- When assigning keys, Equipement is called CMD_EQUIPEMENT.
- Share character stats option does apparently nothing else than
moving to the top of Character screen and preventing from closing
it (nether exit nor menu keys work, tho the screen can be normally
scrolled up and down. Only way to get rid of Character screen is
to restart the application).

Thanks. I noticed the send char dump issue myself this morning. I'll release 1.20.7 soon.

Hold on a second, there's more:
- Reinstituting this thin stripe that separates options caued
it to also appear in messagebox between lines of text.
- New feature with Charm wearing off affects the Ranger's
Dog too. While hilarious to watch Ranger being killed by his
own pet, I guess this shouldn't really happen.
 ;)

Haven't had much time to try other stuff, but there might be
some other less apparent issues as well. I don't know how
about this version, but yesterday I had my last playthrough
with 1.20.6 and found another uber bow that had no suffix
in its name. Supposedly plain Recurve Bow had 12 Attack
and Burn plus Slow enchantments. Wha the hell?

Thanks.

* Removed the divider from the messagebox.
* Prevented inherently charmed from turning hostile.

The Recurve bow:

* It has a base attack of 7.
* When created it can have attack between 6-8.
* On top of that it can be created with extra enchants and stat buffs (what's described below applies to enchants in general).
* The stat buffs are in the range of -1 to 2 (bell shaped distribution)
* The primary stat (the one with the highest base value) of the item has a stat buff range of -1 to 4 (bell shaped distribution)
* If the item is also generated with an on hit effect such as stun or poison item gets an additional 1 point on all stats

This means that a recurve bow should be able to have a max attack from the start 8 (base) + 1 (enchantbonus) + 4 (stat buff range) = 13.

Here's the distribution of 10000 random gaussian/bell shaped numbers between -1 and 4:

-1 = 73 0.73%
0 = 1260 12.6%
1 = 3633 36.329998%
2 = 3749 37.49%
3 = 1199 11.990001%
4 = 86 0.86%

Maybe I should ignore the enchant bonus of +1? Maybe I should change the primary stat bonus range to -1 to 3?

The problem isn't with having such strong items, they're fun
and very rare. Problem is that ranged weapons don't have
any indicator of being "bette than average". Say if you find
a dagger with 1 more Attack than a regular one, its called
a Fine Dagger, going further, it might be a Warrior's Dagger,
Swift Vorpal Dagger, etc. However ranged weapons just have
their plain names even if they were created with extra Attack
and on-hit effects. Bows of Concussion, Poison, Slowing or
Fire have the bonus included in their name guaranteed, but
a regular one can just as well have those bonuses or even
more.

What I'm asking for is some kind of prefix that would make
their superior quality apparent at the first glance.

Ah, got it! Yes, that would be a good change. Doing it right now.
