For the first time speed demos archive has relased a painkiller speedrun which was made by Lithuania Artas1984. This is the second PK speedrun in history, with the first being made by Finnland rj19 in 2006 which was not accepted by sda.

Author’s comment:
This is an individual level run. Videos are 800X600 pixels, 25 FPS, except boss levels are 1024×768 pixels.

The goal was to finally release the original Painkiller speedrun, using the newest and most modern shortcuts and also to beat the original 2006 RJ19 speedrun, which did not go to SDA, unfortunately, mainly because of the low video format in 320×240 pixels and the fact that chapter 5 is unavailable in trauma and a cheat-script program was used to unlock it. Some of my speedruns have been beaten already and there are still a few modern shortcuts left, which i was not able to execute (mainly due to FPS requirements), so i will be looking FW for new releases, perhaps a full Nightmare run with 23 levels by someone else. Originally i wanted this to be a common run shared between me and The Void, but later he declined, so now i am actually glad (lol).
