Requests For Features / Mortem suggestions
« on: March 29, 2011, 17:55 »
If the player exits a level within five seconds of entering it, add a line to their history: "He hurried through level X." Mostly to poke fun at the players who homing phase through scary caves or the last few levels. :)

If the player has advanced in rank during a given run, that character's mortem file should reflect the advance. It's kind of lame to pull off a bunch of kills or get enough new medals and then not be able to show the rank off until you've started a new character. Heck, I'd even go as far as to say that rank advancement should be specifically noted in that mortem as a landmark ... something like "He advanced in rank from X to Y!" just above the 'he played for blah blah time' line.

Custom mortem files. By which I mean, a few config options that allow you select which parts of the mortem you do or don't wish to see. I don't feel this is actually necessary at the moment, but the upshot would be that you could then add options to display more arbitrary statistics for curious players. (Like ... a table showing how many of each enemy were killed in each level, or the total number of keypresses made in the process of the game.)

Discussion / Theory: AoMC vs luck
« on: March 28, 2011, 00:44 »
People have often said that the Angel of Max Carnage requires more skill and game mastery than other challenge modes. The in-game description itself opens with "You hate chance,". However, in my experience an AoMC run involves a greater element of luck than standard play.

Why? Because AoMC eliminates only a single - and perhaps the least important - element of chance from DoomRL. In a standard run, thousands of shots can be fired. These will range from misses to max damage, but due to the very large number of rolls it is incredibly unlikely that on any given run you will give or take notably more or less damage than usual. In small situations a single roll can be important (eg. under fire from a mancubus), but these situations are uncommon enough that a player can reasonably predict and either avoid or recover from them.

By comparison, the mere existence of an invulnerability globe on a given level will make a much larger difference to the weapon damage given or taken. As these are rolled for only when a level is generated, there is also a much higher chance of abnormally many or few globes during a given run. In the extreme case, whether or not Hell's Armory appears can make a significant difference to a player's firepower - and this roll is made exactly once per run.

Fixing weapon damage in itself might shift the luck/skill balance slightly towards skill. However, by fixing the damage at maximum several other luck elements become much more important than normal. Let's look at the mancubus example again. In a standard game, the player can run behind a corner and kill it without risking much more than a large med pack. In AoMC, the same player with the same tactics risks instant death; the random chance being whether the mancubus moves or fires on the turn the player spots it. That one random roll now becomes much more important than the entire succession of rolls in a standard game!

Playing with high skill will reduce this. So would playing with high skill in a standard game, ergo the same player will be most influence by luck on AoMC regardless. The reasoning is fairly simple: Setting the damage high inevitably raises the consequences of other rolls, and sufficiently bad rolls can not average out over the game because, of course, the game ends when the consequences hit 'death'.

Conclusion: Sudden death is awesome, but there's a reason pro gaming tournaments don't start with it. :)

0.9.9.2 / [M|15m9s|55%|YAVP] Melee > shotguns
« on: March 27, 2011, 05:09 »
Are shotguns stronger? Yes. Do shotguns let you kill enemies before they can even see you? Sure. Is it easier to win the game with shotguns? Pretty much.

But you don't have to think to grab a chainsaw and charge wildly at the nearest cacodemon, which makes successful speedruns that much more likely!

There's no way I'm going to pull this off on UV, though. :/

I swear, the RNG just did not want to give me a combat shotgun. I was already falling behind on time after searching the first few levels, but then I saw two berserk packs close to the red stairs and thought WHAT THE HECK. The loot on the other side included two rocket launchers ... and two regular shotguns. I promptly blasted myself in the face with a rocket and charged an arachnotron/demon combo with 50% health.

Let's call this a 50/50 blame share.

... should immediately explode them. Why?

a) It would be hilarious.
b) It makes sense.
c) It would give AoRA players an extra tactical advantage in that they could actually use the nukes they found.

8
I was playing AoRA, flooded a room with acid, ran away wounded, was caught by an imp next to barrel. All as normal. Then I quickly tapped enter to get back the main menu, but at some point during the barrel explosion > death animation > nuke explosion > mortem display the game crashed.

Com - bat, shot - gun.
Reloading speedier, much less per one!
Com - bat, shot - gun.
Firing quintuplet before we're done!

Oh combat shotty, why can't you see
I need you in my inventory
From corner shots to scouting blindly
With you I feel safe, relatively

(Chorus)

Oh combat shotty, what would I do
Using a standard shotgun not you
Drop-off is killing demons but few
Forget this weapon, time for one new

(Chorus)

Oh combat shotty, where are you spied?
I need your pellets in hell knight hide
You'd save on med packs that I'm supplied
How about this door?

You open the door.
 The imp fires! You dodge! The barrel explodes! The barrel explodes! The
 barrel explodes! You hear the scream of a freed soul! Boom!

NM, I died.

0.9.9.2 / [U|95%|YAVP] Finally!
« on: March 08, 2011, 19:04 »
This mortem is not particularly exciting other than how long it has taken me just to get that UAC Gold Badge. Sad fact: I'd actually won UV twice before this on AoMC and AoMr, but then suddenly it was nothing but stupid bad luck on the upper levels and stupid bad playing on the lower. Anyway, annotations follow:

Requests For Features / Naming your weapon
« on: March 07, 2011, 17:35 »
Just for fun (and probably a config option), you could be prompted to name your weapon after adding the 5th mod to it. The name would then be displayed in lieu of 'modified whatever' and the colour changed to light green. :)

I was so perfect. I could shoot down anything within one second. I could blast special levels to pieces with BFGs to spare. I could punch through walls in a couple of never-ending volleys. I could shrug off mancubi barrages or I could clear entire floors without even being touched. I could heal, skip levels, anything. I had everything.

Except decent footwear.

Sigh.

I spawned at the edge of maze level, near the stairs and a computer map. The combat shotgun, rocket launcher and heals were, naturally, on the OTHER side. I made it to them fast enough but was aiming for 100% and missed an enemy on the way. This culminated in the most needlessly dramatic countdown I've played so far:

11+ ... Hopelessly searched for the last enemy while tired and nowhere near the stairs.
10 ... Found the last enemy!
9 ... Fired at the former.
8 ... Reloaded my shotgun.
7 ... Fired again and cleared the level.
6 ... Swapped to my rocket launcher. Blew a hole through the maze.
5 ... Slowly started reloading.
4 ... Finished reloading a fresh rocket.
3 ... Fired at my feet and jumped across the maze.
2 ... Landed just a few tiles from the stairs and dived for them.
1 ... Fell onto the stairs and
*nuked*

Discussion / Marks of Shame
« on: March 05, 2011, 21:29 »
Inspired by Mrazerty's trash medals, I think this needs a topic of its own. These hypothetical 'awards' wouldn't be counted or displayed in your player info, but would result in some kind of silly/snarky one-liner being added to your mortem. Some marks would be excluded from certain challenge modes. (Sloth from Ao100, Waste from AoB etc.)

Code: [Select]
Mark of Cowardice     - Quit the game on Phobos Surface
Mark of Soreness      - Quit with 1 HP.
Mark of Temptation    - Died from flooding the level with acid/lava.
Mark of Idiocy        - Died by pushing a barrel into acid/lava.
Mark of Clumsiness    - Died on a floor that was cleared.
Mark of Arrogance     - Died within 10 turns of entering an optional level.
Mark of Sloth         - Died after 8 hours playtime.
Mark of Regression    - Died from a former human while clvl 7 or higher.
Mark of Misfortune    - Died the same turn as using as phase device.
Mark of Waste         - Died without any ammo.
Mark of Avarice       - Died while holding 3 or more large med-packs.
Mark of Forgetfulness - Died nude and holding armor, both for over 100 turns.
Mark of Regret        - Died standing on an invulnerability globe.
Mark of Reluctance    - Died standing on the stairs.
Mark of Weakness      - Died with a BFG in hand.
Mark of Recklessness  - Died by a rocket jump.
Mark of Impulsiveness - Died by a nuke before level 25.
Mark of Ignorance     - Died by firing a Revenant's Launcher beside you.
Mark of Decay         - Died with a max HP of less than 10.

Add your own, provide one-liners, or admit to how many you've 'earned'!

Why? Players might accidentally misread important messages otherwise, and I just freaking nuked myself on L16 of a 100% AoRA run while literally standing on an invulnerability glove, is why. :|
