As an example, the ammo rewards you get in Hell's Arena are always the same: shells come in x8 packs, rockets come in x3, etc. If some of the special levels have to change a bit in order to reflect the ammo boons you may get on UV/N!, we can work on that. However, ammo rooms (link, spoilers) are similarly spawned with HNTR-like packs of ammo, and that would certainly be beneficial for various runs.

This one's really simple. Until now I've simply tried to bring it up in passing, since it's not a BIG deal, but as many times as it happens, I'd like it to get tracked.

Discussion / [VIDEO] DoomRL Tutorials (pre 0.9.9.6)
« on: June 08, 2011, 23:01 »
Welcome to my series of DoomRL videos in which I explain many, many, many things. Despite being a simple game, DoomRL has a vast collection of small details: all of them are important and just by knowing them you can improve your game. However, I understand well that it takes forever to get good at this game, which is why I'm not going to just explain things, I will do them myself. In these tutorial videos, I'll be playing the game in a number of ways for the sake of everyone learning what I do right and what I do wrong.

I will TRY to post about once a week. Given the way this first video came out, they will probably be long videos, so at least it's a good amount of content for being at that rate. We'll see how things go.

This is the OP so it's mostly an index. Whenever I post a new video, it'll be here instead of in the latest post. If, on the other hand, you have questions/comments/etc., definitely post here and I will reply to the best of my ability.

For those of you planning to watch the whole thing, I've created a playlist. If you're just looking for a specific level, see the (spoiler'd) index below:

--------------------------------------------------------------

In fact, call me a moron because this SHOULD have been quad Diamond. Usually I time the lava element until the very last second, but due to speed changes in N! the last second was skipped over. Still, Veteran Diamond is more doable than some other ones here, so I'm okay with it.

The only special level I skipped was the Mortuary on account of no Ammochain and no Berserker, which would have left me very little to work with. All the others were cleared up, I imagine a couple weren't counted due to enemies respawning before I left. (Spider's Lair is missing from this run, thank goodness.)

Destroyer Diamond is the most obvious badge-get here, so how about the others?

  • Gatekeeper Diamond was...unexpected. I hadn't realized that I cleared Hellgate without taking damage until the post-mortem, but I guess Firenangel was useful after all. As it turns out, the no-splash almost never came up, between radar-shooting everything, shooting faster than everything, and just about avoiding everything else.
  • Longinus Diamond was this run's primary objective. I captured the video of it and I will make some commentary soonHere's a video of me picking up the Longinus Diamond. I don't want to spoil how I did it JUST yet (so people in the know don't go blabbing), but I think you will be pleasantly amused.

Jumped from 1st Sergeant to Mjr General from this single run, too. Good times, indeed...

Here's a video of the run.

For those who don't know, HA Pwnage Medal requires you to beat N! Hell Arena (like the Arena Platinum badge) without taking any damage. To do this, I use the following strategy:

  • Play on AoMC. This makes tactics less luck-based and I rely only on lucky spawns for each wave in order to make the strategy work properly. The benefit is that my weapons are ridiculously powerful and can be used to reliably take down enemies from outside my vision.
  • Farm ammo. As long as I get captains and sergeants on dlvl2, this is easy. Most of my inventory was filled with only ammo by the time I entered (as you can see in the video). Ideally I'd want a combat shotgun, which I have here, but it is NOT necessary (as the chaingun is more than capable of mowing down just about everything).
  • Wait for Cacos to group in the center. This makes killing them a whole lot easier, since it becomes quite predictable where they end up. Pillar position in the Arena is somewhat important for this, but most of my attempts (including this one) did not have placement issues.
  • Once the Cacos are dead, begin corpse-stacking. I explain it pretty well in the video, but the idea is to kill enemies on top of corpses, thereby destroying the corpses that used to be there. This is vital before reaching the Barons, since they will require all of your firepower and you want as few enemies running around as possible.

I highly suggest watching the video for a good idea on how I completed it. It's somewhat boring, but all things considered I am playing the game pretty quickly and it STILL takes almost nine minutes. The key here is caution, and AoMC gives you the advantage if you heed it.

--------------------------------------------------------------

STILL haven't seen the City of Skulls this version. All the same, this was a nice break from the other ridiculous crap I've been attempting.

Floor 2 yielded TWO vaults, one filled with Demons and another with Cacos. I was 3/38% before the third floor. At this point, I decided to try a new possibility: power-modded speedloaders. Since assembling with WK2 allows for a single mod, this means it would be level 9 (given my build) both I would ever make one, but with some B1/2 in the meantime to avoid reloading pinches, it worked out just fine.

HA was a breeze, and I went into CC+ supercharged and with a small amount of zerk, so it too was a breeze. Since CC+ spawned on floor 6, I was actually level 6 by then. Got to level 9 around floor 12 and managed to create a powerloader right then and there: the next one wouldn't come for a few more floors.

Armory went VERY well (as you can tell by the Shambler's Head). Amazingly, I was only one hit away from both HA Key and Gatekeeper Diamond, the latter of which surprised me after the fact. The early game really didn't have issues, both in HP and ammo.

Later on, things became somewhat difficult (as you can tell I picked up an Iro in the middle of a dire strait), but patient shots out of vision and quick thinking kept me alive. Vault yielded a Baretta, perfect for another medal: the level itself was surprisingly easy, as by that time I had Fin3, giving my dual pistols a firing speed of 0.21s. Satan help any monsters should I be zerked at the time.

The climax of this run was my rather easy sweep of Mortuary. How on earth could Mortuary be easy on UV AoMr? Fire skull, blood skull, and hatred skull, of course! I actually went in with a lot of invulnerability, but with half the level cleared over time by the skulls alone (and the RIDICULOUS amount of health and zerk gained) I did not have issues defeating everything that came my way.

Somehow Dodgemaster failed to work on the Cyberdemon's first shot, so no trophy there. I like to think I amassed a nice collection nonetheless.

 Before him 12 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 10 of those were killed.




 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 2 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 1 killed the bastard and survived.

--------------------------------------------------------------

So I felt like getting an adrenaline rush with some interesting speedrunning. MAD build, aiming to double shotty the Cyberdemon at the end. The setup really lets me have fun, since I can get Shottyman either during or just after HA, so it really speeds up shooting and sidestepping.  I actually managed to complete HA/CC, HAr (thanks to a double shotty and not much moving on the Shambler's part), as well as the Wall. Thankfully I found a Nano Pack at HAr and, thinking quickly, I decided to don a power armor thanks to the next level having a red armor I needed (and a power mod I was keeping just 'cause). The Wall then became rather trivial, as I blasted to the other side and actually stormed out there, double shotty blazing. Only needed one med-pack afterward.

The last half of the game was sped through just in case I was low on time, but I hit sub-25 easy. Probably could have stayed for Spider's Lair (or at least searched for City of Skulls). Speedrunning really is a hell of a lot of fun.

Posting this here because mods don't have their own mortem forum.

Well I gotta say I liked it. After nuking it was...less interesting, mostly because there was absolutely no cover so I survived from one invincibility to the next, but the large variety of enemies kept things going. Bruiser demon's awesome; diabloist needs a buff for I love the attack, belphegor shows up surprisingly early for how rarely you see him, suicide skulls are hilarious. If it's possible to tone down the number of Arch-viles, it'd help speed up the pace (or, possibly, give them a huge buff but scale up the threat level accordingly).

Played a pretty standard rapid-fire build, nothing fancy here (other than a lack of MAc, I guess). Fully modded chaingun made sure I could get tons of ammo from captains, eventually picked up a nuclear BFG and modded that out in case things got hairy.

Thumbs up!

--------------------------------------------------------------

After becoming entirely fed up with the wide expanses of .992, I decided to start up the beta. Five tries in, I get ~120 turns of zerk going into the Arena, and the rest was pretty smooth sailing.

Arena sweep turned into CC/AM sweep (though not without burning a large med-pack or two), which turned into some REALLY fast leveling. I hit Vampyre around floor 8, even with rushes to the stairs. Level 13/14 wrecked me, so I used a homing phase to reach Hellgate and phased past the first wave, mopping up the Bruisers. UC appeared immediately next to me (along with a Vile, haha, very funny). AoD goes down after some decent zerks, pick up Mr. Scythe, at which point I never really got close to dying (save Mort). Notice I was only one floor away from Conqueror, too, as Halls of Carnage take WAY too long for a melee run.

I don't know if I should consider this legit (thereby adding to my count) but I certainly had a LOT more fun playing through it. The beginning of the game is far fairer to you with the recent map additions, even if it matters very little by the end.

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 92 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 88 of those were killed.
 1 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 2 souls claim to have killed him...
 2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

There were two points to this game:
- Aim for Gambler's Shield (which failed MISERABLY. I might have found 10 levers tops)
- Get some specs for the special Chained Court for the Wiki (at least I got that one)

The rest played out quite well and didn't really have any points of dying. Low ammo in some cases (although it's not surprising when you have nothing but ridiculously-chained weapons) but rockets blasted me through Hellgate and captains finally showed up around level 20.

High power Railgun is probably just about the most destructive weapon in the game. You can see me using it at the end there to snipe John Carmack and his Barons into oblivion without them getting even close. Sadly, high power nuclear BFG can't be fired. (Might be a good idea to prevent it from assembling on weapons where you couldn't fire, which is...I think just that weapon. Or at least a warning.) Kept the firestorm weapon pack from the Armory to build that assault cannon, great for destroying (without gibbing).

Found Necroarmor and Jackhammer but had no use for them in this build. Gold cluster is probably because I didn't take any damage after halfway through Mortuary (thank you Cateye).

--------------------------------------------------------------

For the sake of keeping a really cool secret private (for the time being) I rewrote some of the mortem. Because of it, actually, I probably need to go back and do this again at some point to test some things out. Maybe after I burn through a few Diamonds.

The objective of this (and a few unfortunate runs before it) was MAc and assault rifle, because I LOVE THE ASSAULT RIFLE. Good damage, fast attack, and lots and lots of accuracy that MAc needs badly. Mods were destroyed at points so I never got very far in assembling other gear, but I eventually got the rifle. Only took a few hits on The Wall, and only against the boss in the Armory. After MAc, Bru->Ber is the only way I can think of that makes UC doable in this version. Fortunately, that's pretty easy to reach if you're going YAAM. Got plenty of zerk going in and ran past a bunch of demons to make sure I killed the bastard.

The rest is a very, VERY cautious run through Hell. No Spider's Lair or City of Skulls, though I can't imagine having much of a problem with either. Vaults gave me a sweet Cybernetic Armor, and four stairs and a Mortuary later I was able to get it Onyx'd. Mortuary could've been REALLY easily but I sort of forgot about some of my gear at that point...

Tried to smoke JC without a nuke, but in the end I just dropped the nuclear BFG and whipped up a nifty little item I scavenged from an earlier level to survive the explosion. (Considering I wanted YAAM, this was what I was going to do in the first place.) Plenty of badges, and Elite Platinum has finally been snagged.

To be fair, the way MaiZure did Gatekeeper Diamond is the safest and most probable method. I took only one hit from the Arch-viles this time around (and a couple from Bruisers, although at that point I didn't really care) so I'd say it's possible in a standard game if you're careful and lucky.

Finally got a good run through to UC, and I only proc berserk twice in the whole place, neither of which were anywhere even close to the angel itself. I was certainly hoping for some better odds with my super secret weapon but I GUESS NOT. (This includes hitting AoD at least five or six times.) Didn't really feel like finishing up, so I got sloppy on the next level to a commando.

This is a lot harder than it used to be, damn. On the other hand, the game spawning nearly all of the special levels on the very first possible level doesn't give me much time to prepare for them, either. Also, Hell Arena Key is a total pain to get.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Not a whole lot to look at here other than the large numbers of stuff I built and found. I spawned just outside of that building where I died, not a very good position to be placed in. (I don't see why you guys say Ao100 isn't hard enough, the fact that you need to be lucky enough to not be placed in unwinnable starting positions 100 times in a row is good for me.) Definitely tougher than it used to be, though. Bruisers showed up as early as the 50s.

(I had this posted earlier, briefly.)

Coulda used a homing phase to get out of that situation, this really was a stupid death. Was aiming for Conqueror Badge, but rest assured that Elite Platinum is attainable (already got it last beta). You can keep guessing what the Xs are for, it really surprised me when I ran into it the first time.

I'm pretty sure this is the same rock used to get the Empyreal Band later on, but at no point did Griswald let me do anything with it. As you can see, I picked it up on the first floor of the Church, which I doubt should ever happen.
