    a brief thought about reality

    If you open your mind too much, your brain will fall out.

    TAS (tool-assisted) demos: part 2

    Eviternity Episode 1 No Monsters in 6:21 - evitep1ox621.zip This is 36 seconds faster than the Episode 1 of my previously completed d2all tas which I'm fairly happy with. The map 8 in this tas is a tic-by-tic copy of the inimitable @vita's previously completed 5.66 tas, with his permission. Lots of thanks to him for that. :)

    I want to start speedrunning The Ultimate Doom

    Ooh I didn't know that, I've only ever watched demos with PrBoom+. Good to know.

    Dragging the demo file onto your source port .exe should work so long as the relevant .wad files are still in the same folder. If you want to play it using a shortcut or .bat file, put "-playdemo x.lmp" into the command line (and remove "-record x").

    What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Final Fantasy 9, first time trying the PC version. The best FF game, IMO, with 6 coming second very closely. As soon as I can get Dwarf Therapist running for Dwarf Fortress on linux, I'll be playing plenty of that, too.

    What are you doing to keep yourself busy?

    I was a student from home in a rural area for close to 3 years and finished studying right when all of this stuff went down. I'm quite used to being at home and being fairly isolated, but it's quite strange now having to fill the time with, more or less, whatever I want. It's the kind of thing I'd have thought I'd love, but don't so much in practice. After a few short-lived attempts at trying Linux in the past, I'm now giving it a more serious go and loving using and learning more about it. Turns out not giving up after the first frustrating hurdle yields better results, who knew...? After I figure out a few more bits and pieces, I'm going to spend some time learning Python. I've also started practising drumming again, I hadn't touched the sticks in close to 12 months prior to all this happening and it's a great way to kill some time. If anyone themselves plays and is interested: specifically, I'm working out how to be more comfortable permutating 5, 7, 11 & 15 stroke rolls. It's slow going, but I want to be more comfortable with general timing "space awareness", I guess you could call it. I was hoping to fit in a bunch more exercise, but a very annoying injury (5 slipped discs) has flared up quite badly lately and made me fairly painfully immobile, which adds to the frustration, but it's a great excuse to spend more time learning with the computer.
  10. Your episode time was 17:11. Some feedback: - Spend more time learning the routes of levels. Going to e1m9 is unnecessary, and you often became lost in other levels. - Spend some time practising your movement, in particular your shooting accuracy, effectively straferunning and not running into walls as much. - A resource for getting to know appropriate file naming conventions can be found here, and it's a good thing to learn. - Not to re-open this apparently sensitive can of worms, but, seeing your final episode time is easy to do in multiple other source ports. I see you're still using chocolate doom, if for whatever reason you are still unwilling to try other ports you can play your demos in, for example, PrBoom+ to see the final time at the end. - You're obviously in the learning stages so I know it isn't your intention to try to challenge Dwaze or Zero-Master's demos or anything, but just an FYI so you're aware, ITYTD-Speed isn't recognised as an official category on DSDA. If you're enjoying doing it then certainly keep it up, though, but yeah just so you know.

    Alien Vendetta demos [-complevel 2]

    Scratch that, I couldn't leave it alone so close to the next second. I didn't intend on improving it when I got the 1:08 but I couldn't leave a .00 demo like that! Also, I did this while streaming, but it was my first ever stream so I don't have any clue how to record them or get clips or anything... so this sentence helps exactly no-one, I suppose.
