FPC Valkyrie / Place to download the valkyrielibrary?
« on: September 19, 2015, 01:00 »
The site is down, and the only mirror I could find only had versions older than those talked about on this forum. Is there somewhere I could get ahold of this? I've been learning Pascal and wanted to see if I could do something with this.

I remember they were what I hated most about 0.9.8.9, and the only thing that for me kept the version from being perfect (or nearly so) since they made the game so random. So, I was wondering if they were still around and if so if they had been changed in any way.

Forum / Reccomended Roguelike engine/code?
« on: January 31, 2008, 13:28 »
I'd like to start working on learning to program Roguelikes, but I have no idea what to use. I was planning on using Valkyrie, but from the looks of the project page there isn't enough released yet to make a Roguelike (correct me if I'm wrong) so I was thinking about looking for something else. Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?

Requests For Features / Closing doors on items.
« on: January 23, 2008, 18:38 »
I hate it when I'm fighting monsters in a doorway, then try to close the door and run only to be told that there's "no doors I can close" because some monster dropped ammo in the doorway, so I have to stand and fight . Would it be okay to allow shutting doors on top of items? I mean, as far as I know someone leaving 5 bullet in a doorway doesn't normally make the door nonoperational. >_>

I've never really bothered with challenge games before. I tried AoB and AoMr a few times back in 0.9.8.5, but that's about it. The new challenges look like fun though, so I thought I'd see if I can't unlock some of them.

This was my second attempt at AoI. My first one failed on Level 15, because I stupidly tried taking on the City of Skulls. This round, I didn't do any challenges that were harder than normal levels, and it payed off by giving me exactly zero challenge throughout the game. I also used the chain weapon line instead of the shotgun line, since the chain weapon series is much better no matter how much I love the style of the SGs.

I never dipped below 40% health in the entire game, excepting for a level 15, in which I ran into a seemingly invincible Baron of Hell- Normally, they die in 2 or 3 bursts of a chaingun with SoaB3 (As opposed to 5 or 6 shots at close range from a Double Shotgun with Shottyman. >_>) But this one kept soaking up damage like nothing. I emptied an entire chaingun- 10 bursts- into the fucker, and he just kept on firing plasma balls at me as if I was throwing rice. After I reloaded the chaingun and desperately fired another 3 or 4 bursts, he finally keeled over with myself having gone from 100% health to 22%. Examining his dropped objects revealed the cause of the phenomenon: "Gothic Armor [7/7] (139%)". Bitch used up 61% of my armor! >:-[

After that, I grabbed a large medpack that was 5 spaces away from where we were fighting, and put the gothic armor in my backpack before continuing on my way. After that I had absolutely no problems, and was able to patch up the armor by taking it out whenever I saw an armor shard. By level 19, I had it back on 200% and put it on. That thing is just unfair- I got in a fight with an Arch-Vile, and his fire attack was doing no more than ~5% damage at a time- and I had 60HP. The Cyberdemon was really easy as always, I took it out in 4 shots of the BFG9000.

The sheer lack of difficulty surprise me in this challenge, as I expected having noon-demand medpacks would make this really difficult and intense. Definitely not the case however. IMO, even without the Gothic Armor, AoI on Medium in this version is significantly easier than non-challange Easy difficulty in 0.9.8.5 (Which is the only other version I'm willing to play, since 0.9.8.7 was unbearably glitchy and .8 was ridiculously unbalanced.) Kornel might want to look into that.

At any rate, I'm probably try for AoB or AoMr before doing AoLt for the level-up. (Angel of Darkness? What Angel of Darkness?)

Odd, it seems that a disproportionate number of crashes seem to happen on the Chained Court.

Anyway, enjoy I guess.

Pre-0.9.9 / [M|91%|YAVP] First win of the new version!
« on: January 17, 2008, 17:53 »
lol, late to the party.

I've unfortunately been really busy lately, and so haven't really had a chance to play video games nearly as much as I'd like. This game was actually played over the course of four days, with about half an hour a day.

On the other hand, I really, really like what I've seen so far in this version. I haven't actually played much DoomRL at all since 0.9.8.5, because .7 kept crashing and erasing my data which caused me to quit playing after the third reset, and I got so annoyed by chain weapons in  .8B that I quit playing after I won one game with them.

In .9, though, all of Kornel's ideas that he's implemented starting with .7 seem to have really come full circle, and massive amount of cool new stuff since .5 is really sweet. The game also is balanced enough now that I can really enjoy it and enjoy all the new stuff so, I can see myself dumping a lot of time into this version when I get a chance to do so.

Massive props to Kornel for this, you've done a great job.

I thought I remembered Kornel saying back when everyone was complaining about getting blocked by lava that he'd fixed it so that wouldn't happen in the next version. :-/ I don't see anything about it in version.dat though, so I may just be misremembering. (If so, move this to the requests forum I guess.)

Either way, this sucked because I had just gotten a message saying "Something valuable is in this level!" which I assume means a unique item.

Discussion / Son of a Bitch idea.
« on: January 03, 2008, 05:20 »
Why not make it so that SoaB adds one extra side to every die rolled per level? This would simultaneously make it less useful on chain weapons, while making it useful at all for rocket launchers, shotguns, etc! (Pistols would be equally effected) Thus, SoaB becomes less game-breaking, but simultaneously is useful for all weapon paths meaning that the whole chain weapon dilemma is neatly sidestepped. I also think this would be a good idea for the flavor of the game. A true Son of a Bitch wouldn't find himself confined to a certain weapon type; he'd be kicking ass and taking names no matter what weapon path he was using. It would also make SoaB truly the inverse of TaN- a generally useful skill that can be used to fill in the gaps of any skill set.

Bug Reports / Strange Crash.
« on: December 31, 2007, 23:28 »
I just had a crash occur shortly after loading a saved game. (NOT savescummed) The odd thing about it was that even though it gave the message saying to copy down the error information, it didn't show any lines of error information until I finally X'd out, at which point the lines flashed for a fraction of a second. Unfortunately, I was barely too slow hitting the print screen button to capture those lines, and because I tried my SS of the crash itself was overwritten with a SS of my desktop. >_> (I had hit F9 and F10 as well, but they appear not to work during a crashed game.)

So no solid information, but it might be worth trying to reproduce.

For those wondering why it took me 14 games to get a victory, my first 13 games were all attempts a shotgun-based, because Kornel had said that he'd made shotguns actually useful in this version. Instead, they seem to be even more useless then before, not just in comparison to the SoaB'd stream weapons but even on their own, thanks to the shortened range and new tactics system. (One of the very few saving graces of shotguns in earlier versions was that they had 100% accuracy even in coward mode)

Meanwhile, the boost from SoaB is even more game-breakingly powerful then I predicted here. Trigger Happy is just the icing on the cake. Since picking up a chaingun and getting my first level of SoaB, I was not even remotely in danger of dying the entire game. For shame.

Bug Reports / Tactics in Help Files
« on: December 30, 2007, 07:35 »
Not really a bug per se, but in both the in game help and the help file packaged with DoomRL still refer to tactics as "Aggressive, Cautious, and Cowardly" and give tips accordingly. Considering that these were the first places I went to try and find out what the heck the new tactics system does, you may want to think about changing that.

Off Topic / MMOR by the ADoM team?
« on: December 21, 2007, 15:51 »
I seem to remember somewhere that the ADoM team was working on a (massively?) multiplayer online roguelike in the vein of TomeNET or MAngband, but developed from the ground up for online multiplayer and with a subscription fee. I can't seem to find anything on the matter now via google though, so does anyone know if this is actually in development or if I just made it up?

Berserk! / Hooray for a new release!
« on: December 21, 2007, 15:48 »
I've long insisted that Berserk! is the CF game that has the most potential (DoomRL is obviously great, but there's not much more that can be done with it.) and it's a lot of fun so this makes me really happy.
