AliensRL 0.8 beta 7b YASD
« on: May 13, 2010, 07:41 »

Suicide due to broken elevator to main tower level 7. I went up to level 7 for security and military towers.
Mortem shows 6/3 for grenades.

The grenade launcher is much less useful than the smartgun. Even with expert level I tend to miss and hit myself. Also, 4 grenades per pickup is low compared to smartgun or pulse rifle ammo. Why is the pulse rifle pickup ammo 40 when smartgun is 50 anyway?

edit: mortem tag

Use mortem tags.

Smartgun is great against lined-up aliens, but pretty a waste of ammo if they are spread out.
In such situation RPG is better - my record is 6 or 7 with one shot, including one Elite :) .

Question: Are those thorn characters and U with umlauts supposed to be that or are we having some really terrible code page 437 to Latin-1 conversion problems with the mortem?

Those are tables, crates and other new elements in the game. For displaying them the special font is used - the one that is not available outside the game, I guess.

I believe equivalent characters may be found under the unicode scheme.  This will however require that the mortems be output using unicode text (UTF-8) as opposed to the 8-bit ASCII that is currently being used.
