Open Bugs

Here you can see all the bugs that still are open and need to be fixed at some point. Please note that some more bugs are reported to me by email and don't get inserted into the bug database (basically because I don't have the time to do that and the reporting person doesn't care about doing it).

2. ID#4995 Monsters become too difficult (682 comments) in progress
when you are killing a lot of the same monsters, they get much harder and the experience decreases. The decrease in experience is a good idea, but the increase in difficulty doesn't make any sense, t... (more)
3. ID#4994 Strange wish effects (6294 comments) in progress
I am not giving my real name 'cause I'm ashamed of savescumming. Anyhow, I got a ring of djinni summoning and played with it for a while, and noticed several bugs in the wish system. First, if you... (more)

6. ID#4991 Fire Lizard Corpses are Susceptible to Fire Damage (1500 comments) in progress

7. ID#4990 Stunned monsters attacking self and looking more powerful (639 comments) in progress

11. ID#4984 "on the average" - grammatical error (497 comments) in progress
Viewing the monster memory tells you what things are "on the average". It's better English to just say "on average". I'm surprised this hasn't been reported before, but I couldn't find it in the d... (more)

16. ID#4973 Monsters attacking themselves... (499 comments) in progress

The Universal Principles of Design Thomas Biskup recommends: The Universal Principles of Design
"A great book about design principles, no matter whether you are designing games, software or tools. I like the two-page structure: First the design principle is explained and then you get real world examples of how the principle can be applied. Combined with clear writing, a crisp layout and streamlined editing this makes for great reading!"
