Re: MOM Sound

Just to update. I use Dos Box and I have no problems with sound. This program is the surefire way to get MOM with sound in all its glory. Check it out if you don't already use it.

Re: Poison & Spell Save

Poison is generally very useful, although I've upped the effects in 2.0. Yeah, the spell save is broken, but I don't find it too much of an issue. Poison is an early-game power for the most part...

Re: To all impossible mode players

To win at impossible consistently - large land mass, that is - you need to know all the tricks in the book, and be very attentive to your play. [I'm ignoring any of the easy 11 book strategies]. This means, rather than willing to lose an unwinnable battle you run around and try to flee the AI until ...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Just thought I'd chime in. Been playing 2.0 a lot recently. I noticed a few things: 1. Earth Gate does not allow teleportation across planes. I don't think this is a bug, but a feature of the spell that I wasn't aware of and the help text should be modified accordingly. 2. Nature is still too weak, ...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Interesting points. There is a whole other thread somewhere (on another site) in which some users thought Klackons were way too powerful. I disagreed for the reasons you mention. Getting up to stage beetles is tough on a difficult setting -- there's little in the interim that can hold you over. I th...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

That's a fair point. However, if you found Shadow Demons, Wraiths, Death Knights, Collosus, Behemoth (etc).. all spells that are lower in the spell book than Efreet.. you would have had the same success. I don't think Efreet are overpowered. And yes, I would prefer Great Drakes.. but the difference ...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Rjak is probably trying to dispel Wind Mastery.. not Nagas. Let me know if he's ever successful.

Yikes. That's a major bug. I haven't experienced that. I'll have to look at that. Definite point to keep in mind for 2.1...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

I didn't change the 11 book set up because, well, I didn't know how to. Now I do. I just haven't gotten around to implementing those changes.

Glad you found it enjoyable to play.

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Contagion is useful against units with many figures. Warp lightning is effective against all units. In some cases, yeah, contagion is the better choice.. but Warp Lightning is typically the better spell, given how late in the game you typically get rare spells. Likewise with Doom Bolt. Contagion is ...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

RE: Chill Touch. It cost only 12 points. A lot of spells you can dump 12 mana into (fire ball, lightning bolt, to name a couple) that will do this amount or less. This is probably most useful against a big creature to finish it off, or a multi-figure 1 hit point unit (like slingers). Of course, it's...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Great comments! Great questions! Orcs still feel weak as a starter race even with the fast growth. A lot of this stems from Orcs not having a good mid-level unit (like pikemen, horsebowmen, etc), to help them out in the early-mid game. Orcs are cheap, grow fast, and are decent in combat. Orc Halberd...

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

(and the AI really does LOVE Life Drain!)
Life Drain should not be in the 2.0 version. But I agree, in 1.31 the AI used it all the time (part of the reason why I got rid of it).

Re: MOM 2.0 Upload

Thanks for answering my questions in that first set. btw, have you or anyone else seen the AI cast Chill Touch or Contagion? I don't remember to be honest. I know from experience that other spells I added -- destruction, acid fog -- are used by the AI, and for these I changed the two flags in the s...
