The DooMed Speed Demos Archive returns!

Recommended Posts

Use Doom 2 as the iwad and Plutonia as a pwad* -- or alternatively, in prBoom+, keep Plutonia as the iwad and add -complevel 2 to the command line. 

 

 

*Some oldschool Final Doom demos were recorded that way. You can tell because 'DooM2 v1.9' will be listed as the engine rather than 'DooM2 v1.9f'.

If you use my autoloading patterns, then all older demos will have the right loading of iwad/pwad to avoid desyncs. Newer demos will also work correctly if they use the Prb+ extended format. Even those that don't will probably work since I believe most people nowadays don't record Final Doom demos with -complevel 2.

what source port do i need to use to play pluvdemo.zip a demo pack for plutonia

in case of anders johnsen's demo it says nothing about a source port, so the demo should play back fine in PrBoom+, because evidently it was recorded using DOSBOX. That's my guess at least. If that doesn't work then feel free to ask again.

 

EDIT: Ugh... didn't even see there was another page that already had answers... nevermind then...

Can I request that you add my ev23 solo-net demo to the DSDA, because that is the true max for the level as it's not possible to finish the last 10 monsters.

 

Meaning it should still qualify as a max.

The update on September 2nd my demo for Doom 2 the way Id did map 27 was added to map 25 records. It was my fault as I forgot to change in the level # in the text file to 27. Once again I apologize for any inconvenience.

40 demos this week.

 

Bob9001: I don't think that should count as a max. Yes, those monsters aren't accessible, which would make it valid for a normal max, but you're playing co-op, and the monsters are inaccessible because you're missing a player. So, it's neither comparable to a regular run or a co-op run. I can still add it if you'd like, but it will be under 'Other'.

 

NeilK: Fixed. Thanks!
