Doom 3 Forum  /  New Categories (?)

Hey there,

so like in other games, Doom 3 actually has the capability for other categories than Any%. The following categories could be interesting:

- 100% (All PDAs and all Video Disks): This Category would be easily veryfiable since the PDAs and the Disks show in the inventory. You would need to load up the "Excavation" Level and show your inventory after the completed run+time. The "Excavation" Level itself would have to be watched for verification, since there are some last items to pick up.

- Nightmare Any%: This is THE standard hardcore category. But I assume it won't be run by too many people, if any.

What do you think about this? Do you have other categories in mind (Is low% viable in any way maybe?)? If there is not enough people interested in these categories, they probably are not going to be set up on the boards.

Thx for your opinions
greetings

100% sounds kinda really boring and long to be honest, but Nightmare should be included, yeah.

Nightmare in this game is really hard and unforgiving (you basically die from 2 shots), but it might be fun if someone would do a SS run 🙂

That is a really nice idea to make it a SS category only. The problem is the verification process. You would have to watch the whole run to make sure its SS.

I agree: 100% is possible but boring I guess.
Nightmare Any% is a nice category, maybe even with the distinction of SS and RTA.

I meant SS as RTA. There's no need for a "true" SS category.

Hey there,

just for fun I tried to speedrun the game on Nightmare yesterday (turned out to be a fast playthrough):

It is quite demanding. There are no rocket or grenade jumps because the blast kills you immediately. So this would be a pure trickless route which is also nice I think. Health management is obviously very different because of the soul cube. Some passages either have to be grinded to perfection or are impassable without qs/ql. Some of the recruit Any% route is still working. Lots of additional enemies made me choke a lot of times. I might have died somewhat between 50-100 times. I guess a good time could be around 1:30.
This of course also means: There is lots of unrouted territory which is a good thing.
(I tried to have Real Time and Game Time run next to each other but must've done something wrong. So sorrily both timers show Real Time now.)

It was pretty much fun, and it convinced me that this indeed can be a valuable new category. So maybe have a look at the vod to get an idea of it. It would be nice to get enough people interested 🙂

Greetings
