I thought you did not find trickery because I saw you are carrying a CON potion which seemed less useful for me (CON is maxed out and 3 armor pieces sustain CON - yeah I know sustain does not protect against time hounds). But it's true I just see the current setup and not the various states when you had to make decisions.

Anything I was carrying at that point wasnt necessarily my end gaer, just stuff i had been gathering while wandering around. I probably just hadnt noticed the con potion yet but yeah its useless now

So I picked this game up after a couple of months. A fast refresher, I destroyed him by accident. Waited an insane amount of time for him to respawn. In the meantime killed every unique so that when he reappeared I was woefully low on consumables and scrolls, I would not have beaten him.

So after all my complaining about him not coming back, what do I do? *Destroy * him again, this time on purpose. I swear I used many dozens of sat. hunger scrolls. I wtried a couple of times a couple months back but no dice. Finally tonight after maybe 2 months I thought id give it another shot and sure enough he obliged me and I beat him.

So the most boring ironman tale ever but satisfying nonetheless for me because Id come so close (his last * a couple of times) to beating him but my first time in ironman game.

Now Im having trouble dumping my charcter though. I pull up my character "C" then choose f but I am getting this error - The Angband Ladder - reading your character...

reading chardump, please wait...
error!! is this really character dump?

Does anyone know what im doing wrong? I did it once before but I forget how, Im sorry. Im afraid if I kill the character now it will be lost forever. No urgency or anything, going to start a new game and go for speed from now on. Which you'd never know from this game but is how I usually like to play

I dont want to start a new thread for something that has probably been covered ad nauseum but Id like to try the latest version once i dump my character. Do you lose all your data from older versions? I dont care once I dump the character, just would rather wait until the character is dumped.

You can post your character in this thread. Not seeing the char dump, it is a bit hard to guess what went wrong. You can start a new character from scratch. You won't lose monster lore; you will need to reset any options. Make sure to update birth options ibefore picking stats.

It's a little hard to tell without more info. If you look at the file you're trying to post, does it look like a character dump? It's possible you're choosing the wrong file - it should be <charcter name>.txt in your user directory.

If everything looks correct, attach or paste it into this thread so others can check for problems.

Ok thanks guys. I'll try sorting it out Im probably missing something simple if not then Ill post it here, cheers. Looking forward to trying the update. I read some posts a while back when it was rolled out and the consensus seemed to be that Morgoth was harder.
If there is one thing I've learned it is that runes of protection are very good when meleeing him, maybe it's luck but I seem to get a lot of extra shots at him when im on one and he just moves.
Anyway, thank you, Ill figure it out, i did once already so Im just forgetting something.
