recording demos for wads?

Recommended Posts

with modern source ports (skulltag is my choice), is it still possible to record demos of maps in your wad, then place them into the wad to automatically play as the original iwads do in vanilla doom, during the title sequences? if it is, how can i do it? thanks.

Yes, most ports allow demo recording, however each engine (often different versions of the same port) are incompatible with each other. I wouldn't recommend including new demos inside the wad file unless you're certain the demo format isn't going to change (or live with demos desyncing later on). But generally, all you have to do is record the demo and insert it with the lump name that corresponds to the demo you want to replace (DEMO1, DEMO2, DEMO3, etc).

ZDoom-based ports are particularly bad about demo format changes.
