I know, I know... forgetting HP level happens to me all the time, too... *roll_eyes*

Strange, the Wall never seemed to me as being overly difficult... Try going through the middle, and just keep feeding the Hell Knights / Barons with rockets. It helps having some decent armor and a couple of healing packs in inventory, too - I'd suggest trying to switch to coward tactics whenever you need to use a medpac or change armor, that way you stand some chance to dodge the acid balls hurled at you.

Though I have to admit that your solution with thermie is by far more kewl ;-) :-D

AoB is very difficult at lower levels, but things'll start to look a lot better once you get your hands on the chainsaw, and when you finally get the LS, the rest is just piece of cake.

Congratulations! I managed to complete AoB with a full win a short while ago, too (though only with some heavy savescumming *shamed_face*). The LS really kick ass! 8-)

Bug Reports / Nuke bug and mortem file
« on: December 09, 2006, 05:17 »
Version: DoomRL win
Platform: Windows XP

Bug description: Activated thermie at the Cybie level, but got killed before the countdown ran out. The bomb did go off and I assume that a partial win should be achieved. However no win message and no mortem was generated, instead the program took the mortem generated in previous game (so I learned that I was killed by arachnotron on L22), and the final score for that game wasn't written in the HighScores.

I did some testing by removing the mortem.txt file from the folder and repeated the process. This time the game crashed, and I got the following error message:

EInOutError: File not found (at $0045A8B6 or something...)
line 138 of vviewer.pas
line 268 of dfhof.pas
line 285 of doombase.pas
line 21 of doomrl.pas

Save game was created successfully, and when loading it I reappeared in Cybie level with -287% health (variable), and got killed by Cybie by a single shot. Normal mortem.txt "Killed by Cyberdemon" was generated, and HighScores showed "Defeated by CD" as well.

Then I tried to simulate the crash with missing mortem file, loaded the crashed save (again with some -265% health), healed myself to full health, and then impaled the Cybie on my shiney LS - this generated a standard win mortem.txt (Marine defeated the CD), but in the HighScores table, the record was shown as "won by sacrifice". This partial win wasn't recorded in Player info, though.

Note: I was playing this on AoB challenge with some heavy savescumming. I also tried to simulate the problem (activate thermie, get killed before it goes off) on a non-Cybie level, but this got me a standard "nuked himself" death, and no crashes.

I'll try to test this futher to see if this bug applies to JC level as well.
