Dungeons of Dredmor – Massive Update Released

Gaslamp Games released a massive update for their indie game, Dungeons of Dredmor. This update includes a number of fixes and tweaks. It also adds an automatic save support as the game will now automatically save before going up and down stairs. The update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and you can view its entire changelog after the jump. Be warned though… it’s huge!
Dungeons of Dredmor Update Changelog:
-Fixed: crash that occurred when moving up stairs or down stairs, involving summoned pets
-Fixed: shopkeepers doing odd things when picking up and dropping items after load/save, including crashing.

-Fixed: crash that just sort of happened randomly to a bunch of people, but it’s fixed now.
-Fixed: merchandise flag not cleared when you go downstairs
-Fixed: backwards conditional logic on ranged monster attacks means that monsters were not consistently casting spells; fixing this makes the Dungeon 95.2% nastier.

-Fixed: knightly leap now operates in all correct chess positions.
