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

 Before him 60 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 37 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 4 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 16 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 13 killed the bastard and survived.

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

The early game was quite simple. I lured formers and killed them on door tiles. I never left corpses behind me - after clearing 3-4 rooms the danger level really drops.

I was very lucky to find a Revenant's Launcher on level 3, which I used to destroy imp corpses (they don't pick up items and they die from onevolley from a chaingun - I didn't have the patience to lure them with a pistol). Later on I used it to destroy Hell Knight and Baron corpses (it's hard to time them so that they die on a door tile).

My biggest worry in the early game was the hard version of the Chained Court. My plan was to immediately run to the right, kill the barons and destroy their corpses - it worked perfectly.

The Wall was easy - I created a tunnel near the middle and spammed rockets and shells until everything was dead. A few times a Baron would get right in my face, but shotty + max damage = ridiculous knockback.

In the Halls of Carnage I sprinted to the stairs and waited until the lava killed everything (wow it moves fast).

I killed everything and destroyed all corpses until level 16. Just as I was going to enter the UC to get Longinus Diamond, I realized I didn't have any melee weapons :( At this point I abandoned the YAAM attempt and concentrated on finishing the game in one piece.

The Vaults were really easy - I fired a combat shotty around a corner to lure Viles and finished them off with the plasma rifle. After all of the Viles were dead I just walked right into the middle vault and I killed the remaining Revenants.

I entered the Mortuary with two invulnerability globes running which allowed me to quickly kill 4-5 viles. I also had a blood skull which I used immediately, and a metric fuckton of rockets from the vaults. After my invulnerability ran out, I was at the right side of the level and I started destroying corpses with rockets. After the right side was cleared I spammed plasma into the middle and mopped up with the BFG. I didn't actually use the BFG that much - I fired maybe 3-4 shots total.

After the Mortuary I spawned near the down stairs, I used a homing phase device on level 24 and I killed the Cyberdemon with the plasma rifle (3xHR,DM,MAc = easy).

Fun fact #1: Arch-Vile corpses don't respawn, or respawn veeery slowly. (Can someone confirm this? Maybe it was my speed, but I don't recall a single Arch-Vile rising from the dead.)

Fun fact #2: After completing the Mortuary, reviving doesn't stop like in the Hell's Arena.

From now on, aiming for YAAM is my go-to tactic on Nightmare. It fits perfectly with my style of play. We'll see how it works on other challenges.

I'm running DoomRL 0.9.9.3 on GNU/Linux (with sound). As far as I know, this bug does not happen on Windnows.

When DoomRL tries to play many sounds at once (e.g. when a lot of enemies are injured by a shotgun blast) the sound is either completely muted or cuts off abruptly. This makes radar shooting very hard on crowded levels and is generally very annoying (especially in the City of Skulls).

To see this in action download sound_test.lua into your DoomRL directory and run:
Code: [Select]
./doomrl -sandbox sound_test.luaYou will be placed into an empty level with 50 barons just out of your vision range. Fire a few shots to the right in quick succession and most (if not all) pain sounds will be muted.

There are a few problems:
  • DoomRL doesn't allocate enough channels. SDL_mixer only allocates 8 by default, which is not enough when you have 20-30 enemies making sounds.
  • DoomRL doesn't check the return value of Mix_PlayChannel() (when SDL_mixer runs out of channels, it returns -1). It then passes this value to Mix_Volume() and Mix_SetPanning(). Calling Mix_Volume(-1, ...) sets the volume of ALL channels.

This is what happens on the test level:
  • 50 barons are injured by a shotgun blast.
  • DoomRL tries to play 50 pain sounds at once and runs out of channels (only the first 8 are played).
  • One baron far to the right makes another sound (a howl or something).
  • DoomRL tries to play this sound, but it's too far to the right (volume=0) and there are no free channels (channel=-1), so it calls Mix_Volume(-1, 0) which mutes all sounds.

The fix is easy:
  • Check the return value of Mix_PlayChannel() and don't call Mix_Volume()/Mix_SetPanning() if it's -1.
  • After Mix_OpenAudio() call Mix_AllocateChannels() with a reasonable amount of channels (e.g. 100, maybe make it an option in the configuration file).
  • Don't call Mix_PlayChannel() if you're going to set the volume to 0 afterwards (this will save some channels).

Until this bug is fixed, you can use a small program to fix these issues. There is no guarantee that it will work, so backup your data before running it and don't whine if it formats your hard drive ;)

Download sound_fix.so into your DoomRL folder and run DoomRL like this:
Code: [Select]
LD_PRELOAD=./sound_fix.so ./doomrlor like this:
Code: [Select]
export LD_PRELOAD=./sound_fix.so
./doomrl

If you want to compile sound_fix.so from source, download sound_fix.tar.gz, unpack it and run `make' in the created directory - this will produce the sound_fix.so file (make sure you have g++, SDL and SDL_mixer development packages installed).

I hope this helps.

I promise this is my last AoHu mortem (at least in this version :>).

I skipped levels 22 and 24 (thanks GH) so no YAAM, and I didn't kill Shambler (I'll get him in the next version ;).as a matter of fact I did kill him heh, I played AoHu so many times that every game just blurs together ;)

Special levels:
  • UC - purely luck based. Kill demons and hope for a berserk. I didn't get it in 3 attemps out of 18 that reached UC. If you kill everything before UC, you'll be level 8.
  • Vaults - super easy with a tactical shotgun and around 100-150 shells. Just corner-shoot everything.
  • Mortuary - hard if you're not berserked, medium-hard if you are. In this run I had two hatred skulls and all 5 Arch-Viles spawned clustered on the right. With Irox3, TaNx3 and a red armor (P) I was taking <10% damage from Viles while berserked.
  • Lava Pits - easy. I used the second hatred skull before exiting the Mortuary and I killed most things with the LS. The boss was killed with the missile launcher and I think I didn't get hit once.
  • Cyberdemon - almost impossible without a nuke ;). If my calculations are correct, he can kill you in one turn even if you have [7/7] armor, 200% hp and maxxed Iro/TaN. He killed me once (100%-0) so this run I played it safe (thanks GH)

This is dedication (or lack of skill :P):

 Before him 293 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 215 of those were killed.
 1 of those was killed by something unknown.
 6 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 18 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 53 souls claim to have killed him...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 50 killed the bastard and survived.

Thomas's medal is cursed...

Level 23 had an armed nuke, so I picked up the pace... and I blew myself up with the missile launcher (someone should really fix this bug where the projectile path suddenly switches to a wall).

Highlights:
  • AoD killed by throwing a bulk modded knife (took around 1.5h). I was afraid I was going to miss a lot, but I missed maybe 5 times total (I guess EE applies to thrown weapons)
  • Mortuary cleared without taking damage: two skulls, ~600 cells, two BFGs, 2xInt, obvious strategy :P
  • Armory, Wall, Hellgate, Skulls & Vaults cleared without taking damage
  • Spiders cleared with minimal damage (I sidestepped one volley and it took me down to 40%).
I'm surprised I didn't get any Untouchable badges, but I guess I got dropped to 10%-20% a little too much in the early game (this started as a joke, not a serious attempt :)).

Wow. I had to heal maybe once or twice after Hellgate. Intx2 + MCe + backpack full of ammo = IMBA. I used shotguns to kill things outside of my vision - this saved me a lot of rockets and cells. Shells are surprisingly powerful with SoBx2 and enemies trapped behind lava :P

I also got Gatekeeper Diamond, but I had it already so it didn't show up (this must be one of the easiest diamonds to get).

Quiz: you have HRx3, DM, 100% health (14 hp), your weapon is empty and you see an Arch-Vile & a Baron. Do you:
a) hide behind a wall (which is 1 tile away) and radar shoot them with the BFG or
b) stand still like a moron and SWAP YOUR WEAPONS.......

Eh.... And up until that point it was a perfect run: I had 10 large medkits when entering the UC, 700 cells and was invulnerable when entering the Mortuary, and the Lava Elemental spawned 1 tile away allowing me to poke him with the LS without retaliation.

Btw. I didn't kill Shambler - would I still be eligible for Thomas's medal if I won?

AoD was dispatched using tactics from this thread (my hands still hurt from running around UC).
I got the Gambler's Shield by abusing a healing lever (it's impossible to get it normally - i got 4-7 levers TOTAL in a few runs dedicated to getting it).
GK Platinum was unexpected, because I got hit right in the face by a Cacodemon - it didn't hurt me though (bug?). I killed most of the demons while invulnerable and corner-shot Bs with the missule launcher.
And I didn't clear the Mortuary - I phased out, dodged some Viles and got the BFG.

So yeah, first N! win. Big thanks to Game Hunter & Thomas for guides/videos.
