#1694 closed bug (worksforme)

Veins don't light up properly under some circumstances in text mode.

Reported by: Red Owned by: molybdenum
Milestone: 3.5.0 Keywords:


When in text mode, the veins (magma/quartz) usually don't light up properly, though sometimes they do.

Note that they light up properly in graphics mode!

From the looks of it, the squares only light up if the vein is on the screen when you load a new level, though I can't verify this.

Reproduce: Create a new game, go into the dungeon a and find quartz/magma veins. (%) Ideally not on the original screen you appeared on.

Confirmed on:
Windows 3.4
Android 3.3.2, 3.4
Ubuntu 3.3.2
OSX 3.4dev (2012/10/14, by myshkin, thanks for your time)

Upon further investigation, I was certain I checked that, but apparently, I was too tired.

In terrain.txt:

  • Magma veins are color "s"
  • Quartz veins are color "w"

"w" light up properly but "s" acts weird on all platforms, or at least not as one would expect for a wall.

Chaging magma veins to "w" fixes the undesired effect, however I would beleive we'd rather keep magma veins a different color...

Even more notes... And why one should not log bugs at 2am.

I just remembered, back in the 16color days, that the "dark grey" was actually "light black", so to speak, this means that the "s" color is already "illuminated" per say, since the "light" flag in the byte is already set...

I didn't notice the color difference since nowadays term windows are so small, the contrast wasn't noticeable on that tiny character...

Still in 3.4.1 obviously... Is there anyone objecting the validity of putting the color to "w"?
