 Dugan's Dungeon: The Whole Damn Thing 

By now, many people know that you can record multi-room demos, and in fact you can record a demo of an entire level. My challenge is to play all of Dugan's consecutively, without dying, without restoring, and without breaking for food or sleep. Having your minions bring you meat on a stick is acceptable.

There's actually an easy but time-consuming way to do this without cheating. Can you find it?

First person to upload a full set of whole-level demos that indicate game completion in one sitting wins. For ye who don't know how to record multi-room demos:

If you press F5 you'll see a dialog window for naming your demo. After you give it whatever name you want, and press Okay, the demo begins recording. If you walk to another room, the demo will continue. Recording will stop when a) you die, or b) you leave the level.

I'm not insane enough to actually take on this challenge, but:

Wow, this *might* be possible in a 24-hour ironman marathon. The meat part sounds good though. For anyone that wants to attempt going through all of Dugan's Dungeon again, I'd recommend waiting for 2.0 to come out first. It'll add a few stats so all you die-harders can vie for who beat Dugan's the best way possible. Unless you're like our esteemed Clayton. He could go through KDD again (for the 327th time?!) just for fun. Tonight. This evening, in fact.

So here's my guess on the easy but time consuming way: Follow all my single room demos exactly? No thank you, sir. I'll live on the edge of my seat... and choose to ignore this challenge, except as another place to waste precious data space with meaningless ramblings.
---------
Edit: realized easy means lack of intense effort. Going that long without sleep would not require intense effort. thus to easily complete this task I do believe one would need a supply of amphetamines, cocaine, or just a whole lot of coffee and a syringe. And I choose to consider the pizza delivery boy as a minion... I imagine putting a pizza on a stick might be dificult but doable if you tip well enough.

Still not attempting this.

Well I assume that DROD takes the time off the windows clock, so the easy way, I think, would be to simply change the windows clock every time you die so that it appears that you start the next demo staight after. Easy, but very time consumuing. :yes

Mmm, also cheating. It's gotta be in the form of full level demos, my friend.
