New PWMAngband 1.1.10 beta 1 released!

Check readme.txt for the HUGE list of changes...

Files updated: client, server and source code.
Files are available for download at the usual location: http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr

This version will port the features from the vanilla Angband 3.5 series. I've added a number for beta releases, so that I can release unfinished dev versions to give a taste of what the new version will be. Expect a lot of bugs and crashes! ;)

New PWMAngband 1.1.10 beta 2 released!

Quick fix update for ironman servers. Changes below:

- Slightly increase the chance of getting a good Ring of Polymorphing deeper in the dungeon
- Add a +1 bonus to stealth when a player is idle
- Ensure that gloves with +MANA don't hinder spellcasting
- Finally fix ironman servers completely by removing CAVE_VAULT and adding CAVE_GLOW to the "info" byte in dungeon town files
- Remove monk stealth bonus hardcoded in calc_bonuses() because it's already taken into account via p_class.txt

New PWMAngband 1.1.10 beta 3 released!

Quick fix update because I goofed about stealth bonus for idle players. Changes below:

- Fix the temporary +1 bonus to stealth for idle players (it was cumulative each time a monster was processed, eventually giving max stealth to the player)
- Redraw the monster list when a friendly summon kills another monster
- Don't use monster flow for pathfinding if the player is wraithed in walls
- Rename _DEBUG define to DEBUG_MODE (defined in config.h) to allow running clients and servers in debug mode without actually using the debug commands
- Remove MULTIPLY flag from living walls
- DOCUTILS upgraded to version 0.11
- LIBPNG upgraded to version 1.6.3
- Update help files (stats, standard roller, squelch categories)

Files updated: client, server and source code.

Vanilla is in feature freeze now (v3.5). This means I'll be able to release the full 1.1.10 soon, but not before my summer holidays of course ;)

F***!

I started a new Ironman sorceror to test the new beta, and after an few minutes I found a mage staff of mana +2. Would have been nice... if the bonus ACTUALLY WORKED! Looking at the code, it seems that the bonus is only counted on gloves, not on other items. Time to start working on a new beta instead of playing...

I just found a severe bug with beta 5: when you drink from a fountain and get the "dragon breath" effect, the game will randomly decrease the quantity of one item in your backpack. So until beta 6 is released, DON'T DRINK FROM FOUNTAINS!!!

After a bit of testing, two new bugs were found: one happens when you enter manual design mode with the DM on small levels, the other happens when any invisible/out of LOS monster is killed with spells. I'll try to fix that today.

Beta 6 has been (silently) updated with fixes for the previous two bugs. You can redownload the server part and just replace the executable.

New PWMAngband 1.1.10 beta 7 released!

This is mainly a bugfix release. Also ports the birth option screen from V to set options like birth_start_kit without having to generate a dummy character, set the option and suicide. See list of changes below:

- Correctly wipe monsters when the DM enters manual design mode on small levels
- Display a normal message when killing an invisible or out-of-LOS unique monster
- Correctly assign target_who when targeting self or another player manually with 'p'
- Check for dead monsters when displaying the monster list to avoid referencing a NULL pointer
- Server selection: manual selection command set to Ctrl-m
- Character generation: default "quit" command set to Ctrl-x
- Point-based roller: allow choosing one base stat of 18 with a cost of 12 points
- Point-based roller: initial choice restrained between 10 and 18 (no more "negative" costs on secondary stats to boost primary stats)
- Point-based roller: add a server check to prevent hacking stats that could bypass the maximum birth points allowed
- Allow modifying birth options by pressing "=" during character generation (ported from Angband 3.x)
- Refactor starting equipment lines in p_class.txt: remove lines for ironman characters, add boolean value on normal lines to specify whether the item is generated for no_recall characters or not
- Remove most of the starting equipment from no_recall characters (they get double gold instead)
- Wipe objects carried by residents when the wilderness level is deallocated (last player leaves the level) and recreate them when the level is reallocated (a player enters the level)
- Display pain message when a monster damaged by a chaos spell (Chaos Strike, Anarchy Force...) resists the polymorph effect instead of displaying "... is unaffected"

Note: characters from beta 6 can be played with beta 7, but you need the beta 7 client to play on beta 7 servers.

New PWMAngband 1.1.10 beta 8 released!

The house creation system has been reworked to be much simpler: rectangular houses, correctly placed on allowed terrain and priced when created/extended, and deleted when the wilderness level is deallocated. The game speed has been greatly reduced on questor levels to make the last fights more fair. Also more bugfixes. Since the V team is pretty much quiet at this moment and v3.5 is on its way, this beta should be a good release candidate for the forthcoming PWMAngband 1.1.10 release.

See list of changes below:

- Completely prevent changing birth options after birth (as Angband 3.x)
- Minor vault template fix
- Fix pickup behaviour when blind
- Add missing flavored messages when being killed by projectable spells or by the strain of polymorphing
- Shimmer objects when displaying the object list in subwindows
- Replace old monster and object list code with new textblock-based code
- Use textual descriptions for message prefs & fix some sounds
- Merge Dawnmist's work that allows graphical tiles to represent lighting states better
- Display pain message when a monster damaged by a chaos spell resists the polymorph effect
- Display a message when both equipment and inventory are empty and the player presses 'e'
- Save p_ptr->unignoring in savefiles
- Fix dungeon loading code recreating the mimicked object/feature each time a mimic is loaded from the server savefile
- Reduce game speed below 4250ft so that +20 speed at 4950ft and deeper feels the same as 0 speed in town
- Greatly reduce game speed on quest levels (depths 100/126/127) so that +30 speed feels the same as 0 speed in town
- Add option (turned on by default) to disturb the player when a monster bashes down a door
- Let the General Store sell House Foundation Stones and scrolls of House Creation
- Prevent the DM or birth_no_stores players from creating or expanding houses
- Deallocate custom houses when deallocating unused wilderness levels
- Use a separate unit (house.c) for the house code
- Use a growable array for houses to ensure that the wilderness layout stays consistent
- Only allow rectangular houses with automatic (random) door placement when creating a house
- Placing a foundation near an existing owned house extends that house automatically
- Forbid house creation/extension near other houses
- Set (or adjust) price according to house dimensions
- Make the player pay as "local tax" the difference between the new price and the amount already paid when creating/extending a house
- Scan the floor again after the player presses a key to select an item from the floor to minimize the risk of getting "Illegal object choice" messages if the floor has changed in the meantime
- PYTHON upgraded to version 2.7.6
- LIBPNG upgraded to version 1.6.7
- FREETYPE upgraded to version 2.5.2

Note: savefiles are not compatible with beta 7, you need to restart from a clean instance.

V3.5 is out today. This means I'm gonna follow with the first non-beta build for PWMAngband 1.1.10 soon. I'll probably have a last beta out during the next few days to test last minute changes, but after that, it'll be a new version with a ton of changes (just check the V site to see what changes have been made in 3.5, it's a huge list).
