comp 159

Comp 159 is up. It's an xangband whatever-you-want run.

I was loathe to specify a save file for this game because there may be several things that are broken; I ran into this problem when making a save file for unangband, for example, since there's only so far I can play ahead.

GLHF! And good luck to the comp 158 players who still have 10hrs or so to go.

As far as I can tell, there has never been an XAngband competition before.
And I guessed why as soon as I tried to connect to the XAngband web page...

Has anyone found any sort of monster list at all? Not knowing what kind of "weird stuff" might be added I find myself looking around at every monster often, which is a pain.

Small warning for an autosquelch bug (not 100% confirmed, but very likely):

I squelched Rods of Light, and finding another Rod of Lightning Balls also autodestroyed it.

The fact that the pref file says "^rod of light" indicates a rather simple approach to regexes, I haven't tried with "^rod of light$" yet, so no idea if that is supported or not.

Just a heads up.

Yeah, uh, is the maintainer aware that it is hacked?

Possibly not. This variant hasn't been updated in years....

Congrats to, uh, me I guess for winning comp 159. Congrats also to Finan, who also nabbed a win, and to hjklyubn who was a hair away from taking the whole thing.
