Re: The uber of the uber uber items found in MAngband

I've found my way back here after something like six years, and it looks like there's some recent news on the front page... might have to download the client again and take a look ;) Anyway, while I'm here, I always thought that the shield I had during my successful **KING**ing attempt was pretty ex...

Re: House expansion project

Heh, when I saw that "very long life" bit, I thought a new instance was inbound.

I suppose that will wait until there's code in place to solve the housing problem without taking the servers offline and manually editing the houses?

Re: What do I need to know to run a server?

Trial and error shows me that that change has to be made client-side, not server-side.

Thanks.

Re: MAngband dumps are now supported at oook.cz

Yep, just copy and paste the text. You'll lose scene of death(since it's created in html rather then text), but you'll never lose the dump, since it automatically posts online ;) I've learned, to my dismay, that most variants don't automatically generate this like MAngband does, and since I'm used t...

Re: What do I need to know to run a server?

Thanks. Is there a tileset available for PWMangband which I could use to make that change, or would I have to go source diving, try to figure out what to change, and then hope I can successfully recompile? Additionally, is there a client-side change that could be made to address that issue as well? ...

Re: What do I need to know to run a server?

Thanks for the information on server startup. Edit: Ok, major problem. Map remembers all torch-lit grids is not an option, as far as I can see. It's just always on. I hate, HATE, *HATE* that setting, and it absolutely needs to be an option. I couldn't find it in the latest Vanilla, and I assume it m...

What do I need to know to run a server?

So... I downloaded the latest version of PWMangband, only to find no servers running for it(there's a beta6 up, but I don't see a download for beta6 on the PWM site). I then proceeded to download the server, hoping to run my own and play it that way. I ran the executable, and it looks like it's runn...

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 ...

Title.

Feel free to post yours there if you like - currently I have the only spot on the ladder, and I'd like some company, lol.

**KING** Avenger

Finally went for it today, in a vault 53. Cleared it out with destruction, put up some walls so I was sitting in one empty space, with another north of me, and mostly permawalls around me, and started summoning from a staff with a stack of 80 or so recharge scrolls. I finally pulled Morgoth with 2 r...

Re: Stoping Alter Reality from becoming even more powerful

Well, what we could just do is apply the same safety mechanics that are currently applied to > and Alter to < as well. I can't for the life of me imagine what (some of) the current devteam have against scumming for decent floors, since that's, at least to me, most of the fun of the game. No global E...

Formatted Vaults

I have attached a version of the vault.txt file from the Edit folder of the MAngband Server. I've formatted it to be legible, as for some reason the one that comes with the server is a complete clusterf**k. What I have noticed is that this vault file is not up to date with the game - it contains vau...

Re: Whelk's Accrued Wisdom

I've got one. Always detect traps. Yep, the cooldown on the rod is longer then you're going to spend in any given section of the map. Bring another one if you have to. Hell, bring three. Traps are bad.

Re: MAngband for Dummies

This needs to be a thing that exists. I will pay you money for it, Warrior.

And I'm more then happy to contribute, though my main class overlaps yours, so anything I know that you don't is bound to be minimal =P

Re: More houses available!

Just made a post about using the existing vaults as the basis for building houses. Not sure where it went, doesn't seem to have registered yet. Will expand on this idea if it never shows up.
