DoomRL 0.9.9.2 RELEASED!
« on: February 11, 2011, 10:56 »

DoomRL 0.9.9.2 has been released!

The new version fixes all known bugs, adds a lot of flavor, and expands the game with not yet seen content! A new animation system has been introduced, you can play around with Assemblies, and several of the special levels became truly special!

Grab it while it's hot on the DoomRL website! Both Windows and Linux 32-bit versions are available -- Linux 64-bit and hopefully a Mac OS X version will come soon!

ChaosForge is growing! I'd like to use this moment to announce a lot tighter release schedule from now on -- the first Beta of 0.9.9.3 should be available to Supporters no later than in one month, and the official 0.9.9.3 release is going to be no later than in 4 months. Please be sure to check out the ChaosForge treasury and if you think that ChaosForge games gave you something, then why not give something back :).

Most noticeable change in this release is the asynchronous animation system -- many things happen in DoomRL at the same time, strongly reinforcing the dynamic feel of the game! This is a side effect of the concurrently developed graphics version, which a few of the Chaos crew are already testing.

Second major change, not immediately visible is the presence of Assemblies. Specific combinations of mods applied to an item may trigger an Assembly possibility -- sometimes completely transforming an item into a more powerful version! Known Assemblies with their receipts are gathered in the player info screen -- the names of the basic ones are already revealed.

Final major change are major changes to some of the special levels. There's even a presence of a semi-plot that binds three special levels together. Following that we have three new boss monsters, fighting which is truly no joke!

To celebrate the enhanced levels there are three DoomRL dedicated MIDI tracks for some of them, possible thanks to the artistic talent of Simon Volpert. Be sure to check out the forum thread for a lot better sounding MP3 renditions!

Minor changes include a completely new config system, new exotics and uniques, new config options and several tweaks and flavor enhancements!

There are a lot of Sandbox changes in 0.9.9.2; the wiki is being updated, slowly, and will hopefully be useful if not complete by the weekend's end.

Until then, modders are advised to check out IRC.


As for the non-modder parts of the wiki, well, it's a community project!  Start editing as you find stuff!  I'm not going to spoil it for you...

All right!  I'll have to wait a little seeing as my school blocks doom.chaosforge.org but not any other part of the site...

I count 3 new uniques (not gonna name them HERE of course) and 15 new badges (Speedrunner/Gatekeeper series, Masochist Bronze/Silver, and Everyman Gold/Platinum/Diamond. You also didn't mention another upgrade to a level, but now I'm just nitpicking (and most people will see it on their first try anyway).

Still, it's the upgrade to DoomRL I've been wanting for a very long time, and it's great to have something immeasurably fun to do again. Cheers!

Well SOMEONE checked the Wiki like, ten minutes after I added that section. Good thing I didn't put down the schematics yet or else the spoilers would be all over the place. (Guess I'll wait a while to add the non-random items too.)

EDIT: They took it down so I will too, heh.

Post removed.  Sorry, I got a little too enthusiastic about the 40k references.

Excellent work Kornel. I've been waiting for a new update for what seems like ages. The only problem is, my girlfriend just asked what are we going to do today? The weather is beautiful, the surf's great, it's a perfect weekend and I have the day off work. How am I going to explain to her that I'm going to sit at the computer playing DoomRL all day?
