Two staircases
« on: December 07, 2006, 04:45 »

I was on level 6 on HMP. There were two staircases. Near the white one i took a berserk pak, and went for the other stairs. I cant say exactly what color it was, coz of berserk, but there already was one white, wasnt there ? So i came down the other stairs, and got to the ordinary level 7, only it said "you feel there is something special here".

Is that a hidden area or a bug ?

Yes, one of those staircases would have led to a hidden level.  Red staircases always do, and there's a hidden level every 3-6 dungeon levels.

I think you should learn to read what people say, and not what you think they say.

You could try and use look to see what the game says about them. Maybe one of them is just missing the red color for some reason.

Edit: WHen you look at red staircases the text is always "Stairs leading to [special level name]" and normal stairs are always "down stairs"

Sounds like your system is having trouble drawing the colors.
What's your operating system? Have you tried a new, fresh download of the game?

Sounds like a game bug to me.
And when its absolutely certainly ONE staircase on a level, and it leads to a special level - does it really matter what color it is ?

Would sound as a game bug to me if at least two people reported it.

okay, now it happened to me too, only one white staircase was there, and it got me to Hell's Armory

interestingly here also a berserk pack was involved (it lay directly next to the stairs so I'm 100% sure they were white)
maybe it's somehow caused by berserk packs

sadly I didn't 'l'ook at the stairs, but they certainly were the only ones on that level :-[
