What's this? An update? What the heck?
Yes, it's been a very long time (nearly eight years), I guess you can say that my life online and in my personal life has changed
considerably. I will update you all on what's been happening after the important stuff that's gotten me off of my butt to get back into
the Doom Depot again.
The almighty Aubrey Hodges, the dude who composed the music for PSX Doom, PSX Final Doom, Saturn Doom, Doom 64 (not to mention and a bunch of other
soundtracks that aren't on this site) has officially released the soundtracks on his site and on iTunes. So, he asked me to replace the links to
my MP3s with a link to the official versions on his site. Not only was he awesome enough to supply us with the music after all these years, but
there's some pretty damn swell bonus tracks to send some new chills up your spine as well. So if you haven't already, be sure to check out his website at
. I removed the Saturn Doom tracks since they're they have the same content of the
PSX Doom, only shorter.
With a great amount of respect, I would like to thank Aubrey for not only his hard work but also his generosity! :)
Also, I had some Jaguar Doom music tracks someone gave to me long ago (I lost my password for this site, so I couldn't put it online, sorry), so I
added those on the Music page as well. If you are the person that donated them, please be sure to let me know and I'll give you credit.
And lastly, it should be mentioned (for the few of you that didn't know), Kaiser (aka Sammuel Villareal) reverse engineered Doom 64 to make Doom 64 EX.
Though it lacks the extra stuff from the TC (like the new levels and enemies) it looks and plays MUCH more accurately. I highly recommend you check it out.
Here's the link
Now for me. I'm for the most part out of the website corner of the internet, past making FAQs, and no longer recording video game music from games. I migrated from
the Doom community to the Castlevania community, to YouTube
, and finally now Twitch.tv
Though I've pretty much moved on from Doom and Castlevania forums
and such, I'm still pretty active on YouTube (taking a bit of a break, but regular videos will be back), and stream on Saturday nights on Twitch.tv. My
name on both sites is interestingly enough, elbryan42. Be sure to check me out, the links are on the sidebar.
Since my days of the Doom Depot, I've become a lot more open both online and offline. I've really come out of my shell, and I'm very happy. In my personal
life, I have moved on from my job of 12 years (part-owning and managing a restaurant), due to it really running my life, and having a negative effect on me,
physically, emotionally and mentally. I've had a few types of jobs, and now I'm in the Audio Visual industry. I've grown a lot through video blogs, getting
stuff off of my chest, and being a much more stable human being. I've learned that it's not a good thing for me to be forced by others or forcing myself into
any sort of direction. So I'm taking life one step at a time and seeing where my life takes me. I couldn't be happier.
So will there me more updates on here or the Castlevania Treasury? Possibly. I haven't really decided yet. But be sure to send me a message through YouTube
or stop by my steams on Twitch.tv.
Talk to you all again soon!
About This Site
Hey, I'm Rob, aka Elbryan42. Back in late winter/early spring of 2001, I finally finished my greatest triumph. I ripped the music
tracks from PSX Doom perfectly. Problem was, I had no place to put them. I knew little about FTP, and absolutely hated the
idea of html. I was basically living on the Doomworld Forums
at the time.
Someone there named Esco, who many may know as the one who has the one who posts in ghetto/gangsta. Anyways, about
that time, he ripped the sounds from Doom 64, and with a wave of generosity, sent them out thru email, on a 56K modem.
I thought to myself, "Suck it up, make your own freaking ftp." Genorosity is contagous. :)
So I made an FTP, starting with only my music and Esco's sounds. Since then, many, many people have contributed (and are
mentioned throughout the site!), and have helped to push the FTP over 1.5 gigs! Ok, that may not sound like much, but
keep in mind that Doom is a very old game, and stuff for it isn't very big. This site is now not only a Doom site, but the home of the
Doom Depot Team (DDT for short) that is working on a Doom 64 Total Conversion.
From the very beginning, I have decided to only put up stuff you can't find in stores. In other words, if you can buy it,
you won't find it here. No warez and no mp3s of albums (just home-brewed rips from games!), and no movies.
I'm trying to not cheese people off, plus piracy is dead wrong. People deserve to be thanked for what they do. Buy your cds, movies and games!
In fall of 2001 (Sept-Oct) I decided to once again get learning and make a website. It started off being very
archaic, to what you see now. Version 2 of my site was released on January 23, 2002. Version 3 on March 19, 2002.
On December 19, 2002, version 4 was released. On July 1, 200, both version 5 and the Doom 64 TC was released.
If there is something on here that you have the rights to and you don't want distributed, just let me know. I'll gladly
take whatever it is down. I made this website to be nice, not to cheese people off.
Enjoy the site! There's something here for everyone!
