I play [single]multiplayer using direct lan bla bla whatever it's called.
When you die you drop all your items + gold. But sometimes I've managed to die without dropping my items.
Is there a way to work this so I never drop anything? I'm afraid i'll die at some place to difficult to go back in and retrieve my gear.
And another thing, what is best for a rogue, an armor with 17 def with + 11 to all attributes or a plain gothic plate with 50 def?
The instances where you died and did not drop any equipment are likely self-player kills. This is generally only possible with the Firewall spell, where you cast it and then kill yourself in the flames.
There is no way to prevent deaths by monsters from popping all your equipment. This can be mitigated by getting a trainer that allows you to save character files, that way you can save a copy of your character with all your gear on it, so that if you die in the future and cannot retrieve it legitimately, you can load your character up with the trainer program get it back that way. It'd be best to make a new backup of your character every time you found a new piece of gear that you decided to hang onto long-term. What tends to happen with trainers is that you start to use them as a crutch - "oh it doesn't matter that I just died and lost everything, I'll just load my backup and get the gear off that" - only to discover that your last backup was before you got your sweet new Jade Ring of Accuracy, which is now lost forever. This is a particularly likely scenario if you're playing late at night and then die and think "screw it, I'm going to bed, I'll sort the equipment out tomorrow" - I know, I've done it.
I don't have any links to trainers off my finger tips and technically that may be frowned upon in this forum (although IMO the game is so old and multiplayer so rife with cheaters anyway...), EDITED. Please do not give names of cheat/hacks. Not a good idea to tell others to use trainers either. Try to give advice without cheating. See the forum rules please. --Dacar
As for your armor, probably the gothic plate will be better for you, just because of the much higher AC. However the easiest way to answer this question is based on your own play experiences - if you find you get swamped by monsters and die quickly, then the gothic plate will probably help you by improving your def. If you find that that isn't such a problem, the extra HP and mana from the +to all armor may be more useful - the damage and to hit improvement is likely to be pretty minimal, but shouldn't be overlooked.
