And for the case that you or some potential forker cares: The perfect direction for *me* for the game to take would be to improve on transparency. Probably drop alignment entirely. Make it absolutely clear what a point of wis does against spells or how weapons compare damage-wise, what resistances have what detailed effect on the various damage type special effects, what all the classes and class powers do in detail, how the various scaling systems (such as the new devices) work and so on.

I should be able, in my humble opinion, to see all this ingame at a fingerpress or two.

Suggestion for PCB's nightmare mode's midnight effect (SPOILER):

We all know how nightmare mode is supposed to work right? In PCB 7.0.0's Nightmare mode - World Map travel has some kind of protection against the midnight effect. During a recent nightmare-mode, midnight struck while I was in World Map mode and then all I got was the dungeon trembles. The game should be summoning Cyberdemons at this point, but in my experience the game doesn't and never did. So, I think the midnight-effect needs to be *WAY* more punishing for PCB Nightmare-mode players.

In PCB 7.0.0's Nightmare mode, corpses are supposed to revived into live monsters...but, I don't see this at all! This surely would have happened in the original Z's nightmare mode, but in PCB 7.0.0...not happening to my surprise!

Another 7.0.0 bug:
Cyclops characters now have Probe Monster and not Throw Boulders anymore! (I might be wrong) ....Uh, apparently, I noticed the same thing with Zombies too. I've been playing Snipers lately...So, is the Probe Monsters ability part of being a Sniper? Sorry if I didn't know this earlier, I'm merely getting used to how Snipers work.

I found one bug (I guess): it seems I can't wear / wield items that stay in Inventory's second page
Any advice on this?

Snipers get Probe as a class power, yeah. If you don't use spoilers or easy-lore it's probably pretty handy for figuring out monsters' elemental weaknesses and getting the most out of your element-branded sniper powers.

I can corroborate this. I found myself forced to drop such items (as you can still drop them, just not equip) and equip from the floor. ...and then eventually to switch to a smaller font.

I think this has been around since 6.x -- I believe it's fixed in elliposcheng.

Work Around
Drag the Main Window open at least another 5 lines. This solves the issue as there will now no longer be a second page.

Shame on me I don't know that's possible! I thought resizing the game window has to be somewhere inside in-game options, but couldn't found any!
Oh man, shame on me... Thanks sincerely, CyclopsSlayer
