[Spoils]
=============================================

Started a dwarven fighter for some good ol' ground-round,
thin-red-pastin' action. Dove quickly, skipping the puppy and healer
quests (sign-scummed for Candle), and came across a slightly unusual
shop in UD 8. I'll let you guys look for yourselves; this is the save
file, right in front of the odd shop. [Windows Beta 4 savegame, use
the appropriate version!]

    Looks like this is the same bug responsible for the weird row of doors
    in the banshee's room. Here's a typical example of the banshee level:

    ###############################################################
    #%..%...............%....%...................}....../........%#
    ###########.#############################################.#####.........#
    #....%.%..#.# #.+......%%.+............%...%...%%.# #.........#

    #.....###%...%..#########################.###.........# #....%..#
    #.....# #.......# #"..+.........# #.......#
    ####### ######### ############### #########

    Examine the room in the center. Notice anything strange about it? Its
    size (width and height) are even numbers, however all other normal
    dungeon rooms have usually odd width and height.

    Now, for the shop in question:

    [with items] [without items]

    ######## ########
    #.......# #.......#
    #.....<.#### #.....<.####
    #......./.... #......./....
    ######/#### ######/####
    #.# #.#

    #!!!!!# #..../#
    #!!!!!# #..../#
    #!!!@!# #...@/#
    #!!!!!# #..../#
    #!!!!## #....##
    ###### ######

    This shop has a height of 6 and a width of, seemingly, 5. However, looks
    like the game wanted to make a 6x4 room, but messed up while trying to
    connect a corridor to it, and "dug" a column of doors.

    Also, note that the PC is the @ at the top, and the shopkeeper stands
    still in the middle of the room, even if the PC picks up an item. He
    does sound an alarm when the PC tries to exit with unpaid items in hand.

    The left walls of the shop, apart from the one extruding tile, are
    diggable - because those walls are not part of the shop. AdomBot
    displays clearly that the room is defined by the 6x8 box, with the row
    of doors as the left boundary.

    left = right?

    Yeah, I saw that in the bug database one time; "Rooms always have an odd
    number of spaces"... and it's true. This is a rather rare bug that
    doesn't really hurt anything, but it _might_ be worth mentioning in the
    email, not sure. Should be listed on our little bug page at least.
    Would be interesting to figure out exactly what causes this confusion in
    the code too. (go, Vladimir! ...I'm too lazy ;)

    Hm, guess I can explain in detail such rare glitches but can't tell left
    from right :(

    No way I'm looking in the dungeon generation code - the code is scary
    there :(

    My guess would be as follows: first, dungeon rooms are generated, and
    then an attempt is made to connect there rooms with corridors. However,
    when (for some reason) the generator creates a room with even numbers of
    rows/columns, the corridor generator doesn't take that into account and
    tries to connect to the room to the right-most/bottom-most tile - which
    would be rock. I assume that the generator generates corridor tiles
    before entering the room, and then digs throughout the room turning rock
    to doors until it hits a floor tile. Normally, it would turn only the
    first tile to a door - but when it hits the right-most/bottom-most
    row/column, which is actually the left/bottom wall of the room, it turns
    it all (or almost all) into doors.

    If this still sounded too confusing, I suggest you take a look at that
    save-file with AdomBot's map editor. Did you know there are over 4 map
    elements that denote a wall in ADOM? Some walls denote room walls (the
    walls directly around the room), some undiggable walls, some undiggable
    but won't let even ghosts through, etc. All these different wall types
    are color-coded in the map editor.

    Heh yeah, I've heard of that bug but never seen it myself. I thought
    that had been fixed in 1.1.1 though, maybe not...

    I added this bug to the list and posted your explanation as well. I hope
    you won't claim your copyright :-).

    Some more minor bugs Twinge and me collected throughout time:

    1. Quick Pickup (the ";" command) move counter issues.
    - if you use it on a pile of items, but press 0 or more times "n" and
    then "q", the move counter is decreased by 1;
    - if you pick up an item but afterwards press "q", the move counter is
    increased but the monsters don't move;
    - if you press "n" for all items, the same as above happens.

    2. While staying on top of a pit, one can repeatedly press ^T (Activare
    trap) to repeatedly fall into the pit (without having to climb out).

    (extremely minor)
    3. Trying to eat swamp hydra corpses have a too low chance of making you
    sick (1/1000).

    Is there a reason one wanted to repeatedly fall into a pit? AFAIK only
    climbing out of one trains climbing, doesn't it?

    Not really. But you can kill yourself doing this (if you somehow manage
    to get both Ctrl and T stuck while the PC is above a pit) - 3d6 damage.

    That's all the bugs I remember at the moment. And I said these were
    minor.

    Could you post the link to the bug list every once in a while? Maybe
    put it in your signature, until it appears in a FAQ? It hasn't been
    mentioned very often and it's not very nice to have to google for the
    link each time.

    Having said that, I don't feel like googling for the page now, but I
    feel that this list may be growing a little long. I'm with Malte on
    this issue: why put the minor issues on the list? I think the list
    should only be used to point Thomas to the bugs and balance issues that
    we *really* want to see fixed: the ones that affect gameplay in a
    very negative way. The ones mentioned in this thread crop up so
    infrequently or are so minor that Thomas' bug database should do; if we
    list them, we might just as well add the majority of the proper reports
    frcm the database.

    Aye, I wil try to remember putting it in my sig or mention it at every bug
    list update.

    It is the question what we want the bug list for. If we wanted it for
    Thomas I'd agree with you, however at the moment it kind of looks to me as
    if he'll not look at it. As Malte pointed out he rejected a bug list of
    r.g.r.a. a year ago, why should he think differently now? And the other
    thing is: All the major bugs are reported quite often in the bug database,
    so he knows about them already. But I doubt it is reported that the
    skilled talent would do twice what is mentioned in the manual if it
    worked, because nearly nobody knows about it. That's an extremely minor
    bug, but something that should be fixed when the skilled talent is fixed.

    The current version of the bug list is just for the newsgroup and it only
    contains bugs reported in the newsgroup.

    If we decide to make a bug list for Thomas, we needed to do some
    redesigning. But I will wait with this kind of talk untill Thomas says he
    wants a complete bug list of r.g.r.a.

    By the way: Malte have you send the mail already? What did you decide to
    put in?

    We've been talking about doing it a lot of different ways, and it's kind
    of up to Thomas at this point I suppose. I like the idea of working
    through the public bug database to gather EVERYTHING that people have
    reported as bugs (assuming Thomas agrees that this is acceptable and
    that he'll actually read it if we take the effort), and list as much as
    possible for Thomas so he has a nice streamlined list of all the bugs
    (and balance issues), and he can decide for himself which bugs he wants
    to fix. We already seperate the unimportant issues to the bottom, but
    they should still be listed.

    Thomas certainly already knows about the big 3, but as Malte mentioned
    we should still list them to make sure he knows that even experienced
    players consider stuff like the jackal issue a problem and not just a
    bunch of newbies ;)

    I have. Is it ok if I wait with a summary of what everybody said when
    and if I get a reply? A bit busy at the moment.
