Re: Experience and level depth

In the original (and CSBWin and DSB), each level could be assigned an experience multiplier. In DM, it is true that the further down you went, the higher the multiplier got. I think it went from 1 (Hall of Champions) to 7 (Dragon level), so you would get 7 times as many experience points down there....

Re: What do you like/dislike about DM2 compared to original

@Huan: For CSBWin, I recommend Towers of Chaos. For RTC, I recommend Surgical Strike (requires a specific version of RTC, I think it's 0.37 or 0.38) or Sukumvit's Labyrinth. I'd like to point out Doom Blade as well, but since that is my creation, I can't objectively compare it to the works of others...

Re: Reincarnation vs. importation

The difficulty also depends on which engine you play. With original CSB, CSBWin or DSB, it shouldn't actually be all that hard since you gain levels like crazy at the very beginning due to the high experience multiplier in all of CSB. I think I gained something like 7 or 8 levels in the starting roo...

I agree with Sophia, too, she said far better what I was trying to express.

Yeah, Doom Blade is of the "spread out" variety, too. The outdoor scenario is pretty huge, so the different caves etc. are spread out all over the place. Take a look at the text file if you'd like to see what I mean. For your dungeon, I suggest teleporters, too. The player won't notice, and it will ...

My Doom Blade dungeon uses 75 x 98 levels, and I can only confirm what Chaos_Shaman wrote: It's very painful editing levels of this size since you can't really see anything when pointing at targets of triggers.

Yes terkio, I've seen that; maybe I'll steal it. ;) After all, my RTC dungeon Doom Blade allowed you to create friendly monsters, carried around in Pokeballs. In DSB, I could actually catch them again if I don't need them anymore, as DSB's test dungeon shows. Hmm... the ideas are starting to flow.

Hopefully I will find some more time to write an adequate review. Just wanted to say thanks for a very innovative and funny dungeon! I greatly enjoyed this.
