Bug #4993
Bug synopsis: Illogical messages
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2003-12-07, 23:49:31
Submitted by: Rami Raksab
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: I was in melee combat with a red dragon, wielding two weapons. One was a frozen dagger. I received the following messages after one turn when I attacked:

"You hit the red dragon and moderately wound him. [first weapon attack] You hit the red dragon and moderately wound him. [frozen dagger attack] The red dragon is frozen by icy shards emerging from your weapon. The red dragon is badly injured by the icy blast. The attack doesn't penetrate the defenses of the red dragon!"

If an attack doesn't get through the monster's DV, obviously that "badly injured" message makes no sense.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (1151): Not really, I think it is possible to 'burn' from thing, even if it does not penetrate (or in this case, freeze something), maybe not as effectively, but if the thing is covered with fire (in theory) and you attack it with opposing element, the ice would still hit the fire, even if it would not penetrate the fiery shell, my two cents

I've received similar errors in logic when fighting. Such as, "~You~ attack the ~foo~. ~You~ miss the ~foo~. ~Foo~ is killed." Also the same when the cute dog attackes. The cute dog missed, yet the enemy died right after the blow? .. Weird.

hmm, an extra damage dice throught defenses for critical element?

Hmm, This Gives Me An Idea; If SOMEONE Sees This Comment Please Tell Your Opinion,

To Make This Casino Bullshit Dissappear, We Can Create An ADOM COMMENTERS COMMUNITY (ACC), Which Anyone Can Join (Still Making Possible The Original Comment Mode Same As Always) But This (Reponsible) Members Has The Power Of Modifying Comments Or Erasing Them;

Having Our "Headquarters" That For Banning Those Who Join For Creating Havoc In This Place.

I Think That, If We Use This Comment System, Is Our Responsability To Keep It Clean, So I'll E-Mail Thomas Biskup With This Idea, Hoping That He Will See This With An Open Mind.

The Design of Everyday Things Thomas Biskup recommends: The Design of Everyday Things
"I really believe that most software engineers think too little about the usability of their products. This book provides indepth thoughts on how to design usable items (not necessarily software) and how not to design usable tools. Many issues are adressed and the author shows a profound knowledge of the topics at hand (which is to be expected since he is teaching design for... many years). His writing is concise, yet humourous, which is a definite plus in my opinion. Every software engineer worth his money should be required to read this book! "

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

  • 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!
