  1. Oi, do a playthrough of alien world order, I've run out of duke3d content to watch.

    SIGIL v1.21 - New Romero megawad [released!]

    I've got this as a stream highlight I'm sure. There were jokes about the Shotgunner visible through the floor there being the "guy in charge" and how he was basically the manager. Missing textures can be fun sometimes.

    SIGIL v1.21 - New Romero megawad [released!]

    I'm in the US and haven't heard word of my box I ordered. I'm on mobile and haven't checked up on or kept up with the thread but is something going on with the boxes? I expected to have it around the time Sigil released and have heard or seen nothing of the boxes.

    The DWIronman League dies to: Base Ganymede

    @dt_ As far as I know, you can save an entire stream as a sort of highlight. Go to your Dashboard > Video Producer > click the 3 dots next to Past Broadcast > click Highlight > set it to highlight the entire stream or the entire attempt(s) This should allow you to have a (seemingly) permanent backup. It's what I do for my D&D streams and other things such as gaming challenges or specials (like was done for Doomcember). I don't know if this is available to non-affiliates but it's something worth looking into at the very least!

    @Jimmy This is one of the biggest honors within the community, period. It's also great to see that Romero came to someone within the community in regards to something like this and didn't go to an outside source (I say this knowing that he has a soundtrack by Buckethead), even if it is a few minor tracks within SIGIL. Congrats dude, you've most definitely earned it.

    DyingCamel's Demons #2

    Thanks for having me on board again with such a great list of mappers!

    Where is Dr. Sleep?

    This sucks. His maps in Master Levels were among some of my favorites. Rest well, Dr. Sleep.
  8. Thank you for clearing up any doubts. Good run. Congratulations. I concede any further questions.
  9. Unless someone has some sort of better idea or a more convenient solution, it probably won't. The speedrunning scene in Doom is too broad to really "enforce" camera shit but not big enough where there has to be some sort of "super secretive" council that evaluates every run with a fine-toothed comb. So realistically? I don't think anything will change.
  10. When someone has given me a good answer, I've stopped pressing it as an issue. I personally found nothing funny about your post and feel it offered 0 to any discussion. Also, let's not forget Winterfeldt's cheated run that was scrutinized. Maybe not to this extreme levels and maybe not to a legit run, but it did happen. Winterfeldt's was obviously cheated, but all I'm doing is looking for good, solid answers.
  11. This sort of bitter, biting sarcasm (and presumed to be aimed my way) doesn't do anyone any good. I also get that you're throwing shit my way but it's whatever. All I'm doing is stating my thoughts and getting some rather good, thought out replies. Sarcasm contributes nothing. It's discussion and that's where it's been on my end from the start.
  12. Thank you for all of the valid points, Archi. These are the types of responses I'm looking for. Considering the ridiculous things ZM has done, I guess it just personally strikes me as odd that a 90-minute run can show a bit of fatigue but a 4+ hour run doesn't really show any signs of it. Not saying long speedruns don't exist (Final Fantasy 7 Any% No Slots is usually 8+ hours) but I don't know of a game that has runs that can theoretically go on for hours and hours where the intensity doesn't let up a whole lot. At least with an RPG you get moments where you're text mashing which is a bit of a breather, or cutscenes where you can walk away for a moment.
  13. I do remember the segmented Super Meat Boy run. Got a lot of attention. I think there was also a cheated Yoshi's Island run recently as well but I could be mistaken on the date, and this player did it on camera during a stream. He only got caught because his finger presses on camera didn't match the streamed game footage and someone with a keen eye spotted it. By "no" verification I'm obviously referring to someone who watches runs and verifies them with human eyes. That's all I'm referring to here. Even if we did, it's easy to make a convincing looking run that would pass a human's check. I don't disagree that the .lmp is great but as with all things, it has it's draw backs. That's why I mentioned it being a double-edged sword when it comes to "no verification". Given enough time and creativity though, anyone can cheat at any particular thing so I guess in the end maybe it makes the whole concept irrelevant? Nothing is fool-proof.
  14. I guess I'm just of the mindset that people are downplaying his aggressive playstyle for a full 32 maps/4+ hours. My biggest point of questioning at this moment is that Zero Master's 30av run starts to slow down a bit toward the end and you can see a decline in the play whereas Ancalagon's run here is as fresh going into Map01 as going into Map29, there's no sign of wear or tear anywhere. You can only combat RNG in Doom for so long before it's going to do whatever it wants to do no matter how skilled you are. If someone can disprove these points then I will have no further questions. Again, since it's been a bit, I want to reiterate that I do indeed feel Ancalagon's run is legitimate. That doesn't mean I am without concerns. One thing I do want to bring up though, Vorpal has a point. We *are* the only speedrunning community that has no verification system or anything of the sort. I speedrun other games and there's always a person on the other end that watches and verifies that the run through the game is a legal run. I realize that this game isn't your Super Metroid, Mario 64, Mega Man, or other high-profile game, but I feel that the point here remains the same. Whether we need something like that or not is questionable. The .lmp format is both great and potentially bad. It's great in the fact that it's a verification system of it's own since it's literally raw game actions dumped into a file format that can be read. However, the fact people can simply *write* a .lmp file can be seen as something that could detract from the legitimacy of the format in itself. Maybe that's what Vorpal is trying to get at in his OTHER point, which I can see being a fair thing to pick out. I realize this is a community of trust but sometimes trust can only go so far before one person ruins it for everyone.
  15. I find it funny no one bothered to point out I did indeed say "this is not always the case" as this is clearly an example of that. Maybe his time is "20% slower" but there's still no hesitation, no damn brakes on the train even all the way up to Maps 25/26/28. But you do agree that it's easy to do, which is the point I was getting at. Not that he did it.
