Oh, and massive thanks to Nick and everyone who worked on this new version! Crazy that this game still has so much love after so many years!

Oh man. I'm still learning the ropes with the new hunger mechanic. Not the most intuitive thing, but I'm getting there . I guess 90 % is where you get overgorged and slowed down. I guess that percentage is the fill rate of the stomach and 100% is obviously painful. Mild green font does not really reflect this very well, maybe a more dramatic color would work better.

A thought to consider. Would it be an idea to warn the player, when @ is going to eat something that will overgorge him? Ask for confirmation or something. That speed penalty is a killer.

just remember that CCW, etc, have a "food" component, so that when you're quaffing those healing potions in the battle with Morgoth that you don't get gorged and slowed at the wrong moment in the final fight!

Indeed. It does not even need to be one of the big guys out there. I got into trouble with a measly kobold when I was suddenly slowed down after quaffing some healing! It's an interesting mechanic, but not very intuitive imho. Not exactly sure how it could be simplified or made clearer, but in it's current state, I find it a bit challenging.

In a fight with a blue ooze, my blackguard got a shield bash in. The following log says that the ooze is stunned and right after that it says the ooze is unaffected. The question is, unaffected from what? Can shield bash do something on top of stunning or something? The character is a lvl 6 beginning character that has absolutely nothing special on him.

Shield bashing can also confuse, but I think the 'unaffected' message is a bit confusing.

I haven't played a whole lot on 4.2.0, but I rather like the new hunger representation. I too was caught off guard the first time I got slowed by eating, but thankfully in my case I was in town at the time. I don't think this is such a bad thing, as Angband has a fair number of things that you don't know until it bites you once.

I like the increased number of different foods too. It feels much more like foraging than just finding random stuff, even though it actually is finding random stuff. :P

What does mana channel do?

I'm a 25 level mage, but I cant figure out what this spell does. Broader question, is their a listing of what all of the spells do?

Mana channel makes casting a spell only take half as long (technically half as much energy). If you hit '?' on the spell screen you'll get a description of the spell you're currently looking at.

Why does a draught of the Ents provide no nourishment?
