Monster memory from 3.5.0

Hello

I was not very fond of Angband. But I loaded back some days ago my half-troll warrior and now I'm in !
But it is still 3.5.0 and I see 4.0.2 was released since then. I guess my save is not compatible, that's not a problem I'll finish this one first.
I've read monster memory is now independant from char saves. But is these a way once my char will be dead to export my monster memory somehow for next games in 4.0.2

This is a very naive question, maybe the answer is very simple, but I have no clue at the moment

Thanks

You are correct, the new version breaks savefile compatability. Also monster memory from 3.5 will not be transferable. However, in 4.0.+, if you copy monster.txt from the gamedata folder and rename it lore.txt and replace the lore.txt file you will have complete monster memory.

Dammit, I guess this is a definitive answer
Thanks

Just curious... let's suppose 4.2.0 comes out; now that monster memory is independent from savefiles, I imagine that it is possible to carry it over by simply copying the file. But, suppose that a monster's properties have been changed (for instance, drolems now breath shards instead of poison). What happens to the monster memory? Will it be shown as the old version until I see a drolem breating shards? Will wrong properties be deleted on load? Will "breathes poison" stay there forever even if it is no longer true?
