    List of wads that i need to complete

    Deus Vult II and Sunder has been one of my classical favourites. Not many may find the light in these wads, but I certainly enjoyed their texture and map details. Consider giving them a try if slaughter is part of your niche interest.

    Cheating and the use of TAS tools.

    Before I begin, I'd like to express my sincerest apology to everyone in the doom community. To both speed runners and mapper for my shameful dishonesty. What I am about to confess isn't as simple of a mistake as it may really seem because its too severe to be easily reprimanded for. You might have already guessed it by now, but I . I was dishonest in submitting some of my demos that I passed of as non-TAS demos to the DSDA and as you could imagine, this will be a detailed confession. For those of you who may not know, I go by the speedrunner alias "A7MAD" and I cheated in some of the runs that I submitted from 2017 September up-to 2018 February, only within this specific time-frame. Here I am confessing about this in 2021; nearly 3 (and a half) years later. As @Ancalagon called me out earlier in the channel, there were some irregularities with some of my demo and rather than this being a leaving confession or a Shakespeare play, it will just be a "simple" confession; with some background information. Let me start of first on how all this came about. 14/15 year old me stumbled upon doom back in early 2017. I became interested in the game because I had played it earlier with my friends as early as 2009 so I had joined the doomworld forums under the alias "A7MAD" where I, more or less, participated in the forums where I started spouting real regrettable stuff back then. I then decided to participate in the speedrunning category of doom, in which I tried speedrunning some of the incredible maps that were trending at the time, most notable of which: New Gothic Movement 2, Italo and Experiencing Nirvana. I played them for the first time, had great fun (mostly) and tried speed running them. At that time, I was never really aware of prboom-plus's TAS feature, since I was a complete novice after all, so everything I had submitted up until then were legit for the most part (2017 Pre September). After getting acquainted with those TAS features, and submitting a couple of chillax TAS runs, I started speedrunning one of the harder wads and I was frustrated that I couldn't get an exit despite me practicing over this map and being able to achieve a time of "sub-whatever". Even after I was this close to finishing the map, I'd usually just die to one of the annoying things that keeps frustrating me but yeah, I was terribly bad in the game back then, with little to no information on game sense so I though that: Hey, cant I just use those TAS features that I learnt previously such as segmenting and use them in the demo? I didn't think about it much at the time, I just went ahead and did it not even fearing the severe consequence of my actions. At the moment, I had stepped into a realm of something I can never turn my back into. Fast-forward to mid-February 2018 and I started realizing that what I was doing was not just bad, but really really bad. Only then, had I realized the gravity of my predicament especially with seeing my TAS runs marked as non-TAS in DSDA. After this, I stopped submitting TAS demos and started submitting legit demos such as my sf2012(s), sl645, it11(2:48 and 2:51) demo which I though were amazing to my surprise . I saw Kimo's confession and I though I should do one myself and then move on, but even a simple task of confession was too much for a coward like me. It then became a never-ending cycle of me wishing to confess because of my guilt but as a coward I couldn't go ahead and get it over with. Now comes 2021, I am now 19 years old and I learnt over the past years to own up to my mistakes and I avoided ending up like my stubborn past teenage self of mine. I can now finally be rid of this guilt and be at ease with myself knowing I can get this message through. I already contacted @ZeroMaster010 about what my next steps are, and you can expect some demos to either be removed or marked as cheated, but I hope that everyone can find a place in your heart to forgive me. I take full responsibility for my actions and I make no excuses for myself. I never submitted any TAS demos after 2018 Feb and I never will. The fact that the community has grown to such a substantial growth even baffles me to this day. I will continue making doom demos out of my own enjoyment so call me out for being foolish all you want because I totally deserve it. Have a nice day,

    I need help idenfiying the original song from this .mid file

    Wow, good job finding it. I knew it had that KoD feeling because that midi was just way too intricate and complex to be just any random sequenced composition. But as a side note, some of KoD's composition are iron maiden, heavy metal or video game music inspired, so technically not everyone was far from the truth.

    Azuruish STAR thread (putting "speed" where it belongs)

    Azuruiush is a dude/man. He posted a picture of himself in the 'post a picture of yourself' thread a couple of years back, you can find it if you wanna go through some endless grinding. Either way, I would refrain from making early conclusions and speculating just because it came from some unknown comment.

    How do I use -viddump? (SOLVED)

    Damn, that is really weird. I've been using viddump for roughly 2 years and never had problems with it so far. I am sure most other players never had any major issues with it either. Here is a couple of questions that you might need to consider: 1. Did you download all 3 necessary video encoding components from the internet or some source and pasted them into your doom directory? 2.Did you alter the demo or maybe specifically altered between tabs during the encoding? (like minimizing tabs) 3.Did you follow all the instructions that were orderly given? I am hoping that future players can possibly use this thread as reference just in case the same issue appears for them. Viddump is afterall a very powerful tool that unfortunately has strict sort of rules, because otherwise it won't function properly.
