Recording & Playback

For demo recording and playback information, check the detailed welcome thread at the Speed Demo Forum. The majority of players prefer to use DSDA-Doom to record and play demos for vanilla, limit-removing, mbf, and boom formats. (G)ZDoom is generally only used for (G)ZDoom-specific wads. Note that DSDA-Doom maintains backwards compatibility, but (G)ZDoom does not. Always use the source port version that a (G)ZDoom demo was recorded on to ensure proper playback.
