Following on from Never_Again's ultra detailed summary of /incoming/pwads, I've done another zipfile of all the demos. As before, I've renamed wrongly labeled demos, corrected some textfiles, put in a directory structure, etc. Link to the pack:
The only bit I got confused with was what to do with all the regular nm submissions that happen to have 100% secrets in the run. Trouble is that Adam has been totally inconsistent in this. Look at the mm records page for instance. For instance mm02 has an nm record, no nm100s record, even though the nm record in question has 100% secrets, and these are avoidable secrets. Or look at mm14. The nm record is 2:14, the nm100s record is 3:23, both demos have 100% secrets, as will any demo on this level by definition. Going to mm30 we only have one record, an nm100s run, precisely the opposite situation to mm02.
There doesn't seem to be a consistent rule to apply. My guess is that Adam simply took the demos in whatever category they were submitted, and didn't worry about whether they should be reassigned to nm100s or nm, or whether the secrets in the level were avoidable, or indeed anything besides whether they were valid demos for nm or nm100s.
Anyway, these are the rules I ended up going with:
* Demo has < 100% secrets, it's nm.
* Demo has 100% secrets and secrets are unavoidable, it's both nm and nm100s. However even though this theoretically means two entries in the database, whenever this happened on an iwad demo Adam would just link the regular nm demo. So I didn't rename any demos.
* Demo has 100% secrets, which are avoidable, it's whatever category the demo was submitted in. That does mean the same demo can be submitted twice, although nobody's done that in the recent pwad uploads and I'm not inclined to worry about doing it for them. My personal philosophy on this is until there is a difference between an nm run and an nm100s run the latter category is superfluous, so all demos should go to nm first even if they're 100% secrets.
So in the end I haven't ended up renaming any of the mm or requiem nightmare files. But anyone wants to throw counter arguments my way go for it.
Oh yes. Also I updated the last iwad zipfile to include Xit's uncorrupted pn06-105. This doesn't include some later submissions though.
