Competition 73

Competition 73 is now available from the competition page; it is an Angband 3.1.1 Half-Troll Priest. Note that comp 72 still has a few days to run.

IMO 3.1.1 won't ready until the "pushes past" problem is fixed for chars with ESP. You should wait until there is a new version on the front of rephial before having a comp.

I was considering submitting something, but held off because IMO it is still too early for 3.1.1.

Too late - the die is cast now. The only solution is to whinge. In fact, I only used 3.1.1 for the comp so that something would get done about "pushes past" problem.

I just started playing the comp character and noticed that I cannot choose which spells to learn. I get a message "you can learn 1 more spell", I select the first book and presto I have learnt a random spell. Not having played priests before I was just wondering if that was normal behavior or a bug?

This is how priests work, to learn specific spells with a lower wisdom score, its good to save some up then learn from the book your spell is in in hopes you get the one you want.

OK, the competition page now recommends using build 1626 (which has the "pushes past" messages fixed), and links to the windows and mac nightlies. Linux users should be able to get r1626 through svn.

EDIT: Build 1626 is now on the main page at rephial.org

Note to all -- if you get find traps, detect doors/stairs is redundant since find traps now does that to.


NEVER MIND

Someday I have to figure out why configure doesn't work on my linux machine.

I was working on competing, but level 47 at DL99 with 760,000 turns? I'll just go back to my realistic expectations

It's for the fun, not the glory

On the other hand, maybe we should make a hit list of players who are not allowed to start until the comp is half over. I'd start with
  • evariste
  • Psi
  • Cave Man
  • drchung
  • PowerDiver

Who's with me? The time of the mediocre is at hand.

Or just multiply their turns by 100 on upload so we feel like we're doing awesome

I'm not a fan of half-orcs or half-drool, er, trolls, so it's a good excuse to go back to my paladin
