Release 112 changelog:

  • Your tame creatures now have a heart badge beside them to identify them as such.
  • Switching to a different tile res will no longer cause a crash. (Inu)
  • Building the tile choice list now comes from the internal allbitmaps.h rather than being hardcoded, so Ibson the Grey’s tiles will show up as expected. (Inu)
  • Entering a level with active lava/water from a level which has no active lava/water, when the new level is already created and previously visited this game, will no longer stop the updating of said lava and water. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Hopefully backspace will work on OSX. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Jumping in space prohibited if you lack spacewalk. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Jumping when buried prohibited. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Kobold thieves are pluralized properly. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Living frosts are now bloodless. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Digging upwards on special levels has more sensible results. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Remove the console window on Windows.
  • Shattered trees will drop their occupants. (Nathan Bogue)
  • Items that fall down holes will no longer be mapped. (patch by Richard Quirk)
  • PSP Makefile should be happier with newer devkits. (patch by Joe Buck)
  • Left and Right on menus will scroll fast, just like L and R do, but this also applies to the command menu where L and R are the quick bind keys. (patch by Joe Buck)
  • [SDL] Shift-arrow will swap with a critter, Alt-arrow will jump. (patch by Andreas Bohm)
  • ctype.h is included in map2c.cpp now. (Ben Hjelt)
