I noticed no difference. I'm not sure whether it checks for immunity or just resistance, my understanding is something like:

no change for mindless casters
50% chance of removing the spell for standard casters (on observation of fail)
99% chance for intelligent casters

I think this is a bug. I have looked around, but haven't found any similar reports. Sound familiar to anyone?

Angband 4.2.0. Ubuntu 18.04.

I (Dunadan Mage) have wielded:
Augmented Chain Mail of Elvenkind (-2) [42,+12] <+1> {cursed}
Dropped by Ufthak of Cirith Ungol at 700 feet (level 14)

It makes you vulnerable to fire attacks, but resistant to cold.
+1 stealth.
Provides resistance to acid, lightning, fire, cold, light.
Cannot be harmed by acid.
I appear to have fully ID'd the item. If I examine it, there's no indication of un-ID'd features. If I cast "Identify Rune", I'm told "You have nothing to identify."

But...if I look at the grid showing equipment and resistances ("C" "<space>"), I see about 24 question marks on a variety of resistances. That's usually an indication that the item has un-ID'd runes.

Un-wielding / re-wielding the item has no effect on this disparity.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to repro it yet. I'm also unsure of the exact order in which the properties and curses were revealed with "Identify Rune".

I made a copy of the savefile. Don't know whether it might be of help to examine it, but it's available if someone wants to take a look.

If you could zip it and post it here, that would be great.

So last week I upgraded my machine and monitor, giving me 3840x1600 resolution, which I *naturally* wanted to harness for Angband in ASCII mode. I take it that the game isn't able to handle widescreen display like that? Because I'm finding that if I attempt anything beyond a 16:9 aspect ratio, the map cuts off at what appears to be column 80. No more fullscreen single-window Angband for me, I guess.

I'm on a 3840x2160 display and it works fine with full screen in ascii mode.

The game is limited to 255 characters height or wide. Keep within that and you should be fine?

I dunno .. my latest comp character fought the Tarrasque with Cold immunity, and the creature breathed frost 3 times in a short span of turns.

Good idea, except that I usually die before I get that old. :-)
