You might have to turn on the mouse movement option ('=' and then '1', I think).

In the case referenced, the ?Recall was read at the character's current max depth (DL5), so recall was set to that. Then the character read ?DD, and went to DL10. Then the recall kicked in, sending the character back to town - but the recall didn't get reset to DL10 because ?Recall was never read at DL10.

minor information leakage in 4.1.2

I notice two minor issues with 4.1.2 while playing the current competition. I have a savefile that demostrats both issues, but unfortunately the zip file is 266K, which exceeds the forum's limit for uploads. I'm happy to provide it, if someone would suggest the proper method of transfer.

Uthlob has cast "Clairvoyance" on the current level. As can be seen in the savefile, there are a number of red asterisks showing the location of objects. However, if you attempt to move the cursor to these objects by 'l'ooking at them, you find that you can do it with some, but not with others. It turns out, the asterisks that you cannot 'l'ook at are in fact objects that have been squelched. This seems like information that should not be being "leaked" to the player.

Secondly, in the savefile, Uthlob is standing on top of a Broad Sword with an unknown curse. Nearby in the same room is an unidentified Lead Filled Mace (as shown by hitting the ']' key). Uthlob casts "Perception" (i.e. p-f-c), and learns the curse. The Lead Filled Mace is now also identified (as shown by hitting the ']' key). This also works after drinking a Potion of Enlightenment: ID'ing one object, ID's all the revealed objects on the entire level.

You could upload it to something like Dropbox and then post a link to the file.

OK, thanks, both confirmed.
