Miscellaneous demos (part 1) [please post in part 3 instead]

Well that's certainly an overly ambitious feat, when taking into consideration both the difficulty and playing time, I'm curious to know how you dealt with the inner chapel fight on 02 - The one with rows of seats and a megasphere laying at the end as a sign of an impending bloodbath, that one in particular seemed quite ridicolous with the addition of AV's and no cover provided. Same could be said for the blue key area if the player didn't anticipate the trap.

Have a failed run of 01 myself but don't have the desire to upload it at the moment, got around 1/2 then died rather embaressingly, I was really just pissing around having no thorough practice beforehand. 01 mainly tests your ability to weave in and out of hordes within the very congested surroundings making it my favourite map, while the inexorable hordes are ludicrous which could easily create a repetitive experience, the lack of space within the main building keeps the action constantly hectic.

Eh, fun slaughter WAD but had potential to be alot better.

I don't really mean to trash the wad (i just felt like complaining about something), but after multiple failed attempts on a long wad you start to count the number of hours spent neurotically replaying the same sequence and wonder if there are better ways to spend life, lol.

The part with the row of seats: just run to the star, then run all the way back out to the hall before everyone warps (I think the warp lines are w1 or something so they soon stop warping).

the part with a key in a pit and enemies slowly warp + 2 viles at end: you can strafe 50 out the door and leave them warping to deal with later

Lots of the traps have exploits like that (when you start in the center of surrounding walls that lower when you walk over lines, just walk over the furthest lines, not the close ones).

Nostril Caverns max in 151:31 (2:31:31)

Last night I died with 2 cybers left on the highest mountain, just before the exit switch, lols (the exit would've been 152:xx, so oh well).

UV-max of axe2.wad in 9:19

I did a speed run in 0:29. I remembered the Axe series from years ago. I think I played them in 2000 or so.

yeah, the axe series is pretty good. I think I'm gonna do maxes of all 8 of them.

Holy crap...was this demo recorded in one sitting? I almost fell asleep half-way through the demo. :) I mean, amazing playing, but damn, just too long. The beginning hexadecagonal area is just too repetitive, except for the cyberdemon rooms.

A nice thing about Doom demos is that you can watch them in chunks and use fast forward, etc.

Even with that, it was just too repetitive. After a while, you just get tired of using "+" and "*" all the time.

Edit: I'm not knocking TimeofDeath's play, which was sublime...just the map.

Fixed that for you. ;)


Well, which serious demo watcher doesn't use prboom/glboom+ to watch demos? I can't even imagine my demo-watching life without the efficient launcher and the other capabilities like speeding up/slowing down, pausing, time-skipping, perspective-changing, etc. I have over 300 megabytes of demos (just demos, not wads) alone on my HD from years of collecting...watching that shit without prboom would be a nightmare.

I liked nostrils, it's a fun endurance challenge. Such repetitiveness doesn't make for super interesting demos, but playing it is a different thing, although I have to admit in my own playthrough I dozed off multiple times past the 30 minutes mark, and didn't even get further than the big lowering pillar with the invul sphere (~70min).

I use Doom and Boom whenever possible. One advantage from this is that I can then be aware of, or report, any incompatibilities I find. I resort to PrBoom+ if the demo requires it, to check on parts of demos or if I need extra data.

I "watched" all the Nostril demos, although I must admit I left the screen quite a few times on some of them. Fast forward may be useful, but one can also go do some housecleaning or the like when a demo takes too long :p

The first one I watched, Anima's FDA, was the most fun, and I watched it all the way, as it was spontaneous and got him pretty far nonetheless.

Armadosia map01 UV-max in 5:35.

A very old demo. It`s more or less OK, but surely could be a bit faster.

Demos for drain.wad NM-speed + NM-max whatever. Only watch if you're desperate for 1:13 of entertainment. This level is not worth looking at.

Well, ToD... If I publish my demos at the WADs forum and give temporary SpeedyShare links, this usually means I don't want them in the archives... But it's OK. I attach text files corresponding to my 2 demos for Eternal Memories.

Oh, a lovely AV 6:58 demo BTW, I'll watch the newest one soon!
