indeed... this mindset to projects is something the community sorely needs more of...doomfiend wrote:His original idea was he wanted to make wads for the DSPort of Doom 1/2 he started off with sub par wads back in the day when he was still learning how to map. and I tried and poked and prodded him that Boom format was obsolete and he should stop limiting him self. little did I know, Not only is the boom format popular, but with such limitations you can be even more creative. sometimes maps will surpass maps that are abusing the modern features. as far as I know he still likes working on the same idea of ds wads, and hats off to him to sticking to his guns. I applaud it. even going as far as working around dehacked to make it work the way he wishes
if so, not at all petty. I for one am sick of this obsession with brutal-doom. to me its over-amped somewhat ridiculous and just a little bit disturbing. don't get me wrong, the sprite/code work involved on said project is truly awe inspiring. hats off to them too, but to me the end product is something I'm sick and tired of having rammed down everyone's throat. its not for everyone and as an author of mods myself it does bother me when people judge a mod as 'bad' because it doesn't support bd. (truth be told its never happened to me personally but is bugs me nontheless) generic mods should support the basic official iwads doom,doom2,tnt,plutonia,heretic,hexen etc...DominicWhite wrote:Purposely? As in, it could be compatible but you're deliberately breaking it so it isn't? If so, that's rather petty. I hope I'm reading that wrong - If it's inherently incompatible due to new enemies/scripting/weapons that BD would break, then fine, but blocking stuff just seems silly.doomfiend wrote: my map project will purposely be incompatible with Brutal doom anyway you slice it,
some mods have a specific specification when the mod is conceived; if they fail to do what the original spec of the mod was then yes, that is a failure. otherwise its just personal prefferences. if you don't like it, learn how to change it and keep it to yourself. bugging an author to do something they don't want to do, and drumming up support from others along the same lines is just going to piss the author off and more likely to reduce workflow as desire falters...
please bear in mind that I'm am speaking i n generalities here. its on my mind at present and I thought it was relevent here...
ok off rant and back on topic:
this mod is awesome and I can barely wait for march 8th.
there much better than my moaning, no?
