Title: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Steel Reserve on 09:37:22 PM 06/19/14
I didn't see this anywhere else on the forum, and I thought it would be useful to make a thread for people who want to pose questions and get answers from more seasoned players.

Since I've just started playing the new version of HR and am completely lost, I need to know one thing: what are the coordinates for the Fort Boilings Entrance?

 Hello,the ingame chat didn't seem friendly Or helpful  :(  How do I load a gun? Or can a vampire use a gun? & what about stray dogs? Can they be tamed or something?   ???
Thanks & hope you can help:)

Vampires cannot use guns. If you're a human the gun would have a reload button next to it. You would need to have the ammunition too. Stray dogs cannot be tamed as far as I know.

You can't tame the stray dogs, They were just added, so we don't know what they do.

Yes the machines attack you. They are NPCs. They consist of Armored Vehicles, Drones, or Helicopters.
Not sure if there are other varieties of Machine NPCs.

About the machines, can the Mantis Drones be harmed in any way? I keep trying to attack them but I always get an error message telling me I'm out of range.
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.

The Mantis Drones/helicopters are aerial NPC's. Only ranged weapons can reach them.

Sorry if I ask, but I think I've met a bug...
I've met another player recentely that hit me with a taser, inflicting me the "Dazed" status, but before he could have done more I've escaped.
The problem is, I have still the "Dazed" status, and it says me that I have still "10 actions" to do before it can expire. I've tried so to do normal actions, but it didn't work. Also I've tried to attack a NPC thinking the "actions" to do were maybe combat actions, but it didn't work anyway.
So, how can I let this state expire, since it says me that the "attack success rate" is reduced ? It's a bug, or have I do something else precise to expire it ?
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Animefan666 on 12:50:23 PM 08/26/14
Not sure. It doesn't usually last so long. Have you tried suicide? Death might cure you.
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Fluttermaster on 05:13:59 PM 08/26/14
No, I haven't still did that, but I anyway died while having still that status, being killed by a player, and it didn't experienced. So I don't think it may work :/

Edit : Okay, found out. That's completely nosense and I don't understand why that happened, but...
For some reason, looks like the problem was the Taser right in my inventory (that I use to stun NPCs).
I dropped it, and the state of "Dazed" disappeared suddently for some unknown reason ò_ò
Maybe the game files messed a bit reading "Taser" in my profile and so bugging all ? I don't know...
Still, that's really, really strange. Now I've acquired another one, but it doesn't give me again the state.
I don't know if it's a rare bug happened only to me, but still that was pretty annoying :/

I just started this game. I spawned in as a zombie and things have gone all right so far. But does anyone have any tips to play as a zombie? Do I just run around killing people or is there something else to do. I've also picked up things like soda cans and such along the way, but is it worthwhile to loot as a zombie? I know it might be if you want to turn back into a human, but I like the idea of being a zombie. Any help is appreciated!
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: WakaWa on 08:51:53 PM 12/12/14
I don't know too much about playing as a zombie. But if you intend to stay as one, the skill Drop Dead is very useful, it lets you play dead as a corpse so people think your dead unless they actually search that given area/tile.

When searching for zombies to kill, it's tricked me dozens of times in the past!

Hey!  I've just joined the game, after hunting around a bit for a good Urban Dead replacement.  My basic question is, how active is this game?  I don't see a lot of new forum posts, but OTOH, many of the other similar browser-based games like this show "Last Posts" in 2013...  It's weird, it seems as if there's been a great dying-off of audience for these types of games, but I love them because they're perfect for my limited amounts of playing time.  So I guess my simple question is, is this still active?  Or will I be wandering a ghost town?
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Slimebeast on 12:29:04 AM 03/09/15
The game is pretty dead, TBH. I think we have like 20 players on today.

The text-oriented "BBG" (browser-based game) era came and went like WHOA.

That's weird, you'd think the appeal of this sort of game would be pretty timeless.  They're like the old text adventure games, but with other people.  Do you know what people moved on to play?  Was there like a mass migration to graphical browser zombie games or something?
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Mammon on 01:10:00 AM 03/09/15
Well first of all the game was shut down for a while so I'm sure that there are people who used to play that just never came back.

Secondly, there have been several assholes that drive people away.

Plus it probably just gets boring.

Post by: Dick Datson on 08:54:48 AM 03/09/15
It definitely is kind of dead, but it's still fun for me. It's nothing like the old days when there were literally 40-70 people in a fort, hiding or active, fighting off waves of zombies and wild tk'ing humans. I disappeared for a year or so when the game was offline. There's a million reasons people left, but I came back and keep playing because it's an awesome game, plus, Slimebeast is a crusty ol man and good for entertainment too. I think we can manage someday to get a larger active player base again.

I know, it's a bummer.  I recently started playing Quarantine 2019 and it was the same thing - "The crowd had already left".  It's more active than this seems to be but the rules there are pretty broken, IMO, so our gaming group didn't play there long.  Thus far in wandering the city, I think I've found one other actual live player, up in Dobwood.  It's like a city version of Shartak.   :(  I guess I will wander around for a while, just to see.  Our gaming group is about 6-9 people and they'll all sign up if it seems like fun.  We're really looking to find something similar that's still really active, though.

Question about electric fences;

They include a car battery in their making, but do they ever run out of juice and turn into normal chain link? If not, can they be shorted out to render them an inconvenience instead of a hazard?

I'm asking because the environment is becoming littered with them and as a human I don't want to die while trying for some item I need.

Ok, a strange thing just happened, I assume it's a glitch.
I was Innocencely strolling around the fort, totally not killing other players,
then whilst playing dead, I was suddenly not in the fort. I had been moved a ton of squares south.
I had been in the bottom right square of the fort, then moved to the middle right square, played dead, then 'Poof' I was teleported.

Anyone else have this..... experience before? I was on a roll too, uh, a not killing roll.
(yes it was a kill streak, Best ive done yet).

Post by: Someonewithapen on 04:29:28 AM 05/18/16
Chances are, your 'corpse' was dumped out of the fort to make room from the flat screen, or something. It's usually common courtesy to kick the dead out to the street from the fort, so hiding as a corpse in there isn't the best idea.

Following with a question for our lovely codemaster. What's the limitations on the custom weapon donation option?
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: First World on 07:29:29 AM 05/18/16
Perhaps you have trouble understanding English, maybe you went to work in the mines, rather than going to school. Far more likely is that you did not bother to read what I wrote. I was moved 20 or so squares in one go, whilst attempting to play dead.
I also managed to replicate it.. sort of. I would tell you exactly how I did it but Im sure you stopped reading after the first line.
Thank you for your oh so helpful feedback.
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Mammon on 12:37:40 PM 05/18/16
The thing is, other than moving, I can only think of three other things that will actually move you: using a "warp" such as the sewer entrance/exit, using Drag as a zombie, or being dumped as a corpse. Ah, and the "Go to Serling" button, but that should only appear in one of the old areas.

As for custom weapons, I dunno, ye olde Slime is the one who does that. From what I understand, you can just take the stats of whatever weapon you want (that you actually have) and rename it to what you want and what you want it to show when you use it.

Even though I don't mind just losing 2 kills on the streak, bloodlust is kinda OP on itself.
I always assumed hanging is losing all the bloodlust. That seems fair in my opinion even though I am gonna hate myself for saying that.

Can anyone explain how grenade launchers work? I was under the impression they have a 30% chance to hit everyone on the tile individually.

Recently I tried using them on maybe 13-16 alts all on the same tile and they seemed to only hit the character i was targeting.

Although when i tested it with another player and fort NPCs it hit all the NPCs and the player who i had added to enemies. Does it only work for NPCs?

Post by: Mammon on 12:52:33 AM 03/27/17
I dunno, I wrote that code years ago now, it's probably bugged.

tbf I didn't think anybody would ever figure out you could hit more than one target with certain weapons.
Title: Re: Q&A: Get answers from other players, ect.
Post by: Don Durk on 12:57:20 AM 03/27/17
I thought there must be an upside to grenade launchers, they're hard to get and difficult to manage so i started stuffing around with them. I was saving a lot for a situation like this hopefully to take some alts by surprise.

Doesn't really matter i guess but it would be cool if it worked.

Also crossbows are cool, thanks for that :)

Post by: Mammon on 01:47:44 AM 03/27/17
