    GnollHack Bug Reports and Issues

    @hothraxxa Hi, we will ask our server specialist to look into the root of the problem. It seems almost as if the server run out of disk space, but there's plenty of it left, so it really can't be the reason and thus it is hard to say yet what happened. It seems very odd that the dumplog file...

    GnollHack Bug Reports and Issues

    Hi, in GnollHack, advancing with two-weapon fighting is currently implemented so that you need to hit successfully 20 times with you left-hand weapon to advance to basic level. In vanilla, this may work differently. I tested this with a samurai in debug mode and it seemed to work as intended...

    GnollHack Bug Reports and Issues

    Hi, this is the way vanilla NetHack works. However, carrying capacity is higher in GnollHack, so squeezing can happen easier. Nevertheless, we will add a yes/no question to choose whether one wants to squeeze as a new feature in the next version of GnollHack, as you suggest.

    GnollHack Feature Discussion

    Hi, the skill slot costs were indeed a bit unnecessarily onerous. We updated the bare handed combat and martial arts skill slot costs to be: Bare handed: 1 / 1 / 2 Martial arts: 2 / 3 / 3 / 4 / 4 Also, as a bonus, the skill advancement (enhance) page tells you the double-hit chance at each...

    GnollHack Feature Discussion

    Thanks, we'll keep these in mind. In some fantasy games, e.g. dwarves have firearms, so it might be worthwhile to think about them. But maybe this should be somehow combined with mixing gunpowder etc. to make it slightly more interesting, maybe sort of another type of technological magic feel to...

    GnollHack Bug Reports and Issues

    Ok, lances work now as before, and fortune cookies are working as well. I updated the Windows binaries and the public game servers. We can think about how spears should work.

    Finally, it looks like lance is not a polearm, pickaxe, or axe, which are the only appliable weapons. What did lance do by applying before? You should still be able to joust monsters if you are riding, which is I guess what a lance is supposed to do.

    So the problem with fortune cookie was that there is another new data field indicating the % chance of the effect, which was accidentally 0% rather than 100%. Thanks for this bug report.

    GnollHack Bug Reports and Issues

    Probably not. Those are probably unintended consequences of various system changes, i.e., they have become bugged as we have changed the code to be a bit more sensible. For example, the effects of eating food were hard-coded for each food item in the code, while there is now a data field for...

    Hi transcendreamer, Many thanks for the feedback, and we are very happy to hear that you are liking the game. We will probably make a separate forum for posting new ideas and commenting on old features going forward, but currently it is ok to post all such topics here. We have indeed thought...

    Hi Rahn, thanks for the report. I'm happy you are enjoying the game. I will look into the two-weapon skill training. I think the correct behavior should be to train the two-weapon fighting skill AND both weapon skills, but I cannot recall from the top of my head what the behavior in the game is...
