DoomRL 0.9.8.5 - Released!
« on: November 26, 2006, 10:27 »

So, after a long long time, over a year, I finaly found the determination to do a DoomRL release! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you DoomRL 0.9.8.5.

Here is a brief incomplete list of changes:
  • Progress tracking!!
  • Challenge Modes!!
  • Difficulty Levels!!
  • Pain Elemental and Arch-Vile!!
  • one normal and five new advanced traits!!
  • revisited special levels, and added two new ones!
  • boosted melee much!
  • enhanced berserk and computer maps
  • a TON of bugfixes!

See version.txt for all the changes. A Linux version will follow in a week or so (I'll announce it here).

I decided to call it 0.9.8.5, because I still have many ideas I want to implement before 0.9.9. Still, all the promised features (including Difficulty Levels, Progress Tracking and Challenge Modes are implemnted, not to mention a heap of Advanced Traits! And don't worry, a new version should be out a lot quicker ;].

Head to the download section of the DoomRL site and have fun! Be sure to tell me what you think of it :)

And if you enjoy DoomRL, please consider donating !

It works - you probably missed it like I do most of the time - perhaps a pause requireing enter/space after the message would help noticing it?

In 0.9.9 message coloring and message history will be in, so it might be easier :). Also I may add message coloring/confirmation customization in the ini-file, so you will be able to set it in the options.

A great game! Good work!
Kornel - you make all out of nothing... an ASCII game which have a poor graphic characteristics became a wery good tactical game
but somthing need to be added(IMO):
1)First of all - creating "Save slots" will be a great idea... copying and pasting is boring.
2)Second... beter not to exit the game after death but return to main screen
3)It'll be great if in some maps there were no light... and you must find a light amp (or funal, atmosphere will be more horrorous, but implementing of this will be...=)), or your vision will be greatly cuted
4)Projectiles... it will be good if you can evade it(if you're speedy enough =)) so porjectiles beter to be some sort of object=)with a great(!) speed
5)Some new weap's will be a too good idea... even if it's undoomish but sometimes it's fun to choose between many

so it's just IMO... 1,2 and 5 implementing simply, 3,4 are more brainf**king=)
but I repeat - game is great
Luck to you all

That's how the roguelikes are - when you die there's no coming back

2)Second... beter not to exit the game after death but return to main screen
Been asked before, and is +/- impossible because of bad menu coding on Kornels side ;P

Could be a good Challenge mode, but I don't think it'd be good for normal game

4)Projectiles... it will be good if you can evade it(if you're speedy enough =)) so porjectiles beter to be some sort of object=)with a great(!) speed
You CAN dodge them - there is a set dodge % that gets boosted if you moved previous turn... making projectiles "objects with a great speed" was talked about and the conclusion was that it wouldn't work for a roguelike

Undoomish and unnecessary - there is more than enough weapons already

Lever spawning enemies in the wall (see the two imps and the demon above me)?  Also, I'm so screwed...

Also, a typo, this time in the equipment menu: "coresponding" -> "corresponding"

Also, a request: Escape key skips the intro completely. :)

Another typo noticed (Hell's Arena): "Hell''s arena champion" -> "Hell's Arena Champion" (double apostrophe and capitalization)

Sorry, I should have caught these earlier, but when I played before I was a bit rushed and was also rather tired...

I guess it's okay for me to jot down these bugs for the 0.9.9 development line?

Lever spawning enemies in the wall (see the two imps and the demon above me)?  Also, I'm so screwed...
This one is simple -- the monster placement code searched for a suitable place to place the IMPs, but Lava/Acid/Water is as bad for placement (from the code's point of view) as walls are. I guess I should break monster placement at all in such a case?

Also, a typo, this time in the equipment menu: "coresponding" -> "corresponding"
Fixed.

Also, a request: Escape key skips the intro completely. :)
You can always change SkipIntro = TRUE; in the ini-file :). But noted.

Another typo noticed (Hell's Arena): "Hell''s arena champion" -> "Hell's Arena Champion" (double apostrophe and capitalization)
Fixed.

Occasionally, I'll see a second advanced trait listed for Eagle Eye:

Eagle Eye(2) <------Extra
Trait
Trait
Trait
Eagle Eye(2) <------Correctly Placed
Trait


It goes away after Eagle Eye(2) becomes Intuition, though.

That's because there ARE two Eagle Eye required traits.  Look for another trait when Intuition becomes available.
