How am I supposed to conserve ammo and avoid fights when the zombies are as wide as the hallways and I physically can't get past them?

>> No.5065096

You have to kill the ones who are really in the way and avoid the others, game is crap though.

>> No.5065101

You're right, literally nobody was able to do it and thus nobody beat the game, which made it never become popular so it didn't spawn a series

>> No.5065102

You use the environment around you. Luring zombies into more open areas, having them chase you around tables, and so on. You can also conserve ammo by going for headshots. The whole idea is that you have to be tactical. Some zombies in narrow high-traffic areas need to be killed. Others are in one-off rooms and you can just ignore them

>> No.5065172

Don't kill zombies. It's a scrub/noob method.
Just strike them with a knife IN THE LEGS a couple times, they fall, you run past. A LOT of ammo is saved this way.

Shoot them, or use your knife.
There's an advantage in just running past or escaping enemies, but there's also times where you have no choice.
Don't try to slice/stab the Hunters though, they'll hack your head off.

Personally, years of FPS has hardwired me to the "search and destroy" mindset, meaning I usually make sure to kill every enemy I encounter in games, which is something you actually *can do* in Resident Evil, but it's a lot less smooth at some parts, particularly on higher difficulties.
You don't make life easier for yourself by this method, but what it does do is give you some peace of mind, unless you get yourself hurt like an asshole, or use too much ammo.

Also, the flamethrower that you find much later, is complete dogshit, it can reach maybe about the length of you stretching your arm, and does poor damage, I wouldn't hold on to it longer than I had to.
Save your inventory space for literally anything else.
I forget, did you actually need that hunk of shit to progress in the original, or was that added in the REmake? It's been a while.

What a fucking remarkably plain and uninteresting flavor of the month.

If the zombie is as wide as the hallway, you take them out. You should have more than enough ammo conserved from avoiding other zombies.
If the zombie is in a tight hallway, but there is space to barely move around them, wait until the zombie's shambling leaves them walking into a wall, then run past them.

all you'll get is tryhard answers (maybe this is just a dog whistle for the same autists as always) just shoot them mate. Play Jill, explore until you get a Shotgun or Grenade Launcher and play the friggen game.

It's not worth breaking down tank stutter stepping, backwards-baiting into wide arcs or wall grinding. Its defs not worth the mundane couple of hours of grinding out the knife if this is your first playthrough. Fuck, I can't even talk about these games anymore despite loving them - they've become such a tribe of shouting.

I like to carry a handgun, no ammo, secondary weapon and herb most of the time but I like speed running or knifing the games. Have fun, clear enemies that are in hallways you are always running through and WAIT FOR BARRY.

Is knife good enough to be used this way in the first game?

>> No.5066725

We ARE talking about first game here, you dumb shit. It doesn't work in many games past first one, because they've reworked how zombies react when they're being hit in legs and falling, to circumvent such "cheating". In BIOHAZARD when you're capping a zombie it just falls and you can run past it while it's lying there. Since BIOHAZARD 2 Dual Shock Ver. and later on (Last Escape, Code Veronica, and etc), when you're hitting a zombie in the legs it'll be falling down like usual, BUT it'll will try to GRAB you as it's falling down, so a knife-abusing tactic immediately becomes a no-go since you have to be close to zombie for this to work and thus you're bound to get grabbed when it's falling towards you. You can still knee cap them from behind, though (not working well in Last Escape and later ones, though, since they've also made zombies turn much faster). Also, in B2 DSV and later, if you DO managed to get zombie fall down while not grabbing you, it will NOT fall into a stunned state (like in the first game), but in a CRAWLING state, so it'll still be able to attack you. All of this makes close range knife usage in any game past first one essentially useless, or at the very least much more dangerous and thus risk/reward ratio is much worse. This is especially bad case with Last Escape, as this game takes place before B2 and zombies in it are considered technically "fresh" (in B2 they're "withered", weaker and slower), so they move much faster, much more resilient and aggressive.

I also should've mentioned right away from the very beginning, but forgot to do so, that in REmake capping zombies with a knife and NOT killing them is ESSENTIAL, since this way not only do you preserve ammo in considerable amounts, but ZOMBIES ALSO NEVER TURN CRIMSONS DUE TO THEM NOT BEING KILLED! Sure, SCRIPTED "dead" zombies (ones which were already "dead" by the time you come into a location, like the fagshit in the arrow corridor) still turn Crimson if you don't burn them right away, but REGULAR ones, those which stand/walk, need to be KILLED first for them to turn Crimsons later, and since you're never killing them via knife and just running past when they're falling down, they'll NEVER turn Crimsons any. However, please do take into consideration that, UNLIKE the original PSOne release, REmake has ALL of the behavioral "additions" and "upgrades" which were made in B2DSV and later games, so in REmake in particular zombies try to grab you when they're falling down and when they fall they most often than not (this is actually controlled by difficulty level you've selected) will be falling into a crawling state instead of just stunned, so bad risk/reward ratio is fully present in REmake, a thing original BIOHAZARD release doesn't have. The only thing from the later games which REmake's zombies lack in their behavior, is movement and turning speed of Last Escape, which is logical since BIOHAZARD's and REmake's zombies are not "fresh" at all (they're actually quite weaker than even B2's "withered" ones) by game's canon. Only Crimsons are fast and aggressive.

1. Arrange (ESPECIALLY Green Arrange) gives MORE bullets and health items.

2. The ONLY thing which it differs at from Standard, is different locations of puzzle items and different pathway/layouts of enemies (it's like playing same stage of Tenchu, but with different Layout).

I've heard a couple hours ago from my gamer neighbor, who's a MASSIVE RE-anything nerd, that in first Resident Evil non-Director's Cut, as well as REmake and also Deadly Silence on DS, you can actually control and deliberately increase the Critical Hit chance of handguns when playing as Chris, as Chris is a high tier marksman by series' lore and thus can do more precise shots. According to the info, the initial Crit chance is 5% for both Chris and Jill, but when playing as Chris you can actually up the percentage significantly (to something like 40 or even 50 percent!) if you do the following: aim at the zombie for longer than 5 seconds while NOT moving at all (steady aim) and then try to fire and aim the gun upwards at almost the same time in a couple first frames when Chris' animation goes from body aim to the upward aim. My neighbor said he was landing crits (destroying the head) each 3-rd to 4-th shot by doing this, but this doesn't work in Director's Cut and Director's Cut Dual Shock.

Can someone confirm or debunk this? Please note that it's not supposed to make EVERY shot a crit, but it massively increases crit percentage on game's internal counter (it's 5% by default). This also supposedly doesn't work with Jill at all, only Chris.

Basically what this implies is that Chris, due to being a sharpshooter in the team by the series' lore, can aim better if he has enough time (5 seconds of not moving while aiming) and then he can land headshots much more often if he instantly shoots while he changes aim from middle to upper.

>> No.5067579

>Enemies are NOT harder and you are NOT weaker
first of all that's bullshit and you never played arrange mode
zombies not only can kill you in 1-2 bites as jill depending on whether or not you mash to get them off, but there are a significantly more hunters in the game and they DO NOT allow themselves to be stunlocked to death as they are not only invulnerable once they get back up, but also immediately go in for a jump attack, plus the chimeras are actually introduced a LOT earlier and replace hunters for the third part of the game and are SIGNIFICANTLY harder

Chris is Very Hard mode (applied over other modes, so it's essentially "even more HARD over already selected Hard in game's menu) in very first original uncut Japanese BIOHAZARD release (the 1.0, basically), while in later updates/releases he's just Hard. Either way, when you're playing as him it's basically adding double the Hard on top of the other Hard modes you can select. For example, if you're playing on Arrange or Green Arrange (which both are Easy and Very Easy modes, respectively), selecting Chris would essentially make game "Normal", while playing as Jill will be "Very Very Easy/Training" in that regard.

RE3 was censored, grey blood, zombies despawn immediately when they're killed, no headshots, and Mercenary mode is unwinnable because only dogs give time bonuses.
RE4 removed Assignment Ada and Mercenaries so you can't get the Handcannon or the Chicago Typewriter on GC. Since Typewriter is the bonus for clearing Separate Ways in any other version, you can get it from PS2 onwards.

Soundtrack is same, you're mistaking with Dual Shock Ver.
As for "wrong" things in comparison to original: it's easier (even when playing as Chris on """""hardest""""" difficulties available), cut/censored content galore, Rebecca's default costume design is DRASTICALLY different (though NOT bad. It's just NOT same costume as in the original), introduced new glitches/bugs which weren't present in the original.

It basically goes like this:
Original uncut/uncensored very first Japanese release (it's very important to denote it exactly like this, as even Japanese release got several "silent revisions" later which made things worse, so very first ever release should be basically called "ver 1.0" and it's the BEST rendition of BIOHAZARD, outside of REmake) > REmake's HD remaster > Deadly Silence > REmake > Director's Cut >>>>> Donkey Piss > Monkey Diarrhea Shit > Dual Shock Ver.

Knife Running isn't as intimidating as it sounds. If someone is Speedrunning (in their own way) an RE game they'll already be familiar with Problem hallways, Herb/FAS placement, and optimal routes to avoid Problem Hallways and enemies in general. The it becomes a
SLOW speedrun where you avoid most enemies, tank hits where unavoidable, use the Knife to down zombies when convenient, and throw yourself at Boss fights. Since you don't play for rank you can have a healthy amount of saves, use FAS, etc.

In RE1 Yawn 2 is a battle of attrition and Plant 42 requires finesse and knowing how to do it. You fight Tyrant once and Tyrants teach you a lot about 'off'hand dodging and choosing your frames to stab and retreat.

in 2 Birkin is pretty easy to dodge (knowing his 'off'hand is easier with its obvious tell) and Birkin Spawn is easier with a Knife. Last Birkin Scenerio A is a nightmare, RE2 lacks 180 Turns so you need auto-aim to even move fast enough in the fight. Birkin B is.. about what you'd expect, slow and a little cheesy. The Alligator is the Single Hardest hurdle in the entire series, to beat with a Knife. And You have to do it TWICE.

Nemesis relys a lot of geometry, hanging Nemesis up on corners, counting hits but desu I haven't killed him on every encounter. Nemesis with Knife in Pipe Room takes practice but you've slam dunked the game by then.

CVX is the best game if you're interested in Knife runs. The Knife is obvious better, tracking multiple hits per slash, there are plenty of healing items. Obstacles like Claire Plane Tyrant are seemingly impossible - it took me multiple days of trying, maybe just under a week. CVX most bosses have an environmental OHKO and Plane Tyrant is the most cramped you will ever fight a Tyrant. Beat that and you are rewarding with Nosferatu, which is actually the most fun to Knife in the series. He has OHKO, he bleeds poison if you don't run after stabbing him, his long limps cover 60% of the map.. fun fight though.

>> No.5074458

I never understood the "conserve ammo and avoid fights" meme. Killing zombies is satisfying as fuck, why would you turn the game into a running simulator. Also, even though ammo isn't exactly rare, running low adds to the stress and make the game, you know, fun. I guess I enjoy playing my games like they were supposed to instead of trying to figure out retarded ways to make the experience more autistic.

It's not walking into walls, it's turning to get nearer to the wall because the player is next to the wall. Pathfinding probably works on lanes painted on the floor, and the zombie is just getting to the "near the wall" lane before walking forward. Zombies also clearly have slow turn speed which basically amounts to their AI using tank controls, because of which it kinda looks like it's going to bump into the wall, but in reality it's just making an ordinary awkward tank-control-turn.

>> No.5074524

>why would you turn the game into a running simulator.
It's a resource management game. Being afraid of not having enough bullets is very suspenseful, and, if you're doing good, having enough bullets to clear out a room is cathartic. Just shooting zombies is boring, but conserving enough bullets due to your own skills and THEN shooting the zombies feels fucking great.

Seriously, RE3 is probably the most generous game in the ammo department. By the end of the game you have so much ammo of so much different weapons you can just fuck around with enemies.

Freeze rounds (Grenade round + C Ammo/CC for more/CCC for max) Freeze rounds are special made for Nemesis and about 7-8 will kill him in the forced fights.

I save the Magnum for the final boss and the end run, when you need to just GTFO as fast as you can, and you can't be trifling with no Hunter bitches.
The .357 always knocks them on their asses, so you can pop them when they come running, and just skedaddle past them.
It feels fun to "hit and run" like that.

How the fuck do you run out of ammo? At best it holds you a bit tight early on, but it's hardly constricting.

I like a challenge, but I also like not compulsively rounding down games into an exact science, I did enough of that shit as a teen. I have WAY too many games in my backlog to do that.
I mean some games I'll replay a lot, but by the point where you just dismantle the game to get the most perfect time and score possible, it kills the magic.

I just cannot be bothered to just invent abstract rules for challenge, if I have to do that, then I'm probably bored with the game, and I'd rather not wear it out permanently.

>> No.5075964

Thanks buddy. I might consider do a write up for the series, just some notes and strats I used over time. I don't have recording equipment and many others have done it before me. I saw my first Knife run back in 2004/5 on SDA - back then I was too scared t even play the games. Knife runs have always been the "thing" in gaming for me. it's really true that documentation is few and far between. I had to use a lot of Youtube videos of the games being Knife run. Maybe I'll compile the useful ones I copied off of. (uncommentated) I've beaten REmake as well, with Cemetary Crimson Head being your silly Benny Hill boss fight waiting for lounge animations.

Director's Cut (non-Dual Shock) if you're limited to PS1.
I know a lot of people have been playing the modded PC version, but does anyone have any experience running it natively on Windows 98? Does the 3dfx Glide support work on Voodoo 3/4/5, or is one of those early titles that needs a Voodoo 1/2? What about finding the right PowerVR card? This seems like the perfect title given the hardware I've been grabbing and the spooky season.
