Speed run - 1:25:11

Peter Knutsson:
Doom 3 Speed run - nightmare difficulty. This is a project that has been going on for several months and I even restarted the run from scratch twice because I wasn't satisfied with the result. The planning started back in August 2005 and I guess that the time it took to finish this is a good measurement for how hard it is to speedrun this game on nightmare. This is probably one of the hardest things you can do in any FPS game. When Jérôme "tagh_azog" Bouzillard got his 1:30 run on marine up the goal became to beat that run, with the difference that I would be running on nightmare instead of marine. There are of course a bunch of differences between a marine run and a nightmare run in style of playing and strategies as well as the choice of shortcuts and time savers. -First of all, some things that I can't do are rocket/grenade/barrel jumping, a single explosion bring you down to negative health (instant death) when you have full health and armour. -Many shortcuts that involve taking damage can't be used, the damage system for nightmare makes everything deal a ton of damage and often result in instant death. -All medkits are removed, only way to restore health is to use health stations or the soul cube. -You receive the soul cube in level 2 when playing on nightmare, this allow for some new strategies which actually make some parts faster on nightmare, for example the first mini boss Vagary can be killed in around 5 seconds compared to around 20 seconds on marine. -Your health drops by 5HP every 5 seconds or so till it reaches 25HP, putting you on a very tight leash in terms of HP. -Many levels are so hard on nightmare so I split many of them into two parts to achieve acceptable times and performance, specially the earlier levels since I have weaker weapons. Don't let my flow fool you, most of the segments required over 200 tries to achieve the end result. -In most levels there are more enemies than on the other difficulties. As usual I never forget to mention people who have helped me in my runs in one way or another. This time they go out to Apathy for proving it was possible to run this game in less than 1:45, tagh_azog for his run where I got a lot of inspiration, some thanks go out to rr.ninty/yiff.fierus for tipping me off on the g_showtriggers command. Lastly thanks go out to all the guys in the forum who followed this project from the start and kept me going with their nice comments with how awesome my run was. They are: Agopo Aquashark Ballofsnow (extra thanks to this guy for technical help regarding the encoding) Henkie InsaneB4st4rd Juncti

[33] Doom Guy
  This is a legit speed run. Very good job. I'm sure it took much time and practice.  
[2] lilbao
  nice job! u gave first timers a good glance of the game.  
[3] Diego
  I guess that with the limitations that gives you the Nightmare mode , you did an important achivement  
[4] 007
  No surprise  
[5] han049
  Awsome job with the run! I have a question.In the video why did you kill the 3 soldiers in the level when you got the pistol?  
[6] Crush
  han049 - He kills the first 3 guards in the level so it can charge the soul cube. You get it very early in the nightmare difficulty.  
[7] Hungryheartz
[8] Angelfromhell91
  Awesome video!  
[9] Isaac
  Holy flying llamas, you're incredible! I really have to wonder how you manage to speed the dman thing without rocket/barrel jumping, but still be so god**** awesome!  
[10] NocturneD85
  This is weird, on easy mode I'm making those shots too and those things don't go down in one shot even when I aim towards the torso at very close range, i can barely even aim for the head because I'm always under heavy fire...The run is good by the way...  
[11] Taion12
  If you plan on trying this again show cutscenes ive played this once and only got to the third level I need to know what happens afterwards so cutscenes would be good.  
[12] DUM@SS
[13] Matt

[19] Floyd13
  Yo! Theres this mechanical voice that sounds like it's saying both "I'm sorry" and "I'm not sorry" does anyone know what it's really saying.  
[20] Belial
  Holy crap, very impressive.  
[21] Kibumbi
  This run is very obsolete by now. Around November last year I started a rerun but progress is slow right now because I have other things to take care of. I have finished up to Monorail Skybridge and the improvement has already reached like 6-7 minutes, and the final time is estimated to around 1 hour and 9 minutes. A very important thing is that I managed to find a way to survive grenade and rocket jumps on Nightmare, so some levels will more or less be cut in half.  
[22] Chin
  Watching you play is funnier than playing it myself. ^^  
[23] awsome598
  it would have been better in nightmare mode if they took out the health deacreasing and not taking out the med packs  
[24] byah

  Doom 3 - complete fignya as compared to Doom 1. And why was it to pass this ****? And concerning passing - well so nothing special. Because bad game and bad passing. If any American younger 20 years played the first parts... Would know what real Doom.
