Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

New Singing Sword is obnoxious to use

Every time it sends out a blast of sound it forces –more-- which is super-disruptive to game flow. It’s an awesome weapon but I’m considering not even using it on the character who found it because of how annoying it is.

Sounds like this should be adjustable via rcfile. Does it actually force a more prompt with the default rcfile or do you have some customized setting that causes it?

The only thing I've ever changed in an .rc file is autobutcher.

Was this thread inspired by the reddit thread a few days ago? In any case, this was fixed following that Reddit thread and the force_more is gone in trunk.

Nope, I don't follow DCSS on reddit. Just playing the game, found the Singing Sword, was annoyed. Anyway, I'm glad it was fixed.
