TNT Evilution UV Max Movie in 3:29:47

Recommended Posts

I feel like this run deserves a new thread, as it is a new max record for an IWAD. I started to learn this run about a week ago, and have put probably about 20ish hours into learning the maps and doing the episodic runs. Yesterday I posted a failed run in the failed demo thread of where I was telefragged on Last Call during the IoS fight, I almost wanted to give up, but after a good nigt's sleep I resumed attempts and within the first few tries of the day, I managed to secure this time, and I almost died at the end again...

I'd like to thank Never_Again for giving me some very helpful advice and info on the run, and props to him for finishing the first movie in just over 4 hours. Evilution isn't that difficult, but its difficulty comes in the length of the run. This time is most certainly improvable, and I will probably come back to it at some point in the future if no one else does, but for now, here is my new max run of TNT Eviltion!

Also, I'm thinking of trying a Plutonia max movie next, but I'm not sure yet. If anyone has any other movie recommendations I'd be glad to hear them.

Maybe Alien Vendetta next? :o


I wonder how long a D2ALL Max of AV would be.

Nice one B)
Plutonia's certainly beatable, but I wouldn't blame you for moving onto some shorter runs for a while :P

Congratulations, Cybr!

Well well well, it took you half as long as I expected, but at least I guessed the final time to the minute. ;)

Surprising to see your MAP21 time slower so much; of course I must have played it a lot more than you did since I like it a lot more than most players. OTOH, the diff on MAP18 and MAP27 made me wince. Well, on the bright side the whole run should be much more watchable now, with all that lameness eliminated. :D

As for recommendations for your next run ... I'd love to see a D2ALL UV Max of Armadosia, but I perfectly realize it would not be humanly possible without re-recording. The combined times of the fastest 22 UV Maxes on DSDA add up to about 315 minutes; this extrapolates to eight hours for the whole thing. One day, after all the bugs have been fixed (and I believe I got all the level-breakers out of the way already), I may do it myself.

Perhaps Doom 2 Reloaded, Cleimos 2 or Wonderful Doom would be more realistic candidates.
D2RELOAD would probably be comparable to your MMmax,
CLEIM20 has only 28 SP maps and many of them quite short; the gameplay is an acquired taste, though, just ask vdgg. ;).
WD13 would be four separate movies, which makes it easier to record. The maps are pretty long (nowhere near Armadosia length, but still), OTOH they are all quite easy until E4.

Don't even think about doing Cleimos 2, spare your brain!
I would like to see new 2002ado E1 speedrun...

Brain, like everything else, needs work in order not to deteriorate. ;)
And it would be more interesting to see a new ground being broken than an old one retreaded.

IIRC Cyber confirmed on his stream before that MAP21 is one of the few TNT maps he dislikes.

Thanks guys, I'm currently looking at Plutonia Max stuff, and I may do it next if I can get good enough. As for the various suggesstions, honestly I haven't played any of those wads, aside from a few maps from hellbound, heh. But I wrote a few down that looked like they might be cool. I still would like to do Memento Mori 2 UV Speed / Max sometime in the near future as well.
Also, I uploaded my run to youtube, if anyone's interested

Cleimos 2 is not very popular, so I doubt many people would be interested. Personally I find the idea awesome (no more ammo problems on certain maps), but a few maps, like map16, are just pain, pain, pain. No-one mentioned Icarus? In less than 3 hours :)
