  1. Notable 2017 demos

    Indeed, Veinen's new demos are always a pleasure for me to see, and many of his later records aren't any less skillful, solid, hard-to-beat than typical runs mentioned in "Notable 201X demos" threads. As Ocelot pointed out during the Golden Cyber Award 2003 discussion, watchers are somewhat biased toward demos for "prestigious" maps. I knew beforehand that my HR22 UV Max will get more attention (even though it's slower and cheaper) than my Hellbound MAP12 UV Max. One of Veinen's notable demos is his Darken2 MAP10 maxrun. As @vdgg assumed in his d210-642 textfile (November 5, 2010), "a "perfect" human player (say, Vile in his prime) should strive for a time of 6:15 or lower". But Veinen got 4:38 :)
  2. Notable 2017 demos

    Indeed, that year was full of uncountable outstanding demos by many of the best speedrunners ever, including dozens of really solid records from IMO the strongest newcomer, @TheV1perK1ller (such as CC121527, C229-744, HB191246, ND091117 etc). Some other superior-to-Compet-N-quality optimization efforts are Scythe MAP09 UV Max in 1:12 by @kmc and MAP30 in 12:20 by @Ancalagon. Also thanks for appreciating my sloppiest demo of 2017, HR22-451 :)
  3. Scythe demos [-complevel 2]

    MAP29 NM100S in 2:55.66. Credits to @4shockblast for his 5:04 run which sealed the ultimate IL Nightmare hole in Scythe's table. I got 3:00.14 in just 4 hours, but improving it took a far harder work. My final successful attempt is the funniest one (especially in terms of near-death scenes in the final third). ss29-255.zip
  4. Nomonster speedrunning

    Great job to @doomdaniel95 for redoing his old desyncing CC12 nomo. This utterly fantastic XXL-map by @Use is one of the levels I want to study really detailedly :) My run is inspired by doomdaniel95's statements from his cc12o423 textfile: Community Chest MAP12 nomo in 3:48 (would be around 3:54 without my new mini-tricks). cc12o348.zip
  5. The DooMed Speed Demos Archive returns!

    Both of Community Chest MAP12 nomos by @doomdaniel95 desync. Haven't yet found which WAD version (and/or port setting) do they require. Also, Doom 2 In Name Only MAP12 UV Max by @Revved plays back with d2ino_b6.wad. Also, FC19's nochance NM100S is TAS. Also, the Eternal collection table mostly lists gross nomonsters times instead of exiting times. Level Exiting time Gross time MAP01 1:48 1:56 MAP02 3:33 3:39 MAP03 4:48 4:57 MAP04 6:08 6:21 MAP05 5:30 5:39 MAP06 2:49 2:56 MAP08 1:52 2:03 MAP09 2:34 2:40 MAP10 2:57 3:06 MAP11 6:08 6:17 MAP12 9:01 9:09 MAP13 0:08 0:13 MAP14 3:15 3:19 MAP15 8:23 8:28 MAP16 2:19 2:23 MAP17 1:43 1:49 MAP18 2:41 3:02 MAP19 4:21 4:30 MAP20 8:51 9:00 MAP21 1:57 2:02 MAP22 2:46 2:53 MAP23 7:21 7:26 MAP24 10:05 10:14 MAP25 10:44 10:52 MAP29 5:24 5:35 MAP31 9:47 10:11 MAP32 4:53 4:59
  6. Memento Mori demos [-complevel 2]

    MAP28 Nightmare in 4:56 :) Time is not flawless, but its digits are a funny remix of Istvan's UV Speed record (5:46). mm28n456.zip
  7. Hellbound demos [-complevel 2]

    TheV1perK1ller said: Excellent work! You are significantly stronger/speedier than most other greatest keyboarders, and your killer records are one of my main inspiration sources. I decided to try optimizing the first truly epic-length Hellbound map some more. This high-tech monsterpiece is similar to my beloved MM2 MAP28 in several ways (and in fact even longer). Certainly the most challenging (even if not the most "prestigious") of all minute barriers I have broken in my first 13 years of speedrunning. So, MAP12 UV Max in 9:55. HB12-955.ZIP
  8. What are your silly monster nicknames?

    In 90s (when I didn't know the monster names) I thought that imps are "monkeys", cacodemons are "dragon heads" and knights/barons are "rams" ("барон ада" = "баран ада").
  9. The DooMed Speed Demos Archive returns!

    My Hellbound MAP14 NM100S time is actually 2:24. I mentioned that "2:30" as PAR :) Also, Rayzik's MAP27 Max record is 20:53.
  10. Hellbound demos [-complevel 2]

    Some lucky Halloween sessions resulted in Nightmare runs through two grand cities: MAP14 NM100S in 2:24. MAP24 NM Speed in 1:56. hb14_24.zip
  11. Hell Revealed demos [-complevel 2]

    My 150th demo, HR22 UV Max in 4:51 :) HR22-451.ZIP
  12. The DooMed Speed Demos Archive returns!

    TheV1perK1ller's 7:47 UV Max for NDCP2 MAP14 requires NDCP2V2.
  13. Notable 2016 demos

    Some recent fruits of humankind's progress: Jario's AV201513 -- a new pinnacle of his aggression mastery; Yousuf Anik's AR08-948 -- another outstandingly fast-paced long-distance maxrun; 4shockblast's QUAD1005 -- 900+ attempts resulted in a strong, daring, nearly perfectionistic de-monstr-ation. Gurlugon's ES32-257 -- so much faster than the C-N runs and Peo's TAS NM run; Ancalagon's SU05-545 -- for comparison, Okuplok had 16:28; KingMamba48's SU12N233 -- a state-of-the-art Nightmare speedrun by a very professional newcomer. Most existing NM records have gigantic percentages of room for improvement, but not this one (baring some new progression-wrecking tricks).
  14. UAC Ultra demos (-complevel 9)

    Thanks for the cool comments! I have selected a different classic WAD for my 150th demo (coming sooner or later in my next Dooming year), but I can suggest some of Kimo's other maxes which shouldn't be too hard for other UAC Ultra fans to beat by more than a few seconds. For example, the MAP02 record can be upgraded with picking up more bullet boxes to use the chaingun where SG is slow/awkward, and UA08-918 is easily beatable with more aggressive rushing past enemies. Not to mention MAP10 which can go FAR under 10 minutes with a detailed plan of movement and BFG blast distribution (including Phml's tactics mentioned in Kimo's textfile). EDIT (September 18): Sorry for such a delay, I'm just starting to get enough free time for working on #150.
  15. UAC Ultra demos (-complevel 9)

    Thanks for the idea! I chose beating Kimo's 5:30 for my 149th demo entry :) So, MAP03 UV Max in 3:59. ua03-359.zip
