Just a question for everyone, what's your most admired demo of your own? My best to me so far would be my Scythe Episode 1 Nomonsters speedrun that I posted lately.

I answered 3 years ago, and from today's perspective:
- those demos suck, except m232t725
- generally I didn't record anything spectacular since then
- I really don't know how to assess stuff like my over 40 minute Tysons, mm2 MAP29 for example. Except for j4rio, no-one records these nowadays, they are usually very slow, but I wouldn't be able to record them myself now (so I admire my patience then). So you may watch these at your own risk :)

Aside from the demos I already mentioned in that thread vdgg linked to (I still think they're pretty nice btw):

- 2002: A Doom Odyssey E1 UV-Speed of course, vdgg's and Kyle's responses made me put a lot of effort into it.

- Arch-Vile Jump MAP02 UV-Speed, termrork couldn't beat it even on NM, which is easier.

- Darkwave 32 UV-Max, yes it sucks but for me this map is very hard even when not rushing.

- Memento Mori 2 MAP22 UV-Max, very painful map in this category.

I'm rather happy with my map 29 trick on Doom 2 Done Turbo, though I don't really feel that the run itself is fully up to my current standards (especially maps 1-16).

Other than that, here's a few demos that I consider to be either well optimized or fairly lucky:

D2TWID Map 7 UV-Max in 1:03.

Plutonia 2 Map 15 Pacifist in 0:06.

TNT Map 17 Pacifist in 0:08.

Rebirth Map 06 UV-Max in 0:35.

Some of my better demos were also made for demo packs that have not been finished yet.

I only have very few demos out, and I'm not proud of any of them. But I do hold a record in Plutonia 2 map25 UV-speed. So I'll go for that one ;)

edit: the pacifist one is faster

pacifist demo

I've only a few demos out there,of but I wouldn't call any of them particularly special. I'm certainly fond of three:

mm07-524 is cool for me because it really shows the amount of effort I put into it. When I first ran that map, I hit something like a 6:45. I grinded the ell out of it and somehow found a way to negotiate the maze in a pretty darn efficient way and cut 35 seconds off of Xit's original time. Now, I'm not fool and I know this could be broken easily, but it has stood for a pretty long time and I still like to go back and watch it.

sc06-107 is probably my best demo in general. There's very little I don't like about it and I think it's probably the hardest of mine to beat there is... not that it couldn't be beat, but still.

sc11-140had its guts ripped and torn by stx-Vile, but darn it if I didn't get a real confidence boost in beating a slightly harder-than-the-norm map in a record time originally. Plus, something about being topped by stx-Vile that makes it feel somehow special.

As far as demos with monsters, I'd say my 1monster MAP05 tyson in 8:23 (found on DSDA).

Without monsters, I'd have to say av09o029 and av23o121 (both are on DSDA).

Don't expect to be too impressed by these, as I'm not a great speedrunner.

My No Rest for the Living UV Speed SS is probably my own favorite. And out of the individual levels for no rest, MAP03 in :55 would probably be my own favorite.

As for other WADs, I haven't put enough effort into anything to call them great.

Not too many. Plutonia ep 1 max took me probably the longest to do, in terms of hours spent.

Oh and for Doomdaniel, I've beaten your Scythe Episode 1 run. It is now a sub 3:00 run, and I even did the run before I found your's. Hehe, you had quite a good run except the mistakes :)

Did you check the nomonsters speedrunning thread again and/or DSDA? I now have a new one in 2:37. Thank you for your compliments, though. :)

I'm sure you could probably beat the one I made in 2:37 because it's still loaded with tons of mistakes.

Lol, that's not true. Your ScytheX MAP04 max in 1:36 is excellent, as well as your PL2 maxes for MAP13 and MAP27. Those are just 3 I can name off the top of my head.

So far (22 demos) I haven't made any runs without some significant mistakes, however in terms of scale and epicness I'm a little proud of my Jenesis map 26 run. It's long and got some pretty hard set pieces, but would still be a piece of cake for the top guys of course. It's more about me getting through in one piece than getting a good time.

I've also adopted The Rebirth as my project to practise UV-Fast (actually I wanted to do UV-Maxes since the maps are nice and short and not too hard but as I couldn't beat Skepticist's times I decided to attempt to fill the UV-Fast niche instead). Of course I found most of them super hard but I'm a little proud that so far I made all of the first 11 (except for 8; 7 should be up soon and I'm working on 8). I think it's excellent exercise for improving your combat skills, especially reaction times and I definitely think that I'm better than 2 years ago. The hardest one so far was map 4 and then 9 but I bungled up 9 a bit.

I watched quite a few of my 2011-2014 demos and let me correct myself: pf15-232 is really not bad.

The only demo I'm really proud of is the first ever (?) instant flatface glide demonstration (here it is). My modesty has completely faded out when I made it. lol
P.S: Geez, 2 years have passed since then.

Most definitely my best demo ever is my plutonia uv-max TAS speedrun in 57 minutes. There are some mistakes in the episode 1 part, but I don't really care about that. The demo took more effort to make than you can imagine (more than 6 months of intensive recording, with often 100+ trials for many segments).

If I ever manage to finish Hell Revealed MAP11 uv-max in under 15 minutes, then that will probably be my favorite non-TAS demo of mine.

Just watched those. Surprised no one bothered to improve them. I guess I might have to do it now.
