Memfis said: Hmm, it desyncs for me. :( (rocket suicide at ~0:26) Damn, I want to see it! My best attempt ended after I already got the red key. I was sooooo angry!
I tried to Viddump my demo with PrBoom 18.104.22.168 and it desynched exactly at 0:26! It works perfectly in older PrBooms though. Why could it be? I changed all my config to perfectly match both PrBoom versions and it still desyncs!
Anyways, here is a video for it:
I want to know who is going to be crazy enough to push this to sub-2 :D
I don't recall that map since when I was doing some tysons for icarus. Damn, this map just ripes for it, although anything below 50 minutes or so would be an achievement. Plethora of infighting possible and saving those 450 or so bullets for last 6 HKs and baron... urgh, not sure if I want to try it.

This level looks like a real pain to Tyson. No berserk and quite a lot of heavy monsters for not many bullets. Not only there are 6 HKs and a Baron but also a Mancubus, 2 Archies, Pain Elemental, Cacos, Spectres, etc. If NM needed patience and a fresh mind, Tyson would need it 5 times more!
Wow, NMs on ic17 and ic23. Not ones I thought I was ever likely to see.
Donce made some serious NM efforts on ic16. I think he uploaded his best attempt recently.
I looked hard at ic20 for a way to use a void glide, but couldn't find a route between the breakout and breakin points.
In ic29, there might be a void glide possibility, but I haven't verified it myself (someone else claimed that was so). Still a messy map for NM though.
I guess ic01 and ic11 would just be damned tough fights that someone with great NM skills might take on. If Icarus had been chosen as a Compet-n pwad (I never understood why it wasn't), we might already have seen them.
So I find my stuck in Deus Vult 2 and think to myself that if I'm replaying something over and over, might as well be recording something.
Strange that no one's tried to improve the non-TAS UV Max record as it is stupidly easy to do in under 10 minutes. If I'm going to improve the existing record, make it a big one and decided it was within my limited skills to push it under 7 minutes. Though I make no mention in the textfile, I do not use the HUD to track kills; I used a setup that can be replicated in Doom2.exe.
I'm satisfied with the time though there's considerable room for improvement. There's a number of little mistakes and I'm completely incapable of SR50 which would make a difference due to a substantial amount of running from place to place. I do reach my target time so it's good enough to share.
