You live in (city & country)?
Your birthdate (or age)?
| Drinking a lot of booze, beer etc, trying to learn programming,
computers in general I could say, and occasionally sports..
Your music taste?
| A tough question. Check this link to see some info: WinAmp Playlist
I can listen to almost anything from death metal to techno, but mostly I listen to hard rock like Kid Rock and Metallica,
and of course some Finnish bands because of the lyrics...
I have to mention that parodies done by Bob Rivers are great! =) Oh, Ilkka's tracks are great too! =)
Anything you want to add here (about yourself)?
| Hopefully I'll have time to play a bit more Quake this winter!
Your nickname (story behind it)?
| Well.. I don't have a nickname =)
Ok, when I played in a QW-clan about 3 years ago, my clanmates came up with at name NaMiveH[JK],
because they didn't like that I played with Janne[JK]..
I don't know where that weird-looking nick comes from, and I really don't care! =)
Your Quake config (key bindings, etc.)?
| Moving with ESDF
jumping with Space and shooting with mouse
weapons - all the keys near my moving keys..
Size of Quake directory on your HD?
| About 500 MB, but grows fast because of my new decent connection...
Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?
| PIII-600, Riva TNT2, 128 MB-SDRAM 100MHz, Trekker 2-button mouse
(piece of a shit), 17 GB HD, 17" Monitor
My old computer is PII-350 with TNT and 64 MB SDRAM. I still play pretty much with that because it runs on DOS with amazing framerates!
Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?
| GLQuake 400x300, Quake version 1.08, GLQuake 0.97, QdQstats 1.7
I'm quite disappointed because I can't get as high frames as I would have wanted with this system.
It doesn't work in DOS, and in GLQuake I can only get about 70 fps.. It runs faster with 400x300 than on 320x200!
First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
| I saw qdq_1949 and after that, I was hooked. I visited NSD and Muad'Dib's sites a lot, and watched nearly all demos.
Then after Ilkka started smashing records, he started QdQ-Finland site, to which I sent a lot of crappy demos I had done before that.
After Ilkka's success I realized that I could make records too, I only had to practise a lot.
So, I started playing really much, and after a couple of weeks I got my first record.
It took a while before I got my first id-record. Then I went to college and I didn't have so much time to play my skills kind
of "rusted" =) Now I'm trying to restore them =)
First speedrunning demo?
| First demo was ik1_136 easy 100 % demo
First id demo e3m7_157..
Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself
(the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
| e1m6_010 and e1m7_024 for QdQwav (unreleased because Markus beat both of them =)
and ik2_203.. I'll probably improve ik2_203 under 2 mins soon because I have some new ideas..
Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
| Pretty hard to say =) I like pretty much all of them.. =)
Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
| Overall: Ilkka Kurkela/Peter Horvath
Runs: Markus Taipale
100%'s: Nolan Pflug/Thomas Stubgaard
Favorite trick in a demo?
| e1m4 fiend boost, I personally enjoy performing e3m1 and e4m1 barreljumps most
Favorite QdQ release?
Favorite original Quake map?
| Pretty much all of them again =)
Favorite custom map?
| DE and IK-series. Ilkka's maps and BB are good too =)
Most annoying monster/map?
| The damned fiend from e2m5. Otherwise the map is great though =)
I don't know the most annoying map, there are little tricks in all of them which make them a less annoying.
Of course every hard map becomes annoying after playing for some hours...
Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
| Do I like Doom?!? Well, I like it more than Quake!! I have even got some
records to Compet-N,
but most of all I enjoy playing Public Demo Archive Of Non Gods, PDANG
What do you think of Quake now?
Quake Purity Test score?
Anything else you want to add here?
| My email is currently not working properly, so please use ICQ if you want to contact me...
Many many thanks to everyone who was on SpeedCon 2000, I really hope to see you again!! =)
