Re: Forum registration re-opened

Yuck, and right after that we got hit by spambots :/ Fiddling with phpbb captcha/signup settings to see if it can be made any better.

Re: MAngband 1.5.0 released

Saturday you mention at discord that players can continue to play their chars at the previous servers for longer time, just new character creation will be restricted. How can I now continue to play or do I need to wait that the older versions are up again? You're right, we'll bring our old instance...

There are many exciting improvments, like time bubbles and nicer UI, while the core gameplay should remain pretty much the same. Here is the full changelog . You will have to download a new client to play. Windows users should ...

Attention to all historians: PWMangband source releases

I'm fond of collecting (PW)(M)Angband source distributions on my machine, and I'm missing a lot of PWMangband releases that happened over the years. I've seen PW has added 1.1.11 and 1.1.12 to his website, which I greedily downloaded, but I know for certain there were more! If any of you, by any cha...

Re: Rods of Detection not sorted correctly in inventory

I've noticed this bug as well. It's one of the reasons I stopped carrying multiple detect rods(the other being that they don't stack when charging, resulting in their being dropped and potentially lost with a full inventory), which is how my latest death to time hounds occurred. I've just picked up...

Re: \e in macros

Hi, thank you very much for that detailed post! First off, there's no change in how macros work in 1.5.0, this is more about potential changes. Secondly, yes, I should've mentioned that this whole question only makes sense if "you trigger macros faster than character speed", like you said. That can ...

\e in macros

Did you know, that pressing ESC clears the command queue? Are you aware, that \e in macros also clears the command queue? Do you write your macros always starting with \e? I will post complete explanation/reasoning behind this questions a bit later, but I really need to hear your opinions and usage ...

Re: MAngband 1.5.0 beta test

Hi, I think it's doable, technically, as the savefile format has not changed that much , but the new version re-balances things quite a bit, so it wouldn't be fair to keep old and new characters together, on the same HighScore table. If it's any consolation, we aren't planning to reset the instances...

MAngband 1.5.0 beta test

MAngband 1.5.0 is scheduled for release on April 1st 2019. That means two things: You have 2 weeks to finish off your regular/ironman characters on main servers and make it to the 1.1.4/1.4.0 highscore table. You have 2 weeks to report any bugs or anything else, that is not to your liking on the pre...

Re: The holding / staying command (with poll :)

In 1.5.0alpha, this has been changed to: - g - hold - pickup items. always picks up (doesn't matter which options are set) - , - stay - pickup items if auto_pickup=off, stay and do nothing if auto_pickup=on This is closer to V3.2.0 (as explained by powerwyrm), but not quite the same. Sadly, this mea...

MAngband preview server

We're finally gearing up for the next major release. It's time to give our preview server a good shake-down. The preview server is currently in the alpha status, meaning we expect horrible bugs, regressions, things being broken or otherwise wrong. But you can help! Join the test!
