Good question - I haven't checked.

They're no longer necessary because blood falcons.

Latest beta only compiles for me under Linux (Devuan 3, based on latest Debian testing) if I comment out "bool confusing_blow" in "player-attack.h". The compiler complais it is defined multiple times.

OK, thanks.

Thank you for making this <3

This is my first time playing FAangband - and this seems to be the best version for it. Some questions / requests:

1) Does this variant always preserve artifacts? Is birth_lose_arts effectively the same option as old preserve, turned on its head?
2) Has the old autoroll (=specify minimal stats at birth) been removed entirely from this version? Can it be added back? Would you? Can I add it back myself just by editing some options file?
3) Is the old stat maximization option on or off in this variant?
4) Would it be possible to add some choices for hp gain at levelup? Such as, averaging HD for hp, maximum HD of hp, minimum HD of hp.

Just to clarify - which version are you playing? The answers to your questions will depend on that.

2.0 beta 1.

Here's an additional observation:

Many of the player character tiles seem to be off, at least compared to the FAangband 1.44 version.

For example, making a dark elf necromancer using Shockbolt tiles creates a generic armoured warrior as the PC. Other choices seem to default to this generic armoured warrior as well. In the 1.44 version, each of them seems to have a fitting PC model. For example, necromancer is this robed figure with blue magic coming from hands.

OK.

Correct; if birth_lose_arts is on, artifacts will not be preserved.

It is gone, and thoroughly gone, I'm afraid. Anything can of course be added back through code changes, but I'm not planning to add this back.

I think it's maximize on; in any case, it's the one everyone always used :)

I guess it would be possible, but again it's not something I'm planning to do. I feel like this is a fairly niche concern, there is a limit to how much time I have to spend on the game at all, and the game is complicated enough as is.

Yes, indeed, tiles as a whole are pretty hopeless at this stage; in fact they are probably the main unfinished business that is stopping me releasing this as 2.0.

Been messing around with the new BG on Angband nightly. Good changes. Safe to assume that class update will be coming to FA?
