First you must become insane.

>>224231418
Look at Implo's video series. Alternatively, stop trying to play MuMo, it's hopeless and pointless. The only person who's beaten it 3 times (and still not beaten it halal) is an insane pony-posting furry tranny, the other 2 beat it in short amounts of time due to a lot of skill with roguelikes and quickly fucked off

The game feels a lot harder now, or maybe I'm just unlucky. Never gained insanity so fast before, and the dungeon feels a lot bigger. The game fel;t fine as it was before, sans the overabundance of invisible stalkers (seriously why). Not sure how I feel about this. Might just play the old version

I never played the old stable version of IA myself, so I don't know about that.
I prefer the look of the newer GUI, but a number for the ammo is definitely needed somewhere.

>>224244473
Nope. Insanity worked well in old IA to propel me forward. Now I'm being punished for not being lucky and finding stairs.

>>224244473
What version of old IA are you referring to? Because when I played like 19.1 or before that the insanity was exactly like you described like hunger system in DCSS and after my recommendation to harden it it started to feel good exactly like a propeller. Well maybe he hardened it it even greater, haven't played the latest builds
>>
>>224248293
19.2. I find it to work fine. Some floors are 'easy' for shock, others are straining, others are /very/ straining. I never felt the shock system was too lenient, it's just that some levels spawn easier to navigate, and with less threats that impede you. Can't continue this conversation - have to sleep.

No wonder people play nothing but DCSS. What would you rather do, play a game in which you fight snapjaws for 90% of the game, or play a game that actually takes monster variety seriously like DCSS.

ToME is no longer a band, it's transcended the definition of band to become the most complete, non-schizophrenically-designed, non removal-oriented and well polished roguelike out there. It doesn't rely on outdated hack or band philosophy but has its own school of thought. Still, no arguments about Crawl's hordes of uninteresting popcorn, I see how it is

It *is* grindy garbage though in most cases with otab popcorn (in larger packs than in DCSS), tome combat can be "interesting" when it comes to serious fights even though it generally boils down to "apply stun somehow, make sure that the player isn't stunned and then juggle cooldowns".
Darkgod still hasn't revamped the early game or even tried to add some variety to any playthrough, every character that wants to win should be doing every floor of every available dungeon always. This together with limited monster pools in the dungeons because THEMATIC EXPERIENCE BTW means that you will be having the same experience everytime.
If this is just baitposting to usher in another era of tomeposting then I guess (You) got me

I don't find tome's popcorn too tedious or otherwise problematic, but that could be because I over-commit to AOE on anything other than tough melee classes, then I find myself struggling on the final bosses.

Invisible stalker noooooo

Dead. I'm liking everything in this game except invisible stalkers. Too difficult to counter at the depth they occur. Maybe rogues are just particularly fucked by them, though.

are there any roguelikes without inventory management?
in a lot of roguelikes you can become as strong as gods but carrying 20 items is just too much
>>
>>224317753
If you're having so much trouble with invisible enemies why not try the occultist variant with the awareness/revealing spells? Would the feat that auto-reveals all monsters within 3 tiles help?
>>
>>224319906
Elona does have an inventory limit, but it's way bigger than that of any other roguelike I can think of. And anything you can't fit, you can just store in your home.
>>
>>224320109
Because I specifically like running rogues. Occultists are okay, but I like the rogue playstyle. Revealing them within 3 squares would help, but it sounds liek a massive investment for a single (very fucking annoying) enemy.

>>224345507
WINS

100 points for a player's first win. (Since winning is kind of the goal.)

50 points for a player winning two characters of different species and backgrounds at some point during the tourney.
RUNES

24/N points (rounded up) each time you find a type of rune for the Nth time. (So the first silver rune you find is worth 24 points, the second silver rune is worth 12 points, the third silver rune is worth 8 points, and so on.)
GODS

10 points the first time you reach full (******) piety with each god without having worshipped any other god first that game.
BRANCHES

5 points the first time you enter each branch or portal vault or reach the end of a multi-level branch.
UNIQUES

5 points the first time you kill each unique.

50-20-10 points for the players with the most distinct uniques killed; ties broken by who gets that number first.
HIGH SCORES

5 points per high score in a species/background combination (HuFi, not just Hu).

5 additional points for each high score in a species/background combination that is attained by a win.

20 points per high score in a species.

10 points per high score in a background.
>>
>>224345507
Races/classes/gods that are easy to win will give you a lower amount of points,for example Minotaurs are at 7 points per win right now

how am I supposed to autistically fuss over my inventory when I can't even see it RRRREEEEEEEE

Also holy shit they removed all difficulty from the early game, unless these slow frogs are somehow OP which I doubt. Also when do the banner things get awarded? I've cleared Orc and never entered Lair, that's a banner, right?

Does anyone know any ways of getting games like Dungeon crawl stone soup & other free PC roguelikes to run on Retropie? Like via an emulator or DOS or something?

Newfag here, although fortunately ASCII doesn't intimidate me anymore because I've played a lot of Dwarf Fortress.

Just installed DCSS, and I noticed that my terminal emulator sometimes lags a bit when playing. As in, I'll press a movement key and sometimes there will be a delay for the action on screen. Is this normal or is it something wrong on my end?
