stx-Vile's 30ns5600 was done in 2004, over 12 years ago! Before stx-Vile, Doom 2 NM100S was completed by 3 other people: Henning, Vincent and Ryback. It was first done in 2001 by Henning, who is the only one to have more than one exit (3 times). So a time of 47:52 is just over 8 minutes faster than the previous record which stood for 12 years, main reason for the large time improvement is because of the tricks that have been discovered since. Big thanks to those guys for showing it was possible in the first place!
Some notes about the secrets:
On map 15 you can only get 9/10 secrets, at around 22:30 you can see me open a wall on map 15 which has a teleporter, this is the only secret that I cannot grab. In order to trigger the secret I need doomguys center to be in the secret area, but because it's too small you first get lifted up when walking into the teleporter, thus making it impossible to be on the ground in that secret area.
On map 27 I do a skip on an north facing teleport linedef to grab 100%, this is not required since it's very precise to grab and nobody knew if it was possible many years ago. Maps 14,21,29,30 have no secrets. I also do not play with "A secret is revealed!" message so I need to take special care to make sure I trigger some of them.
This is my longest nightmare run so far, a bit longer than plutonia.
My next plans are to attempt to beat Final Doom: TNT Evilution on nightmare difficulty, which has never been done before. I expect it to be at least an hour long if it ever reaches the end.
Q: How do you go through gaps in the wall?
A: Explained here: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/52568-the-two-types-of-glides/?do=findComment&comment=1414380
Q: Are you using any modified version of Doom?
A: No, I don't use any modified WADs. For Doom 2 I use the DOOM2.WAD, which you can buy on Steam. You can download the demo file (.lmp) and play it using your own copy of the original WAD (DOOM2.WAD) and a vanilla compatible sourceport or the original .exe, if any modified version was used the demo would have to desync when you play it.
Q: Are you using any tools etc?
No tools are used, the demo\recording is done in a sourceport which accurately reproduces doom as it was played originally. The video is made by playing the demo in prboom-plus sourceport as it has a lot of features like uncapped framerate and higher resolution.
Q: Where can I find the demo (.lmp)?
A: All my demos are here: http://doomedsda.us/player508lmps.html
Q: I have seen a video of this speedrun that is faster by several minutes.
A: There are many Tool-Assisted Speedruns (TAS) for doom which are significantly faster. It is possible to make a frame by frame demo which greatly reduces the time, even for single level runs it is impossible to get close to a TAS.
Q: What is NM100S?
A: NM stands for Nightmare, which is the 5th (and hardest) difficulty of doom. 100S is the category where the objective is to finish the level as quickly as possible while getting all possible secrets and including all secret levels if it's a full run. You are not allowed to die during the run unless you exit at the same time.
