Competition 85

Competition 85 is now available from the competition page; it is an NPPAngband 0.5.0 Human Mage.

Note that comp 84 still has a day or two to run.

does anyone know how/if I can get the 32x32.bmp tilesets for NPP? The documentation gives an ftp site but I am unable to connect.

NPP quests

Does anyone know which quests are the best to choose, monster, pit, or level (when available)?

In my experience:
  • Monster quests are most likely to be achievable; they tend to be difficult at dungeon levels in the 30s, when you haven't found any stat potions but are getting quests for level 40-45 monsters (I've been killed twice by Rogrog in this way)
  • Pit quests are a mixed bag; yonk pits (lesser cave dwellers - yeeks, orcs, nagas, kobolds) are usually OK, creeping coin pits can be brutal (but lucrative)
  • Level quests usually see me leaving the level or dying in short order, but apparently some people finish them.

Back in 0.4 days, I was sure that one should only take (a) quests. The harder quests were not matched with proportionally good rewards.

If you are trying to win a comp, it is probably a mistake to take any quests after the first few. When trying for fastest NPP wins, I used to take the very first quest only.

I haven't played much 0.5 so my advice may be irrelevant.

Eddies advice is sound still for fast wins.

For easy wins, you take pit quests as soon as you can until dlvl 20 something and then go back to (a) quests.

You'll need an updated pref file. I have one that mostly works but I don't remember where I got it, I grabbed it several months ago for NPP. There may be a more updated one out there or you could update this one yourself, it wouldn't be too hard to fill in the missing pieces but it's already very playable. I'm just not sure what you'd fill in for some of the different floor spaces. I sent you an email, respond and I'll get it to you.

I have a quick question. I've never posted to the ladder until now, how do I update a character? Do I just submit a dump with the same name and it will overwrite the old one? Thanks in advance!
