Bug #4974
Bug synopsis: fatal error: illegal skill advancement <2/0>
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2004-01-01, 10:20:10
Submitted by: Hat
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: When creating a character, adom worked correctly until I came to the skill advancement menu, which it gave me three advancement choices for, when picking the third one, the fatal error arose.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (65): By any chance, were you picking the talent "skilled" or "very skilled"?

This is likely another Skilled talent crash. Dupl. of #2371.

If the situation is as Brannalbinncaptainofthenorth describes it, then you've just stumbled across a well-known bug.

The error itself seems to be more of an oversight by Thomas, rather than a serious logic error. Just remember that there is a long time between releases of ADOM, and, for all we know, he may have already remedied it.

And if it hasn't been fixed... well, it seriously needs to be.

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!"

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!

  • 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!
