Bug Reports / two bugs: random crash, and can't save profile
« on: January 19, 2008, 21:46 »
The crash happened just as I went down some stairs:
ERangeError: Range check error
TLEVEL__VISIBLE, line 434 of dflevel.pas
TBEING__SENDMISSILE, line 1292 of dfbeing.pas
TBEING__AISCAN, line 706 of dfbeing.pas
line 777 of dfbeing.pas
line 789 of dfbeing.pas
line 275 of doombase.pas
line 22 of doomrl.pas

The second bug happens every time I end a game:
Critical Error: <TDoomLua> beings[105] are not found!

I should note that I copied my profile from, because I didn't want to re-do my progress so far.

Discussion / What's your favorite traits?
« on: October 31, 2005, 11:00 »
Just as the topic says: what traits do you use, and why?  Have you tried anything insane for kicks, and did it work?

For myself, I use Tough as Nails 3, Eagle Eye 1 and Cateye 2 (usually picking up Cateye after 2 TaNs).  TaN is great for early survivability (when everyone does low damage), despite its lesser usefulness in later levels.  Cateye is indispensible for picking off everything without taking a scratch (until the next release, anyway).  Eagle Eye (plus berserk) means that I hit with the chaingun about 90% of the time, and maybe a little closer to 60-80% with the plasma gun.  I've usually found that rocket launchers and plasma guns do enough on their own to make SoaB somewhat less useful, but I spend most of my endgame exploiting Cateye to its max rather than wading wild-eyed into combat.

Every now and then, I try a Pistoleer run with maxed Finesse and Son of a Gun, but I usually die hideously despite firing the pistol like a chaingun.  Has anyone had better luck?
