how long does it take to code a cool roguelike from scratch
Does anybody know the mechanic for failure/success for gain health and gain energy potions in Mage Guild?Does the success chance change over time, based on sphere collection, level depth, or what? Is it just random? Trying to be efficient with permanence/duplication.
>>252830283It's been a long time, but as I recall the more potions you use to raise your health and energy, the lower the chances that future ones will work.
Alright bros, I am the anon from before. Looked for a python tutorial and I can't even get through step one, which apparently requires me to run an executable that doesn't exist. I'm done with coding forever.
>>252834084Never mind, I did it. A bright future awaits me
>>252834084gotta learn the basics of python first, lad
>>252834084I remember doing this python tutorial many years ago (or at least a previous version of it):http://inventwithpython.com/invent4thed/Not about roguelikes though.
>>252826825You fucked up the link to the prvious thread>>252654570Also could have probably added Sil-Q 1.4.2 and Nethack 3.6.2 to the news.
>>252840583I just saw you guys died and made a new thread. My apologies it is not up to your usual standards.
Frozen Depths anon here. I have finally cleared the 34th floor and I'm preparing to face the boss. What do
It was inevitable.
>>252848617Hit him until he dies
>>252848617Save the game.
Which roguelike has the best soundtrack?
Can anyone link me some good escape music? Because I have to get the fuck out of here as soon as humanly possible
>>252853069That totally fits
>>252852956Congrats so far anon
>>252853154Enjoy bro but don't forget to take your time if shit gets too crazy. It's still a turn-based game anon
It's over bros. I tried.
SIKE! I WAS ACTUALLY RUNNING FOR A FUCKING ALTAR. I DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH PIETY BUT I MANGED TO REACH IT AT THE LAST TURN, SACRIFICE MY SHIT AND PRAY! THERE IS HOPE!
>>252853925Youuuuuu sonofabitch. Are you doing it, anon?
f5 f5 f5 f5
>>252854337How do you get colder in this game?
>>252854337I defeated the boss on D34 instead of D35. Not a big difference. If it wasn't for that, I would have actually died, so that's fine. But the game ain't won yet lads. At least I have a decent strategy now.
>>252854887Based. Now rest up and repeat!
>>252854887Fug. Will you message him and tell him all about it?
>>252855230I will tell him how much of a nigger he is and link him this thread
>>252854887Is this the first time someone's ever actually defeated the boss and made it out alive?
I found the entrance to the minotaur labyrinth in dcss. I don't want to attempt it yet. Will the entrance decay if I leave the level it is on or can I go clear lair or something then come back?
>>252855393According to the lore, it is. Some korean dude probably defeated the game without ever taking damage, but let's stay true to the traditional history.
>>252853336That from IVAN?
>>252854887Congratulations, anon! What was your build and strategy?
>>252855943>buildtwo handed weapon dwarf warrior. I never used throwing weapons because I couldn't be arsed. I figured two handed weapons are better because they deal so much extra damage, whereas the extra armor would let you tank one or two more hits, but this might be wrong. I also made sure I always had enough gold for a resurrection, the first thing I did was sell stuff to get it at the lowest price.But what really carried me through this game were two abilities: dash and knockback. These two (combined with destroy walls) actually allowed me to escape 300% speed heroes without even having to worry. I was able to get out of a tight corridor packed with powerful enemies, even though I was surrounded, thanks to destroy wall, dash and knockback. They are essential.
>>252854887Very nice, are you going to make another pastebin with your strategy?
>>252856351The general strategy was>accurate style for most enemies>defensive style only in extremely rare situations where it made sense>fast style when running away (every two seconds)>brutal style only when enemies were stunned or couldn't act, since it reduces armour by 10
>>252854843After defeating the boss, you can pray for cold. The secondary source are spotted seeds, which have a 50% chance of cooling you. I had eight of them, and by the time I reached the altar at 5 HP, I had 0. Potions of frost cool you very slightly but the damage they deal to you makes it not worth it, and I had to learn that the hard way. Frozen pools also cool you, but I didn't have any this game.
>>252854887back to the general after a long time, what game is this ?
>>252860205Frozen Depths I believe
>>252860205Read above: frozen depths. No one was able to both defeat the final boss and escape the dungeon until today.

>>252862959https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/blob/master/src/main-typew.txtThis one is a bit tricky, you have type the output manually. And because of the limited computing power of the Typewriter, you'll have to do most of the computing on Graph paper with the help of a slide rule.Algorithm for running Sil-Q on a typewriter:1. Compile the source into assembly using the makefile for GCU mode sicne that will give you an output that can be typed out on your typewriter.2. Copy out the relevant diagrams and tables for an x86-64 precessor, you'll need these in your calculations. 3. Take out your slide rule and graph paper4. Start crunching numbers, this step may take up to several years. Be patient and DON'T PANICK.5. Type out the resulting output on your typewriter.6. Mark your desired input in a notebook, then repeat step 4. from where you left off taking into account the input you just wrote down.7. Type out the resulting output either below your previous output or on top of it using an eraser ribbon or white out.The game can now be played by repeating steps 6. and 7. , All on your very own typewriter!

roguelikes, how about 'em, huh?
>>252874251I like them because they are fun, strategic and challenging.
>>252808439That gif is great
>>252874564Wait so DCSS isn't a roguelike?
>>252876848You are correct.
Trying out this new Ambush ability in Sil-Q and oh boy can you do a lot of damage as a stealth archer.If you combine it together with Deadly Hail and Rout you can probably chain kills together like crazy.
>>252878195Oh my, and I get an artifact helmet.
>>252878195Have you seen the new dragon-horn bowsThey must do crazy damage with a dedicated archer
>>252879872The objects.txt says it has 4d2 damage and weighs 4.5lb.Lets say you have 3 strength and shoot at an unwary enemy with the deadly hail bonus and get a double crit, that's 14d5 if I'm not mistaken. Maximum 70 damage, pretty good.
hello do you have pictures of Kai's elona adventures
>>252880780search the archives, they're probably there on /jp/
I'm the only one who feels uneasy and nervous while playing C:DDA? This game give me a strange feeling that something terrible will happen or pop up if I try to explore those weird locations.
Cooking: the roguelike when?
>>252883562You're supposed to feel that way
>>252885475I'm looking forward to your cooking roguelike, anon.
>>252887061I don't want to make one, though.
>>252887570Sounds like an interesting idea, hopefully we can play your cooking roguelike soon.
>filthy rag deals 20 damage 1.19 blows at level 19Kill me
DCSS isn't fun as a video game experience. It's more fun in a chess way.
What roguelikes have great core combat mechanics?Hard mode: no silGod mode: no doomrl
>>252893997 Lufia 2
>>252885475That's Caves of Qud>>252892024That makes no sense
Does CDDA have obesity yet?
>>252899295>That makes no senseSingle player video games are typically about enjoying the ride, not the destination. There's nothing to enjoy about DCSS's ride (current DCSS at least), it's a very repetitive and bland ride. The fun in DCSS comes from employing learned tactics to overcome obstacles and win, like chess.
>>252899574Sounds like you're looking for a thread long autistic argument.
>>252899574roguelikes are traditionally not about enjoying the ride, but about getting to the end. they're a type of puzzle where the gameplay is a sort of meta-gameplay that is learning to solve the game and the reward is knowing what happens when you finish the game, and the fulfillment from knowing that you managed to beat the game. this is why there's a relatively greater emphasis on spoilers. that winstreak speedrunning mentality is a modern adaptation.
Hell yeah, snipin' dragons.
why aren't you playing roguelikes on a Friday night/Saturday morning, /rlg/?
>>252900928>there's a relatively greater emphasis on spoilersExplain the popularity of Nethack.
>>252904635i'm not sure what there is to explain. it's just a very old and very hard game and not many people play it anymore. i really like nethack, it's my favorite roguelike.
MOTHERFUCKING SHIT NIGGERING PUSSY FARTSOf COURSE a water elemental has a two-tile frost aura, of course. Because the living water only has a one-tile aura, I should have expected that the big one has a two-tile aura, because that's the only way I could have expected that I'd be taking damage at a distance, because it's not like you can actually SEE the fucking aura!Fuck Rogue's Tale. Why is it so infuriating? Why is it so goddamn addictive? I'm like a battered wife at this point. I know the next death is just going to be more bullshit that I had no fucking way of predicting, but I'm going to do it anyway, because I'll be damned if I let this fucking game beat me.
>>252905559this is shilling and must be deleted
>>252905678show me my mistake
>>252904635>nethackfunny you should mention that particular roguelike,I just wish there was a way to change the player's character sprite like in certain versions of DCSS

>>252899574Counterpoint: I enjoy grinding.
What the fuck happened to the hunger system in DDA? You can eat a ton of food and 5 minutes later you're hungry again. What fat ass programmed that shit in?
>>252910028Kevin "Mcdonaldforbreakfast" Tyler
>>252910148god damn how do I even fix this autism
>>252910705>checks for hunger every 10 mins and then sets it to static values based on how much food there is still on your stomach instead of just making eating give you calories and those calories slowly get used upgod that is some spaghetti.
>>252910028I haven't actually played with the new hunger system, but from what I gathered by description, it's now impossible to see your actual nutrition level.Instead, you see how full your stomach feels.So you can eat some calorie-dense food and you'll satisfy your actual nutritional need, but your stomach will still be empty so you'll see Hungry indicator.Or you can eat tons of empty filling which will just stuff your stomach without actually providing nutrition, so you'll be still starving but your hunger indicator would be showing that you are Full.It's also written by a guy who doesn't check that his code actually works. For example, his initial version which he claimed was "ready for merge testing" had a sign for beverage quench removal inverted so drinking liquids made you more parched.
>>252910705>if five_mins > 0>not if five_minsdabbing on those spaghetticucks
>>252910028The food digestion system is currently being reworked to allow for obesity and so on. There are however no consequences for being fat yet.You don't need to eat food just because you are hungry.
>>252911539So how do I keep track of how much food I do need?
Where do all those artefact tridents come from?
>>252911614That is a fucking godly trident. Anyways, a bunch of merfolk lords probably had some duels down there and got picked off by something hungry after wearing each other down.
>>252911843>godly>-4 stroh no no no
>>252911590Eat when you are "famished" or worse.
>>252911976+11 elec with two good resists (albeit one is useless as a General Tso worshiper) is really, really nice. That strength modifier doesn't mean shit unless you're a hybrid.
>>252910028> Currently, your survivor needs about 2500 kcals every day.> Hunger is different from your physical caloric needs, and is instead based on the volume of food in your stomach - and the time since you last ate> If you are hungry, but don’t really need to eat - your hunger display will show hungry> If you are hungry, but need to eat - your hunger display will show very hungry> If you are hungry, and have a kcal deficit - your hunger display will show famished, and with a severe deficit starving> Your kcal count is internally measured out of 77000 kcals, and you can see how much in deficit/surplus you are by turning on debug mode.
what happens if I drink it bros
>>252912170BRO IT'S ESTROGEN DON'T
>>252912054>>252912149So what's the point of having "hungry" displayed?Just to completely mislead players?
>>252912458unironically immersion as a given reason.
>>252912540Eating half a moose and being a hungry again after ten minutes is really immersive.I can really feel like I'm Kevin.
>>252911976Is strength actually good? Last time I checked I was advised to invest into dexterity instead (Or Intelligence for casters)
>>252912458Well, I dunno. I'm guessing it's just supposed to be realistic.Also, as far as I understand, it takes time for your body to actually absorb the calories of the food you're eating, which might mean that it's better to eat before you actually run into a calorie deficit. (At least once they actually programmed consequences for calorie deficit.) It will probably eventually become a balancing act between eating too soon and getting fat or eating too late and having your body digest itself.>>252910148>>252912639The system rework has nothing to do with Kevin. It's by some guy called KorGgenT.https://discourse.cataclysmdda.org/t/getting-very-hungery-with-over-60-000-calories/19704
>>252912641Somewhere along the way they changed how stats work and made dexterity useless.Basically strenghtening reduces armor penalty and increases weapon damage with all weapons.Back then Dex would also increase weapon damage when using small weapons
>>252912827There's nothing realistic about this.You're not living the live of a programmer who sits on their ass all day, it's the zombie apocalypse.Obesity is the least of your problems.Kevin merged this crap into the main branch even though it's retarded and buggy as shit, he's definitely responsible.
>tfw you enter a 40% black floor
>>252913018If it's buggy as shit then post bug reports instead of complaining about le kevin.
>>252913236I rather revert to a commit before this crap was introduced.A bug report saying "this is fucking retarded" won't get very far.
>>252913357>A bug report saying "this is fucking retarded" won't get very far.Yes, that is the point.
>>252913706I could write a whole well-reasoned essay of why it's bad but you fucking know it's a wasted effort.Have you ever seen Kevin REMOVE a new overly complicated and pointless broken feature?How long was ranged combat broken again for an "overhaul" that still offers little benefit?
caves of CRUD
>>252914352Shoot, wait, other action.
I don't mind the gender stuff. But can't the devs see other people don't care?
>>252916301Can't you see that other people care?
>>252916301Mmm, the delicious taste of slacktivism.
>>252916513Oh fuck yes. They care so much if you give an inch of disagreement they'll say your brain is fucked up.
>>252916739Oh. For some reason I read that twitter post at first as being anti-genderstuff. I'm tired.
>>252912641Dex is hardcapped for dodging and other actions and stuff to like 28 or 38 or so? Str scales much better on otabs
>>252826825Newfag here. Are there any roguelikes for Linux (laptop)? Is it possible to make roguelikes on Linux?
>>252920447Most roguelikes are on Linux
>>252921002Good to know, thanks.
>the game spawns a 300% speed upgraded enemy that instantly chugs all the piety I gathered in the past 15 floorsfault
>>252920447Yes, check your repo. So far I've seen angband, nethack, powder, dcss and tome. You can also use wine to run win rls like elona with little to no issues (mostly midi problem, just install timidity and switch in-game music to MCI). No luck for caves of kek though
>>252916301Am I missing something to the drama here? The tweet you posted is clearly responding to other people who DO care. Unless he's just mistaken and there's nobody complaining about non-binary genders? But that seems super unlikely, there are people who are so incapable of separating them self from their political circlejerk outrage culture that they'll complain about anything that seems slightly "sjw" regardless of context. Unless I'm misunderstanding something it seems hard to believe that "people don't care"
>>252916301Is that guy holding two pieces of shit in his pic
>>252926612lol, the irony of exonerating sjws whilst accusing a "political circlejerk outrage culture"
Not used to playing non Formicids anymore. Game was kind enough to remind me how though!
>>252885475I want tinfoilhatrl. You go to a secret base in antarctica, fight jews, reptilians, pleiadians, freemadons, iluminatti, and win by proving the world is flat. You also use mkultra psychic powers to help your journey
>>252928079i'm careful enough for now, i learned to be maining Formicid. not having teleport/blink/haste will really change your strategys

>the game spawns a 300% speed enemy right next to you that takes away half your hp with each hitTo be fair, I did do a thing that has a chance of spawning a random monster. Fault.Frozen depths is bullshit guys. That winning run was beginner's luck, this game is a fucking torture

>>252937985not sure if i want to run exe axe, so used to having 2h+ shield. broad axe should be good enough righti have literally every option right now, and two eveningstars, one i rebranded to freeze at +5
Maxwell's Coffin on DDFi, y/n?
>>252936669Duh, the fucking game is a nightmare. I usually make it to the 3rd boss with a LOT of consumable burn but sometimes the game just shits on you and makes every wand a Nightmare one that'll summon a Fierce/Superior something to shit on you
>>252938748Yeah, broad axe is just fine>>252938758Is that the platearmor or head cage?

>>252949623I'm like 80 spaces away
>>252949207Grazing can be slang for just eating slowly and constantly throughout the day. Like "I didnt have lunch or dinner today, I have just been grazing since I woke up from my nap.". Seems pretty hedonic to me.

what are your favourite roguelikes to play casters in?
>>252963002I'm not a brainlet, so none
Would you rather learn to play a couple of coffee break roguelikes, or focus entirely on a beefy roguelike like Nethack?
>>252927296>using anything with rage>current year
>>252966281It carried me to elf:2 hall of blades where I got a distortion one. It's all about positioning and threat managementBeing cross trained in axes to almost mace mindelay also helped forsurethough
>>252963002Angband makes a fun caster. Nethack too, nethack spells are so op it makes it pretty fun at least before you get the amulet and energy costs go up a lot.
>>252827119A game that's actually "like Rogue" takes a few days to create.A game like DCSS with lots of content/options, both a terminal and graphical mode and neat stuff like search features, maps and dungeon management is another thing. I suspect balancing a game of that scale is an evergoing work too.
>fell down a shaft into the boss floor with 50 hpcool
>>252968204Just like in the movies. Now is your time to shine.
>>252966084A couple of coffee break RLs, so I can actually learn from my mistakes instead of having to check spoilers for everything in case it ruins my hours long run
>>252966084Gun to my head, probably the coffee break ones, but ONLY if they truly can be learned and beaten within a day or two of starting if you're non-terrible. Otherwise, I'll choose a beefy RL, but only if it's not as spoiler-laden as Nethack -- something like Angband with monster spoilers activated is perfectly beefy.
I'm on DL25 bros, will probably defeat the fourth boss with ease. But I'm gonna be busy all week so I'll see you. I know you all come to this general just to see my posts so I'll be there

>>252984762really you only need one up (left or right) and one down (same) in some spots. usually i dont even botherthe real thing to learn is engaging knowing you cant tele and yes i suggest TSO because cleansing flame at 20+invo destroys entire game>>252985432yea, lig'd and cleansing flame spam murdered everythingside onteholy fuck i hope zin can purify me with only 7 mut potsmnoleg and slime did me super dirty this game
White women fuck dogs.
playing gargoyle should be considered cheating
holy shit i havent seen dispersal traps as a non formicid yettomb is nasty as FUCK nowi dont even know WHAT'S going on
>>252984762also shafting in hell is nice, bring mapping scrolls though. and abuse the 2h+shield ability. its literally the only reason to play them
>>252984762Not the guy you're replying to, but yes, 100% until you're untouchable (which isn't hard on a FoFi).Remember: digging as a Formicid is essentially free, and you should dig even if you're in danger as long as your back is to a wall -- you literally have no other escape options (besides shafting). Murder holes don't need to be complicated: just make sure only one monster can possibly be seen.V:5 should be shafted into -- you'll hopefully land away from the center, which is massively dangerous with -Tele and no haste.With my FoFi, I leveled shields knowing that every major break point was at a 1/5 of the skill required for a given shield type (so, for the regular shield, every 1.8 skill levels, since Fo penalty is eliminated at 9 skill). I always recommend maces and flails since mindelay is easily achieved, they're common, Formicids don't have great physical apts, and both the best 2H option (great mace) and best speed option (demon whip) are solid.Otherwise, it's the same skilling as other otab types: get some Armour and Dodging, maybe some Invo and Evo as needed, maybe other ranged options, and do the whole "offense -> other options/defense -> defense/other options -> rinse and repeat" thing.I highly recommend skilling Shields a bit earlier than other defense options, tho, as it will help lower your attack speed and give a big boost to your defense, all while not costing too much XP due to Formicids' good shield aptitude. Shield+weapon is usually a good starting skill choice, IMO.

Fucking pricks. Even roguelikes aren't safe anymore. Fucking something awful faggots. FUCK. Just make everything female at least then it will stay constant. Or would they then shoehorn in some fucked backstory "this elite ventured into the dungeon to seek the orb to make a gender transition" etc etcSickening

DCSS noob here, is there any point in wearing 2 rings of positive energy?
>>253008412When fighting people with spells that are of 'darker' side, something like undead stuff or skeletons that can drain you or hit you with dark spells, since each ring gives one pip of rN and it helps a lot later on, especially against drain
>>253008412two rings give stacking benefits, but you're almost always going to be better off diversifying your resistances or even just wearing like a +2 stat ring since so few attacks inflict the type of damage rings of positive energy defend against
>>253008052They should just make it so every race spawns with the orb of zot already, that way you'll be able to win for once
Does the orb still appear in inventory, or is it some hidden thing now?

Nethack is a shit game objectively
>>253013547True. No one here plays nethack
>>253013929I play Nethack!
>>253015495You are not a person
>>253015876Thats kind of rude. However in the interest of friendship and community building I will offer you a peace offering in the form of an old vintage review of Skyfox, a true classic. Disregard the other game on there, its one of those dusty old games that nobody has even thought of for twenty years. Really gotta get around to cropping it out sometime...
>>253016412I never knew Nethack's tiles came from Rogue. It feels a bit odd seeing something so familiar in something so old.>Needing to explain what hit points were and how they work.Gaming was truly a wild frontier back then.
>>253017074I wonder if it really is the tiles from nethack. It would seem kind of odd to see proprietary graphics ripped off in a game like hack/nethack. But it does look pretty similar I have to say. Perhaps after epyx went out pf buisiness they relinquished the rights to it or something. Maybe I'll try to download and emulate the Atari st version of rogue if possible and test it out for myself.

I decided that hmm today I will get into angband/variants but one glass at frogcomposband has intimidated the fuck out of me with the options. Is it actually super complex playing the bands or is it just the overwhelming options?
>>253029278Roguelikes are for brainlets, so I guess it's not that complex
>>253029278Angband gameplay tends to be pretty simple. Keep some escape items around, wear a resistance to every element and condition you're likely to run into, and keep enough your HP high enough to not get oneshotted. FCPB's complexity comes from its ridiculous variety of races and classes.
>>253029278*bands aren't that complex, it's just that they're long games and later in the game you're always in danger of getting absolutely destroyed if you don't have the correct resistances(and even if you have them)
>try *band stuff for first time>playing monster because im not a pussy>scroll of monster confusion confuses menice

Kill white males.
I cleared mage guild with a Cosmic/Dark character specializing in staff bolts. Drain is the only dark spell I wanted, but it's insanely good. It costs 1 MP, it's overall the best healing spell in the game, and it can carry you through the first few floors on its own. Time stop is ridiculously good once you have enough MP to abuse it, but it didn't work on Mhiu and probably won't work on any of the final bosses. Mhiu seems like she's the worst of the final bosses since she's fast, invisible, and has an instant death attack.
>>253031740how do I know if they’re white? or even male? they all just look like letters on a screen
>get statue form>receive 15 runes for freeah yes, big brain caster gameplay
Alright, I procrastinated slightly and now I'm about the level 35 boss. I'll be fighting him here, which seems like a pretty based strat

God has abandoned me. I only have 4 spotted seeds. Place your bets
>>253038568Fuck it, I bet 50 bucks on you making it.
alright, no fucking way I'm making it at this rate. There is a frozen pool on the other side of this floor but I don't know if it's actually gonna help. If it puts me in a cold state, I might make it. Otherwise, I'm doomed.
>>253038879Can you just unequip everything and run naked to cool off or something?
>>253038982I'm already naked. I'm already fucking running. There is no source of cold, I must get out of the dungeon to save myself
The pool helped. I must see seven more floors before I can get out of here.
>>253039359You can do it anon! Don't rush and plan carefully your steps!
>>253039359Do you have any hp potions or something like that?
>>253039478I don't. But the sage did! It's over, I'm standing in front of the exit now!
Guess we can throw this game into the shitter now
>>253039771Great job, anon.
>>253039771>tfw nobody bet against me>tfw I won't get any moneyDamn.
>>253039771Nice. Gj anon! Write a guide for the pastebin, please?
>>253039771Thoughts on the game? Is it actually good? Or were you just playing so you can be the first to complete it?
>>253040185>is it actually goodWell, I loved it, but I don't know if it's the knowledge that I was the first to beat it that made me carry on. It's a game that always keeps you busy, even though it's relatively short. Though I have to say, you can't win every run. Sometimes the game just doesn't give you the resources to do so. But then again, you can't win every Nethack run, can you? I defeated it in less than twenty tries, so it can't be that unfair.Another reason to keep playing: I only won as a dwarf warrior, probably the strongest combination! You can still try to play an elf archer and see what happens.
>>253035563The game is Mage Guild but that's a dump file, not a screenshot from the game itself.Its site isn't up anymore, but it's available in this archive.org page:https://ia800401.us.archive.org/zipview.php?zip=/34/items/ArchiveRL.7z/ArchiveRL%20v1.0.zipThe file isArchiveRL v1.0/Beta_Stable/MageGuild (v2.0.3)[stable].7z
Do dcss is bringing back darts.Lame. Hopefully one day we can return to throwing actual weapons again. Nothing like having an orc warlord chuck a +5 elec battle axe
>>253040703>But then again, you can't win every Nethack run, can you?No, but you can come awfully close.
>>253039771I was reading the guys site a while ago and on his last update he was predicting that a good player could win pretty consistently. I thought that was a bit ridiculous but holy shit didn't think somebody would get a full on win the next day!
errrhow bad is gozag wrath? this no corpse shit is getting brutalhttp://crawl.akrasiac.org/rawdata/Ketziah/Ketziah.txt
have any roguelikes had items in containers and containers in containers along with player inventory yet?
>>253039771based deepfrozenanon did it
>>253046378Isn't gozag one of the few with basically no wrath?
>>253046906>nethackguess i should qualify my question with realistic containers with mass limitations
>>253046906Yeah, you can do it in nethack. I think it even has some good use too, you can put a bag of holding inside a oilskin sack to protect your items from water damage. You can even with great difficulty put a bag of holding inside a bag of holding which will doubly reduce the weight of whatever you are carrying.
>>253047048seems like its only 1/3rd fail pots and enemies sometimes gain might/haste/berserk for 2XLthinking of switching to Usk or Mak
>>253045879>last update four years agoWhat a fucking shame. At least, if he reads my message, he'll see that someone still cares. I'd donate him some money but I don't even have a job
>>253047758I wonder if nobody has every truly beaten the game until you did. As far as I can tell with google searches it seems like you are actually the first. Its a shame though, since it does seem to be pretty well known in roguelike circles.
>>253049504Like 6 months ago (or maybe a year, time flies so fast here) some anon here played intensively for like 2 weeks, and iirc the best he did was reaching the deepest floor but dying on the way up, when the "cold" theme is reversed?I think he also mentionned mailing the dev then and the dev saying he himself never beat the game.
>>253050056damnsound slike a game i should try
>>253050056Oh shit, thats a real shame. I guess people just really fell for the meme that the game was unbeatable. Or maybe you were just the first one to discover what skills are needed to beat the game.
>>253050056>I am actually a fucking god of the roguelike worldJokes aside, I was reading the guy's website and he says something like "soon someone other than me will beat the game". That should mean the dev has actually beaten the game. Do you have a link to that thread?
>>253050708I guess the wording is ambiguous
>>253051079Doesn't seem ambiguous at all. It's very unamibigously saying that he's beaten the game.
Anyone done the Bey Lah quest in CoQ? I'm stuck at trying to find evidence. What forms can evidence take? I think I talked to everyone in town and surrounding it, checked the floor etc. but it seems I'm still lacking some
>>253051220Oh yeah, reading it again you're right. Now I feel less legendary
>>253051220He could be implying that he thinks he will be beating the game soon, but that he hasn't yet done so.
>>253054107Hey, free xp
>>253056331Can someone explain that webm
>>253056331Wait whatWhat happened?
If I had to guess judging by the visible messages, he managed to somehow tear off a part of his tank by colliding with the scooter.According to the relatively recent (about half a year ago) vehicle-related change, torn off parts can become separate vehicles instead of collapsing into a pile of loot as before.These vehicle parts were placed after his tank in the movement queue. As such, when his tank tried to move next turn, it crashed into a separated part which didn't got it's turn to move away yet.That crash resulted in tearing another part of his tank off, which then caused yet another crash, and so on and on, as his tank instantly collapsed on itself.
>>253056720>>253056652watch his speed at top right corner, :18 to :21 sec
>>253051714I think you're a true hero, anon.
>>253056652Looks like he was driving something and crashed and died.
>>253050708My memory is foggy. Look up the archive I guess, but who cares anyway. >>253050252Im not the guy who beat it today (>>253047758), but I do know he's not the first one to at least reach the bottom.
Why would anyone play CDDA
>>253059481No, 96 is not vehicle mph, it's his character's movement speed.He got thrown out of the tank (or rather the tank stopped existing around him), so the UI switched from vehicle control to the regular one.Vehicle speed was not really that much, 48 mph.
>>253059828Yeah, there is a pastebin on the OP with the guide that that guy probably wrote, and that's where I found out about the game

I've been playing ToME, but I'm in the dark eith some information that apparently I can't retrieve from the wiki.What's this "healing mod"?
>>253061649Cool just died in L:6 because I had no magic mapping and kept tele'ing into packs of monstersHonestly I can't express the rage I feel when I die to a shaft it's just a random punishment for no fucking reason at all, there's no counterplay besides wasting resources, it's completely random, there's truly no fucking reason for them to be in the game.
>>253062072>there's no counterplay besides wasting resourcesI, too, immensely hate spending consumables. If the situation calls for quaffing a potion or reading a scroll, the situation is unfair.What if I need to read tele 27 times during the orb run but I only have 26 scrolls because I used one in lair?Might as well just suicide and start anew if you had to spend something.
>>253062604lol>>253062072shaft happens bruhjust rerolli just lost a troll in V:5 guess whatrerolled, +4slay ring on turn 8just keep playing maybe the game aint meant for youhow many total games have you got
>>253062072Nice fault, retard! Next time play more optimally so you have more resources to save yourself.
>>253062072>there's no counterplay besides wasting resourcesOn a serious note, play some sprints to learn how to use consumables, evocables and god abilities.In a regular game you are fighting popcorn most of the time, so it's easy to fall into routine and forget about your options when they are needed. Sprints, meanwhile, constantly force you to fight enemies which are too powerful for your character, so you need to consider your available resources and find a way to win. You'll be surprised how much a right pot or zap at a right time can affect your performance. And if you fail, you've only lost a few minutes of your time, so you can immediately try again with a different approach.Granted, sprints are pretty unfair and poorly balanced, but they are a good help in learning the game.

>>252963002Tome has a very neat gameplay for casters, especially for a non-mana users.
CONGRATS TO THE FROZEN DEPTHS ANON! It's so nice to see a legendary ascend in here. Won't lie that I'm jealous, I usually died inbetween the 3rd and the 4th boss so to see someone ascend so quickly after saying they'll try it is both disheartening and encouraging. Are you gonna push for the true ending or cut loose?
>>253072716He's already reached won the game. See >>253039771
>>253073480OH SHIT NEVERMIND IM A FUCKING RETARD WOW HOLY FUCK THAT"S AMAZING
>>253073626what was your strat anon? I'm the guy that beat the game
>>253073864I was the one who warned you about speedy shitters. Anyway, I generally ran a dwarf warrior for a while but it felt really difficult, especially around boss 3 (doesn't help I'm extremely inconsistent with my resource use). Moved onto a human ranger and generally kited with throws into melee shredding, but the final boss always proved too much and between stages 4 and 5 the resource burn would prove too much. Doesn't help that sometimes i'd get shit like no sage until floor 20. LEGITIMATELY HAPPY THOUGH GOOD FUCKING JOB! I feel someone needs to put this ascend into the next OP
>>253075256You found boss 3 difficult? Now that's weird. As a melee character I just lured him into a spot where he could only hit me from point blank and, in my winning round, he only took away a resurrection from me
>>253075456I'm a very bad player and I have very little patience, plus I found his repeated jumping around very annoying and much easier to deal with in ranged since throwing actually starts doing good damage IF the floorgod is lucky with the drops. Funnily enough, looking at my scores, the majority of my post-boss-3 deaths are either to Fierce enemies or random environment shit. The worst one that I'm still giga butthurt about was getting piety cut on one floor, then stepping into a tropical floor, catching fever from the first enemy, stepping into an unavoidable tp trap, getting tp'd to the other side of the map, stepping into a sleep trap then boiling to death because the iceblock wand only had 1 charge left and I had no seeds. I think I posted my bitching about it in here some months ago, it was like the ultimate frozen (boiling) turd sandwich
>>253076058Well, shit does happen, I had my fair share of dumb deaths as well. How long did you try to beat the game?
>>253076412Like 10 days at a time every few months, playing it coffee break style. I'm counting like 40-60 tries overall? I really enjoy the game, it's pretty random in the resource department but it STILL somehow feels beatable and merciless at the same time.
>>253062708>just ignore this glaringly huge design flawno>>253063407I hadn't used any TP/blink/heal/fog/fear up to this point, burned them all trying to find an up-stair. Did you miss the point where i got shafted into the final fucking floor?>>253064198I've played and beaten sprint many times>>253065287Cool, there wasn't. Shafts are random and sometimes put you in completely unwinnable situations, especially in the early game.
>>253076716Alright, not to flex but I won in less than 20 tries, so I guess it's not that luck based. Your pastebin helped immensely though.
>>253076957>I hadn't used any resource at all till I got thereSure thing Mr Fault alas 0% winrate
>>253077205Beautiful. You can't defend it because it's an indefensible design decision so you resort to pretending you don't believe me. Don't (You) me again, brainlet.

>>253117361>Dungeon Cringe Shit Show
@fuckstoolSo my choices are a game made by a cuckold and a game made by a tranny. Gee, it's almost like you're baiting me anon. Listen shitboot, I play what I want, you play what you want, and if you give me shit I'll call you out on it. Now sit your ass down boy, I didn't ask for your sass.>>253065247Because if I don't die in the Lair I die in the Shoals, and if I don't die in the Shoals I die in the Labyrinth.>>253061649My shaft ruins your mom's box and gives her the kid she always wanted.>>253046467Ragnarok has that, but it's mostly tied to urns having more urns having more urns having more urns having more urns having some green powder or a piece of meat.
>>253117679Imagine being this bad at DCSS. This is actually sort of hilarious, there are people in this thread right now who are winlets
>>253117920Well not everyone is good at DCSS. I do better at Caves of Qud and to a lesser extent ADOM. I do much better though in a lot of the smaller 7DRLs, and unless anyone else can claim otherwise I'm the only fuckhead in this thread who has beat Decker.
Yes I know Decker is not a 7DRL, shove off. I'm not your mother, you don't get to plow me. Real issue is Drain Storm doesn't work on Windows 19 and I'm not sure how to run it in compatibility mode. That game was the tightest shit. If any game needs a remake, it's ones that don't run natively on currrent OS. Fuck remasterinng Skyrim, that game isn't even ten yet.

To: Two, five, three, one, two, two, five, two, sevenSubject: ResponseDear Two, five, three, one, two, two, five, two, seven,I am writing to you in regards to the post you submitted to boards.channel.org on 05/13/2019.In that post, you asked, quote, "how did it get worse over time". The response to your query is as following:The developer team of Caves of Quqoldry has long since abandoned pretenses of developing the game in lieu of giving fake virtue-signaling nods towards mentally unwell individuals claiming to suffer from "transsexualism". They instead utilize their game as a political platform in order to normalize aberrant behavior such as gender-neutral pronouns instead of focusing on improving the game's mechanics. Please refer to the attached image as further evidence and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions.Yours sincerely,Anonymous

Someone make a 4chan roguelike
>>253206271What would it be like? What features does it have?
>>253206512Boards are floors, you're trying to reach /j/ to slay the great evil of Gookmoot. The gimmick is that instead of actual procedural generation the game employs a system in which the respective board's catalog is accessed at map generation to create something. The slower, more static boards could be earlier to create a consistent earlygame while the fast, chaotic boards produce an interesting endgame.
>>253206694>The slower, more static boards could be earlier to create a consistent earlygame while the fast, chaotic boards produce an interesting endgame.I think it should be the other way around because you will end up playing the early game a lot more often than the late game, meaning there should be more variation in the early game.
>>253206831True, and while a less varied earlygame is more boring it does lead to less early bullshit deaths since you pick up the tools for the later horseshit. Another good reason for fast boards being earlygame is that the fast boards are generally entry-level while the slow ones are more specific and niche. That being said, when the lategame is more consistent a game will basically have a sort of difficulty hump and then no more increases as after the initial struggle you know what you need to do and likely won't be taken too far off the path to that.
>>253203384Nah, this is an actual instance of testing before merging. You can tell because the PR is open and not merged.

>hokuto no ken roguelikeholy fuck
>>253112778Haha, I'm a bit late but I did notice your message. Reading this thread made my day, congratulations & props Frozen Depths anon!The game has been beaten before, but I can't remember if anyone has reported getting the best ending. Multiple people have lured the last boss back up to the first floor, killed him there and then escaped. That's actually why I originally separated the endings. Luring the boss up is clever, but not hardcore enough to deserve all the applause.It's also fun to notice that you didn't abuse Yell, that's another skill that can be used strategically. Your speed skill strategy does seem more reliable, though.And to prove that I'm the real Frozen Depths dev, you can check the game's home page now. I saved the legend for future generations to witness.Oh, and I'm 100% sure no one has managed to get the best ending with an archer. :>
>>253224735Have you gotten the best ending yourself?
>>253226953Nope. Didn't have the patience to clear the way up for a smooth escape when I was playtesting the last version. I just estimated that it's possible with an optimal strategy.
>>253224735we big time now
>>253224735I love your game. I haven't beaten it, but it's given me a very fun break from the other tedium, it's mechanically interesting and it's such a shame it's not being dev'd anymore.

High AC or high EV in Crawl?
>>253231308High EV anyday. It's much better to avoid 10 crystal spears than to eat every single one at 50%
>>253231308High AC anyday. It's much better to be able to take 10 crystal spears than to eat a single one and lose 50% hp.
>>253229791Thanks!Unfortunately by this point the game's source code is an unmaintainable ball of spaghetti. Further development would be hell without extensive refactoring. I don't have the time for that, and since the code is a mix of Finnish and English, it's unlikely that anyone else would untangle it either.
Been playing Guild, so far I like it, even made me get over my ASCII aversion, only problem is it's buggy as hell.Are there any other roguelikes where you get a party of adventurers and can switch control over them that are aren't buggy?
>>253231796Thats a shame. Any chance of a new roguelike being developed? Good new real roguelikes are pretty rare, so it would be a waste not to ask for it.
https://github.com/dcandido/crawlthis is based
>>253224735fd anon here. I must say you are pretty damn based. What even is yell, what's the strategy there?
>>253224435Berserk RL exists, there's also the Castlevania RL but it's almost a decade ago. I wonder what happened to it
>>253235324Heh, and I thought those new games with roguelike elements/mix genre roguelikes were all the rage. I enjoy traditional ASCII roguelikes (real roguelikes?) a lot, but at the moment a tabletop RPG project is consuming my development time. Perhaps I'll dabble in roguelike development in the future with a smaller or otherwise experimental game, but it's unlikely to happen in a year or two.Roguelike development has a low barrier of entry though, go start a project of your own!>>253236890Yell drops iceblocks randomly around you. It's kind of like a random wand of iceblock creation. The strategy is to dash away from an enemy and then yell to block said enemy away from you, or to make sure enemies can't surround you. Monsters don't destroy iceblocks so you can safely rest behind the ice wall. But as I said, it's not 100% reliable.

>>253291527Does practicing zen help with rlg?
>>253291527This is deeper than just vidya, it is a special case of general "theory of learning" or even living, with "dying" being just how you fail in roguelikes.Early on, it is beneficial to explore an environment.The actor in this exploratory phase must be tolerant of failure, otherwise the exploration will be very incomplete.The goal of the exploratory phase is not to "win" or gather score, but rather to understand the environment by seeking novel states of it. Novelty is not a well-defined term, but many relatively simple definitions will still work here.Once the actor passes a certain point, reaching further novel states will require suppressing the will to explore "known boring" states. For example, reaching 0 hp can be considered to be "confirmed boring" if it has happened 1000 times before and always had the same effect. It's not easy to always avoid 0 hp, but the actor will no longer actively try to get there.This novelty seeking behavior has actually improved the game scores of neural networks that played some games.That is: rather than actually seeking to maximize the score, the networks only tried to seek out novel states, yet they achieved better maximum scores than networks explicitly trained to maximize the score.Now, novel->score is not 100% certain, rather it is a part of good game design. A shitty game may instead reward "loops" where you keep returning to nearly identical state but with more 9mm ammo and dildoes to craft shit you don't need with.

>>253316493>two dominate abilities for mutant, one for true otherkin>possession ability to level up your minions>minion-spawning abilities like fugueThough it's not a good one because of bad game design when it comes to ally xp.There is no way to non-tediously arm up a useful buddy, you either grow up with your Red Stone sweetheart you fell in love with when you were both lvl 1 or you slut it up and keep jumping dicks like a conservative slav girl.

>>253316493What this guy said >>253317343You can make it revolve around having a party if you want to. >Though it's not a good one because of bad game design when it comes to ally xp.Really? I didn't notice, at least for Fugue it's perfect, and I thought it was for the Domination as well (so that you always get 100% XP no matter who makes the kill)
>>253318993The most well-known one, I think, is Hellcrawl.Among the ones being either actively maintained or merging most vanilla commits, there's bcrawl (which used to be X-Crawl) and Gooncrawl.There's also Bloatcrawl, which doesn't change much to monsters/items/environments but adds a fuckload of new races and backgrounds.See also: http://www.ultraviolent4.com/other/forks.htmlAnd search the Tavern and /r/dcss for more forks.
>>253318993Hellcrawl and gnollcrawl
>>253319246The problem is when you want to keep longer term minions.Minions gain as much xp as you do. If you dominate a new minion, their xp is minimum for their "race". The only way to level up the minion is to grind with it and the higher level you are, the less xp you both gain.A late minion will never catch up with you, but will always be too dumb to flee when in danger.
imagine splatting when you're a floor away from victorythat's what you're doing right now, /rlg/
>>253313749But I like grinding
>>253313749that works almost in any game. it's easy to find a way when you no longer have a chance of dying. or risks are minimal. though it's not working with stupid games like nethack
