Congratulations! Are there any roguelikes that you are not supernaturally good at? How much real-time did this run take?  I tried AliensRL years ago and bounced off it, I suppose I was waiting for it to come out of BETA.

Someone randomly brought up AliensRL the other day, and it made me feel like playing this again.  :)  I haven't played the game at all since 2019, and apparently, I haven't played this version since 2015.  (I guess I really like the technician features of the previous version;  :P  seriously, if someone picks up development of this game, I hope they fix the things that broke during the last update)

Anyway, I decided to play as the Scout, for no particular reason, with the intention to lean into his strengths with the sidearm...  though in the long run, I ended up relying on my primary weapons anyway, and never fully upgraded my sidearm skill.  I didn't really notice a difference with my sidearm between "unskilled" and "expert."  I still think those weapon skills either need a buff, or need to be made less expensive;  there was no way I was going to grind all the way up to "master" skill level, when I was already ready to win the game by that point.

Nice catch. Stuff like that is why I was really grateful for my alpha testers back when I was working on my roguelike - they would manage to discover things I hadn't even thought about planning for.

It does look like there's some extra room to the left there, and maybe the whole thing could be shifted trivially - but I would imagine having that much ammo is an edge case, and it might be better handled that way as laptop recommends; that is, sanitize the output so that it's always 3 characters or less.

Either one is equally viable as a solution IMO, so it probably comes down to which is simpler to implement.

Or just shift it over to the left one character when it hits four digits?

That closing parenthesis overflowed into the next line when the ammo hits 4 digits.  I'm proposing that any ammo count that exceeds 3 digits should have their significant figures reduced, so something like using "(1k+)" or something until the number of digits drop to less than 3 again.

Not my kind of noise, but nice find :)

Maybe Trar didn't employ advanced tactics of smacking stuff down with heavier weapons before finishing with fists to get the achievement, and so skipped out on the heavy-duty chainsaw?

Sure, but I'm not suggesting using the chainsaw;  that level contains the equivalent of five berserk packs, and with the increased powerup duration of ITYTD, those can last you all the way to the Cyberdemon.  I mean...  you don't have to use them, but it sure is a lot of fun.  :)

I think I did my Iron Fist run in the true spirit of the badge, with no alternates(and no chance of accidentally tanking the run, either!)

Nice work, and good luck with your future adventures... almost makes me want to go find my old laptop and dig up my DRL profile...

Kornel is not the only creator to be inspired by Berserk...

If you didn't appreciate my previous topic on Death Core music, this may not be for you, but I would be remiss not to post it here.

And you passed up Chained Court in a melee game?  :o  I try not to judge or anything, but that feels like it should be a crime.  :P

Man... you know that you've not played DRL for a long time when "Chained Court" turns up a blank in the map layout in the head.  T_T

I miss ASCII-mode...
