It should show up in the store if it's marked a town book, such as this:

book:magic book:town:[Path of the Mage]:7:arcane

I found that. But in the game in the store it says for example:

40 Books of Necromantic Tomes [Into the Shadows]


I am trying to find how to change the Necromantic Tomes which I can't do. Is that something hard coded elsewhere and can't be edited?

It appears to be hardcoded, sorry.

Using stone to mud on the wall next to the door should let it out too though.

So I was feeling in the mood for Angband, downloaded the latest version, and have been playing it for a bit, but I've been running into a lot of glitches in the UI, and haven't been able to track down any threads or bug reports on the tracker about them.

Currently running 4.1.3 on Windows 7.

Examples include:
  • I'm running a hobbit ranger. My weight on the character screen is "4st 1lb". This never seems to change.
  • When browsing a book, hitting ? to show spell details creates a textbox below the spell list. Hitting ? again to hide the details, however, doesn't properly hide the spell details. Rather, it leaves one text line visible. This line changes as you move through the spells in the list. Hitting ? again will show the complete description.
  • Current AC in the sidebar area often gets wiped partially or completely. As in, the only text showing is "Cur", and switching screens displayed doesn't bring it back. This often happens in combat, but I haven't worked out steps to reproduce. It gets fixed when changing dungeon levels.
  • Text to the right of the main map area does not get cleared properly. An easy example is walking into a shop and seeing the top line, "General Store (30000)". Exit the shop, and the right-most ")" remains on screen. In some instances of this happening, I can see the last character of a whole inventory worth of text rows. This can be cleared by switching to the character screen and returning to the main map.

I don't remember if I encountered any other such glitches. The above list are the memorable ones.

The "4st 1lb" thing probably means "4 stones and 1 pound", or 57 pounds (~26kg). That doesn't sound that outlandish for a child-sized adventurer.

Just to clarify, the 4.1 st weight doesn't change because that's the weight of the character at the start of the game, not the character's current weight wearing armor and carrying inventory items. That weight is displayed in the lower left of the character screen.

Ah. Had forgotten that was even a measure of weight to consider. I don't remember it being used before; from what I remember, it was always listed just in pounds.

Also, had another glitch similar to the AC one, but with SP (ie: I have no listed SP for my character, as well as no AC). The line disappeared after some uses of activated rings (lightning and cold).

Edit: And just to finish the trifecta, the HP line had disappeared as well.

I hadn't seen the sidebar issues before, thanks for reporting. The quick fix when it happens is to do a screen refresh with Ctrl-R.
