Re: [BUG] How to duplicate characters...

More testing reveals that the character name must be longer than 8 characters, maybe 10 or 11. The bug exploit worked with 'LongCharName' but not with 'LongChar'. Moreover, it wouldn't be so easy to get infinite cash. The max amount a dead char can drop is 32k. So you would need around 40x to get a ...

[BUG] How to duplicate characters...

1) Start a character with a character name that is longer than 8 characters (for example, a high elf mage named LongCharName); you will be connected as LongCharName, the high elf mage. 2) Start a second character with a name that starts with the same 8 characters (for example, a human warrior named ...

Re: Changes to High Scores

I'd say remove all level 1 characters with 0 xp from the list that are alive... there is no need to record every PLAYER/Test/Adsfgdskfbd characters who will never be played.

ROFLMAO

I picked this gem from Warrior's chardump:

"The Carrion crawler stings you.
 You resist the effects!
 The Carrion crawler stings you.
 You die.
 You resist the effects!"

Now that's an interesting question... which item worn by Warrior provided death resistance?   :D

Strange ego weapons/missiles

A lot of the ego weapons/missiles I have found with my current warrior have gotten the "extra dice" property: I've seen a lot of stuff like a dagger (2d4), bolts (2d5) and so on... However, each time I leave the game and come back all those increases in dice seem to be lost. Sounds like a weird bug....

Cannot connect to the ironman server

Ok... I downloaded the client from mangband.org.uk and I tried to connect to the ironman server. After character creation, the client simply freezes. After a (long) while, the client either crashes or says "couldn't connect to server - try again?" Note that I tried this when there were people connec...

Re: Greetings to all!

To those who wonder where Sav and Dwarfy are now... they play TomeNET.
To Warrior... Ironman Mangband sounds cool, but I cannot access the server with the 0.7.3 client (says the server isn't up when I clearly see people connected on the metaserver). Any idea what happens with the client?
