Title says it all, really. It's making my death totals look really weird now that I've done 30 or so failed quartermaster diamond runs.

I'm assuming that the reason dying to the Cyberdemon while a nuke is active counts as a partial win is because of this. If this bug does get fixed, I'd like Kornel to make sure that an exception is added to make sure that dying to the Cyberdemon with a nuke active still counts as a partial win rather than a death.

 Thomas, level 10 Arch-Vile Lt. General, defeated the Cyberdemon
 on level 25 of the Phobos base.
 He survived 88682 turns and scored 95650 points.
 He played for 1 hour, 6 minutes and 12 seconds.
 He didn't like it too rough.

 He killed 495 out of 502 hellspawn. (98%)

Do you know how many 95% AoHu runs there are on this site? Getting those last few revenants is HARD.

 He held his right to remain violent.
 He was an Angel of Humanity!


 He saved himself 2 times.

Heroic Gold is "Collect 24 of the 40 or so medals". A pretty hard gold, up there with N! AoLT.
Every Soldier's Medal is a brainchild of my own: clear the wall on AoHu. Disapointingly, I wasn't the first person to get it.
I'll try to be the first to get 'Medal of Honor', though. That'll be a doozy.
Hey, I also invented the untouchable badge! Man, I'm feeding my own addiction here.

Finesse two and a tactical shotgun is all you need, offense-wise.
Getting TaN later than my guide says to, but you don't really need more than 4 armour until hell knights start showing up.
It does mean you have to bulk mod your red armour earlier than you might like, though.

    [d] [ Prepared   ]   modified BFG 9000 (10d8) [0/130] (B1)

I picked up a stack power cells in the arena and never dropped them or picked up more. I used them in the cyberdemon fight.
I'm pretty good at this whole planning ahead thing, I'd like to think.

If I tried, I probably could've done the vaults and the mort, or maybe even a full win.
Heck, I would've done the mort if I didn't have a big scare with a couple of revenants on levels 21-23.

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 539 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 447 of those were killed.
 5 of those were killed by something unknown.
 40 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 18 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

EDIT: Man, I was reading over this and thought I should explain my 40 nuke deaths.
Every failure on AoRA, regardless of how you died, counts as a nuke death.
I've tried UV/AoRA/100% about 35 times now, I suppose.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 29 souls claim to have killed him...
 4 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 25 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Two more points that I didn't sneak in to the mortem:

The tactical shotgun is a new assembly in 0.9.9.3. It's overpowered. The mods you start with on AoHu mean you can assemble it on level 2 (as I did) and become a force of nature.

The Wall was easier than expected. By making a hole in the bottom of the wall, I could just stand in it and shoot my tactical shotgun upwards around the wall. I got hit once or twice, but I think I already had my [6/6] armour by then, or at least a regular red.

Requests For Features / Monster knockback reduction
« on: April 10, 2011, 22:56 »
So I was going through AoHu (abruptly ended when I realised that even 20 HP and 7 armour is not enough to survive a lava barrel explosion) with my Combat Shotgun (9d3) [5/5] (P2T3) when I realised how absurdly easy the game is once you get a decent combat shotgun and some levels of finesse.

What makes me think that some monsters need natural knockback reduction is my favourite hellgate trick, the one where you hide behind the northern wall and fire/reload/fire/reload so quickly that you can push back both of the bruiser brothers before either can attack you.

In my opinion, bigger and heavier enemies should have much more knockback resistance. Revenants and Hell Knights get about -30%, Barons and Arachnotrons get about -50% and Mancubi/Minibosses get -70% or so.

On the other hand, flying enemies should have about +100% knockback and be buffed in some way to compensate (Cacodemons just get some stat increases, pain elementals that you've injured will spawn lost souls even if you can't see them)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Kornel likes to think that he's made Ao100 more fun and exciting. Well, he has to an extent, but by god it's still so ridiculously boring.

I went in there with the goal "UV Ao100 YAAM without master traits" but the YAAM part was dropped at level 25 for sanity-keeping reasons. Without MAD (which I wouldn't've gotten anyway because nothing blocks finesse and still gets picked by me) chewing through enemies, even with my ridiculous P3T2 combat shotgun, takes a long time. The hyperblaster could get rid of Bruisers and Shamblers in a single clip, so that would usually be what I use if I really have to fight one of them.

I did this game for three reasons, the centurial platinum badge and the experience medal, to see if it's still boring (it is) and to have some actual experience on the subject when talking to other players and writing my guide. I can now sum up the Ao100-specific features of the game thusly:

a) Once you've gone totally mad and are just running for the stairs every level, remember to stop for the occaisional ammo refill when you see a sergeant with a nearby arch-vile.
b) Once you have TaN 5, you are invincible. Viles, revenants and boss enemies may do up to 6% damage to someone with TaN 5 and Iro 3-5, so watch out for them when you're running around on red HP.
c) 1-25 are the same as normal, 25-50 is level 24 played 25 times in a row, 50-75 can actually get kind of hectic (Oh god watch out for nightmare arachnotron caves) 76-100 is somehow easy again. I guess boss enemies count as a lot of monsters when spawning, sucking up the vile count which is literally the only source of difficulty.
d) All extra enemies, by the time they have been introduced, are just annoying wusses with the exception of the cyberdemon. But he fears lava (for some reason) so he's not as annoying as bruisers and shamblers.

All that spare armor, HP packs and hellwave was for if I ever ran out of berserk. Turns out when you have Azrael's Scythe you have about a 50% chance on every hit to go more berserk, so that didn't happen. (How to balance AoB: Make the chance of berserking directly proportional to the square root or maybe even cube root of your damage instead of whatever it is now)

This inventory makes me CRY TEARS OF JOY. Look at HOW FEW SUPERFLUOUS ITEMS I HAVE.
If I remembered to put my green armor on, it would be PERFECT.

On the other hand, holy shit I did not know that I'd ran out of shotgun shells until I read over the mortem.

Hahah I didn't kill any cacodemons, that's silly.

-- History ---------------------------------------------------

  On level 1 he entered Hell's Arena.
  He cowardly fled the Arena.
  On level 3 he stormed the Chained Court.

A bit less than half of your shotgun shells will come from here.
"But Thomas!" you say, "There's only 120 shells in there if you only clear one side!"

EXACTLY!

  On level 6 he found the Jackhammer!

10 minutes is a long time. Always check for uniques if given the opportunity AND YOU MIGHT GET ABSURDLY LUCKY.

  On level 11 he was foolish enough to enter the Mortuary!
  He managed to escape from the Mortuary!

Holy shit I think I took a wrong turn at albuquerque (although a supercharge and a red armor is handy for just before phobos arena)

  Then at last he found Phobos Arena!
  On level 12 he finally defeated the Cyberdemon.

When you have a Jackhammer and no MAD, killing the cyberdemon takes A LONG TIME. I think I blew through 8 small/large medpacks.
The fight took about 60 seconds. If only I'd found a thermie like last time...

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 350 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 308 of those were killed.
 4 of those were killed by something unknown.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 15 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 21 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 18 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Do you wish to be as fast as me? LEARN TO BE LUCKY. Nobody cares about my 20 failed attempts, everyone fawns over the one in which I just happened to find a jackhammer!

In other news, I am now a Br. General.

Requests For Features / Berserk/Invulnerability tweaks
« on: February 16, 2011, 01:08 »
Rarity
On higher difficulty levels, berserks and invulns are huge gamechangers. Instead of giving them out randomly, I suggest always spawning at least 1 on every level. This makes the hugely important full heal berserk on level 2 a guarantee instead of something you really really hope will spawn on UV or N!, and makes later levels a bit less luck-based.

Spawn rate is something like:
Levels 2-5: Always has exactly 1 zerk.
Levels 6-10: Always has 1 zerk, may also have 1 invuln.
Levels 11-15: Always has 1 zerk or 1 invuln, usually has both. Rarely has 2 zerks. Very rarely has 2 invulns.
Levels 17+: Always has 1 zerk or 1 invuln, usually has both. May have 2 or more of either.

Effects
Melee in DoomRL is a bit "get berserk, slaughter everything, lose berserk, die immediately"
Berserk packs should give a tad less damage resistance, but you keep the double melee damage and gain +1 armour until the next time you walk down stairs.
If you grab a berserk pack and walk down stairs before the berserking effect ends, you do not get the +1 armour and you lose the melee damage bonus. The berserk pack must have been picked up on the level you wish to get the long term effects on.
If you berserk through the trait rather than a pack, these long term effects do not activate.

There should be a blue "berserk" status effect at the bottom of the screen when you have the double damage and +1 armour so it's a bit more obvious that you're still getting some sort of bonus from the pack.

Speedrunning tips:
Set rundelay to something really low (0 is a bit disorienting)
Don't find a thermonuclear bomb? Rage quit!
Hoard consumables. You'll need more, because you're getting hit more in your stupid haste, and you'll need less ammo because you're killing less.
Use consumables. Note how I don't even have any envirosuits? I used them to cross tiny rivers of lava, saving myself 10 HP! At this speed, it's easy to keep all of my items in mind.
MASH THE KEYS
NOBODY CARES IF YOU HIT SPACE ONCE TOO MANY TIMES AND IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT IN THE MESSAGE HISTORY MASH MASH MASH
Most of the time you want to take stairs as you see them, I did fully clear about 4 levels though.

25
Despite the fact that I haven't found 2 'secret' uniques, the combat translocator or the super shotgun, my game shows 36/36 different uniques picked up.



My player.dat is a mish-mash of various versions ever since the later 0.9.9 release candidates, so this could possibly just be a problem for me.

Note: To any clever poster noticing that there are only 35 specials total in that screenshot, the Longinus Spear is offscreen, and I have gotten it twice.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Things learned about pistol games (This is pretty much my first serious one, considering I attempt Nightmare Shotgun and Rapidfire runs regularly)

1. Gun Kata: Free reloads are awesome, free shots are kind of cool.
2. Hellgate is about as bad as people say, but fighting viles without cover is something that no build can do. It is not a problem with the pistols. I didn't kill anything in hellgate, I just phased the heck out of there and dodgemastered past the bruisers.
3. Free shots are "kind of cool" because they are based entirely on dodgemaster, a trait which is both overpowered and underpowered. Of course, you're going to feel like a badass when you clear a room of mancubi without taking damage, but some enemies (even commandos/arachs in some cases) just don't give no fucks.
4. Dodgemaster seems to work on like 5/6 of arachnotron shots. Great, until they wittle you down to 20% HP and you suddenly need to stand still and heal.
5. Maybe it's time for a change in the final boss? He's never been particularly difficult for any build, and the problem is no lost souls. Seriously, spawn in lost souls every few seconds, and the fight becomes interesting and difficult. (Nerf cyberdemon damage/HP as necessary)
6. Hahahahaha the cyberdemon ran out of rockets I had to run away before he oneshotted me with his giant fists
7. Oh god level 22 was a pain elemental cave I was just about to start crying until I saw the stairs several steps away from my spawn
    (Also I guess I had 3 homing phases but like hell I remember to use consumables EVER)

Doing the mortuary with Badass is so awesome, SUPERCHARGES EVERYWHERE. DON'T HAVE ANY SPARE ARMOUR? WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED.
Just don't use BFGs unless you're playing Nightmare! or something, shotguns are FAR MORE FUN AND MANLY.

Items not pictured: Phaseshift Armour (Gave its life protecting my supple hide from the cyberdemon)
                            Firestorm Modpack (I cannot use you on shotguns what is this)
                            Blaster (You are not a shotgun, go away)
                            All of the Red Armour (A) I went through. -5% move speed instead of -20% yeah that's worth the lack of bulk/power
                            The dozens of double shotguns I found (First one when I was EXPlevel 4? Sure okay I'll take that)

Requests For Features / Brevity Mode
« on: October 06, 2010, 06:43 »
A toggle-able ini option for DoomRL veterans. Shortens most combat messages so only very large fights will require you to press space even once, improving the flow of the game.

The most important change would be "The missile hits the BEING_NAME" being shortened to "Hit!", or "Ouch!" if the thing being hit is you.

Also, there should be a button for repeating the level feelings, unless brevity mode shortens unimportant messages to the point where it doesn't take a lot of scrolling to find them in your Previous Messages screen.

*I forgot to get the newer beta, so I stumbled in to the "Crashes every time you check your previous messages" bug after clearing the Halls of Carnage.
**SoB is pretty much useless without rapidfire weapons...
***One of the closer wins I've had.
****The game was in a very arachnotronny mood today. I did not approve.

Requests For Features / Nightmare! kill% messages
« on: December 07, 2009, 19:29 »
Now that we have badges based on getting x% kills in Nightmare!, I think there should be a way to gauge just how much you've killed. For that, these messages can be implemented:

YELLOW: "Bah, you've kicked enough ass here."
Kill every enemy one or more times. They still might respawn.
Turns level name YELLOW

BLUE: "Somehow you finally feel safe, if only temporarily.
Kill every enemy and dispose of their corpses somehow. They wont respawn any more.
Turns level name BLUE
