Beat Your Own Demos Month [July 4 - Aug 4]

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Mordeth UV Run in 13:57 (old: 18:29). Looong overdue. Some horrible mistakes, but all the maps are faster, so I'm quite happy with that. Total improvement is 25% but most of it comes from MAP06 which I didn't know how to handle back then.

Always love to see peeps playing, watching which routes they take. Even if it's a speedrun and they'll run past 95% of the map ;) 


Saw you struggling with that red key in map03 map05, and I'm left wondering why you insisted on tackling the more difficult approach instead of taking the easy access route?

If there's an easy access, I couldn't find it. I see the red key in a tower and the whole area is surrounded by red key doors, so the only way is via the teleporter?

Err sorry, I meant map05 :)  The red key in the crate room.

Yes, there is! Damn! The beauty of discovering new things in a 1997 WAD... I "insisted" because I thought that was the only way... There's also one more thing in the later crate area which I partially climbed twice, but I only needed to do so once. Linedef 2958, tag 36 opens up a little "gate" which I should have checked. Another speedrun? Maybe (At this point you probably don't even need my answer as you know already that I'm only human and I miss the obvious too)

Icarus by TeamTNT

Map05 (Flipside by Mark Snell) UV Stroller in 0:29 ic05s029.zip (Old time: 0:38) Uses the "new" route, though I'm not sure it helps so much in a stroller.

Map10 (Bridge by Ty Halderman) UV Stroller in 0:11 ic10s011.zip (Old time: 0:28) Less sloppy, and uses the same exit method as my Map02 stroller earlier in this thread. But with the UV Pacifist at 0:04, this ought to be quicker.


Eye of the Beholder II by Jon Landis

Map04 (Entropy) UV Speed in 0:05 eob4-005.zip (Old time: 0:07) - weapon-change avoidance.

Map04 (Entropy) UV Pacifist in 0:06 eob4p006.zip (Old time: 0:09) - run and hope.

Map04 (Entropy) Nightmare! Speed in 0:05 eob4n005.zip (Old time: 0:07) - exploiting the "turrets".


Nuts by B.P.R.D.

Nightmare! Pacifist in 0:42 nutsnp42.zip (old time: 0:52) Best so far; I might revisit this one, as I'm not convinced it should be slower than NM Speed.

too1337.wad by Jeff 'The Last Doomer' 'CMB' Earls

E1M1 UV Speed/Pacifist in 0:28

(Old time: 0:35 from 2006) Exploits two different invalid tags and zombification. Yes, this is a weird one, and with all due immodesty I shall call it a spectacular new route. :p The zip also contains a 0:32 on the old route (one invalid tag and zombification), and the txt features a wall of text, for those interested.



World of Deth - From Heaven to Hell by Morten Stromsvold

Map30 (The Lost Kingdom) UV Pacifist in 0:17

(Old time: 0:18 from 2007) Slight route tweak to encourage the cybers to hit Romero a little quicker and more accurately.



Revolution! (TVR!.wad) by Thomas van der Velden

Map07 (The Valley of Death) Nightmare! 100% Secrets in 0:39

(Old time: 1:25 from 2002, recorded with Legacy) Nothing spectacular, but it seemed wrong that my ancient and glideless Legacy demo should still be the "record" in this category.

Obituary MAP31 UV Max in 3:07 (old: 4:41, 33% improvement). A silly max.


MM2 MAP09 Pacifist (link) in 4:19 (old: 23:20, 81% improvement). Now, that's some improvement.

Face the Pit by Brian Dean

Map03 Nightmare! Pacifist/Speed in 1:17

(Old time: 1:25 from 2011) One of my more popular demos (downloaded 172 times from the forum alone). The lack of visual clues makes it hard to run the right direction through the first half of the void. I fumble the exit switch, as always.



Nightlife by Tom Farmer

Map01 UV Speed in 0:10 (Old time: 0:12 from early 2019) This was meant to be Pacifist, but an accidental wake-up shot hits an imp.


Map01 UV Pacifist in 0:11 (Old time: 0:12 from early 2019)



Perdition's Gate by Alex Mayberry

Map01 UV Tyson in 2:53

(Old time: 4:38 from 2002, recorded in Legacy) Sloppy improvement over my first Tyson run ever. Oddly enough, I found it hard to improve at all over my UV Speed from the same demopack.

amigoba pacifist in 0:06.97 (old: 0:07). My favorite superseding of UV-Speed with pacifist. :)


Some more unusual submissions that are in the spirit of the month I think, but up to kraf to give points. I recorded lv21 Stroller several years ago before later realizing it was invalid because I used vert mouse with regular walk instead of -turbo 50. It turned out to be a pain to redo, so I'm only now using this as an opportunity to get around to it. I can hardly even match the same time as back then, though, so I'm only going to post a matching time unfortunately, so:


Doom 2 map 21 True Stroller in 0:45 (old: 0:45).


I decided to check my other Strollers and found two more trivial ones with the same issue, so I redid them too.

NEWBONUS.WAD Stroller in 0:02.66 (old: 0:02.71).

Spider_1 Stroller in 0:06.34 (Also Reality, old: 0:06.40).


All old invalid Strollers included in the zips, so these demos should replace my old ones.
