Hmm.. I don't know. Somehow I ended up with the wrong version (it didn't have the FOV change). Maybe I did something wrong.

Yes.. Its the same for Moria. Its a bit annoying, isn't it?

Thanks. I didn't think it was an issue and have already migrated the changes to Moria. You also changed the way in which "cave panels" are moved when you get near to the edges. I assume you did this because the visibility has changed. I've migrated that over, too.
I think that the infravision distances need to be changed as well. I need to have a look to better understand them.

The magically lit rooms are fully displayed when you stand one cell away from the floor in them (so in an entrance).

Sorry, I meant that it was checking cells adjacent to the player using a "radius" of 1 which I know is hard-coded.
Not all of the rooms are lit. Only rooms having an "fval" of 2 are lit. It was just that previously, you could only see up to 1 cell in any direction so that having a lit room would mean that its "revealed" when you get to an entrance.
Now that you can see up to 5 cells away, its slightly different. The magical light from the rooms (and thats what the source code calls it) should be added on to the visible range. Anyway, like I said, its probably too difficult to implement at the moment.
