First Ever IronEagle Competition: Scientist 2

While recording demos, PRBoom allows you to pause the game without desyncing the demo

Correct so far

and it will not record the pause like Crispy Doom does

Not quite correct.

 

If you "pause" the game in PrBoom+ while recording by opening the main menu then yes, that will not be recorded. However, if you use the actual pause function, which literally gives an on screen message that the game is paused, then that is something that will get recorded as part of the demo.

DEAD: Map11 (prboom+ 2.5.1.3 UV)

noisy_SCI2.zip

 

prboom-plus.exe -file .\SCI2.wad -deh .\SCIvanil\SCI2.DEH -complevel 2 -skill 4 -record noisy_SCI2.lmp -nomusic

 

A good place to die because it's getting late.

 

 


DEAD: Map11 to the mighty mancubus clog.

The first couple maps have some terrifying moments.  That Spiderdemon on Map02, yikes!  It smooths out past that point, up to what I've seen, but yikes.
 

 

 

There were some interesting pieces to some of these maps.  Thanks for the share!

Might have died under a slow crusher in MAP04 after doing really well on that map. MAP02 nearly killed me (7 or 17 HP iirc) but I just survived.

I will consider doing a run for the inaugural month of this competition, partly because there doesn't seem to be an Ironcamel this month.

Rules:

  1. Submissions must include a demo from one of the listed available ports.

[...]

      Doom Retro

Isn't this contradictory?

Are Doom Retro demos incompatible with PRBoom? Or does it not record demos?

Even if they are, it's a little irrelevant because I have the port anyway.

If it doesn't record, then naturally I'll remove that one from the list.

Mysterium tremendum et fascinans...

 

Interesting, tried my luck and, as expected it would appear I'm a magnet for crushers. Dead on MAP02, damn fine player I am.

What difficulty and port? I need to know.

 

I'm not enforcing the categories this month. That said, if this goes another time, I would prefer we listed our categories.

Oh, right, I was dreaming I guess.

Well........

First time that I play this wad, first attempt, completely blind, UV skill, PrBoom+ 2.5.1.4, used the wad and the deh file for the demo.

Result? Survived it in 3:45:56. I almost died in map 20 though.......that was a close one.

PS: My mouse is getting bad.

PS.2: Fuck the BFG replacement....it's so bad that I used it 3 times in the entire wad and I damaged myself with that....what a stupid weapon...

PS.3: Long break after clearing map 01 was because of breakfast -_-

Ok so now we've got Ironcamel and Ironeagle now, what will be next, IronPigeon and IronAss? And then of course i'll follow up with ironphoenix ;)

This is intended as a fill-in for IronCamel, as there's not going to be such a competition this month.

The IronEagle may not be permanent. More likely it will be the beginning of "Eagle things" that I'm taking charge of, even after what happened before.

Ironphoenix doesn't quite make sense. But IronPigeon and IronAss would imply Ironman runs of that month's speedmap compilation. I don't think there's been a Pigeon session in a bit, but with ASS back on, I'd be interested to see how Ironmanning of the ASS wads was received.

I'm great at keeping up with this.

I've updated the spreadsheet after two weeks.

A shoutout to @leodoom85 for surviving the set, and to those who participated.

Because I've been neglecting this, and because I started it lately, I'm setting demo deadlines as November 4th being the last day I'll accept them.

This got more attention than I expected, but I don't believe I'll be hosting another IronEagle next month. Something different will most likely happen.

Thanks Aquila, it was nice to participate in this. This is another alternative to the official ironman which I appreciate for sure.

OK. You're not on par @NaZa with respect to the spreadsheet, buy you're seemingly better than @Alfonzo at keeping up with it. So you can hang your hat on that.

You may still get some more participants. There always seems to be a bit of a flurry in the last few days before the deadline.

That's too bad. I agree with leodoom, it's nice to have another alternative to the DWIL, especially with the flexibility you include in the contest. I had fun taking part in this.

Probably a stupid question but... using ZDoom, is mouselook allowed? "-complevel 2" doesn't seem to disable it and the first post says nothing about it so I'm just wondering.

The rules for this competition are much the same as the DWIronman League.

The rules for DWIL state that freelook must be disabled.

For this, I'm indifferent to it. As long as the demo works properly, I'll accept it.

And for ZDoom, you want to use +compatmode 2, instead of -complevel 2.

By indifferent I understand you allow it, nice because I'm so spoiled by mouselook that I can't play anymore without it, to the point I don't even try the DWIronman League anymore because of how much I suck without mouselook.

 

Well here's my attempt, it was fast: sci2_guineu.zip

Died on Map02 (teleported into a barrel?)

Fell victim to that barrel too, if there was an indication of that trap, i wasn't paying enough attention lol
Blind playthrough, died on MAP02, used ZDoom  2.8.1 with compatibility flags

I wasn't even aware of the barrel.  I think I remember a teleporter destination under a crusher on that same level though.  But what I actually thought was gonna kill everyone wasn't either of those, but the yellow-key Spiderdemon with low ammo.  That is what almost did me in on Map02.

I liken it more to TOTAL (barrel) EXPOSURE. Loads of deaths on one map.

I didn't expect the barrel to claim so many. I expected it to be the Mastermind at the end if it was going to be on MAP02.

That gives us five deaths on MAP02, four to that same barrel and one to the crusher immediately after.

Next month there probably will be another IronEagle, since I've received a few requests for it, but it will be in tandem with a small mapping project I want to host, so it may receive token attention.
