Another annoying bug... it used to be that if you were casting spells, you could hit a direction and the spell would travel that direction, allowing you to blind-fire down a corridor if you knew enemies were on their way down. I tried it today with lightning strike, and when I hit "right", it just blew up at my feet. I was using the num pad, so I tried it with num lock both on and off, and I even tried it with the arrow keys. Just burst at my feet each time. Maybe other spells work (Raise earth works, but that's because it beams anyways)... maybe just ball spells? Anyone able to test, or seeing this same behavior?

I think that the idea is that lightning strike comes "from the sky" (or the dungeon ceiling?) like an air strike, instead of travelling in a straight line from your hands. (I didn't check, but I'd be curious to see if you can target a tile you can't see behind a corner).

That's correct. Lightning strike can target any grid the player can see, but you need to pick an actual grid to hit. I'll see if I can make that a bit clearer.

This leaves x and y uninitialized (in fact they should be equal to 32), breaking earthquakes.

Fix: replace with grid.y and grid.x.
Thanks, as usual

For everyone else reporting stuff, I am reading this thread and will get to it. Eventually.

Ok, that makes more sense. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. Thanks for the explanation.

Disconnected dungeon bug: @ descends stairs, maps, and finds is in an area of dungeon completely disconnected from the rest of the dungeon. Playing on angband.live, so waiting for Gwarl to get a savefile.

Was there a vault involved? The game assumes vaults connect their edges.

Hm, I see, no vault. Savefile probably doesn't help here - the fault will be in generation, and there's no real trace of that left in the savefile.

Just checking - it's not possible that there's a secret door at the left end right where the mapping cuts out, is it?

Yep! That was it. Just a strange coincidence that the cut-off was perfect to make it appear disconnected.
