I guess this is a bug. I think they actually are theoretically destroyable, but their hp gets reset each time they move.

In my game, neither rockets nor plasma shotgun were able to destroy them.  If there was a way to destroy them, short of letting them get revived and killing them somewhere else, to destroy the corpse there, I didn't discover it.

I sort of forgot about the assemblies...

Okay, I'm glad I looked those up.  They're so hyper-specific, that even through trial and error, I would never have found them, not the least because mod packs simply don't drop frequently enough to allow that kind of experimentation.  I look forward to seeing if I can try some of them out.  :)

I don't think I intended this, but not sure if I want to fix it... Maybe I should. (Melee probably doesn't need the help I guess?)

I kind of like the effect;  the concept of doing stealth melee kills appeals to me.  It's up to you whether or not that deserves a change, but yeah, it's probably worth keeping in mind that currently, the game is hugely unbalanced in favour of melee.

If you'd like to give ranged builds a significant, but not unbalancing, buff, I would suggest allowing revived corpses in Acheron to drop ammo.  That level is a relative breeze for melee that doesn't have to care about ammo, but for a ranged build, going up against unlimited enemies with limited ammo is not fun.  If I could at least restock along the way, I'd have a fighting chance.  I mean it would still be a grisly war of attrition, where the only actual progress is made if you can manage to injure an Arch-Vile, but it would at least be feasible.

I made another attempt.  I made a concerted effort to push through Acheron this time, pressing forward faster than was wise, and burning through three med packs in the process, but the enemies were still reviving faster than I could kill them.  I had a plasmatic shotgun to help with corpse disposal, but it seems that the corpses that spawn in the river are undestroyable, so there's no way to stop the Arch-Viles from surrounding themselves with raised enemies, and I couldn't get close enough to them to even injure them, let alone kill them.

By the way, one thing I forgot to mention, but in the previous game, you may notice that I got 5 Shambler kills.  That's because (apparently) the switch that summons the Shambler can be activated as many times as you want.  I'm not sure if that's a particularly wise thing to do, but I thought I'd mention it in case it's a bug.  (Come to think of it, I didn't check if they each give you experience;  hmm...)

Without looking at your two spoiler comments, I did notice that my vision radius was decreasing and increasing periodically on that level, so I assume that has something to do with their presence.  I honestly can't remember whether my vision was in a reduced state at the time I got munched, so I probably should have paid closer attention to that, especially since they don't make any sound, so there wasn't any other cue that they were present.

So I've been trying this mod out again lately, seeing if I can get a proper UV ranged build going, and this is one of my more successful games, playing with a masterless technician build.

Naturally, this meant I couldn't do Blood Temple, but I still made a quick visit there for Explorer purposes, and left without triggering the ambush.

I got overwhelmed at Acheron.  I haven't quite gotten a handle on how to take care of the Arch-Viles quickly enough before they ressurrect everything;  I'll have to reconsider my approach next time.  In any case, I burned through all my med packs on that level and I was forced to homing phase out.  I left 46 enemies behind on that level;  up 'til that point, I had a perfect 100% kill ratio.  Oh well...

In the end, I was done in by a pair of Nightmare Spectres that I didn't even see coming.  Somehow, both of them went from being invisible to biting me in the space of the one second I spent reloading my tactical shotgun.  How the heck fast are those guys?!?  I know their whole deal is that you can't see them until they're close, but I really was totally unaware they were there until I was dead.  They must've gotten a triple move on me, and/or they have some kind of variability in how far away they can be seen from or something.  I could have saved my life with my last large med pack, but I really didn't think I was in imminent danger of dying.

Thanks!  :D

I have always found the scrapgun pretty crap, so is there something I am missing that makes it great?

I don't know about "great," but it does relatively high damage for 9mm ammo, and has the benefit that Scavenger 1 gets you as much ammo as you want for it in late game.  There are certainly better weapons out there, but it served me well until I got my melee game off the ground.  :)

The current version of Inferno already works with version 0.9.9.7 of DRL.  (The current version of DRL)  I got it from this link that Tehtmi posted on page 8 of this thread.  I've been playing it on version 0.9.9.7 for years, (from time to time) and it's always worked fine.

EDIT:  Here are Tehtmi's instructions from 2017 for getting it working.

is there a link for this if so please post it

I haven't tried it, but someone posted this link not too long ago.  It looks like they just uploaded their entire copy of DRL along with the WolfRL mod for it.  Give it a try.

After my Gunrunner game from the other day, I got the idea to do another Gunrunner build, this time focusing on melee, for a "Bladerunner" build.  :D

This was considerably easier than the game where I was relying on ranged weapons, since this time, I didn't have to improvise any ammo-saving strategies.  Also, one of the nice things about using melee with this build is that the act of attacking into a square (assuming you kill the target) counts as a move, so sometimes, I was able to chain together several melee attacks in a row, each one taking 0.25 seconds of time.  :)  (I pretty much knew this was going to be a fun run once I hit Gunrunner 2, and proceeded to use my katana to cut down three exalted ravagers in less than a second)  :D

Of course, for the early game, I had to rely on ranged weapons more, and I was helped along immensely by the Scrapgun unique, and to a lesser degree by an advanced hunter rifle with barbed 6.  By late game, I had a really nice advanced plasma shotgun with critical 50, which combined with SoG 3, gave me 100% critical chance with each shot, and also sustain, which took away ammo worries, but by then, I already had a really nice katana, and SoG combined with Executioner 1 gave me 100% crit chance with that, so I had pretty much switched exclusively to melee anyway.

Other things that helped the run included the duramesh armour, that I modded for bleeding protection, and...


Toward the end, I pumped all my levels into hellrunner, dodgemaster, and dash, to help me get out of (and sometimes into) danger faster, and to max out my dodge chance, so my enemies could barely touch me.  There were still a few close calls where I nearly died due to trying to bite off more than I could chew, but I had enough contingencies in place, such as stealthing, smoke grenades, phase kits, etc, that I was able to keep going, and I managed to take out Harbinger by simply charging up to him and whacking him repeatedly with Soulstealer, and he fell in a few seconds.  (Soulstealer was so charged up that the killing blow did no less than 766 damage!)  :D

Post Mortem / [1.3a|U|Sc|YAAM] Run 'n gun
« on: April 09, 2022, 11:07 »
For no particular reason, I decided to do a UV game with a Gunrunner build, and got conqueror.  Yay!  :D  (100% kills too!)  :)  I had serious doubts about my ability to win toward the end, since I was almost completely out of ammo, even with scavenger 3, but I just barely managed to pull it off.

I was very speedy!  Between HR 3, the Exosuit unique, and the metabolic boost from my amp, I was moving at 0.5 seconds per move, (0.3 seconds while dashing) which went well with my chaingun with barbed 3, and actually turned out to be crucial for saving ammo at the end, since I could hit enemies with a few rounds, and then move fast enough to keep away from them while they bled to death.  In some cases, I even just danced back and forth in front of them, while they had a lot of difficulty hitting me, due to my dodge chance.  (Although I seriously wonder how to hit chances work in this, since they were sometimes still able to hit me, despite, in some cases, supposedly having -290% accuracy from bleeding stacks)

Another thing that was a big help was that super shotgun with rush 10, (damage bonus after move) which synergized nicely with the build, which is based on constantly moving.  I was pretty pleased to be able to deliver the coup de grace to Harbinger with my last shot from that gun.  :)

I was disappointed to find that the sustain mod didn't seem to work with the rail rifle.  (Or didn't work consistently?)  I think there were some shots that returned ammo as expected, but mostly not, and I'm not sure why that is.  If the mod had worked properly, a lot of my ammo worries would have been alleviated, particularly in Dante Inferno, which was a huge ammo drain, with very little return.

At one point, in the interest of saving ammo, I picked up a katana from the ground to whack a couple of reavers, and I noticed that Gunrunner's reduced attack time applied to melee weapons too, so now, I really want to do a melee-focused Gunrunner build game.  (Bladerunner, anyone?)  :D

Post Mortem / [1.2d|N!|Te|YASD] Explored a little too far
« on: March 11, 2022, 22:53 »
So I wanted to get the CRI and Jovisec Diamond badges for winning on Nightmare difficulty masterless as an explorer, and I decided to try playing as a technician, since I have the fewest victories with that class.  Ultimately, I failed, I'd say mostly due to trying to complete the Dante Inferno special level, even though (as I found out from Kornel after the fact) it wasn't actually necessary to do so.  (Oops!)

The run was carried by finding "Vengeance," a unique hunter rifle with a significant damage boost, plus incremental critical chance boosts from consecutive shots without reloading, which was later helped by armour with "loading feed," so I didn't have to manually reload it, so it permanently kept the critical bonus maxed out, consistently doing quadruple+ damage with each shot.  (I was slightly disappointed to discover that there's a cap on how high the critical bonus can go;  I half expected it to keep climbing into the thousands of percent, until I could one-shot anything;  oh well...)  :P

I recorded the whole run, which you can watch at the following links.

Part 1 - Callisto

Part 2 - Europa

Part 3 - Io

Part 4 - Dante

The recordings mostly speak for themselves, so I can't think what else to comment on.  The only other really notable decision I made along the way was getting rid of the Ravager's Heart relic at the end of Io.  I have no idea whether or not that was the right decision, but considering that I ran out of health items at the end, maybe it was a mistake?  Who knows?

Post Mortem / [U|YAAM/YAFW] Focused Shottyhead
« on: January 22, 2022, 18:18 »
I recently got inspired to see if I could make use of a focused double shotgun with a Shottyhead build.  It's something I got the idea for forever ago, but somehow, never actually put it into practice.  I played on ultraviolence, because I wasn't in the mood for anything too strenuous.

Fortunately, for this run, I got all the mods I needed fairly early on, but unfortunately, the first double shotgun spawned in Deimos Lab.  (Normally, I'd find probably three of them by that time;  oh well...)  I basically didn't use the combat shotgun after that;  I'm not even sure why I carried it with me to the end, quite frankly.  :P

I nearly died to the pair of shamblers, (brought me down to one med pack) since they don't seem to be very susceptible to shotguns, and the lack of eagle eye meant my other weapons were less effective, but after that, it was pretty smooth sailing, as long as I could keep my shotgun shell supply up, which I managed by occasionally luring arch-viles over to sergeant groups, so I could farm them for shells.

The Shottyhead build is ridiculously ammo-hungry, due to...
  a)  the simple fact that you just fire so damn fast...
  b)  it blocks SoB trait, so you can't increase your damage much, and...
  c)  the fact that firing so fast means you push all enemies to the edge of your weapon's range in the space of a second, so you're doing even less damage.

The focused double shotgun helps mitigate this, though in practice I don't think it made a huge difference.  I still had to rely on my other weapons, which I juggled between, including Azrael's Scythe in the late game, for which I took a detour to berserker.  I used up all my shells in the Mortuary, and I never really built the supply up after that, but I made sure to save some for the end, so I could use them to deliver the coup de grace to JC.  :)

So a while ago, (eight and a half years ago?  Whoa!)   :o  I managed to get a win that showed 0% kills, by killing nothing but the Cyberdemon and the Mastermind.  It was a fun little challenge to see how few kills I could get, but I always thought it could be interesting to try it in Angel of 100, so I could truly get 0% kills.  :)

Well...  I didn't quite do it this time, but I got it as low as 3% kills, so that's pretty good, I think.  :)  Bonus:  I made sure to unwield my starting weapon at the beginning, and never wielded a weapon, so I got Sunrise Iron Fist as well.  :D

All 60 of those enemies that got killed died in crossfire, since I never fired a single shot...  unless you count the time an arachnotron stepped into a doorway unexpectedly, and I accidentally walked into it and punched it.  (Don't worry;  it didn't die, and I apologized afterward)  :P

Post Mortem / [U|AoB+AoLT|90%|YAFW] A bit of light malice
« on: December 26, 2021, 16:52 »
For no particular reason, I decided to play DoomRL the other day, to see if I could do a melee only game with a Malicious Blades build.  I also combined it with AoLT for the speed boost, reasoning that a melee build won't need much inventory space for weapons/ammo.

Once I got MB, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the game, but getting there was quite a chore.  While MB is considered a melee trait, it really is best suited to a hybrid build, due to the lack of berserker trait.  Still, somehow, I made it work by focusing on the enemies I could kill relatively easily without taking too much damage, and stretching berserk packs and invulnerability spheres as much as I could, and simply avoiding a lot of enemies, and avoiding Hell's Arena altogether.

I turned the red armour from Phobos Anomaly into nanofibre armour, which I used up until Deimos Lab, where I got an onyx pack as a reward, which I ended up putting on a suit of blue armour for the plasma protection.  Those two levels of Whizkid I got ended up being solely for modding the armour;  I would have liked to dual-wield two power-modded chainswords, but it didn't end up being convenient to do so, and the Longinus Spear turned out to be a good enough choice anyway.

I was considering skipping Spider's Lair, since MB's protections don't include plasma damage, but a lucky nuke and invulnerability made me change my mind.  :)  I still had to break down two walls between the invulnerability and the SL entrance, which I did by throwing a couple of combat knives that were lying around at napalm barrels.

Limbo felt like a big mistake that nearly got me killed, since enemies were reviving faster than I could deal with, and I just made a run for the exit, though I was able to pick up the nuclear BFG on the way out.

I probably would've skipped Lava Pits if it generated, but I lucked into getting Mount Erebus, and there were two berserk packs next to the stairs for it, so I was able to just run across the lava, only losing about 27% health in the process, enabling me to get a full win.  (Though there was an invulnerability next to the final stairs, so I didn't end up using the lava element anyway)  :P

Yay!  :D
