W00t! Another week, another oldschool compilation!

Seems we've had a few of them just recently for deathmatch what with DWANGO5, DCDWANGO and now the favourite PWAD of Mother Russia - DMPACK. Of course, if you remember back then DW5 had barrels and DC was 3way TDM. So what's different this week? We're playing FFA with a mod that I tested out in the November Euro tourney on DMC2 last year which started out based on Instagib but ended up very different. Coincidentally that tourney map is also in this mappack! Very Happy

  • Players spawn with railguns and 100% health
  • All weapons and ammo other than BFG and cellpacks are removed from maps
  • Health and armor remain
  • Vampire mode is on with a 200% limit

For anybody unclear about the last point, it means that everytime you damage an opponent you gain half of the damage you inflicted - up to a maximum of 200%. Health pickups can also now boost you over 100%. So while it is possible to get instagib-style one-hit kills, it is far from a certainty.

Only other thing of note is I finally got a chance to use a music pack I threw together some time back. Ever have the in-game music on and get annoyed that the standard Doom2 tunes just don't fit the maps you're in? I do! So I made this pack which gives all 32 maps some tracker musical accompaniment more suiting to kicking the living shit out of each other Very Happy

Now go practice your rail aim before Saturday!

OMG

If this is that mod you showed me some months ago, then I am major-league excited! Railguns, BFGs and vampire mode are heavenly together.

I remember mentioning sometime on ABCDM that I really needed to practice my railing skills. This is my chance I guess. Razz

Despite my hatred of railguns, there is an Outpost server ready for you.

Sorry I haven't been able to put up servers for like the last month. I've been really busy with college work so I haven't been able to do anything with doom. I'm home now so I'm pretty sure I can put up this week's in multiple locations and perhaps participate!

  • Thanks to Unfy and Death - and Krawa of course - for the servers. But I told you before Death, we don't need multiple servers, just one dependable one.

  • Props to Cuppy and Jad who played plenty despite their respective lack of freelook and hatred of railguns.

  • Mad respect to the russian bears who were just too plain dumb to realise there was something else going on and insisted on playing their safe home server all through Euro ZDS (thus ensuring that only lasted about 30mins).

  • And fuck-you-very-much to whoever the hell decided to push DXCTF out on a session nite. Really appreciate your support there too Boner.

Well I did have to enable freelook on about every other map. I knew there was going to be a problem when I shot straight ahead and couldn't destroy a barrel. Laughing

I played some of the time with my monitor in a weird color glitch. I thought we were running an ecstasy wad this week or something. Laughing I exited out of the game after a bit - my eyes very relieved upon rejoining to no longer find purple-green walls everywhere.

Some nice maps and railgunning rampages!

Well, I hope you didnīt miss good olī Dark too much this sesh, but even in a nerdīs life (like mine) there is the rare occurence of s.th. else going on besides DooM ... now imagine that ! Very Happy

I promise, though, to be back again for #127 ... nevertheless I gotta admit that I am not *that* unhappy about having missed The Great Railwars Surprised

No comment on this xxxD --->
