Great!
What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

Thank you for the new release. :)
I played it a bit and so far the changes, especially on the manbeast side, seem pretty good.
I've had a couple of savegame crashes however, I'll play some more and see if there's any consistency on the crashes before I report back about it.

Alright. Here's a reproducable crash bug, happens everytime I try to equip a Shield on a Manbeast, have not yet tried to do so on other classes. Java Version: 1.60_18.

Saw it, tried it. Shields work well now.
There are two more things I've noticed. After a bit of playing the weather effects start to multiply. Meaning you can have a sunny yet foggy, yet rainy day all at the same time.

And the other thing, I got another crash on save. I can't reproduce it, seems entirely random.

I guess that's why I used to have release candidates before doing a public release :) thanks for the bug reports, they are very helpful :)

A few times a key has spawned in the castle behind a curtain. The key is totally invisible (The curtain is the only thing visible), and the only way to find it is by stepping on the curtain. I'm not sure this is exactly a bug, but something to be aware of.

Fixed the bugs, thanks!

If any of you wants to contribute to cvrl development, I'd appreciate a selection of remixes from OCRemix (http://ocremix.org/quicksearch/game/?qs_query=castlevania) for the MP3 version of the game! the needed tracks are on the cvrl.cfg file...

I think I will also mirror the MIDI files to MP3 using the remixes here: http://www.inverteddungeon.com/treasury/remix.html so there will be three possible music distros

I just fixed the MP3 player so it works much better than the former one!

It's amazing to see things get patched so fast. Thanks for all the work you're putting into this.
Anyways, should I report another one or will you hit me if I do? :P

I'll see if I can find some more until the next time it gets chosen in a Powerpoll.
