Hey Nick =]

Found another bug

The key to de-shapechange is assigned to 'list viewable objects', so I am currently stuck as a Dragon, without amulet.

This is good - you keep reporting bugs I know about, which makes me think there aren't too many others. You're not sounding too demanding, and I will try to rescue you soon...

Hello, just picked up this variant and it's pretty fun so far Playing as a Maia Warrior. I've noticed several bugs though, but I'm not sure whether these have been reported yet.
  • In the Mac download there is no options.txt file, so I cannot access help.
  • Also, I have been crashing quite occasionally. I know this isn't much information, but I'll post a log when it next happens (is a Mac crash log any help? I am clueless about this).

If it helps, I am on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74) and using a late 2011 Macbook Pro. Haven't gotten too far in the game yet, so I'll report any bugs if I find them later on. Question: how do I find out what each kind of ego item does? In the (short-lived) High Elven Warrior game I played, I started with a Long Sword of Gondolin but I had no idea of what it does. Is there any way to find out? Anyway, good job on the variant -- I'm enjoying the lack of anachronisms a lot!

Thanks - I was using the wrong file name ... will be fixed in the next release.

I am aware of crashes while using the help - are you having any others?

Either use 'I' and select the sword (for your particular item), or '~', ego item knowledge and then choose the ego type.

If you're brand new to rogue-likes and can't access the help in game, you can still read the help text files located in the lib/help directory.

Hi Nick, how stable is 1.2.9, a while back Lost Templar recommended 1.1.6 for stability, was curious if most bugs/issues had been fixed.

The current version is now 1.2.10, and the bugs I know of are all just upthread from here - in fact, I think Atriel has hit just about all of them The real showstoppers are that using in-game help crashes the game, and you can't de-shapechange.

I will aim to get 1.2.11 out this week.

I just had several crashes while opening the savefile of a recently-deceased character. It would reliably crash every time I tried to open the savefile.

Could you send me that savefile? Address on the opening screen.
