UAC Ultra demos (-complevel 9)

As the time of this writing, the final version isn't released and there's a few bugs here and there, so some demos might desync in the near future.

Here's a Map02 solo coop UV Max in 10:20. Nothing great, I like learning maps as I record. It plays back with the -solo-net parameter.

That is impressive.

Not only do you annihilate UV, but do so with the additional monsters we added for co-op play, plus you seem to go out of your way to wake more monsters up and make things even harder for yourself. This is a pleasure to watch :)

The updated version is out, the Archvile is not trapped in this now which should hopefully make that part a bit harder :P

(Recorded with v1.1)

Map 10 UV Max in 14:37

After numerous deaths at solo COOP on this map, I tried normal UV. First try, first exit, some parts are a bit ackward.

Map11 UV Max solo coop in 4:16

I once had a much better start, but somehow after the teleport I got stuck. I suppose one monster teleported first and was wandering around, and when I teleported we were close enough to get stuck in each other but not enough for me to telefrag it ? That teleporter would have worked better with "block monster" lines in my opinion, although admittedly it's not a big thing, I was just a bit annoyed to lose a great demo from a bug. :p

Ahh, I noticed that teleport too though I figured monsters would get telefragged anyway. Sorry :/

A Tyson for MAP03 :)

Impressive! Making the lift in the red key door, I almost put another sound block line further up the passage to stop people doing what you did, but thought I'd see if anyone figured it out, so nice work ;) The Manc you pistoled might have been easier to berserk using the blocks in the room as cover, like you did with the Imps directly afterwards? You make the end room look so easy, I can't even do that well with the SSG!

In my case, it would add some difficulty. In general I think it's good you left it as it is: if someone's really low on health, lowering the imps two by two gives him a chance to survive and continue playing (plus, it's funny to watch IMO)

I agree, it's like a monster dispenser. If I was not so lazy I'd make an image macro of "press button, receive bacon" but with Imps :P

The texture designs in these levels are gorgeous! The Sliderdemon is an interesting idea too - does he have a melee attack with that hammer? I imagine that getting cracked across the skull with that would hurt more than a Skelly fist!

Some sweet runs guys, keep up the good work!

Glad you guys are liking the maps :)

The Haymaker doesn't have a melee attack though that's a really cool idea!

We've already had someone PM us about basing a monster off him (with some awesome sprite modifications) and permissions on the wad permit works based on anything we've done, so if you wanted to use him in your own maps with an additional melee then please do, it would be cool to see.

It's always neat when someone comes up with a new and novel monster to add interest or challenge to a level, whether it's the tough Afrits or the agile Haymaker (he sure gets around quickly!). Players who have "seen it all" have something new to play with all over again :)

And new textures are an attractive proposition if they're done well, as these ones certainly were.

A monster based off the Haymaker hmm? Could be very interesting indeed... I'm watching this space.

If you look at the filename, you'll deduct it's a MAP05 demo and it's not Tyson this time... UV Max, of course, in 8:40

Whoa! First time I've ever seen the rabbit's head in-game... And it was so unexpected it really gave me the creeps!

Looking at the map, I spotted what I thought was the "missing" secret (Secret1)...

...Zooming in seems to confirm my suspicion, that there are indeed two "secret" sectors here. Did a -nomonsters. Walking into this room "reveals a secret", and noclipping up onto that ledge in front of the shootable switch (Secret2) "reveals a secret" as well - It has indeed been mistakenly tagged as another secret. (It's nice that PrBoom considers a sector walked on even in noclip.)

Proof positive that you got all collectable secrets.

Yeah vdgg found that one out via PM too. Sorry :/

The Daisy head is another little tribute to Doom 1. It's out the window on MAP01 too.

NEWER EDIT: http://cyclomedia.co.uk/doom/demos/ua02-706.zip

Second exit, took 28 seconds off the first. Much cleaner apart from any bit of it that involves revenants, i just seem incapable of dealing with them correctly tonight. Or aiming my chaingun properly. Or not getting snagged on every fucking lamp. Should be able to get this under 7 mins, but not tonight, too much Becks is in my blood.




EDIT: http://cyclomedia.co.uk/doom/demos/ua02-734.zip

Map 02 UV Max 7:34. Very untidy and i spend a lot of time hiding or waiting for lifts and crushers, but it's the only exit i've managed :-)

@kimo i get a W_GetNumForName: M_EPI4 not found error trying to play back the map 02 max. I want to watch myself getting pwned!

EDIT: I am a moron : was trying to play the zip, not the lmp. Amazing that you toow off 2.5 minutes by just basically getting on with it and getting stuck in as compared to my nervous running away!

You have some of the best fade away kills I've ever seen.

Anyway this mapset looks really great. The texture alone makes it really stand out! 40oz and Super Jamie did a great job here and I feel like playing this one day.

Fade away? As in killng the low healthed monster while moving away from him? I like that style :D

Here's 2 max demos for the next 2 maps
Map03 UV Max in 5:30
Map04 UV Max in 6:15

Yeah...If I get back into doing runs I'm going to practice that because it saves more time than people think. I am happy that you are taking an interest in Max runs also.
