Patch 1.0.5 Is Now Up

The Windows version of Dungeons of Dredmor has now been updated to patch 1.0.5. (OS X users: we’re having one last Lion Issue, so we are working hard to resolve this; you guys should have your patch either later today or tomorrow. Probably tomorrow.)

Let us know what you think in the comments. Also please remember that this is not intended to be the end-all and be-all of fixes; this simply addresses everything we got done. (I have another one hundred and thirty seven issues, of varying levels, in the bugtracker, so we’ll be addressing your favourite issues as soon as we can.)

Changelog below. We’re pretty sure we did some other stuff that we’re forgetting.

EDIT: There will also be a leaderboard wipe in a bit.

    Works fine with my old game. However, Brax looks suspiciously like a certain lich of ill fame… did he get a facelift?

  8. Preston says:

    Loaded a game where I was on Level 7 that I was breezing through because I stole a tier 10 weapon from a shop and, after the patch, things aren’t quite so breezy. Seems like the difficultly level was kicked up a notch as some monsters seem to be doing more damage and the fireball has obviously been nerfed a bit. Seems like I’m using twice to thrice the magic and about 1.5 to twice the health to do the same amount of damage. Crap…I died…

    I noticed there’s a mod folder in Dredmor folder, as well as icons for Airmagic, Animalslayer, Battlemage, Earthmagic, Firemagic (rather than Promethean Demonslayer, Mageslayer, Two-handed, and Veggieslayer. There’s also a good bit of info about some skills that have yet to be implemented. Can any of these things be verified as .6 content or is that far off content?

    • AdminDavid Baumgart says:

      These are all skills that were cut during development, some because they were boring (Earth Magic, Fire Magic, etc), some just for time/implementation issues.

      Some of these will appear in future content patches or expansion(s) but no hard plans have been made.

      { reply }
      • CJSimmons says:

        Ah, good to know.

        I think the biggest thing that I’m looking forward to are the mod tools, which will definitely extend the lifespan of the game. I’ve messed around a little with the tweak, skill, spell, and template xmls and can tell that this game has excellent mod potential. I think that’s what has kept me from going back to Terraria is their lack of mod tools.
        Great job so far!

    Good job on the update, I just started playing this game 2 weeks ago and have been hooked ever since. I am new to “Roguelike” games and I really like it. I was actually really wanting to be able to put self notes on the minimap so I could remember where stuff was but you took care of that, so thanks again.
    *Curious if you thought of adding some random Mini Bosses leading to Dredmor, maybe every 2 floors.
    *Do you plan on making graphical changes in the future? Possibly showing equiped items so we can admire our chainmail, robe, leather etc. same with weapons?
    *Using leap sometimes shows as a red square instead of yellow yet I can still leap in that position, is this intended?

      Oh and btw, awesome patch ofc! Started playing again now, I just realized that the laggy bloodsplatters annoyed me more than I was aware of …

      { reply }
    • Tools are weird, and it’s easier to make them non-splittable as opposed to making them stackable, from a code perspective. (This one’s on me.)

      Really, you just shouldn’t be allowed to stack tools. I’m on it for 1.0.6.

      { reply }
      • mr.ioes says:

        Zoos are still buggy ;(
        In 1.4 after changing the level etc. the counter wouldn’t drop. In 1.5, the first zoo I cleared (opened and closed the door and came back after a while, also went to back to lvl 1 once), the counter was totally gone. And I also didn’t see any sign of a reward.


        ps: gotta love the new “triple learn-a-new-craft”-rooms πŸ˜‰

    hi, i have to say that Psionics is now overpowered. your first spells just makes damage and stuns your opponents for 1 mana after a few levels. thats too strong and its too easy to kill monsters.

    Patch works quite well! I like the new changes.

    I think the game has gotten a little more well balanced, I seem to be able to survive for longer. Or maybe it’s just because I took such a long break.

    Still noticing that bug that causes loot to spawn inside object, though. Didn’t get to loot an apple on floor one. Very aggrevating.

    I would also think it necessary to add a tool-tip to the ‘digest’ button to tell us if there are any side-effects to using it.

  19. Quests or a quest broken with patch.

    Saved game had a quest to use an item on a shrine. After patch cannot use the item on the shrine to complete quest.

    Quest: Use Zoorho, the Poetry of Lutefisk on the Eyeball Shrine [Level 7]

    I’m assuming the problem is with the latest patch because I had no problems completing this type of quests prior to the patch. I can drop the item on adjacent squares, but cannot drop it on the shrine to complete quest.
    This might be limited to saved games. I started a new game to test and have only gotten quests to use an item for summoning a boss, which have worked, but not any quests to just use the item to complete the quest.

    This patch really fixes so many things, but I had an odd stacking issue. I had two fruity staffs (those really make my day) and when I sorted my inventory they stacked together. The one that was enchanted reverted to it’s default stats as well.

    i loaded my save game from 1.0.3 to 1.0.5

    now here are the bugs i found

    Brax-wrong image(image of dredmor); wrong description (description of dredmor; if you went inside of any shop of brax, even if you didnt pick up/buy/dont buy/touch something the time you got out your a stealer

    Dredmor-wrong image(image of robot monster); wrong description(description of robot monster)

    Game-occasionally crashes in some places of any maps

    Ending-no ending will happen if you kill the dredmor(robot) it will be lag or game crash


    anyway the updates was really good…
    nice one gaslamp team!
    more power!

    i already finish the game @ exactly lvl19 (lvl23 now) of my 4th char.
    because my 1,2,3 are all dead w/ permadeath on
    this game is one of the best classic rpg game w/ very nice BMGs

    • Typhin says:

      Had the same issue with Brax becoming Dredmor. I was already testing out the changes to shoplifting, so I didn’t realize there was a bug there. When he aggro’d, I was able to kill him surprisingly easy. Upon doing so, the game granted me credit for winning. Fanfare and ending screen and all.

    Don’t know if this has ever been brought up, but ive noticed if you dual wield a weapon you have skills for you get the bonuses twice, but if you hold two shields you dont get the shield bonuses twice.

    Great job on the patch! Though from reading through the comments it seems that older saves are supposed to work in this update? When the game updated it no longer showed my saves in the load list. 😐

    I noticed that objects can actually block stairways that lead down.

    In theory, it could make getting to the next level impossible … Or make the player end up getting stuck if he goes up? Haven’t tried that last part yet.

    I’m having trouble running the game fullscreen on a macbook pro OS X 10.5.8 The screen turns white and I hear the music but there’s no picture. Before the 1.0.5 patch it worked fine. It does run in windowed mode, but I really prefer fullscreen. I have tried the -opengl command line in steam, but that does not help. Is there anyone who can help me with this please? Besides that, great patch and great game! πŸ™‚

  32. June says:

    Hey, I was wondering if you could do a change to the scoring system within the game? Like separate columns or tabs for the different difficulty options available and the scores you achieved on those difficulty settings. Just something that probably should have been in from the beginning to be honest.
