#2 grisha5 Sat, 24 Oct 2015 01:28:55
Oh and symmetry broken.

#3 ThePathfinder Mon, 26 Oct 2015 13:59:54
And someone fixed it.Not me,I promise.

#4 grisha5 Tue, 27 Oct 2015 01:29:17
Broken again. Now takes 2 votes to fix.

#5 ThePathfinder Sat, 31 Oct 2015 08:32:23
I played some Angband games and I found that when loading a dead character and viewing his chardump,it says that he is in "Nowhere town lv 0",so I assume that NetHack could has that,and that can explain why different characters start with different amount of money and different items.

#6 ThePathfinder Mon, 14 Mar 2016 12:13:33
It has a obsolete reference to the game "Arvale 2:Ocean of Time" by PDAmill.
That game is only released for Windows Mobile(CE) and I don't think people still uae that platform.
