Player Checklist

Although the key takeaways in these guidelines are still important for players to know, this checklist summarizes the most essential steps players should take to minimize any delays in getting their record approved!

  • If you can, complete the level on the rated version on the servers or on an "official" copy uploaded to the Pointercrate account.

  • If you need to beat the level on a copy for any reason, clear it with the list team first! This includes but is not limited to LDMs and bug fixes.

  • If you have an LDM that needs to be checked, please share a NoClip run with the list team to help us respond quickly to your request!

  • If you'd like to use a skip, check to see if it's used in a completion already accepted to the list. If not, please get it approved by the list team before proceeding!

  • Do not skip the endscreen after a completion! This will warrant an immediate rejection of your record. In addition, make sure you're not using a texture pack that makes the endscreen text hard to read.

  • Be sure to enable a readable FPS counter for all records! You may use a framerate up to 360 FPS.

  • Users of Mega Hack v7+ are subject to additional requirements

  • Raw footage is required for every submission! Be sure to provide a shared Google Drive link to avoid any delays in accepting your record.

  • It is highly recommended to keep your raw footage file until your record is accepted! If valid raw footage is not provided, we'll reject the record initially, but players can reach out to us to provide raw footage at any time if they have it.

  • It is crucial that you include clicks in your completion video or raw footage! Failing to provide clicks guarantees that your record will be rejected. The "Recording Clicks" section below details advice for ensuring consistently audible clicks.

  • When you include clicks in your video, be sure that they're clearly audible to the viewer! In most cases, click audio must also be isolated in your raw footage. Barely audible clicks are considered equivalent to no clicks and will result in a rejected record.

  • If you're recording a liveplay (e.g. with your phone camera), be sure to have the monitor screen clearly visible in the video! Showing your input device during a liveplay is also strongly encouraged. Any questions regarding liveplay visibility should be directed towards a member of the list team.

Recording Clicks

Any record that does not include audible clicks throughout the corresponding attempt will be rejected with no exception, even if the lack of clicks is accidental. As such, it is important to determine a method of recording clicks that consistently works well with your playing setup!

Records are required to have at least two distinct audio tracks in order to be accepted. Clicks must be on their own separate audio track in order to satisfy this requirement. Every player is given a one time exception for this requirement. If you are having trouble setting up your recording software to use multiple audio tracks, please contact a team member for assistance!

Records with raw footage from livestreams, liveplays, or mobile devices are exempt from the above requirement. Providing a recording with two audio tracks along with one of these exemptions will significantly support your legitimacy. If you are unable to record with multiple audio tracks, you may also choose only record your clicks without desktop audio as well.

If you would like to use a secondary audio device to record your clicks, that is also permitted! Refer to the guidelines below for separately recording your clicks.

Before submitting a record to the list, players should be sure to test their recording setup in order to proactively fix any issues with recording clicks. If you are having trouble with recording audible clicks, please refer to the guidelines below or contact a team member for assistance!

Below are some examples of effective software for recording both video and clicks. You may choose to use other programs as well, but be sure that the clicks are audible in the video file without any editing!

For PC:

  • OBS
  • ShadowPlay
  • Bandicam
  • AMD ReLive

For Mobile:

  • iOS Built-in Recorder
  • Record It! (iOS)
  • Android Built-in Recorder, if available
  • DU Recorder (Android)
  • Mobizen (Android)
  • XRecorder (Android)

Separately Recording Clicks

In some cases, players may not be able to record audible clicks using a video recording software. The clicks could be difficult to hear due to a quiet input device, but we will never force a player to change their playstyle to qualify for records on the list!

In addition to the requirement above about two separate audio tracks, you are permitted to send a video to us with edited click volume. If you decide to do this, please be sure you also send the unedited file as your raw footage!

Another acceptable alternative for recording clicks in these cases is using a separate audio recorder placed closer to the input device. This method also helps to avoid cases of inaudible clicks due to a recording glitch. Players that choose to separately record clicks should upload a Google Drive folder in the "Raw Footage" field containing both the unedited video and unedited audio!

The preferred method of recording separate audio is using an external device, such as a cell phone. Audio recording software on PC is also permitted; however, players are not allowed to use Audacity for recording clicks!

Loopholes and Exceptions


Although these guidelines aim to cover a wide variety of aspects to the Demon List, these rules are not necessarily exhaustive and may require re-wording in the future.

Any player that attempts to evade these guidelines via a loophole in the wording of any rule will be subject to the same punishment as if that rule was broken.

Guideline Exceptions

Whenever a new guideline is released, we understand that players may mistakenly overlook new policies, especially in regard to record submission.

On a case-by-case basis, the list team may decide to grant a one-time exception for these scenarios while explicitly informing the player of the necessary procedures to follow in the future. Asking the team for an exception does not increase your likelihood of receiving one!

Players should be sure to monitor the changelog for these guidelines to ensure that no important changes are missed! Any major changes will also be announced in our Discord server.

Updates to Guidelines

Over time, we are likely to add new guidelines detailing the criteria that a record must meet to qualify for the list. However, some records may not fit the current submission guidelines because they were still acceptable at the time of submission.

The list team will almost never retroactively reject old records following a guidelines update, because it would not be fair to the record holders who followed the guidelines in place at the time.

Using the Location Feature

The User Area on this website includes a player location feature, in which players may select a particular location to be associated with their name on the Stats Viewer. Additionally, players may also contact a moderator to change their location manually if they would like to.

Any abuse of this system (e.g. blatantly fabricating your location) will result in permanent exclusion from this feature.

Allowed Hacks

The following spreadsheet details the hacks and modifications that we allow for records submitted to the list. Players should assume that any hack that is not on this list is not allowed. If you have any questions or believe that something should be added to this list, feel free to contact us through our Discord server!
