Do you play windows OS and exit by clicking on the 'X' in the corner? (As I keep doing, even though I know I shouldn't)

Beric Dondarrian's sword certainly wouldn't burn indefinitely, though I think it got fueled by blood not oil.

You already have your hands on the keyboard, and hit key combos all the time. Why wouldn't you just hit CTRL+X?

But further to Matt's point, Nick found that the knowledge saving routine wasn't called if you didn't exit the game correctly, and that he couldn't trigger it if you closed the game by the 'X' in the corner. All other methods should now be working though.

Maybe we should disable the x in the main window? Allow alt-f4, file-exit, and ctrl-x.

Because there's a standard way of closing programs on Windows, and that's not it. I mostly remember to use File -> Exit now, but when I'm quitting Angband prior to shutting the computer off I'm often closing half a dozen other programs/files at the same time, and it's hard to always remember to close all but one of them with the X and then switch to doing something different for Angband even though it looks like a standard window and it used to be fine to close it that way in 3.5.

(Is there really no way to have the lore file update when you exit that way? The game does autosave if you do it, so the situation must be handled somewhere in the code.)

Aah, that makes sense. I never leave Angband open when I'm not playing it, and I never turn my PC off.

I don't know how they've implemented the whole lore thing, but it seems to me that it should be possible. I'd suspect that it might require changing how a whole section works though.

I have randarts on, but artifacts preserved, yet my artifact list is also getting populated with items I haven't found/IDed ... does anyone know if I'm losing these by leaving the level, or is it a display issue but the artifacts are still prone to reappearance at some point?

Just found a randart Star with no activation - is that supposed to be possible?

Update 1f03be2 fixes:
  • All the tile redraw problems, I think - I was aiming to fix the detached heads thing, and seem to have accidentally fixed the cursor issue as well.
  • Non-use of the plural for noticing brand on multiple bolts
  • Crash from selling ignored stuff to a shop - the fix is not to drop it, which means it's carried until something else triggers a drop (or you drop it manually)

The artifact knowledge thing is definitely a bug, and tehre is likely an easy fix, but I haven't verified it yet. The windows closing thing - I'll have a look and see if I can do anything. Randart star with no activation - I thought I had made that impossible, apparently not.

I am playing on Windows but I almost always use ctrl-x to close. I won't say every time but it's very close to that.
