Competition Doom update

21.12.2014 13:48 - fx

Lot's of buzz in the news about new Doom 2 world speed record. Maybe it was related to Doom's 21st birthday but anyway it got attention it deserves.

We go six new records uploaded since 08/2014.

DOOM II
Speed
I've uploaded MAP01 demos (not a record at all) to provoke Sedlo, so Marijo 'Sedlo' Sedlić improved it to decent time in doom2-speed-map01-0000549.zip, thought this could be done much much faster :) It's MAP01 you know, Sedlo's favorite map, so it could be interesting. Anyone?


Zero-Master wanted to show us how to do MAP02 trick so he uploaded doom2-speed-map02-0003623.zip, pretty nice and lots of space for improvement.


Marijo 'Sedlo' Sedlić recorded MAP31 in doom2-speed-map31-0003071.zip


He also did MAP31 secret exit in doom2-speed-map31s-0003294.zip, guess it's hard not to do it after practicing MAP31.


One of big excitements are from Zero-Master, Competition freshman who manged to beat Looper's COMPET-N demo from 2010, Doom 2 movie run 30uv2325.zip. Zero-Master decided to show us some new (old) tricks in his doom2-speed-movie-0231977.zip. But he was first to try them on a long run. Not easy task at all, to risk it in such a long run!


Plutonia
Speed
Second big excitement is Zero-Master's complete Final Doom: The Plutonia Experiment movie run done in plutonia-speed-movie-0253706.zip demo. Also bunch of amazing tricks, very impressive!


All Competition Doom demos packed in one zip are available here: cn20141221.zip

Our site was heavily updated in last few months so if you encounter any problems please report it, so we can fix it. Thank you!

We also got few new COMPET-N records since last update but I'd focus on Looper's Doom 2 movie run as he beated Zero-Master's CNDOOM record so I think it should be at least mentioned. COMPET-N demos packed in one zip are available here: 20141221.zip

COMPET-N news retirement

02.10.2014 09:55 - fx

After some thinking and consultation, news regarding COMPET-N will not be published anymore and I'll try to focus everything to Competition Doom (CNDOOM) even if we will have only one or two records per year like it's right now. COMPET-N database and demo upload for COMPET-N will stay available so if you still want to push one second limits you can, but I strongly encourage everyone to record demos in Competition Doom.

All public stuff was moved to Dropbox and Google drive (not completed yet) as it just takes space and bandwidth so I decided to archive it.

I've also updated complete demo pack: http://doom.com.hr/public/compet-n/compet-n_2014_09_09.zip.
