 May 11, 2010, 02:29 #1 Nate Rookie   Join Date: Mar 2010 Posts: 19 Ring of speed range of values Wondering what the range of values for ring of speed is. I see d5M5 in obj.txt giving a range of +1 to +10 but something else must be going on since I see many rings greater than +10 in the ladder. +18 is the highest I've seen for v3.1.2. Is that a hard cap? Thank you. -Nate
 May 11, 2010, 02:59 #2 Derakon Prophet     Join Date: Dec 2009 Posts: 9,021 A ring of speed has a base modifier of 1d5 + a dlvl-dependent bonus of up to 5. After that, the game flips a coin. If it comes up heads, the modifier is increased by one and the coin is flipped again. It keeps repeating this until the coin comes up tails, with no limit. A ring of speed +18 would have to pass that coin flip check a minimum of 8 times (at odds of 1 in 256) and a maximum of 16 times (at odds of 1 in 65536).

 May 11, 2010, 03:36 #4 Sirridan Knight     Join Date: May 2009 Posts: 560 In theory, you can have a speed ring with a value in the hundreds which may go outside the bounds of the energy speed array, although I'm not sure if there is a check for that (there probably is). Although you're more likely to find ringil and the one ring on dlvl one. Anyway, the source you're looking for is: trunk/src/object/obj-make.c line 700 which is: Code: `while (randint0(100) < 50) o_ptr->pval++;` Edit: Chance of a +100 speed ring is somewhere on the order of 1x10^-25 or somesuch

Easy way to see: Fires up wizard mode...

Total speed maxes out at +89, so the second RoS+32767 is a waste of space 8-)

edit: oops, having actually tried wearing it (my first attempt used +255), the +32767 will overflow your baseline speed down to the negative cap (-110)

 May 11, 2010, 18:53 #6 Nemesis Adept   Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 137 I read somewhere that the most extreme Ring of Speed ever known to have been found in Angband had a bonus of fifty something. That bonus was however negative. I recall reading in the same text that twenty something was the highest positive bonus ever found.

That one might be the record. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=1420

If you want, I could program the borg to play deep dungeon and store all the rings of speed in the home and swap out the slowest rings.

Given enough time, the borg will find a large number of rings stored.

 October 28, 2010, 02:08 #9 Nate Rookie   Join Date: Mar 2010 Posts: 19 How does the dlvl-dependent bonus work? Does it reach a fixed value of 5 at some point? Or is 5 just more likely to come up at dlvl 100 vs dlvl 75? Is dlvl 127 better than dlvl 100 for this bonus? Thank you!
