Competition 136

Competition 136 is now available from the competition page; it is an NPPAngband Dwarf Priest with benefits.

Note that comp 135 has just a few hours to go.

{Just wanted to check that there wasn't something majorly wrong with the comp or the savefile or something like that. It's a dwarf priest with good stats starting with Feanor on thier feet}.

RL gets in the way. I took one shot so far and died at cl25, dl25 when I drank an un'id'ed death potion. I was doing quests, but when I try again I may do fewer in favor of saving turns.

I am guessing the winner won't have to do quests, since they are already starting with +15 speed. It is probably best to dive.

But thanks. I just wanted to make sure everything was working OK.

(Not that I'm huge on competitions, but...)

It doesn't run on my Linux setup and at least one other person has reported that it doesn't run on theirs (posted elsewhere). I'm not sure what the distribution of Linux use is among the competition players, but this might have an effect on participation.

I am not able to get npp to work under Linux either. However the windows version seems to work well so far when i am using wine.

That might be a way to participate even if you are running Linux, but i have just played a level so far, so there might be problems later.

@Mytten - Which version of Linux? I had no idea this was a problem.

Ubuntu 12.10. I can compile npp, but when i try to load the competition save, or really any save game npp crashes. I will try to get a fault message when i get home tonight.

It seems to work well running the windows version in wine so far though.

<edit>
When i try to start with a savefile i only get these messages

Can't create a temporary file for notes

That seems to be a file sharing issue. I think the operating system needs permission to read and write to the folder. I personally used the --with-no-install option so the notes file and save files are written in the same directory that NPP is stored. It makes it easier to grant permission.

Well, this has been an interesting competition......mostly dead characters despite starting with Feanor and +15 speed, adn no winners. All other NPP comps have had multiple winners, despite all kinds of things to make the game harder, rather than easier.....

I am trying to draw a logical conclusion from this, but I can't. Unfortunately RL kept me from playing. Do any of the players have any theories?
