    Hello,

    I think I found a bug which nerfs the enemy AI.

    In the original rules/protos.tab there are actually 334 fields for some entries. This last field has been chopped off in the Patch version of the file. The field is not documented in the sticky, but I believe it takes its values from rules/strategy.tab. For example, there's a Tripper entry in the strategy.tab which some of the Temple bugbears have as their 334th field in protos.tab (e.g. 14158, 14162, 14166, 14170, 14174, 14178). I noticed that the Tripper entry in rules/strategy.tab has a "trip" field (and a "use potion" field) which explains at least one of the bug reports I've seen on the Atari forum.

    I suspect that restoring these fields will make the game a bit harder :)

    Here are the values that this field takes in the pre-patch version of protos.tab and their corresponding entries:
