Hello All! Its jon-t, your negligent webmaster.

I recently discovered a tiny bug in the website that made it impossible for users to create an account. I have fixed it.

If you have tried to make an account, but were not able to log in, please try to make your account again.

To all of those loyal members of the community who have tried to make an account recently but have not been able to, I sincerely apologize for my negligence.

My apologies to everyone for the long time that DF-21.net was down.
I was making significant upgrades to the server (from a core2duo to a 6 core AMDfx cpu clocked to almost 4GHZ!!) and, as usual, it took significantly longer than expected. Sorry about that. But it’s done now.

Time for me to write my philosophy paper…

Site Back Up + John Romero

DF-21 is now back up. Rejoice.

A fun little bit of content for y'all. John Romero (of Doom Fame) recently did a walk-through of his recreated level of E1M8. Lots of great stuff for 2.5d level designers. A shout out to Dark Forces was made with a staircase inspired by Jabba's Ship from Dark Forces. John Romero incorrectly describes this staircase as being an illusion created using teleporters. This is misinformation that goes back to the Usenet days, when many people assumed that Dark Forces was incapable of sector over sector geometry.
