Anyway, here is a (minor) annoyance. I symlink my pref files to keep things centralized and easy to back up. What happens with the mogaminator pref files, and only those, is that Frog loads them correctly at the start of the game (e.g. I have been playing necromancers lately, so it loads pickpref-necromancer.prf) but then saves it with the character name (e.g. something like pickpref-Fauglin.prf) and presumably, since the pref with the char name is what loads last, it is that one that wins. If I then synmlink to the original class file but with the character name, then all is fine and dandy again. Is it possible to correct this behavior, e.g. not resave the class pref file with the character name? I do not know if this is a weird clash with Wine, but it is an annoyance.
i think i will follow your path and do the same :P at least to try it, also i will try https://angband.live/play xD

Thanks for the info.

Without any knowledge of the internals, my answer is: save the pickpref that is loaded, e.g. if it loads the class pickpref save that, if the race pickpref save that, etc. But this is but a minor annoyance, I can work around it.

note(s):
- I am assuming that Frog only loads the first pickpref file it finds in the search order, contrary to say macro files, as there is no "obvious" way to merge different pickpref files.

Lame GWoMC quest reward

Wondering if the reward for taking care of 10 great worms of many colors could be a little better . . .

Also, would someone please remind me how to make a character dump in frogcomposband?

It's a randart, so you never know exactly how good it will be; sometimes you get a great one, sometimes it's a dud. Also, makes a difference whether you've found something like Thorin for it to compete against (If you're thinking of a class-specific reward rather than the default randart dragon shield - some of those are probably even more hit-and-miss, but there's only so much dragon-themed equipment.)

If you're still alive, just press | on the Character Sheet. If you're dead, access the character sheet through the high-score list and then press |. See the FAQ for more details if needed.

Mutter... just a whine.
Playing a Ninja for the first time in a year or more. Good Ninjatos are as rare as they come. Imagine my joy at seeing 2x Ninjato (special) and an Elf Cloak (excellent) after completing the Orc Lair. Three bosses and their escorts all in the same room came close to ruining my day.
Imagine my despair when the cloak had a fire_aura, and both blades had Lu... and me without a darkness source.
The blade's power level is way above mine for reforging.

More killing I guess lol
