Quake-related Information

Your nickname (story behind it)?
Hermesz
It's the hungarian spelling of the Hermes (god of the wind in Greek mythology)
That is because I have his sandal which gives me speed :))

Left hand: go forward, back and strafe. (home,end,pgdn,del)

Around 400 Megs
Mostly the QdQ projects. (and few custom maps)

Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?

I just bought an A4 tech cordless Optical mouse (RP-649Z)

Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?
winquake v1.09 resolution: 640x400
Somehow I don't feel comfortable at any GL-quake

First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
I first watched the QdQr when I visited Attila
I didnt think much of Quake before that,
but after I saw Yonatan's runthrough, I was really inspired to give it a try.

First speedrunning demo?
Attila and me made quite a few coop demos when we first played
(e1m1_026, e1m7_016, e2m1_009)
My first single player demo was a :16 on e3m2
I wasn't much happier about any other demo after that I think.
That could probably make me believe
that I can be a member of the great 'SPEEDRUNNERS' :)

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
-e2m2 :34 NR. My most recent demo (2004). Includes the hard slopejump, GJs and a cool fiendpush.
-hip1m2 :22 for SdSlite. I remember this demo changed almost the whole hip1 ep. when it was in progress.
Lots of actions here.
-dm1sp 0:08 - Double ogre grenade backward curl jump !
-e1m3 1:00. This might be my sharpest demo so far. Spend about 3 months with it

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
Markus' e1m3 :24.
Perkele's god-like e2m4 in the QdQr. I remember I saw this demo million times!
The whole run was flawless, and that fiendpush at the end was incredible that time.
Ilkka's e1m4 :19; that trick really impressed me.

Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
overall: Markus Taipale, Thomas Stubgaard, Jozsef Szalontai, Ilkka Kurkela
they all have their own superb style that noone else has.
runs: Markus , Jozsef , Kay Berntsen
100%'s: Thomas Stubgaard he is.
coops: Marlo + F.A.B -- just few can make perfect 100% with coop

Favorite trick in a demo?
Hard question, because there are many
Double fiendpush on Ilkka's e1m4
The proxmine trap in hip1m2 for a grunt at the start was fun (SdSlite)
The grenade-push in e1m3 off an ogre instead of the 2nd GJ (Markus e1m3_024)
Fiendpush over the elevator on e2m2

Favorite QdQ release?
QdQwav so far, but tRR2, and the QdQwavII will be pretty sharp too.

Favorite original Quake map?
e1m3, e2m2 - nice, and good possibilities for runners
- e1m5, e2m5 - well constructed.

Favorite custom map?
Phallusy

Most annoying monster/map?
The zombie next to the elevator on e1m3,
and all the knights on e2m2 (NR)

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
I like Doom, but there are less possibilies for tricks, I wasn't very impressed by the Quake2, but the Q2dQ2 was nice.
Q3A is very nice, but unfortunately I don't really like DM

What do you think of Quake now?
It's still very suitable for speedrunning, and the best for playing coop

Quake Purity Test score? link
78%

Anything else you want to add here?
Perkele was right when he said: "There's always a faster route"
Inventing a new trick, or find a quicker route are the most honorable thing in speedrunning in my opinion
