Have you ever wanted to post a demo and wasn't sure which thread to use? Did you record a megawad demo and couldn't find an appropriate thread going 6 pages back? Here's a small list of the prominent threads.
- General purpose threads:
Miscellaneous demos 2: Anything you can't place elsewhere goes here. Consider creating new threads for new/unlisted megawads instead of posting here.
A sequel to the original Misc. thread we've managed to managed to max out by rampant posting, sort of (so don't use it anymore).
TAS (tools-assisted) demos: Post all TAS demos here, don't use existing "regular" threads. Dedicated standalone threads for highprofile TASes are welcome.
First attempt demos [never played the map before]: Put your FDAs here - preferably even for wads with existing threads.
Failed demo attempts: Fairly obvious. For showing off your noteworthy failed and foiled efforts.
Nomonster speedrunning: When you feel like showing the world how good you are at empty Doom! Place -nomo's for megawads with existing threads at your own discretion. Proof-of-concept demos are particularly welcome even in the regular threads.
New Stroller demos: For the peaceful walkers among us.
Rare kills: Whenever you feel like you got a rare RNG constelation and killed something in an unusual way, like that lost soul in one SG shot or that sargeant in 6 pistol shots.
Spechits, Reject and Intercepts Overflow Lists: A niche thread for the unique moments when you encounter a puzzling desync (or you want to check if a map is prone to them) or a rare crash, or things get trippy with all ghosts bug. In-detail explanation included in the OP.
-solo-net [1-player coop] demos: Singleplayer with multiplayer things. When Doom is just too easy for you, or you feel UV respawn tyson reality got too mundane. solonet/fakenet demos can be posted to according megawad threads though.
Rocket/Plasma/BFG Jumping demos: Doom's own Defrag-style demos. Intended for advanced ports (Zdaemon, Skulltag, ZDoom, possibly more), a bit of a niche thing.
