Old thread: >>127165287
Alright this assumes you know what your doing with computer, but I can easily explain it step by step.
Basically you get python, and make sure you have a package manager to download those new python "wheels", I use pip (https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py).
Then go to http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#curses and click the first link under curses (cp27-none-win32). Save that file somewhere.
Then do a "pip install <file path of the file you just downloaded>" in cmd and you should have curses functionality running in windows.
After that you just do a "python fcrawl.py" in cmd and it works.
damn and just at 4.20 spawn rate,
eyy that's pretty good
Tested this out, if you are on a 64 bit system, you will need to download the second link.
Also just "fcrawl.py" worked for me.
How do you quit? It's ^C in cygwin, but I am unused to using cmd for anything other than simple .bat files.
took three posts to come up with that conclusion
I've seen faster
Releases are made through termcasts containing bpaste links with the source.
Development is done through exchange of floppy disks containing diffs via snailmail.
There is not a blog.
too easy, statue form is still the best form, even with the nerfs
dragon form still sucks, when are they gonna make statue form the lvl 9 transmutations spell
pan lords can't stand in the face of lawn-ornament cat statues
Pretty sure that crystal spear on average does slightly more damage per point of mp, is more accurate, and requires less casts to kill in general because it's more powerful. But it has less range, requires more mp (which could be bad if you're low on mp and need to attack), and is probably more swingy in the damage you notice because you're casting it less overall relative to iron shot. And it might not actually kill faster/more efficiently if you're 1-2 shotting things anyway. But I don't know; as a backup irresistible spell for a caster I'd just go with iron shot because it takes less spell levels and has more range. But spellforged servitor can also cast crystal spear so that might be the better choice. Might be better to use on bosses too. I don't think the choice matters that much though. And actually I'd go with orb of destruction as an irresistible damage dealer for a (non-earth focused) caster because it's pure conjurations, meaning I don't need to invest heavily in earth magic for good power, although it comes with its own problem of being delayed and sucking ass in corridors.
got hell and tomb left
I don't want to use that noisy as crap disc on this frail little felid, he's strong, but not strong enough to always take on the whole level at once
Also, can you still get to Tomb if you're carrying the Orb of Zot? I think it'd be fun to get the tomb rune while on the run, but I remember someone saying that some portals close when you pick up the orb, and I'm playing .17
Here, found the image that was in that OP.
I play tiles because ASCII doesn't represent information as succinctly as tiles does. Like, with tiles I can tell from a glance that there's a monster with some status effects standing in shallow water and in a steam cloud
No- you play tiles because you can't into ASCII and that's perfectly fine, but there's no need to lie about it on an anonymous imageboard.
I tried playing lucky yesterday but I decided that if I really want to have fun since I won't win nightmare PCB without a rune knight I might as well go the full mile and play a sexy character.
My treasury grows richer!
However, STILL NO DRAGON FORM. I am the shame of dragonkind.
Should i use use some of my huge wealth to spam gozag shops and hope for a bookstore?
Do you think they'd look nice inside the temple or is it better to summon them outside?
MuMo is purposely limiting your options to test your playing skills
orbrun tomb is similar but with a layer of "how broken of a character can you build" and that's not nearly as much fun
How can i see which uniques i've killed in my game?
I loaded an old game and don't remember which uniques i've slain.
Also, once you finish a game, is there a "history" file which tells each action and command you used from start to end?
Why is the Obsidian Axe so perfect?
I really can't find a better and more fun weapon no matter what
Shit tiles, shit character building, borderline roguelike due to adventure mode and difficulty slider and overall a pretty unfun game.
I'm confused on where to go next. I'm thinking I might go elf:1 and elf:2 to try and get some better equipment maybe some poison resist.
Do your second branch -> finish dungeon -> find vaults and complete it to 4 -> explore depths until you feel like its too much -> do V:$ -> MAYBE elf. Why do all MiBe's want to splat in elf so badly?
Akrasiak is down but I know the spicerack was doing it semiregularly close to the .13 tournament, I'm pretty sure Sar did it too at some point and Dicksman had an Op in the tournament that did it as well.
Elf is super easy with axes or polearms, disc of storms and Makhleb
With Trog you'd have regen, berserk, MR and it's easy too. Heck just quaff a pot of might, agi and kill those low as fuck hp elves.
The game does not support save states at this point.
Expend haste or torment on early killer bees and make sure to move back if they are one tile away so you get to hit at the same time.
>What do you guys think of TOME?
1. RPG aspect
Most of the time, I don't read journal text.
Shoving tl;dr text in one go isn't the right way to tell a story to player.
You barely can talk to anyone and they're weak, if you want to massacre them.
There's not even a guard.
Except for Unique and boss, you can always one or two shot them.
There's a huge gap between one class and other.
One class can steamroll the game easily, others have a hard time.
4. Poor writing and disgusting shit
The Shertul backstory is really retarded.
Pregnant woman as boss and orc vulvae.
It's amusing how the fuck this shit can get into steam.
5. Last thing
Argoniel and Elandar did nothing wrong.
keep in mind that people here can write up a long list of why dcss and pcb are shit too so if tome4 looks interesting to you, you might as well play that instead of getting bullied by nofuns
Yes! YES! My purpose is complete! Now i can die in a rune branch in peace.
Spawning that shop cost me quite a bit of gold, but i also bought manuals when i'll have to train dodging again, not to mention the book that gave me Dragon Form.
I did one some time ago. Being on holiday and being offline most of games, no proofs found here other than this screenshot. There was also post on /vg/ but eh.
Also, GrFi of TSO is essentially cheating anyway.
Does anyone has the link to the new version of Unreal World? I'm not "Donating" anything to get the game.

Good old nightmare mode spawning OOD monsters with +60 levels than you.
The kirin are native of Dlevel 76.
And here's my first true mistake.
In fear that the portal might have collapsed, i didn't have the time to go back to my lair and take my rings of frost resistance.
Am i going to get my shit slapped or can i make due with +++ MR and Dragon form huge HPs?
No, i can't come back, i HAVE to collect every single item in the game.
Sil is probably best. It's like a bearable truncated *band.
Brogue is an improvement on rogue that has distinct enemies, significant terrain, tough situations and enemies that aren't a tabstorm in a 2 hr package that keeps the original sp[irit aof brief games instead of this retarded fuckup 27 hours in and welcome back to a shit tedious earlygame of your 40-60 hour run. . Read https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.games.roguelike.development/xEICB75s6iE
Infra arcana is pretty tight s well
Crawl is probably theb est in acessability. The tiles, tutorial, and ease of minotaur tabbing or za spam is good for easing people into the pool.
>It reminds you of the stone of lore
>This stone gives +2 cha, permanents light (3)
/r/ing you winning brogue
>duplicate image exists
Fucking captcha. This is what you get anon. Nothing good comes from keeping a stash. You'll have to pray it isn't the freezing cloud version.
It seems i got lucky? never encountered this version of Ice cave. Is it better or worse than the freezing cloud version? Anyway i already killed two statues that spammed freezing cloouds and ice beasts, now i'm in a demon mansion or some shit.
Better this way, since i need space to translocate all the eventual loot home.
Actually Sil and Brogue are great because they keep things streamlined and simple.
It doesn't work for Crawl since Crawl was originally a hacklike. Brogue is more interactive then Crawl ever was.
Read a book one of these days.
No, kid, what's killing crawl is the tournament and score board. The devs are too much focused on this aspect.
Most of them have a huge stick in the butt too, so accepting mistakes is pretty rate.
Beat 4 blizzard demons and all the simulacra.
I think the most dangerous one was a Hydra with 10 or something heads, but aside from that Fireball, breath and simple mawling did the trick.
It was a very fun variant, and the loot was proportionate to the challenge: 2 randarts (one is a buckler with stats i don't like, the other i can't equip) and scrolls of magic mapping and other miscellaneous consumables.
Pretty good drop for D:15. I also grabbed cammithrim. Still haven't killed meng huo.
Go into the wilderness then back. and it'll have regenerated. It's just a low chance to fuck over stairscummer bots and toINTERESTING SITUATION people who go into dragon's lair/olympus and shit thinking they can dip with impunity only to have the stairs collapse and be in view of awake very angry things.
Nobody knows. I don't even know the lore behind these things, just that they're seriously underrated.
Anyway I actually killed the dude because I can't farm him reliably, but I believe that's gonna bite me in the ass soon enough when I don't find a wand of cloning.
Usually I find the stairs by going into the world map and entering that swamp from south, but now after it collapsed I can't find it anymore.
I went to the wilderness and nothing happened.
I go in with recall, find an upstairs and then after using it disappears too.
Do I need to detect doors and stairs to find it again?
You know, I was joking when I made this. I didn't think anyone would ever actually fucking do this. Rip tablord, you double fucking minotaur with your dirty minotaur neck. A smarter cow would have lived.
You are right, that's why i dealt with them with spells mainly, and when (and if) they reached me in melee i'd cast haste and slap their remaining shit in dragon form.
Anyway, cleared the Shoals, took a fuckton of turns to take all the items to my lair, used the occasion to also identify most of my loot and organize a bit the stash. Between this and since i'm almost literally spamming Dragon Form each time there's an enemy (or even sometimes for fun, see pic related and when i visit my stash), hunger is really taking its toll.
Goazg here is my saviour, it's truly an hoarder's greatest ally with its shops of infinite quality food.
Now to plan the next step.
I wish Trog would gift me a proper weapon.
Although I should complain. I found this dagger and Chilly Death pretty early, which works rather ok with stabbing and Slay+
I guess the bets thing for me would be to rebind it directly to another key, but how do i do so?
I mean, i guess i can copy-paste the tilde key to rebind it, but how or where is beyond me.
Put the following text in your prf file. If you don't have one, make a .prf file and paste this in there. This binds ~ to Ctrl+G. Feel free to change "^G" to whatever you like.
>What is a yeek, anyways? What do they look like?
something like this :^)
Where should i create such a file, what should its name be and how do i create a .prf file?
I googled this but i'm afraid i got it wrong, since it requires office.
Isn't there, like, a text file where i can create a macro to do this?
ok, since your yeek is sexy you can always imagine her as an elin from tera :^)
i dunno, i always imagined my kobolds in dcss like that too... and felids... and spriggans
not as elins of course, as doggirls, catgirls etc
yeek is somehow related to bats iirc
>, i always imagined my kobolds in dcss like that too... and felids... and spriggans
you are weeb trash and I bet you like monster musume
come back when you like real monstergirls
Felids are literally cats though. Spriggans are tiny little plant goblins. No idea what a yeek is, but I guess what I want to say is stop projecting your fetishes onto everything. Its makes you come off as the "Dare you enter my magical realm?" guy.
Do I convert to the TSO and then go hell?
I have never experienced being punished so that might be a problem. I also have an annoying berserk mutation. I also have a battleaxe of holy wrath so I could maybe just use that not convert at all.
>that borders furry, friend
The usual way to do it is convert to TSO and run through crypt to get maximum piety. After that, you do pan -> hell -> tomb. You'll want to get rid of that berserker mut and stop using that -tele amulet. That'll get you killed.
You don't go to Hell, you go to Crypt or Abyss first to grind TSO's piety.
People usually dive Hell to 7th floor ASAP, because there's no loot, so there's no point in exploring all floor.
Hell effect is nasty too, so you'll want max TSO's piety before exploring hell.
>I have never experienced being punished so that might be a problem.
Prepare a method to blink (either through ring or blink spell). You don't want to be in the middle of raging summons later.
> I also have an annoying berserk mutation
Go into Zigurrat and find potion of cure mutation, the first 10 floors should be safe.
>I also have a battleaxe of holy wrath so I could maybe just use that not convert at all.
You convert to TSO for healing on demon / undead kill, and that sweet Cleansing Flame AOE. Brand holy wrath on any executioner axe you have, and keep 1 battle axe / executioner axe of anti magic for backup.
>Get to level 16, go to O:2
>Kill almost everything, encounter Erolcha
>Get paralyzed by freak chance and widdled dead
Oh, I realized you've never experience trog wrath. You'll really want to be able to get out of a bad situation at a moments notice. Perhaps with an evocable blink. Trog will drop berserked gank squads on you. Wrath will go away once you get enough experience, so you'll want to waste no time in gathering experience. If you haven't cleared zot, you can do something like TSO convert -> crypt -> zot 1-4. Trog should be mollified by zot 2 or 3, but you'll get into some hairy situations. You'll have to get creative with your evocables.
>you attack hoarmurath of dir
That was a mistake.
I should have checked what that W was.
Ugh, these OOD spawns in nightmare are so annoying.
>killed on levcel 32...
>by the mouth of sauron
well at least even the dev says in the description that nightmare isn't even remotely fair.
Oh a screenshot you say
I don't. The first ten floors should be safe.
I always stay alive at the 10th floor.
If you encounter dangerous situation, just hole up in the corner, read teleport scroll, read scroll of fog, wait until teleport kick in and read scroll of blink to teleport you to exit.
Ziggurat nowadays is pretty easy to escape because they removed -cTele.
The problem with Ziggurat is people don't know when to stop after the safe floor.
Waaaah, I can't find rF+++ rC+++ rElec MR+++++ ring, just one more floor after this 15th floor -> 3 Pan Lords + Tormentors + Hell sentinels -> dead.
Press M, look for it, fail, exit to wilderness, move 2 tiles away in any dir then back, repeat until stairs: Get. Stairs being under shit is literally satan and Chris should be ashamed.
Around the time I died cause I slipped up counting my accumulated move delay from the hat of pondering and took a torment+hellfire double death from 73 hp cause >healing yourself. Now that I know how to take it easy, that shit doesn't kill me anymore.
This is true though, Trog's spellbook is the best one in the game
>gifts high level Melee/Tabbing dual school spells like exec axe

Just pick one that's suitable for your taste. I like RetroDays20px but make sure you disable tiles you want to post screenshot here. Enable it again after you're done. Some people are just really anal if your screenshot has tiles.
Sil 1.3 released!

Alright. I'm rolling a FoVM. Looking for Vehemut as a god, Sif will do if I find its altar first. I'm not sure how to level my skills, though. Should I focus Venom? Conjurations? How many points would be necessary in air and spellcasting? Should I get dodging?
A little help and advice would be greatly appreciate, splunkfriends.
This is it.
Level 30 achieved, and with it, Double Attack.
Seeing as I'm doing 300 on average, it means I'll be doing 600 with the double shit. It costs 30 mana though so I can't use it a whole lot.
Prepare your anus, mister Pendragon.
Haha forget what I said about double attack, it's at 68% failrate right now.
Not that I need it.
That's really good compared to Grip's normal amulet
this randart thing is kind of cool. I like it.
Thank you based fire proof hat. Orbs of Fire just no.
Is there any hell branch I should avoid, what one should I do next?
I really need to get rid of this stupid amulet and find another one.
Slime/abyss are the next in your difficulty climb.
Read up on what antaeus does. even if you're gonna just curare cheese him.Respect that shit
Know the max damage range of hellfire and stay aware of torment+hellfire combos.
I think a couple startscumming munchkins managed to blow the game out whenever they made it to their forge alive. It's been months since I read the threads involving skilled forgers though.
- now allows artefact rings to have bonuses to attack, evasion, and protection
- (since there are regular rings with these)
- removed the ability to add Grace to artefact cloaks
- (just a minor nerf to the extreme +Grace smiths)
- smithing gloves of treachery now correctly forces a <-1> penalty to strength
More like Ubbo
hah sweet. Yeah it's best for Sorcerers, for whom the setting-AC-to-0 is actually a +50 AC bonus, but it can be pretty nice for other builds at times
>Doesn't seem like much has changed for two years of development.
It's because the developer had his first child and has been super busy with that.
Welp. FoVM died. There are way too many poison immune fuckers in this game.
It literally took 1 hit and 1 retaliation.
I should have probably just went for the win.
Reading the wiki it seems like I needed high AC to tank his shots.
34 AC at antaeus with a bloody MiBe? Damn nigga, you dumb.
They really weren't kidding about changing many of the enemies in the game.
So far I'm counting around fifteen new monsters with a little under half being replacements of others.
Also, there's a wight unique and another unique dragon.
It depends on like a dozen things incl player skil land patience for retarded bullshit.. Pump venom and conj, use venom bolt and olgrebs once you have rpois to great effect. Poorly melee with some branded weapon at 1.0 delay and decent fighting so you actually hit. From then it's all floor drops and god choice. Veh/Sif will get you poison arrow so you can keep pumping magic and channeling to kill everything forever. bonus for haste. Oka/Chei bump up your melee with your venom being light support until you get PArrow Xom, yred, nem and others are wildcards that generally help you desperately flail through your fights. Doesn't hurt that shields are extremely cheap for you.
Regardless of whatever you want to do, you'll imp park and run up stairs/hatches then down othera LOT. Especially if you don't overinvest into melee. You'll want to pick up pretty much any magic you can that can actually damage undead, rpois, and demons with imb+battlesphere being the jackpot.
I'd hazard a guess on when you take 4d5 [element] damage per hit against something with sheathes, serpent has 3 sheathes by the way, and also when summoners summoning summoners that summon mana stormers
>Doesn't detect frequently by the time they show up
>not abandoning the floor vs hound summoners
It's not like they're super duper common or hard to avoid if you're exploring properly.
Different people draw the line at different quality of life changes against feature losses. I'm sure if pakellas makes it to stable there'll be a new crop of people that draw the line there for finalylbeing able to be a wand caster.
nah, there was lots of quality changes between .7 when i started and .16 , but i haven't found a single quality change between .16 and .18 (except shadow trap removal and maybe squarelos)
Mah nigga 2pka
shadow trap removal was a bad thing

they aren't any less trivial than they were before. just annoying garbage tier noobtrap monster that can suddenly kill you if you dont watch your screen when you fight a monster you've fought 100's of times beforehand when it did nothing but suddenly now it does. good design.
>Crazier randarts with a stat cap at 125
this would be decent if they hadn't changed the randart formula to basically add a shitton of negative stuff on every randart making them shit.
also they added new negative randart properties as well that outweight the new +'s multiple times especially with no clarity.
other changes were extremely minor and barely ever mattered.
edain is for when you know what you're doing. I guess you could learn on edain if you actually read the manual but race is essentialyl difficulty modes in Sil soif you want to limit your strategies then go ahead I guess.
I'd imagine later game when acidic and sometimes thundercloudsa are the only one that'll do any meaningful damage
Who considers it a noob trap lmao? The only ways I can see it considered as such is that you could potentially block off a possible escape route or reduce your positioning capability with dangerous clouds; thunder clouds also make a ton of noise and can wake up large amounts of enemies nearby; and clouds can potentially take longer to kill something dangerous than some other method of damage dealing. Still it's not a noob trap lmfao desu senpai
>extended doesnt exist.
You know, this is kind of a shitty attitude to adopt in Crawl.
Extended is still part of the game, the devs should either treat is as such and full balance with it in mind or cut it once and for all. The half in, half out mentality that has plagued peoples' perception of extended for years isn't doing the game as a whole any favors.
Carry blessing or holy chant. your AC is low and that'll help you out to use them in hard fights. Also stop by the armor place, every couple levels you can enchant your armor and artifacts higher.

The point is you can do it senpai. I worked a year and a half of full time hellmart nightshift while going to school for 18 credit hours and managed to bring my grades up, you just have to work beyond hard to do it.
If someone as weak-willed as me can do it, I know you can. I can't even get past Vaults with a spellcaster in dcss.
I remember some anon saying something about using scrolls of forest creation for the serpent fight. Something about negating his aura.
