Weighted Options

Weighted options allow you to choose how likely a particular option's value is to be used in game generation. The higher a value is weighted, the more likely the option will be chosen. Think of them like entries in a raffle.

Choose the options you would like to play with! You may generate a single-player game from this page, or download an options file you can use to participate in a MultiWorld.

A list of all games you have generated can be found on the User Content page.

Allow Death Logic

Some locations require a timed puzzle that can only be tried once. After which, if the player failed to get it, the location cannot be checked anymore. By default, no progression items are placed here. There is a way, hovewer, to still get them: Get killed in the current map. The map will reset, you can now attempt the puzzle again.

Check Sanity

Include redundant checks. This increase total check count for the game. i.e.: In a room, there might be 3 checks close to each other. By default, two of them will be remove. This was done to lower the total count check for Heretic, as it is quite high compared to other games. Check Sanity restores original checks.

reset_level_on_death

When dying, levels are reset and monsters respawned. But inventory and checks are kept. Turning this setting off is considered easy mode. Good for new players that don't know the levels well.
