THIS is Ultra-Spoiler page, so if you feel like winig ADOM honestly, then leave now!
But before leaving, try this - a set of icons for Adom, which I created. It has just 7kB and there are 18 icons! Important - rename this file from "adomicons.zip.rename" to "adomicons.zip"!
ADOM is very hard game - it is nearly impossible to win. You can't copy saved games, and if you die, there is no chance to continue game, because your savefile is deleted when you restore game. So Cheating is sometimes wery useful. And needed to win. It is sad, that 50% PCs die before reaching level 5, 25% before L10, and 20% before L20, just about 2% Characters have fair chance to win. This gives new dimesion to exitement when you play, nothing is sure and player must concentrate to keep his PC alive on every step.
THERE are several reasons why NOT TO CHEAT:
Cheating messes with game engine and data storaging, so game crasches a lot. (and in very ugly way :-0)
Sometimes game will detect cheating, and you will become doomed and cursed and several other bad things.
While cheating you can experience dangerous situations which don't exist in cheat-free game. This includes strange deaths because you can miss-itentify variable or data structure and - IE. - increase danger of level by 1000 times, or become crushed by tons of luggage, give monster bilion hitpoints ...
There will be still dangers like loosing equipment in tower of ethernal flames or in underwater cave.
Your gaming experience will be bad - nothing will be chalenge, you will get yourself into situations from which is no escape (like being forever paralyzed without chance of getting free - happend to me twice, only escape was ctrl+alt+del)
Cheating is quantity, Non Cheating is quality - keep in on mind.
Some thing can't be earned by means of cheating (You still must earn artifacts and so on).
You still have to think! You will never be immortal or omnipotent, so take care in certain situations... (so dont enter plane of chaos without the right equipement)
IF you think, that you still want to cheat you will need:
Decent OS, which will allow you to switch tasks and put programs to sleep (Win9x+ or Linux will do)
Latest copy of ADOM
Generic trainer (it is program which will enable you to search memory or other runnig program for data and variables, and then it will allow you to modify them)
Some space in HD (about 10 times size of adom directory)
Brain and lots experience from playing adom.
Q: Enable multiple saved games from single player to be stored?
A: One could think that simple copying *.svg somewhere else is enought. It isn't - adom stores info about svg somewhere else (in adom.exe?? - I don't know), and restoring that games isnt recomended - ADOM will get angry and curse and doom you, so safest is to copy whole adom directory (it consumes HD space, but 3 megs are tiny on 10Gb HD :). Mind two things: Always copy ADOM before restoring game. You might create some king of script which will do it instead of you (.exe program creating unique copy (which does not owerwrite latest copy) will be excelent, linuxers should make .sh file ... be creative!). The 2nd is, that svg is deleted after game is restored, so keeping some copies will prevent loosing L49 character after encountering bug!
Q: I want raise my stats a lot (or I hate my Str 4!)
A: There are many ways how to raise ones stats. Some are spoilers, some are normal game behaviour, some are cheats:
Eating corpses is recomended. See spoilers to get to know who you have to consume!
Some herbs also raise stats.
There a poitons which raise stats. Recomended is blessed poiton of gain atributes, which raises all stats by one. BTW: Bless everything, blessed things are better!
Athletics skill is good for your body.
One dwarf is known to raise stats. For tons of gold.
Artifacts and special items can boost something...
Hexa editing savefile can raise your stats, but game detects if, and you will be cursed and doomed. You wont survive it.
Using game trainers is good, but you must raise stat by other means at least by two points to be able to find exact value. If there are always two mem. addreses in trainer, you have stat equal to its maximum. Be sure, that maximum is higer than current value of stat!.
You can wish for them.
Note that no stat can be higer than 99, Hit points Max, PP Max, DV ... (derived stats) cant be raised because they are counted every time they are needed. Weapon skills are not cheatable too. You can riase Xp, but it is not recomended! You can also raise your current Hit point and current power points.
Q: I need this or that item, is there any way? Or I need more fireproof blankets!
A: There surely is!
First method is "Player generation trick". It is based on the fact, that certain classes or races get some items for start (see spoilers).
If might need spellbooks get spellcasters (priest or wizzard) For weapons get fighter ... and so on. Most useful are merchants, becaose they specialize on these wares: Poitons, Scrolls, Rings and Wands. But they are randomly generated, and certain items (Wand of wishing, Poiton of cure coruption) are not generated ...
Ok: To start generate character and pray to get what you need, once in game go to outlaw town:
You enter a derelict and muddy settlement populated by equally derelict and
A St:14 Le:17 Wi:15 Dx:15 To:21 Ch:12 Ap:12 Ma:13 Pe:11 L
DV/PV: 12/1 H: 25(25) P: 9(9) Exp: 1/0 BVL Sp: 100
Do not look left or right and drop all the stuff you think that is usefull. Leave town. (don't interact monsters or kill anyone !! Don't explore town, just enter, drop and leave )
Once you left town a temporary file with saved map will be created in adom/adom_dat/tmpdat. it is usually called "adtl22_1" copy it somewhere else (to keep it after game is quited.). To be able to copy game put adom into background by pressing alt+enter.
Then Quit game (shift+q), quitting will not write to highscore and is faster.
With this you started it. To go-on create another character with interesting stuff and enter Lawenilothehl, then go away and THEN copy map from previous game, re-enter town and you will see stuff your previous character dropped. Drop more of it, leave town and againg copy map somewhere else.
This simple trick will enable you to get a lot stuff, and even to exchange stuff between games! also think a bit more, and you will have infinite stuff. Enter town, drop stuff which you want to double, leave, copy map of town from tmp dorectory, enter with char again town and pickup stuff, leave, copy map back to tmp, enter town again ... voila! there will be the same items you picked up before!! B. happy.
But to get this stuff one character will have to find it... at least one item!
You can wish for items (not working always) or create item by spell ...
Q: I have this or that, I need more! I need more gold!
A: Simple. Use copying map trick (above) or Edit memory with trainer. You can even wish for wealth. Gold is in game cared like any other item, so threat it like item.
Q: Spells or My magic user didn't find any spellbooks yet! I need spells!
A: There are three ways how to get spell:
Wish for spellbook of that spell, not working always. This requires time to learn (you must read book)!
Finding Poiton od wonder or wand of wodner. Drinking poiton gives you random spell or increases knowlegde of spell, wand has similar efects, but it casts learned spell immediately and can be recharged. You can wish for these. You can even get spell for wish or create item!
Find library. (You must climb deep rift and so on ...). It is very dangerous, but worth of it.
Q: I'm lacking skills I need! Is there any help for me?
A: Wish for skill, or read spoilers - some skills can be gainded in game
Q: Wishing. I want a wish.
A: There are several ways how to get free wish.
Blessed ring of djini summoning is great thing. as soon as you find it replicate it so you will have few hudreds of them. 'U'se ring to get wish
Poiton of wonder sometimes gives you spell 'Wish', but it has too high PP cost, it can even kill you while attempting to cast it!
Q: I am dying a lot! Any hints to survive?
A: Having few hundreds of poitons of extreme healing is a good way.
Or Wish for health
Or get amulet of life saving.
Or use game trainer to freeze hp value on 1000 - no-one will be able to kill you. This even saves life after death - game checks after death if you have amulet of life saving, and then it checks again hp, frozen value of hp will save you life!
Q: Any other tips?
A: Here we go:
While using trainers make sure, that seleted process is winloa386, and that trainer selects whole memory. Some values cant be found (weapon skills, amount of corruption ...), or are found, but dont work (case of corruption)
Become champion of your god! Just cheat and get 1 000 000 of gold, sacrifice it and you'll become extremely close to your god, pray and be crowned! Then from time to time use holy symbol or sacrifice some corpses to keep god ok. Rewards are great. You must keep aling on its level, so use amulets of law/ballance/chaos and tracs of law/ballance/chaos. dont sarifice on oposing altars!
Dont get yourself corrupted! corruption is a BAD thing!
