Requests For Features / Mortem files
« on: July 13, 2012, 11:18 »
I wanted to suggest this for quite some time but I always seem to forget it:

How about making the generated mortem files in the same format as when they are posted here on the forums instead of/in addition to the time and date signature? It would make it easier to find a specific mortem in the folder, and you could just copy the file name when posting a mortem...

The picture speaks for itself. I'm not sure if this happens everytime, but this is the first time I noticed it.

0.9.9.6 / [U|AoMC|96%|YAVP] Destroyer Bronze - Platinum
« on: June 27, 2012, 09:14 »
This was a good run. I played it safe and skipped whatever levels could be dangerous. The Armoury gave me nano and firestorm mods. I was considering making gravity boots, but then I just slapped the nano mod on the missile launcher and wreaked havoc with that, since I wasn't planning to get WK anytime soon. It worked out well, since I didn't find more A mods in the game (which might have something to do with the fact that I blasted everything with missiles, but it could also be a hilarious coincidence). Besides, I found the phaseshift armour which gave me (with HR 2) more then enough speed.

I was hoping I'd get Untouchable Cross as well as the medal, but that hope vanished when my own rocket exploded to my face. I think it might have been a pathing bug or something, but I didn't feel like it reproducing it.

I finally got my first Angelic Badge since restarting. This time it was really easy - I could kill four of the viles from my starting position with four 10-shot volleys from the plasma rifle before they could move and while still invulnerable. I made my way for the nuclear BFG on the left without problems since BFG is so effective on AoMC. Before I could grab it, I found that I've already won.

On Hell 6 I found a pain elemental cave and almost got shredded. Only liberal application of standard (nun-nuclear) BFG got me out of that. I skipped Lava pits (and most of the level where the stairs spawned) since I used all the envirosuits avoiding otherwise unavoidable lava damage (first in halls of carnage) and went straight for the standard win.

With 9th platinum, I'll need another diamond to advance my rank. Damn.

0.9.9.6 / [U|AoI|98%|YASD] Damn JC
« on: June 20, 2012, 04:33 »
Tried for eagerness platinum, Lava Silver Badge and got too greedy in the end.

I was hoping for the onyx pack in the armory to make lava boots, but no luck with that. My plan B was rocket jumping, but it didn't come to that, since I found the onyx pack on lvl 18. Lucky. With the lava boots the lava pits were unsurprisingly easy.

The mortuary was fun - with plenty of cells and nuclear plasma, I was hoping to get the angelic badge. I managed to clear the right side without much problems and the nuclear BFG helped a lot from then on. A lot of charges and retreats to let my nuclear arsenal recharge, but it seemed that I'll be able to do it. Then I got hurt by a former sergeant. With Cateye. And it was the last enemy on the level... FUUUUUUUUU-

Anyway, I got lava silver but then my greed got me. I was kinda disappointed that the lava element is absolutely useless on AoI, but level 24 had an invulnerability globe, though it was on the other side of the map. I cleared it, got the invulnerability and rocket jumped to the stairs to nuke the mastermind. So far so good.

I've found energy shield in the lava pits, so I thought nothing can touch me. When I came withing INT2 distance from JC, I blasted him with the nuclear BFG - not a good move. Somehow it resulted in me being completely surrounded by hell barons. I was forced to retreat and kill them. Before I could attack JC again, he summoned lost souls. A lot of them. When they began to surround me, I realized the energy shield doesn't cover melee damage. I blasted a few of them with my regular BFG, but I was too tired to run away and kill them, so I died.¨

But hey, at least I got lava silver. That badge was bothering me for a long time.

Discussion / Unlimited berserk
« on: June 19, 2012, 10:59 »
I've used Azrael's scythe quite a few times in a recent game and got zerked from stepping in lava. That gave me an idea:

Step 1: Get Berserker
Step 2: Find AS or Trigun
Step 3: Use either until you have 35 max HP (5x for marines, 3x for others)
Step 4: Find/make boots that protect you from lava completely
Step 5: ???
Step 6: Profit! Unlimited zerk for free!

Would this work? And is it worth it?

0.9.9.6 / [U|100%|YAAM] Elite Platinum / Scavenger Diamond
« on: June 19, 2012, 09:32 »
I decided to get Elite Platinum badge at last (UV as a Conqueror) and went with my favourite Vampyre build. It took me a lot of tries to learn how to go about it - I had trouble with the unchained court most of all, since I tend to skip it on UV. I knew the assembly of double chainsaw before I wiped my stats, so I decided to build one this game to raise my chances of getting some useful mod (or an assembly I don't know) in the armory. No luck. I didn't find the mods for it soon enough and the armoury gave me - double chainsaw schematics.

I was quite sad that I didn't get a nano mod, since I've come to rely on powered red armor on melee runs. Without indestructible/regenerating armor, I tend to run naked on these runs, because everything gets destroyed. I was able to live with tactical armour, PBA modded red and energy shield when things got rough.

My second objective for this run was to get Scavenger Diamond, so I stockpiled phases. When I reached the vaults, I cleared the side vaults easily, but none of the four phases got me inside the middle one. So I used up all my medkits on Azrael's Scythe and it was barely enough. Too bad I didn't get whatever goodies spawned inside.

I was a little afraid of the mortuary, since I was weakened by the scythe, but I entered it invulnerable and three of the viles were close. I killed two of them, moved towards the third and used a fire skull before the invuln ran out. The rest of the viles were thankfully not far to the right and thanks to the energy shield, it wasn't too difficult to get at them.

JC didn't give me any trouble. I think he got one shot off before I was on him, slaying him in a few blows.

Two platinum and one diamond means I advanced to Mjr General. Nice!

I'm still kinda bugged by the stuff like:

On level 17 he invaded the Unholy Cathedral!
He nuked level 17!
He then destroyed the Unholy Cathedral!

It would be nice to have some special lines for stuff like that and condense it a bit, eg.

On level 17 he invaded the Unholy Cathedral!
He obliterated it by a nuke!

On level 19 he entered the Vaults.
He cast the treasure and its guardians into nuclear fire!

On level 20 he was foolish enough to enter the Mortuary!
A nuclear blast purified this unholy place thoroughly!

Something like that...

I can already see myself nuking the arena on the rare occasion when I get a nuke this early just to see what the mortem says about it =)

Bug Reports / [0.9.9.6G Win] Rockets flying off screen
« on: June 16, 2012, 08:26 »
This is from my last game: I wanted to remove the baron corpses so the viles couldn't reanimate them and the rocket shot straight out of the map. This is exactly where I was aiming at the time (and I shot another rocket after taking the screenshot which did the same).

I suppose this is the same thing as the occasional issue with the Shambler...

This game was crazy. I was playing my standard masterless pistol build on UV, hoping to maybe phase into the vaults and get another diamond badge this way.

The Armoury blessed me with the Trigun, which was great, since I messed up while assembling a bolter. Later I made an energy pistol and from then on I had no problems.

Then level 13 came and gave me an invulnerability globe right next to stairs. I cleared the level the old fashioned way, but then I grabbed the invulnerability, nuked it using Trigun for good measure, descended the stairs and nuked the next level. Turns out there were stairs real close to where I started so I nuked the next level and then used my homing phase to nuke another one... before I knew it I was nuking Cybie and the first level of hell.

I was leveling like crazy from the nukes so I took Iro to offset the permanent HP loss from Angel Arm. RNG kept giving me stairs very close to where I was so I got all the way to mortuary (which I nuked), but lost my invulnerability at last. I though "it was fun when it lasted" and descended the stairs. I spawned right next to both stairs and another invulnerability globe, so I grabbed it and nuked on.

It turns out I nuked every level since lvl 13 plus UC, Mortuary and the Vaults. That's exactly half of the standard levels! Too bad the second invulnerability ran out just as I was descending to Dis, or I would have nuked JC as well. At first I though "At last I can play normally again". But then I decided not to break the pattern and nuked the mastermind for a partial win.

I ended the game with 35 hp, but I was a marine with Iro 5! That means I used 75 hp only on nuking...

So yeah, I got Fallout Platinum Cross - another first for me - though I think I deserve at least Fallout Diamond Cross for this run.

Here's the mortem:

0.9.9.6 / [U|92%|17|YASD] My first diamond!
« on: June 11, 2012, 09:56 »
It's only Gatekeeper Diamond Badge, but it's diamond badge and it's mine!

I realized that I am now able to win standard UV games most of the time, so I decided to give this diamond badge a try. I've passed the anomaly without damage a lot of times, though it never occurred to me that I should probably get dodgemaster and RNG never gave me an invulnerability before Cybie on these runs.

So my plan was to go with my standard masterless pistol build but then to get DM instead of WK. Then it's just a matter grabbing the missile launcher in the wall and hope for a lucky phase in the anomaly. Once that is done, get DM and get to Cybie as soon as possible.

Well, I was distracted by a lot of stuff during this run (note it took over 2 hrs) which lead to me skipping the Wall... stupid mistake. Luckily the phase in anomaly got me exactly where I wished to be (behind the second door but without triggering the bruisers) and with some lucky dodges I managed to clear it without damage. I stopped in Hell's Armoury since I still have assemblies to discover but I didn't risk spider's lair or city of skulls (with a pistol build, yeah, right).

Anyway, I got to cybie, killed him, and then got killed on first level of hell after being mauled by a scumbag baron of hell that must have been wearing bulletproof vest or something. I don't know exactly, since I eventually annihilated him with a hellwave pack, which allowed an arachnotron to get a clear shot at me.

Still, first diamond badge is mine =)

I've finally made masochist platinum. Phew!

At first I was trying shottyhead, but for some reason I couldn't get it right, so I switched to Cateye. My plan was get Cateye as normal and then quickly dodgemaster so I can pass cybie easily. By the time I reach the mastermind, I should have a full tactical set and be able to outrun her. Fine theory, but it took me a while to learn to execute it. What really helped me was realizing that cateye is awesome with missile laucher. More so if you don't have to worry about health globes getting destroyed. I tried to carry at least 4 full backpacked stacks of rockets but it was never enough for me. Too bad that I didn't find a nano pack =)

Anyway, this run was pretty unremarkable, but a hilarious thing happened in one of the prior attempts. I was almost dead, but managed to reach Cybie who spawned a few tiles from me. I activated running to be safe and with a speed of about 0.3 moves per second moved into free space in front of him and started moving from side to side to dodge his first rocket. Since I was so fast, it took quite some time until he decided to shoot - and he shot me right into my face, killing me instantly. Then I realized that I accidentally skipped spider's lair and so didn't have dodgemaster yet...

Anyway, a few runs later (once getting killed by the mastermind, damn my cockiness) and I'm just one platinum badge short of my record.

Bug Reports / Healing in Angel of Masochism
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:21 »
Medical armour heals even on this challenge. Bug or feature? In any case it just probably saved my ass.

Incidentally, blood skulls work as well, which makes them one of the best items to get on that challenge.

43
So decided to try to finish a pacifist run on N! I've already beat it on HMP and UV is tough, but the bonuses on N! are quite good and it's not that I'm bothered by monsters respawning.

This is the best I managed so far - Deimos lvl 6, almost to Cybie. That gives me the hope that it can be done. I just have to be a little more lucky.
BTW, I nearly got gatekeeper platinum out of this run - I got an invulnerability just before anomaly, but I had to go through the wall. If only I've found normal stairs instead, it would have lasted me past the bruisers. Maybe some other time.

Discussion / Let's go shoe shopping!

I've realized that I wear tactical boots almost all the time - unless I'm wearing phaseshift or antigrav boots that is. If I'm lucky enough to find the environboots, I keep them as a convenience, but forget about them most of the time.

It seems to me there is almost always a way to get across lava. If there isn't, you can make it yourself using a rocketlauncher. If there is absolutely no way I can get where I need to go without spending too much time in lava, I use an envirosuit.

I haven't discovered the schematics for cerberus boots yet, and I see in the mortems people are assembling them often, but is that really necessary? I just passed Ao100 wearing tactical boots or nothing the whole time and I probably lost only about 50 HP during the whole game to hurtfloors.

Am I doing something wrong, or maybe it's just my playing style? What is your preference when it comes to boots?

I made it!

I've found that the difference between at least a semi-successful Ao100 run and YASD before getting the master trait is finding some nice armour - the random armour drops can't keep up with the increasingly hostile environment. In this run, it was an energy-shielded vest, ABP modded eventually. 50% resistance to all the damage types that count is really great. Once I got berserker, zerk moved this number up to 95%. Hard to top that passive defense.
Later on I found Malek's Armor, which meant more speed with less resistances (but still nice 90% when zerked). I ended up switching them randomly after a few levels (or if the energy-shielded vest got too damaged).

I relied on one of the two laser rifles I found with a tactical (and later missile) launcher as backup. Everything was pretty smooth once I got going - not even the occasional Cybies, lava and agony elementals gave my any trouble.

Level 32 gave me the Hell Staff, which was very useful to me.

There were two... bumps... in this run. Somewhere around level 50 I forgot to keep track of ammo (kinda easy with ammochain) and found that I only have the 40 shots left in my rifle. Luckily there was a room filled with arachnotrons who were kind enough to share their cells with me. Second time the same thing happened on level 99. Oops! I loaded on rockets and killed most of the last level with the missile launcher and fists (at least I put the Bru 2 into good use). I think I used more large medkits there than on any other level, since I had to get into some dangerous fights and I didn't really care about saving them (and I had an impressive hoard by then). In the end it worked out pretty well.

Centurial Silver Badge
Centurial Gold Badge
Centurial Platinum Badge

Too bad I got the bronze one somewhere on the road... In any case, since I restarted, this is my first badge that I didn't have previously, so that's something I guess.
