Correct me if I'm wrong... but didn't we used to be able to unignore categories of things ~(e.g. magic gloves) by hitting shift-K, going over them and using the <K> command off the floor, then hitting shift-K to un-unignore, thereby unignoring the category in question? If you see what I mean...

Doesn't seem to work in 4.1

(Unless I'm going nuts, which is possible)

Shift-K toggles the view of ignored things. To unignore the objects themselves, you first use Shift-K to make them visible, then use k on them exactly as you did to ignore them in the first place. That will bring up the context menu to unignore just the object or the whole category; if you choose only to unignore the object after previously ignoring the category, it does nothing (that IS a bug, the effect probably should be to inscribe the item with !k or the like). I just loaded up 4.1 to test; this works.

Another method for bulk-unignore is to bring up the = menu, and then use the item ignoring setup submenus. For ignored specific item types (e.g., potion of boldness, as opposed to average body armor or the like), the ignore/unignore functionality is also available from the autoinscription submenu.

There's an information leak in targeting, since the targeting line drawn can be blocked by unseen obstacles.

Some quick poking around in the projectiles code seems to indicate it may be possible to add a new PROJECT_* flag that only stops for seen obstacles. I'll hack around a bit at some stage and see what I can come up with.

edit: seemed to work ok, githubbed now

Due to a regrettable oversight, I found myself on my last few dozen turn of lamplight and started magically lighting the dungeon to save them for emergencies. Thus an observation that the illumination spell should probably be tweaked to light up walls like the spear of light spell does.

Playing an ironman game, I ignored all money. However, ignored money is picked up when it is moved over, unlike all other objects. In real life I would never complain about invisible money landing in my pocket automatically, but...

It's a distinction without a difference, and besides, I like the feature. I tend to ignore money at some point, even in non-ironman games. Nonetheless, it is nice that it is picked up anyway, just in case I decide to buy something with it in such a non-ironman game.

Gotcha. No biggie - just wasn't sure that was the intended and/or desired behavior. Surprise money is a good thing!

Minor niggles:

Confusion attacks (bedlam in this case) can give "It looks confused" for targets that are out of LOS

and on the other hand

Spear of Light spells give out-of-LOS messages for creatures you should (now) be able to see

-

Also, confusion doesn't seem to be stopping monsters from using spells
eg
Quote:
The ogre shaman conjures up scary horrors
...
The ogre shaman is no longer confused
-

I think there must be a logic inversion in the item generation algorithm. So far I have found 3 of the useful dungeon spellbooks way OOD, and none of the other class. If the RNG was working properly these would all be the useless class.

-

I currently have an 'unidentified object' sorted to the middle of the item list rather then the end. When I get there I'll note what it is. I'm sure this is leaking some sort of info it shouldn't.

.. I think it was an item that had been picked up by something?

Interesting question. It would probably be preferable for it to stay removed - I may make that happen at some point.

For everyone, thanks for all the stuff posted to this thread. I'm leaving bugs to pile up for a bit (non seem game-breaking yet), but I will get to them eventually.
