Please speak up if you have any of the following options on settings
other than the ones listed:

Merge inscriptions when stacking : yes (stack_forace_notes)
Hilite the player with the cursor : no (hilite_player)
Repeat obvious commands : yes (always_repeat)
When running, ignore doors : yes (run_ignore_doors)

Flush input on various failures : yes (flush_failure)
Flush input whenever disturbed : no (flush_disturb)
Flush output before every command : yes (fresh_before)
Flush output after various things : no (fresh_after)

They're all liable to disappear next version if no-one stands up in
support of them.

I always turn flush_disturb and fresh_after on.

I'd like to keep "Hilite the player with the cursor".
I usually turn it on. It's easier to spot your character.

I turn off "When running, ignore doors" but I will survive if the option disappears :)

"Hilite the player with the cursor"

A must-have. Always ON when I play.

Well, I've nuked all but three of these, and there are only 31 non-gamplay non-cheat options now, spread across three screens. I think this is a good enough reduction to just leave things alone fo now.

Thanks for the replies.

I agree. I turn it off also, but it's not that big a deal.

So "Merge inscriptions when stacking" has been removed from Angband? I noticed that my items don't merge anymore after updating to 3.0.9. :(

Did I miss another setting affecting this?

Er, this is rather bad, but I can't remember whether I changed so they did or they didn't. I'm pretty sure I meant to change it so they did.

I think its more sensible to have a 'ignore inscriptions when merging' inscription, than a separate option. Unangband allows you to inscribe '=s' on two objects, and they'll then act as if all the force_stack options are enabled, for those objects inscribed with '=s' only.

Hmmm, ok. After thinking about it, I conclude that I have a different problem. I'll start a new thread (http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=218) because I don't think it's related to the options (which I didn't change).
