Exclamation [Light Source Bug?] Angband 4.1.3





It seems like this the third time this has happened (I think it happened once in the previous version). My light source will stop working right around the level 20's, no matter what light source I use.

Or is this a feature due to cursed weapon usage?

This has been reported sporadically, but I've never been able to track it down.

Surely a save file will show what happened, if not how.

How do I send my save file then? Both Nayla and Sparrow are affected. I'm going to try one more run with Manfor, and if happens again... I'll just assume my copy of Angband is broken (and that I'm somehow to blame for the problem), and ask that where I can find a legit source for the game, and how much it will cost.

I enjoy the game, but I'm sad that this is happening.

Hit the reply button, and then below the reply box there are additional options, one of which is manage attachments. Then zip your savefile and add it.

What I mean is I don't know how to zip my savefile... I don't even think that's possible on my computer. I mean I can unzip things automatically because that's just how my computer works?! But I don't know how to do anything the other way around.

If it's Windows, right click on the file and choose "send to" and then "compressed (zipped) folder".

And stop calling 40 old.

Oh! I've never noticed that feature! In other words, I've never had to perform such an action, so I didn't even know it existed. That's so easy! Wow! Computers are really neat!

-Laughs.- Well when I don't know simple things like this, I sure feel old and obsolete.

Anyways, here's both Nayla (the most recent occurrence) and Sparrow's save files. It literally just happened with Nayla right after I got recalled back up during a fight with ogres. My light source was working fine then, but I noticed it when I was recalled back to town, because suddenly my light wasn't working anymore.
