-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 70 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 57 of those were killed.

 3 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 6 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 4 souls claim to have killed him...
 4 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------


Angel of Red Alert this time, as I'm still short two silver badges for my next rank.  (If I had a homing phase I'd hit Mortuary just for another silver - as I don't feel I have time to deal with everything there.  For this reason I also considered a hit-and-run on the City of Skulls instead of daring Halls of Carnage - I'm not sure how thermonuclear warheads handle lava.)

Not knowing the right build for an AoRA game, I went with Cateye - this and the odds that I won't survive the Cyberdemon are both excuses for the name I pick.

I somehow luck out right away - four medpacks and 100% health.  Things were going well until level 3, when I had to abandon 100% kills due to time (I make it a point to prolong 100% kills as long as possible).  I would not completely clear another floor until level 6, which gave me a Tracking Computer (or whatever the upgraded Computer Map is called) so I could find all the monsters efficiently. 

Worth noting that I didn't find a combat shotgun until the same floor that I found a rocket launcher - so most of the work was done with a pistol.  Though I did find enough mods to assemble a gatling gun by floor 9 - something I thought was worthwhile given my build covers for accuracy issues somewhat.  It saw use until I ran out of ammo for it around floor 24.

Are there any special levels I can reasonably expect to do in Angel of Red Alert?  I didn't chance most of them, thinking they wouldn't be reasonably clearable in that time.  I was forced to enter The Wall, however, as I hadn't found the regular stairs in time - and I did kill a few barons but didn't feel I could finish the whole thing.

Hell level 2 is worth noting.  I had eight large medpacks by that point.  One archvile, one baron, and one mancubus later (they were all within sight range when I started!), I was down to three and was out a full red armor.

I literally just hit Mortuary for the easy silver, not knowing this run would grant me Armorer Silver.  No way was I clearing it under time pressure, equipped as I may have been.  Luckily the stairs I got when using my homing phase device led to a nuclear BFG9000.  UNluckily, the last two levels did not provide me an invulnerability to use it.

I actually found a chainsaw (since I hadn't grabbed one earlier in the run, that meant insta-berserk) and megasphere on floor 24.  With that in mind, I actually forsook that BFG9000 against the Cyberdemon and just let him have it with my Plasma Rifle.  Game, set, match.

Luck decided to give me a good hand - scratch that, an AMAZING hand - near the end.  Of course, I was taking no chances, having actually lost a Max Carnage game at floor 24 before.  I avoided special levels unless either forced due to time (The Wall) or felt I could get something out of them (the Mortuary).


On another note, I haven't been following things for a while - is window resizing planned for later DoomRL releases?  I actually played this game with a magnifier program to compensate for the resolution of my monitor (1280x1024), because that resolution makes the game window microscopic on my screen.

At this point, my rank means I can completely forgo Bronze badges from here on out - technically I could forgo any badges as I have all challenge modes unlocked, but why not have something to strive for?  I need two silvers for my next rank (the single gold I have is the Vaults one as part of that failed Max Carnage attempt I mentioned).

I assume that you are running vista or win7? If so you can try cons2tcod or NotEYE do get a fullscreenable console display.

Yeah, Vista on this one and Win7 on my laptop.  NOTEye is probably the one I'll consider more.

Anyways, I reviewed badges and it looks like my next game will be an HMP melee game, maybe even AoB.  Possible badges include UAC Silver, Berserker Silver, Gatekeeper Silver, Strongman Gold (I already have that silver - the mortem's titled "Self-imposed challenges are funny"), and/or Longinus Gold.  (Whether I aim for Strongman Gold or Longinus Gold depends on my experiences in the Unholy Cathedral - if I pass that minimally, odds are I'll forgo Strongman Gold.  And Veteran Silver's too risky in a melee game IMO.)
