Major rank requirements don't show up correctly
« on: December 16, 2006, 14:41 »

One of the requirements for Major is "win the game on at least Hurt Me Plenty". I won one hame on HMP prior to becoming captain and one after I became captain (both wins show up in the stats) but it's still not greyed out in the requirements list.

Maybe there meant at least on UV, because it is greyed in my status. But anyway it is not good, that requirement not compares to text.

I posted it here 'cause it seems related:

--------------------------- DOOMRL Player Info ------------------------------
                                                                             
  Skill rank      : Major                              former human    1855   
  Experience rank : Cacodemon                          former sergeant 1219   
  Games won       : 9          Partial wins  : 1       former captain  473   
  All kills       : 8595       Standard wins : 7       imp             905   
  Melee kills     : 1454       Full wins     : 1       demon           1176   
                                                       lost soul       1062   
  To achieve General rank:                             cacodemon       636   
   -- win the game on at least Ultra-Violence          baron of hell   220   
   -- complete the Angel of Berserk challenge          Cyberdemon      7     
   -- complete the Angel of Masochism challenge        hell knight     351   
   -- win the game on at least Nightmare!              arachnotron     323   
                                                       John Carmack    1     
                                                       former commando 145   
                                                       Angel of Death  1     
                                                       pain elemental  146   
                                                       arch-vile       75     
  Difficulty level achievements                  Deaths    Kills             
  I'm too young to die! : fully won (1 win total)14        1829               
  Hey, Not Too Rough    : won (5 win total)      55        4542               
  Hurt Me Plenty        : won (2 win total)      2         955               
  Ultra-Violence        : won (1 win total)      25        952               
  Nightmare!            : reached level 4        5         317               
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The first 2 requirements are greyed out, the second 2 are still red - and that fits just fine, but it doesn't make any sense to me that there're both UV and N! requirements for the same rank.
If it makes any difference, I had done UV and AoB before reaching Major rank.

Did you win a normal game on HMP, or was it a challenge mode? It may be possible that challenge games are ot counted in the "win on HMP" requirement, but I have no way to verify this now...

It seems to me that Valkeera is right, because i have won UV 5 times in different challenges, but player board shows that i still need to win at least UV to archieve General rank. I haven't won UV in normal game.

I just tested it on the Corporal rank with Angel of Darkness challenge - completed it with a standard win - and for advancement to Lieutenant, the "win the game" condition was not greyed! So the problem indeed is that the game doesn't recognize won challenges as advancement conditions met.

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but it's seriously unfair! :-)

Yes, it's really unfair. I had won Nightmare!, but because i done it in AoH, it won't count as requirement to General rank.

Well, actually, that's maybe a case where it IS fair, if the idea was going through all 26 levels of N!, but it does seem unintentional.

Sorry about the crappy format. I just beat the game on HMP, even beat the mortuary! I didn't level up to major. Reach level 15 is greyed out. Do you have to also do all the challenges? And are the challenges registering? Is that part of the problem?

Yes, you'll need to meet all mentioned requirements to advance to the mentioned next rank. In your case you still need to reach L5 in AoB and L10 in AoM to advance to the sergeant rank (You still have a long way until Major).

Also, put character screens and other screenshots between [code ] [/code ] tags.
