 155 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 142 of those were killed.
 1 of those @was killed by something unknown.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 7 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 4 souls destroyed the Cyberdemon...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 3 killed the bastard and survived.

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

Mwahaha! Finally got a UV win! Plus got a Gatekeeper Diamond as the cherry on top... Went with a super conservative build - Bad and 3 levels of Iro and Int2 make AoMC reasonably easy. I'm finally beginning to feel like I can actually play this game :-)

Discussion / Ubuntu Package
« on: December 13, 2011, 07:49 »
Hi Guys,

I've slapped together an Ubuntu package for doomrl. It will (hopefully) install site wide so each user gets their own saves/config settings (by the use of duct tape and hacks aka the Linux Way(tm)). For some unfathomable reason I threw in a horribly designed gui interface for changing config settings as well (complete with a gimmicky option to use random names off a user defined list).

I don't know how many of you run Ubuntu - if you want this for Fedora or other distros I can probably whip something up. Actually a generic linux installer wouldn't be too hard to do...

You can get it here:
doomrl_0994-2.deb

You should be able to just double click on the file to install. I haven't tested it extensively, let me know if there are issues. All source code is included (if you know how to unzip debian packages - otherwise take a look in /usr/local/share/doomrl after install). If it worked you should find DoomRL in your Games menu :-)

I tested this on 10.04 and 11.10 (32bit but 64bit should work fine).
Also note: the package doesn't include the doomrl executable - it'll download it during the install process, that way the stats on the chaosforge downloads page will still be correct.

Anyway, hope this might be useful to someone out there...

0.9.9.4 / [E|29%|YAVP] - My first win!
« on: October 17, 2011, 00:21 »
Hi All,

I'm new to these forums and thought I'd introduce myself with a little war story :-) This is my first win at DoomRL. I've been playing for a while and I've read the wiki and guides. I started playing on 0.9.9.2 on ITYTD but reading the guides I realised that it encourages a wrong style of play. So I switched to HNTR and got better :-) I stopped playing a while when work got in the way but I noticed the 0.9.9.4 release and decided I'd try again. This time, however, I was playing for keeps - I decided HNTR wasn't good enough. It was going to be HMP or bust.

So I started small - my first target was to win at the Arena. I did. I eventually got Private FC and starting to finally 'get' the tactics. Then my game arrived. I beat the wall (without a scratch!). I got to the Armory and found the Railgun (which is awesome!). I beat the lair and got my Cyberdemon insurance policy there. I started getting cocky. I entered the Mortuary (for the Reaper Silver/Bronze - I wanted to hit Sergeant in one game) and wasted a couple of medkits and a homing phase but got out. I made it to the Phobos Arena.

I held out a while but I realised that I didn't have enough medkits and my build (Scout Cateye) wasn't tough enough to take the damage. No problem - when I saw the writing on the wall I hauled out my nuclear plasma rifle and got ready to savour my first win - even if it was only partial. That was when I got this message:

"You need a full magazine to overcharge the nuclear plasma rifle!"

I stared at the screen in something close to despair. I tried running and dodging to no avail. The Cyberdemon, a sick leer on its grotesque face blew me to shreds. It had taken 4 hours to get there. I was crushed.

In a fit of despair I started a new game, my first ITYTD on 0.9.9.4. I didn't really care what would happen - I just hit the ground running and started playing through as fast as I could. I didn't expect much to happen.

But this happened:

 DoomRL (v.0.9.9.4) roguelike post-mortem character dump
--------------------------------------------------------------

 Joseph Hewitt, level 5 Imp Corporal Scout,
 defeated the Cyberdemon on level 25 of the Phobos base.
 He survived 21840 turns and scored 23585 points.
 He played for 15 minutes and 26 seconds.
 He was too young to die!

 He killed 96 out of 322 hellspawn. (29%)
 Who gave him the ticket to hell, anyway?

I can't believe how insanely lucky I got. Scout Int2 was the key because I always knew where the stairs were and I could avoid most situations. I wasn't even bothering with weapons - it was shotguns all the way except for the hellgate were I needed the napalm launcher to get past the brothers. I hit two invulnerability globes going into the Phobos Arena - I got the Cyberdemon's Head! That's a medal I wasn't expecting for a looong time...
So I guess the moral of the story is... I have no idea. Learning on HMP makes ITYTD a walk in the park? I dunno. Anyway, thought I'd say hi and share.
