PrBoom's demo recording interface is very poor for
speedrunning, the following improvements would help a
1 - Allow instant quit key while recording demos. 'q'
performed this function in the original Doom and allowed
players to quickly end a demo that had gone awry,
having to quit via the menu for f10 & yes is much slower.
2 - Allow quick exit and suppression of endoom display
during demo recording. The screen is only displayed for
a few seconds but adds a frustrating delay to repeated
3 - Allow optional overwriting of existing demos. Why is
not the default behaviour is beyond me. For a short
recording a speedrunner might play the level hundreds or
more times in a single session, forcing them to
manually delete the unwanted demo each time amounts
to a lot of wasted time.
In my opinion, with these improvements prboom would
be far more suited to competition demo recording.
