YASD 60 to 0

Newish player here. Was trying out OpGl, (I know it's not recommended to do Octopi fighter's but I wanted to try it).
Found a randart +11 rapier ( pierce, rN++, rElec, +Inv(ability to go invisible at will), *Drain) in D6 sewer vault.
I'm ecstatic, this is the best weapon I've ever found, feels great I start cruising through.
Later in D9..while I'm invisible, a regular old orc hits me, turns out its abyssal brand...get sent to the abyss(I'm XL10)...death by bone dragon...
I have to stop playing this game for a bit...

It's pretty good for a while!

Short blades are not super great for getting your first win though.

When did "always show brands on enemy weapons" happen? I only play trunk so I'm used to getting a nice "stop and look at this important message: DISTORTION BRAND wielded by that guy" pause (that may not be in the default config) whenever it happens.

Welcome to crawl, you haven't been 'initiated' until the game gut punches you like this.

It's present in last stable too.

OP, add "flash_screen_message+=distortion" to your profile, it will make your screen flash once for most monsters with distortion weapon.

Re: YASD 60 to 0

Oh, how do I add that to my profile? I appreciate the advice!
My first win was as a Felid Monk, so I'm not that familiar with weapons yet.

If you play offline, add the line to init.txt in settings directory.
If you play online, there is usually a link "edit settings" or alike on the page where you start a game.

Re: YASD 60 to 0

Welcome to Crawl!

The distortion brand is known to be really nasty. I've had similar experiences in the past: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=18328

My suggestion is to edit your configuration file so that the game stops with a "More" message ("force_more_message") on encountering an enemy wielding a weapon of distortion:

  Code:
force_more_message += is wielding.*of distortion
force_more_message += Space bends around you
force_more_message += Space warps.*around you

Return to YASD! YAVP! and characters in progress too
