A cosmetic issue that is not on the list yet --- Chaos Dragon Scale Mail has both a typo and wonky grammar in its description. Currently it reads

A suit of scales. Every shape, in every color imaginable, riot andcontend upon
its surface as you stare in fascination.

There should be a space between "and" and "contend". What's more, "[e]very shape [...] riot and contend" doesn't work grammatically. If anything it should perhaps be "riots and contends", but even then the whole thing sounds wonky to my ears, though I understand what it is trying to express.

"A suit of scales that ripples and twists through every color and shape imaginable as you stare in fascination." How's that?

This sounds perfect to me.

Since CUMBER_GLOVE has been removed, what good are alchemist's gloves? Maybe something should be added to make them a worthwhile item for fragile magic casters.

So I just copied my save game of my game before all this weird shit started happening. I pasted it into my documents folder as a backup. I closed Angband. I opened Angband, reloaded my game and it loads the DL72 version of events. So I close Angband, go into my documents folder, and cannot find the save file I just backed up there. So I figure, well, it's probably still in the clipboard, so I paste it, and it pastes the file, but it's not the date of the file I copied, it's the new save that was just written to my Angband folder. So I have no idea where the old back up of my DL85 game went. This is so extremely bizarre.

I was actually considering making a bunch of copies of the save file and placing them in multiple locations in case something bizarre like this occurred but I figured that would be excessive and neurotic....

Anyway, I have no desire to keep playing this character, even if it is a winning Ironman game. It will remain a complete mystery where the DL85 game went to. Mysteriously vanished and vanquished.

Hmm... maybe the ring I activated with the activation "does bizarre things" has overreached the boundaries of Angband.

Ha ha ha, it must be a new anti-save-scumming initiative.

Hm, next theory: your hard drive is dying or your filesystem is corrupt. Run a disk health check?

Not a bad idea Derakon. Not sure when I'll get around to it, though, pretty busy the next couple weeks.

Meanwhile, I have to report on more oddness about that previous game. So as I posted, I gave up ever resuming my DL85 Ironman game again when the save file seemed to inexplicably become overwritten. Another thing that happened that I didn't mention last night is that my character inventory window last night reverted to the DL72 inventory (it had been showing DL85). Last night I started up a new character (same name: New character from save game). And just now as I return to my game I see the inventory windows are displaying from the DL85 game again! Where is this info being loaded? Is it still possible to load the game and if so how the heck do I find where to load it??



Look closely at this image. What is amiss? Notice the inventory windows; then look at the program window that is shown as a thumbnail because I have the mouse hovering over the application icon. The game window is the main menu of Angband (indicating no game is currently loaded). Where are the game sub-windows being generated from??? Any ideas how I can locate the game window for those sub-windows? I notice that when I click on the main game window it pops up additional sub-windows (that are blank since no game is loaded). In other words, it does not look like the DL85 sub-windows are at all associated with the main game window. Yet, oddly, my taskbar is not showing any other Angband app open that might be associated with the DL85 sub-windows.

In short: it appears that there are two instances of Angband currently open (as fph suggested) yet the taskbar only shows one instance of Angbad open.

EDIT: I just pressed CTRL-ALT DEL and found the second instance of Angband! I glicked on 'Expand' and voila! I am in my DL85 game again! I saved the game. I then closed the visible instance of Angband and then 'end task'ed on the phantom DL85 instance of Angband. Relaunched Angband, loaded 'Grotug' and yes, it loaded DL85 version of game.

Deep Sleep

Are you supposed to be able to slow monsters, zap them with light, etc, and not wake them if you do no HP damage? I would have thought these things would wake them up.
