Interview: Red_zero_x


1. What's your internet alias (or, what name do you use online)?
Red_zero_x or X

2. What's your Doom Connector name (if you don't have one, move on)?
Red_zero_x

3. How long have you been playing Doom?
I played for like 2-3 years when it first came out, fell out of the loop then i got back in about 2 years back. You can do the math :)

4. How long have you been mapping?
I would have to say about 6 months, but i have mostly been experimenting and learning as much as i can about doom, getting to the core of it all you could say.

5. What's your preferred map editor(s), and why?
I used deepsea and then switched to doom builder. After deepsea, doom builder was a snap. I use it cause its easy to use and has its own script entry for legacy.

6. Which do you prefer to make, single player/coop or deathmatch levels?
I love to make any map that doomers will play. i don't really believe in staying with one or the other, for they are both a big part of doom.

7. What's the best single player/coop map or wad you've ever made?
hmm...... well i made battle arena which isn't much but here ya go <=== this is an old clan i used to be in so don't worry im not double clanning like a n00b its dead.

8. What's the best deathmatch map or wad you've ever made?
*cough* *cough* the one i haven't made yet i guess. All this learning about doom has cause a builders block, but you ask for it i can do it kind of thing.

9. What is/are your favorite source port(s), and why?
Legacy and skulltag. More Legacy though for its awesome 3d floors. then skulltag for its slopes. if somebody make one that has both then that will be my favorite.:)

10. Excluding Doom, what are your favorite video games?
Any First Person Shooters mainly ive been getting into quake so that why im making an up coming tc for it.
 

11. Excluding the weapons in Doom, what would be your weapon of choice?
Torak 2 : the cerebral bore (come on now, a weapons that fires a drill working off brainwave to blow there head off, what could be funner. nice if it was a doom weapon.:)

12. In your opinion, should the BFG9000 be used in Deathmatch games?
Yes to get you out of those hair situations, like if the guy has 49 or something and you have 5, or if someone is camping in a place impossible to kill them. I dont agree with bfg lamers or with using bfg to get those last couple of kill to win the game.

13. Have you ever made any weapon replacements?
Yep got one for my quake tc.

14. Have you ever used an exe editor like DeHackEd? If so, what have you done with it?
All the time. its fun editing stuff to its full potential.:) ive added seconds or cut weapons/monster frames add new monster features -faster -slower , harder to beat sometimes. Though none of these have ever been released. Probably never will.:(

15. Have you ever made any port-specific (ZDoom only, Legacy only, etc.) levels?
Oh yeah i like making legacy stuff for it 3d floors and especially its scripts. and like i said earlier skulltag for its slopes and levitation items , runes.:)

16. What's your opinion on "n00b clans" on Doom Connector (if you don't use it, move on)?
I believe every body should have the chance to create a clan for what ever purpose they want.(Hey a every clans a n00b clan till it gets attention.) I believe its a phase almost every doomer goes through, wanting to start a clan, some clans make it some don't. If they didn't i wouldn't be doing this interview.:)

17. Do you have a favorite quote?
Not off the top of my head.

18. Do you have a website?
nope, not anymore kfhR is dead!!!

19. What's your favorite color?
Red, the color of blood and my doomguys suit.

Nomad: I started off with another interview page that had dark red text. I decided not to change it because (a), I'm lazy, and (b) it would have clashed badly, maybe. So there. :-P

20. What pisses you off the most?
Tons of things. My computer, My connection, My builders block, Pop-ups, Doom cheaters, and Doom jerks.

21. If you were to be stranded on a desert island, what three things (excluding means of escape) would you bring with you?
A shovel, A shotgun, A box of shells. So i can dig my way to hell and battle the barons, demons and not miss any doom action.:)

22. Which do you prefer, Pepsi or Coke?
Dr. Pepper for me please, oh... that not on the menu huh???? ok ill just get some water from this stranded desert island im still on cause i forgot a means of escape.:)

Nomad: ...yeah. What's with some restaraunts taking it off their menus these days?

23. Do you know that this is the last question?
Really, wow well that was a great interrogation err.. i mean interview.:) 

24. Do you know that #23 wasn't really the last question?
Really, wow no wonder my scroll bar wasnt at the bottom of the screen.    

25. Why did you just waste your time answering this survey?
To hopefully introduce myself to the other doomers out there. (actually I had nothing better to do at 4 in the morning.)

Nomad: And you were up at 4 because... wait, forget it, I don't want to know.
