how come I can never pass Hell's Arena on AoD?...I can't for my life wreck all of them down, they either constantly reappear, or get revived like in Nightmare!
They ARE reviving like in Nightmare!. That's one of the changes that AoD imposes: I'm surprised you never noticed it until then. But yeah, corpse-stacking is a pretty good way to deal with reviving enemies when you don't have explosives handy.

Yeah, it has taken me by surprise as well. The challenge description (intentionally, probably) doesn't mention this little fact.

Why on AoB 0.9.9.5. large healing globes don't give any berserk, and in challenge description is written that they work as berserk packs?

Not sure if this should go in the Modding forum, but it seemed too small to warrant a new thread.
Is there any way to find out what sprite number each item uses, or is it just trial and error to find the ideal number?

Nothing other than trial and error for now, correct. I'll try to include a page on the modding section of the wiki that has all of the sprites and their corresponding sprite number.

For this I would recommend something like:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Then in the .run function of your module:
Code: [Select]
core.log(dump(items))
It will dump out all of the properties of all of the items in log.txt. So you'll see stuff like:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
which of course includes the "sprite" property.

however, that is unwise. Internally the sprites are referenced by names and not numbers -- and once GH has a moment he'll post the name list to the wiki.

This will make it way easier to keep compatibility if the spritesheets change.

Question about 0.9.9.6 keybindings.lua

In previous version (up to 0.9.9.5) , i used to bind the (regular) shotgun and pistol to the PageUp and PageDown of my keyboard.
So in the keybindings.lua i had :
   PAGEDOWN     = function() command.quick_weapon('pistol') end,
   PAGEUP     = function() command.quick_weapon('shotgun') end,

And it worked very well.


In 0.9.9.6, all i obtain from this is "unknown command" , i have tried with :
   PAGEDOWN     = function() command.quick_weapon('pistol') end,
   PAGEUP     = function() command.quick_weapon('shotgun') end,

or
   ["PAGEDOWN"]    = function() command.quick_weapon('pistol') end,
   ["PAGEUP"]     = function() command.quick_weapon('shotgun') end,

All my other key binding are working, but i'm unable to make those 2 work in 0.9.9.6, is there a solution ?

This function will dump out all of the sprite constants:
Code: [Select]
local function dumpsprites()
local t = {}
for k,v in pairs(_G) do
if (string.sub(k,1,6) == "SPRITE") then
core.log(k .. " = " .. v)
end
end
end

And here they are:

the pathfinding has been really improved, previously I had a very easy time in City of Skulls with a Vampyre, because souls lined up in a queue in an attempt to attack me from diagonals, now they don't stack like this but instead get around corners and monsters and can surround you in no time. For this reason I start having major trouble in Anomaly, I even expect that souls have got a speed/walkspeed boost in the line of 0.3s/tile, I was able to outrun them previously, but now I can't.

Yeah, the Lost Souls are scary right now. And even demons can no longer be easily escaped by running through a door and closing it. It also helps that the melee enemy bug (which I thought of as "Gay pinkies syndrome") is gone. The lost souls are now very quick in dispersing around the map.
