So, I was surfing around today, even though it’s a Sunday. I went to a couple sites that I don’t check out much. And I found a couple new versions of a couple things.
First off, a new version of Oblige was released a few weeks ago. If you don’t know what that is, it is a random level generator for Doom/Doom 2. Old versions also did a few other games, too, but they were eventually removed to focus more fully on Doom.
Unfortunately, it turns out that this will most likely be the last version of Oblige. The dev says that he’s been doing it for 12 years and he’s tired of it. So, hopefully this new version puts out some good stuff.
Of course, it’s possible that someone else puts out another version, as the source code is available. Of course, that won’t be me. I don’t have the tools or the knowledge to really do anything about it.
So, that was some good and some bad news.
On top of that, I found out that there’s a new version of FreeDoom available. That’s a collection of two IWads that are free to use with a source port that’s totally free. New levels, new monsters, new graphics. Nothing is reused from Doom or Doom 2, which is why it’s available and called FreeDoom.
And speaking of Doom stuff, it’s probably time that I update my collection of wads from the archive. There’s been new stuff released that I don’t have. And that makes me sad. So, I will probably be doing that at some point. More levels are always good.
That’s all I really have right now. Normally, there would be a stream tonight, but Summerslam is on, and I will probably be watching that, instead. Hell, the pre-show is already on. I didn’t know the pre-show would be so early, and that the PPV itself would be starting an hour earlier.
I know so many hearts are broken by that. But there will be more Diablo II soon.
So, I guess I’m about done for now. So, I am going to keep things on the up and up by winding things down. For now, of course.
