I had copied my save file to another computer when I noticed these issues. After copying my save file back to the original computer the unique monster knowledge is correct but the artifact menu still has extras.

When looking at your inventory in a store/home the store/home inventory is blacked out behind the first quiver slot but visible behind any subsequent slots which gets confusing when the lines run together.

What is the "something else" that triggers a drop? Clearly it's not movement, melee, leaving a store, or any number of other things I've tried. It looks to me like the only way to get rid of an {ignored} item in @'s pack is to manually drop it. What am I missing? Is this intended?

Edit: Okay, I'm mystified. Sometimes when I ignore something it drops right away, sometimes it stays in the pack until I manually drop. I'll have to pay more attention to exactly what the differences are.

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.
Love what your doing, Nick - much, much gratitude!

However...

...this latest update is unplayable for me, I'm afraid. Using Windows7 and Shockbolt, the flicker is so intense that after 10 minutes of playing my eyes are literally starting to ache! So I've had to stop playing tonight.
It may even be dangerous to certain players with, e.g., epilepsy (*warning* - utterly non-medical opinion here).

Am I the only one with this problem? If so, it must be my computer deciding that I've spent far too much time playing Angband recently.

Is this only since the last update? I was a bit worried about flicker - a couple of the solutions I tried actually had more...

Certain actions will trigger the game to check through your gear to see if there's anything that can be ignored and dropped. The main one is picking something up, but also getting pseudo-ID, inscribing something, uninscribing something, wielding something, and so on.

Yep, just since the last update. Every movement causes a noticable redraw. It's a bit like those early Edwardian 'What the Butler Saw' flicks (only I doubt any butler ever saw what my Half-Troll Ranger was doing to some poor kobolds...)

Sounds like a double-buffering problem to me. Not that I've even glanced at the drawing code.

Just got a crash in 4c26520, not sure exactly why. The last thing I did was step on a summoning trap (which must have been created by a monster when I wasn't paying attention, since it was a corridor I'd walked along earlier). The summons that I saw were Beorn and an orc captain, but I didn't have See Invisible equipped so there may have been something else there too. The crash was just a generic "Angband.exe has stopped working".

Update 6e285e6 implements PowerWyrm's latest fixes, and attempts to fix the flicker problem - please report back on flicker status.

When it's actually up, of course.
