Angband 4.2.1

Angband 4.2.1 is now available for Windows, macOS and as source. It can be downloaded from Github or rephial.org, and played at angband.live.

This version is maybe best described as consolidating the big changes made in version 4.2.0. Again, there are too many individual changes to list, so this is a summary.
  • percentage combat is refined to become an actually playable option
  • improvements to throwing
  • update to town generation
  • a major update to the new blackguard class
  • several tweaks to the other new classes
  • many improvements to the MacOS front-end particularly, but also others
  • improvements to tiles
  • addition of fancy color-cycling of monsters
  • configurability of character sheet
  • inclusion of some new, rare level types
  • experimental Windows curses and SDL2 console ports added
  • many small bugs fixed and quality-of-life improvements made

Thanks to everyone who helped in getting this version done. Enjoy!

There are some instructions in ui_entry.txt; it's quite complicated.

Yesterday I noticed a couple of things about the Shockbolt tileset. Mithril Bolts are invisible.

Makar and Measse tiles are cut. I think this one is difficult to fix, because their tiles are outside the zone of the double size tiles, mixed with single size tiles.

Are the Shockbolt Darkmode lovers really happy with floor tiles being dead black? I've long favored the Gervais tiles but I do admire the extra realism and detail of the Shockbolt tiles and would like to give them a fair try. Lightmode, particularly the floor, looks like desert and doesn't give me an Angbandy feeling. Darkmode looks better except for the floor tiles, I would think that a darker version of the Lightmode tiles, or a gray, would be better.
