Re: Mage book stacking in house

Yes, when dropping things on floor, things shall stack first, crush other items/vanish later. I'll take a look at magic books. OK, yeah, our current floor stacking mechanism only allows potions, scrolls, food and ammo. In Angband, everything gets stacked correctly, so this is a horrible bug. Fixed i...

Re: Saving macros

mmmh...I remember in the old versions of MAngband (some years ago) I used keys like "-", "N", "x" and "h", for example... But now these keys interact with macros in other section of the game (like in the shops) or in creating macros (like \em1h with key "h" as macro command). In this case should be...

Re: Saving macros

There is an uninstall option in the Start / Programs / MAngband menu on windows.

You might also want to visit the user pref dir (the one with user-win.prf and others) and delete the pref files you wrote earlier, as those are definitely broken.

Re: Saving macros

Turned out what you experienced was a deadly combination of two bugs (#1288 and #1289) and not the expected behavior :(

Thanks a lot for bringing attention to this.

This has been fixed in 1.5.2 client.

This release brings mouse support, png tilesets, and a new, newbie-friendly macro editor. You might also encounter some new vaults.

Most of the newly reported bugs (from 1.5.0/1.5.1) were also fixed, along with some long-standing ones.

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

I'll try to re-trace your steps and see if I find anything.

Could be something fundamentally broken (on the windows build?)

Sorry for not getting to you earlier, and yeah, we aren't a densely populated server :(

UPDATE: Yup, those are bugs, plain and simple, will be fixed in the next version.

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

SDL is the "Multi-window" client and it expects the macros to be in 'user-sdl.prf'. Apparently, you're using normal Windows clients, so the macros should be in 'user-win.prf'. The file seem to exist on your screenshot, could you try opening it in with something like Wordpad and verify the contents? ...

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

Assuming everything works as expected, you're supposed to save your macros into a file. (%, 2) Then, you are supposed to load this file on each session. (%, 1) The following files are auto-loaded : user-<SYS>.prf, <PClass>.prf, <PRace>prf, <Playername>.prf and also any file included[1] from user.prf...

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...

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...
