Thanks for these. Annoying to record they may have been as you say, but very pleasant to watch. MAP01 Tyson: I didn't remember they changed that imp gib animation, cool. MAP05 Max: love it for the monsters. And excellent commentary. I share your not-so-positive view of the maps.

Thanks for the comment. :)

Map 2 seemed like it'd be annoying at first, but it wasn't so bad after taking a break from it; the maps are a pretty unpleasant casual experience for me simply because they aren't very interesting and usually end abruptly, so when I first wanted to record demos for this, my experience was colored by my casual opinion of the maps. As a speedrun, map 2 is pretty fine UV-Max. Map 3 was the one that was actually not very fun even speedrun-wise, and 5 was actually pretty fun to blast through despite the luck factor. Nomos on 3 and 4 were definitely kind of annoying but short.

Hitscanner gib animation was also changed significantly; for whatever reason, they burn to charred gibs, which looks kind of cool, but it also looks confusing if it happens after a berserk punch.

3 years in the making, and finally I've completed my demopak for JOW.wad. Thank god. The only levels I didn't include were the ones I already uploaded to DSDA simply to beat DidierTranber's times.

Four Color Map 1 UV-Max in 2:16.
Map 1 Nomo in 0:31.57.
Map 2 Pacifist in 0:25.
Map 2 Nomo in 0:11.97.
Map 3 UV-Max (with -solo-net) in 0:48.
Map 3 Nomo in 0:23.57.
Map 4 UV-Speed in 0:18.
Map 4 Nomo in 0:13.77.

The last two levels of this set (maps 3 and 4) are too obnoxiously hard for normal max as far as I could tell.

Cute end, you had to make sure that rocket would hit him. :) Great to see some demos for this level, I love it for the unconventional ideas everywhere. There is also strong.wad from the same author, never managed to finish that one (tight balance at the start and very confusing).

Yeah, cool to see those mueller03 demos, I just played that the other day.

Here's a second exit max for Europa 2 in 18:35.

I say max because I got 100% secrets, but it's possible to get 150%. Don't know what the rules are about that, but I didn't bother getting the megasphere secret because it's really annoying and I got 100% anyway.

Your text file states your reasoning:

I didn't get the megasphere secret because it's really annoying (standing there for a minute waiting for an archvile to blast you)

I won't make any statements about the validity of a demo, but it may interest you to know that the secrets can be reached by an awkward strafejump from the raised bar in front of the switch, to the inner ledge (sector 430 to sector 426) - no archvile jumps are needed.

Heh, cool to see ToD getting to Alm's ancient masterpieces. Will be waiting for your demo of Europa 3 as well.

Thanks a lot RjY, that method is way better. I did another Europa 2 max in 18:08 with 150% secrets. I'll let the other guys worry about the hardcore optimization stuff. :)

Demonologist, cool, I haven't got to Europa 3 yet in my /idgames journey, but I noticed there are some recent demos there with low times, so I probably won't be recording on it.

max in 11:09
speed in 0:24

Dec'13 was the last time when I had tried to record something. Because this map is quite tricky (=bitchybalanced), now I decide to share this (shit) as DSDA table-filler.

Here is a set of demos for four oldschool WADs from 1995-2000 and one puzzle WAD from last August that looks like the other four but plays much worse.

  • BUHBUH18.WAD (1998) - UV Max in 5:21
  • GENOCIDE.WAD (1995) - UV Max in 10:31
  • LOTTADM.WAD (2000) - UV Max in 9:47
  • TEUTONIC.WAD (1995):
    - MAP01 UV Max in 7:27
    - MAP02 UV Max in 3:50
  • ZZSKETCH.WAD (2014):
    - MAP01 UV Speed in 0:54 and Pacifist in 1:02
    - MAP02 UV Speed in 2:20
    - MAP31 UV Speed in 1:49
Of the five, GENOCIDE and LOTTADM are the best by far. Details in the TXTs, as always.
