[M| idk?|99%?|16|YASD my first time playing
« on: March 06, 2013, 04:44 »

This was my first time playing.
The game is awesome, but I have many questions.....So the red stairs are levels? Didn't use those, the red stairs scared me. Am I supposed to enter those? What are angels for?
Is my score any good?
What's with the percentage? is 99% correct? I took this from character dump....so many questions.
Anyways. awesome, hooked already AliensRL looks fun hell as well.
Sorry if i'm a complete noob, but if you could point me in the direction to find some answers, that' be swell.

I enjoy that it calls me a real killing machine. I like that.
Didn't I read somewhere it's easy to run out of ammo? I had to throw away ammo all the time, 10mm at least, and still had tons of it when i died.
So many questions.

Red stairs are for special (non random) levels. You'll need to enter in to know if they are worth it. Just avoid Unholy cathedral, which is a melee-only level (unless you play melee, of course). For the other, you'll get some stupid death, but this is kinda necessary in roguelikes.
My advice is to try them asap, since ignoring them looks like an important handicap to me (less xp, and you lose rewards).

Angel are challenges with restriction, just to make the game more difficult. In other words, finish the game normally before trying them.

Your kill percentage looks correct, and good.
I don't pay attention to score. It depends on challenge type, difficulty level, kill percentage, levels completed...


To find informations, the beset source I know is the wiki. http://doom.chaosforge.org/wiki/DoomRL_Wiki
Since it also contains spoilers (special level maps, assemblies, monsters stats, etc.), you might prefer to avoid it until you know enough of the game. it's up to you to choose. (Personally, I consider "spoilers" are just game's rules, but opinions highly differ about this :)
Of course, the forum contains a lot of informations about many topics, including the sticky "quick question threads".

So many questions.
Evilpotatoe already answered most of your questions, so I'll address the others:
Being a "real killing machine" is related to your kill rate. This particular title is (IIRC) awarded for >90% non-perfect kill rate (100% has a different one).
Running out of ammo is unlikely to happen in a normal game and/or on lower difiiculties. Trouble may easily come on harder difiiculties (UV and N!), in weapon-restricted challenges (Angel of Marksmanship/Shotgunnery) or in Angel of 100, or in any combination thereof.
Oh, and if you made it to the Cyberdemon on your first try, then you have some serious talent and a bright DoomRL future at hand :).

I see....

Thanks for the replies, indeed very helpful.
So I will glance at the wiki and try not to get to spoiled on it.
Next time I play I will not be afraid of the gloomy red stairs and go see what's there.
I will also not carry around 1000s shots of ammo anymore on lower difficulties.

Is the combat shotgun better than the double shotgun? In later level I always saw the combat shotgun, nevermore the double, but from the D&D-like stats, the double shotgun does more damage, no? But you need not bother answering this, i'll figure it out.

I will lurk some more here, trying to figure out some of the abbrev. you so frequently use.
Probably try out AlienRL as well, and donate some money

If anyone wants to know: phreakindee on youtube (Lazy Game reviews) recommended DoomRL to me, also I have played Nethack before (didn't like it), desktop dungeon (liked it even less) and dwarf fortress (liked it, but too time consuming, too complex for my taste)
So okay, thx for the help.

Man, it looks like you almost killed the Cyberdemon too!  :o  (On my first ever try, I died in Hell's Arena)  I look forward to seeing more mortems from you.  :)

And yeah, the "Killing Machine" line was because you got 99% kills.  If you get 100% kills, it calls you an "Ass-Kicking Marine," and then you have the right to put YAAM in your mortem title.  :)

EDIT:  Oh, and as for the part about "Angels," you can leave that part blank in the thread title if you're playing a regular game.  You only write something there if you selected one of the challenge modes, and then the mortem will say something like "He was an Angel of Berserk!"

Yeah, I almost cracked the demon (almost dead, maybe 2 shots missing).
Had i squandered 1 or 2 fewer rockets in earlier levels, I would have probably splattered it instead.

I need to read up on the weapons a bit too. Double shotgun (P1) and rocket launcher (P1) were way fun; The shotgun often fragged 2 or 3 low enemies with on shot. But I can't but wonder if I had better stuff available. Need to find what those mods actually do.

I shall consult the wiki for teh insights. And probably will get to play at least half a run today.

 Thanks for the info everyone.
