To be clear: with forced-descent on, you can't ever go up or replay the current level. Word of Recall always takes you to max depth + 1, and you can't recall from level 99 until Sauron is dead, or level 100 until Morgoth is dead.

Which is why I didn't turn it on As cool as this experiment is, I also don't want newbies to feel totally locked out of an angband comp. Forced descent is pretty brutal!

I also didn't realize that forced descent would be required to get a really good grasp on these changes, which was def an oversight on my part.

It's ok, I can test it out myself. We all know I only care about my own opinion anyway.

That does sound brutal, I don't think I'd be ready for that yet. I hardly know what anything is past DL 50 or so

@Fizzix I'm having fun

yeah, it's identical to the comp character, except it has randarts, no-selling and forced descent.

To answer my own question: yes it is.

For some reason this setup is tiny compared to normal 3.5.0. I am trying to make it look like 3.5.0, but changing the font size to the default of 3.5.0 (16x24X) only affects the shop numbers, it doesnt inflate the dungeon map.

Tile multiplyer is 1x1, same as in 3.5.0, so I dont want to change that. How do I get the good 3.5.0 angband size ?

Edit: posted at same time as Fizzix´s answer.

Edit 2: After getting stuck in the jungle of options for an hour, checking "enable nice graphics" seems to have done the trick.

Oh, the competition savefile has selling enabled, I was wondering why I hadn't gone much above 30000 gold all game. The balance on that seems fine...
