Can I play DoomRL without sound? If answer is yes, how?
Two options here:

1. Check out the config.lua file in your DoomRL folder. There should be settings called GameSound and GameMusic: setting these to false will remove all sound and music from the game.

2. "(" Turns off sound in-game, ")" turns off music. You can press them again to turn the sound/music back on. (Note that this only works once you actually begin playing, not on the main menu.)

Noobtip: Preferably an ingame one. Otherwise might become a little expensive, especially if you have a modern HD screen.

Guys, keep the humour tuned down.  This is supposed to be a helpful thread for quick questions -- having too much humour posts will defeat the purpose.

Hell, if this becomes a pure humour thread, I'm going to unsticky this one.

My question may be  kinda  childish, but there it is: Can I play DoomRL without sound? If answer is yes, how?
The thing about this is that if you play DoomRL without sound, you will lose a very large cue on where monsters are, since the monster sound is weakly directional, giving you the hints on where might the monsters be.

I used to play without sound, but didn't manage to get very far in the end.

I know, this is hard to complete DoomRL without sound, but my sound card was broken and I couldn't play DoomRL, because of critical error.

The nuclear BFG and plasma rifle can be overloaded into a nuke. Does it detonate immediately, or is there a countdown like with the nuclear bomb?

...Prompt answers appreciated. I'm staring at the cyberdemon right now and want to know whether to pop my lava element before or after. >_<

Never mind. I took a stab in the dark, and it turns out you do get a 10 second coutdown.

Well, that was easy! I didn't even need any medpacks. The game's not so bad when you amass an arsenal powerful enough to blow up a planet.

d stands for dice.

2d4 means that it rolls 2 four-sided dice, making the damage range 2 to 8. 9d9 means to roll 9 nine-sided dice, making the damage range 9 to 81.
