PWMAngband 1.3.0 released

For those unfamiliar with PWMAngband, it's a multiplayer real-time variant of Angband based on MAngband 1.x with additions from ToME (features from the time it was still called PernAngband, but without the Pern references) and a few personal additions: new races, classes, monsters and items.

This release mainly ports the class changes from Vanilla 4.2 and adds a few features from MAngband.

See http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr for the downloads.

To play on a PWMAngband server or start your own server, download the binaries and unzip the files (client and server are both in the same zip file now). And enjoy!

Yay! http://tangaria.com/news/pwmangband-1-3-0-released/

--

1) minor /rfe add command to turn on night time in-game from admin menu or config file. For testing purposes.. I need to test light in towns and have to 'R' several minutes till I could do it

2)


How to get rid off terrain elements which you could see at night?Night should be dark i towns, other way it looks weird.

I thought it's TREE flag. Removed, didn't help. Then I removed PREFIXED, also it isn't. Even...
flags:NO_SCENT | NO_FLOW | TORCH
...is 'bright' at night. How to remove this option correctly? I could make all terrain objects like grass or building walls of course.. But maybe there is a _right_ way which you would recommend to work with such objects.

1) DM command added to advance time (1-12 hours)

2) I checked Angband's code, and there's no "flag" for terrain at night: the code simply always displays everything that is not a floor terrain. In PWMAngband, I added a flag called "FLOOR_BORING" to hide features at night such as water, mud, grass... This flag is only used in this case, so I'll simply rename it to "BORING" and it will be used for all features not only floors. Feel free to add the flag to any terrain feature you don't want to see at night. (this will be changed in build 2, if you want to try in build 1, use "FLOOR_BORING" for now, it will work)

What a dumbass... I managed to corrupt my whole source code by using search/replace in ALL FILES while I was meaning to replace a word in ONE FILE. Tried to cancel but it was too late... Now I will have to rollback all the work done since the release and redo everything...

What source control are you using? Sounds like you need to make commits more often.

It's called a VM
I simply code on my VM and copy to my main partition as commit. Fortunately I do that often, so no real problem. I just had to recode the new Dungeon Master debug command I added on Monday.

I'll do that once I finish porting the help files from V and release build 2.

By "copy to your main partition", does that include making a commit with a message? Sometimes you may need to roll back several prior commits to figure out what broke something. Please please please set up source control. Even a local Git repository with one branch is way better than just making copies of your code periodically.
