icon King Dugan's Dungeon 2.0  
Smitemaster's Selection, Summer 2005

Beethro Budkin, fifth-generation dungeon exterminator, accepts a job from King Dugan III to exterminate the pests that have infested his twenty-five level dungeon. He won't get to marry the king's daughter as part of the deal, but it should pay well enough. Following this, Beethro dreams of opening up his own restaurant. "I think I'll call it Beethro's Roasted Roach Grill!"

Fire up DROD, and Change Location. You should see KDD 2.0 somewhere on the list, if you are connected to CaravelNet; if you aren't, it won't work.

In other words, there is no download provided on the site; you must be a CaravelNet suscriber in order to play the hold.

But if they put it as a physical file, then it's open to pirating. I think it's perfectly fine as it is, and if you do have problems with CaravelNet, it's best to get them fixed ASAP in any case.

I have a CaravelNet key, but for some reason the "Download" button in the "Change Location" menu is disabled for me. Why would this be?

Do you have 2.0.8? If not, that is the reason. Upgrade to 2.0.8 and it will work again.

Let me just say two things, Where is this 2.0.8 patch located. And the other thing is, I use the Caravelnet key my brother was given but it never seems to connect, it is impossible for me to download this, and I'm nver going to win KDD if I don't get it. :angry

2.0.8 can be downloaded on this page.

As for the key, I would suggest just requesting a new one after installing 2.0.8, and try it again.

Wow! Wow! Wow! The ending for KDD 2 is a million times better than jtrh & kdd 1. It is awesome! I don't want to spoil it but it is great! Whoever thinks there is no difference beetween KDD1 and KDD2 and doesn't want to get it is wrong.

Whew, mastered. Just under 12 hours. I wonder how long it took Doom..

I agree, the ending isn't *quite* as good as the original, but I don't think that any ending will ever be as good as the original KDD ending. Uh, the caravel version, that is ;)

As for secret rooms, they were cool. I especially loved the 'gauntlet' room. Very cool.

That room was possibly the best I ever played. It was so much fun an probably enabled you to kill the most monsters at a time in that hold. Obviously you can kill alot more with bombs.
It gave me a really good feeling sitting in beetween the mimics and you are protected from all sides.

Ah, I probably killed myself with mimics while testing it more than from roaches. Especially when I entered with my sword in an "opposite" direction, sometimes if I didn't stop and think about the rotation direction I'd kill myself and have to undo.

Actually, that's an interesting question...is there an initial sword orientation that is "better" than any other? Looking through the top 8 demos, the top 4 have orientations NW, SWx2, E (me), and then Wx4, which is most likely because they kept their swords the direction of movement when entering the room (NW because of the direction of hitting the secret wall, perhaps). I'm the odd one out because I remember having better luck during testing if my sword was in an odd orientation...but obviously it isn't required. But still...is it just happenstance that the top 4 scores have sword orientations that aren't W? Something to occupy you, rowrow, since you like the room so much...see how much different the initial sword orientation makes. :D Maybe there are some orientations that are impossible...or so hard that they're worthy of challenges?

Game on,

It's nice to have the voices, it's more fun (and less to read)
and I only missed 2 secret rooms (in JtRH I missed 5)

This is nothing to worry about, but I had to write it:

Well, I conquered the hold last night (Found all the secrets, but have yet to complete 32% of them), so I'm going to give my initial comments about the hold here. Note that I'm not going to rate the hold until I'm completly finished it.

Well, there's about 15 hours and 30 minutes between the moment I downloaded the hold and the moment I mastered it. Of course, that's not only Drodding. That would be too insane ;)
