Mistakes in manual and readme
Some issues with the manual and readme

In the manual:

- In the section "The Price of the Game":

"ADOM is available for free as long as you honor the license of the
game (either see the file 'license.doc' or type 'adom -b' at your
command-line)."

License.doc no longer ships with the game, so that should be removed.

- In the section "The Game":

"Next, the background of your character will be described. The game
will mention your sex and race (in case fate is responsible for your
race) and then detail your life prior to starting your adventure."

The game mentions the character race even if it hasn't been decided by fate, so the text between parentheses should be removed.


In the readme:

- In section II.A:

The section describing the link http://www.aleph-null.com/adom/index.html should be removed as unfortunately the Drakalor Chain Board of Tourism has been offline for a while now.

- In section III.A:

The section "How about a graphical version of ADOM?" should be updated with the current progress in this department.

- In section III.B:

Some information should be provided about the post-campaign situation.

- In section III.C:

There should be some instructions about how and where to donate specifically.

- In section V.O:

There seem to be no cheat codes in the game anymore in the versions released to the public, and because of this even the old 2000 version of the Spoiler FAQ does not list any.

- In section VI.A:

adom.prc does not exist anymore in current releases, so section 3 should be updated to reflect this.

- In section VI.B:

CWSDPMI.DOC no longer ships with the game.

- In section VI.C:

There is now a native windows port so this section should be modified to say that the problems described apply to running the DOS version directly from windows.

Given the current spike in development activity, I thought why not bump this report.

Some really good catches here if they're all still current! I particularly like the idea of changing

"Next, the background of your character will be described. The game
will mention your sex and race (in case fate is responsible for your
race) and then detail your life prior to starting your adventure."

How about

"After you've made your choices, the background of your character will be described. The game will detail your life prior to starting your adventure (including a reminder of your race and gender if needed)."


The section "How about a graphical version of ADOM?" should be updated with the current progress in this department. --- this is really important, too. :)
