>> No.20873899

So I know to invest in magic shops to at least rank 100 for fairly frequent potions of potential. And have done that.
But should I bother to bless them?
I don't have any blessed water on hand. And that holy well thing seems to be limited to once every other month.

Also, it was terrible loading into my old save and seeing how I was doing things. Like no elemental resistances equipped whatsoever, most potentials at 20-40%, not a single weapon proficiency above 30 at combat level 30 due to switching around and letting potentials fall to jack squat. By golly.
Much better start than dealing with early game again though.

Tender loving care,hero cheeses and big filling herbed meals of course anon! dont be silly

I invited all 8 gods to my castle home,closed them in a 3x3 space sorrounded by water tiles (so i could flee the instant my pet aggroed them),sent pet in and ran as fast as i can while the gods aggroed each other and abused the shit out of savescumming until i got the desired result of inner kumiromi dead as his weapon provides a huge CON boost,lulwy and ehekatl died as well during that setup thats a bonus

after that i bough a cabin so i could pick the dropped inner god weapons (dying in the process of course) and put them on my pet so she had a chance to 1v1 the others

finally bough a big castle deed again to have enough space and lured the remaining gods one by one,inner opatos weapon weapon was uber useful increasing her DPS despite the ragnarok trigger i just cheered and used heal kits on her when she was gonna lose

Vanilla Elona open sourced a long time ago. Should be easy to find that somewhere.
Elona+ sources are included with +Custom and +CustomG, at the very least. Along with this silly little image about compiling it.
Not sure about other forks.

There's also a Vanilla rewrite in progress, to C++ and Lua I think, for cross platform and eventual modding capabilities; ElonaFoobar. Though a guy last thread was having trouble compiling it, and I've only seen one clip of it running (Awkwardly), which was for Android.

I don't think it would work too well in 3D, honestly. Most of what gives it charm and makes it playable/moddable is how simple it is. The more complex it gets to make assets,

If you'd make it ONLY graphically 3D, kind of like Etrian Mystery Dungeon for a fair example, then it only benefits from looks, that's it.
Using sprites as usual for all characters is one option to make content creation still easy. But then there's even less of a point in going 3D in the first place.
Making the field automatically generated in 3D, like some modes of NotEye (IMAGE), is another option to make it easy for content creation. But again, that gives it even less point.
If you'd give it rotatable camera and require directional controls to approximate based on camera angle, that could easily introduce problems and make it kind of confusing.
If you wouldn't, then again, being 3D matters a lot less.
If you introduce multiple levels of height to give some gameplay relevance to 3D, then that's a lot more to consider, for content creation, random generation, graphical display, and of course how the game is played.

So like, the more you make it into 3D the harder things get to make, the more confusing things get to use, and the more problems are likely to occur.
For just a little looks.
Doesn't sound worth it to me. The novelty would wear off fairly quickly.

No problem. Although, if memory serves, Gravity Accel lets you float over traps even if you have the Gravity status, and that apparently isn't mentioned on the wiki. Not a big deal in most situations, but if you're exploring Awoken Nefia it can save your bacon on gravity floors.

Well like I said, the (IMAGE) example is just an automatic option option to try to mitigate the problem of content creation difficulty. So that you could still have the same amount of characters without a shit TON of work on each in modelling at the very least.
>Like if they attack an enemy they would do an attack animation and face or lookat the enemy while doing it.
Well that's even worse of an issue. Because then you have to animate everything on top of model creation. Then balance speed around that, so that it doesn't become horrifyingly slow and always disabled by users, thus a massive waste of time to even create.

Each type of enchantment is limited to appearing on specific equipment types, as set by *item_encInit. Ether resistance can only appear on back items, so a randart cloak or wing might have it. (And of course, vindale cloaks always come with ether resistance.)

Early on I'd just farm a lot of herbs and eat some of them as is while training cooking passively to 30. Works well enough because they do trait attributes normally, just not as crazy.
That way you're not struggling to keep gains up with your total levellups for a fair chunk of the early game.

Do either safe town quests or low level dungeons. I always pick up the riding skill early on because speed is the most important stat and riding is the only good way to raise it at low levels. You can buy horses in yowyn and better ones will unlock over time. Take the hypnotism feat asap (strings assassin is an ok alternative in plus) and use that to get around your poor initial accuracy. There's no need to rush lesimas, you won't be finishing it until you're much stronger. The best way to improve your fighting ability in low levels is with better equipment. You especially want to increase your PV (ie armor). Enchanting your equipment and changing your body armor's material are good ways to get a high PV score early on.

AP is very useful for all PCs and most pets. You don't need to worry about avoiding low level stuff though, you'll be raking in the AP once you beat Zeome.

Eventually you'll want everything you wear to be acidproof, but in the short term you can do two things to resolve 95% of the problem.

You have to know the field around you for that though. Otherwise you'll get sandwiched.

To get acidproof potions, the fastest way would probably be investing in magic shops. Particularly Lumiest in my experience, for whatever reason.
That's useful anyway regardless of build, for things like scrolls of flying and superior material, or potions of potential.

>> No.20887988

Yeah. The possible exception is if you convert a cloak into wings. Push x to examine an item's properties and it'll say "it floats you" near the bottom if it grants levitation.

Possibly fire or ice damage? Potions shatter from cold, and lots of things can burn. Always carry fireproof and coldproof blankets and prioritize fire, ice, and magic over other elemental resists.

>> No.20888020

>Always carry fireproof and coldproof blankets and prioritize fire
You can mostly forget about fire once you have great resistances, like at least Superb #####.
Just doing that Vesta dragon dungeons or whatever, the one around Derphy, will give gloves that are amazing for that and a corpse that increases intrinsic fire resistance rather than normal food stuff that would wear off on death. Should cover that almost completely, and it's easily doable around level 20 if you keep potentials up right.
After that you can keep some fireblankets on you for a bit, but once you reach the point where after several firemob dungeons worth of attacks don't drain a single charge, you're pretty much good.
Though by that point you'd probably have fireproof on all primary equipment.

How do you cure mutations? What happens if you get too many?

>> No.20888109

Regular mutations, both positive and negative, can all be cured with cure mutation potions. Mostly indiscriminately.
I prefer to avoid savescumming for things like that, so just blocking mutations outright with fairy/dunce hats is preferable to me.

I don't think there's a penalty for having too many normal mutations.
Though there certainly is a speed penalty for having too many limbs from the mutant race [F]eat. More than 13 of something, for sure. Not sure if that's extra limbs total, or extra limbs of one type.

Ether corruptions are another issue. [q]uaff down those cure corruption potions, however expensive they may seem. Leaving corruptions there, or using Ether equipment, let's it get worse. And it will bite you in the ass eventually.

I love G's SP reductions for things that I'd just num5 wait on. Like cooking and fishing. So much more convenient, less wasting of in game time.
It never made that much sense for SP usage of things not balanced around tight timing to be so high. Like, if you're safe enough to wait your SP back up to full then there's no point in making you do that.
I understand it was probably an anti-grind mechanic, to try and prevent players from stocking up and doing a bunch of cooking/fishing in a row without pause. So as to make those things into distractions and diversions spaced between other gameplay. But that's dumb as HELL, in my personal opinion.

What I really wish for, though, is for toggles for all these balance changes.
That way if someone disagrees with rebalances they could just disable them. Or so if I feel like playing a little fetishy for a bit I could turn back on thirst/pissing.
I'd also like a mode independent XP modifier, so as to get overdose or higher speed with excessive permadeath memes for a more classic roguelike experience. Or even just to skip extreme grinds if it ever gets to the point it feels like that.

Okay, so it does boot. And it just crashes without any relevant error message?

I believe that's about the time of the first save. So the first thing that comes to mind is folder permissions. Like it might not have permissions to write the save to the folder.

>Uncheck Read-only

PREFERABLY make sure it's not in Program Files while doing this.
It's generally recommended to make a dedicated C:\games\ or E:\games\ or similar folder for games, especially those made for WinXP and earlier. So as to avoid permissions issues without needing to run as admin.
In rare cases, not that I've ever seen it with Elona in particular at all, you may also need to Take Ownership of all relevant folders and files. Mostly for old programs that have their own installers designed for <=XP.

Running as admin is also a last ditch option. One that would avoid the need for this stuff, but is certainly a security hazard.

>Also i think it was "blocked" somehow. Since it came from another computer.
I'm not really sure what all that limits in particular. Might not even cause issues in some cases.
The main issue is file probably permissions, needing to be able to read/write/modify files in its folder.

Since XP had people running admin by default, that mostly allowed all files to modify everything, regardless of where they were, and programs were designed around that. Which isn't really a problem, if they have permissions for the folders they need to access.
The real cause of problems is that Program Files is limited to require admin permissions to modify anything there. The idea being that only executables and standard libraries are supposed to go there, while saves are supposed to go in AppData, ProgramData, or Documents. But that's terribly inconvenient and spreads programs' files all over the place, making backups a pain.

Glad to hear that worked though. Nice.

Apparently that getting set is an issue when using old versions of IE (<=8, no penis intended) and/or strict systemwide Internet Options. And it happened in some versions of Firefox between 40 and 52 too.

However, they are still quite helpful. It is indeed worthwhile to get herbs and make herb infused food.

you need the enchantments that grant specific immunities. having very high resistances in elements also grant immunity some of the time.

>> No.20899823

Yeah, I know. I haven't had much luck in finding equipment with those specific immunities. Outside of a few with drastic downside like attracting monsters, inhibiting growth, bringing about doom, etc. Same with equipment with inherent high resistances.
So what I can change right now is material, which can easily give up to ## in those elements, but not while also giving high DV/PV, requiring quite a tradeoff for safety there.
Does DV actually matter for special attacks at all, or only physical?

Also derp. I just realised I could change the material of my rings which don't give much/any DV/PV anyway. That's nice.

>> No.20899840

That's usable in the early game if you don't have anything better, but if you have or can get the Rankis then you should use that instead. In plus it loses hard to any living weapon. The massive damage to gods enchantment isn't worth caring about. The spell enhancement boost is good if you're a wizard.

It's more a matter of when you have enough extra attack equipment to get 8 hits and when you don't need the enchantments from the equipment anymore. Even without the multihit bonus martial arts will beat out any weapon, if you keep the tonfas forever you'll still be far from gimped.

PV, elemental resists, and status immunities are all absolutely necessary while DV is just kind of nice to have. You should basically never sacrifice any of those things for the sake of DV.

Not him, but going out of my way to grind offerings to gods would not be useful to me. Altars in cities (Palmia, Noyel afaik) tend to be unattached, thus you get a favor bonus for converting them. See an altar in a city? Make an offering then reduce it to ashes with fire wall. Panic/Challenge quest in the city? Make an offering and finish the quest. You'll organically max out favor in short order.

I've got a cooler and 4D pocket full of heavy corpses I can't use because I'm capped on favor.

>> No.20905264

Just get the pets/feats/items/weapons you want to have. Some are definitely more useful than others. Jure's pet is probably the best of the bunch. I think Ehekatl's feat and Kumiromi's treasure are both solid. Which god is best to stick with long-term for worship benefits depends on your character, but Kumiromi is very useful for pretty much any character in any version of the game.

Kumiromi is the best god in both + and OO. + for the QoL stamina shit and being the strongest early game god and easy to level. Less so in G since stamina was made to not suck actual literal penis in it.

How much easier is + than OO based fork/s?
What specifically makes it easier?

>> No.20906877

I found OO to be easier, if the difficulty is simply winning, as it both ends sooner and frontloads you with tons of power via the up to 100% bonus damage talents. The game was not balanced around these so they break it.
Its slower, more tedious (as an example, you can't just dump coins in your shop pet to raise its training like in +) and actually MORE pet bias (as its blessed food, closest thing it has to + blessed pots, are broken for pets and shit for you). But its not harder. Unless your goal is to grind post-game content, of which it has very little anyways, which is much slower because of its increased base pp cost, higher cap on costs, lower potential for PP invested (I remember reading it balances this by going down slower; it does not. It just looks like it does because in + you are higher more and it goes down faster when higher because you level faster; raise both to like 150, fight the same enemies, they go down at the same rate), blessed food only raisaing all stat potential for 2 of the gods, only doing if if you are actually hungry and sucking ass when it does and no stupid ap hyperscaling speed bullshit

>> No.20906919

Oh. So it's only harder in the endurance of tedium and time then. That makes sense.
I was reading an argument with a guy that insisted + is a casual easy mode fork and claimed that OO is a better more faithful continuance to his glorified vanilla. Which didn't exactly sound right.
But I haven't actually gotten much past ACT1 in + to give any input on the matter, and got curious.
>no stupid ap hyperscaling speed bullshit

Dunno about pets, I don't use them.

It effects enemies because the enemies in act 2 and on are balanced around you using this homogenizing ap bullshit. Which means the only statistical advantage with any real meaning is mana. HP and speed all reach the same easy ap cap anyways. So if you don't care about the few passives not able to be gained via equips (dim immune, mutant higher limb count, faster resource gathering), lich is straight up better than all other races statistically shortely into act 2

>Oh. So it's only harder in the endurance of tedium and time then. That makes sense.
Elona is a grind game in every incarnation. That's basically the only way it can be harder.

OO is a more faithful continuation of vanilla because it feels and functions more like vanilla in every way. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to you. AP can increase any pet's speed up to 800, which is fairly high but some pets start with more. The popular bells of termination start out with 2000, for example. But yes, AP means most pets have about the same potential and pets with unique abilities and traits, such as defenders and bells, tend to be better than pets with good stats.

In OO and oomsest your cargo and your cargo limit severely, undeniably affect the rogue boss encounter rate. If I remember right, in vanilla a higher cargo rate increased encounters and in omake variants it's cargo value instead. Haven't played plus in a while so I'm not sure there. Your cargo weight and capacity are both listed on your character sheet (press c).

Once you get to the point in the mining skill where you're not resting every few seconds it's pretty neat.
That's a lot easier to reach in +CG due to drastic reductions of SP costs for things that don't need balanced around turn count, so as to avoid the tedium of action->rest->action->rest gameplay. For better or worse.
I mostly did it long before switching to that version though. Like back around 1.50.1+C. It got less tedious there around about 80 mining, I think. While you could probably get away with 20-40 in +CG.

Supposedly luck mostly affects equipment quality rolls more than anything else. Which, if the difference is great enough, could make the entire early to middle game a lot easier by rolling more Miracle/Godly stuff, giving more chances they'll have useful benefits to go along with their stats.
So that's -potentially- quite useful until you unlock artifact fusion for armours and find decent living weapons, at least.
But if you don't enjoy mining shit out for its own sake I certainly wouldn't bother.

It's possible, and easy, to mod dialogue and graphics in even without recompiling anything. Then Custom and Vanilla, at least, are open source and reasonably editable to such a degree you could give it pretty much anything you want.

Obvious prostitution, bestiality, the fact that ANY pet can be married, benefits from sleeping with allies/pets that have high affinity, rubbing/squeezing to buff allies/pets, all of those things are true, but not explicitly erotic in any way.

Ah, that's the difference. I don't like changing my immediate playstyle mid-dungeon or limiting myself to what my pets can handle.
Soloing dungeons +20-50% my level (Or up to 2x my level once about level 50 due to silly scaling of skills versus total) using gear with proper resistances is feasible, and sometimes even easy as hell.
But going in with pets, even those that are +20% my level themselves, is a random off and on death sentence for them in general.
WITH giving them bunches of herbed food to eat and gems to sell. I can't trust going in any dungeon above my level with them.
>But as you see, I'm not very far into the game yet, and I'm new, so I imagine the pitfalls of this playstyle will bite me in the ass before too long.
It's more of a problem early on rather than later on.
Once you have enough shit to give to pets to keep their resistances fairly high it's all good. Though that gets a lot more difficult to reach the more pets you use.
Pretty sure at some point you can comfortably just gene engineer or artifact fuse the issue away. But I've never gotten that far while actually using pets.

She's not dead. If an adventurer "dies" they either stay at a hospital until they recover or they retire from adventuring.

When the game says an adventurer is at any location other than a city, they won't actually show up there. Omake Overhaul and its descendents change this so you can run into adventurers in dungeons and such.

It's good but oomsest is a better, later version of omake overhaul so grab that instead. There's a lot of room for reasonable disagreement as to whether plus or omake variants are better so I say try both.

Now your character gets thirsty and needs to drink potions and piss every so often.

Well, unless you're playing on overdose chances are you'll shove a lot of time into every save. It would be a shame to lose that.

Also, when updating versions I still keep all old versions, with saves and settings left alone, installed exactly where they were. Only installing the new one right next to it and copying over saves/settings. Though I really should name those folders to be more accurate, it's whatever.

I'd disagree, personally. The early game is painfully boring grind trying to get things to a state you can continue on without going back to towns for jobs for PP/potential constantly.

Really? Nothing else worth getting? No crit chance, no invokes, no other damage types? Maybe stamina drain? Just stacking one damage type seems so boring for a weapon that has so many options. Also I read on the wiki that you get diminishing returns from stacking the same enchants.
Or was that reply a "lol yeah it would be great if it was a completely different thing dumb noob" and it just went over my head? I am a dumb noob so help me out here.

>> No.20919748

Not the other guy but I believe it was genuinely good advice. To convert it to a lightsaber, you'll need a pot for fusion and do the Sharp/Hard equip update, for which you'll need a couple of stuff that you can find on the wiki along with the required skills. Also, few things have resistance to magic, and while you do get diminishing returns, it's still more magic damage. Although I would also include crit chance.
As for the invoke, I'm not quite sure you can get those on your weapon with level ups unless you initially rolled one into it. I could be wrong too.

>> No.20919907

a few threads back, an anon had either found the code to remove skill limits to go beyond 2000, or was looking for it. Does anyone remember where the code was in the source? I think line 29928 of gsource is the right line, but I'm not entirely sure.

I replaced the 0, 2000 in line 29928 with 0, 9999, but that didn't work. I know there are more lines like that after, but I can't figure out what they correspond to other than a few like the weapons skills, and unless I'm retarded looking for SKILL_ATTR, or even a specific attribute like SKILL_ATTR_SPD didn't show any line of code that would let me change the limit or entirely remove it.

>> No.20920033

Magic damage is just the easiest and safest bet to get more damage.
Lightning damage is good if you build around it via elemental scar/wet. Fire too but applying oil is awkward.
Resistances are great if you need them and you don't plan on using the weapon directly. This is probably the easiest way to get high resistances before artifiact infusion.
Skill bonuses are extremely good early on. Some people like to make living weapons for things like cooking specifically so they can get lots of high quality food early in the game, which is good for money and stats.
Specific attribute bonuses can be good if you're building around them. Obviously spell damage can be good if you're using magic, although there are better artifacts for it later in the game. If you're building around breath attacks then you'll definitely want to build bonus to breath attacks.
Bonus damage to enemy types might be useful, but I'm not 100% sure on the math to be honest. If you wanted to make a dedicated godslayer weapon it might be worth it. (Maybe people who like to bully gods might be able to give better input on this).
Crit chance and absolute pierce are potentially good, although it'd work better on a stat stick than your dedicated weapon. Absolute pierce only works on melee attacks, but if you aren't using a light saber which pierces anyways it might be worth it, although you'd have to dedicate to it hard. I might be wrong, but I believe 5000 pierce gives you a 100% chance to pierce on hit last time I checked? Stacking critical hit would mostly be good if you have accuracy problems.

>> No.20920193

Hmm, okay I did find out that line 29928 does work (I just forgot to rename the new compiled file) but the speed (And possibly other attributes) does not like to go above 2400. I had a bunch of blessed hermes blood and speed uppers that I wanted to use, but going above 2400 makes it go into the negatives, which brings my speed down to 10.

Magic or lightning elemental damage is the best option for raw DPS. Unless you lean on the Continuous Attacks action, since it doesn't do elemental damage.

Going into negatives is usually an overflow unless it's specifically coded in weirdness.

Blessed hermes is even more overpowered for pets, giving 20 each.

You've never heard of reset looping? It's literally been in the game since day one.

Most of the easiest places to abuse reset looping were in Act 1.

It doesn't work properly in Omake or Vanilla because your potential drops too quickly and you can't restore it, but in E+ it basically lets you turn any mode into Overdose.

>playing on overdose is as bad as room resetting

>> No.20921721

During the discussion on how reset looping could be used to break the game, several notable locations became first picks because of how easy they were.

The Graveyard was the easiest place in terms of location for money and speed while being the "least" broken. The Pyramid was the easiest place for skill growth because of guaranteed platinum drops and Bells could slaughter the entire map with minimal set up. With a little bit of work, Vernis ended up being the most broken because it was a zero risk herb grind.

At that point no one really cared whether reset looping was "legit" or not anymore, it was more of an experiment of which maps would end up being the most exploitable. To date there still aren't really any maps that match those in terms of ease and return. Arguably there's the desert run in Act 2 for completing the card quest, but that's really about it.

>> No.20921736

No one cares if you room reset, just as no one cares if you play on Overdose. It isn't that much different from starting as a Bell of Termination in Omake using custom race. It's a single player game, do what makes the game fun for you. It's not like we'll get Moon Gates to work again anyways.

We literally ran these experiments because after hundreds of hours and going through multiple characters, the "fun" in the game came from exploring what ways there were to break it or what stupid combinations could work based on ridiculous bs.
