I've tried deleting and reinstalling and stuff like that but to no avail! Wondered if there was an easy fix for this? The download version works fine, so it's no bother, I just like having it all neat and tidy in my console.

Thanks in advance!

With homebrew's configuration for Angband, the savefile should be in .angband/Angband/save in your home directory (so something like /Users/somebody/.angband/Angband/save ). Checking what's there could help.

OK. After spending way too much of my life on this, I have determined that I was in fact correct here, and that my plan of reverting backwardsEric's fix and rewriting everything was very bad.

I now have a fix which I think works in all circumstances (really this time) which will get pushed soonish.

Have Iron Shots intentionally gone from 1 AU to 3?

I guess that's because they've acquired the THROWING flag.

Quaffed a potion of surprise and probably changed into a bat. At least that's the message log says. Cool. A couple of notes though.

1. Is there some place where I can see that I have the bat form? Other than the message log. Status bar would be the obvious place. I'm playing with the Gervais set and it would be quite cool, if the character tile actually changed into a bat. EDIT: Doh, it says "Bat" right there in the upper left corner.
2. The character now has Stea, Infra, Speed, Dark and S.Inv on @ column in the character sheet. The message says that the character has learned the runes, but doesn't @ column mean innate abilities that don't grant knowledge on runes? Unless something has changed of course, I haven't played nightly versions for a while.

EDIT: 3. @ is a warrior and 'm' does not allow @ to change back to human form. Then again I'm not sure what key should work with a warrior. Trying to read a scroll triggers a dialog that allows @ to change back to human form. Or maybe the bat-form should last for a limited time, but in that case reading a scroll should not trigger the change back dialog.

Possibly an unintended consequence of the recent fixes to (a) Messages for learning objects by use, and/or (b) Objects with an unknown rune are never ignored (#4379); ignored objects no longer disappear until @ walks over them. It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. If an ignored object usually disappeared automatically on sight, but then didn't, @ would get "leaked" information that the item was cursed. But, not having it disappear on sight also unravels a lot of the ease that ID by use was supposed to provide, bringing back the pain in the ass of having to walk over every object.

Which ignored items are affected? I assume things like scrolls aren't, and weapons etc never did, so - rings and amulets?
