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

16.12.2014 21:08 - fx

Yeah, so happy birthday Doom!!! You are old be we are too, hehe :)

Head over to wiki site covering source and downloads and some info.

Source is moved to github as Choco is too, so report bugs, patches there: https://github.com/fx02/

As usual, before uploading demos, please test them so I suggest you to try to record sample demo and upload it first here.
then if everything is OK upload demo as every other demo here.

Please read carefully rules and obey them otherwise your demo will not be accepted.

Ok, if you are ready to play, you can directly download it from here:

If you didn't notice I've uploaded all Competition Doom records to our Youtube channel and released XBMC/Kodi video addon so you can watch Doom world records from my favorite media center. Any new demo will be immediately uploaded too, so keep em coming! :)

Have fun as always and happy Christmas / holidays / whatever you celebrate!

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.

COMPET-N/COOP/CNDOOM update

26.08.2014 14:00 - fx

Twenty COMPET-N, four COOP and one CNDOOM demo in last few months (some are just late uploads - Slade's) is not bad but still a significant drop from last year. Yeah that CNDOOM demo from me was just a test if upload works fine as I suck at speed demos :)

There are some major improvements on database so all uploaded demos are immediately available and stats are updated after upload. Hi-score table is still not available but should be later this week. Ok, nice demo pack, hoping for even more in the future:

Ultimate Doom
Respawn
4shockblast improved E1M5 for three seconds in r1m5-236.zip, but Slade decided to improve it more in r1m5-220.zip for 16 seconds. Of course 4shockblast didnt just sit and watch so he striked back with r1m5-215.zip improving Slade's for five more. Now it's Slade's turn!

Fast
One good fast record on E2M9 improving really old AdamH record for four seconds by Tatsurd-cacocaco in f2m9-048.zip, that should be close to/optimal as max is 0:49.

Cooperative
JC and Ch0wW recorded few demos for us, E1M1 tyson in c1t1-027.zip, E2M9 in c2s9-007.zip speed and E3M6s in c3s6s006.zip shaving Vincent and Dupre for one second in both records, huh!
JC also teamed with PenumbraSix and recorded E4M6 max in c4m6-230.zip.


DOOM II
Max
It's aways good to see Doom 2 records as they are sooo rare, true gems in COMPET-N. Looper made awesome improvement on MAP09 in lv09-413.zip, beating Radeg's old record for 51 seconds, almost one minute, so there seems to be even more space for improvement, right? :)


TNT
Plutonia is a bit more active, still has many gaps to fill I guess.
Max
vdgg improved his own MAP17 record for 13 seconds in ev17-255.zip.


Plutonia
Speed
4shockblast optimized kunkuns MAP09 in pl09-049.zip and save some eight seconds. Well done!

Pacifist
More 4shockblast improvements for MAP02 for one second in pp08-018.zip, and MAP15 pp15-023.zip for four seconds.

Tyson
vdgg with his famous tyson style on MAP02 in pt021141.zip beating Xit's record for some 7 minutes, huh, a long one :)

Fast
JC improved MAP30 beating really OLD record from Yonatan in pf30-047.zip for 28 seconds. Good job!


Alien Vendetta
Speed
4shockblast improved MAP03 for five second in av03-022.zip.

Cooperative
JC and PenumbraSix recorded initial MAP20 speed in ac20-327.zip.


Hell Reveled
Max
Slade improved MAP01 beating Tatsurd-cacocaco for two seconds in hr01-116.zip, while 4shockblast improved Radek's MAP04 for three seconds in hr04-121.zip.

Tyson
Slade again beating Tatsurd-cacocaco on MAP01 in ht01-148.zip for 11 seconds.


Memento Mori
Max
More Slade's stuff! On MAP01 he was three seconds faster than AdamH in mm01-058.zip.

NM100s
Slade also did MAP06, running almost twice faster than old record from Xit in mm06s255.zip.


Requiem
Max
Tatsurd-cacocaco improved old vdgg's record for 19 seconds in rq11-223.zip.

NM100s
Previously undone MAP11 is also from Tatsurd, see it in rs11-204.zip.


All demos packed in one zip available here: 20140826.zip

ps. incoming will always show all demos uploaded in last two months, so this update will not remove them, but with time they will eventually disappear ;)
