LMP file extension - Doom recorded demo

What is lmp file? How to open lmp files?

File type specification:

Game file type icon Game file type

The lmp file extension is associated with the Doom a 3D action first person shooter based on Id Tech 1 video gaming engine developed by id Software.

In Doom, Ultimate Doom and Doom II, it is possible to record a playing session; ie. you can save to a file exactly what you do during a chosen episode and level/map (these demo files have a .lmp suffix). This file can then be played back later so that you can sit back and watch exactly what you did. The file itself does NOT contain any graphics images.

The demo file merely records which keys get pressed and also the various mouse movements. However, there are certain key actions that are NOT recorded. These include using the ESC key to bring up the main menu and any actions taken using that menu. Also, you may find that using the mouse is not _quite_ as smooth as when playing normally - this is probably due to the overhead of having to record the various mouse movements as you play. One annoying thing is that the game _will_ record any use of the PAUSE key, so make sure you don't use it when recording a lmp file.

command line commands:

doom -devparm -warp (ep) (lv) -skill (num) -record (file)
