I now have one UV victory as each character class.  Yay!  :D

Angel of Doom makes for a very different strategy than normal.  Instead of seeking cover, it encourages you to run around a lot, partly to try to keep one enemy in view at a time, and partly to maximize the damage bonus you get from having a high dodge rating.  The Scout was the natural choice, since he gets access to Hellrunner, Dodgemaster, and Running traits.  Toward the end of the game, I was getting so many damage bonuses, I was even able to take out Armored Ravagers with a single rocket each!  :)

That advanced shotgun you see was a fantastic find.  It had increased damage, autoloader, and cold damage, and I increased the damage further with a power mod and firing speed with an accuracy mod.  I kept it around specifically to deal with the Summoner at the end.  I could fire at him to slow him down with the cold effect, then take a step away to simultaneously reload and reinforce my dodge bonus.  (And therefore damage bonus)

I feel a bit silly that I kept all those grenades around "just in case," but didn't end up using them, except for a single Krak grenade at the beginning of the Summoner fight to strip away his armour.  Oh well...  :)

EDIT:  Oh yeah, one other thing I noticed...  AoD seems to block you from hitting enemies outside of your visual range.  I couldn't use my usual strategy of shooting turrets that couldn't see me.  (I was emptying clip after clip after clip into them while doing zero damage)  The only exception was the rocket launcher's splash damage, so that became a very important weapon in late game.

Tormuse, level 14 Scout, defeated
The Summoner against all odds.
He survived for 13741 turns.
The run time was 4h 51m 28s.
He scored 6547 points.
He was ULTRAVIOLENT!
He was an Angel of Doom!

Berserk! / [0.8.5|Endless|16|YASD] Very avoidable death
« on: January 12, 2020, 10:19 »
I still play this game once in a while, and this run was going really well, up until I died very suddenly, in what I'm sure was a very avoidable way.  I guess I neglected to check my hit points; I thought they were at 15, and I was berserk, so I should have been taking reduced damage, so I was not expecting to get killed by a Wraith, but I guess my hp were lower than I thought.  I had four Fairydust, so there was no reason not to heal myself; I was just careless.  :(

Oh well...  I decided it was good enough to post anyway.  :)

Bug Reports / Crash when trying out my graphics card
« on: December 30, 2019, 03:26 »
Since installing Jupiter Hell, I've been using the native graphics card for my computer, ("Intel(R) HD Graphics 630") and the "Vulkan" option that the game offers on startup has never worked.  (It would crash when I push "New Game")  Well, today, just for the heck of it, I decided to try taking the graphics card out of my old computer to see if it would work any better.  ("AMD Radeon HD 6450")  It still crashed when I tried Vulkan, but it did so on startup instead of new game.

It's kind of an old graphics card, so maybe it was never going to work, but I'll provide the crash reports here, in case there's some setting I forgot to adjust or something.  (It's possible that I need to bite the bullet and spend some money on a better graphics card)  :P

I tried running it three times, so I'll include all three crash reports.

Century Lounge / [M|Ao100|YAAM] Centurial Sunrise
« on: December 28, 2019, 05:58 »
I'm not even sure why I started this game.  I just got the idea of doing an Angel of 100 game with only my fists, and went for 100% kills.  The earlier levels were the most challenging, of course, but it wasn't as hard as you might think;  I actually had to do very little of weakening enemies with non-fist weapons, though there were a couple of tense parts where I ran out of med packs.

Once I reached Vampyre trait, though, it became pretty easy and I never went below six med packs for the rest of the game.  All that other stuff I was carrying were basically just trophies that I had for fun.  (Including the Sniper-modded knife...  I guess it has a scope on it)  :P

Not much else to say except that there was a very amusing part where I encountered a Baron of Hell wearing the Shielded Armor, and he took no less than 92 punches, because in addition to the 90% melee protection, which meant I was doing one point of damage per punch, he had two med packs.  :)  Also, the last level decided to pull all the stops out; an Agony Elemental, a Nightmare Arch-Vile, two Shamblers, and two Cyberdemons!  :o

Post Mortem / [0.8.6|U|AoV|Ma|10|YASD] Almost got 'em
« on: December 26, 2019, 01:27 »
This is the closest I've come to winning at Angel of Vampirism.  The Summoner was almost dead, but his summons swarmed me.  I probably should have used one of the Krak grenades on the Archreavers, but I was so close to victory, I decided to just keep drilling the Summoner with the assault rifle to maximize the benefit of Sustained Fire trait.  I managed to come into Precipice of Defeat with full health and full fury, ready for a shot of adrenaline, but the enemies never caused me enough pain to warrant using it; they either whittled away at me slowly, or my health ticked down, as I ran around the map, trying to find where the Summoner teleported to.  (Which he did twice!  Grrr!)

Anyway, this was mostly a stairdive, sometimes deviating when I felt like I could get away with it.  My strategy varied, sometimes charging headlong into battle to keep my health up, but if it reached close to 25, I played more slowly and cautiously.  It doesn't tick down below 25, so it's worth playing it safe in those circumstances.

I had some pretty good supplies at the end, including four Krak grenades, so I thought I had a good shot of winning this one.  Oh well...  at least that last Bronze badge was enough to unlock the other playing modes.  Maybe I can see what this "New York Reload" thing is about.  :)

EDIT:  Aww, man...  I just looked up the achievement listing for completing AoV on Hard mode and it is the least acquired achievement at 0.2%.  I missed out on a very impressive win.  :(

My second time winning!  :D  This time in Angel of Carnage, Ultra-Violence difficulty, with 100% kills!  :)

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez AoC makes for an interesting challenge; like the early game is a lot easier, because you don't even need to hit your enemies for them to die, but in order to make it sustainable, (and get YAAM) you really have to manage your ammo.  Like at one point, I managed to get up to 90 rockets, and had to leave some behind, but I was still down to 17 by the end.

Sometimes, this meant finding ways to take out (or at least damage) multiple enemies at a time, and sometimes, it meant gauging whether it's prudent to try to land a direct hit for maximal damage, or (if the enemy is going to take two rockets anyway, like Ravagers) shoot the wall next to them from outside their visual range, since it takes the same number of rockets, but I save some health.

I took full advantage of the Technician's ability to put lots of mods on my weapons, aiming to specialize my collection of rocket launchers that I would juggle between.  (Side note:  I'm 99% sure the description of Juggler trait is inaccurate, since it says swap time is "75% faster" and the default swap time for rocket launchers is 150%, but it seems to take close to zero time to swap them)  Basically, my first two rocket launchers were my heavy-hitters with increased damage that I would open any confrontation with, and the third one had all the bulk mods, so if the first two launchers didn't kill my target, they'd get hit by a barrage of fast reloading rockets.  :)

The late game was helped by an advanced rocket launcher I found that had the "haze" effect, that makes a cloud of smoke appear around the target, which prevents them from firing back right away, which was advantageous most of the time, but made dealing with CRI bots awkward, because they would take multiple hits, and being in a cloud of smoke seems to make them advance faster, and that's not an enemy that you want to deal with at point-blank range.  :|

The battle with the Summoner at the end was pretty tense; I really wasn't sure if I was going to make it.  :|  I used up all of my medkits in that battle, plus a phase device, and I was worried about running out of rockets too, because partway through the battle, he teleported away and I couldn't find him before he completely regenerated his hitpoints.  I'm glad I had Tough as Nails 2 and Incoming, because I correctly anticipated that he was going to close to point-blank and start clawing at me, and I would just have to tank the damage, because the Technician can't get Hellrunner, so there was no escape.  I finished with 42 hitpoints, so I'm pretty sure I was one hit away from death.  Whew!

Post Mortem / [0.8.5d|U|AoLT|Ma|14|YAVP] I finally won! :D
« on: December 16, 2019, 11:42 »
So I finally won a game of the latest version of Jupiter Hell!  :)

At first, I tried Technician, since he doesn't get Hellrunner, so I figured this would be his only chance to move fast, but when that didn't work, I tried Marine, since he has extra healing ability to mitigate the fact that I can't carry extra healing items around.

I'm a little bummed that I didn't get 100% kills, and I actually have no idea why I didn't, because I carefully scoured every single level.  :(  It's especially important to do so for AoLT, because every level, I have to make the sometimes tough decision of what to leave behind, so I'm wondering if it was a bug.  I checked my kill count on every level and I noticed that it said five unkilled enemies when I got to the CRI Armory, so it had to have happened somewhere around there.

Anyway, for this challenge, I leaned hard into AoLT's advantage of extra speed, and got extra, extra speed.  :)  It was the only way I was able to deal with the CRI bots on Io, keeping them out of visual range and firing my plasma rifle into the shadows.

I kept that advanced .44 pistol for a while, for the sole purpose of using against the Summoner.  It had boosted damage against "high tier" enemies, extra "finisher" damage, boosted critical chance, and boosted accuracy.  (And I had a pistol damage amp)  I figured it would be important to have a weapon that I could fire and reload quickly against him...  but then I found the Long Rifle in the CRI Armory, which turned out to be the perfect weapon for AoLT, since it's incredibly ammo efficient and my extra firing speed helped mitigate that weapon's drawback of slower firing speed.  It turned out to be quite useful against the Summoner, running ahead of him and firing back, though I still finished him off with the pistol.  :)

Another really nice weapon I found in the Armory was the Bio Launcher, unique rocket launcher that creates a cloud of poison on impact.  Potentially really useful for the smokescreen effect, so enemies can't even shoot me back...  but I ended up leaving it behind for the Micro Launcher.  I decided that for AoLT, I should take the weapon that holds more ammo.

Post Mortem / [0.8.5d|H|AoCa|Sc|11|YASD] I'll win some day. :P
« on: November 30, 2019, 20:05 »
I felt like playing around with Angel of Carnage for a bit.  Scout seemed like the obvious choice, since he doesn't lose much for having fewer weapons slots, but I still got Gun Hoarder, since switching between rocket launchers is faster than reloading, especially once I got Juggler.

AoCa makes the early game super easy, since you don't even need to hit your targets.  I just shot at walls next to enemies and that was enough to kill them.  :P  Mid to late game gets more challenging, especially since I was trying to go for 100% kills and running out of ammo became a major concern when facing bots who take three or four rockets and only give one in return, or Archreavers, who take two and give you nothing.  I tried to be as efficient with my ammo as possible, hitting multiple enemies at a time when I could, but still got reduced to a single stack of rockets on the second level of Io.  (Actually, the act of saving ammo may have been a major contributor to my death, since in some cases, I ate some damage, trying to get into a better position)  The biggest drain on my reserves was the Containment Area, where I used about 20 rockets and got zero in return.  I've been compulsively going in all the special elevators all along, but I may skip that one next time.

This is my third Bronze badge, so I've unlocked UV difficulty.  Yay!  :D

Post Mortem / [0.8.5d|H|Ma|13|YASD] Not over yet
« on: November 28, 2019, 13:52 »
My main causes of death in this game are me getting caught off-guard by unexpected things.  This is my first time getting to the Precipice of Defeat and I very nearly won.  I'll get it next time.

Once I got to "Beyond," I started playing as though I was on the last level, not realizing that there are a few levels beyond Beyond.  :P  (Used a Military Stimpack when I probably should have saved it)  I also fought the Reavers coming out of the Gateway longer than I should have; it took me some time to clue in that there were infinite of them.  And at the end, I got the Summoner down to about 20% health and was about to deliver the killing blow with my rocket launcher when he teleported away and started surrounding himself with summons.  (What an asshole!)  :P  He healed himself up to full before I could even get back to him, and then there were toxic Reavers all around him.  I'll have to reconsider my strategy for next time.

My favourite thing to find in this run was a really nice advanced 9mm pistol that  had enhanced damage, critical chance, and accuracy, and "Cleaner 4," which does extra damage to low-tier enemies.  I carried that with me right to the end, even though there wasn't a whole lot of 9mm ammo around.

Oh, and I think I finally found where the red keycards are used, except that the Marine can't seem to get Packrat, so I had thrown the keycards away.  I was still able to get into the vaults by shooting them open, though.  My advanced pistol was surprisingly effective at that.  :)

As the subject line says, it's my first time getting to Io, which may not seem like such a huge achievement to some, but I've been playing exclusively on Hard mode, so I'm struggling a bit.  :P

The biggest contributor to my death was inventory management when I got to Io.  When I realized that nobody was dropping any ammo except cells, I decided I'd have to make the tough decision about which weapon(s) to leave behind, and I really liked the weapons I'd collected, so there was much shuffling things around and testing how they compared, and a Reaver surprised me while I was doing this and I had the Long Rifle out, which is fantastic for long range, but not so much for close quarters combat, and I lost the last of my medkits as a result.  Oh well...  I'll be better prepared for next time.  :)  (Still haven't figured out what red keycards do)

A few notes to share for the Devteam:

I've been meaning to say about the opening message when you start a game...  as a native English speaker, it looks weird when it switches between past and present tense between sentences.  I think the message would read better as "something's wrong" instead of "something went wrong."  Similarly, when you get to Io, it would read better as "You didn't imagine you'd visit it..." instead of "You didn't imagine you'll visit it..."

Also, minor thing...  at one point, I found an "ADV rifle critical amp," and the description says, "Advanced rifle organ targeting computer."  There should probably be a hyphen in "organ-targeting."

Post Mortem / [0.8.4b|H|Ma|5|YASD] Is this where I post mortems?
« on: November 17, 2019, 17:14 »
So I picked this game up again the other day, after not having played it in a while.  Tons of nice new features since I last played!  :o  After a bunch of games, (playing at Hard mode, 'cause that's how I roll)  :)  I finally cleared Callisto Anomaly for the first time, though I used up all my med kits doing it, and it made me susceptible to a couple of Security Bots on the next level.  :P  (It didn't help that I never found any armour in the whole game)  :|  This game's got some real challenge to it now; I wonder what Ultraviolence difficulty will be like.  :)

Also, I have no idea if I notated the subject line correctly; I figured I should include the version number, difficulty level, class, and highest character level reached.  There's no kill count percentage in the mortem and the "dungeon" levels are organized weirdly, so I didn't know what to include in the line.  Speaking of the mortem, it's kind of neat that the game automatically copies it into clipboard.  How convenient.  :)

DiabloRL / [0.5.0|Warrior|YAVP] Shield is OP
« on: November 14, 2019, 21:36 »
Felt like playing this the other day, for no particular reason.  Not a whole lot to report about this run, except that I just realized that having a shield makes the whole thing trivial!  The shield was blocking something like 95% of all hits, and I hardly took any damage for the whole game.  If I recall correctly from the original Diablo, there's supposed to be a percentage chance of the shield blocking damage, and after each successful block, there's a delay before it can block again.  In this game, the chance of blocking is way too high, and there doesn't seem to be any delay; in fact, in some cases, I was surrounded and blocking multiple hits simultaneously!

AliensRL / [0.8.2|Ma|YAVP] Flamethrower is pretty devastating
« on: November 12, 2019, 15:59 »
For no particular reason, I've felt like playing this game lately.  I played a few games with each of the characters, but my first win in this session was with the Marine.

I've been hard on the Marine in the past, criticizing that character class for the fact that it has penalties to all the most useful upgrades and bonuses to all the least useful.  I still feel that the weapon upgrades don't do enough to justify the fact that they're the most expensive, but the fact that the Marine starts with more weapons and ammo did end up serving a valuable purpose in this game, because it made me bold enough to enter the Main tower right at the start and get some useful equipment that less tough character classes would not have been able to, so maybe I've misjudged the Marine; he just lends himself to a different playing style, that's all.  :)

Towards the end, I found a flamethrower, a weapon I've never really used before, and it made short work of the Queen and all her Praetorian followers.  The Praetorians, which are tough enough to survive a Krak grenade impact, died from one shot from the flamethrower!  (Well, the initial impact would bring them down to "heavily wounded," and then standing in the resulting fireball would finish them off)  Actually, I just kind of threw flames all over the place, covering the top floor with napalm; it was pretty brutal.  Nothing could stand up to me, and nothing could get close to me.  The flamethrower doesn't hold much ammo, (and the ammo is pretty rare) but it makes up for that by being pretty devastating to pretty much everything.

I started playing this game months ago, and I did a little too well at it.  :P  As I recall, around the time I got 16 or 17 dexterity, I was able to dodge frequently enough that I started coming out of levels with more equipment than I went in with, and once Willpower was high enough, I was able to gain energy while running!  It was great at first, but got more and more ridiculous, and then just tedious, the further I went along, especially once it started crashing consistently.  (Every time a Demon would spawn)

Like early on in the run, it would crash every once in a while, and when this happened, it would save the game and allow me to start the next level without having to fight the rest of the monsters on the previous level, so crashing was actually a huge boon to my run!  It says in the mortem that I survived 24 nights, but that's just the number that were actually completed.  The rest of them were game crashes, and judging by the levels of my skills, I actually played 92 nights!  :o  I was tempted to see how far I could take it, and see if the game hangs when you reach Ironman level 100, (since that's the in-game stated limit) but it was just getting more and more tedious as time went on, and today, I started it up on a whim, and...  just decided to end it, so I let myself get surrounded my Mandagores and just rested myself to death.  :P

I randomly felt like playing DRL today and decided to try for a Platinum badge, but I'm a bit of an overachiever, so I tried for two Platinum badges at once.  :P  I've tried it a bunch of times before, but this was the first time I was successful, thanks in large part to how generous this game was with health and ammo.  (5 shellboxes and I was just swimming in med packs!  There was an extended section where I was walking around with over ten of them!)  :o

Combining Angel of Darkness with Angel of Red Alert meant that I had to balance sight with speed.  I considered getting a Cateye build, which might have been a better choice, since it would help in locating the exit faster, but decided a Gunrunner build would be more fun.  :)  (After getting a couple levels of Intuition, so I wouldn't be totally stumbling around in the dark)  :P  I mostly tried to clear out every level for the experience, up until I got Gunrunner partway through Deimos, after which I just charged the exit on every level.

I normally don't bother with Double Shotguns, but this is a build where it would have been most welcome, but strangely, I never found one in the entire game!  :|  In this kind of game, I normally carry a Chaingun and Plasma Rifle around as backups in case I run out of shells, but I was getting so many shells that I actually ended up throwing the CG and PR away.

I had intended to build a Micro Launcher for the accuracy boost, so I could maximize the use of Gunrunner, but I found a Missile Launcher in Deimos Lab, which is even better.  :)  By the time I got to Tower of Babel, I had a running speed of 0.38 seconds per move, so I was pelting the Cyberdemon with almost three rockets per second!  :D  And by the time I reached Dis, I was up to 0.28 seconds per move, so I was hitting the Mastermind with almost four rockets per second!  :D  (After drilling her with devastating Railgun fire at the same rate)

And now, it's time to update the badge display in my sig.  :)
