Quake-related Information

Your nickname (story behind it)?
After recently uninstalling Diablo2 I have considerably more time at the moment, this
should translate to a few more demos than my crap 3 in all of 2002 :(

Your Quake config (key bindings, etc.)?
Standard shit for these days, basically nothing 2 hurt my hands.

Size of Quake directory on your HD?
2.83Gig at last look

Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?
1800+XP/geforce4 MX 440 (i know it can't do the new shit but quake doesn't need any
bloody pixel shaders now does it :P
2nd PC is P3 550 with Geforce 2 MX 400, they are both hooked up so the next time your
in NZ come and say hi and we can coop :)

Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?
don't know don't really care, i like the look of GL so i guess that doesn't make me "pure"

First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
Years ago one of my friends got a PC gamer mag with QdQ_1949 and they showed me but at that stage I had only played Quake dm and sucked at that and didn't know the levels or how cool it was. I was told how much of the levels were cut out. Years later after playing quake sp, i got a PC Zone mag (much better) which had Qd100Q and SdS. Need I say I knew what was going on and was impressed. I then found SDS and just watched demos but then i saw a demo from will which really sucked and I thought hell even I can beat this, I did, and that was where it all began.

Update from that, i made some demos, started uni, went quiet, had a comeback, went quiet, 2
quiet .. time for another comeback ;)

First speedrunning demo?
r2m4_1237 An exciting demo to watch :)

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
my only and brief ID record the NH all of id which got owned but my personal time is now under 2 hours at least. Once I make more demos I'll prolly get a clear favourite for here

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
This question is loaded, if you answer it you get yourself in shit :) Go look at the Nolans nominees page, or maybe the "optimised" demo list 2 fill this gap

Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
yet another loaded question. but if you are still keeping the community active u make me proud :)

Favorite trick in a demo?
Hmm maybe that quad GJ from qdqwav, i never thought that shit could b done so smooth :)

Favorite QdQ release?

Favorite original Quake map?
Start ;)

Favorite custom map?
dunno really?

Most annoying monster/map?
Scrags, or any monster in r1m1, map thats easy, the DOE dragon after 1300 odd other kills in Nightmare. that is why to this day there are 2 holes in the DOE tables.

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
good/good/hmm not really, as for Doom and Quake2 every now and then i'll play em, but i can only do single player, and q3 "single player" is just dum, and i hate those stupid bots and the STUPID things they say in those accents ..

What do you think of Quake now?
Its lasted this long, it can do another 5 years easy

Quake Purity Test score? link
was 70 something now 80 something but those questions are fucked up, and if u live in NZ how are u suppposed 2 meet those weird ppl?

Anything else you want to add here?
Most probably, some things i can't tell u just yet :) (party cuz something hasn't really been started so not much to say anyway ;) )
