How fast can you and your friends clear a 50 floor dungeon in this...

SRB2 Dungeon Crawler


Intro
Fight through randomly generated levels with increasing difficulty (Max: 5). Most Levels will have randomly generated enemies, and (basic) hazards. If you think this is crazy, or if you think I'm crazy for creating this, you're probably right. Don't believe me? Open up your favorite .pk3 editor and see the level for yourself!

Encounter randomly generated enemies



Experience randomly generated nonsense!



Get to to the goal!



It's also netplay compatible*! Assemble a team together!


Gameplay
You spawn in a random area of the map. Your goal is to reach the spring which will bring you to the next Dungeon Level. At the time of writing, all players must be present on a spring to move on. At the last level, you fight a basic Eggman boss, however he may be accompanied by other enemies to spice up the challenge.

As an added bonus, rings, score and present shield powers are preserved between level transitions.

Helpful Console commands
Code:
dng_printlevel <num> - Prints the desired level. Up to the maximum generated levels.
dng_levels <1-999> - Server only. Defaults to 5. Generates this many levels for a given dungeon. (Requires map switch+reload. Will not generate if in a current Dungeon Run)
dng_clear - Server only. Clears the current dungeon, and starts a new dungeon run from Level 1. (Requires map reload)
dng_skiplevel - Server only. Skips the current Dungeon Level. (Does not work for the last floor)
dng_gotolevel <num> - Server Only. Allows you to skip to a specified floor of a dungeon, if one exists.
  • dng_printlevel legend
    • Below is a list for what is visible to the player in a 48x48 grid (matrix).
      Code:
      Tile.WALL = 0 -- Impassible
      Tile.WALK = 1 -- Walkable
      Tile.CORR = 2 -- Corridor passageway
      Tile.SPAWN = 3 -- Player Int Spawn
      Tile.SPRING = 4 -- Spring (Ascending)
      Tile.RING = 5 -- Ring collection
      Tile.ITEM = 6 -- Item
      Tile.KEY = 7 -- Key space
      Tile.ENEMY = 8 -- Enemy
      Tile.BOSS = 9 -- Boss
      Tile.PIT = 10 -- Death Pit

Problems, bugs?
  • MT_DRAGONBOMBER has been disabled for this release. It has a tendancy to cause an unknown sigsegv with the Eggman boss found on the last dungeon floor.
  • Outside of the MT_DRAGONBOMBER behavior, I have not seen any erratic behavior from any other enemy that would cause an error to happen.
  • Some enemies will be looking away from you when they are spawned. This is expected and I'm actively looking into changing this for the better in a future release.
  • If there are any enemies that DO happen to give an error, or worse, a sigsegv, please report it! I understand the mixing of enemy types can have unexpected results. Please report anything you may be doing at the time of error, if one were to occur. Screenshots and providing your srb2win.RPT file also helps too! Let's work through this together.

Speical Notes
Level generation is random. So don't be surprised if you find a level with a spring next to your player spawn, or a level that has multiple of the same enemy. I've tried to mitigate this as much as I can.


Changelog:

As an addendum to my original post, for whom it may concern, I've had a few discussions with a few people in the srb2 discord. They suggest this is more of a Lua script than a fully fledged level. However I am open to go either which way with the judging decision.

Due to how much this does (even for just "1" level) and providing an alternate mode of play, I'm gonna file it under Mods. Welcome to releases!

I'm not a huge fan of the Rogue-like genre as a whole (except games like the Mystery Dungeon) but this is a great thing for a quick run of SRB2

smh, should've called it SRB2 Dungeon Crawla. Other than that, it's epic. Really allows tons of things to happen in netgames, such as making ia last man standing with difficulty 5.

Hey all, v1.0.1 of this script is available. This attempts to fix a unique issue whereby if players attempt to join mid-dungeon, and if the number of generated levels is greater than that of it's set default value (5), the game outright sigsegvs for the host player. Already joined players do not have a problem. It is recommended to warp to a map of your choosing before commencing in the Dungeon Run.
See below for changes.

Code:
v1.0.1
- Fixed small typo within the code that originally wasn't triggering anything.
- Disallowed joins for *new players* joining servers while in the middle of a run if the number of generated levels is greater than that of it's set default value (5).

This is a really cool mod! Pretty simple, but fun to pop in and play, not to mention it's a pretty good way to test out other characters.

I can't imagine how you even made this, but have you considered trying to make a way to add verticality to the levels? I'm guessing that'd be pretty difficult. I think a no rings mode would also be an interesting way to spice this up.
Either way, great job on this!

This has potential to be really cool! I love the idea, I'd really love to see it expanded with slopes, more complex and/or difficult level design, etc.

Can 5 emblems be hidden somehow?

Keep it up!

this mod is very great but it could be nice if there would like buttons to activate the exit, doors, or secret rooms the more harder the dungeon gets

>not dungeon crawla
one job

It is definitely a technical feat, but I really really wish the floors were larger and the difficulty went further than just 5.

After trying the new version, I realized that there is a glitch where after leveling up with 100 rings, you get an extra live by taking another ring

Same thing with 200 rings, you get 2 extra lives.

This is super fun! In my brief plays so far, I'm really impressed at how well it works.

The Tron wireframes are cool but just curious — how difficult would it be for this to also include backgrounds/wall/floor/skyboxes that are randomly generated from a small selection?

With some walls/floors from Castle Eggman Zone, this could feel like a full dungeon crawler!

Highly recommend playing this as Egg Robo. It's a really fun combination.

With the way I'm envisioning it, this shouldn't be too difficult of a feat. Although, it will mainly take some trial and error to see what textures work best with one another. And, with the way dungeons are generated, my main limitation, is making it look neat and tidy - Say if a room had a CEZ Carpet floor texture much like Thunder Citadel, or something similar.

I don't adequately have a clean way to implement hiding emblems for the time being. I can, however, highly consider this as a possible dungeon clear option!

Surely a consideration for a wave of dungeon clear conditions!

Collecting Emblems or activating multiple points or switches to get out of a floor sounds really cool!
