Largest single $?

GnMageIV just picked up a 17,000 gold piece pile of adamantite dropped by a master rogue on dlev 40 (no sell of course). I did a double take on the message log, too many zeroes it seemed!

I picked up a pile of 32767 adamantite coins after killing a whole room of creeping treasures or hydras or something, so I'm pretty sure that is the largest

This was also with no-selling, and I guess that treasures of the same type on the same square must merge. Largest single gold drop is another matter.

That's as big as it gets in the font dropdown, and even if you enter a larger size manually the system truncates it.

(Sorry, could not resist)

Digging through the code a bit, part of the gold generation is to repeatedly increase the drop size until a die roll fails (99% likely) or the gold size hits MAX_SHORT. So with exactly the right rolls you could at any time receive 32767 (the largest allowable value) gold from a single drop.

The game does (or at least used to) have code to consolidate similar items together, so that e.g. if there were two Scrolls of Teleport on the floor in the same general vicinity, they'd get combined into a single stack of 2 scrolls. I'd imagine similar logic applied to money.

Seeing as people are hitting the 16-bit limit. How about expanding the "count" field to 32-bit?

I won't be satisfied until I start the game, kill a town drunk, and get so much money that it overflows the "player's current gold total" counter. Gimme negative gold!

Of course, given the infamous error-proneness of C's implicit conversions, I would guess that would probably lead to 2^32-1 =~ 4 billion gold. Would still be awesome... even though there would be almost nothing to spend it on.
