changing birth options?

Hello,

I made a new character and I want to change the birth option "Items always sell for 0 gold". But I just don't get how to do it. I can't enter the options menu during the birth procedure...
I guess I'm just one click away...

greetings ugh the great

On the birth screen hit the "=" key and you'll see what you're after.

Hopefully you're setting it to the 0 gold option. It's so liberating.

It really should be more obvious, however.
I'm always forgetting to set it to randarts and have to start over.
Maybe it should just show the birth options screen when you have chosen your race/class?

It does say, quite clearly, to press '=' for options...

Ah,

ok, i got it and it wasn't that difficult i must admit. The trick is to use "=" at the very beginning, not in the last charakter-build screen, where it doesn't work.

Thanks for the response!

good killing!

I don't think it's unreasonable to always take the player to the birth options screen, say, immediately before buying stats. If they don't want to change anything they can just immediately leave it; an extra keystroke per character is not going to kill anyone.

And it's all your fault for not reading them all. Seriously.

ToME 2 has a query at character creation, "Do you want to change the birth options ? y/n" before starting you off.
