How do you run?
« on: November 30, 2005, 00:53 »

When I press the comma key, the game prompts me on the direction to run but it never seems to work. How do you run?

Thanks.

Hmm, I don't seem to recall implementing running :-|

well, there is this run feature, accesable by typing , and then a direction, but you don't move faster that way.. just saves some time.

edit: actually, i only use this on 1 level, and that is Hell's Arena, to get from the <spoily info> to thestairs asap ;)

lol, it says so in manual.txt. anyway, i've gotten it to work a few times, it seems random. i've tried in every tactic mode, but i can't figure out exactly when it works.

Yeah, I don't run, leads to over running and imps chucking fireballs at me the entire time

edit: till I forget again and like a moron, try to run across a room

I think I used it once.  Seems to have the same effect that "running" does in most RLs: it moves you in the specified direction until you are blocked by a wall/monster.  Doesn't move you any faster in-game, it just skips the turns for you so it takes less time for you.  Useful once you've cleared a floor in some RLs where hallways can get quite large, but DoomRL levels (and rooms) are pretty small.

Pretty funny that you don't remember adding it in, though. XD  Maybe it really DOES have a mind of it's own..?  Would explain why you can't get it to compile right sometimes, and other times it will.

I know why running may not work. If you are on first level and run, it stops at an object, but it considers those red rocks objects so you cannot run :)
