Icarus by TeamTNT

Map14 (Fortress of Evil by Robin Patenall)

UV Speed/Pacifist in 1:11

Old time: 1:13 (2006)

Didn't spend long on this, which is probably fairly obvious. "one of my more overlooked demos (trick/route not used in two later movie runs)."

Build by Tyler "picklehammer" Pantella

Nightmare! Pacifist in 0:15!!

Old time: 1:04 (in 2004, with Boom)

Wow. I can't believe this happened. Probably my luckiest demo ever. Really. See the txt and watch with the walkcam.

Nukemine Episode 1 UV-Speed in 5:23 (66 second improvement)

nukemineall-523.zip

I believe I saved time on all but one level, the biggest one being map 3 because of an accidental 30 second lock in skip, which I wasn't prepared for so I freaked out big time.

STRAIN by The Alpha Dog Alliance

Map21 (Maintenance), UV Speed/Pacifist in 0:04

(Old time: 0:06 - well, this was my Stroller from 2005, but it was also the current Speed and Pacifist record, so I think this counts!) Getting it below 5 seconds took some effort. This is 0:04.97.

SKULKEEP by Marcus Malden

UV Pacifist in 1:06

(Old time: 1:22, from 2004) No route changes, but a little less cowardice.

Thy Family Consumed by Eeva Marin

Nightmare! Pacifist in 0:33

(Old time: 0:35 from 2011) Nothing special. I checked for impse glides, but no dice.

Are you passing demos recorded last year for this competition? If so, I don't think it's fair. I have myself a few demos which are faster than the DSDA records but I'm going to re-record them if I want points, not just write a .txt.

 

EDIT. Mistake, please read the posts below

M2ALL Episode 2 UV-Speed in 7:58 (48 second improvement)

m2all-758.zip

Plenty of time left to save, but the strats required for that just seem like they would be horrible.

Are they all old? The post asked for 2 points although there are 5 posted in that thread, so I assumed 2 of them are new.

No, it's me checking one particular demo and its date stamp (which is easy to change anyway). Didn't pay attention to the numbers. Sorry, my bad! Though this way of posting entries is not the most obvious in the world.

It would be nice if you noted which demos, and how much the improvement was, as per the rules, cyber :^)

The rules also asked for the relevant demos to be posted to this thread, which would help keep things much clearer for everyone and save kraflab in particular some effort. Obviously any demo posted here (or any "Beat ...Month") would belong equally well in some other forum thread.

 

STRAIN by The Alpha Dog Alliance

Map20 UV Speed in 0:24

(Old time: 0:58 from 2005; well, this was a UV Pacifist/Speed, but still the Speed record, and it was arguable whether it was truly Pacifist in any case) Using the same route idea as in vdgg's episode run and in my nomo. I tried for a while to get this to work with archie splash damage (and thus a true and unarguable Pacifist), but no luck. It is yet to be established whether that might work at all.

A couple of more recent demos beaten:

 

Aboo4 by Bob Reganess

Map01 Nightmare! Speed/Pacifist in 0:24

(Old time: 0:26 from 2018) I noticed a route cock-up soon after recording that one, and use the improvement here.

Base32 by Caleb "Radromity" Sizemore

UV Pacifist/Speed in 0:17

(Old time: 0:22 from 2012) Same map-smashing error exploit, but more effort put in to dodge demons. I suppose that back in 2012 I naively assumed the author would soon be uploading a fix and thus leave any demos orphaned.

JCM1 Episode 1 UV-Speed in 14:13 (61 second improvement)

jcm1e1-1413.zip

It seems like I typo'd my old runs demo filename as 15:13 when the time was actually 15:14, because the demo said 13 I ended up writing 13 everywhere else too.

 

And the sequel:

JCM2-16 Episode 2 UV-Speed in 7:14 (55 second improvement)
