Title: Hmm? OH! I REMEMBER THIS!
Post by: Nervey on June 24, 2009, 08:25:55 PM
I got my issue of PC Gamer recently, with a CD including CQ 1-3.  Ahh!  Chex Quest was the best thing I ever got from a cereal box.  Anyways, I joined the forums because I'm interested in playing multiplayer (I tried joining your skulltag server, but one of my wads is incompatible (I even pressed W for Wads! You only have two of them!)).





...Oh, and hi!

Apparently this article is getting around.

And a CD? Hmmm.

Anyway...

Hello. Prepare to be barraged by reminders involving ginger ale and brightly colored lamp posts. Please read the Board Rules. Thank you, and have a nice day.

Is this natural ginger-ale or the cruddy High Fructose Corn Syrup and Artificial Flavor kind?

Either.

It's not just the magazine- I'd probably think this is junk if I didn't get it in the cereal box all those years ago.  But I probably wouldn't have bothered looking into it if I hadn't gotten the magazine.

Also:

Should be "than".  And that period should grammatically be inside the quote, but that seems to imply that it's part of the replacement, which it's not.

I like it when our new members actually take part in the jokes.  :D

Wow, that magazine sure gets around. I need to find myself a copy...

Hm, you tried joining our server, but one wad is incompatible? Ah! That's it, you have to rename the IWAD found HERE (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?qzvdnggzmwr) to doom2.wad. That's why.

Anyways, welcome, Nervey, and enjoy your stay. I'm pretty much the Multiplayer Staff, so contact me with any problems.

Hey, a Grammar Nazi too, eh? I think I like you.  ;D

Hello Nervey and welcome abroad the USS Zorcher.  To your right you can observe the majestic and endangered Nerd Whale.  hunted for both its lack of meat and fat.

I hope you enjoy your stay here.

Thanks ChexCommander, you saved my day.  But uh... why are you guys using a renamed IWAD?  Does skulltag only work with IWADs of certain names?
Title: Re: Hmm? OH! I REMEMBER THIS!
Post by: TheMasterOfBattle on June 24, 2009, 10:35:38 PM
No you can use custom IWADs.  but having them renamed works best, considering that CQ is doom anyway.

A new member? Finding faults in the Board Rules that our presiding Grammar Nazi, Manny Cav, as well as the rest of the staff, didn't see after the countless times they've perused the rules?

I sense much potential in you, young padawan. Welcome. ;)

*cough*
Okay, I'm really starting to think that what Manny rushes in and immediately says both somewhat overwhelms and confuses the new members. Can we ease up on them? Y'know, the fire extinguisher and the lamps and the ginger ale and all? Telling them about Fan Projects and Board Rules is cool, but that stuff...maybe wait until the member makes a few more posts to tell him/her.
Anyway, welcome to the Chex Quest Fan Forums, Nervey! I'm Manny Cav, one of your fellow Chex Quest fans! This is easily the largest online gathering of Chex Quest maniacs like ourselves. As long as you're here, why don't you take a look at the myriad of fan projects (http://www.chexquest.org/index.php?board=53.0) we have here. It may take a while to play them, as there are many of them, and they take awhile to play through, but you're bound to find some you like. :) I hope you enjoy your stay here, posting with us about just about anything under the sun.

Oh, and of course, I must warn you that half of what I say will, at any given moment, set at least one member's hair on fire, so in case you find yourself victim to one of my wise utterances, keep a fire extinguisher on hand. You won't regret it.

I didn't correct it because I've seen Richie do "then" wrong too often for me to have any reason to believe that there is any hope for him. :P I do believe that's how I got started way back when. I bumped a topic that was a few years old, Loremaster told me what I did wrong, then I complained in Board Issues that there wasn't a single word in there about bumping topics. Ah, yes. Those were the good ole' days.

Hey, it's more fun when the new members are interested. Otherwise, they're confused.  ;)

Oh, and Nervey, Skulltag works best when the IWADs are renamed to doom ones. Since CQ was originally based off of DooM (as TMOB said), we pretty much trick the system into thinking we're playing DooM (or DooM II, in this case). It works quite well, since a lot of stuff in that IWAD is just DooM stuff with replaced sprites and textures.

I thought I fixed that after posting it. I guess my fail-up chewed up the edit, or I just forgot it.

Oh, and also, you gave him a link to an outdated version of the IWAD. The version in my GetWAD (http://www.chexquest.org/chexquestgallery/getwad/doom2.zip) section is the latest version AND is already renamed to doom2.wad, removing all hassle.
Title: Re: Hmm? OH! I REMEMBER THIS!
Post by: Nervey on June 25, 2009, 12:44:42 PM
But wouldn't it be better to name it after the final doom wad, since all the other skulltag servers use doom2 as their IWAD?

And... wow, this is a really lively forum.  Usually I have to wait a day for someone to reply.

I'm not sure if that would work, since our IWAD isn't actually formatted from or for plutonia.wad or tnt.wad, but doom2.wad. The doom2.wad name has just stuck. While a lot of the members here already have Doom 2, many also don't have it, either because they can't get it or because they're unwilling. However, what you suggest might work, if Skulltag can be fooled to think that "Slimeinator's IWAD.wad" is actually either of the Final Doom WADs.

Post by: ChexCommander on June 25, 2009, 01:13:33 PM
Well, that's a problem that I really don't know how to get around. I do play on some other skulltag servers, and I have to go through the trouble of renaming doom2.wad to doom2cq.wad every time I try to play. ><

But possibly using a Custom IWAD might work....

And Manny, I gave him a link to that from the "A New Mission" Demo thread. If that's not the newest one, what is? And I would have linked to your GetWAD, but I wasn't sure if everything was updated. You should tell us.  ;)

Also, these forums are quite active. We always get new posts by the hour. Stay with us!  :D

I always strive to keep everything updated on my website. You can always check the news page on my website to see what's been updated and when. Anyway, the latest IWAD is, again, linked to in my GetWAD page. I always list mirrors and sources of where I get my stuff when possible. The link itself is here (http://www.mediafire.com/?qmzam3nnnnz).

EDIT: I just checked the news section. I did update doom2.wad to the latest version, but I never actually listed that particular update. Why did I do that? Oh, well.... We're jacking the thread, anyway. :P

Welcome!

A lot of us play on Steam if you've got that (that is, if CQ isn't enough gaming for you). We play under the tag [CQ].

If you get skulltag working, you'll probably see me around, hope to see you there!
