As for telling if a square with an item has lava underneath, there is a way to tell albeit not a very convenient one.  If the square is outside of your line of sight, you will see either the lava or floor underneath (and not the item).  Of course, this isn't very helpful if you're being chased, or if you have the map power-up, but it can come in handy if you're exploring the level after killing all the enemies.

I agree there needs to be a way to tell.  Perhaps a job for the 'l'ook function?

Bug Reports / Re: Random Crashes
« on: October 11, 2008, 15:01 »
I think I've noticed the same thing.  I also remember this being reported before and Kornel saying something like SDL was the problem, so he couldn't fix it.  I turned off music in doomrl.ini and haven't had a crash since.  You can still play music in the background with some other program.  Hope this helps.

Requests For Features / Re: Envirosuits suggestion.
« on: July 13, 2008, 15:29 »
This is a cool idea.  I often carry one envirosuit pack anyway--they can be especially handy for exploring cave-type levels that are mostly filled with lava, and I find that there is still plenty of inventory space for other goodies--so it's not necessarily that I think envirosuit packs need to be stronger.  I just like the idea of having multiple uses for items because it can create interesting choices.

I think full immunity would be a little too strong.  Maybe a 50% reduction of damage or +5 armor or something?  Having one of these shouldn't make The Wall too easy (:

I thought we were supposed to be able to bore through walls with other weapons, now, too? Chaingun seems to not work.

The chaingun is not good for destroying walls because walls have a lot of armor (I'm not sure how much).  You need a weapon that does more damage in one shot.

If you're on a high enough difficulty level, the monsters will pick up the ammo in those rooms, making it safe to open them with a rocket launcher.  Also, those monsters have an attack that can destroy walls -- sometimes you can use this to open a safe return path.  Finally, picking up extra berserk packs will ensure that you are berserking both ways when crossing the lava -- this is usually quite safe as berserking reduces the lava damage by a lot.

Finally!  Hooray!

This wasn't my best run, but I got lucky with stairs near the end, and had invulnerability for cybie.

The City of Skulls was very welcome ... it's very easy to pick up a BFG with almost no risk, as long as you have a rocket launcher and a rocket.

I went through the Spider Lair (without even trying to kill anything) because I was less scared of the spiders than the huge mass of viles, barons, etc that was guarding the other stairs.

I almost ran out of ammo on the cyberdemon -- except I had saved the Blaster for just such an occasion.  Luckily, I didn't ever have to use it.  I did have to unload the last 32 cells from my BFG to reload my plasma rifle, though.

Also, the mortem says I nuked the cyberdemon, but I didn't.  Hopefully this gets fixed for the next release.

Now I get to try winning AoI!  (Oh no!)

Spider lair got cleared because I was invincible and had a BFG.

And, in case anyone is counting, 80000 is probably the exp needed for level 14 because I was at 0% to next level.

In the AoD description "harbringer" should be "harbinger".

Also, when you exit The Wall without killing all the enemies, it says "Hearing them scream soothens the soul...";
"soothens" should be "soothes".

(PS: I love this game.)

edit:

Additionally in the JC description it says "...word lof mercy..."; it should be "...word of mercy...".
