Description

Using 3.0.9.e just upgraded from 3.0.5
Any attempt to sell anything in a store gets the message
'I do the selling and you do the buying'
No ironman settings or similar turned on
Messages go
e.g.

You drop a Trident 1d8 (+5,+6)

I do the selling and you do the buying

The Trident remains in my inventory.

I also note that the shop inventories skip some letters - don't remember this from the past, e.g.
a)

c)

f)

g)

...

1)

2)

3)

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Anthony

Hi there!

I'm not familiar with 3.0.9e, but it is possible you are playing an older patched version of Angband in which selling has been disabled. I believe Eddie Grove (could be what the e stands for) has released just such a version at some point in the past, however selling is available in all official releases, which can be downloaded from the Official Angband Homepage.

Some store letters are skipped because the shop code was changed such that you select the item you want to buy before you enter the purchase command. In previous versions, you enter the purchase command first, and then select the item you want to buy. The missing letters correspond to commands you might need to enter.

For other questions, comments, advice, or general discussion, try the Angband Forums or the newsgroup rec.games.roguelike.angband. Hope to see you there soon!
