Hexen II Portal Of Praevus speedrun!

Postby Artas1984 » Tue Feb 16, 2010 9:17 pm

Hey there! I am a major fan of Hexen/Heretic series, and now i have got something special - i have done a speedrun of Hexen 2 mission pack - Portal Of Praevus, in less than 17 minutes, on LEGEND difficulty.

Uploaded in my own server as well as in my youtube channel.

Nifty. You should compress that .avi file, though, or export it into a different format (like wmv) so it isn't such a hefty download.

Compressing the file would surely be good. You'll get more people to watch it with a 100mb and under file size. Have you done any speed runs of the standard Hexen II game?
Sounds Great. Do it again.

There is already a speedrun of original Hexen 2 done by "Pif & Luc de Mestre", although it was done on easy skill, so that is a totally different thing...

I am not going to re-compress anything - i deliberately chose 4800 kbit/s data rate, so that the quality of the video would be the finest.

So you either download the file, or watch bad quality in youtube..

Besides, it's 2010.. It's silly to complain about the size these days..
The download speed from my own server is 2 Mbits/s from any place in the earth where DSL exists, so it will take approx 45 minutes to download the file - that is nothing.. No more talk about it. ;)

Just saw it. You are a monster. Incredible. How many years to become that good? Let's say you did not ever stop to play Hexen II from 1997, right?

No, i play since 2002. Compared to quakeworld pro gamers i am just an amateur, but the video looks good, because i over the last month i have been training alot for the run. I originally thought i should do this with the assassin, but then i realized how many shortcuts are available once you pick up the Crusader's meteor staff!

Great stuff. I used to do speedruns in Q1 but kind of lost an interest to do them myself. Nice to see so much activity still with Hexen. :)
