Haven't been on rephial lately, so I don't know if this is actually new... but I love the gameplay synopsis on the home page! Yay for advertising

I think my favorite new feature in 3.5 is the inclusion of Dubtrain's sound pack by default... the old sounds might have been fine in like 1993 or so, but nowadays they're just horrendous! :P

Oh, hey, just noticed something again that's always irked me about the description of the birth_no_stairs option... it says it "never" generates staircases back, but wouldn't it be more accurate to say that it never generates them *on the tile you start on*? Like, you can still find additional staircases back, can't you? It's not ironman...

Also, the screen seems rather flickery when browsing spells in tiles mode...

It's kind of confusing, too, that you can use the arrow keys in shops to select items, but what item you have selected is irrelevant... well, I guess it can be useful for folks with wide screens to keep the various rows in line, so they don't get confused about which item costs/weighs what...

Sorry for all the questions and stuff, but I haven't played Angband in a while! So what's it mean when a weapon says "with additional +8str and +0dex you would attack a bit faster"? It seems to be some sort of prerequisite for getting +0.1 blows? Does this mean you have +0.05 blows or something, so you have a 50% chance to get +0.1 blows?

Oh, hey, idea! It would be nice to put yellow squares or something around all monsters in tiles mode. Some of them look kind of like items! :P

Is there any reason you have to manually toggle the descriptions when browsing spells? Why not have them on by default?

Are Potions of Speed more uncommon?

I'm glad someone appreciates it.

Thanks for this.

You're right, it's confusing and I don't like it either.

Someone got annoyed. Ideally the game would just remember whether you wanted them on or off by default.

Where do bug reports go? Everytime I drop the Great Axe of Eonwe, it crashes the game =P it's quite repeatable, although discovering it the first time cost me about 2M XP and a couple of shiny new items, including a +2 EA MoD.

I'll have a look around and see if I can't find a place to file those.

Edit: Huh. Now a delayed crash after dropping Orome.

And no sign of a bug report option at rephial, or perhaps I'm just blind... I am playing a Dwarf, though...

Edit: Throwing it crashes too.

Bugs can go here. I've added it as #1811 (http://trac.rephial.org/ticket/1811). If you could post additional information or possibly a save file, that'd be helpful.

Yup, because if you generate the artifact with the debug command and drop it, the game doesn't crash. I suspect it has something to do with the "" in the artifact name, but maybe it's system-related (Win7 here).

I also use windows 7.

I'm reluctant to attach the savefile, because if I die, I'll be severely tempted to come back here, download it again, and pretend nothing happened, lol.

I suppose if that's the only way to get to the bottom of it, though, I'll send it along.

Or I would, if I didn't get this:
Code:
Upload Errors 
Krait:
Invalid File

How are you dropping it? Using 'd' or using the mouse-driven menus?

Mouse driven menus?

Heh. I've been playing since Moria. I'm far too used to the keyboard commands to switch to mouse control at this point - hell, I didn't even know there were mouse driven menus other then the windows ones.

In any case, yes, I'm using the "d" key. Throwing via "v" also crashed the game.

I backed up my savefile after killing Morgoth but before kinging, and while I can't seem to attach it to the forum post, I'll see about sending it to you.
