I wonder if the comp 216 winners will break 10K turns this time around.

I tried this, but I just find it unplayable with "run" currently broken. I'll wait until Nick has time to fix that.

I would suggest using the first of the older builds on the nightlies page (Windows, macOS, source), which should not have the run bug.

Probably not. We used broken mechanisms (Blackguard, Paladin, Rogue) to achieve those stupid turncounts, I don't think it will be possible with a druid, but we'll see...

As Nick's said use an older version to avoid the run bug. I'm pretty sure all recent game play changes were necromancy or shield bash e.g. nothing that effects the druid.

There was a fairly recent change which will affect XP for first casting of spells, but the builds I quoted upthread have that change (and in fact are only missing a couple of minor bug "fixes").

Gwarl, since you have specified the character, the lack of a savefile looks like a bug on the competition page. As Ingwe mentioned in #216:

"Maybe make a notation on the Competition description that there is no starting save file even though the page has a download starting save file link."

Okay I changed the version on .live to what I deduce was the last build before the running bug was introduced. (Notably, it seems to not have been Nick's fault).

Which is what nightly version, for those downloading and playing off-line? The "variant" listed on the comp page remains the broken one. (Though I plan to play on-line and wouldn't mind a comp with on-line required).

4.1.3-212-g09fdd8c25 is the pre-bug version, which is the one I linked in post 3 of this thread.

The running bug is confusing because
  • it's a coding error found by someone else
  • it's clearly an error
  • but fixing the error creates the running bug.

Further complicated by the fact that I'm spending all my (regrettably little) Angband time on feature/monster.
