yes I was using whirlwind a lot. I had 8% fail with Dunadan. But 2 blows isn't much at dl 40, even with a good weapon. A mediocre ring of damage would make a good light weapon do better, not to...

Has the rendering code actually changed since then? That should be the single most stable component. Has the default window display changed? My first guess is that the overview map has...

Well, sort of. You'd need to hack the pref file, keeping only the terrain data, and leave everything else alone.

The full Android port already has V 4.2.2, Frog (Selmiak), Sil-Q 1.4.2, and NPP 0.4.1 and 0.5.4
