Angband 4.0.0 bugs

I thought I'd wait until after you'd released to mention that you still have to resize tiles when you load up a game (with Shockbolt anyway). Sorry!

Oh, and randarts seem to be playing up again. I just found this in the artifact.spo:

Code:
the Blue Dragon Scale Mail of Barnorme (+6,+0) [12,+28] <+3, +1>
----------------------------------------------------------------
+3 strength.
+3 dexterity.
+3 constitution.
Provides immunity to lightning, frost.
Provides resistance to acid, fire, poison gas, light, dark, sound, shards,
nexus, nether, chaos, disenchantment.
Provides protection from fear, blindness, confusion.
Sustains intelligence, wisdom.
Grants telepathy.  
Radius 1 light.

When activated, it allows you to breathe chaos or disenchantment for 220
damage.
Takes 188 to 276 turns to recharge.
Your chance of success is 46.2%


Min Level 100, Max Level 127, Generation chance 1, Power 839, 9.0 lbs
Based on Nentelion.
'Based on the famous 'Nentelion', eh?

I'm playing with the 'keep previous set of randarts' option off (the fact that it is defaulted to 'on' is a bug, in my opinion - surely most randart players want a fresh new set each game, with the option upon death of keeping the old set?), and I think what is happening is that each new set is built off the old set. I don't know if this is intended behaviour or not. Personally I quite like the idea that the more iterations of a dynasty you play, the more divergent from the standarts your artifacts get. There does seem to be a trend, however, that each iteration makes the great ones better and the poor ones worse...

When I'm playing a ranger I always check the randart set upon death (in this instance due to a room full of dark elf priests - bastards) because if there aren't at least some decent randart bows (with a decent generation chance), then the whole dynasty is shafted. Maybe the randart generation code should check for at least 3 bows, or something?

Oh, and finally, most cursed randarts simply cannot ever appear (as I understand it) due to their min and max depths. See below:

Code:
the Jewel Encrusted Crown 'Tumor' [0,-16]
-----------------------------------------
Heavily cursed.
Provides resistance to dark.
Provides protection from blindness.
Cannot be harmed by acid.


Min Level 11, Max Level 3, Generation chance 10, Power 4, 4.0 lbs
Based on Ephel.

The period is missing at the end of the '?' description for the Door Creation spell. All classes affected.

I've also had several crashes during melee, but for unknown and not easily replicable reasons.

Ephel?

I need to start playing 4.0, because apparently there are new items there.

Tiny nitpick: For the Ranger instance of the Shield spell, dice: and desc: are duplicated in class.txt

Don't have a ranger so I can't check whether this causes any visible effects when '?'-ing the description.

Technically not really a bug, but I think requires fixing nevertheless:
I picked up a wand of stinking cloud and the description read something like: 'It does 12 points of damage increased by 30%.'
Because I know that device skill gives bonus damage, I knew what that meant, but for a new player this is just confusing.
So great job for making the damage bonus accessible to players but please change the flavor text to something like:
'It does 12 points of damage. Due to your device skill, this is increased by 30%.'

Any crash is bad, and any info you can give in tracking them down is appreciated.

Thanks for all the rest, too - they'll be filed.

"the Jewel Encrusted Crown 'Tumor' [0,-16]"

No wonder why with such a name it is cursed...
