Comp 209

For the new version of PosChengband we're playing an unwon race (balance drake) with an unwon school of magic (domination). And we have permanent aggravation.

Sounds like a balanced competition.

I just noticed that Compo 209 is not available on Angband.live...is that because of the recording issue? (The fact that it's not available via Angband.live should NOT change it from continuing as the current competition.)

Edit -
Nevermind. Gwarl (on Angband.live) says Compo 209 will be available on Angband.live.

Aggravation plus domination realm? Ouch, that's a nasty combo.

AFAIK aggravation makes charm spells (a lot of what Domination does) fail, and it makes the Cult of Personality effect far worse -- about half of affected summons just get turned friendly instead of becoming pets, but aggravate will immediately turn those friendlies right back into enemies.

NOTE: Playing this mode will overwrite your poschengband savefile. To continue a competition run, choose poschengband 7 from the game menu.

^ smh

And Gwarl, can you please email me my current PCB 7.0 savefile on Angband.live...Yes, it's crashy, I know. Email it to me at YggdrasilTid@gmail.com I want a copy of it so that I can give it to Chris to check out. I might be putting any further PCB 7.0 Angband.live attempts on the backburner until I get a copy of crashy save.

This just took the sinister aspect of PosChengband to a whole new level!

Hey, I get this error when loading Competition 209 on the webserver:
Code:
execvp(3) failed.: No such file or directory
What's up with that?

Apparently, once I "play" Compo 209, it then replaces the PCB 7.0 savefile right away? Is that right/

yeah the error wasn't intended but doesn't really matter. Trying to play comp 209 loads your savefile into poscheng 7, meaning it is possible to play the competition, which is all I was going for this time round.
