Store Menu?

The last time I played Angband regularly it was maintained by Ben Harrison... so I'm sort of old-school when it comes to commands and such.

One of the things I find really disconcerting about the new game is the lack of a command bar at the bottoms of Stores. I realize that the way Stores work now is probably streamlined to be "better," but I really don't like it. Is there a way for me to put that back, via options? If not, is there anyone who's interested in coding the old store menu back?

Completely unrelated, but I can remember the very first time I played Sinistar at a 7-11 store of all places. You're peacefully shooting enemy ships and mining those little sparkley bits and then all of a sudden "I am Sinistar. Beware, I live." Then it come out of nowhere and eats you. It's actually a little scary the very first time he comes after you... or at least it was as I remember it. {me goes to fire up MAME}

Yeah, Sinistar was definitely one of the most memorable old-school arcades.

Actually I think he was creepiest when you *weren't* playing... just walking along trying to choose which cabinet next and allofasudden Sinistar's attract mode shouts at you "I HUNGER!!"

...somehow, .wav files just don't capture the joy-stick gripping terror of the Original Big Bad waking up to come devour you.

But anyways... anything on-topic?

Duderini, how did we get to discussing Sinistar?? (Presumably there was some reference in a sig or avatar? I have all that turned off to keep the SNR up.)

Is there a way to turn off Stacking of staves & wands in Stores?

I don't mind it in Inventory, but I find (especially at early levels) that the most economic way to Identify is to buy a Staff of Perception, use it up, and resell it. To my dismay, I discovered that selling a Staff (0 Charges) to the store lowers the average number of charges per staff (and price, but I'd happily pay more for more charges).

No, but what version are you playing? There was a change made so that staves are recharged when you sell them back, so it isn't so terrible any more. I don't know whether that was in 3.1.2v2. You might need to download a nightly version.

v3.0.9b

According to (uhm... wherever I downloaded it from..?) it's the most stable version as of about 10 days ago.
