Anything you want to add here (about yourself):
Well, umm, Ive been playing Doom since I got my first PC - a 486 :) I think it was about 1994, I wasnt very good at first, I used to use keys actually, and then I saw some demos of a tourneyment (4 player deathmatch) and they were turning really fast. So I gave mouse a go, and I was "Woah I dont need to cheat anymore!" and I got really good. Deathmatch still rules, but I gave some Tyson rules and Speed sp a go, turned out quite good.

2. DOOM-related information

Your DOOM config (key bindings, controllers):
Mouse, left button Shoot, rb Nothing. A=Strafe L, D = Strafe R, S=Forward, Alt = Backward, Shift = Run.
Size of DOOM directory on your HD:
Heheh.. umm before or after I cleaned it up? Well.. now its 216MB, but before it was closer to 400. good question ;)
First contact to COMPET-N (when, how etc.):
I just gave map18 a shot, never actually tried any other maps. I knew I could beat the times posted, and I did.
First COMPET-N demo:
My Map18 24 second effort
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of):
Well DUH. Theres only one ;) Map18.
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from others:
mm, not sure havnt really looked through them alot.. probably one of Daniel's tho, I think the Nightmare runs are the most exciting.
Favourite DOOM or DOOM2 map:
Map01 and 03 for Deathmatch. My all time fave SP map has to be e2m2 tho :) absolute classic. Actually all of Doom1 is..
Favourite TC/megawad:
Probably the original Aliens one by a fellow NZ'r, really put the shits up me first time i played it.
Do you like Quake?
Well.. its nice to look at and all.. and its quite fun sometimes, but there really is no gameplay value whatsoever.. and 1 on 1 DM? gimme a break.. whats the big deal with the RL too.. no SKILL...
What do you think of DOOM now?
Still the undisputed KING OF DM. Will always be remembered, its the most classic game ever.
Anything you want to add here:
I'd actually like to know how many of u fellas are New Zealanders! and how many are active deathmatchers.

Sorry Mike, no fellow New Zealanders here... Hmmm... quite hard to judge Mike's style from one 24 sec demo, still quite remarkable that he did it w/o the use of the strafe50 mousedriver... many thought before this wasn't possible.
