Might be that in order to make it compatible with monster spells patch (and to make it work without failed hunks) you need to "hand code" it. I think I got it to work with slashem but I can't remember (since I have added a whole lot of patches).[Quote]

Looks to have good ideas, but unfortunately this patch does not apply cleanly to nethack-3.4.3 source:

Hunk #3 FAILED at 621.
1 out of 3 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file src/steal.c.rej

After a few minutes of fooling around, I've concluded it's not just a simple fix like moving the block to the new location.[Quote]

I like the idea. Unfortunately, this patch is incompatible with L's great "Monster Spells Patch" [http://bilious.alt.org/?184], which makes encounters with spellcasters much more interesting.[Quote]

Pet ranged attacks are one of those things that has been a long time in coming. It might have unforseen game effects, but I think this is a case where, if it does, it should be balanced around, not excluded.[Quote]
