What about bones?

Are the Gnomish Mines eligible for bones files?— Preceding unsigned comment added by LoATS (talkcontribs)

Yes, under the same conditions as any other part of the dungeon.--Ray Chason 15:42, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Chance of Darkness

Anybody have the chance of darkness for these levels? --AileTheAlien 20:13, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Mines.des specifies the "lighted" attribute as "random". (Not only mines fillers, but also caveman, upper samurai, and tourist quest filler levels.) I guess this ends up in "init_lev.lit" as -1. Then sp_lev.c, line 1726 assigns it 0 or 1 (50% chance) if it was <0. So if my guess is correct, the chance is flat 50%.
Can anybody check whether my guess is correct?
This is different from the chance for ordinary rooms in the Dungeons of Doom, or rooms marked as "ordinary" in mine town, the Oracle level, wizard quest fillers etc.: sp_lev.c, line 390 means they have a 76/77*10/(1+depth) chance of being lit, with "depth" set to 9 if lower. I presume "depth" is 1 for the entry level etc. --Tjr 22:33, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, I guessed correctly: util/lev_comp.l, line 152. Courtesy of Ais523. --Tjr 20:43, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
