Off Topic / Re: How long have you been playing doomrl?
« on: April 10, 2010, 14:42 »
I think I've been playing since senior year of high school, so that makes it roughly three years, if not more.

Discussion / Re: How hard is programming?
« on: April 10, 2010, 14:28 »
I've been doing some programming in college for the last two years and it's not really all that bad once you start learning to think like a computer and learn how to organize data in logical fashions.  Really, with games, the issue is usually interface and how the user is expected to interact with it.  It also depends on whether you're using object-oriented programming or not.  I'd suggest finding a book or two on programming and then promptly downloading it in PDF format from some sketchy as all hell web site.  Or, alternatively, check it out from a library, as piracy is generally bad.

Really, programming is easy once you learn the syntax and what the limits of your coding language of choice are.  It's a skill that can grow exponentially over time if you put a lot of effort into it.

This is my first successful YAAM run in .9.9.1.  All I can say is "Wow!"  Ammochain is super easy mode!  I got two silver medals in one run, unlocked sergeant major, and I am supremely happy!  I avoided most of the special levels to guarantee a 100% victory run.  Triple-modding the plasma rifle to be super fast was great, and just tossing iron man towards the end was just icing on the cake.  Next up is Ao100!

Seriosuly, though, ammochain is terrifyingly good, assuming you live long enough.

I pulled this off not too long after my AoMr run, forgot to post, then realized that I have a mortem archive!  Angel of Haste run that was loads of fun.  Relied mostly on pistols with a little bit of help from whatever else I could find.  Eventually made it to the Cyberdemon, but he proved too strong for me.  That's OK, though, because the nuke was too much for the both of us!  First successful Angel of Haste run and first partial victory.  The BFG, Rocket Launcher, and Plasma Rifle did their best, but the pistols really kept me going.

After a successful AoMr run and then relying on pistols largely for this run, I really have to ask how damn good pistols can be.  I used to love shotguns, but now pistols are like perfect murder machines, barring spawning in a room full of Arachnotrons.

0.9.9.1 / Re: [M|AoMr|72%|25|YAVP] Uniques are for wimps!
« on: March 23, 2010, 00:44 »
I find that having one very accurate and fast pistol a level before having two slightly slowly, inaccurate, weaker guns is definitely worth it.  After that, straight damage ended up working.  I later did an Angel of Haste run based on insanely fast pistols and made it to the Cyberdemon and managed a sacrificial nuke.  Sadly, I forgot to post the mortem for that one.  Two successful runs in one day!  I almost pulled off a successful ITYTD knife-only run, but the last few levels really got me.

This is my first successful run since the release of .9.9.1.  I was going mad the last few days trying to complete AoMr so I could finally hit sergeant rank and earn some more challenge game opportunities.

Anyway, this was my first try at a high-damage pistol build, and it worked amazingly well for me.  Throwing tech mods on my pistols when I had the chance made things loads of fun, as did getting a myriad of agility mods and throwing them on armor.  Son of a Bitch was icing on the cake, making Barons, Knights, and even Bruiser Brothers drop before me.  Once I got to Hell, though, I mostly bolted for the exit.

Other fun bits included using the Chained Court and Halls of Carnage largely for farming a little experience and megaspheres.  Sadly, the Vaults only had two rocket launchers and some shotguns.  Lame!  Regardless, smashed through everything I could.  You'll also notice I killed no Mancubi; in fact, I didn't see or even hear any!  Lucky me.  I can't stand the suckers.

I know this run isn't too amazing, but I can't stop playing.  It's one of the few games I've played constantly since high school.
