Today, as I was playing IVANX, I drank from a fountain and noticed something new - I got hiccups ("Your diaphragm is spasming vehemently"). Apparently, it was added either in CVS, or LIVAN, or IVANX (hard to tell!). Anyone of you guys encountered this before?



Oh, and by the way, what does Willpower (Wil) stat (apparently also added in CVS) do? Take over some role earlier associated with Int/Wis?

I'd guess LIVAN or IVANX, but don't quote me on it.

Also, I believe Will affects god-relations. It's in the CVS.

Don't want to create a new topic, but here: I've found a new abuse in post-CVS derivates, ie. wish confirmation.

Since the game is nice enough to ask "Do you want to wish for..." and display a name of the item that the wish will result in, you can wish for eg. a "bottle" and then see what the potential bottle wished for contains. Thus, you can answer "no" until you get ommel fluids, for instance.

A nice thing to remove in future (amateur) patches

I don't think ommel fluids can be wished for...

They can, using the above method, because if you wish for any bottle of can, its content is randomised. In versions where you get a question to confirm your wish, you can actually see the content before confirming.

I meant with the above method. I have wished for bottles many a time, but never scored ommel fluids.

The hiccups are either LIVAN or CVS; so far the only changes I've made myself in IvanX are game mechanics and bug fixes.

IvanX is currently on the back burner, seeing as I got a new daughter last week. Woot for me! Also, remember that IvanX is on sourceforge.net/projects/ivanx, and that anyone can get the source with SVN and build it - so that see what you wish for mechanic can be removed by anyone with a bit of hacking.

It's possible. It's just that the chance of getting ommel fluids is like a chance of finding them, as compared to other things, so you'll have to try a lot of wishes.

Hmm... What are the chances of ommel fluids spawning then? I was of the opinion you couldn't wish for them because I tried to kill Petrus with nothing but thrown bottles (wished for, in WM, naturally) one time, and don't remember getting ommel fluids at all. It was some time ago however... I must've wished for between 30 to 50 bottles at least though...

Grats on your significant other's recent spawning, and hiccups are CVS.
