T-Engine4 / ToME4 beta15 unleashed!

As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta15 !

See http://tome.te4.org/ http://te4.org/ http://blog.te4.org/

Yes, beta15 comes out very quickly. It is mostly a bug-fix release but there is one real improvement that I wanted to share with you all: Saving speed has been greatly improved. People that had really terrible saving speeds of over two minutes for simple zones are now down to a few seconds.

Release highlights:

* Greatly improved saving time
* New game option to disabled background saving, this blocks the game while saving but improves save speed

Expanded changelist:

* Rewrote the data serializer, savefiles should be *much* faster
* New option to disable background saving
* Mage apprentice quets will now require only 10 items or an artifact staff/ring/amulet
* Fixed wands of illumination
* Fixed character description on the load screen
* Fix the Dragon Helm
* Update Tol Falas lore
* Old forest is now a bit brighter
* Much new Iron Throne lore
* Higher now have a life rating instead of a lite rating
* The Crypt of Kryl-Feijan will not pop before level 20
* Elisa will not end her quets multiple times
* Can not rush while pinned
* Bumping encounters on the worldmap triggers them
* Amulets of Mastery can provide bonuses to any trees
* Divine/Guardian talents have higher requirements
* Manasurge Rune now provides a small direct mana inscrease an a % increase of natural mana regen
* Two new world artifacts

Have fun!

- save times have greatly improved !

- Starting on Troll Shaws (2), all grass tiles where generated as black and don't show any info on the lower right ; Kor'Pul seemed to work ok down to (2)

- after trying that out, shops in Derth do not work any longer ... walked over to Zigur, and the armour smith worked.

- interestingly, in Derth armourer and weapon smiths door where ASCII, while in Zigur they load ok.

I'am afraid there was a bug in b15 that was introduced with the new uber saving :/ It did not happen on my computer .. grmf.

Anyway there is a beta15b that should fix it.

- .. just found a 2nd "Wintertide Phial" on Troll Shaws (1)

- "infravision radius 6" from "Wintertide Phial" seems to work in the world map: with it equipped, I was able to patrols moving in the fow area, up to 6 steps away; without, I wasn't ...

- E/I screen does not refresh encumbrance number upon dropping items

- monster view (TAB) does not take in account visibility range (light radius/infravision) in dungeons, but uses normal LOS
