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

General Discussion / [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."

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.  :)

So I felt like playing DRL recently and thought I'd try for one of the Platinum badges I haven't earned yet, and ended up deciding to do it in a silly way, by combining Masochism with Pacifism.  :)  It made the early game very luck-based, since there's no way to heal except for finding the stairs and getting the level-up supercharge.  Finding the Chained Court was a huge help; the berserk packs don't heal you in this challenge, but the extra protection and speed boost is life-saving.  (and interestingly, they still restore you to "cautious" status, even though they don't heal)

The *real* lucky break came on level 13 where I started with a Nano pack in view and I got to assemble Power Armor!  :D  It made the rest of the game a breeze, relatively speaking.  :)  So yeah, a little anti-climactic, but there you go, one more Platinum I've never earned before.  :)

So a while back, (just over three years ago!)  :o  somebody suggested taking advantage of a bug that allows you to hit yourself with your own Dragonslayer and combining it with Vampyre trait to heal yourself by killing yourself.  Well, today I pulled off a "successful" test of what happens; I got the message, "you hit you" and died from it, but my final hp displayed as zero, so I guess I didn't get healed from it.  (How sad!)  :(

I recorded a one minute video of myself doing it, but I don't think it's worth bothering to share.  The bug requires knocking myself into the path of the Whirlwind, so I had to use the Phaseshift set to increase knockback, since Badass trait and the Dragonslayer itself reduce it.  After all the testing to see how much damage I took over multiple attempts and positioning the barrels properly, and getting my hp down to the right level, it was pretty anti-climactic.  Oh well...

Other than that, it was a pretty ordinary Vampyre stairdive.  The Necroarmor was a huge help for the early game and the Phaseshift set for the late game.  I was tearing around ridiculously fast, while juggling between the Ripper and Butcher's Cleaver, all my moves taking 0.16 seconds and my attacks taking either 0.18 or zero seconds.  Basically, everything was dead before they could react.  :)

I had hoped for an Onyx mod for the Phaseshift suit, but I never found a single one.  (Found 4 Nano mods, though!)  :o

Berserk! / [0.8.5|Endless|13|YASD] Second best?
« on: September 26, 2018, 03:25 »
This is my first time getting to night 13!  :D  I thought for sure it would be number one, but this game still holds my top score.  Comparing them, it looks like in the previous game, a lot more Wraiths spawned, and as a result, almost twice as many Skeletons were raised.  So there were a lot more kills and a lot more time spent on the other game, hence the higher score, even though I didn't get as far.

Oh well...  at least I seem to have a strategy that seems to work pretty well in this game.  :)

Well, it turned out to not be so spectacular, but I did what I set out to do.  :)  I survived just long enough to get the last medal for clearing Hell's Arena in AoMs at N! difficulty and died on the next level.  :P  It was good enough to get me Heroic Diamond!  :D

I recorded a video of myself playing through Hell's Arena here.

What I did was I stocked up on shells on level one, (taking advantage of N! spawning of Sergeants) and got myself Dodgemaster, so I could dodge the Cacodemon's shots and also outwalk the demons.  (I also entered HA while berserk which may have helped a little)  I still suck at avoiding damage, but I was still (just barely) able to do it.  :)  In the end, I died because I got cornered by multiple Cacodemons and there was no room to maneuver my Dodgemaster ability.  Oh well...

So, I decided to try a different strategy this time...  I left my Strength low so I could put more focus on Dexterity.  It's an expensive investment, since Dexterity points cost more, but I was hoping that the increased dodge chance would pay off in the long run.  It meant that I had to spend a lot more time kiting the larger monsters, but I was still doing pretty well and even as late as Night 12, I still had a good collection of resources.

The end came pretty unexpectedly.  I was running ahead of that horde of monsters you see in the mortem, (including a demon) and I had a priceless opportunity to get a swing at a Wraith that was severely wounded and at the front of the group.  I had 6 hitpoints, but I was berserk at the time.  I thought I had a good chance of killing it with one hit.  I thought that, even if it got a swing at me, (which wasn't certain) there was a good chance it would miss, and even if it hit, I really didn't expect it to be able to do 6 damage through my extra defense from being berserk.  Looking at the game and analyzing it afterward, I still think my death had a really low probability to happen.

Oh well...  on the plus side, it's my highest scoring game so far!  Highest number of kills too; almost 2000!  :D

Berserk! / Crash! D:
« on: July 06, 2018, 02:08 »
I was playing BerserkRL, doing fairly well, Night 10 with decent equipment, and the game suddenly crashed.  :(  It displayed the text of the error message right on the game screen and I copy/pasted it from there, so there's a bit of in-game text mixed in with the error message, but I'm sure you can figure it out.  :)  (I also made a copy of the log.txt file too just in case)

Code: [Select]

Abnormal program termination! Please write down the above
to help get rid Berserk! of all those bugs! You only need
to write down the filenames and linenumbers.

EDIT:  Oh, interesting!  When I started up the game again, it had a saved game on Night 11.  (the following night)  I skipped the demon fight!  I should invoke this crash more often!  :D

Let this be an indicator of how bad I am at avoiding damage that this is my first time getting the medal for taking less than 50 damage in a game and I had to do it on easy mode.  :P

I don't even remember when I started this game; I just loaded up DRL today and there was a saved game there that I'd forgotten about and I decided to finish it off.  :)  (It was on Hell 2 and had only taken 9 damage so far!)  I took 4 more damage before the end from a Cacodemon that was on the other side of a wall which I broke through with a Shockwave pack.  (I thought I was far away enough that it wouldn't be able to shoot me; oh well...)

I could have easily gotten 100% kills and conqueror, but by the end, I figured I should just stick to the original goal and I homing phased out on the second last level, so I could be invulnerable against the Mastermind.  :)  On a related note, I just realized for the first time that the Missile Launcher has a full reload option; going up against the Mastermind while invulnerable was the first time such a feature was welcome.  :D

I now have all badges except Chessmaster's Cross!  Back in my heyday, I would probably have tried to play some spectacular game to get the last one, but I don't know if anyone's paying attention any more, so maybe I'll just play a short, perfunctory game just for the sake of getting it.  :P
