#tf / Func_qmap BEEF Thread.
Inspired by Scampie who has more beef going than the average American "lite" breakfast =).

So let's have it out here...

Scampie vs. Xen

Scampie vs. ProdXL

Maj vs. ProdXL

(actually most people vs. ProdXL)

Wrath vs. Everyone

Grindspire vs. someone it seems

Me vs. Speedy occasionally

Mod-makers vs. well they just look like a right bunch of knobs anyway.

Drama is never over. 
Beef never changes. 
Happy New Year. 
Okay This Is Not Beef, But This Needs To Be Enshrined Forever. 
And didn't know where else to put it:

[17:59] Clench Throckmorton: i'm tempted to spare you the deets of my latest bathroom expedition @Shambler
[18:00] Clench Throckmorton: there was no joy to be had in it, especially not for me
[18:00] Clench Throckmorton: at one point, i honestly thought I was about to pull an elvis
[18:01] Clench Throckmorton: and the thought ran through my mind "which poor fucker will be the one who finds me like this?"
[18:01] Clench Throckmorton: tldr version....
[18:01] Clench Throckmorton: the quality of my diet over christmas went to absolute fucking pot
[18:02] Clench Throckmorton: and I very painfully paid the price in an unbelievably unpleasant and torturous way
[18:02] Clench Throckmorton: at one point i had to literally work it out with a fucking finger
[18:03] Clench Throckmorton: that has added a few mental scars i can fucking tell you that for nothing
[18:03] Clench Throckmorton: anyway, not in the best of moods right now.
[18:03] Clench Throckmorton: gonna have a cuppa and reflect on the new year
[18:03] Clench Throckmorton: maybe i do things differently from now on, i dunno

People who are just a bit off, as many are, openly or suppressed, but not offensive - I do not see them getting treated meanly for just being odd or saying odd stuff. This I would say is an even a better outcome than would become to, say, a kid in school being odd :D

Someone having a meltdown - suffering of mental illness, of whichever degree, well, what ?

Does having a disease excuse antisocial behavior in society at large ? Should it here ? Why should it particularly be that people are supposed to react in a special way here ?

What happens in public if one starts ranting off aggressively at people ? They stop and say - oh no poor dear he has a mental illness we must embrace his shitty attitude ?

Don't get me wrong, some metldowns are indeed gut wrenching (for anyone with a touch of empathy) but expecting internet people on forums to not take a slag at such meltdown especially if it contains insulting content - is just out of touch.

People with severe mental illness do need help and not dissing, but among a loose knit group of game/creative enthusiasts is not the place to hope to get it from. its not the function of such a place, it is not a "safe space", its a community of rando people tied by interest in creative activities, no more. You will get unpleasant brush ups with what you perceive to be unpleasant people, one has to deal with such things, it is not elsewise outside the house.
You might through PM get something more, forge a closer friendship with some members of such a community, but this is not going to happen with any community "at large" othe than ones focused on being support groups around the subject of mental illness. 
I was going to post this in the Quake 1.5 mod thread, but decided against that since it's off topic and will possible incur a good flaming.

I get that not everyone likes this mod and that most people can give a valid reason why they don't like it. I personally haven't played it so I cannot say. I did like some of the things I saw in the videos, even though I'm not a fan of the DP aesthetics either.

What I don't understand is the amount of vitriol that's being poured out over this by some people on this board, and elsewhere. Is it really not possible to discuss the merits / faults of this mod without resorting to this kind of language? How hard is it to write "hey, nice effort, but it's not my cup of tea because of X, Y, and Z" instead?

You can be against something without vilifying it our the people who made it. I know it's kind of in the DNA of this community to be overly harsh and critical, but I personally thing it's getting a bit old, and it's detrimental to the overall purpose of this place, which is advocating and improving the Quake mapping (and modding) community.

A lot of people are putting a great effort into keeping this place alive by attracting new talent in various ways. This kind of behavior just counteracts all of these efforts.

Please take a second to read whatever you are posting before you submit it, and maybe tone down the language here and there. You can criticize without being aggressive. 
What kind of "new talent" is it if they're not attracted to Quake by the multiple other great things happening that happened in the recent past, but instead it's Brutal Bloom that attracts them? 
You Mean Vitriol.... accusing people of having "infantile knee-jerk reactions"?? 
I Don‘t Care How They Get Here 
It increases the likelihood of them seeing the other content as well. Also generally people are more likely to join a conversation rather that a flamewar. 
And Of Course 
My rant applies to both sides of the aisle ;-) 
Well Said, SleepwalkR 
You're not alone with your thoughts. 
I take it you're unfamiliar with how big Brutal Doom is, and how tunnel visioned its fanbase is. The question "will this run with brutal doom" is practically a running joke amongst the Doom mappers nowadays.

I can't speak for every single mapper obviously, but I would find it very sad, and frustrating, that people would be interested in playing my content only with a mod that actively spoils the experience I intended the player to have. 
I Wasn‘t Arguing For This Mod Otp 
What you‘re saying seems like a proper argument to dislike it. I was taking offense with the way such feedback is offered by some people. 
There Are TWO Types Of People... 
Those that create...
...and those that critique.

...actually I suppose there's a third type of person which is "those that create and ALSO critique", which I guess categorises a lot of us considering 90% of the people posting here are mappers, even the trolls. Also, for symmetry purposes I guess we also have to include a 4th type - which is "those that neither create NOR critique", but you probably don't hear much about them on this board, and they wouldn't really have much to post that's particularly interesting or informative. Hmmmm... actually that leads to what I would consider a 5th type of person, roughly corresponding to "those that create, and are all really nice and uncritical to other people at the time, because they want other people to be nice to them and their maps, but then if they've gone on a mapping hiatus for quite a long while, they lapse back into being all cynical and critical because they have no immediate worries about burning bridges that might cause a backlash regarding projects that they are personally involved in." And then conversely, I guess there's a 6th type of person, best described as "one who both maps and/or doesn't map depending on mood/time, and just says what he likes and doesn't give a flying monkey's bollocks about what others think". Oh, and also I guess there's a 7th type of person, who never maps and has never mapped, but does post here, and is also really nice and friendly and positive to all and everyone all the time, a sort of "wallpaper cheerleader" if you want to coin a term for it (which I guess I just did - please credit me if you use that term). Also - and probably unlikely, this one - I guess it's theoretically possible to include an 8th type of person, who is really nice to people when he is NOT active in the scene (mapping), yet bizarrely really shitty to people only when he IS active in the scene (mapping). Perhaps this theoretical type of mapper could be discovered in the wild one day, but I'm not sure we've seen one yet. In any case he's probably quite difficult to work with in collaborative projects. So anyway, as I was saying... 
TL, DR: Kinn Can Literally Not Stop Inhaling Grandma's Anal Leaks.

You're a textbook Type 6, shamblechaps, for sure.

Quake is what makes people play it.

Quake is 1.5. 
Neither Are Double Posts. 
Some people will hate Darkplaces mods because they hate Darkplaces. And some people hates Darkplaces because they hate LordHavoc.

All I know is that there was a lot of drama about DP because of Xonotic/Nexuiz, and about LH because of politics.

FTEQW also has lots of the same features found in DP, but people don't hate it. People who aren't fans of the FTEQW style simply ignore it.

It's quite sad that while Carmack wanted people to enjoy being wildly creative with his games, a significant part of the fanbase hates that.

If Quake was supposed to be a sacred thing where deviating from the norm should be frowned upon, id software could have kept if fully closed source with nothing more than a SnapMap-styled editor.

It's quite ridiculous that people who considers themselves Quake fans hates the freedom that Carmack's work is about. It's sad to see silly drama being put above that freedom. 
Sounds like Carmack is messiah and we fight against each other like medieval orthodox and catholics.
It's a shame cause Quake is just a game. Legendary inspiring... entertainment
Some people will hate Darkplaces mods because they hate Darkplaces. And some people hates Darkplaces because they hate LordHavoc.

I actually think most of the the DP (ooh behave) "haters" here, dislike DP mainly not because of those reasons.

They dislike it because DP has become synonymous with the garish, tasteless "shovelware from 2002" look that many of the modders using DP actively choose to pursue - I'm talking blown-out full-saturation primary-coloured lighting, HD textures that seem to have been created using up to, but no more than, 2 clicks on a photoshop filter, and bloom that makes you wonder whether it's astigmatism kicking in, or the dreaded cataracts are starting to play up.

Let's say you have an Uncle - call him Toby - but every time Uncle Toby picks you up from school, he insists on wearing a fucking clown costume, and spraying all the rest of the kids and waiting parents in the eyes with his stupid fucking water-pistol clown-flower. Now, Toby's otherwise a nice chap - he's a smart guy and has the potential to be good - but every time he comes out he pulls this shit.

Ask yourself this - do you really hate Uncle Toby? Or would you, maybe, give him a second chance if once in his life he just put the stupid clown shit away and starting acting his age? 
If you're not running ULTRA settings with HD textures then you must have a shit PC. It's 2019 lol. 
I don't see people blaming the QW engines for the d_mipcap 3 high fov etc crappy looking configs that many multiplayer users uses.

I understand people disliking what users do, but it's silly to blame the engine.

The only other case I remember of people specifically hating an engine was Tenebrae. But in that case the engine was really not intended to retain the classic look & feel.

My only problems with DP are the viewmodel position (which has no cvar for a classic fov 100 look) and the bloated system requirements. FTEQW is more lightweight despite offering similar features. Still, I don't hate DP for it. 
If you're not going to make any more quake maps because of your fucking erectile dysfunction or whatever, at least do everybody else a favor and shut the fuck up aobut speedmaps. 
Maybe He'll Make WRATH Maps From Now On 
You Need Erectile Dysfunction To Map For Wrath? 
It's Not A Requirement, Per Se 
Is Looking Like A Reptillian A Requirement? 
Question totally unrelated to your face, BTW. 
Are You Referencing 
my cloaca? 
If you're not going to make any more quake maps because of your fucking erectile dysfunction or whatever

who said that??? Fine if that's the way you feel, I've already started "re-inventing" something I was doing recently: 
Oh My 
this will make a fine addition

I could make a big rant about how I get pissed off everytime I remember what happened, but I prefer to focus on how I'm pround of this game's team. 
well, unless killpixel/3DR says otherwise, pretty sure Wrake: Rune of Onions is using the q3bsp format which has lit water "out of the box" as it were. 
how I get pissed off everytime I remember what happened

So what did happen?

I thought eric's compilers do light water, but the engines largely don't do anything with it.... or am I wrong? (probably very wrong) 
Water Is Different In Wrath 
than it is in standard Quake, this may be why we're able to have lit water. 
great shot, i'd rather see this as a regular q map, but anyway...

That WIP is neither for quake, or wrath, but is actually for something hitherto unseen.

thanks and glad you like our water :D

we are using q3bsp, but water was lightmapped when we used q1bsp as well - just plopped a q3 shader on it (so DP/FTE only AFAIK)

About The Drunkenness 
otp -

the hypocrite in its bestes 
I'm Ok With The Singlemalt Tho 
To Otp And The Other Eddie-shambler 
For Posterity 
Because 1000sofskillsguy loves it:

Struggling and striving to give a bunch of overly opinionated cry babies a well maintained and feature rich alternative to “craigslist quake” (quakeone) was the hard part. Watching them avoid this all due to one guy (me … as if “I am the community”) was even harder. With the exception of how this effects a small handfull of people that are important to me, shutting this down is the easiest thing I’ve done in a long time. I actually perceive it as a testament to just how crappy this community is… more concerned with “boo hoo” than opportunity and expanding the very thing they claim to have a passion for. I was on Quakeone yesterday and noticed WickedLord complaining about the state of Quakeone. This alternative has existed for over a year but he would rather choose to sit in shit and cry about sitting in shit. Genius! This is what we are working with. “I don’t like Gypsy so, fuck myself.” lol … 7 months can’t come soon enough.

A smart attack on me would have been to sign up and participate in droves … forcing me to keep working and paying regardless if I wanted to and gaining your extra exposure in the process. Nobody claimed y’all are smart though. 😀 Your “smartest attack” to date is copy/pasting my pissed off rants, to SPAM your own site with the forethought that I would be smart enough to remove the SPAM from mine. Impressively stupid.

The pretence at "don't care" B2B the obvious bitterness B2B the planet-sized ego is truly even more impressive. 
Too much energy. 
The truth is, such initiatives gives the impression that their authors are control freaks. And people don't like control freaks.

Such highly passionate people feels like they can help everyone, but they end up freaking people out. Most people invest their time in hobbies to chill out, but euphoric people engages in their hobbies as a mission. It's a recipe for stress, because they end up going against the emotional needs of the community. 
Three Cheers To DrunkTruck 
For seeing imaginary "jabs" everywhere but also being very keen on passive aggressively handing them out on the DUSKcast.

Thumbs up! 
Nice of you to act like a jilted ex after being called out for being the perpetually indignant, ass-incensed, micro manager you are: 
Best Part Of The Above 
The "jilted ex" comment isn't even from me, it's from one of the many people who were rather amused when I DM'd them that screencap.

Really, if you knew how little respect you actually have you'd shut down both your playground discord and the youtube channel immediately. But obviously you'll never allow yourself to accept the thought of not being a "community lodestar" (this may or may not be an exact quote). 
I had a nice cup of tea sitting not far from my monitor when I clicked on this thread - and now it's turned into a mug of Bovril. 
I Was Kindly Told The Above Might Need A Clarification... 
I got banned from dumptruck's server after reacting to one of his messages with a "thumbs up" emote. 
That Does Not Clarify Anything Tho 
otp, these posts really bother me. Usually this thread is for tongue-in-cheek ranting about someone who did something to piss you off. That's fine by me, the beef is part of this community. But this is something different in my opinion, it feels like it's crossing the line.

We don't know what happened between you two, and by posting only slander and select pieces of information that do not even paint half of a picture, what you are doing here feels like an attempt at manipulating public opinion in your favour.

Either keep this beef between the two of you or put everything out in the open if you want to involve other people. Personally, I would prefer the former. 
If I wanted to manipulate public opinion in my favor, I would have stopped posting long ago... 
That's a good point. 
What SleepWalkR said. 
God Otp 
just lighten the fuck up and go outside already 
Says who? 
Still Waiting For An Explanation Or An Apology BTW.

Still Blocked 
at this point, otp prolly has more of us blocked than not. 
My two favorite insane people, right next to eachother. It's like a literal nutsack. 
What SleepWalkR Already Said 
OTP, learn to map. Use your Illusion. 
To Be Fair To Onetruebuttmunch 
He deffo can map and has been candid about losing his mojo recently. Which is fair enough. 
he needs to learn to map to even be recognised here. 
The only reason anybody recognizes you for anything is because you knew how to suck uo to the right people at the right time. 
No u. Learn 2 map idiot. 
Come On 
That's not the worst insult you can think of, after all you called me "scum", "polish thief", and "white supremacist" earlier, even if the last one was an anon post. 
I believe u did this yourself. And you still cant map. 
Yup It Was Me. 
I posted #231 and also insulted myself on ionous' stream while using both your accounts.

Go to your master sock now, and tell him what a good guard dog you were on func. 
You Really Have Serious Issues 
Not being able to map is only one of them. 
Lol QuArK Is Good

What about that content creator is slagging someone off for not currently creating content?? 
Important Announcement 
Good Point Shambler 
He still sucks 
I'm not otp, or indeed anyone beefing out in this thread, just a neutral bystander who wishes to remain anonymous so as not to associate myself with this bullshit.

I have to ask, what the fuck is this otp / mfx beef all about, is there something incredibly entertaining happening outside of func that the rest of us are not privy to? 
For example, posts #560 to #564 kind of read like they are in response to something completely awful otp did elsewhere, and I think it would be a great public service to make the rest of us aware of it, even if just for the rubbernecking value. 
Have A Slice Of Hate. 
It's just a bunch of wrinkled old nerds spreading slander about each other.

Back and forth, toss the hate around. See who is the purest Quake fan.

No one gives a shit about the maps anymore, they're all derivative these days with everyone and their grandmother mapping.

Much more fun to spread the hate. 
Marcher 2 Announced 
exclusive trailer here: 
posts #560 to #564 kind of read like they are in response to something completely awful otp did elsewhere

If that gutless, ball-less fuck Scampie is to be believed (lol), apparently there exists a person who chases your every move around the internet telling you to kill yourself and that you're a jew sjw cuck like someone does to sock and MFX and me.

Since I was guilty of such high crimes against the AD team such as: posting one of sock's twitter jams on func, and posting a download link to an early version of Giftmacher's proto-Sepulcher, it seems like that very unsubtle emphasis is supposed to mean "otp did it".

Which is obviously fucking bullshit, for a multitude of reasons that I shouldn't even undignify myself by presenting. 
You could ignore the "chases your every move" cause who knows if thats factual or not. But, you DO tell people to kill themselves and call them "soy". 
1. No, I just tell that to mukor, since he's a blight on society.

2. Daz has revealed himself to be a giant pussy the moment he hosted tf on Discord and made it safe for work.

@anon Asking A Sensible Question,. 
I think there is twitter beef or something. 
For Fucks Sake! 
The only interesting piece of shit post in this monkey feces slinging bitch fight was Kinn teasing about Marcher 2.

Except we all know he's to senile to map anymore... 

You are obviously the same guy as #575

People who I respect and communicate with on discord know what I've got cooking, gamedev-wise ;) 
Here's A Sneak Peek...for Any Doubters 
Less Beef More Playing/making Maps 
Also why is anon posting still a thing? 
Since Shambler Asked So Nicely. 
ww, you are a bigot and a racist, and it's fucking laughable that every other person in quake turns a blind eye to that.

And to answer your other question:

ww Today at 2:17 AM
do you actually have friends that aren;t white?
not counting the cheap asian girls

1. Yes,
2. They weren't cheap - there's actually an interesting IMO story behind all of that, and I suggested it to dumptruck for my Quakecast episode, but he was more interested in dicks and Jazz Jackrabbit. 
Okay, Glad You Cleared That Up. 
I have friends that aren't white too. I guess that makes us both great people. 
Oh Really. 
I'm sure they all share your views on "mass migration". 
According to otp, if you voted brexit and express any misgivings about immigration/integration it makes you a bigot and a racist; uneducated and probably inbred.
You're so full of shit, you pretend to be some humanitarian dog lover but it's all just a ploy to get your dick wet. For the amount of bile you spew it doesn't wash. Given the chance you'd be the first cunt loading people into the ovens. 
Whitewhite Is Very White 
who knew? 
Things I learned in discord yesterday: free movement of existing EU citizens inside the EU is exactly the same as free movement of people from outside the EU into the EU, and if you dare to imply that the two things may have different political ramifications in the eyes of the general EU populace, then you are stupid and misguided and ill-informed and and and and and and... (Note: merely observing this makes you hitler, expressing any opinion on this yourself isn't even necessary). 
To Whom It May Concern. 
Why the sudden need to look me up on Instagram and LinkedIn? It's only been a couple of months since you said "Lol otp thinking i give a flying fuck about any of his personal details".

If you need a reference, or something, just ask. 
Would be nice if I didn't have to ask Vondur again to remove posts where you use my real name, just because it's an open secret doesn't mean I like to have it out in the open. 
Yeah I Agree. 
No need to probe into off-line / off-topic stuff. I can't imagine otp having a real name would make him any more appalling than he already is :p 
Will it be more successful than the project you chose to completely not mention on your podcast? Who knows.

(At least ignoring it was better than enabling Scampie in his quest to rate everything skacky and I made a 1...)

What do I have to do with your beef with Scampie OPT? I am baffled. 
Oh...there actually is something you DON'T want to have to do with Quake related ? :D 
Threats now huh?

I'm just participating in the forum. Sorry you don't like it. I'm not stopping any time soon. But I will try and be more selective about what I reply to and how I reply. But you may want to do the same.

Just a reminder of some examples of times you have come after me recently (unprovoked):

These are just the ones off the top of my head. I'm willing to live and let live and I'm man enough to say I was wrong to comment about sm200 at all.

I'm sorry and I will back off now. You do the same. 
I was wrong to end that post with that sentence, I'll admit. It was nearing 2 AM and I was getting increasingly sleepless and restless so I lashed out.

I will back off now. You do the same.

Yes, good.
