Endless mode betatest (windows only)
Hi,

We have endless mode almost ready for release. But because there are many changes in the game, we have decided to make it available for betatesting for few days to catch any major bugs before releasing it to the public for everybody.

So if you would like to try the endless mode now, you can do it by switching Rampage Knights to beta branch in your Steam library. Any comments and bug reports are welcome. The beta version is available for windows only.

To try the beta version:
Right click Rampage Knights in your library, select Properties and click on the "BETAS" tab. Here you can select "beta - " branch (access code is not required). Once you select the beta branch, Steam should automatically download the beta version. If the game is not updated immediately, you can try restarting the Steam client.

Major changes
- Endless dungeon (use portal in the Camp to enter).
- In endless dungeon you can have only one of each passive item. You can have 3 familiars at max.
- New face and hats.
- Revised many pit rooms and spike rooms to make them less frustrating.
- Added new short level to the campaign.
- Various item and gameplay changes to make the game more balanced.

Love the new gamemode, definitely an awesome addition to an already awesome game :)
That being said, here are some thoughts and some possible improvements.

A dude and I got to level 50 before I stopped playing; we had spent 3 hours playing up until that point. We got to a point where we both had anti-curse, magic bean, mech arms, all the crit boost items,and the elven armor with infinite durability. Needless to say we were super op- time was the only issue at that point. I don't think weapon nerfing is warranted; getting those sick item combos isn't guarranteed, I'd say even relatively rare, in the regular gamemode.


Let me first say that I'm presuming there is no endgame super boss for the endless gamemode (Which is a safe assumption).

When I think about an "endless mode" I think of a gamemode that is "unwinnable", in the sense that the player will slowly, but inexorably, reach their demise. This isn't the case atm for endless mode, due to the aforementioned reasons (we get all the items, rendering us pretty op).

I think a cool way to make it harder at the later levels would be to turn it into endless shadow realm like mode at a certain point (maybe at like 25+ or something), where the player could lose some items at the beginning of every level; we did lose our weapons at around level 10 but that was the only time that happened.

The cool story like level progression caused by the notes/diary entries at the start of each new level type ceased to pop up after encountering all the different map types (such as giants, lose 1 vitality each room, etc etc). Maybe the last diary entry when the shadow realm begins could suggest that that was the last entry from the dude before he/she died?

Regardless I'm super happy that this game is still getting updates. Kudos

edit: the dude is still going strong. 6 hours play time, level 122. now the size of a giant with the potion that inverts strenth and vit, with regular vitality due to the bean lmao

Game error when reached level 128, game closed with this error message.

Value 128 of integer m_last_level_index of class Hero is out of SINT8 range (error)

Whats that mean?

EDIT: Pretty sure this guy above me is the same demon Barbarian i was playing with earlier lol.

EDIT No.2: Wish i had taken a screenshot if had known it would crash, unable to continue where i left off, it just crashes with same error each time i try,

Thanks to Mr Bean and the odd vitality potion, once i reached 200 max HP, i used a swap strength with vitality potion, only because my strength at the time was about 55, then after a few more levels my vitality had grown up some, upto 100 to be exact when i came across scotish warpaint, my damage was insane.

But anyway, from what i can remember from last i checked before this error crash, my vitality was around 77 and my damage about 540, with 25% chance to crit (i swapped a battle axe that gave x2 the crit chance for the icicle)

Had everything except for = banana, crab claw, mech arm, blue gloves, these 4 items don't work well with my play style.

Hey, ghibli, thanks for the report! You are right that certain combos may lead to invincibility. That's one reason we released the beta - to see, if people can get to that state. We will tweak the game to address this. There's not much reason to play beyond level 25 unless you enjoy your god like powers :).

The scrolls end at point where we plan to add the paladin as a monster. He's gone mad, dead, then undead and is out for blood! That's what the trials of the endless labyrinth did to him. Poor guy. :D

P.S.: What do you mean by "elven armor with infinite durability"? Elven armor should have 5 durability now. Do you mean you just don't get hit or is this a bug?

Rainbow armor that gives imunity to cold, fire, poisons, works well with plague mask, but no durability rating, just like bomber armor.

Can you send me the game's log file? The log file is located in Documents\Rampage Knights directory, there should be "game_log.txt" file.
You can send it to us via email to

The beta has updated SDL library we use for window and input management, maybe it is causing the issue. I will try to revert back to previsou version of SDL to see if it helps.

That's a bug caused by invalid data serialization for save/network. The game always crashes at level 128 regardless of items you have. Until I fix this, 127 is the max level for now :)

I just released patch with SDL reverted back to 2.0.3 version. Can your friend check if it runs fine? In the main menu the version should show "version 1.7 (beta 2)".

Allow me to reiterate that this is only a rare problem encountered in endless mode, don't nerf the items to the ground :)

Also, there's a funny and cool interaction between the banana and mech arms; when you are swinging the mech arms you walk over the bananas without slipping up. You can get a huge amount of bananas on the ground, it's absolutely hilarious. Personally I would keep this interaction as is because of how awesome it is haha

Solved issue by turning off antivirus software. reason for conflict is unknown but game works fine now.

I ran into the final boss on level 21, complete with flying showdown. After I beat it, it progressed to level 22 like normal. Very weird.

I seriously love the endless mode. For a few levels I had every curse except the midas touch, and I was constantly ploughing through a sea of enemies. Then I found the Palladin's belt from a chest and realized just how OP my character was. XD

I think it would make sense to add some kind of item decay ininfinite mode, because while it's very fun for a while to get a combination that makes combat trivial, it sucks the challenge out of the game. Maybe a timer on how many levels each item lasts?

I have just released new beta version (1.7 beta 3). Main changes in the endless mode:
- You can meet Rolf Ironbutt at level 25.
- Difficulty increases a bit after each boss battle (previously difficulty changed just once from hard to insane).
- From level 25 players get Item Decay status which breaks random item once in a while.
- Fixed crash when level 128 is reached.
- Paladin's belt, Amulet of Light and Elven Leaf don't spawn in the endless dungeon.

YES!!!! This is so much fun now! I did however beat Rolf on my 1st try. even though he takes ALOT of hits. he is still a slow giant. I found the hardest thing to deal with was his shield. the new enemies are cool too. I dont understand this new purple gold icon. what does it do? break my gold?

hmm it would have been nice to know that you cant really jump over giants anymore without taking damage. or use freedom giver so thats kinda useless now. I dont think this needed to be changed. there are enough things that hit you cheaply already. jumping over a giant to avoid damage is the only way to escape sometimes....now thats gone. Why was this changed? i dont find fighting them to be any harder knowing this now just more annoying i guess because my Knights abilities are now handicapped :( it is what it is though. so far most the other changes have been very good. 1st try on endless i only got to 88 :( most my stuff was broken. Can your weapon break? this has not happened yet im guessing not lol
