God this game is so fucking rage inducing I nearly destroyed my mouse just playing it. Fucking christ this game makes SMB look EASY. What the FUCK
The key to the game is relaxing.
Thrashing about swinging your weapon at 20 million miles per hour all the time works sometimes, but often gets you killed. Gotta remember that you're not really any more powerful than the average enemy, you just often have better weapons. If you're going to behave like an AI and just charge people blindly, it's going to be an evenly matched fight. Which means you'll often lose, especially when multiple enemies are involved.
Stay collected and move carefully. Half of my strikes are just me casually floating around slipping enemies and letting them drag against my blade. Be patient and don't take risks, if a guy is laying in a pile of deadly weapons, find a way to finish him off from a range instead of plowing into him and getting yourself all fucked up.
Also, there's a lot of visual/audio cues for things enemies do. They always grunt and shit before they throw something, as well as jerk back and forth. Ones with the bomb spamming system need to be still in order to use it, keep hitting them and they won't be able to.
Put enemies in front of each other. If you were fighting 3 people in real life, the smart thing to do would be to position yourself so 1 person can never get to you because you're keeping someone else between you. If you're fighting 3 enemies in the game, make it so one of them is always behind another one and cannot attack you. Getting completely surrounded is bad, bad, bad.
I thought I was doing really well at one level, and then I found out I activated god-mode when I was trying to set the hotkey for my gun to G.
My mouse wheel is fucked on my g5 scrolling does nothing, is there a way to change the key mapping so I don't have to use the scroll wheel to scroll through the inventory.
It's before you kill the lobster robot. You choose to go kill worms or go kill lobster bot.
I got the mortar, but too bad I don't have a second mouse to trade it to my main account.
I thought this: The higher the DPI, the better...
been playing on 2700 DPI for two days, raging so hard at the game because I thought it was impossible to beat
Guys all you have to do is press G to turn on godmode
Don't even need to edit the config
God damn this is ridiculous, I can't even see my hammer because there are so many pointless banners hanging off me...
Is there any glory penalty if you kill unarmed opponents?
i want the sword mastery trial to have a face so i could punch it
I'm not even that high ranked so i imagine it is only going to get worse.
Does anyone know how to change the reload times on guns? I want to go in there with a mortar minigun.
Nvm, figured it out, and it was a terrible idea.
I can't beat hammerball :(
How do you target with the gun? I fire randomly. :(
Why is everyone complaining about Hammerball? Was I the only one who thought it was pretty easy?
nvm Understood it
What happens if I accept or don't accept this guys offer for the position of Seneschal?
I broke all of my weapons when I edited my hammer to have 2000 frost in the armory
if you have more than 1 character and you have a shock weapon with like a value of 20 you can kill the other character when selecting the gamemode and character
Is there a cheat to get infinite money, with cheat engine or other means?
How the fuck do you kill that thing that sends imaginary electro shocks into the air?
I've been playing through the game again, except I'm using only the first sword you get, except for in levels where you can't use it. It is a lot easier than I thought it would be.
I couldnt even pass the first level.
Is there a changelog for 1.005?
Does anyone know how to get ahold of the dev who made this game? I want to e-mail them to ask them to update hammerfight on steam, and I can't seem to find any e-mail links on the site.
This game is the fucking shit.
I hope he returns, updates it, or possibly makes a sequel (with multiplayer and more awesomeshit).
This game with 12v12 multiplayer on huge maps would be fucking epic, all the players with their own weapon/amour combinations fighting alongside eachother would be totally sweet.
