« on: July 14, 2011, 04:03 »
...Hell's Armory runs out of new schematics.

...the Cyberdemon thinks you're a secret bonus boss because he always dies in a random nuclear explosion and can't remember the last time he actually fought you.

...they've stopped rebuilding The Wall and just leave a gift-wrapped backpack next to the stairs.

...in the Lava Pits all the lava has moved onto the walls and ceiling because it's tired of seeing the message "Argh!!! DoomGuy!"

...in the City of Skulls, the Lost Souls live in constant fear because the weather forecast is always the same, torrential rockets with a chance of ammochain.

...the Angel of Death has to call you and ask if he can borrow YOUR scythe.

...the monsters have a nursery rhyme called The Three Little Vaults, and the most well known line is "He huffed and he puffed and he blew their vaults up."

...JC has run out of Barons of Hell to summon and now resorts to hiding in the corner.

Great one, General sir!

General Patton: Neither one - in fact is was a lack of confidence and stairs very close :).

Hi,

I found a minor, yet annoying bug when accessing the Traits screen from ingame ("T" command, not tested during level-up).
When a trait that the player doesn't currently have available for picking (in grey text) is selected, then the ESC key doesn't leave the screen back to the game, and stays in the screen.
The player then has to scroll to an available talent (any written in red, seems that whether the player already has the trait, doesn't matter) for ESC to work.

Requests For Features / Re: New level event ideas
« on: July 13, 2011, 09:21 »
Hope it was not posted earlier, but let me get a shot.

After the player kills the last monster, a slightly modified message appears:

You feel relatively safe ... for now.

After clearing a level. 30-90 seconds game-time pass, when Arch-Vile(s) comes up the stairs (i.e. is generated close to them) and starts reviving corpses.

The arrival time and perhaps the number of Viles (1 on ITYTD and HNTR, 1-2 HMP, 2-3 UV and N! ?) should be subject to the difficulty level (the higher level, the sooner Vile(s) arrive). Also, this should not happen too early before Viles can normally appear (3 floors before, perhaps?), and never on special levels.

The arriving Viles don't provide XP (to prevent farming).

This will notify the player to get the hell out of the level, leaving scattered powerups behind.

And perhaps, to give a warning, another message pops up when the Viles arrive, perhaps along the lines:

You feel a great evil coming!

All in all, I think that this will really add to the horror feeling, and I beleive it would not be difficult to code either.

EDIT: Of course, the player should _not_ be aware of this level event before he clears the level, in any way.

0.9.9.3 / [M|AoB|84%|YAVP] Another angel down!
« on: July 13, 2011, 04:33 »
Pretty much a very basic and standard AoB run.
I got lucky to get the Chained Court already on L4. Since then, fun times started.

Observations:
Tactical armor plus tactical boots are quite an effective combination - movement speed at 0.64s when cautious and without a single HR allowed me to outrun nearly everything. Too bad I found my first steel boots somewhere around L19 ...
Vampyre + A pain elemental = 200% health in no time flat. Thanks to GameHunter for this tip :).

Then, I just ran to Cybie before he even had a chance to fire a single rocket. On the third cut, berserk kicked in and then I just enjoyed the victory and my second Angel down.

Now, what next? A UV win? Another angel? I had a great shot at Ao100, dying on L94 - I may try to get this one done ...

AoMC seems to me as designed for rapid-fire builds. Too bad I'm way too unskilled with these builds ;).

* ZicherCZ  searches for the first former captain to come by ...

774
* ZicherCZ takes out his BFG and rises from the dead on L94
*Real* marksmen quickly find out that they need no to be marksmen ;)

@thelaptop: Thanks. For me, it's the very first Angel won. Well, given time, I may get a shot on the other ones as well (if time permits - Dungeon Crawl tourney is coming close, and I have quite a spot to defend :) ).

775
Now this is a strange combination.

Anyway: Well done!

Perhaps you feel safer in Death's embrace than in Hell?
Feature proposal: "You feel relatively safe now" after each and every death :).

And thanks :).

776
So happy to finally get my first Angel completed! :)

The only notable thing about this game is that I found pretty much no helpful equipment. Bulked red armour as best, no pistol exotics or uniques, a single speedloader. And in the end, I even ran out of ammo once ...
No wonder I ran down the stairs when I saw them in later levels. Until Hellgate, however, I maintained a 100% kill rate.
At times, I was lucky to have found large medpacks when I needed them, and a nuke. Without it, with the ammo left, I'd be down for the count for sure.

Hi AStranger,
thanks for the tips. When I get some time, I'll take a look on GameHunter's guides, from what I hear, they're really helpful.

However, my skills are nowhere near any Platinum, let alone Diamond. Even the single Gold I have occured in a very strange way - it's Scavenger, and I got it on my first ITYTD win. Some time after the win, I read that the Vaults are not supposed to generate on ITYTD - but they did for me, for some reason. That was in 0992, however.

Anyway, let's go in small steps. I need two Silvers and one Bronze for Warrant Officer, so let's start there :).

0.9.9.3 / [H|97%|YAVP] One Jackhammer to rule them all!
« on: July 01, 2011, 03:05 »
Well, this one was fun to play!
Started a normal, run-of-the-mill HMP game. Tried to build a heavily defensive build (see the traits in mortem).
Went to the Arena, cleared it, and hoped that with some luck I can finally get to the Hellgate on this difficulty.
Then, on L:4 I found the Jackhammer.
This thing works like a magic finger: Point on monster => no monster. Even Mancubi were falling in three blasts from the edge of line of sight. Once, a Hell Knight at close (not point blank) fell in a single burst!
Even more fun came when lava was present on a level. Push them in, hear them scream, hear them die.
Even the Big C could not withstand the sheer power of the weapon.

Some further perhaps interesting things about this game:
I don't think I ever found so many uniques and exotics in a single game. Ten of them, perhaps? Who would recall ...
My second win! :)
