It still has some bugs, but less. I don't think there are many (if any) that cause crashes now, and the balance is mostly OK. There are some problems with hybrid dungeon mode still.

What's wrong with throwing in FAngband? I started a druadan warrior in angband.live, took Mighty Throw specialty at the beginning and was lucky enough to find some enchanted spears and throwing axes of shocking. But they do miss all the time. I don't think I've gotten one hit in and I've tried again and again. Bows work normally.

Character is leveled up to CL 21 and has 18/100 something STR and 13 DEX. Axes are supposed to do about 80 dmg but this way, they're useless. Well not completely useless, one of those axes currently serves as my melee weapon.

That's the nightly beta, right, not 1.4.4?

In angband.live, I cannot choose the version to play. It's 1.4.4 by default.
In character dump the version is not shown at all, except in the file text:

Ah, OK (the 2.0 beta is if you select firstageangband).

The answer is that in 1.4.4 only assassins and (to a lesser extent) rogues are any good at throwing in the early game. Warriors will get better later.

Thanks.

To me, it was a transparent mechanic. Or I just assumed because I did not read warrior class description. Is the 'gets better later' mentioned there? Throwing matters greatly in the early game (if it is effective) and I would've never chosen Throwing bonuses for starting skill, had I known this.

From your answer, I take it that this is somehow fixed in 2.0.dev-version?

Possibly. If not, complain

I think throwing was actually bugged in 1.4.4 and didn't work, compared to my experience of O.

I have never had a throwing weapon hit in FA 1.4.4, if its the same code copied its probably bugged. I'll try with a rogue in 2.0 later.
