For the seventh time on Doom Power, the First-Try Demo Contest is being held . Everybody, who wants, I suggest that you would take part in this event. FDC is a contest, in which the winner is the player, who'll be able to finish map first (complete it) - all players will play unknown map, which will be same for all participants, without cheats, at the same time - recording a demo. In this particular contest, the demo should be compatible with final doom executable (-complevel 4 for prboom+).
Map format - vanilla(Final Doom). Competition will take place on July, 2nd, at 15 o'clock UTC. Participants can use those source-ports, which are compatible with Plutonia. Before starting (approx. 1 hour before the beginning) I will upload a password-protected archive, and in an hour I will declare it's password, then participants immediately are to begin game(archive will contain bat files for faster start). During demo recording, it is forbidden to stop for a long time, to put game on a pause, and to go to a main menu - it is required that all participants will play fair. Also, any TAS are forbidden as well. Time gap between total time of the demo and the demo upload time must not exceed 5 minutes, otherwise participant will receive a penalty or even will be disqualified for wasting too much time. After recording demo, all immediately must pack their demo in a .zip-archive, and name that file with their (participants') nickname, and send them to me using following form:
Wad with map and bat files will be archived in a rar archive.

PS At this time, level was made by me, and tested by Memfis(big kudos for that).
