Score is abnormally low
« on: October 28, 2009, 06:21 »

A friend of mine was playing DoomRL, he played it on ITYTD and Thermie'd Cybie (first win).
But I was surprised as he suddenly said "why the hell i scored that few points??". He gave me his mortem and indeed he scored only 1980 points, which is I think about 20 times lower than it should be.
Another weird thing is that he told me that the player info screen says he killed Cybie with a shotgun! Very, very odd. Here's the mortem.

EDIT: He just told me he also got a "relatively safe" message when he won. o.O

The score issue is well known. Score takes into account your hp at game end time, and nuking gets you at -6000hp which really hurts your score. Reducing the nuke to a more sensible value of 1000-1200hp should fix it in my opinion.

About the shotgun kill: Whenever a monster dies it credits the kill to whatever weapon you're holding. There are probably a number of ways to fix this.

The relatively safe message is a common feature: you nuke, clear the level, get congratulated for clearing the level, then die horribly :P.

This also has the annoying side-effect that AoPc wins have much much lower scores than AoPc losses. My AoPc win has a final score of 3685, and a loss where I died on L18 has a score of 22,498.

Perhaps deaths where you nuke yourself should be counted as health=0 for purposes of the final score?
