I just made a wad-someone sent me a demo

Recommended Posts

he said to zip it up and include it when I upload to newstuff, I thought demos weren't allowed. Which one of us is confused?

You are allowed to include external demos( .lmp files) or internal lumps with wads that are submitted to 3dgamers ftp.

Demos by themselves were once allowed, I think it has been awhile since someone uploaded one... perhaps that is frowned upon now... I'd contact the archive admin if you have questions outside the FAQs and READMEs.

The archive's rules mention "demos" twice, but meaning different things:

4. No demos or partially completed megawads. If you're not done with it, it doesn't belong in an archive.

This means demo versions of unfinished projects (and there's some leeway on this - if it is a set of fully finished maps, it may very well be OK; the idea is to keep out half-finished maps, etc.).

3. There is no active "LMP" (demos) area. Don't upload demo files here--they will be deleted.

So, demos (as in recordings) are indeed rejected except, as Opulent says, when included with a wad that is being uploaded.
