Ultimate Doom demos [-complevel 3]

Recommended Posts

wow, very nice, 4 seconds ahead even at the end of e1m6. shame about e1m7, you didn't even seem to do that much wrong besides getting blocked randomly by monsters on every corner and that ate up 10 seconds quickly, heh. I still can't believe the luck I had there in my demo.

Wow thank you ZeroMaster! I must say that I learned a couple of strats from your run :). Yeah that e1m7, I was way too nervous and a lot went wrong. My best was a 1:15 once I think, but I usually get a 1:18/17 if things go well. That 1:12 is really crazy! Imagine what time you can get with a less unlucky e1m5. I'm gonna take some break and play some other games now, not sure if i'm gonna try to improve my time. Maybe someday with a fresh mind and some more practice hehe. But first some level runs probably.

"This is technically a world record since nobody has done a NoMo run of episode 2 or at least submitted one to DSDA or SR.com that I could find"

 

Record on dsda is 2:53 by 4shockblast

It's actually put on the e2m1 page since it isn't the full episode but just a "movie that starts on e2m1"

Is there some reason you aren't doing nightmare? If you want a challenge over UV, that's a better option since your run will be listed under an established category. Pacifist with -fast on will be dumped into "Other".

 

Btw, these aren't "UV-Fast pacifist" since that would actually be the UV fast category (all kills / secrets on -fast) with the added need for pacifist.

I'm not very familiar with the categories since I'm technically not a speedrunner, just someone who tried to do something with a map, but thanks for the info anyway.

 

It's a good point though, since I intend to do that map the Pacifist way there's no reason not to do NM instead, nothing is going to respawn. It's probably still going to be 0:17 at best though.

Something I'm curious for a while but I haven't tested it out. I've heard that monsters on "UV with -Fast" act differently from "NM". The thing I read said that NM also removes the cooldown of monsters attacking or something like that, but I'm actually not sure.

According to Doom Wiki: The fast monsters setting is automatically activated when playing using Nightmare difficulty, although in this skill level they also attack immediately on sight, while in mere fast mode a couple of steps are usually evident before their first attack occurs.

Yes, on Nightmare! monsters attack immediately, hence why Hell Revealed's MAP18: Hard Attack doesn't have any NM demos, not even TAS, despite having a few UV -Fast ones.

"UV Speed (or Pacifist) with -fast monsters" is a category with a right to exist, since in many maps it will play very differently from NM when you have to revisit areas. If that's what you're interested in recording, it makes sense to do so. But when that isn't the case, then there is little reason not to record on NM instead. The steps before attack (link to technical info) difference is minor in most cases.
