Yay! *forked* I've pulled previous versions of PWMA- maybe it would be fun to have them at PWMA git :)

Also from now on it would be possible to read PWMA patch notes in Russian there:

There is no feature to let people choose a label for the issues. This prevents random guys from spamming issues with a wrong label and polluting the search by label feature.

Common practice is to add the label in the issue title, for example: "[Bug] This doesn't work". With this, the owner can review the issue, add the label and change the title to "This doesn't work". Don't add the label in the description because it cannot be modified. The title can be.

Please do this for the next issues you report.

There will be a build 4 before I start working on monsters and 1.4. I've already un-hardcoded the flag/element descriptions on character creation, so you can use more flags/elements when creating new races. Next is to do the same for classes (for ex. blackguard with impair hp). I'll also un-hardcode and add the possibility to assign a level for those flags/elements. For example: BRAVERY_30 will be replaced by RES_FEAR:30. I'll do the same for all hardcoded race/class features that are currently hardcoded in player-calcs.

New PWMAngband 1.3.0 build 7 released!

Major release with the addition of modifiers for races and classes + some fixes and improvements.

List of changes:

- Remove references to "src" path in lib files
- Further improve time bubble indicator

- Add LighterBlue option for mangclient_gcu.ini to make COLOUR_BLUE and COLOUR_L_BLUE lighter

Note: this release removes stats and other hardcoded values such as infravision for races and classes. For now on, these must be added as modifiers in the race and class text files. For example:


for a race or a class that has a +2 to strength innate modifier.

Values can be entered as a random value string to specify a variable modifier. For example:


will add +1 speed at levels 5, 20, 35 and 50. This will allow to un-hardcode things like Rogue speed bonus for example.

Latest build has corrupted files (mainly freetype.dll), as I trashed all my local copy again by using search/replace on directory instead of single file. Fortunately all files that were stored in Git repository are fine, I could do a full revert, but all building files/binaries are wasted. This includes my zip archives, which are now irremediably lost (cannot open the zip and cannot revert the search/replace I've done).

I'll try to ninja fix this tomorrow.
