    That's right, everyone's favorite DOOM speedrunning site has been updated with over a hundred new demos in all. Among the featured this week; the first ever E2M8 Tyson run, and a Doom 2 Map09 speedrun trimmed to a mere 1:01. Be sure to check out the other 100 demos as well! That's at the COMPET-N Home Page.

    Well, E2M8 Tyson... that's hard! I find it tricky enough with just a rocketlauncher.
    Heh, maybe one day I'll be fantastic enough to join Compet-N. :)

    Plutonia map08 Nightmare. Now THAT would be impressive. No-one's done it yet.
    Oh, just reminding you, PL08-NM is still available for a ticket to Bali :)))
    See what I mean?

    Someday I think I'll do plutonia map08. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like it is possible(the normal way, and did you know it is possible to do a RJ to the exit?)

    I'd love to see an RJ done on that map as there is no armor, no mega/soulsphere, just a bunch of health and armor potions (some of them in acid).

    Make sure you ask Peo for your tickets when you manage it ;-))

    Great job with E2M8!!! I actually watched the whole thing at normal speed(timedemo runs at approx. 4x normal, so it's useless). Must say, probably the most tedious demo I've seen since Patrick's E4M1. Then again, Tyson isn't about speed, it's about seeing the player complete a level with one hand tied behind his back. No wonder this has always been my favorite "advanced" style. You up for E4M6 and E4M7? :-)

    well, I might be up for e4m7 tyson, I haven't tried it, just watched Adam's cheated run, and the only really hard part would be the cyberdemon. e4m6 would be really hard because the cyberdemon is in that small room, but I wouldn't rule it out, because it is larger than the room in e4m7 if I recall correctly. Maybe I would try just the cyberdemon part in a TAS demo. First I am more likely to try some plutonia nightmare runs, like map04 and map22, but of course also map08. Hey, what is the deal with the tickets for plutonia map08 nightmare? Is there some kind of story behind it?

    I watched Tyson E2M8 on -timedemo as well. It runs at about 37x for me. Took a little over a minute to finish. Everything was a blur of popping and grinding.

    Peo Sjoblom once offered a ticket to Bali for the first player who succeeds in Plutonia MAP08 NightMare. Andreas "Anthe" Kren did try seriously, but he didn't succeed. It's more of a legend now though... I don't think he would pay ;-)

    While the effort that went into the making of the demo is remarkable, and the degree of achievement undeniable, it's not really a demo that is likely to be enjoyed. Over 40 minutes of the same maneuvers against the same opponent is the perfect recipe for a headache. Which I got after watching it. Still, it definitely is a collectible, which I intend to keep.

    Trust me, it is VERY hard, even on UV. I've not managed to get through it myself. The chaingunner tower is tough. I somehow don't think it'll be me who does pl-08 NM, as I die on any level in NM, even Doom2 map01 :)

    I also don't think it'll be me who does pl2 map20 Nightmare either... heh. Private joke there. Gems knows what I'm talking about. ;)

    This is good, as I observe there are a number of threads actually relevant to the subject here and not about black dildos and impotent porn stars.
