If it's a doom2 demo then:

doom2 -file scythe.wad -playdemo (name of demo minus the .lmp suffix)

Note: The scythe.wad and demo must be in your doom2 folder.

I assume you are downloading from http://www.doomworld.com/sda/scythe.htm .
The .wad files are the maps. The .lmp files are the demos.
As Rich said, you can playback the demo with
doom2 -file scythe.wad -playdemo <demoname> (with no .lmp on the end)

You can download Scythe demos directly from:
http://competn.doom2.net/pub/sda/p-s/
http://competn.doom2.net/pub/sda/p-s/sc_lmps.zip is a good one to start with.
Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

I'm surprised Ryback never uploaded his -fast run over map30.

I did. It's in the pack. You've just got to search a bit...

(hint: one of the demos doesn't work.)

this works... i run winxp and it is kinda slow. i tried zdoom with the same commands but there is an error message: sth like v1.9 does not support demos. Is there another win port, which works good with demos?

Further hint: the demo that doesn't work isn't listed in playall.bat

(someone's going to get this eventually!)
