By that logic, the most traditional Angband is probably something like Celeste or The Witness or some other game in a completely different genre.

I meant traditional in an historical sense there. Shall we say more retro then? Anyway, I believe that 4.0.5 is a major breakpoint in the evolution of the game and this bug breaks the entire device skill feature of this version. It's not exactly a minor bug.

3.2 was by far a bigger change. And while a number of the features introduced there have been roload back or toned down, not all of them have. 3.0 is significantly more difficult transfer versions.

Yes, I still play 3.1 occasionally. Always as a Ranger for the awesome bow damage and also for the challenge of giant packs of Zephyr hounds.

It doesn't actually break the entire device skill feature. In 4.0.5, as in previous versions of Angband, device skill affects your probability of activating a device. There is an intended, and in 4.0.5, non-functional change that does what your fix does, and the intended effect is apparent from device inspection.

Note: if you love giant packs of Zephyr hounds, you'll love Oangband (yes I am still on about this and it is the current comp so there).

Poor form. I would never derail this thread to complain about the endless sodding water hounds.
