Agreed, that doesn't seem right.

In my variant, I have ported the Phial of Undeath, which is cursed and has a base cost of 0. With this fix, any character can tell immediately which Phial is which, since Undeath will appear at the bottom of the list while Galadriel will not... I think we should use a base cost for all special artifacts (since real cost is not used anyway...)

Hi all, new player here! I recently started playing Angband, and got a bit confused regarding the birth_ai_learn option. The documentation reads, "This option makes the game very difficult and is not recommended." However, I see that this is the default, and most players that I saw on the Ladder seem to play with it enabled. Should the documentation be updated?

To me, the quick solution would be to set the cost of the Phial of Undeath to be the same as the Phial of Galadriel; then they'd look the same until touched. The previous behavior, having the kind's cost be zero for special artifacts which don't have a base object kind iin object.txt, led to what Ugramoth mentioned. That seems undesirable for both of your Phials - until touched they end up sorted with the worthless items in the object list.

Andy--
The option is pretty much fixed. It no longer means monsters spam self-heal. (Back when, I tried that once as a paladin, and couldn't get Morgoth below 5 stars.)

After playing a bunch of games without any issues, my last game started to have some lag. Finished that game and started another one and the lag was still there. So I restarted my computer. At first the lag was gone but then it returned and now, for some inexplicable reason, the lag is worse, and now the beachball of death comes on the screen for about 15 seconds or so.

I always play with it on but that's likely the product of experience. When my kid started playing I turned it off for her so she could develop some comfort with the game without it being quite so challenging right off the bat (it's still difficult enough).

Sorry if this has already been reported... unless I'm blind and just missing it, I have a level with no down staircase. Fortunately I'm not playing ironman so I can just go up again, but this would be a problem with must-descend on... :-)

This is an old bug that was assumed fixed - thanks for reporting.
