Turns out Jeff outright forgot this one. I coded it up myself in combat.c. For a chance of being petrified I did this:

r = (random # from 0 to 100) - target level + 0.5*attacker_level
if (r > 60) turns to stone

Petrification resisting items and magic immunity protect. Are people okay with this?

He didn't entirely forget it. You'll want to make sure to remove the existing conditional for it.

You are correct, I already removed it. I'm not sure why Jeff did that, a placeholder perhaps?

I would prefer no petrifacation touch cause it can get annoying in big fights where you are almost done some stupid basilisk freezes all my guys, Jeff should add option of a mirror shield so basilisks freeze themselves instead if you have one on =P

That's a design choice and you can penalize scenarios that use it too heavily. However, I don't see why it shouldn't be an option. It definitely can make fights interesting.

yes i agee with *i {who ownz}, petrifacation can be very annoying, but can give you more of an interesting battle and the tactics and stuff you use if you have to fight off lizards with the ability to turn you to stone {i stil think mirror shield would be good idea}.
you should play runescape casue they do have mirror shields for somtehing close to that purpose, but they still have them ;D

Protection from petrification items give immunity to it, of course.

Yes, but wouldn't that make you warn inside seeing a basilisk gaze and suddenly realize he's stone? Jeff should make some new graphics for that, basilisk stares,looks surprised,then becomes very very hard and falls down and shatters {a long time of work on just 1 monster right there lol} :cool:
