Just another month :) :: (16th June, 2000)
Well of course not, I was just kidding... Last month has been quite hectic for us DOOMers out there, but unless you're a real DOOMer living in Hell itself, you've probably heard the news so there's nothing new I could tell you about that :) Anyway lots of new stuff in the speedrunning business too, so that'll keep you occupied.
In case you wondered why the 1 month wait since last update: exams :( I still haven't finished them all but I have a little spare time now so I can do a proper update. To start things with, the contest results and demos are up, check them out!
Luckily the contest didn't have an effect at all on the number of incoming demos... June is a busy month and this seems to apply to this year too.

Oh yeah, the demo site is down right now as I write, so the links might not work for you, but the wrap-up ZIP in the end should contain everything you need. (Thanks Selim Benabdelkhalek for help with those.) As soon as the demo site is back up I'll clean up incoming as usual, so don't worry.

Let's start with Ultimate DOOM demos:

  • Jonathan Rimmer improved a few speedruns: E1M4 in 0:13 (very possibly optimal), E2M7 in 0:18 and E3M6 in 0:28.
  • Marijo "Sedlo" Sedlic did his usual share of Ultimate DOOM speedruns, improving E2M5 to 0:28 and E4M9 to 0:09. I got one speedrun too, improved my own E1M8 to 0:55.
  • Jonathan also got some Episode 1 Max records as well: E1M4 in 1:48, E1M5 in 2:40 and E1M6 in 3:51. Chris "Ryback" Ratcliff joined him in beating Anders' records and did E4M9 in 2:40.
  • Adam Williamson followed Jonathan's E1M4 speedrun and got the same time in NightMare, 0:13.
  • A new player to COMPET-N, coming from Norway, Ole Hartvigsen, improved the E4M4 -fast time to 2:28 and the E4M7 -fast time to 2:53. Ole also improved the E2M2 -respawn time to 3:09, E2M3 -respawn to 2:25, E4M3 -respawn to 2:21 and E4M5 -respawn to 2:36.
  • Adam Williamson stepped in and improved E2M3 to 2:18 and E4M3 to 2:16.

    DOOM2 demos:

  • Marijo "Sedlo" Sedlic did two more optimum-looking speedruns, MAP15 secret exit in 0:31 and MAP31 secret exit in 0:33.
  • Ole Hartvigsen improved Peo Sjoblom's long-standing MAP10 Max record to 5:13. He also improved Daniel Lindgren's long-standing -fast record on the same map, to 5:41. He also improved MAP16's -fast record to 3:18 and MAP17's -fast record to 6:14.
  • Adam Williamson stepped in yet again and improved Ole's MAP16 -fast to 2:57 and MAP17 -fast to 5:39. Ole was able strike back on MAP16, getting 2:49.
  • Henning Skogsto improved his own MAP05 -fast to 2:32.
  • Radek "R. Master" Pecka, who is a real expert at punching a cyberdemon, improved his own MAP32 Tyson record by 11 seconds, 1:31.
  • Marijo "Sedlo" Sedlic shows us yet another rocket jump on MAP24, worth checking out.

    Final DOOM demos:

  • Arno Slagboom improved a Demonlord Max demo dated 1996, TNT MAP01 in 0:57.
  • Andrew Bassett improved his Plutonia MAP01 speedrun time by 3 seconds, time is 0:18.
  • Selim "Bastard" Benabdelkhalek improved a couple of Plutonia speedruns: MAP21 in 0:37 and MAP28 in 1:41.
  • More demos from Selim, NightMare stuff: MAP21 in 0:45 and later 0:39 (Chris "Ryback" Ratcliff saying hi here with 0:42), MAP26 in 1:25, MAP27 in 0:59 and MAP29 in 1:43. One more: MAP29 Pacifist (new to the tables) in 1:19.

    All right, you can get the huge wrap-up ZIP here.

    More contests to see if you're still hungry: Public DANG running a contest on E1M4 (seems to be considered finished, but you never know), and COMPET-N player Zvonimir "FX" Buzanic running a handful of DOOM/non-DOOM contests on his page.

    I also added a few destinations to the links page... go check if you want.
