I'm not sure where to put this so because this is the catch all forum, I'll just slam it here. How often does the settings folder change?

Health/Magic Bars Too Dark

Hi, I'm playing DCSS trunk, 0.14-a0-2632-gd2f732a (today's build) in Tiles on Windows 8 and the health and magic bars are extremely dark and almost blend into the background. Normally this wouldn't be that big of a deal and I have been ignoring it but I'm currently playing a lava orc and it's extrem...

Re: The 'Questions too small to need their own thread' threa

I'm playing Trunk, and my spell failure %s with a couple spells are displayed in red. Lightning Bolt is 45%, and Bolt of Cold and Freezing Cloud are 100%. My spellcasting is 4.1, my Conjurations is 6.9 and my Air Magic is 2.2. I'm not wearing any armor or wielding a shield. Why are they red?

Is there ever any point where a character specializing in unarmed should switch to weapons? Transmuters have this covered by Blade Hands, but how about other builds, such as troll berserkers?

Auto-spell?

I might just be stupid, but in the latest version of trunk (4788) there's a way to make a certain spell default (it asks if you want to cast it whenever you cast a spell) Evaporate was set to this and I have no idea how, or how to turn it off. Is it because I'm playing a Transmuter?

I had bad slowdown too, using tiles-0.8.0-a0-4377-g2e00b12. However, now that I switched to tiles-0.8.0-a0-4390-gc2f102f, it's gone. Even with the new command console present.

I have similar stats to Regnix, except I have a GeForce 9400, and Windows 7.

Don't assume you can stave off hunger with transmuted potions of water, either - you still have to chop chunks. I learned the hard way.
