Startup crash bug
 
Switching from my triple screen setup to the laptop made it impossible to start frogcomposband.exe (windows). The culprit is the PositionX that worked in the multi-display setting
Code:

...
Maximized=0
PositionX=6453
PositionY=0
[Term-1]
...

So the "Wild Weapon" is in there like a special attribute or something.
What does it actually mean?

Wow. Wild is a good name.

So that character died without using it. But the next char also found one really early (from never to two in a row). He's a leprechaun so shouldn't be meeleeing, but I hit an orc and got +99 speed. Hard to not want to keep trying that.
Only happenned the once though, mostly get the "eyeEye" effect (whatever that is) and telepathy, occasionally some beserk.

Are any other differences between normal, coffe-break and instant coffe-break appart of no wilderness, and size of levels, etc? i mean more like gameplay/items/monster behaviour or placement differences? i've tried coffe-break and i knew it has also quest, fewer, but has some, but i've not found yet any gameplay/item/monster difference appart from some uniques being in the angband dungeon and not their normal quest dungeons for example. How instant coffe-break compares to that?

The differences between normal mode, coffee-break mode and instant-coffee mode are explained in various places in the help, most comprehensively at ?bk, so have a look there. There is some additional detail in the FAQ, starting at line 55.

New stuff!
 
I am I the only one amazed by all the new content in this release? Monsters, dungeons, gods, items ... I'm currently posessing The Wicked Witch of the South-East after raiding Oz and the top indian mythos uniques look very interesting for a possessor and ... so much great stuff in this release!
A big thanks to you Sideways!

Wizardstaff?
 
A plain unenchanted wizardstaff is still quite valuable although it, like all others I've found in this version, lacks both Es and Dm. I find this confusing, is there any benefit for a spellcaster to wield a wizardstaff these days?

Wizardstaves have Dm, it just isn't indicated for characters who don't get any benefits from it; seeing the Es/Dm flags on items that didn't actually help a character in any way was even more confusing than the current situation, especially for classes who could use Es/Dm but only if they got them from a special class item.

The object valuation algorithm can see the hidden Dm, and scores the wizardstaff accordingly.

Thanks! I thought while posessing eg Saruman I would benefit but it seems not

Unlimited Heal Self on Grand Inquisitor
 
when possessing Grand Inquisitor it has no SP. Heal Self costs 55 but heals 250 so effectively you get unlimited 250 hp healing as long has he is above 54 hp when casting. Nice! Intented?
(Edit: net 195 hp);
