Here at QdQ we normally play Quake on the hardest available difficulty, Nightmare.
But to show off skill without being disturbed by and/or having to kill annoying monsters,
we also make runs on the easiest difficulty, Easy.
The difference between a run and a 100% movie is that the runs have only one goal - and
that is to get from start to exit as fast as possible. In the 100% movies, we also kill
all monsters and find all secrets in the maps before exiting, and also make sure to
visit all the secret levels.
Over the years we have made more than a few movies. Right below you will find the normal
Quake movies. Further down you will find other Quake movies, mission pack and episode runs.
Even further down you will find runs through other games such as Quake II, Doom, and Doom II.

this page as well for a list of some other available AVIs.

Between August and December 2002 we ran a series of speedrunning contests on the
Speed Demos Archive (http://speeddemosarchive.com/quake). These contests ran on each
of the levels of "Episode One : The Dimension of the Doomed" in turn and you simply
had to gib every monster on the level as quickly as possible and exit. The exit stats
of the winning time were used as the starting stats for the next contest in order to
turn the whole thing into a complete run.
Quake done Backwards - 11:28

This is another speed-run through Quake on Easy skill, with a new twist:
we completed the levels in reverse order, starting at end and ending with

to finish the levels faster than would be possible in single player mode
Fiend Run Lite - 10:00
April 1st 1999 - [FP, CAM, AVI] - Download
Fiend Run Lite was a project undertaken by Peter Horvath and Attila Csernyik.
Using the "morph" game mod by Jeff Epler, they recorded a QdQ style first-person
run playing as a fiend rather than as a human player.
When they showed it to us we thought it was so cool that we ought to refilm it a
little and add our usual excuse for a plot. For the refilmed movie, we also
changed the normal fiend model into a special one of the QdQ guy riding the
fiend, but we kept the existing animations and movements, so this is still
"real" gameplay, even if it is a bit unusual!
Skillz Test #4 reel

challenge we initiated on E1M3.

Scourge done Slick - 11:02 and 8:20
July 26th 1998 - [FP, CAM, AVI] - Download
This is a run that completes Quake Mission Pack 1, Scourge of Armagon, on Nightmare difficulty
as fast as we could manage. (Also see our improvements page.) We spent a longer time on the
production of the refilmed version of the run than we have with any previous release; we'd
consider it to be a proper Quake movie based on the original run.
SdSlite provides a whole new run through Scourge on easy skill. Significantly faster
than the original SdS run, with more tricks than you can shake a stick at.
Quake2 done Quick2 - 21:06
