Eric:

You may be a DOOM GOD, but I am the Master of your Universe and all that bow
down to you eventually bow down to me. Yes, even YOU, Eric, kneel and drink my
knob after having beaten all who challenge you. Do you dare take on your
master, pitiful DOOM GOD?

Email me and request your ass beating, if you have the balls.

Hey man, don't mess with the creator of the Universe you apparently live
in. I would imagine a deathmatch showdown between John Romero and any
other mortal is going to be really ugly. Pull out your dusty copy of

HA! "Kneel and drink my knob" I love it!
And Eric, I wouldn't go messing with a REAL Doom God, terrible things might

Does this mean that Eric "Pook Gai" Leung can now include a

"ID number =1"

in his sig?

For that matter, I have often wondered if John Romero could be
related to George Romero. I can see similarities between Doom and
"Night of the Living Dead".

Why not go all the way? Do a complete graphic patch?


I spoke to someone who was doing a big Hitch Hikers sounds patch. Does anyone
know if it's been released? I can't find the guy's email address amongst the
dark dungeoness depths of my directories.

Actually, how about these graphic replacements?:-

Cacodemon ---> Bugblatter Beast of Thraal.
Cybderdemon ---> Eccentrica Gallumbits, the 6 breasted whore of Eroticon IV.
Imps ---> Krikkit robots.
Flying Skull ---> Bowl of Petunias.
Health potion ---> Hot cuppa tea. :)
Blue health power up ---> Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
Computer Map ---> The `Guide.
Baron of Hell ---> Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz.

Anybody care to add to these? What with the sound patch that that guy is
doing, replacing the graphics as well would make for an excellent PWAD! 8)

Anyone out there with more time than atoms care to take this on? :)

Ian.

I did the opposite. I asked Deep Thought to unverify the question. He said he
needed a Brownian motion source. I poured a hot cuppa tea over the console.

'Well?', I asked.

'What is 6 times 9?', came the reply.

Hmmm... try base 13, dudes! :D

Hi folks!

Here's the problem: A friend of mine has got a 486/40 pc with 4 MB RAM.
It is nearly impossible for him to load SMARTDRV and to run DOOM. (I think
because SMARTDRV uses too much EMS, and then DOOM refuses to work.)
He has QEMM386 7.02 on his machine with 639 kB free memory.

In the official DOOM FAQ there was the suggestion to load SMARTDRV with
the parameter DOUBLE_BUFFER, but MS-DOS 6.20 doesn't know this parameter
any more. :-(

Has anyone got an idea, except from buying more RAM, because without
SMARTDRV, DOOM is often too busy to load lots of bytes from the harddisk
and during that, the monsters have enough time to kill you ...

Many thanx in advance!

Michael

Here's the Problem. --------------------------------------------|

Doom needs 4 megs to run, and Smartdrv usually takes 2. Even if you
could use Smartdrv, the amount of cache availiable would barely be
able to hold a keystroke, let alone anything big.

Hmmm... double-buffering is used to prevent memory mapped devices (mainly
SCSI) from conflicting with stuff loaded in the high memory area. It doesn't
really have anything to do with reducing smartdrv's size or freeing more ems.

You should be able to load a 256K disk cache with 4megs of memory but that
really doesn't help a whole lot. Mt. Erebus still chokes bigtime. The simple
solution is to buy more memory. For the price it'll make the biggest
difference in performance, and not just for Doom.

Are you sure you are using the double_buffer right?, you need to put the
following line in your config.sys to make it work:

DEVICE=C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE /double_buffer

Yeah, I knew that when I posted it but I was out of ideas so I did it anyway.

I believe the DOUBLE_BUFFER command is used in the CONFIG.SYS file,
not the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Type HELP SMARTDRV.EXE at the DOS command
prompt.
As others have pointed out, I don't think it will make much difference
on a 4MB machine.

Will this really speed up the game on a machine with 4M RAM? I
tried a smartdrive cache of 256K and it didn't seem to help much.

No, SMARTDRV does between very little and nothing for your system when
all you have is 4MB of RAM. I know this, I had 4MB a week ago, now I
have 8MB, and DOOM is ALOT smoother since the game doesn't have to pause
every time and load textures and what-not everytime I run around a corner
into a new room. Very, very little disk access anymore, it jumps from
level-to-level quicker, and I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
To load DOOM faster, you need a faster drive. I've played DOOM
on my system at 8MB and on a commputer at work with 8MB, and the one at
work is much, much faster at loading DOOM by the simple fact that it's a
SCSI drive, while mine is an IDE :( Even with my faster CPU (DX2 66 vs
SLC 40) mine is slower at loading.

I don't know if this is the best config for me but after trying
just about every combination of things this is my configuration for Doom
on my 386/33 4mb piece of $!@#%....

CONFIG.SYS:
device=c:\dos\himem.sys
dos=high,umb
...other unimportant stuff

AUTOEXEC.BAT
@echo off
prompt $p$g
c:\windows\smartdrv C 600
mouse
...other unimportant stuff

Note that I use the EXE smartdrv in the autoexec file instad of the config.
I don't know what difference it makes but out of all my tests this one was
the fastest. Without SMARTDRV the disk access makes it unplayable and 600k
was the most I could allocate and still have enough room for Doom to run.
Any significant amount less than 600k is not enough cache to make a
difference. If anyone out there has a configuration that you think would
work better for me please share. If no I hope this helps some of you with
problems.

Nice touch.

This entire thread is a hoot. I love it.

Someone wanna write a BIG text file "The Hitchhiker's Guide to DOOM"?

With "The Restaurant At The End Of Episode 3", "Death, The Universe, And Every-
thing", "So Long, And Thanks For All the Frags", and, of course, "Young Space
