My friend showed me all_1949. Friend:"...but they use rocket jumping". Me:""Rocket jumping"? What kind of mod is that?" :)

First speedrunning demo?
Beyond Belief 7 in 4:42 (nightmare 100%), beaten by Nolan even before it was done.
Zerstörer map1 in 1:07 (nightmare 100%) was the first one to reach SDA.

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
Beyond Belief 7 in 0:23 (In SCBB). My 4 player MC in episode2 was pretty fun too. And the unreleased all of Quake 100% (easy skill) which I made with F.A.B, never released cause a bug prevented us from killing the last monster in the game (doh).

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
There are too many.

Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
I don't know really..... Ilkka and Peter are always good.

Yonatan's spikemine jump in hip3m1(SdS), really rocks.

SdS (I found the secret "room" all by myself!:)

Favorite original Quake map?

Favorite custom map?
Zerstörer, Beyond Belief.

Most annoying monster/map?

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
Doom/Doom2: Rocks alot, even more then Quake. Check out my coming levels on "Alien Vendetta" and "Hell Revealed 2" (non of the projects are released though) and
I know those pages look more or less abandoned, blame those lazy Norwegians for it :)
Quake2: Pretty ok, most of my friends play it (if they play Quake), so I have to stick to Quake2 if I want to play DM.
Q3A: Haven't played it much.
I would like to add that I play Diablo2 mostly these days. Playing every day on, message "TarzanSonOfMan" if you want.

What do you think of Quake now?
A classic that will never die.

Quake Purity Test score? link
86,5% Quake pure (13.5% quake corrupt)
