Bug #4994
Bug synopsis: Strange wish effects
Reported against: ADOM 1.1.1
Operating system: Windows XP
Submitted on: 2003-12-08, 05:13:15
Submitted by: Yo' Mama
Bug state: in progress
Bug description: 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 wish for a monster, the djinni declares "So be it!" Then you get the message, "The the djinni is gone." Typo there.

Also, I tried wishing for certain things and got goofs. I realize no sane person would wish for most of these things, but I still think ADoM really ought to know what they mean.

I wished for illness, and the djinni told me to choose again. I wished for sickness, and got a big temporary boost to speed, the same as if I'd wished for speed. I wished for ugliness, expecting my Ap to go down, but the djinni told me to pick again. I wished for Tactics, but like with an earlier bug report, my Tactics modifier improved while the djinni told me that was a foolish wish, and I should try again.

I tried wishing for "eternal damnation," but was told to try again. So I tried wishing for "damnation," thinking I'd get something to do with dooming, or maybe some demons, or an instakill. Instead I got satiation.
Bug evaluation: No evaluation so far.
Comments (6294): ADOM modify your wish to the nearest match. That's all. Dont expect a game understanding wishes for "sex" "high" or "tomorrow's test's question list".

though, being able to get high would be cool (woo-hoo-hoo)

I do wish that wishes could cure blindness though, that always annoyed me.

-- Steve (2005-02-20, 03:17:58)
I believe that wishing for high should make you very, very drunk. idiotic wishes should be accounted for too, but really, Thomas shouldn't spend time fixing bugs that are not critical, especially since Jade is up and coming(in a few years, but still...)
definetly something to code into jade, though

WTF is that Poker ? o_O some one should clean this spammmm Btw, ADOM is great, 2.5 years playing it :D

There are many bug reports infested with spam, it seems to me that i would not be a big job to code a bot for removing them. About the subject, i noticed a strange whis effect,
whishing for bracers of resistance gave amulets of rabies resistance.

-He is too "busy" to fix our bugs- We should play other games such as WarCraft III instead, etc.

hmmm... maybe someone put this spam to make thomas biskup deal with it...

what a waste of time, what does it give?

i'm almost sure that this guy notplaying adom anymore is the same person that said that adom is A Dump Of Mess.

yes thomas biskup advances pretty slow with adom, but he has a life, and besides works in programation proyects because he likes to, it's like if your mother wants you to eat all the food when you have eaten half dish,

yes, the food was pretty good, but it's up to you if how much you eat, the same thing happens with school, employ, sex, and everything you don't do the amount you want, in the moment you want.

Thomas Biskup is a person like you, not ADOM.

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.
