Bug #4987
Bug synopsis: Dissapearing altars
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2003-12-15, 02:16:51
Submitted by: Chris Munn
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: I have noticed that when teleporting with teleportation control or with the look command, if the cursor moves over an altar that altar dissapears from view (although it is still there) until it is redrawn latter.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (547): hmmm....

no problem there with me, maybe it is because it is because the tp control and look cursor look sorta kinda like the altar that you are just getting confused

I have the same thing happening.

Yeah. Likewise here. It's because the cursor for control/looking/whatever is an '_'. Altars are also a '_' mark. When you pass overtop of one with the cursor, the underscore for moving around basically becomes the altar (or vice versa).

I've noticed this effect when a PC is invisible and hasn't got 'see invisible', too: walk over the altar and have it 'follow' him because of the underscore.

Fairly minor bug, but it can be annoying because you can't see the color of the altar properly. Fortunately, you can tell where it was because there is now a big black space in the room. ;)

Yes, also the \"look\" command does the same thing, Although this is not a bug, it is just that the \"look\" command and all the other commands that look around (teleport control etc.) and invisibility are using the underscore. The nature of the game is that if something moves then it is no longer where it started from, so when you move the underscore, the \"alter\" (represented by a white/grey/black underscore) dissapears until another character moves over it.

Thus, not a bug, just an interesting lesson in how stupid computers are.

Also if I am not mistaken, this would require quite a few lines of code to \"fix\" this and whats the point? Nothing is bothered from this, so stop complaining.

Dungeons & Dragons: V.3.5 Core Rulebook Set Thomas Biskup recommends: Dungeons & Dragons: V.3.5 Core Rulebook Set
"Here you get all the Dungeons & Dragons V3.5 Core Rulebooks in one set. I really love those books and have found my perfect fantasy system with these rules and the new Unearthed Arcana rulebook issued by Wizards of the Coast. This is so close to what ADOM RPG should have been that I will provide D20 rules for ADOM RPG based on these three books and some extra supplements. Character generation has become very flexible, the D20 rules system is pretty elegant and you can have a lot of fun with the wide range of possibilities these books offer."

More details about this item can be found here: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany.
