When you enter a room, goblins attack immediately. This isn't to say that they attack after you move. They do damage as soon as you enter a room. If you press undo or restart (the damage is still done) and the damage would bring you below 0, your health is set to 0 and you can move around normally, and any attack that would deal you damage kills you.

In addition, when you are walking on closed doors, goblins and waterskippers attack you, but seep do not. For this, it should either be all attack you, or just seep attack you, but not the way it is now.

Probably only seeps, to be consistent with normal DROD

As well as consistent with what is explicitly stated in the in-game help files....

I'd like to add my name to the list of people asking that the behavior be changed to be consistent with the in-game help files - that is, no monsters can score these extra attacks while the player is on a raised door and they aren't.

Mostly because I ran into this behavior while looking through the help files, built a room dependent on that behavior, and then found out that the behavior was buggy, so I have to scrap the room.

Fix submitted to SVN. (29/12/10)

Definite bug. Problem is in Monster.cpp.

CMonster::IsTileAboveMe
Click here to view the secret text

In short, the routine should return true only if the target tile is 'above' the monster. Flying correctly returns false. If the target tile is not an 'elevated tile', then it correctly returns false. But if it is, then it lastly checks the monster's tile, and it returns true if that is 'elevated'. It should obviously be the other way around, so it just needs to negate the return value.
