DXChallenge - player challenges for Deus Ex

Post by mmm »

Hey, everyone.

I've made a small modification for Deus Ex that implements various player challenges into the game. After selecting skills at the game start player is directed into a window that will allow him to select one or more of different challenges (full list below). If the player fails any of the selected ones, he will immediately die. This mod is based on my previous one, DXStats, so you will get stats for free.

The challenges available are:
* Do not kill anyone - You should not kill anyone, both hostiles and friendlies. You must not destroy any bots.
* Do not knock anyone out - You should not knock anyone out or stun, both hostiles and friendlies.
* Do not trigger any alarms - No alarms should be triggered, whether by AI, cameras or lasers.
* No firearms allowed - No shooting from firearms. That includes pistols, stealth pistols, assault rifles, sawed-off shotguns, assault shotguns and sniper rifles. You will still be able to pick them up and drop them.
* No heavy weapons and explosives - No shooting from heavy weapons and no explosives. That includes flamethrowers, GEP guns, LAMs, LAWs and plasma rifles. Yes, that also means explosive crates. You will still be able to pick them up and drop them.
* No saves allowed - No saving or quicksaving allowed ingame, except for autosaves at the beginning of each level.
* No lockpicks allowed - No lockpicking doors and containers with lockpicks, you'll have to find a key or destroy it. You can still pick them up and drop them.
* No multitools allowed - No manipulating code locks, alarms, cameras, etc with multitools. You can still pick them up and drop them.
* No hacking allowed - You cannot hack computers, security consoles and ATMs.
* No medkits allowed - You cannot heal using medkits. You can still pick them up and drop them. Using medbots is allowed.
* No biocells allowed - You cannot absorb energy from bioelectric cells. You can still pick them up and drop them. Using repair bots is allowed.
* No augmentations allowed - You cannot install any new augmentations except the basic light. You can pick up and drop augmentation canisters.

Feedback is appreciated. This is the first release and I didn't have to time to check the ability to actually finish the game with any and all of these.
