Draconian monk... Potential, or waste?

This isn't a character in progress yet, as none have even lived to temple. (Anything other then cowardly lurking mummy mages is a bit beyond my normal scope.) But I'm eyeing it as viable melee (unarmed combat) build. Draconian picks up tail swipes automatically, and gets an armor bonus as it levels....

Re: [Tiles 0.12.2] Garbled graphics, broken game.

I got so used to playing tiles, that going back to ASCII characters threw me off fairly bad. I learned to recognize things by those cute little tiles. And while I tend not to play with a mouse, if I need to instantly examine multiple locations/targets, mouse is first choice there. Losing access to t...

Re: [Tiles 0.12.2] Garbled graphics, broken game.

Graphics drivers updated (found a windows button to do it, with a bit of help. Wasn't able to narrow my PC model down any further then 'E-series'), and no change. However, this has become something LESS of an issue, given that the webtiles online version appears to function for me, with no issues (s...

Re: [Tiles 0.12.2] Garbled graphics, broken game.

Typing 'intel extreme graphics' into the search portion of the intel website brings up about 75 results. How do I find the exact chipset of my graphics on my computer? (Again, something of an idiot, not sure how I find out about this.)

Re: [Tiles 0.12.2] Garbled graphics, broken game.

1. Split the tilesheets up more; how this split would work I'm not sure but for memory management purposes it would seem reasonable to have per-branch sheets for branch-native walls, floors, monsters; and then global sheets for stuff used everywhere. Some might need arbitrarily splitting up further...

[Tiles 0.12.2] Garbled graphics, broken game.

Came back after a long absence online. Updated to new version of Stone Soup. Picked up and ran, everything seemed fine... until my mouse moved. As soon as my mouse moves anywhere, for any reason, I end up with a large quantity (read: All) graphics on the screen being replaced by flickering garbage. ...

Re: Documentation problem... Weird one.

Oops. Can't believe I left that out. Windows XP, and playing Stone soup 0.9.1, from the zip, not the installer.

The file it is (incorrectly) referencing is *not* in the crawl folder, or anywhere near it.

Re: Some god questions.

So what is penance, for any god, and how do I get rid of this status? Fast! My lack of a halo is painful to my monk.

Re: Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

Your poison will clear up one turn after you decide to drink heal wounds, wasting the potion.

Some god questions.

Two questions (at the moment). Non-critical: Can altars to Lugonu be generated outside the abyss? Critical: What the hell did I do to p*** off the shining one?! Piety says penance. Happened after an arrow hit an ogre, but it's an enemy. Arrow is unbranded. More importantly, how do I fix this, fast. ...

Re: Feasability of pure melee builds?

@Eaki: By 'pure', I just meant a warrior who doesn't end up forgetting he has a sword. All my hybrid mages end up as pure mages, ignoring there weapon. In/Evocations sit just fine, as does shoot/throwing stuff. Just want to avoid becoming (Yet another) mage. What exactly is minimum delay? I know hig...

Re: Feasability of pure melee builds?

*laughs* Even my scummed characters in 400 never won, though two got three runes. Legitamate characters never got 1. Hearing people talk about all the runes makes my jaw hurt from hitting the floor. I *Really* don't like Trog. Too many berserk related deaths... As for food, I usually only have probl...

Re: Feasability of pure melee builds?

I don't dislike ranged, just wanna ignore the Int stat and choose Str on every level. I only recognize some of those places you mentioned, apparently less of my knowledge from Crawl 400 b26 carries over then I thought. Ignorant question... What is 'Trunk'? Always had problems with piety on Ely and T...

Feasability of pure melee builds?

I've consistently played mages and warrior-mages for a while now, with mixed results, and I want to learn to play more effective pure melee oriented characters. My fighters/gladiators/etc. tend to die horribly around the temple. My mages often live to depths in the teens if they get off the ground, ...

Documentation problem... Weird one.

Just discovered DCSS and converted to it from Linleys Crawl V400 B26 tileset. (Big gap, I know.) DCSS is exhibiting a *very* odd error. Hitting ? followed by ! for the "Read Me!" option displays a documentation file for a different (and unrelated) program. Needless to say, this weirds me o...
