Saw this tonight playing the nightly at angband.live. Asked about it in chat and it was suggested I report it here. That's a LOT of light, but it does say 'Starlight' afterall!

Attachment 1965

Sorry if this is hard to read. It seems to have shrunk the image and compressed it somewhat.

It says: when activated will rain 777257368 balls of light with radius 0 near caster, dealing 12 damage.

Yeah, that's probably too many :)

Thanks for reporting.

That would be easily enough to kill Morgoth in a single turn.

Nick's newest release, 2.0beta1-119-g67203a37, was built on Ubuntu 18.04 with it's older version of the MinGW cross-compiler. It would be interesting to hear if that works on Windows 8.1 from those who had trouble with the previous releases.

Further to this:
  • Note that Eric is responsible for the build adjustment
  • Also note that there are two more updates since that last one, and Eric's responsible for all the work in those too.

Nick, here is the randart file for the crash bug on object menu look. At least I think so. There were 9 randart files in the archive folder; attached is the most recent one. I assume that is right, since I haven't played since my most recent character with the crash. Attachment 1969

Seems to work fine!

The latest build has made Combat Regeneration - one of the big features for blackguards - optional in an attempt to make blackguard playable for advanced races (high-elf, adan, druadan). Let me know how that goes if you try it.

I had a couple of goes with a high elf paladin and then I had a go at FA 1.4 with a high elf paladin. My conclusion is that blackguards aren't the problem. The problem is a whole bunch of other stuff that changed between 2.9.3 and 4.x: monster power, monster density, improvements to pathfinding etc.

I mean just compare these 2:

Code:

N:302:Air hound
T:zephyr hound
C:g
I:110:10d9:30:15:0
W:23:2:0:120
B:BITE:HURT:1d7
B:BITE:HURT:1d7
B:CLAW:HURT:3d3
F:FORCE_SLEEP |
F:BASH_DOOR | FLYING |
F:IM_POIS
S:1_IN_10 | POW_0 |
S:BRTH_POIS
D:Swirling vapours surround this beast as it floats towards you, seemingly
D:walking on air.  Noxious gases sting your throat.

Code:

name:air hound
base:zephyr hound
color:g
speed:110
hit-points:68
hearing:30
smell:50
armor-class:36
sleepiness:0
depth:20
rarity:3
experience:200
blow:BITE:POISON:1d8
blow:BITE:POISON:1d8

flags:BASH_DOOR | FLYING
flags:IM_POIS
flags:FORCE_SLEEP
innate-freq:10
spells:BR_POIS
friends:100:2d7:Same
desc:Swirling vapours surround this beast as it floats towards you, seemingly
desc: walking on air.  Noxious gases sting your throat.

Its average hps have gone up, it has an extra attack, it appears earlier etc.

Yeah, it's more deadly. But in all the bugs I reported to Nick, that isn't one of them. More deadly is a feature. As Nick so often says, "FAAngband has that!" ;)
