DoomRL 0.9.9.5 RELEASED!
« on: January 04, 2012, 06:08 »

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Forge of Chaos!

DoomRL 0.9.9.5 has been RELEASED!

This is a special release, because finally DoomRL's world has gotten the shape it was intended to have. While the number of levels got reduced to 24, they are divided into three separate "episodes", with the grand finale in Dis, against the boss you've all asked about!

Apart from the new layout, the AI got its revamp finished -- most of the beings now have a new (hopefully smarter) AI! Also present in this version are two new Challenges and a lot of tweaks to the Badge system, new powerup and a ton of tweaks and fixes!

Grab it while it's hot on the official website!

However, before you do, please take a moment and Like! our brand new Offical Facebook Page, and if you didn't before, follow ChaosForge and my humble self on Twitter to stay fully informed of the next GRAPHICAL release!

Yes, the graphical version you all waited for is almost ready. Even more! ChaosForge Supporters have already been granted access to 0.9.9.5 graphical version beta. So if you can't wait, donate now, become a Supporter and enjoy the graphical beta! Even if ASCII is your game, take a moment and Support us, for DoomRL is happening only thanks to you!

Downloads for Windows, Linux (both 32 and 64 bit) and 64 bit MacOS X are provided (the last one should be still considered a bit unstable). All versions include sound, no-sound versions (if requested) will appear with the next version.

Download the new version to jump into the fun or join us on IRC ( #chaosforge on QuakeNet ) to celebrate, or read further!

DoomRL 0.9.9.6 work has begun, and a great release it will be! The next version will be the first with graphics support, with an epic tileset from Derek Yu. DoomRL 0.9.9.6 will be released earlier than the usual release schedule -- expect it before March, maybe even in the middle of February! Or if you can't wait head up to the Treasury, donate, and see the future now!

Keep your eyes open also for a new version of every ChaosForge roguelike -- while there have been no official releases, a lot of work went into AliensRL, DiabloRL and Berserk!. Each of them will have a breakthrough release in the first half of this year -- no one shall be left behind!

Happy New Year to everyone, the Forge will be strongly with you in 2012!

You cand drop an item on top of an opened door. Then, if you try to close the door, the game says that there is no door to close.

Sweet, thanks for all the time you put into this!

So, you find the bulletproof vest in lvl 5, do you carry it to the spider or do you drop it like you would in 0.9.9.4?

Whoa, impressive. It can attract a lot of people who don't like ASCII graphics.

And... What music pack is used in your video? The sound is awesome!

The sound pack will be default with the G-version - mixture of Sonic Clang and Simon Volpert, and Hi-res sounds.

KORNEL! Man, you just saved me from outright boredom.

EDIT:
Whoa, it's 441 downloads for just 24 hours. Impressive!

Btw. the music from Sonic Clang is available for download at their site. Ten tracks, one better than another. And the first level music outright rocks!
I will try to bind the tracks to DoomRL levels. This makes your heart beat even faster when playing :).

EDIT: Is there a way to randomise the tracks within the .lua file?

Looks absolutely awesome - nice one!

On the download page it would be handy to have a link to the download for the OSX SDL download (I'm using Mac a lot these days)...

YouTube is a great idea to show it off.

I agree with abcgi! I am a mac owner and have been eagerly waiting for this game, but I'm a noob when it comes to computer stuff. I don't even know what an SDL is.

Thanks!
