Angband 4.2.4

Angband 4.2.4 is now available for Windows, macOS and as source. It can be downloaded from the official site.

This version contains a LOT of bug-fixing and code improvements, again mostly by backwardsEric.

There will be a 4.2.5 at some point, I should think, as there are still outstanding code improvements and minor bugs to fix; I wanted to get this out now, though, as I believe Single Combat may be finally bug-free and I really wanted that in the latest official version.

At some point we'll need to talk about what a version 4.3 would do; re-work of objects, especially ego items, is a possibility.

Summary of changes:
  • use C99 types instead of the angband special types
  • Single Combat maybe finally bug-free
  • improvements to the birth process
  • improvements to the NDS port
  • many improvements to auto-building and all the front ends
  • improvements to changing of background colours
  • adding of a panic directory for panic saves
  • new tests, and improvements to current ones
  • re-organisation of effects code
  • add a player argument to a lot of functions that needed it
  • import a lot of historical documentation
  • lots of tidying and neatening

As always, thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way to Angband development.

Pretty much not - a couple of minor things like quiver not counting as wielded for ID purposes.

Fixed in the OP now. I think I grabbed them before the release was fully updated by Github.

Thanks to everybody involved in the development.

If single combat is finally bug free then it's a fine day.

I think one gameplay change is that greater balrogs, Gothmog, and Lungorthin, no longer walk through walls.

Yes, correct. Also some PASS_WALL monsters were made rarer.
