. Eh, how many drivers really understand what is going on "under-the-hood", as it were? Meh, a moot point.

Anyway, if you have any questions regarding the engine, try opening a post in the "how do I...?" thread.

You don't need to code to use Linux. Yes, you do need to use the command prompt more often, but imagine that as more of a chat window directly with your computer than it is actual programming.

I don't know what drives this misconception that you must program in order to use Linux. While it is certainly more friendly to programmers than Windows is, that's for sure - it's certainly not unfriendly to newbies, especially if you use a more intuitive and familiar desktop environment like Cinnamon (which is the default Desktop Environment on Linux Mint).

If you are a Windows user who has never touched Linux before, Linux Mint is certainly the best distribution to get your feet wet with Linux. Once you get more familiar and comfortable with it, you might like some of the other options available - Xfce is certainly one of the more popular ones due to its low resource usage among full featured desktops, along with MATE, GNOME, and KDE.

i just got done watching some Stargate SG-1 episodes.

wouldn't it be great to make a doom mod based on Stargate?

You don't need to learn coding to use Linux, as far as Debian is concerned. The least you'll need to remember is "sudo apt-get" if you don't have one of those software stores they've been bundling with certain Debian-based distros lately.

[spoiler]
Two big things I want to talk about, here. First involves my Faith, the other the hurricane that is freaking me out.

So, I'm having some tests done by doctor's (hopefully everything is okay, they don't seem too worried, but I am freaking out) and I am praying adamantly that everything is okay, and that I'm okay. Praying about my grief. Praying about my fears. I've been having a lot of changes go on inside of me mentally (in a good way), and I've been striving to be a better Christian, a better man of God, more loving and selfless. I've always been Christian, but sometimes I can be nasty and aggressive, bringing people down. (I mean, we are all human.) My late wife would always lift people up, is extremely selfless and giving in the name of God, and I feel like... how am I living the way she loved if I'm not helping lift other people up? Showing compassion? So, I'm on the phone with a girl I'm close with, and I'm telling her about all of my strive to make God proud. I'm also eating healthier (more fruits and vegetables, staying away from processed stuff etc. My late wife was/is Vegan, and knew a lot about healthy eating. It's difficult without her physically here to help me, but I do feel closer to her when I'm eating this healthier food.) Talking about how much I love God and want to really help people and bring glory to His name.

Alright, so I get out of the car after this 15 minute drive and conversation, still on the phone with her, and a few seconds after talking like this, BAM!!! lighting strikes right above my head, or right next to me. Right before it did, my whole body felt static and my hair was all standing on end (like when you take a blanket out of the dryer), and as I heard the rumbling while feeling that sensation I thought "Uh..." and then everything flashed super bright and the lighting struck terrifyingly loud. (The girl on the phone was screaming "What was that??? Are you okay??? Are you okay???" basically.) I don't know what it hit, but it felt like it was right above me, possibly a light pole or something on the house's roof. I ran inside the house freaked out, kind of in mental shock, trying to process what just happened. Then it dawned on me the conversation I was just having and the prayers I've been making, scared about a lot of things.

Okay, you with me so far? So fast forward a day later, I laid The Bible down on the bed at night to a "random" page, and then went to finish what I was doing on the computer. An hour or so later I went to lay down for sleep, and wanted to read The Bible a little bit. The page I just happened to open to, and the very first thing my eyes read on this page as I laid down was this:

[imgur]https://imgur.com/KpdZpYa[/imgur]

I started balling my eyes out. I've never even heard that verse before that moment, last night. And the fact that it's Verse 7 is also beautiful, 7 is important to me because of my late wife and my Anniversary, and it is a number frequently used in The Bible. I'm not a numerologist, per se, but I do keep an eye out for signs from God. I cried for hours last night I was so moved by this. Anyways, I hope that doesn't violate the religious rules as I just wanted to share something beautiful that happened to me the last few days.


***

Now, this HURRICANE is FREAKING ME OUT. I'm hoping it weakens and curves north, but we have to prepare for it to come straight at us. And if we have to evacuate, I don't know where we are gonna go, and I don't have my wife physically with me to help me with my agoraphobic panic attacks. When we evacuated Irma, she was still physically here. I'm obviously praying a lot, but I'm trying to figure out our action. Shutters are up, we're getting some supplies but ... I just feel so helpless without my wife (physically here.) With Irma I was fired up as a man to protect her, and she calmed my anxiety attacks, and we are strong together. I still have other members of my family here that I love, but I'm still... stumbling without her physically here.

Anyways, thanks for reading. Keeping an eye on that storm, praying for the best, preparing for worse.
[/spoiler]

Well, I have further continuation of the above events in my life. I'm happy to say, Glory to God, I was blessed with good news about my health. (And the hurricane! Although my heart breaks for the people in the Bahamas.) The doctor told me the specialist wrote I had "unremarkably healthy organs" and blood work came back fine. There was very slight amounts of fatty on the liver, and she wants me to take a break from drinking so it can heal and then to "not drink so excessively when you DO drink" and to avoid fried foods and such, but other than that everything is really healthy. Thank you, God. And then, on top of all of this, the Hyundai car dealership that the wreck happened in front of (the accident was literally at the entrance of this dealership. You can still see some of the parts of our car there, like small pieces of glass and plastic) just HAPPENS to be selling a Pontiac Firebird TransAm RIGHT when I'm looking to buy another one. These are pretty rare cars (not the rarest ever, but I've seen maybe 2 other WS6's in my county in the last 5 years, and 3-5 TransAms and V6 Firebirds), so what are the odds that a HYUNDAI DEALERSHIP just HAPPENS to be selling the EXACT car I'm looking for, used. The Hyundai dealership that the WRECK HAPPENED AT?! My friend Stephanie said that it was like God is telling me to let go of the car, that I was way too attached to it because of my late wife. That I can honor her and make new memories in another Firebird, but God wants me to understand that at the end of the day, it's just a car. His Love, Jesus' Love, and my wife and my love are what matter, not the actual car itself made of plastic oils and metal. Because I am still alive, not just existing, and God wants me to live.

Even more interesting, I didn't have enough money for the car (because the auto loan company didn't offer as much as they originally said based on what they "value the car at" about to be purchased), but the salesman and the manager really worked with me and knew how important a TransAm was to me with my wife and everything. So with my combined cash and the loan they *would* give me, they sold me the car about $1,500-$2,000 cheaper. Something similar happened for both the other Firebird's my wife and I have purchased, so it was like a sign. I've been going through a lot of major changes for the better, recently. I'm getting much more in touch with my Faith, trying to be more selfless, giving, loving, patient with people and understanding. I'm being a lot more mature about driving, and my attitude is changing. I can really feel Him touching my soul and this is the most I've been able to smile since the tragedy with my wife. Of course I will always hurt and be sad and grieving her until we are reunited Eternally in Heaven, but I'm starting to feel appreciation for being alive, instead of the horrible depression and survivor's guilt I have been in for the last few years. It feels really good, and I'm very thankful to God.

Agh, I'm crying my eyes out just typing this post...

The timing of the TransAm wreck a month ago, the positive transformation it is having on my life (including eating healthier and drinking less, being more compassionate and more patient etc.) combined with the fact the VERY DEALERSHIP THE WRECK HAPPENED IN FRONT OF suddenly had a TransAm to buy, of all cars, right when I started looking to buy another one... it feels like God made a very layered master "Chess move" (like He does, often. Not to simplify His infinite work, of course, just a metaphor), that humbled me, got me to emotionally detach from the car, got me eating healthier, got me drinking less, got me more proactive in my Faith, gave me a more positive outlook on life, and then went "Okay, here's another TransAm. Now stop being a jerk with it." lol

Here's some pictures if you guys wanna see. It feels great to be back in the cockpit of an LS1 ("Corvette V8" Engine) Firebird.

Something like this NVIDIA AI thing: https://youtu.be/MjViy6kyiqs


This thing does wonders! Could be applied to doom animations to increase framerate https://www.cmlab.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~yulunliu/CyclicGen

I like the 3D landscapes of tiny sprites of Powermonger so I recreated some of the buildings in 3D.

These assets would look good anywhere, good idea.

Thanks for advice there, lots of help for me, by the way, I decided to show what I got currently with the levels project "The Hell Renaissance". Looking forward for reading more of that wiki on custom intermission screens to tell the story :)

666th star on the gzdoom repo

Post by goodjaerb »

I was browsing github and I had never went out and found the gzdoom repo before, so I seeked it out, went to hit the 'Star' button so I could have it saved in my stars list. And lo and behold, I became the 666th person to star it.

I know that feeling. 666 is such a frequent number than 69.

Aaaaaand I just discovered that Lithtech and SDL2 mouse input is also broken again. I am so sick and tired of these goddamn forced updates. What is the point of spending so much time getting all of these old games working again only for MS to break them less than a week later?

I'm honestly more curious what changes they keep on making that breaks SDL and other mouse input in the first place.
