Pretty much what it says in the title.  I recently picked up DoomRL again and started a new save file and it's been a blast.  However, after a particularly long and grindy hunt for a diamond badge left me successful but burnt out, I grabbed Jupiter Hell to spice things up in the meantime.  I say this to clarify that I am familiar with roguelike fundamentals, but am wondering about the more specific quirks that JH has (enemies, builds, special levels, etc.) and am hoping someone can explain them in a way that relates them to similar features in DRL (if that makes sense).

The difficulty just ramped up more quickly than either of us were prepared for, I guess

Well, *I* was prepared for it!!! Obviously the only reason I managed to clock less deaths / further progress was a HELL of a lot more experience than you on inferno!
But if I'm honest I'm used to the way difficulty ramps up. In fact, shortly before this stream I was chatting in discord about how inferno gets un-winnable for most skills in mid-late europa!!!
There are certainly character builds that can play around it, much like apocalypse, but my gut tells me that inferno will never be a place for all builds/classes, unless it's changed. :)

Great run last night, I had tons of fun! Part of the reason I wanted to stick to the same class/build when I originally suggested the 'co-op' concept was so that a death could easily be 'ressed' by the other player, preventing exactly what happened when you died here (don't want to continue with a different character). Still, it was great exploring levels together, and I think it worked very well in its own way!

Congratulations on a great romp through inferno!

So, much like last week, I streamed myself playing JH along with Sylph, who was playing at the same time with the same random number seed...  this time at the newly introduced Inferno difficulty level!  :)  (My first time attempting it!)  :D

I played with a Survivor build, while Sylph played with an Entrenchment build.  Neither of us survived, though Sylph got a little further than me.  The difficulty just ramped up more quickly than either of us were prepared for, I guess.  The nice part is that this means you get more experience earlier, (if you can survive)  :P  but it's gonna take some practice and effort to make any headway in this difficulty, I think.

Anyway, here's the video from my perspective...

...and here's Sylph's perspective.

Tormuse, level 9 Marine,
killed on Europa Concourse by a security bot.

He survived for 8498 turns.
The run time was 3h 6m 2s.
World seed was fixed at 3939.
He scored 4239 points.
He challenged the INFERNO!

I've wanted to check out this new "Inferno" difficulty level I keep hearing about, but I understand the game wants me to jump through a bunch of hoops to unlock it, including going through a specific path through the new secret "Purgatory" section.  Even knowing how to get there, it took many attempts to succeed.  I can't imagine how someone could figure it out from scratch.

In a previous attempt, I came very close to doing it at UV difficulty with a Vampyre build, which failed, because an unfortunately timed hit by a cryoreaver slowed me down enough to allow a warlock in the final battle to get a double move on me and target my square and hit me before I could react.  (I had to review the recording/mortem to figure out what happened there)

Anyway, at some point, I stopped trying to do anything fancy, and just played a medium difficulty game, because I'm sick of playing Purgatory and just wanted to get it over with.  The bright white tileset used in Purgatory is not easy on the eyes.  Like...  it's seriously blinding, and I decided that as much fun as this game is, it's not worth going blind in real life.  I get the feeling the Devteam was going for the aesthetic used with invulnerability spheres from the original Doom of the 90's, which is fine when it's only a minute long...  but not when it's several hours.  Like...  let's not mince words here.  The colours used in Purgatory in Jupiter Hell are a bad choice and need to be changed.  (In my opinion)

I didn't record this game, but I did a recording of my very first attempt at Purgatory here, accompanied by Sylph in voice chat, so you can see what I mean.  (I don't think I saved the mortem for that one)  A Survivor build was a very poor choice for UV difficulty, since each level you pass in Purgatory takes off 5 max hp, and Survivor works better when your max hp is higher...  but it turns out that at medium difficulty, you only lose 2 max hp per level, so Survivor suddenly became viable again, particularly when I took a couple levels of Ironman and boosted my max hp from the health terminal in Callisto Mines.

The final battle with Harbinger was still pretty harrowing, though, since the Purgatory route causes warlocks to teleport in, and they have the ability to heal Harbinger into overhealth!  (Yikes!)  I had a previous attempt at this challenge fail at Harbinger, because I didn't realize at first that this was what was happening, plus one of the warlocks was hiding somewhere behind Harbinger, so I couldn't find it to stop healing him, and also, when I got Harbinger into his final phase, more warlocks teleported in, one of which was on the wrong side of the cover I was using to protect me from Harbinger.  (Grr!)

Anyway, on this attempt, I was better prepared, and anticipated all of these difficulties, but I still would have had a lot more difficulty without the Warlock's Eye relic, which did a lot to mitigate the warlock's effects.  I don't know if the relic did much to hurt Harbinger himself, but it at least helped clear the smaller minions, which let me focus my firepower on Harbinger and bring him down faster.

I'm glad I have that all over with.  Hopefully, my next stream of this game will be Inferno difficulty!  :D

Glad you posted it!
I would love to do another soon! I really liked how we were able to explore a ton of non-optimal play, partly from deciding on branches as a team, rather than what was best for our character, and partly from knowing that there was a 'res' option should things get on top of us.

I'd love to try it on a higher difficulty soon. x

So this was a little different.  I was chatting with Sylph the other day, and we got the idea to each do a stream of Jupiter Hell at the same time with the same difficulty, class, and random seed, sort of as a test to see how our gameplay styles compare.  My streaming software bugged out partway through and split the resulting recording into three videos, but it looks like I didn't lose any footage, and you can find them here:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

And Sylph's perspective is here.

The game took about 6 hours overall, partly because we both play slowly, and partly because we were chatting via voice chat the whole time, and may have distracted each other.  :)

The highlight of the run was discovering the secret pet kerberos, Rexio.  (Okay, someone told me directly what to do while I was playing, but no complaints)  :P  Rexio starts out weak, but can be leveled up over time, eventually being strong enough to face down any enemy, including the Harbinger itself!  I still kept a close eye on him while he fought enemies, in case I needed to step in and help him, but he never seemed to actually be in any danger, since any time his hp got halfway down, he'd flip into "enraged" mode and rip any enemies apart while also regenerating.  I honestly could probably have just sat back and let him complete every level for me, and not have to lift a finger myself.  (He could probably stand to be nerfed a little)

Aside from that, not much else to say, since the above recordings speak for themselves.  I played with an Entrenchment build while Sylph played with a Sharpshooter build, up until facing the Ancient at the end of Io, where Sylph died, due to underestimating the boss, and I sent my save file over to her, so she could continue playing.

Incidentally, we streamed the games on Twitch.  My channel is here, while Sylph's channel is here.

I wondered if I could get to the experience level 25 on medium without doing Archangel of 666 again. So I tried dual angel challenge with Angel of Darkness, with its fast levelling and Angel of 100. I really don't like Angel of Darkness.
Mistakes were made all through the playthrough, I don't have a saintly patience, so number of enemies were left to be revived until I got a rocket launcher and enough rockets to spare.

Found a nuclear BFG and immediately slapped B and P mods on it, then I found three firestorm packs, but no new BFGs, so no Biggest Fucking BFG :(
Hoped for nano pack to make my laser rifle to be nanonmanufacture, but no luck, did find a sniper pack eventually to make plasmatic shrapnel, which really cut down on rocket use. Also, cerberus armor is really great at reducing the damage inflicted on you.

For no particular reason, I felt like playing an Angel of Berserk game with a Ghost build.  :)

Leaning into the Scout's stealthing ability was a very shaky strategy in the early game, and for a time, I was living med kit to med kit, and very uncertain if I'd be able to win.  The Shadow Blade that I found mid-Europa was a big help, letting me do triple damage with my stealth strikes, (and quadruple damage once I got Executioner) and getting the Demonblood effect from the Dark Cathedral helped considerably, and that was when I knew I had the game in the bag.

That was also around the time I found the armour with the "silent" perk, which helped me get more out of my stealthing.  I was using the melee amp I found in Frozen Temple (that gave a damage and guard boost) up until the end of Dante Inferno, where I couldn't resist switching it up for a utility amp that also had "silent," so my two silent perks, combined with Skilled 2, meant that for the last two levels, I was getting four stealth strikes per stealth, (if there were enough enemies present) and since Ghost 3 made my stealth cost 12, and I was getting 3 energy back per kill thanks to Energy Leech 3, I was able to break even for each of my stealths.  :)

I got the Medusa's Fang toward the end, which instantly kills damaged biological enemies at the cost of permanently reducing your health, and I almost got rid of it, figuring I didn't want my health reduced, until I realized that it only triggers the health reduction if you deal non-fatal damage...  and my quad damage from the Shadow Blade was pretty good at one-shotting everything, and once Soulstealer was leveled up with smaller enemies, it was able to one-shot pretty much everything too, so I don't think I ever actually activated the Medusa's Fang ability at all.

In the end, Harbinger didn't even see me coming.  I ran up to him while stealthed, whacked him for four stealth strikes, then stealthed again, and whacked him for four more stealth strikes.  He spent his last moments firing off his mortars blindly, and was dead without ever seeing his attacker.  :)

A fun little run where I had Survivor, health Demonblood, and Ravager's Heart, so I was healing up to 25% health from Survivor, up to 50% from Demonblood, and up to 75% from Ravager's Heart.  :)  The neat thing is the health regen stacked, so I was getting healed at triple rate below 25%, and double rate below 50%.  (This meant I basically never got the Survivor-based critical bonuses;  oh well...)

The game started as sort of a test of the viability of the Warlock's Horn relic, which I found in Callisto Anomaly, to see if the game is still playable with the 20% experience reduction, and I was still able to get up to level 17 by the end, so I wasn't hampered too badly.  I didn't get to actually use the Warlock's Horn for its true purpose, to block the Archwarlock's gaze, since I had to switch it out for the Ravager's Heart, (which I didn't really want to, but I felt compelled to, to see how the health regen worked)  :)  but for a while, the Warlock's Horn's bleeding protection was helpful for occasions I wanted to use melee.

For early/midgame, I mostly used a nice AV1 7.62 rifle with 40% critical on it, and didn't really make the switch over to melee until Io when I was able to get a decent katana.  I never found any indestructible armour, so my armour got shredded pretty consistently, but I had some pretty nice powered armour for a while, which helped me zip around, cutting enemies more quickly, but it finally broke against Harbinger himself.  Oh well...

One other funny thing, since Demonblood and Ravager's Heart both reduce healing effects down to 25%, and they stack, small medkits would only heal me for 2hp, and small healing orbs and combat packs didn't heal me at all.  :)
