Problem with luck skill

Recommended Posts

thats because your luck skill is actually ever so slightly below 23, it's not quite there, and so gets rounded down to 22

the screeny just says 23, not 23.00

the number will be between 22.99 and 23.00 and rounds down to 22 by my thinking

two numbers behind comma?

it would be if it was about rounding, but the stats obviously have a floor-function^^
that means the system searches for the greatest integer lower than your stat value, like when you have 22.66 it's 22, at 2.9999999 it's 2, and at 3.000000001 it's 3

i realized that very early in the game when i got a little init down in the story, which made me drop to -0.2, and the system made a -1 of it =(

ps: floor and ceiling functions are higher mathmatics, you might never hear about that in normal maths classes, so you can either just believe what i say or check out [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floor_function"]floor and ceiling in wiki[/url] =D

yeah but this still doesnt make any sense ¬¬...if its -0.2 then it is -1 on your skills,but mine is 22 and in the fractions is 23.....thats odd its like im not gaining one point of skills,even when the number IS 23 not 22,99999


....think i've said the same thing you said....lol:Edit

that is a rounding problem: the game mechanics work on 3 (maybe more, but all i ever get to see is 3) digits after comma, but the stat info comes with 2
if you have between 22.995 and 22.999, the game will round up when showing you the stat, showing you 23.00, but the stat that actually influences the game is calculated from the 3 digit number the system has saved, and the floor of 22.998 is still 22 xD

and i'm sure the problem will solve itself the moment you get some luck in a combat^^
