Bug #4960
Bug synopsis: circular kick bug
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2004-02-08, 17:16:42
Submitted by: david Letuffe
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: When you use the special power "circular kick" against ennemies and that one of the enemy you could hit is a companion(we'll call him X), he asks you: "do you really want to attack X?". If you answer "No", you make your circular kick without hitting your companion(up to here no bug, I know), whithin hitting your ennemies, and moreover, your going to be the only one to move. This is to say that neither your companion or your ennemies attacks. So you can kill any ennemy by making circular kicks, as long as he asks you if you really want to attack X.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (1076): the monk decides to stop the circular kick, is that a bug?

Well, logically, you cann't halt yourslef in mid circle in a jump while kicking all around you, or decide to phase your foot through your pet to hit the next monster... so perhaps circular kicks should be made to hurt your pet?

hmm, you can stop the jumping kick by changing the position of the kick, vertically intead horizontally, the kick stops, the centrifugue force ends short later.

Nonono, the bug is the fact that if a friendly is in the path of the kick, and you choose not to attack the friendly, then the kick becomes a FREE TURN (i.e. no time elapses and no monsters get to move) even if you did attack other monsters.

-- AWJ (2005-02-03, 18:29:28)
while you are in jumping kick you can't change your orientation from vertical to horizontal because of the conservation of angular momentum (this is how the gyroscope works)

XBox Console Thomas Biskup recommends: XBox Console
"Yes, I confess it - Microsoft has brought me back into console gaming. And there's a simple reason for it: I don't like hardware, I don't like fiddling with systems and I like to take it easy. The XBox system IMHO is as easy to use as its get. You have a built-in hard disc and never have to think about extensions to be able to save games (memory sticks, yikes :-P ), the games are great, the graphics are great and the price is ok. I have spent many hours playing Star Wars Battlefront and Fable and intend to continue doing this. So for me this is a safe bet and I surly will by the XBox 360 as soon as it is available. Of you want a simple console system with great games you can't go wrong here."

  • The "comment" feature is not meant to degenerate into a kind of news system. It will be shut down once again (and probably forever) if people once more start abusing it. The idea behind the "comment" feature is to provide Thomas Biskup with helpful comments about how well RFEs are received and about how bugs might be fixed and nothing else!
