To record a UV -RESPAWN demo of Requiem map 21, one must type in "doom2 -file REQUIEM.wad REQMUS.wad req21fix.wad -warp 21 -skill 4 -respawn -maxdemo 999 -record RR", that's ridiculous! Now wouldn't "doom2 <s @rr 21" be much easier?
I've created 40 Doom Response Files that make recording demos a lot easier:
Examples: "DOOM @ExMx 4 8" records E4M4 on UV. [VS "doom -warp 4 8 -skill 4 -maxdemo 999 -record ExMx"]
"Doom2 @LR 11" records map 11 on UV -RESPAWN. [VS "Doom2 -warp 11 -skill 4 -respawn -maxdemo 999 -record LR"]
"Doom2 <S @HF 06" records map 06 of Hell Revealed on UV -FAST. On every thing but Doom and Doom2, it it recommended to put "<S" before the "@" symbol and I'll explain why in a moment.
"Doom2 <S @AN 05" records map 05 of Alien Vendetta on Nightmare!
Classic Episode works a little differently because ever map is on Episode 2:
"Doom <S @CL 2" record E2M2 of Classic Episode on UV.
"Doom <S @CF 1" record E2M1 of Classic Episode on UV -FAST.
"<S" skips "ATTENTION: This version of DOOM has been modified. If you would like to get a copy of the original game, call 1-800-IDGAMES or see the readme file. You will not receive technical support for modified games. press enter to continue" and pressing ENTER over and over again can get annoying, and you might damage your ENTER key...
Anyways, here's the Doom Response Files, put response files in the "DOOM" folder in your Ultimate DOOM directory and put response files in the "DOOM2" folder in your Doom2 directory and put response files in the "FDOOM" folder in your Final Doom directory which for many of you is also your Doom2 directory ...
