Neither monster should ever be able to be seen, since they are 11th monsters on levels.

Occasionally the game screws up and gives you one, though I cannot see any reason why they should.

Cyclops is an 11th, but he's the 11th of 11, and level 12's offset is wrong, so he shows up as the first level 12. I think apparentlyweak old woman and great ogre of the north fail to appear due to this shift (I think).

But I'm doubting all of this right now.

How does Turbo Pascal's random function work? The standard LCM methods for generating random numbers give you a number from (0,1], ie 1 is a possibility but 0 is not. If you then multiply by 10 and truncate, you have a number that is between 0 and 10 inclusive, but 10 is a superrare occurrence (only once in the period of generator).

This could explain the 11th monster error and possibly shed light on why we don't see Apparently Weak Old Woman.

The 11th monster error is because they offset in the monster file by 11*(level-1)+ random from 1 to 10 (instead of random from 1 to 11).

Screaming Eunich. Never seen this one before and the only reference in the forums is this page.

Cool! :shock:

Yet another dastardly misspelling! :rant: It's "eunuch," for crying out loud. And I've seen that monster maybe once or twice.

It's not nice to refer to the other players you zoom past like that, LadyLord.

I've often wondered if UNIX is a clever programmer pun of some sort.

Isn't that funny...

When you come take a look after thousand years in a place you like very much, and the first topic you enter (pure random) has your name on it ?

Gee, there was I, almost 4 years ago, pissed with 'newbie helper's'.

Funny, really.

Ãh.... well... for the 54th time, HI.
