James Paddock (Jimmy)

James Paddock is a British-born, naturalized Australian Doom level designer and musician. He has been active in the community since 2006. His most notable works are the megawad Jenesis and many music tracks for various PWADs, an example being Plutonia 2. He has enthusiastically promoted the creation of custom soundtracks for Doom project, setting up "speed MIDI sessions" in the fashion of speedmapping on the Doomworld forums and creating the Doom Musicians Guild. He also maintains "Jimmy's Jukebox", a ZDoom add-on containing the original MIDI soundtracks from the Doom engine games, some other games of the era (such as Rise of the Triad or Duke Nukem 3D), and many classic megawads such as Icarus: Alien Vanguard, Requiem, or Memento Mori. This jukebox allows to create custom or random soundtracks to listen to while playing mods which do not feature their own original soundtrack.
