In the life span of our planet there have only been a small handful of world wonders. The galaxys great comets show us theiir beauty up close only every few centuries... So it is a miracle on par to the great acts of saints and sages throughout history that we live in a world where Chameleon Twist 2 is available to anybody with a nintendo 64 gaming console.

I tried playing this again too. Everyone is pissed at all the changes but I cant tell the difference

its mostly the same but i'm sick of playing the game also, tbh. some of the new gods sound fun tho. i really liked the god of nothingness or whatever from a few versions back that was the last version i really played. used him to win a tournament random combo pick troll ice elementalist or something by sacraficing an arm and some literacy. but i gained the power to jump around AND shout at the vault 5 entrance, which made them all depressed and suicidal

my favorite part about orc is the loot is usually garbage and the exp is too! gently caress you! at least in elf 3 there's usually some good stuff and you get a poo poo load of exp for murkin elves

What's the proper way to play DCSS? I know there's webtiles or whatever, and you can download it, etc. Is there a definitive version or is it personal preference.

it doesn't matter. the tiles are fine and mostly look okay, and actually give u a bit more information than the terminal version, like a small minimap and some other stuff. i usually prefer to play online thru putty and ssh [the text version] tho because i know all the symbols already but i don't know what the tiles mean hehe. also webttiles is a little laggy sometimes in my experience, of course if u download it thats not a problem

theres a cat race u can pick thats a magical cat and in the tiles version u can choose from a bunch of cat tiles to represent your cat. my lone cat win in version .10 or .9 a long time ago was with a cat that looked like garfield. SO tiles has that over the text version

Playing online lets you encounter player ghosts and also keeps stats of your games.

Ghosts can't go up or down stairs, so use that to heal and kill the ghost for good XP.

Yeah generally the best plan around player ghosts is to get the gently caress out of there. Or banish them.

There's a few simple things you can do to improve quickly, namely make sure you fight in areas that have been explored and kite enemies towards them when you discover them; use O for movement as that will stop you as soon as you find an enemy; use exclusions on dangerous enemies (I think the command is Shift+X, then move the cursor over them and press X) and that makes sure you won't wander into their line of sight by mistake; make sure you're manually training skills in the way someone said earlier (first main damage source, then survivability is a good rule of thumb); and if you're in a dangerous situation make sure you take all the time you need and consider all options and moves carefully.

Some races and classes are much easier than others as well - Hill Orc or Gargoyle Berserker is a good straightforward combination and has the benefit of starting with a god so you don't need to worry about choosing one later on.


e: I find the game's difficulty curve is strange in that most of the time it's pretty easy with sudden extreme spikes that can arise very unexpectedly.
