Aha, yes! Thanks for pointing that out - and also for the fix :)

Just started playing anband recently.There is one thing that's a huge turn-off for me:

A clvl 20 half-troll warrior does more damage with his starting dagger than with a war hammer of orc slaying against orcs!

Super immersion-breaking and imo a bug in the combat system.

I did find some very poor behaviour in the character history editor which has now been fixed in development.

Regarding your recent change to ui-birth.c, it fixed another bug also reported by Vivit in this thread.

It also looks like I can get the program to crash by manually editing the character history to be too long. Can you replicate that, wobbly?

This has been the case for literally decades. I'm not saying it won't be fixed ever, but fixing it is a hard problem with far-reaching implications for game balance.

On looking at this, I think the current label is correct. Level for an item is used in a few places, most importantly for how easy devices are to use. Frequently, but not always, this does correspond to minimum depth it can be found. So I think level is probably the thing to print, and I think calling the column level is also correct.

Can we have a "smaller levels" birth option in future version ?

That seems like something to look into.

Didn't wobbly have a go at fixing this? Might be worth looking at what he's done with coffeeband here?

I looked into this a bit and
  1. decided that it would require significant change to the combat system rather than just tweaking, which led to
  2. introducing the percentage damage birth option, which is too broken to be more than just a placeholder at the moment, but should evolve into a real alternative.
