Comp 205

Comp 205 is up. It's a half-orc priest, played on the bleeding edge nightlies that are the candidate for a 4.1 release.

I'm sure Nick and others will find your whinging constructive feedback to be useful, so please dump your observations in this thread or on your character uploads. Hopefully Nick will drop by to outline what changes he's specifically looking for more insight on.

I'm not sure if turning off connected stairs in the birth options was intentional? Either way too late to change it now :P I'm off to a good start

Yes, most competitions run without connected stairs so that stairscumming isn't possible.

All the new stuff, basically - traps, curses, ID, monster pathing, new dungeon gen, new vaults, cone breaths, terrain.

That is a lot of things! Cone breaths sounds neat.

Some early stuff:

1) Backspace doesn't work in my terminal (I use rxvt in cygwin), similarly the fancy letters like in Smeagol's name don't display properly either.

2) I use termcast.org and sometimes I get disconnected while playing, in Poschengband this kills the process but the game is auto-saved before and I can keep playing. With Vanilla, there is no auto-save and the process doesn't get killed so I have to do it myself. I've been told the signal that is sent is likely "SIGHUP"

3) Trying to remove curse on an amulet of teleportation doesn't seem to work, it shows "random teleportion" but I'm not sure how to select it and the scroll doesn't get used, since this is probably the first cursed thing people will run into it's a bit confusing.

4) You can sell ID for consumables but not for equipment, it seems like you end up carrying a bunch of {??} jewellery early on which is "eh." Maybe it's just my playstyle but I'd rather sell for ID instead of lugging a bunch of stuff around in my pack.

Should I be playing the master branch? The commit hash is the same as the latest nightly build but I'm on version 4.0.3 instead of 4.0.5.

Watch out for stone-d dragons.

Paralysis traps need looking at. Had something close to a "you step, you die" moment.

What kind of font are you using?

Both have essentially the same (obsolete ) way of dealing with signals, in particular, both (try to) ignore SIGHUP ,so it's probably SIGPIPE or something. But Vanilla doesn't do that if WINDOWS is defined (#ifndef WINDOWS (deal with signals) #else (dont) #endif). How did you install it?

Yes, it should be 4.0.3.
