I've never been past level 4 and now I'm on level 13... then something teleported me and now here I am stuck. There is lava on one side and walls on the other 3. The wall to the left is only 1 block and then a big room (where I came from). I can't use earthquake because there are no squares next to me to target. I tried the holy hand grenade, with no luck, as well as a steam bolt bomb.

I found some debug switch and tried it, but when I press "P" to go up a floor the game just crashes.

  • Do you have a table and mirror?

Eureka! In debug mode you can click anywhere on the minimap and instantly teleport there. FIXED!

Instructions for enabling debug mode: (From http://dredmod.com/wiki/Debug_Mode)

Using Steam

  1. In your Steam Library, right click on Dungeons of Dredmor and select "Properties".
  2. On the General tab, press the "Set Launch Options" button.
  3. In the dialog box, enter the text: -debug-flag
  4. Press OK to close the start options.
  5. Press Close to close the Properties window.
  6. The game will now launch in debug mode every time until you remove the -debug-flag from the launch options.

Using a shortcut in Windows

  1. Navigate to your Dungeons of Dredmor game folder using Windows.
  2. Inside this folder you will see the file "Dungeons of Dredmor.exe". This is the game executable.
  3. Right-click on the game exe and select "Create Shortcut". This will create a shortcut icon named "Shortcut to Dungeons of Dredmor.exe" in this same folder.
  4. Right-click on the shortcut and choose "Properties". This will open the Properties window and should select the Shortcut tab.
  5. In the Properties window on the Shortcut tab you will see a box labeled "Target". It will contain the full path to game executable. If the path contains spaces (e.g., "C:\Program Files...") then the path will be surrounded in double quotes. These must be kept.
  6. Click anywhere in the "Target" text box and press the "End" key on your keyboard. This will move the cursor all the way to the end of the box. You could also use the arrow keys to achieve this. The cursor must be after the final double quote if there is one. With the cursor at the end of the box, press the Spacebar key to add a space then type in: -debug-flag The Target text box should now contain something like: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dungeons of dredmor\Dungeons of Dredmor.exe" -debug-flag
  7. Press the OK button in the Properties window to save this change and close the window. Any time you want to launch the game in debug mode you double click this shortcut rather than launching it the normal way. You can move the shortcut to anywhere on your computer, like the Desktop or your Start Menu, and you can rename it if you'd like.
  • That's very good to know. I didn't realize debug mode did that.
