@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.orgAlso, Devil Incarnate is Satan00:16:01
@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.orgI have been wondering why Satan has not actually appeared in the classic DOOM series, but I think I figured it out. Devil Incarnate is Satan. Angel of Death from Spear of Destiny could also be a form of Satan.00:17:07
@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.org Blzut3: 83 something is the passing score for Security Plus 00:57:21
@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.orgAn 83 is way to high for a certification in my opinion00:57:37
@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.orgI think CompTIA just wants to make money on these certifications00:57:56
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3CompTIA is a horrible organization01:00:55
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3if it's required for your job then you don't have much choice, but the A+ really is a garbage certification these days01:01:30

@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.org Blzut3: CompTIA also is woke now. 01:04:20
@jpb19:matrix.org@jpb19:matrix.orgThey did away with man in the middle term and replaced it with something else.01:04:44
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3that's amusing. But yeah they're obviously only still relevant because they're a name people know. I don't know how one provides certifications for repair and then lobbies against right to repair.01:06:53
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3may as well just change the A+ to testing how well you know how to work with FedEx and UPS to send stuff back to the manufacture since that's where they want to go01:07:43
@chungy:matrix.orgchungyI never heard CompTIA pronounced like that. Always instead Comp-T-I-A01:41:52

Actual Satan would probably push the series over the edge into religion. :P
01:42:27
@chungy:matrix.orgchungyIt probably would have been acceptable in the early 1990s when it was still a couple of indie games, but now that it's got a massive publishing behemoth behind it intending it to be marketable as far and wide as possible... I highly doubt they'd want to go that direction.01:46:00
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123Looks like Ziggurat also acquired at least a few Softdisk titles from Piko: https://www.gog.com/news/discover_these_3_retro_games_brought_back_by_ziggurat_interactive06:01:13
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3curious06:03:37
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3since Piko is on GOG you'd think they would have just published them06:04:15
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123Also on Steam, here's an example: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1601890/Rescue_Rover_Collection/06:04:16
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3Ziggurat hasn't replied to my email if you all are wondering06:05:21
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123They also replaced Nightdive as the publishers of NAM and WW2GI. My guess - money.06:06:11
@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3wonder if Ziggurat operates as a publisher or if they seek out IP rights06:08:33
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123Speaking of Hexen again, does anybody know if the 4-level demo version was actually identified with any concrete version number, say "1.0"? I can't find any reference in recreated code or the startup screen.20:44:38
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123On the other hand, I suppose the earlier 4-level beta release was not identified as a "demo"?20:44:58
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123nvm, the README.TXT of the beta states: "This is a 4-level demo", and is titled "Hexen: Beyond Heretic DEMO".21:10:06
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123First demo states "Released October 2nd, 1995", the other "Re-released October 18th, 1995".21:11:11
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123So, to make this short, I've gotten the 4-level beta's sources more-or-less fully recreated: https://bitbucket.org/gamesrc-ver-recreation/hexen21:41:56
@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123I intend to post about it in forums tomorrow, as it's currently night time.21:42:27

@ny00123:matrix.orgNY00123Found a typo, fixed it, updated a few docs again, and as of recently, posted about this in a few forums.20:40:45
