General Discussion / How to get my Steam key resent?
« on: June 02, 2020, 21:49 »
Hey guys. I was an inner circle backer (Diamond level, if I remember correctly). I know that steam keys for access went out for backers at this level a while ago but I don't remember ever getting the email with mine. Is it possible to get my key resent? I had access to the Inner Circle forum all during dev, so I know my backing was working correctly, I just don't remember ever getting a key and now that the game is well along in dev I'd like to jump back into it again. Thanks!

I think my favorite part of the KS was the unofficial Twitch "after party". It was cool raising a glass with the CF team in celebration while being half way around the planet.

Can't wait for the inner circle fun to begin!

I've updated Evilpotatoe's excellent manual keybindings to allow quick swaps of all weapons in 0.9.9.7.
Original thread: http://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,6115.msg52888.html#msg52888

I made a few tweaks to his/her layout to group things in a way that makes sense to me and to include the new uniques which were added in release 0.9.9.7.

You can drop the following into your keybindings.lua file (found in your DoomRL base directory). You'll want to wipe out any old bindings that might conflict with these.
The concept is simple, you just use CTRL-ALT along with the appropriate letter/symbol on the keyboard to quick swap any weapon the same way the standard 1-0 keys allow swapping of standard/assembled weapons.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I've provided both a graphic and excel spreadsheet showing my layout for reference while playing. I tried to group things similar to the paradigm EP set up, keeping like weapons vertically arranged in groups.

I tested them all and they work for me. Let me know if you have any feedback.

Thanks guys!

Discussion / Re: Plate Armor vs. Tower Shield
« on: March 05, 2015, 15:40 »
Hey LD,
I have a spreadsheet with all collected stats on weapons, monsters, armor, etc. (which I'm in the process of updating and am about to publish here for everyone).

I was watching some old "Let's Play..." videos and saw a guy assemble the Plate Armor. I looked on my sheet to see its stats, but it wasn't on there, so I searched for it directly on the wiki. I went to add it to my sheet, but noticed it matched an entry I already had (Tower Shield) exactly. Since the video was old, and since the Plate Armor page isn't linked on the Assemblies page, I'm assuming it's just an old item that was phased out.

Discussion / Plate Armor vs. Tower Shield
« on: March 05, 2015, 08:03 »
Hey guys. Just came back to the game after a while off. Compiling some spreadsheets of data and came across something confusing.

The Tower Shield and Plate Armor are both listed in the wiki as being an assembly based on Red Armor with PO mods added:
http://doom.chaosforge.org/wiki/Tower_shield
http://doom.chaosforge.org/wiki/Plate_armor

They also show to use the same icon.
Did the Tower Shield supplant the Plate Armor in a later version of the game?

Cool. Thanks for the info, EP. #3 was exactly what I was searching for but hadn't been able to find.

Discussion / Ultra Keybindings - 3 Technical Questions
« on: April 10, 2013, 21:56 »
I have a fairly-customized keybindings.lua, but being a coder, I'd like to take it as far as possible. A few questions:

1. Is it possible to assign multiple commands to a single key? "Macro"-ing, if you will. It would be nice to set a single key to "COMMAND_RUNMODE" then "WAIT" rather than hitting (default) "," and "5" each time. (Or is there some easier way to wait in place that I'm just not aware of in gameplay?)

2. Has anyone figured out a nesting logic to be able to say... set a keypress of "3" to iterate through all of the different unique/assembled/standard shotguns to attempt to select them in a particular order until it finds one you have?
     If what I mean isn't clear, to have nested logic where on a press of "3" it attempts "command.quick_weapon('upshotgun')" and if that fails then "command.quick_weapon('uashotgun')" and so-on until it hits a weapon you have in inventory. The logic of the order could be set in keybindings.lua logic nesting so that it looks for the user's preferred (i.e. most powerful, by the user's definition) first and iterates down to the "weaker" weapons.
There was some discussion similar to what I'm talking about here, but it doesn't appear to have ever been fully-resolved: http://forum.chaosforge.org/index.php/topic,6116.msg52893.html#msg52893

3. Is there a centralized list of all the object names used in code for the weapons? I checked the wiki and didn't find. it. I would like to know how people found the names "upshotgun", "uashotgun", etc. when they were doing extensive keybinding definitions.

I find it helps to pick a master trait from the start and aim for it; it'll help in plotting out long term tactics and inventory management (ammo, in your example below, was running pretty low...). Don't know if it'll help you, but it sure works for me.

That is helpful, thanks. I just completed my second game (AoSh) which was rather easy as I plotted my traits from the start (plus being limited to only needing shells helped keep me in line with ammo).
Once again I ended with 96%, but only because I stupidly went into the Containment Area when I didn't have a weapon to get through the wall, otherwise I would have gotten my first 100%. Bleh. Next time.

Good show. Do you always go without a master trait, or was there a specific reason for not taking one on this run?

Thanks. And honestly I wasn't expecting to go this far, I just decided to play a quick, non-challenge game and next thing I know I was all the way to the MM. So I wasn't thinking long-term in my trait choices early on. By the mid-game I had already blocked the masters that would have been helpful, so I just kept stacking on single/double traits that helped along the way.

 129 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 119 of those were killed.
 2 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 6 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 2 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 2 killed the bitch and survived.

I had a win early on (.9.9.1 or so) but that was with invul and a nuke so I don't  really count it since the game is so different now and that really wasn't a battle with the MM. This was my first legit win after over 125 games.
Visited many of the new levels (*love* playing levels where I can easily see what original Doom level was the inspiration. Great job on that KK!)

After "training" with all sorts of strategies I can see myself getting better, tactics getting honed, etc. All from the info provided here and in the wiki, thanks to everyone for all their work.

Love Malek's Armor and the Railgun. Had some great luck along the way, but previous experience also makes it much easier to plan ahead. Although I kept stumbling over tons of tech packs. So many that I didn't know what to do with them all and even had 3 in inventory at the end. Want more power! :P
Used the AMS to open and clean out the vaults for the first time (I've been to them before, but only broke through the walls in the two weak spots). Used the lava element to take a few swipes at the Mastermind, then railed her to death.

Every time I feel like I'm getting worn out on this game, another level/aspect to it pops up and it's like a whole new world. Thanks again for all the work to give this to us, KK et al!

Discussion / CyberDemon dodging
« on: March 24, 2013, 17:32 »
I've been playing since .9.9.1 and have come up against the CB many times, and beaten him a fair number of them, but I don't feel I have ever gotten a grasp on the timing of dodging his shots. Even with Dodgemaster and a bunch of HR bumps. I've read all the strategy info I could find here, watched videos, etc. I understand the "move perp to his shots", etc. But how anyone manages to pull off a damageless run against him, dodging every shot and never getting spalsh damage from the pillars in the ToB is beyond me. Can anyone shed any light on the sequence/timing to outwit that punk? :P
