These new actions on rare tech stations: "Add ADV mod slot" and "Add ADV/EXO mod slots" don't actually cost anything at all, as long as there are enough charges to make them accessible you can execute them, but charges won't be actually spent.
(Version 1.7, from GOG)

Bug Reports / Gog download for Windows is still 1.6
« on: August 06, 2023, 10:38 »
As of the time of this writing, the latest version of Jupiter Hell published on for Windows target remains 1.6, although GNU/Linux and Mac operating system are on the recent version 1.7. Gogdb site shows in build section that a recent build for Windows was made, but in download section it also lists version 1.6 for Windows and 1.7 for other platforms.

General Discussion / Re: Gasmask drops from events
« on: March 12, 2023, 05:39 »
I was wrong, it's random. Seed 29965 Ultra-Violence, standard game, 1.6 version, Callisto Mines L2 has "emergency brake", when script is executed gas is released and a stimpack is dropped, not a gasmask.

Bug Reports / 1.6 Crash on Endless level 120
« on: March 11, 2023, 06:36 »
A crash happened on Jupiter Hell version 1.6, when exiting level 119 of Endless to get to level 120.
Seed 19044 (Ultra-Violence).
Bug report attached.
The game does preserve the save of last successfully entered level (119), so at least I was able to clear that level two more times: first attempt confirmed that bug would reoccur on trying to enter level 120, the second time I chose to abandon the game to get my Platinum badge.

General Discussion / Gasmask drops from events
« on: February 17, 2023, 06:12 »
Doesn't seem to be documented on wiki when events that spawn gas drop gasmask rather than other items. I don't know if this is fixed or randomized, but so far got gasmask drops from executing scripts which had these keywords written in letter informing about them:
1. "emergency brake". Also talks about keeping some guy (with randomly generated name) away from terminal until the author figures how to blacklist them.
2. "purge procedure"
If, on the other hand, tells to bring gasmask on your own or that it will be a quick run for the elevator, then it won't give gasmask (will give stimpack instead).

This is but a theory though, maybe it's random but at least first I encountered enough to notice it always gave me gasmask, and the second is proof that it can be completely different keyword and still gas spawned + gasmask drop.

Seed 84756 (Purity UV) - Callisto L1 two unreachable drones
Seed 71694 (AoC UV) - Callisto L2 more than three enemies unreachable, accessible level area is smaller than usual (looks like entire area has no door connection to the part of level player can reach from the start)

If more than just seed number is needed to reproduce, here are mortems:

I was looking to beat the Angel of Carnage for the first time (had many unsuccessful attempts, mostly problems with ammo attrition or running away when sighted by medusa), and decided to go with YOLO strategy: don't take Reloader as a Marine at all, instead invest early in Army Surplus and Whizkid L1 (for Autoloader), go through Callisto Rift to get poison immunity, and then build like a Survivor with Angry Motherfucker. Going this way (without Reloader), you have a low success rate early on due to exalted soldiers, but spare a lot of points for other things should you succeed.

Run began quite well, with Rift netting me a JS duramesh scout armor and JS marine helmet and allowing me to fully mod my rocket launcher (including setting up autocalibration at that guaranteed tech station), an AMP with "Carrier, Furious" - basically set for most of the game. (the armor was only ditched for necrotic at Dante L2, right before Inferno, and an AMP was swapped by the one that popped on Dante Inferno).

Interesting things happened on Europa, though. Because the terminal message at L2 tipped me about "micro launcher" on L6, and branch to Conamara spawned on L2, I had to pick that route. It's not exactly bad, but you miss cold immunity, and I often struggle with Cryomancer, so Padded perk goes in the sole duramesh's armor slot. I was praying to get Fire Essence and my prayers were answered, in fact the ammo pool allowed me to dare for one more immunity (I wanted to keep my helmet throughout the game, so Acid was good enough). Then, on the special level "Containment Area", two uber-items dropped: Calamity unique and Medusa's fang relic.

And those two defined the run from there on.

As you might guess, the challenge-defining aspect was broken: ammo management was not required that much, all tough enemies except bots die in one hit (and Survivor helps survives duel with bots), Calamity is also safe to use in close quarters (no splash).

I admit - I didn't use Angry Motherfucker most effectively, and instead abused medusa's fang effect to deal with tough enemies and level up Calamity to MAX as soon as possible (to deal with those robots). So with Ironman L3 and two health increases, I ended the run with 83 max hp. On Dante Inferno I think I wasn't hit even once (although memory can be faulty).

Possible BUG I encountered: Ancient died in one hit from Calamity, and I was missing only 1/3 of my health. I think medusa's fang erroneously failed to recognise him as a boss, treating him as a regular biological it instakills.
