mwedel 2002-09-28 02:19 Rev.: 1740

Mostly bugfixes, but the addition of a wiz 'hide' command which makes the
wiz out of sight so to speak.
common/loader.l, common/loader.c: Fix bug where flag values were being saved
with actual value of the flag (eg, 32768, 16, etc) instead of 1/0 value -
Code effectively worked the same, just was a bit odd looking at save files.
include/player.h: Add hidden element to player structure.
include/sproto.h: Add command_hide(), update proto for players_on_map()
lib/, lib/ add wizhelp/hide file.
server/apply.c: Add error checking to converts so it doesn't crash if the
converter doesn't have a proper other_arch. Modify shopmats so that they
don't transport spell effects, like fireballs an burning hands.
server/attack.c: Modify code so players can drain other players exp.
server/c_misc.c: Modify various functions to not show info on hidden DM.
server/c_wiz.c: Add command_hide(), clean up command_invisible() a bit.
server/commands.c: Add hide command to dispatch table.
server/main.c: Add code to not update players on map for hidden dm.
server/player.c: Give hidden dm perpetual invisiblity.
server/skills.c: Only get exp if you actually stole an item - fixes abuse
whereby players who couldn't carry item could continually 'steal' it from
monster and just gain exp.
server/swap.c: modify players_on_map() to take addition arg to determine if
real players on map should be shown, or if we shouldn't count hidden dms.
socket/info.c: Modify code so that oldsockets don't get reports on high verbose
socket/metaserver.c: Modify metaserver update to not include hidden dms.
utils/ update datestmp.

server/apply.c, server/c_wiz.c, server/player.c: When players saves, reset
pl->map to be NULL - otherwise, the map they saved on can reset, and the
memory pl->map points to gets re-used, so when it tries to access that memory,
it crashes. Changes to apply.c and c_wiz.c necessary to make sure we do map
cleanup before calling play_again.

Added blinding resistances to many monsters.
I have tried my best to distribute these blinding
resistances not at random, but in reasonable
and consistent ways:

Dragons and demons are now mostly immune to blinding.
IMO they have such omnipotent senses that merely
blinding their eyes doesn't help. Lesser forms of
these creatures don't have full immunity though.

The undead are well resistant to blinding as they
don't have biological eyes, which makes it harder to blind them.
Only few of them are totally immune however.

Angels are also well resistant to blinding. Being
minions of Valriel they have experience with blinding
"techniques" and thus know how to protect against it.

Also immune to blinding are creatures which just don't
have any eyes. E.g. giant worms, slimes and crawling chaos.

All humaniod monsters, including the orcish and trollish
races, remain without blinding resistance.
Most low-level monsters generally have either low or no
blinding resistance (as long as they have eyes).

Extremely vulnerable to blinding are one-eyed creatures:
Cyclopses, dreads and beholders.

[Sidenote: I have reduced cyclops experience from 400000
to 250000 which I think is still more than enough.]

More bugfixes:
common/loader.l, loader.c: Fix up the handling with speed with respect
to style maps - the objects were still getting put on the active
common/map.c: Fix up blocked_link() to behave more like the
blocked_two() function - inventory checkers and door handling.
Comment out blocked_two since it isn't used anymore. Modify
load_objects to remove objects on style maps from the active
list. Remove some of the debug messages about map loading.
common/object.c: Add remove_from_active_list() function for use
in map.c to remove objects from active list.
common/porting.c: Comment out debug message if open_and_uncompress()
can open a file - caller of the function should print out messages,
and it really isn't much of an error in any case.
include/libproto.h: rebuilt.
random_maps/special.c: Modify place_special_exit() - this should fix
bug of very large treasure maps - problem was if the generated map
size was too small, when generate_random_map was called, it would
generate a newly sized map that was much larger. Code was also
re-arranged some to make it a little more readable.
server/attack.c: Fix crash when creature may not have an owner and
it kills something else.
server/move.c: comment added - no code change.
socket/request.c: Fix off by one error in esrv_send_animation() -
rare condition as it only showed up when trying to send the last
animation (zombie) - only an issue if the player is put on top of
a zombie for some reason (no other space for them) - observed when
leaving the random dungeon in the undead church in scorn without
clearing out all the zombies first.

I had to re-adjust some of the recently changed levels
in pupland monsters. As maintainer of the pupland set I
hope it is okay when I do this, have written on the
list about it too.

Some monsters just need those levels to be able to
hit and damage high level players.
Evil Masters are a somewhat special case:
I have moved most all attributes out of the map into
the arches (So the arches contain the "real version").
The reason for this is I fear the fallback to
arch-values when these monsters happen to apply equipment.

This change mostly deals with improving behaviour of pet monstes.
Most of the code is from K. Reinert - however, I did some code cleanup/
fixes related to pet monsters, so it is difficult to note where
each piece of code came from. One thing this does fix is handling of
multipart pets - these now work properly.
common/map.c: Update comment for get_rangevector() - no code change.
common/object.c: Add get_search_arr() which is used in pet monster code.
This returns a semi random scrambling of the freearr array.
doc/Developers/protocol: Update documentation about map1a protocol command.
include/libproto.h, include/sproto.h: rebuilt.
server/attack.c: Have drain attacks return 1 damage so that it is clear
that you are actually hitting your opponent. Otherwise, you would
get messages that 'you missed xyz', even though you are draining it.
This extra point of damage shouldn't change balance in any significant
server/monster.c: Update hnadling of enemies for pet monsters. It should
more intelligently choose the monsters and not switch/clear the
enemy field for no reason anymore. Change find_nearest_living_creature to
use the get_search_arr() to more randomly choose direction of target -
before, there was a proclivity to always look in the north direction.
Modify can_hit() to look for closes part of enemy - otherwise, monsters
may not attack opponents even if they were right next to them because
they couldn't get to the enemies head. Remove move_object from
this function - merged with move_ob in move.c
server/move.c: Fix move_ob to use 'cleaner' code of move_object, but
also have specific features that move_ob had (player handling).
Before move_ob didn't handle multipart objects correctly, and the
two functions were largely the same. Now move_object() just calls
move_ob - the only difference in the functions is that move_ob()
takes 3 parameters instead of 2 of move_object() (added
parameter is originator). I think this should now mean multipart
player objects may now work.
server/pets.c: get_pet_enemy enhanced to be much smarter about
selecting/finding things for the pet to attack.
server/player.c: Remove commented out line of init_beforeplay
