 184 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 155 of those were killed.
 4 didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual.
 And 3 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 22 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 3 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 16 killed the bitch and survived.
 3 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------
As I'm about 250 arch-vile kills and 5000 total kills short of hitting Arch-Vile and most of the Platinum requirements looked way beyond my reach (I've never gotten past level 10 on UV), I figured my best shot at gaining a rank would be getting Technician Platinum which meant two more advanced assemblies.
So I went for a Scavenger build and for once it was actually useful.

Most of the game went by pretty uneventfully, using shotguns and rocket launcher / missile launcher to clear the enemies with the help of Int2.

Then Hell Armory gave me the missing mod pack for the Fireshield and although I never got the missing piece for building the last remaining advanced assembly (Antigrav Boots), disassembling the Trigun on level 18 gave me the last ingredient for something else - the Biggest Fucking Gun!
As this was the first time I've ever gotten my hands on that weapon and I was a bit low on ammo at that point, I pretty much ran through the remaining levels to get a chance to test my new toy on a proper target.
And boy, did it work! Just two blasts and the victory was mine!

Now I'm only one advanced assembly short of Technician Platinum and one more master assembly short of Technician Diamond...

Hooray, finally, FINALLY beat Ao100!

So far my record had been level 56 (in 0.9.9.4) or something like that, probably because I'd been so fixed on using Scavenger - and ended up getting screwed by the RNG each time.
This time I went for Malicious Blades and for the first time also survived long enough to get it.

The RNG seemed to play nice for once, the Railgun I found on level 20 helped quite a bit, but the real fun began when I found the Lava armor on level 30: 95% fire res, 75% melee res and 50% bullet/shrapnel/plasma resistance meant that mancubi could no longer do little but bounce me away.
Assembling the Cerberus armor + boots just made things easier and getting the Cybernano armor made things laughably easy.
The latter half of the game I barely had to touch the Railgun, the chainswords made short work of everything and even revenant/vile packs were little more than a nuisance.

For once the boss enemies were the easy part! Cyberdemons, shamblers, lava elementals - usually they were dead before I realized what I had just sliced to bits.
Usually the biggest problem was the knockback from enemy shots, often I was being thrown here and there by mancubi, revenants, hell barons and formers and taking whacks at anything I could reach.

If it wasn't for the level generation making fun of me, I'd have easily gotten YAAM. The only level which I didn't clear was near the beginning when I started in a corner with a horizontal acid river and a vertical lava river surrounding me. No bridges in sight.
I had no environment packs so I had two options - the easy way (the stairs were right next to where I started), or hoping to get lucky with the two phases I was carrying. I chose the stairs, but later began wishing I hadn't. Oh well.

One gold and one platinum short of Major and 19 baron kills short of Hell Baron rank :)

Just my luck, last time I found the GCB was in 0.9.9.4 and then I ran out of bullets.

And to make things worse, this time I actually found the gun before Cybie so I could have used that to finish Cybie off but I thought the requirement had been changed to killing Mastermind already...

Discussion / Roguelike of the Year 2011 voting
« on: December 22, 2011, 00:44 »
I noticed there's a voting going on at http://roguelikedeveloper.blogspot.com/2011/12/request-for-votes-ascii-dreams.html for Roguelike of the Year 2011.

Voting is still open for 4 days and you can vote for multiple games you like. I already voted for DoomRL and Desktop Dungeons.

DoomRL is currently 10th or so, I'd say it deserves to be higher :)

Requests For Features / Weapon comparison made easier
« on: November 08, 2011, 10:47 »
After reading the thread "DoomRL featured on Roguelike Radio", I realized there was one thing mentioned that had been bugging me for some time so I figured I'd make an actual feature request for that so it could be discussed better.

Currently when you find a new weapon, especially when it's something you haven't seen before the first question is naturally "Is this better than what I'm currently using".
You pick up the weapon and the inventory screen shows the damage, fire time, reload time and accuracy for the new weapon.
You open the equipment screen to check the current weapon - damn, it only shows the damage.
You open the character screen and finally see the current weapon stats.
If you want to compare against a weapon in the prepared slot you have to first switch weapons as the character screen only shows the primary weapon.

This is not exactly nice and handy.

Possible ways to fix this:
  • Add a Compare button (for example Tab) to inventory screen. After you would select a weapon using the arrow keys pressing the Compare button would then toggle compare mode so the screen would instead list just the currently selected weapon, the currently equipped weapon and the prepared weapon and show the stats for all of them.
    This way you could use one screen to make the comparisons.
  • Instead of the cool ASCII picture in the character screen, add a listing of the currenly carried weapons, armors and boots with the currently equipped stuff on the top. Choosing something from the list would then show how the current stats would change if you changed to the selected weapon/armor/boots and could be colorcoded to show what would improve.
    For example like this:

    ...
    Current fire speed is 1,00 (0,8) second/shot
    Current reload speed is 1,20 (2,00) second/shot
    Current to hit chance (point blank) is 90% (95%)
    ...

    Again you could use just one screen to make comparisons.
  • One simple improvement would be to just show the prepared weapon stats in the character info screen under the current Weapon rows. This would allow easy comparison of the equipped and prepared weapons.
    ...
    Weapon - pistol (2d4) [6/6]
      fire 1,0s, reload 1,2s, acc +4
    Prepared - shotgun (8d3) [1/1]
      fire 1,0s, reload 1,0s, acc +0

    Armor
    ...
  • Another way would be to add the fire speed, reload speed and accuracy to the equipment screen:
    ...
    [ b ] [ Weapon     ] pistol (2d4) [6/6]  (fs 1,0 rl 1,2 ac +4)
    ...
    [ d ] [ Prepared    ] shotgun (8d3) [1/1] (fs 1,0 rl 1,0 ac +0)
    ...

    This would also allow quick comparison between equipped and prepared weapon.

Of course many weapons have special features that this kind of comparison would not show but currently comparing even simple weapons is a bit annoying...

These are just quick ideas so I'm sure someone can think of better ways to make weapon comparisons easier.

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

I'd been fighting my way towards the Captain rank for a long time but the RNG was making it a 'bit' frustrating.
The most amusing failure was in AoP when the game didn't generate ANY green/blue/red armors for the first 8 levels! (I did get a ballistic shield on level 2 but it was soon gone)

I finally won my first HMP game even though the RNG gave me three consecutive arachnotron caves and almost gained the Veteran Silver along with the UAC silver but was finally forced to flee the second to last level because of arch-viles and mancubi.
So I was still one Silver short.

I soon realized getting 4 more medals would give me Heroic silver and looking at the list it even looked just about possible.
I quickly grabbed Explorer and Conqueror on ITYTD and seeing Uranium's example I figured I should be able to get the Compet-n Gold/Platinum next.

I hate speedrunning. I STILL hate speedrunning. It took me about 30 attempts before I finally succeeded and again the RNG decided to play pranks on me. These attempts were the first time I'd even seen Firestorm and Sniper mod packs and naturally there was now no chance to get WK to finally get some of the missing assemblies....
I even got Grammaton Cleric Beretta during one of the attempts and even got to Cybie that time but didn't have enough ammo to finish Cybie with the gun and got killed soon after that. So no Grammaton Cleric Cross either.
Grh.

Finally in this attempt i was lucky enough with the stairs and enemies to get to the end (even though some arch-viles and mancubi played ping pong with me over the last exit stairs). Berserked during the fight and chainsawed Cybie to pieces!

The real surprise came when the game announced I'd made Captain rank. Looks like I had also scored Untouchable Badge thus giving me enough for Heroic Silver!
Hooray!

Looking at the Gold badge list it will be interesting to see if I'll ever be able to reach Major or not.
Technician,Heroic,Strongman,Centurial and Arena seem just about possible, the others not so much :D

Before this the farthest I had ever gotten on AoB was level 5 so this was quite an improvement!

I gave up on trying for 100% when the RNG gave me a acid river with the only bridge blocked by lava. It didn't really matter much as I later encountered a vault full of arachnotrons and two levels with mancubus/archvile packs.

This was also my first serious attempt in clearing the Lava pits as I finally had enough envirosuit packs and Cerberus boots just to be sure :D
I killed everything else, charged at the Lava elemental - and it teleported away just when I got next to it. Charged again - and again it teleported away right when I close enough for a strike.
At this point I figured that was how the Lava elemental worked and as I was quickly running out of medpacks I ran away. After the game I checked the wiki and looks like I had just been really unlucky with the teleports....

When I entered the final level I only had 27% with one large medpack left but it was enough. Woohoo!

Now I'm one silver badge away from 1st Lieutenant and already have 6 gold badges but amusingly I still haven't gotten past level 5 on HMP :D

Requests For Features / Half-seen squares
« on: June 18, 2011, 15:09 »
Hmm, a small idea just popped in my head.

I'm a total newbie in DoomRL and currently trying to wrap my mind around cornershooting. It's an interesting and fun tactic but currently it's far from obvious when it can be used (and it wasn't exactly intuitive that it was even possible in the first place).

Currently the game shows everything in your LOS normally and all the squares you've previously seen as dark grey.
What if there were was a different shade used for squares you can 'half see' (i.e. can safely shoot at)?

This would take away the guessing and make it easy to learn the 'sweet spots'.

I'm not sure how this should work for the squares with enemies, though.
Just show them normally? (i.e. player can still use the color of the surrounding empty squares as estimate)
Make a similar color change for the enemies? (could cause confusion)
Use a separate 'half-seen enemy' symbol? (possibly too big a change from current)

Don't know if this is a good idea or not but I'm throwing it out here anyway...
