MAngband 1.5.0 beta test

Post by Flambard » Thu 14.03.2019, 17:31

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 preview server.

Join the beta test!

Hi,

can we keep the current chars for v1.5?
It was no problem to keep/convert them from v1.1.3 to v1.4.
I dont see a technical problem and the arts were reseted just shortly ago.
Otherwiser a longer remaining time would be more player friendly.
Thanks.

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 for the subsequent 1.5.X releases, so a long-term (think 10 years) instance will be a thing once again. (Unless something goes horribly wrong)

IIRC I have 3 chars remaining on the server, one was my castle holder which lost everything when the server savefile was wiped, one is a priest I was just using for clairvoyance and one was a HT mage that lost all artifacts and therefore was rendered useless. All of them don't have the consumables to even attempt a morgy fight (were stored in house -> wiped), so I'll leave them to die with the server.

New instance with new version should be great!
