Quick level by level comments

E4M1 - Hell Beneath

I lost 2 secs by grabbing the Rocket Launcher but it will benefit me later. Red key is picked up through the fence. Rocket jump is used to reach the "red door" faster.

E4M2 - Perfect Hatred

Monsters's positions is manipulated. BFG is picked up through the wall. SR50 jump to the ending area. RNG is manipulated to deal good damage and move cacos out of my way.

E4M3 - Sever The Wicked

Lost soul's position is manipulated. Rocket jump straight to the exit.

E4M4 - Unruly Evil

Bar glide trick is used in order to exit faster.

E4M5 - They Will Repent

Monsters and their positions has been manipulated. Exit button is pressed from above.

E4M6 - Against Thee Wickedly

RNG is manipulated to deal maximum damage. Thing boost trick is used to reach the final area faster.

E4M7 - And Hell Followed

SR50 jump to the exit platform. Exit button is pressed from above.

E4M8 - Unto The Cruel

Rocket jump to the final area. RNG is manipulated to kill the boss with one charge. Flying skulls's position is manipulated. Another RJ straight to the exit.

Truncated: I'll handle it. Judging!

Truncated: Nice work. I will accept this for moons category. Especially the two first levels are hilarious to watch knowing how hard they actually are.

While looking through DSDA for comparisons I found a very slightly faster (0.09 seconds) movie for E4M7, which seems to be because it takes the corners better. If this episode is ever improved, that should be looked into. I realize that the Doom community has traditionally only cared about whole seconds, but here we are a bit more petty. (There are also faster movies for E4M1 and E4M2, but there are good reasons for that, namely that picking up the rocket launcher and BFG saves more time in later levels.)
