A problem that rose while looking at my variant's players feedback about sounds: Win client allows multiple sounds to be played at once, but SDL client doesn't allow it. This can be problematic when you use special sounds for status ailments so that you always know when you're confused or blind for example. With SDL client, it's easy to "miss" those audio cues as anything will interrupt them. A solution would be to convert the mp3 files to ogg since snd-sdl module already knows how to play sounds from ogg files and the problem doesn't occur when using Mix_PlayChannel().

When you fail to remove a curse, you get duplicate info when inspecting the object:
- "Can be destroyed if you attempt to remove its curses" (from the "fragile" flag)
- "Attempting to uncurse it may destroy it." (from the describe_curses() method)

I think the second redundant message can be removed.

When you aim a pile of wands/use a pile of staves with 0 charges, the message is "The staff/wand has no charges left". Maybe it should be: "The staves/wands have no charges left."

I think the message is probably correct as is because, while you may have a stack in inventory, or a pile on the floor, the @ can only aim or use one at a time of the wands or staves in such stack or pile.

I don't know, that sounds right to me. You looked in your inventory, you carefully inspected every one in the stack, checking if they had charges left, and then concluded none does. "The staves/wands have no charges left."

I prefer to think of my stack of 6 -Annihilation as bundled together into one big Gatling Wand.

I sure use 'em that way...

In case people missed this thread, we're back (almost no thanks to me) to having regular development version builds for Windows and macOS. The latest builds can always be downloaded from the Github release page; it contains the most recent Windows and macOS builds, as well as zipfile and tarball of source.

I never noticed this before, but how is it that killing the Witch King of Angmar is worth more experience than killing Sauron?

Technically, because the Witch-King got moved 5 levels deeper in 4.2
