Oh man that's too bad, I really don't plan to post here 20 times. In fact this is probably my last post.
Verification is too cumbersome, content is too poorly organized, and I already have too many forums to keep up with.

I'm sorry it's that cumbersome -- you must understand the constant tide of stupid spammers we need to fight.

Why not post some mortems of the games you play?  I'm sure there are enough interesting ones for you to get to the point where you can do your own edits.  It will also establish credibility that you know what you are talking about when you make the edits too.

So, I'm getting back into playing some DoomRL again and I am on a strongman run. Suddenly, I realise I have a knife in my hand... Now, I'm unsure if I just used it to open some crates before I got up form the computer to take a break or if I have actually killed something using the knife. Is there any way to know?

Damn. I had a nice start this time around - got myself a couple of nukes and a ballistic vest that couldve helped keeping the 100% kill dream alive.

Yes. Finish the game or get killed. Schrödinger's cat must be laughing at you :S

If it's alive, I guess!

But it would seem to me taht I can only know, if I win the game using bare fists all the way from here on. I wouldn't be any wiser, if I died along the way as I would get no award.

Unfortunately, yes, that's your only option. At least you'll have had a good practice round.

Looking for an apostle right now, I'm wondering...
Do you need LUCK to get it in a regular game ?

I mean, from what I know, you need to <censored spoiler>, then get DS & BA, then nuke Spidey, but... what if you didn't find a nuke ?

I'm entering spider's lair with 2 invu globes right now, and got a nuke a few levels earlier, which I would gladly have spent here, but...  I just can't affort to waste it, can I ?  (my goal is that damn apostle, btw)
Getting zerk stuff is hard enough, adding a luck factor to allow getting the Apostle seems pretty unfair to me

There's no luck involved if im correct. If you fulfill the specific conditions, the Apostle will spawn. As for nukes, you can always find the Nuclear BFG in Limbo/Mortuary and overload it to trigger a nuke.

Yeah, sure about the conditions, but the question which remains is : how am I supposed to overload a nuclear weapon with a cursed blade in my hands ?

As one who has The Sight, I can confirm that there is little to no luck involved in getting the Apostle consistently.

Literally, there is a chain of events that need to occur.  That's as much as I am willing to say.

Whoops, didn't think about that. I guess you have to get a lucky nuke then..

Oh wow, you're right!  I never thought of that.  Unless there's a secret way to consistently come up with a Thermonuclear Bomb, you really do need a lot of luck because nukes are a pretty uncommon drop.

As one who has The Sight, I can confirm that there is little to no luck involved in getting the Apostle consistently.

Literally, there is a chain of events that need to occur.  That's as much as I am willing to say.

I'm aware that there's a way to consistently get DS and BA to spawn, but I have never seen any mention of a way to consistently spawn a Thermonuclear Bomb.  Evilpotatoe raises a good point that if you have the Dragonslayer in your hands, you won't be able to wield the Nuclear BFG to overload it to nuke the Mastermind.  Is this an oversight on the part of the Devteam?  Or is there something I'm missing?  (I hope you can tell me that much)

While I don't know how, it seems there's a way.
Maybe going damageless, maybe 100%, maybe... bah, it requires superpowers that mere mortals like us don't have anyway.



New question, about the combat knife ! (seeking Gargulec cross...)

On the alternate fire page, the wiki says :
Throwing ignores attack speed bonuses and always takes 1.0s
=> What does "always" mean. I think there is an "exception" for scouts.  Throwing would not be an attack action, hence not reduced by Finesse, but scout's 10% action speed probably applies, doesn't it ?  Is there any other possible modifier ?

Also,
throwing accepts melee-only damage bonuses
=> ok for +toDam, but it looks like +toHit remains the ranged one.  Does it mean that improving knife accuracy would require EE ?  Does A-modding a knife (slightly) help ?  Is it possible to... S-mod a knife ?!

Could you tell me how to disable effects that make screen red from berserk, white from invulnerablity, etc?

I have Wizkid 2 perk, and red armor with power mod installed. I want to get eventually cybernano armor, so I try to install second power mod, but get message "This item can not be modified anymore with this mod!". Whats the matter?
