  • Wand wresting happens always when an empty wand is zapped with a chance depending on BUC state if an effect is produced
  • Putting blessed and uncursed scrolls of charging into a bag of tricks charges it
  • Picking up scrolls of scare monsters change BUC from blessed to uncursed to cursed
  • Picked up scrolls of scare monsters only turn to dust if they are cursed

  • Don’t autopickup unpaid items
  • Change default of shopkeeper sell prompt to ‘n’
  • Added naming last broken object to #name menu

  1. I’m curious, hardfought says it’s running Unnethack 5.3.2, how does that tally with 5.2.0?

    • “This is a release that brings the released version up to speed with the version that is already deployed at public servers.”

      Hardfought is running the development version. 5.2.0 is functionally equivalent to the 5.3.1 version. 5.3.2 has a few more commits already.

  2. unchozo32b.bmp fails
