Bug: can see monster, monster term doesn't show it.

I see Ariel, visible monsters screen doesn't show it.

Don't know if this is known bug. Made backup-copy of the savefile from that position. This is from first turn in the level after recall. No-one has moved yet.

[edit] As soon as I did something (swapped weapons) Ariel appeared into monster screen. Was using blessed weapon with ESP, swapped to Anduril.

Yeah, I've seen this before as well. There's a failure to update somewhere. Usually a ctrl+r will fix it, sometimes though that won't work either. It usually happens when first arriving on a level, but I've also seen it elsewhere. It hasn't been a huge concern to look for it because a lot of this is getting rewritten in the restructure.

I have also seen color-changing monsters sometimes pick up black as color making it practically invisible to main screen. You know that there is monster only from the fact that you don't see the floor dot there. I don't recall seeing that in 3.4.1. Hope that that too goes away in restructure.

I see this all the time while testing - it happens on landing from recall or teleport. I think I saw the cause at some point too (some form of failure to refresh).

I imagine after the restructure most old bugs will be gone and there will be a whole array of new ones. My rough plan is to put out a release with all the structural changes but (close to) the same gameplay as 3.5, and allow it to be played a bit to get some of the kinks ironed out. Then the changes will start

[3.5.0] Monster list bug

Dear developers,
i am unsure if this will help. Sometimes (very rarely) i encountered the same bug. Monster list is not actual when entering a new Level. So far i can remember i always had ESP / telepathy active when this happened to me.
Cheers,
Tibarius
