A Couple Finds.

It’s groovy.

5:09pm

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.

An Interesting Find.

In Doom 2, no less.

11:38pm

Okay, so it’s not in Doom 2, it’s a Wadfile for Doom 2. It’s called IdleDoom. It turns Doom 2 into an idle game. I will say, though, that I got all the upgrades in just about an hour.

It was a fun little diversion, though. And I’ll probably play it again in the future.

One thing that I haven’t done so far today is continue my Rise Of Nations game. I will probably do that pretty soon, though.

That’s really all I have. I wanted to comment on IdleDoom before I forgot. As usual, this is the time where I tell you I am going to wander.

That Was Quick.

Much quicker than I expected.

7:26pm

Soooo, the stream ended a bit early tonight. Okay, a lot early. I got through 29 and 30 at a pretty good clip. Technically, I died at the end of 30, but I still got credit for the kill, so that’s all good to me.

I wormed my way around map 29 earlier, in an attempt to figure out where I was going, and that helped a lot. 30 was easier than I thought it would be, because the cyberdemon in the middle of the map couldn’t shoot me, but I could and did shoot him. With a lot of missiles.

After that, it was pretty easy to do what I needed to do. Had to try it a few times, but I got it. I probably could have played it safer, but the frantic rush was good fun, I thought.

But now, Plutonia Experiment is all done. I’m glad for that, because it hurt many times on the way though. And yes, we still have Evilution to do still, but I’m going to do that some other time. I think Evilution is the harder of the two Final Doom halves, but I don’t remember for sure.

Anyways, here’s a video for ya.

More Fun Ahead.

I think.

3:21pm

Another day, another set of bills.

Details, I suppose. Anyways, it’s time for a post. I know you’re all thrilled about that. Or something.

I found a video to watch last night, but I’m all out of videos again. Not sure what I’m going to be doing to occupy myself when not playing a game.

So, that was my night. Today has been kinda quiet so far. That will be changing later, as I believe there will be another stream tonight. It should, theoretically, be the last stream of Plutonia Experiment. Even though we’re on map 29, I’m not sure that there will be enough time to get through that and 30. It will take a little bit of luck, that’s for sure.

But, we shall see later. Keep an eye on Twitter, as usual.

So, what will I do after that? Upload it to YouTube, for one. But then, after that, I’m not so sure. Maybe I’ll play something for a little while. There’s a new mod for Fallout 4 that I may want to check out. But, I haven’t decided if I want to use one of my last few mod slots for it.

So maybe I’ll play something else. Not sure what, though. I could work my way through Magic Duels. I’m almost through the first campaign. Or maybe I’ll play something that I haven’t played before.

I don’t know. I suppose I will figure that out sooner or later. It’s always such a difficult choice.

At any rate, I believe this is the point that I wander off, as I have nothing else to say right now.

Almost Done With Final Doom.

It’s true.

9:59pm

So, we made a fair bit of progress tonight. We’re not at the end, but we’re next to it. We’re partway through map29. And then the game is really afoot.

Not sure how I’m going to pull off 30. It will probably take a fair bit of work and maybe a little bit of sanity. Of course, I still have to pick my way through the rest of 29. That’s going to be an adventure, that’s for sure.

Anyways, that’s for the next stream. And probably final Plutonia Experiment stream. If we’re lucky, and I don’t fuck up too much.

And here, have a video.

A Bit Of A Stream.

It’s true.

10:34pm

So, we got a bit farther into Plutonia Experiment today. We’re up to map 26, so we’re close to the end now. I’m not sure how I’m going to get to that last map, and on top of that, not sure how I’m going to complete it.

I went and looked at it today, because I couldn’t remember what it was. And it was rather rugged, even with godmode on. It’ll be interesting to see how I’m going to do it, that’s for sure. Of course, getting there will be the rub.

I’m in an awkward spot right now. I have one room to go in to, but it brings up a whole lot of monsters. I suppose we will get through it, but it’s going to take some work, that’s for sure.

But that’s for next time, I suppose. It probably won’t be too far off, and maybe we can complete the game in the next stream. Not sure, though. It may take all the time just to get up to the last level. These past few levels have been pretty long.

At any rate, it will be a fun time, maybe. It will most likely be a painful experience. Kinda like today. Oh well.

That’s all I have right now, so here’s a video for you.

A Couple Things.

Indeed.

4:06am

So, I did stream for a couple hours tonight. It wasn’t too bad, for the mostpart. There were a couple hairy areas, but progress was made. The video is up on YouTube, but for some reason I don’t think it sent the tweet.

Besides that, I played Fallout 4 for a while tonight. I finished off the main questline with my broken save. There were a couple quests that didn’t work right, so I had to advance them via the console. But the last quest worked just fine, so that was good.

So, I am probably done with that save, at least mostly. I may take a few screenshots, but that’s about it. When I play next, it will probably be on a new file.

I know it doesn’t sound like much, but that kept me occupied for most of the evening, so it’s all good. But for now, I must go to bed.

I Just Don’t Know.

If I can do it.

4:14pm

So, I wandered into Final Doom for a bit today. I’m not sure I can do it. I can get the first next room cleared, and even was able to have 100% health at the end of it. The next room is pretty bad, though. I’m not sure about it at all. I know I got killed pretty quick, but I was trying to rush, so maybe that had something to do with it.

I may be able to complete that level. I suppose we shall see on the next stream. It will take some work, that’s for sure. Maybe if there weren’t Arachnotrons in each corner, that might help. I think those are what killed me.

So, I’ve done that, and I guess that unless I decide to do something else, we will be working on getting out of that level. I didn’t even check to see what level it is. Maybe I should. I’d like to know my progress.

Besides that, it’s been a pretty quiet day so far. That may change, but I have no idea if it will right now. I suppose we shall see.

I think that’s about all I have right now. I know it’s not much, but it’s better than some of my other posts, so I’ll take what I can get.

And now, time to wander off.

What To Do Now?

I’m just not sure.

8:54pm

Of course, I’m referring to the stream. I think I may be in an unwinnable position in Final Doom, but I’m not sure. I want to go in there with godmode on and see what I can see. It would be nice if I could remember the levels. It wasn’t that long ago that Cable and I played through Final Doom.

Granted, it was last year now, but I can’t believe that I really remember very little. I suppose that’s what I get for not really ever playing Final Doom.

I haven’t given up on it yet, but I’m not sure how to proceed. I’m also thinking about streaming something else in the meantime. I’m not sure that I will, I have to think about it more first, but it’s an idea. Maybe come back to Final Doom later? I don’t know.

I know it’s been a pretty quiet day so far. Haven’t done a whole lot. Well, I cleaned my desk up, so there’s that, I suppose. Besides that, not much has gone on. Not that that’s a bad thing, just the way it is.

I expect the evening to be rather uneventful, and it has been so far. I assume that will continue.

I guess this is about the time that I say that I don’t really have anything else. And that’s true in this case, that’s about all I have. So, that really does mean this is the end, and I shall wander. Seems like the right thing to do, really.

Some Streaming.

It was good.

12:00am

A good time of day, wouldn’t you agree?

Great, now I’m commenting on the time. How very odd.

So, we did two hours of streaming today. We got through five levels of Plutonia today. That was good. Could have gotten farther if I hadn’t been dying all over the place. I died a lot.

It wasn’t pretty, but I got the job done. I will say that there were a couple areas that I just ran past monsters instead of killing them all. It was just so much easier that way.

Everything seems to be trapped. No matter where you go, you’re getting locked in, or monsters are popping out of the walls, or teleporting in. It’s ugly.

But we shall persevere. And I’ll probably be streaming again tomorrow/today. Not sure when, though. Maybe 2pm-4pm. Something like that. We shall see. It also depends on when I get the hell out of bed.

I still need to upload the first stream to YouTube, so I should be doing that pretty soon here. That would be a good idea. It will take a little while to process, but I suppose that’s not a big deal.

Besides the streaming, I’ve just been doing some more video watching. I’ll probably be doing that for a while.

I suppose that’s all I have for you now. Time for me to wander over to YouTube.
