Looking for OLD version (pre 0.14)

Postby Savannah on Thu Dec 19, 2013 9:12 am

I found Desktop Dungeons ages ago and loved it. Then my computer died and when I was re-downloading all my old programs, I found out that DD had been updated. I've had v0.21 for quite a while now, and I just don't like it as much -- I've had it on my computer without playing it for at least a year.

I really want the old version back. I've been looking for older versions and was able to find 0.14, but that doesn't seem to be the one I'm looking for. I don't remember the exact version number, unfortunately. I do know that it had gods but you couldn't get boons from the alters and it did not have the campaign option. (I don't think it had the gauntlet option, either, but I'm not sure.)

Is there any way to get even older versions than 0.14? Thanks!

Wow. All of those versions were nixed due to bugs... I'm not sure we really *want* to put any of those back out there again. What is it about the game then that you like more? Particularly overpowered classes?

I wish I knew exactly why I liked the old one and not the newer ones. I know there were a lot of little changes that contribute to it, but the main thing I can remember now is how I used to find the gods useful with a few minor drawbacks, whereas now I find most if not all of them actually detrimental no matter what.

Sorry to intrude, but are you talking about a difference between a very early alpha build and the current alpha build, or between an early alpha build and the current finished post-beta game?

It would have to be the alphas. I don't think anyone could in their right mind accurately describe "most if not all" of the current deities to be "actually detrimental no matter what." I couldn't even describe the alpha deities that way (although a couple, not most, did actually come close.)

"campaign option" obviously it's alpha.

I do believe it's early alpha vs. current alpha, yes.

I'm with OMN (should have gone with One More Eternal/Endless Nameless :p ) on this one; have a look at the http://www.qcfdesign.com/wiki/DesktopDungeons/index.php?title=Main_Page wiki for the beta/full release and I think you'll find the game to be quite balanced and fun. It's easier in the beginning and harder at the end too, which is also nice.

I would like to see at least some sort of report on what early versions were like.
