Discussion / Re: Tips for AoB?
« on: March 12, 2008, 14:50 »
Finally beat AoB, thanks for the tips. Probably could not have done it without the Necroarmor.

Base chance to hit is only 50%!! That's terrible. Sometimes with bad luck it might take 4 attacks or more to even hit a monster never mind kill it.

One level of Eagle Eye improves base to-hit chance to 74%. That's like 3 attacks in 4 will hit instead of only 2 attacks in 4. Two levels of Eagle Eye improves the chance to 91%.

When Running, base accuracy drops to 26%!!! If running, consider switching to Tired mode when you are ready to fight.

After you have achieved a high enough rank, it will unlock the Angel of 100 challenge - survive 100 normal levels. There you will have a chance to explore traits and weapon mods in much more depth than usual.

Discussion / Re: weapon mod question...
« on: March 12, 2008, 14:11 »
Actually I'd like to see a lot more variety of melee weapons, some stuff between Combat Knife and Chainsaw at least.

It would be interesting if different melee weapons worked better on different creatures, so you would have a reason to maybe switch weapons.

Also would be cool to allow two melee weapons used simultaneously, by a trait like Dualgunner. Or perhaps just simplify Dualgunner to allow any two single-handed weapons.

Of course the obvious new challenge would be Angel of Carving or whatever, in which you start with an Advanced Combat Knife and only knives are allowed. :)

Well I hope to see mods allowed on melee weapons next version. Obviously not all apply but some would be very useful. Including Accuracy.

Further to my last post... some mods are not permitted for example Magazine with Rocket Launcher. However some mods that make no sense are permitted for example Accuracy with Shotgun.

A Basic ranged weapon is allowed one mod, plus one more for each level of WhizKid.

An Advanced weapon is allowed four mods, plus four more for each level of WhizKid. A maximum of level 3 applies to each individual mod. For example D3A3 etc.

Unique, Special, and Melee weapons are not allowed any mods. Note the BFG is a Basic ranged weapon and mods are permitted. Personally I like magazine for the first mod on this one.

WhizKid also permits multiple Armor and Boot mods to be applied at the same time, max level 1 for each mod.

Another Angel of 100, this time with the next difficulty level. Again at least 8 uniques, but no good weapons until near the end when I found the Railgun for the first time ever. It's an ok weapon but nothing compares to Advanced Double Shotgun with D3, Shottyman etc. That gun positively MOWS DOWN EVERYTHING!!

It seems that Character Level 20 is just about impossible to reach. My level seemed to go up regularly until 19, then the % change very very slowly.

Since the game didn't crash I exterminated 100% of those pesky enemies. :)

Requests For Features / Re: Turning it up...
« on: March 03, 2008, 05:48 »
I like some of these ideas. For me the game has started to lose its appeal because the remaining items to unlock are too difficult. If I could get a little boost from uniques in the armory, or starting traits, maybe it would not feel as though I had hit a wall.

Pre-0.9.9 / [M|AoPa|9%|YAVP]
« on: February 24, 2008, 21:42 »
I got inspired by Khashishi's post and gave Angel of Pacifism a couple more tries. It's not as difficult as I first thought, but a bit of luck is definitely required. On one game a Baron trapped me in a hallway and refused to shoot! He just walked all the way to the end and then killed me with melee attacks. :(

My approach to victory was a bit different, I maxed Hellrunner first then went for max Intuition before any other defensive traits. It was very helpful to see the enemy locations, I was able to clear an entire cave level of Arachnotrons by maneuvering them into the lava out of view. :)

Bug Reports / credit for lava/acid kills
« on: February 18, 2008, 17:09 »
I've noticed that when I lead monsters through lava/acid, they can die but don't seem to credit me with any experience. Seems reasonable to get credit for these and all other kills including monsters shooting each other.

Also regarding the "Kills Creatures" lever... the topic is closed but I have played this game quite a lot, usually with Intuition, and this lever *always* has reported "Nothing Happens". If it ever works I don't understand the rules of it.

I should have got 100% kills but the game crashed 3 times. A save file was produced so I could continue.

The early part of the game was hardest. As my character got stronger with each level up, the enemies did not. At least 8 artifacts appeared in this game, the Hellstaff was lost to a Baron explosion before I could pick it up, and the Dragonslayer was too heavy?

Gothic Armor is nice, had to take it off a few times to prevent destruction until the next Armor Depot/Shard/Purple Powerup.

Nuclear BFG did not regenerate ammo as documented. I only used it once.

Butcher's Cleaver was handy when I ran out of ammo once or twice.
