Dzip Update

Many of us have noticed that our demos on some of the new maps escalate in size quite quickly. Luckily we now have an updated tool that will help to tame these huge demos: Dzip v3.0. Thanks to Radix for sharing the source code!

This version adds support for the special dzip encoding of demos for protocol 666, which many newer, larger maps use. As a result, the compressed files are much smaller.

The new version can of course handle all .dz files created with earlier versions of Dzip. But, files that are created with the new version v3.0 can not be opened with older Dzip versions. So please make sure to start using the new version, so that you can unpack all future demos without issues.

Let us know if you encounter any problems with the new version.

Connor Fitzgerald improved my Easy Run of ad_e2m2 by 10 seconds to get a time of 0:29 (video link). He also improved EddWardG's Easy Run of ad_juz2 by 5 seconds to get a time of 0:18 (video link). Very nice my good sir!

Sphere has been filling the tables.

Day of Frigg

Just single player demos in todays update. Coops and a few others coming soon.

Ryan 'Chambers' Moore never ceases to amaze us once again. He improved Peter Horvath's 20(!) year old Nightmare 100% of e4m1 by one second to get a time of 0:57 (video link). This just shows how fast some of Peter's old demos are. Must watch!

EddWardG improved Thomas Stubgaard's Easy Run of coagula3 cheapway by one second to get a time of 0:03 (video link) and the Nightmare Run by one second, 0:03 (video link). Surely must be optimal now. He also improved my Easy Run of ad_juz2 by 4 seconds to get a time of 0:23 (video link). Nicely done!

I have done some more demos on Arcane Dimensions maps.

Fredrik Eckers

So, this is a sad one for me. I have just found out that Fredrik has unfortunately passed away. He was a part of The Udders back in the day and submitted a total of 31 demos between September 2000 and December 2002. Six of them are still valid.

I lost contact with Fredrik around '05 and haven't seen him at all in over 10 years but I'm still quite sad. He was a good friend.

The Results Are In

Stylaphone's Speedpack contest results are up! There's some really wicked demos in between, so go check 'em out right here.

Blast from the Past

Thanks Jonny! I was recently approched by the master Thomas Stubgaard and he asked if I could help out with updating SDA. I of course said yes, so lets get on with the demos.

Lets start with the coops.

Onto the single player demos.

I have been continuing my onslaught on Arcane Dimensions.

I also have added two new AD maps and did some demos for them.

ad_heresp1 (Oxyblack Fortress) by Heresy.

ad_juz1 (Network Unreachable) by Julian 'Juz' Priestley.

Feel free to send in demos on new maps and we can add them to the tables. We just ask that the maps are fairly well made (or fantastic) and not like Beach. Please note when sending in your demos that it's on a new map.

As a reminder, Stylaphone Speedpack contest ends in 10 days. Click here for the full details.

The team is growing!

Both me and Stubby will be a bit busy for the foreseeable future and won't be able to dedicate as much time to SDA as we'd like. However, since we have a good thing going on with the Quake community and all the awesome demos being submitted, we have asked two people to join the ranks.

Let me introduce to you Justin 'Optic' Fleck and Sphere!

Welcome guys!

id maps and mission packs

Continuing with another semi-small update, here's a bunch of demos on the id maps and mission packs.

Ryan 'Chambers' Moore did three id demos in spectacular style as always.

  • Easy Run of e3m6 in 0:23 (video link), 1 second faster than Grzegorz 'deniu' Gladowski.
  • Nightmare Run of e2m7 in 0:33 (video link), 1 second faster than Jozsef Szalontai.
  • Nightmare Run ("the long way") of e2m1 in 0:42 (video link), 3 seconds faster than Martin Selinus.
Elias 'Elgu' Solla did three rocking Rogue demos. Tony Hänninen did just one Hipnotic demo, but it's a goodie.

Nothing But Coops

There's a ton of demos in the SDA inbox again, so to make it easier for myself I'll do a couple of these short updates over the next few days. We'll be starting with coop demos.

Involved with these demos are Elias 'Elgu' Solla, EddWardG, Ryan 'Chambers' Moore, Sphere, and Ishmael.

Anno Domini

The time has come to present the Arcane Dimensions demos we've received in the last few weeks. There are a total of 41 of them!

Brent 'ws' Wise submitted his first demos since January 2004:

Great demos and welcome back!

Connor Fitzgerald sent in the following demos:

Just as usual, Connor delivers the goods!

EddWardG went crazy on ad_e1m1:

Really cool to see a new player bashing his way in!

With a total playtime of 222:54, Justin 'optic' Fleck provides:

Great balls of fire!

Last but not least, we got Ryan 'chambers' Moore with two really tight demos on ad_s1m1:

Well worth a watch!

Download all demos for this update here - beware; it's 848 MB (and 3.13 GB unzipped).

Sunday, February 21st 2021 by Jonny Andersson

Sunday funday

With new maps comes new demos. This update will showcase some of them but we've saved the Arcane Dimension demos until later so please keep 'em coming!

First up we have two pretty darn good ID records:

Ryan 'Chambers' Moore did the Easy 100% of e2m2 in 0:48 (video link), 5 seconds faster than Elias 'Elgu' Solla. Incredible demo!

Conny 'Jukebox' Wernersson tried his luck on the long way of e3m2 and got 0:36 (video link), 1 second faster than Petar 'PraskOo' P. Amazing!

Conny also took on the recently-improved-and-according-to-me-unbeatable Nightmare 100% record of tower and got 0:14 (video link), 1 second faster than Tony Hänninen. A day later, he submitted yet another improvement where he exited at 0:13 (video link).

I must say that I love being misproven in situations like this!

The rest of the demos can be found here:

  • Connor Fitzgerald did the first ever Easy Run of ghspch01 and got 0:09 (video link). It sure does look optimised from my point of view, but since there might be another route I don't want jump to conclusion.
  • Connor also beat Mathias Thore's Easy Run of sm57_czg by 1 second and got 0:08 (video link). This one goes on the Unbeatable list.
  • Damian 'Ankh' Kulot improved Justin Fleck's Easy 100% by 8 seconds of his own map hdn. He exited with all the kills in 2:15 (video link).
  • Mattias Öman improved Basil de Vries' Easy 100% record of coagula3 by 17 seconds: 1:49 (video link).
  • Joshua 'Stylaphone' Bransgrove tried out the newly added snaut-cloister. He did the first Easy Run in 0:56 (video link). He then improved it by another second and got 0:55 (video link).
  • EddWardG did the Nightmare Run of jjspq2 and improved Thomas Bergendorff's previous record by 2 seconds and got 0:45 (video link).
  • EddWardG also did the Nightmare Run of q1tm3_hrim2_V2 and improved Justin Fleck's previous record by no less than 31 seconds and got 0:22 (video link).
  • Gustav 'Brainfluid' L. did the first ever Easy Run of e2m5rmx in 0:54 (video link).
For the map sincinch, we actually had a small battle without any knowledge from the involved parts. Gustav 'Brainfluid' L. submitted a demo he recorded all the way back in November for the Easy Run: 0:18 (video link).

Unfortunately for him, Connor skipped the rocket launcher and instead used an ogre grenade getting 0:12 (video link). Connor also did the Nightmare Run and exited at 0:11 (video link).

The third party in this made-up conflict is Ryan who submitted demos with the same times as Connor but a tad too late.

On top of this, we've also received several coop demos:

  • Elias 'Elgu' Sollas and Sphere did the 2-player Easy Run of r2m8 in 0:04 (video link), table filler (1 second faster than the Easy Run).
  • EddWardG and Sphere did the 2-player Easy Run of black1 in 0:48 (video link), table filler (8 seconds faster than the Easy Run).
  • They also did the 2-player Easy Run of black2 in 0:43 (video link), 4 seconds faster than Carl and Johan.

EddWardG, Sphere and Ryan 'Chambers' Moore gave us:

From EddWardG, Sphere, Ryan 'Chambers' Moore and Elias 'Elgu' Sollas we got:

  • 4-player Easy 100% of colony in 0:36 (video link), table filler (18 seconds faster than the 2-player Easy 100%).
  • 4-player Easy 100% of pagan in 0:15 (video link), table filler (2 seconds faster than the 3-player Easy 100%).
  • 4-player Nightmare 100% of pagan in 0:15 (video link), table filler (2 seconds faster than the 3-player Nightmare 100%).
  • 4-player Easy 100% of shoot in 0:12 (video link), table filler (2 seconds faster than the 3-player Easy 100%).

New JoeQuake build

Our good sir Fleck happened upon a bug when playing the new AD maps resulting in crashed games due to "spawning of specific edicts overflew the max_edicts list".

Joe quickly identified the issue and released a new build (version 0.17.1, build 6746) which solves the problem. Make sure to get it here.

What about the bunny comparison?

Well, first of all, the 400m map has been added to this page. Feel free to improve your previous time.

Should you need any tips on how to do this, please check out these two videos (courtesy of kipi):

Secondly, we have several new demos from Damian, Joshua, Angruo and Petar P.
I want you all to pay attention to Petar's demo; the first (unless I'm mistaken) run through e1m1 in 0:20 seconds without using the explobox. Crazy!

Last but not least, here is another video by kipi. He has combined all demos in the 400m contest into one video. Well worth a look.

New Maps

We're adding a bunch of new maps. Seven single player maps and one giant episode to be exact. That should keep you entertained for quite some time. Please note that all these maps require JoeQuake v0.17.0 (or newer).
  • e2m5rmx (The Lizard's Trance) by RJ - Name your demos "x2m5"
  • ghspch01 (Green Hale) by Chris Holden - Name your demos "ghsp"
  • grim (The Grim Outpost) by Andrew Smith - Name your demos "grim"
  • nmth_machinery (The Machinery) by Guilherme Nemeth - Name your demos "mach"
  • sincinch (Sinister Cistern) by Chris Holden - Name your demos "sin"
  • snaut-acidtrip (Organic Dissociation) by Shamblernaut - Name your demos "acid"
  • snaut-cloisterfuck (Cloisterfuck) by Shamblernaut - Name your demos "cloi"
And then there's Arcane Dimension. Coming up with what to name your demo(s) was quite a puzzle, so please bear with me if it all seems a little confusing at first glance. There's an obvious pattern to it if you look closely :-) There's a total of 23 maps, and since we can't go above having 4 letters in the demo name, I had to be smart with the demo-naming.

I'm not overly familiar with Arcane Dimension, so if there's something fishy going on with any of the maps (like if you can't get 100% kills and such), just let me/us know and we'll take it from there.

  • ad_cruical (The Crucial Error) by Maik Franz Xaver - Name your demos "adcr"
  • ad_dm1 (Place of Many Deaths) by Gavin Edgington - Name your demos "add1"

Jozsef Szalontai was kind enough to provide us with QdQstats for Arcane Dimensions. I've included it in the download above, but you can download it individually here too if needed.

Speaking of Joe, he also recently released a new version of JoeQuake which you can grab here.

Here's some highlights from the new version. All the changes can be viewed here.

  • All (bsp/mdl) textures are drawn using OpenGL's VBO and GLSL tech (performance improvement)
  • Added resolution scaling from QuakeSpasm, also added option to adjust in the Video modes menu
  • Added GLSL gamma correction from QuakeSpasm
  • Added dynamic gfx texture loading
  • Added option to set Power bunnyhopping on/off in the menu
  • Changed default key bindings to make more sense for new players (like WASD for movement, MOUSE1 for attack, etc)

Twice a day make the doctor go away

Let's continue Stubby's update onslaught with number two for today.

EddWardG already has 26 coop demos so it was just a matter of time until he submitted his first single player record:

When one get up to speed, one should continue and so he did: Great to see single player demos from a new player! Keep up the good work.

Justin 'optic' Fleck took back his Nightmare 100% demo on dmc2m3, beating me by 10 seconds and exiting at 1:10 (video link). Very nice!

My brother from the same mother Mattias Öman decided to grace us with his first demos since August 30th:

Great demos - keep 'em coming!

Last but certainly not least, Tony 'cookye' Hänninen submitted two really neat records:

  • Nightmare Run of catacomb in 0:14 (video link), 1 second faster than Justin Fleck's demo from 1999. I dare to say this one is unbeatable! I've also added Connor's Easy Run with the same time to this list.
  • Nightmare 100% of tower in 0:15 (video link), 2 seconds faster than Connor Fitzgerald. This one goes on the unbeatable list as well.

ID's and Hips

We have our first batch of "the long way" Easy Runs on e3m2. One player in particular seemed to have fun with it.
  • New player to the tables Joshua 'Stylaphone' Bransgrove started out by improving Gunnar's '97 demo by 1 second to 0:46, and then he went on a rampage by improving it further by 1 second to 0:45, another second to 0:44, another second to 0:43, and finally one more second to 0:42 (video link).
  • Sphere had a go at it too and improved Joshua's time by 3 seconds to 0:39 (video link).
  • Not letting them steal the spotlight, Petar 'PraskOo' P. took the time down another 2 seconds to 0:37 (video link)
  • Speaking of Petar 'PraskOo' P., he did the Easy 100% of e4m2 in 1:00 (video link) improving Conny Wernersson's time by 1 second. Highly recommended download!

    And finally we have Tony 'cookye' Hänninen taking two records on Quake's first official mission pack:

    Connor's Hunt For Decimals

    It's always super fun watching demos from Connor Fitzgerald since they're all so short and explosive. These six demos are no exception.
    • Easy Run of dm4sp in 0:06 (video link), 1 second faster than Peter Horvath. This demo is CRAZY! It's going straight to the "unbeatable demos" list.
    • Easy Run of bub2 in 0:11 (video link), 1 second faster than Jozsef Szalontai. Another one for the unbeatable demos list.
    • Easy Run of critters in 0:15 (video link), 1 second faster than Amrik Kochhar.
    • Easy Run of czgtoxic in 0:24 (video link), 1 second faster than Daniel Andersson.
    • Nightmare Run of misery in 0:07 (video link), 1 second faster than Robert Axelsson. And yet another one for the unbeatable demos list.
    • Nightmare Run of nesp10 in 0:08 (video link), 1 second faster than Anders Nordensten. And why not put this demo on the list as well.
    Don't blink!

    e3m2 "The Long Way"

    Just a quick note to let everyone know that we've added "The Long Way" version to e3m2, similar to those on e1m6, e2m1, and e4m5. The current best demos using this route are from 1997/98, so there's plenty of room to optimize and for getting an "easy to grab" id record :-)

    Here's the exact wording on the e3m2 page should you be in doubt:

    "For the long way, you need to take the intended route and not grab the silver key early".

    In retrospect and for the future to come

    This will be the last update regarding the - in many ways shitty - year of our lord 2020. Not Quake-wise though, not at all.

    Number of players 23
    Most demos Justin Fleck (445 demos)

    Demos per category

    • Easy run:                110 demos (15 marathons)
    • Easy 100%:            220 demos (15 marathons)
    • Nightmare run:       145 demos (21 marathons)
    • Nightmare 100%:   309 demos (21 marathons)

    Thrice the haunted halls

    Yet again I have the pleasure of continuating the tradition to notice when a player holds all four single player on an ID level.

    This time it's not a new player but instead Thomas Stubgaard who has improved no less than three of his four single player records on e3m7.

    Let's have a look and try to visualise the hundreds of hours this man has put into this truly haunted map:

    • He is the only one with a valid record on the map (coops included)
    • Between June 26th 2000 and October 15th 2020, he submitted 25 single player records and another 10 coop records
    • There are a total of 56 demos on this map and the craze Dane has submitted 35 of them
    With a few hundred hours under the belt on this map he surely deserves to have the total ownage.

    I've asked him to provide a few words for each of the demos:


    The Nightmare 100% run concludes my lifelong obsession with this map. It has haunted me in my sleep for the last 20 years. I've spent hundreds of hours on this map alone, and that's not just some silly statement, it's actually true! Call it self torture if you will, but I "enjoy" runs that are brutally hard. This is probably the demo I'm the most proud of of all the Quake demos I've done since I started submitting demos to SDA way back in 1999.
    I've never been a quick bunnyhopper, so I naturally gravitated towards 100%'s from the very first demos I ever did. I guess you could say 100%'s appealed more to me because of my shortcomings. Don't get me wrong, I love watching runs like Conny's infamous e1m1_019 Easy Run as much as anyone, but when it comes to my own running I prefer doing 100%'s.

    With that said, let's start with the run that involves the hardest "trick" in any demo EVER, and I stand by that statement! Go ahead and prove me wrong :-)

    Let me explain the "Houdini Ogre" trick in detail:

    A bug in the Quake code sometimes let an Ogre teleport itself to another destination on the map (not just this map, but any Quake map).
    It happens more frequently on some maps for some reason I'm not technically inclined to answer. On e3m7 specifically, the Ogre in the narrow hallway you have to kill in order to progress through the map sometimes teleport to the Fiend pit area close by. It happens so rarely that I've only had it happen about 4 or 5 times in all my hundreds of hours on this map. That trick alone saves 2-3 seconds which makes all the difference in a short run like this. Normally you'd have to shoot the Ogre 9 times with the shotgun for it to die, OR, if it throws a grenade at you while you're up close to it so it takes self-damage you can do it with 8 shots. That's why you see me bump into the Ogre in the skill 3 demos.

    And the irony in it all is that even if you're lucky enough get the Houdini Ogre, everything else in the run has to go according to plan as well which it naturally never does apart from that one time when I got the 0:40 demo.

    I did in fact get it ONCE during my most recent 21-28 hours of Easy 100% grinding. I was on course for maybe beating the 0:40 time when I realised I hadn't pushed the button on the upper section that opens the door to last section of the map. That button has fucked up many of my e3m7 attempts.

    The run in itself isn't highly spectacular apart from the trick mentioned above, but the record has stood since January 2006, and normally any of the top bunnyhoppers would've been able to beat it with ease, so maybe if I'm lucky I can still claim to be the recordholder 20 years from now.

    And yes, I've tried to beat it many times since I did the 0:40 demo, but never got close.

    This one is a lot harder than you think. Here's a snippet from the text file for the 1:25 demo:

    I've been trying to beat this for the past 7 days, about 3-4 hours grind each day. I'm well aware the demo doesn't look amazingly sharp, but this map is brutal, even on skill 0. Squeezing past the 2nd Ogre as fast as I did in this demo happens maybe 1 try out of 50 or even less. It's totally random. And getting as much as luck as I did with the monsters in this run almost never happens. Usually a zombie is knocked down and I'm not able to kill it while having the Quad.

    The start in itself is very technical and requires lots of luck. Let me explain:

    Right after you jump off from the lift and land on the bridge, you need to hit a trigger for the door to open. It's not hard hitting the trigger in itself, but right after hitting the trigger you need to stay all the way to the left on the bridge, so the 2nd Ogre will start moving in that direction. The Ogre can't move too far or you won't be able to squeeze past it when you stun it. It's really a case of 1 or 2 pixels seperating failure from success.
    It's possible to stun the Ogre so it falls on its butt on the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th shot. I don't know why it won't get stunned on the 2nd, 4th, and 6th shot, but in the hundreds of hours I've been playing this map in the past it has never occured. Some weird shit in the code probably. Ideally you want to stun it on the 3rd shot as that's when the Ogre is in the perfect position. Getting the 1st stun will just make it fall back in an unwanted direction.

    I was over the moon when I recently improved it to 0:44. When I grind e3m7 on skill 3 I typically aim for doing the 100%, but if I get a fast start up until where the first Quad is, I sometimes switch over to the Run instead. That Quad area is the section that makes all the difference for the run. It's lots of small little details that's makes the difference, but the deciding factor is the fast start and if both Ogres near the Quad on the top section are moving to a favorible position (which they - yeah, you guessed it - very rarely do).

    If you take the Houdini Ogre from the Easy Run out of the equation, this run is the hardest to do of all four. Getting a 0:43 is certainly possible, but it'll be for someone else to try.
    Believe it or not, if you can survive the onslaught, this one is actually the "easiest" demo to do fast of all four categories.

    "But what about the Easy 100% I can already hear you asking?", well, to improve the Easy 100% you can't really get a single shot wrong, and the monsters have to cooperate close to perfectly (lots of infightning and no Zombies knocked down). With the Nightmare 100% there's room for small errors here and there, but yeah, first you have to survive the onslaught :-)

    What's new in this demo compared to the previous one is the end room in which I make the Vore and one of the Ogres infight. It saves a lot of precious shots I can use to make other sections of the run go faster. It's super tight on ammo as it is!

    A New Year Begins

    First demo update 2021! It's mostly the remaining demos from 2020 (there's still three in inbox we're saving for a special occasion).

    UPDATE: Oops, I forgot to mention Sphere's Easy 100% of r2m8 in 0:22 (video link), which is 5 seconds faster than Robert Axelsson.

    Connor Fitzgerald submitted a pile of very short single player demos just before the year rang out:

    And here's a bunch of really cool madcoops from Ryan 'Chambers' Moore, EddWardG, Gustav 'brainfluid' L., Petar 'prask0o' P., and Sphere
    • 3-player Easy Run of 2run5 in 0:22 (video link) by Gustav, EddWardG, and Sphere, 1 second faster than Adam/Jason/Benjamin.
    • 3-player Easy Run of jjspq2 in 0:25 (video link) by EddWardG, Gustav, and Sphere, 1 second faster than Adam/Jason/John.
    • 3-player Easy 100% of 2run5 in 0:22 (video link) by Gustav, EddWardG, and Sphere, 4 seconds faster than Daniel/Jonny/Daniel.
    • 3-player Easy 100% of misery in 0:17 (video link) by EddWardG, Gustav, and Sphere, 1 second faster than Adam/Jason/James.
    • 3-player Nightmare 100% of misery in 0:17 (video link) by EddWardG, Gustav, and Sphere, 1 second faster than Adam/Jason/James.

    Surprise!

    Let's start 2021 on a positive note with our first contest in 10 years! It's based on an idea I've had in my head for a looong time, but as I can't map for shit I needed to "trick" someone into building the map for me. First it lingered a while with Negke, then it took a detour with Shamblernaut, and finally it ended up in the hands of Stylaphone. A HUGE thanks to all three of them for making this happen!

    Most of you who frequent this website knows about the 100m map that was used as a contest in 2001. It's since been used as a way for Quake speedrunners to measure themselves against eachother as the ultimate bunnyhopping test. The winning time back in 2001 was 10.68 seconds, and by comparison the current record is 9.63 which is a strong testiment to how much Quake speedrunning have advanced over a span of 20 years. Fun fact: Usain Bolt's real life 100m record is 9.58 seconds, so we're inching closer to that.

    This time we're taking it a step further with a 400m run! The current real life world record is held by Wayde van Niekerk and clocks in at 43.03 seconds. It'll be fun to see if anyone can get close - or even surpass - that time. You can also run the map in coop mode for those feeling adventurous.

    400m contest

    Full details of the contest are to be found right here. Make sure you're using the latest JoeQuake build as the map won't run otherwise. The contest will run for nearly 1½ month, so you've got plenty of time to hone those bunnyhopping skills.

    UPDATE: If you're having FPS issues when running the map, use this "stripped down" version instead. It won't look as pretty, but it'll run smoother.

    Demos being run on both maps will be accepted.

    READY, SET, GO!

    Old news.
