Alpha 25

Quote
By popular demand, the Cannibal is now a playable character. For the first time ever in Streets of Rogue, you can enjoy the perks of eating dead bodies. Rejoice. I've also added a bunch of fixes and changes to the Park area. Expect more in the future. But for now.....

....For the next couple of updates, I'll be switching gears to straight-up bug-fixing. Over the past couple of months since the game was released into Early Access, I've been primarily focused on addressing major issues and adding additional content. However, players have been doing an excellent job of reporting bugs to me -- so good, in fact, that if you were to print out my bug list, it would stretch across the United States and back 3 times. That is a lie. But it's still pretty huge.

No longer possible to teleport directly next to chests in the middle of hedge mazes, or other objects in the middle of outdoor “buildings” for that matter
NPC vision is blocked by Boulders and Trees
Trash Cans can no longer spawn in front of Doors and Windows (thanks to the 300 people who notified me about this)

Fixed collider size on small boulders

Bear Trap does 15 damage instead of 20

v0.20
Quote
We’re toadally pleased to announce the release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup 0.20: “Scarf Our Wanderful Fried Frogs”! 0.20 features a new species, some new items and spells, dungeon updates, and many other additions, streamlinings, and general improvements to the game.

0.20′s highlights include:

Characters: Barachim have been added, a new species that moves slowly but has good aptitudes, a powerful Hop ability, and can see one tile more than other species. Ogres have had their aptitudes and stats reworked, allowing them to be more proficient spell-casters and not just melee brutes, and mummies have a much higher spell-casting aptitude.
Spells: Two new spells have been added: Ignition, a high level Fire Magic spell that drops a weakened Fireball on every monster in view, leaving the player and their allies unaffected, and Poisonous Vapours, a Poison/Air spell in the Venom Mage starting book the creates a very short-lived poisonous cloud on a single monster.
Items: Scarves have been added, which are auxiliary armour for the cloak slot that has 0 AC and can’t be enchanted, but have special powerful egos like Repel Missiles, Cloud Immunity, Resistance (rF+ & rC+), and Spirit Shield. Mutation potions are now the only mutation-changing potion, and each quaff cures multiple existing mutations and grants several new ones. Additionally, spells formerly found on rods have been moved to wands of clouds and scattershot and the new rod of lightning XP evocable, and other wands have had their ranges and effects adjusted.
Dungeon: Many new dangerous vaults have been added, including an epic level-wide Depths vault as well as tricky loot vaults using the new one-way transporter dungeon feature. The Tomb of Ancients now features more dangerous one-way stairs that don’t allow easy, immediate return, and the treasure walls of the Slime Pits now always breach when the Royal Jelly dies.
Interface: A new noise meter now shows the relative loudness of each action, and in console mode this can be replaced by a bar showing the glyph of each equipped item. Stash searches now exclude distant duplicate matches of vanilla weapons, armour and ammo by default. Finally, the mouse can now be used in WebTiles by default and the species selection menu is reworked to have groupings in “simple”, “intermediate”, and “advanced” categories.

Highlights
----------
* New species: Barachim
* New spells: Poisonous Vapours and Ignition
* New scarf items: Armour for the cloak slot with new egos
* New evocations: Wands and an evocable based on spells formerly found on rods

Branches, Environment
---------------------
* The Slime Pits treasure vault walls are breached when the Royal Jelly dies.
* Web traps created in play (by e.g. jumping spiders) are destroyed on
  escape.
* The Tomb of Ancients now has one-way escape hatches with return hatches
  nearby instead of stairs.
* New transporter dungeon feature: a one-way portal to elsewhere on the level.
  Currently used in a number of new loot vaults.

Character
---------
* New species: Barachim, with an powerful innate Hop ability and good
  aptitudes balanced by slow movement and an increased base LOS radius.
* Ogre aptitudes have been adjusted, trading M&F skill for spells.
* Mummies' spellcasting aptitude has been increased to +2, from -1.
* Deep dwarves have an innate ability that heals them and has a chance of
  permanently reducing their MP. Their old recharge ability has been removed.
* Loud noises no longer break mesmerization or fear.
* Various 'badform' (e.g. wispform) special cases have been removed.
* Several abilities that triggered exhaustion now have their own cooldown timers.
* Removed:
  - High elves.
  - Mottled draconians.
  - Vestigial Lava Orcs/Djinni. Saves will load, but (after a prompt) will be
    converted to Hill Orcs/Vinestalkers.

Gods

Interface
---------
* The species selection menu has been reworked to have a more useful
  conceptual organization, with species grouped into "simple", "intermediate",
  and "advanced" categories.
* Noise from the last turn is displayed in the top-right, replacing gold.
  (Gold can still be seen with % and $.)
* Terminal colors now work properly on a wider range of terminals by default.
  However, as a consequence the default background map color is dark blue.
  To get dark grey, depending on your terminal you can set
  `bold_brightens_foreground=true` or `allow_extended_colours=true` in
  your rc file.
* New equip_bar option that replaces the noise display with a display of the
  glyphs of your equipped items (console only).
* Monsters' melee attacks, including estimates of potential damage, are
  now included in their descriptions.
* The player's odds of succeeding with melee confusion attacks is displayed.
* auto_butcher can be configured to trigger on different hunger levels.
* Stash searches now hide distant duplicate matches of more vanilla
  weapons, armour, and ammo by default. Searches results are now first
  ordered by items' descriptive names, rather than by the whole string
  including determiners.
* Red draining is now divided into red and magenta; magenta is the worst.
* The mouse can be used in webtiles (now enabled by default, previously a
  secret option).
* Local versions have much-improved support for custom sounds; see
  https://github.com/crawl/crawl/commit/4270d38ebf63 for details.

  - The Ratskin Cloak's stats have been tweaked, and it can now summon rats.
  - Amulet of Bloodlust: Slay+6 (was +3), MR++ (was MR+).

v0.9.9  A big step forward!  8)

    keypress buffer of size one implemented. Only the last keypress survives.
    new command line option --socrates-daimon. Enables cheat commands; cf the RS Revived Manual.
    new command line option --PC. Cf. the RS Revived manual for details.
    Savefile format has been broken
    Vintage games no longer overwrite options that are forced (the forcing is handled elsewhere)
    PC zombies are on the same skill upgrade options as NPCs.
    hours until needing to sleep is correctly reported (will not jump around at sunrise/sunset)
    Waiting now guarantees maximum realistic energy rating on the next turn.
    You may stop running even if too tired to run.

AI overhaul includes but is not limited to
* Followers should have far less difficulty finding their leader now.
* The police are learning what organized force means.
** They now can sweep the districts (cheating eidetic memory, but mostly not using the exact location of unsighted z). This includes limited cross-map pathfinding, but it does account for non-vintage mode sewers being unclearable.
*** CHAR building codes have requirements on the police accessibility of residential basements. You plausibly have three to four game hours to get any survivalist grenades before the police do.
**** There were RNG side effects. If you use a seed from 0.9.8
***** The overall map layout is the same.
***** All items should be where they were. Random quantities are expected to be different.
***** A noticeable minority of livings will have different name/gender.
***** The type of z of the day-zero cold start are completely inconsistent. Positions are consistent.
** If you have an active police radio, the chatter may be informative.
** Threat tracking and newly interesting locations to see have transparent overlays for police. The minimap also reports on these, with inconsistent color coding to the overlays.

v1.10

Quote
After the release of the Ripley Run DLC quite a few player reported crashes and memory issues. So this week we scrambled to make sure these got fixed as soon as possible. We've already been testing out some solutions in the unstable branch over the last couple of days, and from what we hear most issues were solved. That alone would justify a major update; but we also managed to address some balance issues: mostly concerning the combat dynamics and stealth.

Combat Dynamics
From the comments here and elsewhere we noticed that melee combat was still something of an issue. The swinging attack was still difficult to time right, and attacks by enemies were hard to avoid.

To solve these issues, we've changed the swing attack so that you first hold your weapon to the side and then swing and step forward. Enemies do this also, giving a chance to dodge their attacks. You can also see when an enemy is about to lunge forward with a spear or short sword.

This is quite a big change to the fighting dynamics, and it might take some getting used to as the timing is slightly different. But overall we are pretty confident it is a big improvement and we expect you'll get the hang of it quickly. We'll be monitoring the forum in case you feel otherwise.

Stealth
There have been two changes to stealth. First of all, when you are in stealth mope you are no longer slowed down, as it sometimes was hard to control, and the lack of control could make it feel a little sluggish. On the other hand, enemies have a better chance of spotting you when you are hidden, especially if they have seen you just before, or when they have a keen sense of smell.

Other changes were also made. Check the complete overview below:

New Features
- Changes swinging weapon dynamics.
- You can see when an enemy is about to swing or lunge.
- Adds a couple of visual indicators of AI State.
- You can combine a staff of fire ball and a staff of lightning to make a staff of switching.
- When you reload a game it starts paused.
- You can grab torches from walls by using tools.
- You can coat weapons in oil.

Game Balance
- Enemies have a better chance to finding you while hidden if they recently spotted you.
- Sneaking no longer reduces your speed.
- Daggers and potions no longer knock back big creatures such as trolls as much.
- Boiled Leather stops 50% of the blows from the front.
- Increase knock-back on melee weapons (and stabbing weapons in particular).
- The Lounge Lizard's lightning spells deal 10 damage.
- The Marine Magus marine missiles deal 8 damage.
- Praying works for destructible walls, one-way teleporters, and disabled teleporters.
- Eggs wake up if you bump into them.

Performance
- Improves ray-tracing (better performance near multiple light sources).
- Less memory intensive game log.

Bug Fixes
- Fixes generator issue that caused memory leak like behavior.
- Fixes issues with the Crackling and Thorough achievements in the Ripley Run.
- Falling down in a time trial no longer caused problems.
- Fixes issue with count jade cat puzzle.

To all new players that joined us the recent sale: please let us know what you think about the game in general and these updates in particular. And to all players that have been around for longer, you knew already that any type of feedback is appreciated by us, so you didn't need to be reminded, did you?

The tactical Roguelike by Thom Robertson.

A roguelike that lets you play as a monk, entering dungeon after dungeon, seeking to destroy the ultimate evil.  As you adventure, you’ll collect magic scrolls, and lots of gold, which you can take back to the temple and trade for skill training.

Designers note:

As I studied the development scene of roguelikes, I noticed several gameplay features were (apparently) out of favor. One was a town and shops. Another was scumming and grinding. A third was simple bump-to-attack mechanics.

Feeling a bit contrarian, I set out to embrace these gameplay features. My larger intent was to streamline the roguelike UI, and provide a fast, slick game, that still provided the depth of gameplay that a roguelike requires.

So that’s my base feature list:

    Town and shops, so things can be bought and sold. Shop inventories change, but expensive things can be put on lay-away (held in the shop, in exchange for a down-payment)
    Each dungeon is “Cast” from a scroll, and exists only while the player is inside. Players can control what “level” of dungeon they enter.
    Ranged attacks, especially for players, are rare or non-existant. Instead buff items and up-gradable combat skills provide the combat complexity.
    A unified GUI, which tries to be all things to all players. For the classic player, ASCII mode and full keyboard support. For the modern player, an art-tile mode and mouse-able (and touch-able) GUI.

Intended feature list
    imgui and manager
    Works w keyboard or mouse easily
    Map/unit/object simulation
    Speed time unit as floats
    Sparse array map
    Associated pos class that contains much of the map functionality
    Map unit render
    –ASCII mode
    –Tiled graphics mode
    Event text overlay/window
    Inventory window
    General blocking dialog system
    Blocking action system for drawing projectiles and such
    Scrolls, do something, one shot
    Skills, upgrade able
    Store system and ui
    Town system and ui
    Gold economy
    Save/load game
    Game history record manager
    Web repository of high scores and wins

skill potential list
stun
slow
DOT (fire, poison)
confuse
fear (run away)
knockback
dodge (make attacker miss)
reduce damage taken
hit multiple attackers at once
double-attack
hit and retreat
double-damage
revenge hit
throw opponent

v1.0.12

Quote
(savegame compatible with previous version)

    Bug Fixes
        Fixed a bug causing the Animated and Noatun's Inventory buffs to not have a status effect icon until the game is reloaded.
        Fixed a bug which was preventing most potion related status effects from showing the appropriate icon.
        Magic arrow was mistakenly labeled "Magic Missile", which is in fact the name of a later, different ability. This has now been fixed.
        When using an item with an innate mastery as well as the relevant mastery ability the game was only giving the player one roll against that mastery instead of two. This has been fixed.
    Environment
        Certain gods now appreciate certain potions.
        Copper chests on the 1st tutorial floor are now scaled and will give poorer loot.
        Cratefish per crate increased.
        Number of crates decreased.
    GUI
        Empty drop down combo boxes in the forms and equipment menu now instruct the player to click them to select forms or abilities.
        Medium and large damage fonts now have a high contrast version.
        Message telling the player cutscenes can be skipped with the escape key now lasts twice as long.
    Items
        Bone Armor now clarifies you must have the Reanimate ability equipped to benefit from its bonus.
        Multipurpose jewelry now counts as 'Misc accessory' for the purposes of statistics.
        Skin boots, swamp boots and gore boots now count as their respective boot types for mastery purposes.
        Sorceror's Codex now says 'magic missiles and arrows' to clarify it applies to both the Magic Missile and Magic Arrow abilities.
    Miscellaneous
        Added -novsync command line option to force disable vsync from the command line before the game starts.

v1.0.10

Version 1.0.10 is out now, with a fix for persistent stutter/frameskip on rare system configurations related to saving the player's statistics.

Changes in v1.0.10:
(savegame compatible with previous version)

    Bug Fixes
        (Hopefully) fixed a bug causing the chimera to not flicker dramatically upon death.
        Fixed a bug which could cause menus to be open while dying causing them to be visible on death cards.
        Fixed a bug which was causing the tiles moved statistic to be incorrectly calculated.
        Fixed an issue where naming your death card more than once would not stick.
    General
        Added '-nosave' and '-nostats' command line options.
        If the name in the name field for your death card does not match the card's current name when you save or share the card, the name will be updated.
        Statistics are now saved in a background thread unless '-nothreadsave' command line option is used. This fixes a stutter that could be experienced on rare system configurations.
        The game now highlights the tile your mouse is over with a glowing border. This can be disabled in the controls section of the options menu by unchecking "Highlight mouse tile".
