No section redirects

The redirects at demon prince, demon princes, demon lord currently point to the top of demon because MediaWiki has no support for redirects to sections of articles. --Kernigh 22:07, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

  • I realise this; they're there in case people wonder where the redirects are going. -- SGrunt 22:24, 24 September 2006 (UTC)


Could you explain to me how you came about the diffuculty and experience calculations? Lanzaa 09:04, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

With a cursed loadstone (ie heavy) heart I displaced your Cold article, for one matching the Fire article. Your writing is deposited in Cold:Discussion because you gave some useful information; especially about passive attacks. I've notified an administrator (Kernigh) for fairness; so your article may get reinstated.--PeterGFin 15:26, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

welcome back

Congrats to your ascension, and welcome back! --Tjr 03:20, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Vanilla bug tracker

I can provide a solution to C343-424 since I filed the report originally. apply.c, line 899, change this to "obj->age = (obj->age+1)/2;". Another issue that was part of the report but not mentioned on the bug tracker is that you can light the candellabrum without penalty on the invocation square after performing the invocation (this is not the case for the other two artifacts). To fix this: apply.c, line 897, change to "if (!invocation_pos(u.ux, && !On_stairs(u.ux, {" -- Qazmlpok 16:36, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks! I've added in the fix. (Actually, your logic is slightly wrong in the latter case: I added it as "[...] || On_stairs(u.ux, {", implying that for the penalty to not apply the player must be standing on the invocation square and that it not be a staircase (i.e. that the invocation hasn't already been performed); the check is in the opposite sense as the case for the Book and Bell.) --SGrunt 16:45, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Whoops. Too much copy/paste. -- Qazmlpok 18:31, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Experience, and a related bug

Thank you for fixing the Monsters (by experience) page a few days ago. I am looking at all the work you have been doing on the bug list, and I was wondering: do you think bug C343-70 could simply be a reference to this: exper.c#line76 (i.e., it could be fixed just by changing tmp to tmp2)? --Erica 03:03, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

  • You are correct, and thanks for the heads-up! --SGrunt 03:06, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Bugs C343-122, C343-116

  • C343-122: I applied a stethoscope to an Angel who was not affiliated with a god. The stethoscope told me that the Angel was neutral, instead of lawful. However, killing the hostile Angel gave +12 alignment record, which is consistent with a lawful Angel with alignment +12. It seems like the stethoscope automatically looks for a god's name when displaying an Angel (or aligned priest)'s alignment, even when there is no such god. Maybe that is the bug.
  • C343-116: I got "choked on an a very rich meal on a tombstone". --Erica 04:22, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
