Arno Slagboom told me about it when I started recording demos. He also gave me the lmp directories and told me how to use it

Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from others:
Hard to tell. Map24 (speed) is cool to watch!! I like to see fast demos. And tricks!
Favourite DOOM or DOOM2 map:
DOOM : E3L7 and E2L5 (speed and pacifist)
DOOM2: L27 (speed, nite mare and pacifist)

Favourite TC/megawad:
Memento Mori, Plutonia Experiment
Do you like Quake?
Yes, especially Quake 2: nice graphics and sounds only the running is to slow.
What do you think of DOOM now?
I like DOOM more! Harder, faster and nicer secrets. (only a little bit unreal.) The voices of the men I mean. But that's not bad!!!
Anything you want to add here:
I played DOOM a few years ago on skill one and got bored. Since then I didn't play DOOM for a long time and I tried other games like Quake and Descent. But then Arno told me about recording DOOM demos and I started very soon with it. The result is already a DOOM2 0:14 pacifist level 27. (after a few months) More will follow!

Marko is another member of the Netherlands' team. His main territory is speedrunning and pacifism. I hope we'll see more demos from him soon so his style can be judged more thoroughly!
