Description

"The cheat_know option for "know complete monster info" lies about resistances.
For example: I saw a will-o'-the-wisp and its monster recall claimed "It resists bright light, rock remover, and poison, and does not resist fire, cold, etc...", but in reality it resists all four base elements.
After I cast firebolt on it, the recall changed to say that it DID resist fire, and so on for each element

I realised shortly after this that Angband 4 added the new system with lore.txt, so I just edited that with the contents of monster.txt instead of using cheat_know, and monster resistances started displaying properly.

But I have to ask: why does cheat_know still exist, then? Why are there two very different ways to do the same thing?" - GenericPseudonym
