Wow, I'm getting my first Sparring combat log reports! Didn't know they were in the game. Thanks Toady!

Weird, the 1st human dialogue said he came from the mountainhomes.

I'm playing a new fortress in .11 and a Human said the same thing. I was confused...

I dont know if this is common knowledge, but it seems the Legacy versions still have a broken Graphics mode. Or is it just me not working the Init right?
Sorry for the bump on this question, but I'm still wondering. I downloaded vanilla DF .12Legacy from the site, and downloaded Ironhand's graphics pack. Of course, I needed to modify the init a bit because the init that comes with the Graphics Pack is for non-legacy versions. So I set the grid size and resolution to work correctly with a 18x18 graphics pack, and made sure I had all the files in the correct places. Started DF, not even a tileset (Tileset was of course set to ironhand.png, which was in my art folder). I have changed just about every variable in the init I can to get it to work - nothing changed.

So, I turned off graphics and just tried to use ironhand's tileset. Still having the same problem, except where text is supposed to me, theres just etches and scratches. I know I had my resolution set to gridsize x/y {times} 18.

Tileset was of course set to ironhand.png

Pretty sure that's your problem right there. Almost positive that Legacy uses .bmp files, not .png files.

I haven't checked since I'm not doing bugs until after the release (well, I'm doing bugs, in the additive sense).

Whoops, I posted this over in the .11 thread by mistake.  Apologies for crossposting.

If training is too slow with no Teaching skill, but can't be significantly increased without unbalancing it for high Teaching skill, then wouldn't it be a good idea to greatly increase the rate at which Teaching trains when instructing? That way training would start off very slow, but quickly reach a decent pace when teachers start skilling, without reaching the crazy pace that high skilled teacher + buffed learning rate would produce. Also, later expansions of your military wouldn't have to go through the initial slow period as you're guaranteed at least reasonably skilled instructors.

So if I want skills to rust half as fast, I need to set the counter in the raws at twice what it is now, is that right?

For those who use legacy versions, I'd love to hear *why*.

I can't fix bugs without bug reports, and the legacy vein won't be around forever (one hopes), so it's in your own best interest to chat about it. ^_^

Just to clarify, since skill rust works properly now and skills use attributes correctly does this mean skill gain for non-military jobs does work correctly now ?

I'm guessing this is save compatible with .11?

Yes. After about an hour, I had two miners who were doing masonry stuff each gain an attribute (strength on one and endurance on the other)

Yes.

P.S. to get your squads to do demonstrations, make sure they are "ACTIVE" (hit "s" to check). If they are INACTIVE, they will only do individual drills.

Holy heck. Elves spoke to me. I've *never* seen them come to me and complain about the forests before. I'm going to have to kill them all for *DARING* to speak to the mighty Dwarven Nation, of course... but still, it was a pleasureable new experience.

Now to start the magma pumps.
