Berserk! 0.8 - Release Candidate 4
« on: January 19, 2007, 11:34 »

This is probably the last Release Candidate for 0.8. The next version will be official, and will have probably no more new feature. I'll release it after I see that all is well with RC4. Please take a look at the help system (had to write most of it myself, thanks that at least Adral did a Getting Started primer), and see if there are no ugly typos. The official release will be probably tommorow.

Here's the new feature's list
-- [add] help system and help files!
-- [add] three new forest only monsters ;]
-- [mod] bulldemons have a special attack now!
-- [mod] changed attr costs
-- [mod] made stronger monster appear on Endless later
-- [fix] jumping should now also work when being doesn't die
-- [fix] attr choice now affect next skill choice
-- [fix] missile hits outside sight range are no longer reported

Strange, but new version seems to even be harder than previous ones. I don't know why, but maybe because new monster generation system. By the way, i have seen 2 Wraiths on level 2, and Defiler on level 3, you can see it in my record.

Dextirity gives some real advantage when it have 16 points. But you need to survive 6 levels with pretty low damage, so i need to create some ideal proportion of strength/dextirity picking.

I really begin to hate Bulldemons with their new ability!

Heh, I'm sorry about the wiki help bit. But I am in exams time at my university so I don't have much time left! But when I finish them I'll try to get that finished ;)

@Blade - I noticed one thing on your replay - you conerve ammo too much. Notice that there is a hardcap ion how much of each you can carry - no more than 5 bombs, and no more than 3 spare cannon shots (+1 in magazine). And since you get 2 bobmbs/night and 1 cannon shot PLUS the refill in magazine if it's empty IIRC, you can use them a little bit more.

@Tougher monsters - yup, Blade is right - first try and I got wraith and defiler on night 1

@Reduced stat costs - I think that person that suggested doubling points gained each night rather than cutting costs was right. Resaon? Cutting costs = cutting points on start = less points left on willpower that is the only stat that didn't get "cut"

[edit]

@Bulldemons - right now they can charge while beeing in close combat with the player.... I was under impression this was supposed to work rather like player's Impale attack (i.e. minimum 1 free space inbetween to use it?

It seems a bit too much difficult, even on the first night (which I did not survive 5 times in a row).

Phasehounds showed up, 3 times, as one of the first enemy. They are a bit overpowered in their attack (damn my idea.. :-| )..

Can't say anything about the rest, I cannot pass the first night..

The "Choose your mode!" screen still says "sais" instead of "says."
