Can you please use sensible names for screenshots? Ie. instead of DOOM0284.png which is meaningless, please rename it to something descriptive like "Baron_exploding.png" beforehand. Thanks.

Yeah, of course. Ouch, not on the teeth! Please! Ducon 09:48, 11 Jan 2005 (PST)

discussion forum[edit]

Marine bar doesnt sound like a good name to me? I think we could do with something snappier or amusing sounding... Fraggle 11:12, 12 Jan 2005 (PST)

Yes, I thought about, err, Sushi bar (Duke Nukem 3D)? Hell’s pimp (not pump)? Marine’s pimp? Ducon 11:50, 12 Jan 2005 (PST)
How about something named like a Pub, but with a doomy twist? Like "The Red Revenant" or "The Imp's Head"?
"The Impse Head"? :-) Ducon 21:53, 12 Jan 2005 (PST)

sector type 11[edit]

I just made a 2-sector e1m1 pwad with type 11 in the second sector. You die even if you have typed "iddqd". radius 15:28, 10 Feb 2005 (GMT)

The E1M8 exit sector type doesnt hurt you if you have god mode on; it turns it off. Fraggle 15:35, 10 Feb 2005 (GMT)
No death here
With prboom I don’t die, here is the proof. Try it. Ducon 19:01, 10 Feb 2005 (GMT)
That is interesting. prboom seems to differ from vanilla doom and zdoom in this respect. radius 19:39, 10 Feb 2005 (GMT)

final doom map descriptions[edit]

I really like the work you are doing with these. Are you willing to apply the same attention to the 10 Sectors megawad? Jdowland 11:45, 2 Apr 2005 (EST)

Thanks. :-) But I remember that this megawad was hard, even on ITYTD. No? Or maybe it was 10sect2.wad? You may noticed that I played Evilution on HNTR. ;-) For the moment I’m finishing Plutonia (I’m at map11) and next… 10sectors if it’s playable for me. I can play Deus Vult and HR2 but on HNTR. About Final Doom, there miss the secrets and walkthroughs. Perhaps one day I’ll do them (but I prefer sending screenshots). Ducon 11:55, 2 Apr 2005 (EST)
I’m going to upload screenshots for 10 Sectors, with the skeleton that I used for Scythe 2. But before I need the four navigation bars. Ducon 07:20, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)


Those two spams were from different IPs, but I'm reluctant to ban the /24 they originate from, for fear of catching proper users. Since both IPs have only one edit to them, I'll leave it at a 72 hour ban for each. Thanks for the reverts! -- Jdowland 12:08, 20 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I think that it’s the same spambot and that it will come back in 40 minutes. I sent Fraggle a full (whois and traceroute) report. Ducon 12:11, 20 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, it's almost certainly the same bot both times. WHOIS suggests a ban on would do the trick, as the whole block is assigned to 'ATRIVOTECHNOLOGIES'. The abuse address, if you wanted to report them, is, although I've never had much luck with ARIN. -- Jdowland 13:59, 20 Jul 2005 (UTC)


Jeez man those screenies you have are extremly dark! How do play under such conditions?

Which ones? Ducon 20:15, 10 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Kansam's Trial articles[edit]

My belligerent remarks in User talk:Fredrik should only be taken seriously if you genuinely don't care which PWADs you are working on here.  But as Fredrik says, if you really, really like Kansam's Trial, and you're kind of bored with TNT (or whatever), then by all means write about Kansam's Trial.  :>    Ryan W 15:59, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

No no, I really like this WAD, even with its bugs and sounds. That’s why I interpreted your remark with a smile. Don’t you like it? Anyway, I worked on many other WADs (Scythe 2, Hell Revealed, Plutonia, Evilution…) by added screenshots. I’ll soon work on 10 Sectors and Hell Revealed II. Ducon 17:09, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Heh — no, no, I picked TNT out of a hat because COMPET-N people were saying in *1996* that they were bored with TNT.  :>    I don't know if I like Kansam's Trial because I've never used it... one thing at a time please!  This site is ruining my relationships with Time Pilot '84 and Phantasy Star II as it is.   :D     Ryan W 18:35, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

10 sectors[edit]

Good job :) -- Jdowland 11:43, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, and now Alien Vendetta. Ducon 11:44, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

{{doom 64 screenshot}}[edit]

Template:Doom 64 screenshot was originally intended to make clear that the shot was taken with the Doom 64 TC and was not the "real" doom64, as is the case with the Mother Demon pic. However someone else has modified the template to remove the original meaning. I intend to restore the templates meaning and the use of the template for this purpose once I've surveyed where it might be being used given it's "newer" meaning. -- Jdowland 14:15, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Aha, User:Nuxius created Template:Doom 64 TC screenshot to fulfill the purpose of Template:Doom 64 screenshot... it would have been nice if s/he'd updated the use of the old one too :( -- Jdowland 14:17, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
I removed it only because I only saw { in the caption (no title, no template). Ducon 16:09, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Ryan W := dumbass[edit]

That link on Central Processing was supposed to point to Impse, not to your user page.  Please accept my apologies.  Your user page does not somehow diminish the worth of your contributions here, and I never meant to imply that it did.    Ryan W 20:52, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

No offense, I was joking about myself. ;-) Ducon 06:15, 28 April 2007 (UTC)


What exactly do you mean by "pony"? oTHErONE (Contribs) 04:58, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

The little horsie. It’s a French dÉsencyclopédie joke word that denotes a moron. Ducon 06:05, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, ok. :-) oTHErONE (Contribs) 09:30, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

My user page.[edit]

hey, i appreciate you trying to do your job here but i would also appreciate if you didnt delete my user page again. Its the same as me coming on your page and pressing delete. I just wouldnt do it. there is no reason for it, i didnt put anything offensive up I just typed a line of biography. which i planned to add to this morning.

being a cat that has been a doom fan since an early age, i feel certain i can contribute to this site and that is why i joined, anything from screenshots to code i know a lot about doom. so please don't treat me like a troll.

Peace - Sladen Dead.

My bad, no offense. Ducon 16:31, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Simple question :-)[edit]

What's the port you used for the screenshots you just uploaded? Thanks. --Kyano 16:57, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

PrBoom. Ducon 19:24, April 30, 2010 (UTC)

Image uploads[edit]

Hi Ducon; welcome back!  Now that your contributions are auto-reviewed, may I ask that you use the copyright menu when you upload?  Thanks much.    Ryan W 01:05, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I did it automatically in the previous wiki, the menu entry was kept by some configuration. I’ll be careful. Ducon 06:59, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
Great.  I knew there must be an explanation.  :>     Ryan W 13:38, 11 September 2011 (UTC)
P.S.  Your changes in the File: namespace are not being auto-reviewed, even after I changed your permissions.  You might have to log out and back in again to make that happen.  Sorry.    Ryan W 14:17, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

New Images 10/17[edit]

You asked me on DWF about uploading your new images, but I noticed that you have already upped some of them. If there are lot more of them to go, it might be possible to import them through the backend using a script. You would need to send me a .tar.gz file containing only the images you have not already uploaded. If you think it's too much trouble, you can keep going manually if you wish; just let me know what you think. --Quasar 17:56, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

I finished what was missing. Thanks anyway. Ducon 18:57, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Fixed images[edit]

The series of images you uploaded originally to the other wiki for Community Chest MAP10 and MAP11 on 17 February 2011 precisely spanned the period of time during which we were taking our snapshot of the database dump and downloading the images, so apparently these were broken on this wiki by only having grabbed the file article and nothing else. I have manually fixed this by uploading the exact same images over their missing slots. I thought I'd let you know about it since you were the original uploader. You still appear in the file upload history, even though your original upload is missing. --Quasar (talk) 17:37, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

OK, thank you. Ducon (talk) 17:59, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Missing images[edit]

Check your email when you have a chance, I sent you some info about pictures you uploaded that have gone missing. Hoping you still have them handy for an automated re-upload I can do. --Quasar (talk) 05:05, 20 January 2018 (CST)

It seems that you downloaded the zip. Ducon (talk) 14:43, 20 January 2018 (CST)

File sizes[edit]

I am curious if you've been using pngcrunch on some of your shots. I ask because while everything you've uploaded has been perfectly reasonable overall and taken on its own, I'm having a backend problem at this point with disk space and what I'm seeing is that the ImageMagick software isn't gracefully handling your screenshots and is creating series of "thumbnails" for them that are up to 4 or 5 times the size of the original file. That is, the 1920x1080 original you uploaded is only 775 KB, but the next thumbnail size down (1600px horizontal) is over 2 MB in size, and the next one down from that is 1.7 MB, etc. You're not in trouble, I just need to understand what's going on here before we run out of space ;) --Quasar (talk) 18:16, 26 February 2018 (CST)

Actually after talking to some MediaWiki devs it seems the heart of the issue is that MW generates 24-bit thumbnails even if the source image is paletted, so this probably offers an explanation at least. --Quasar (talk) 01:03, 27 February 2018 (CST)
