Another minor issue, where the min damage of a weapon becomes more than the max damage due to bonuses. Example included below.

I know. It's strange looking, but it basically will work as if the numbers were flipped around.

Oh. I guess that's cool, then. Cheers!

This seems to throw a lot of people. It might not be a bad idea to test for the smaller number to display first. Just as a question of polish.

I've thought of doing that. Code wise it would be pretty easy, but it is likely to throw off people in other ways. Maybe if I flipped them around it would be less noticeable overall though.

I don't see where it displays the base values of the item anywhere, does it?
If not, I don't see how anyone is likely to notice without digging into the data files.

Digging into the data files is what I love to do! I have even created a new artifact sword called Ragnarok. It is twice as large as any normal sword, looks so funny.

No you can't see the base stats anywhere unless you have a normal version of the weapon. I think I'm just going to flip the numbers around in 1.008 and see if anyone ever notices. :)

I had a similar problem in 1.006, but what I noticed was different:

Note the "30 to 30 damage" clashes quite distinctly with the "15.0 damage per second"

Sorry if this is late, or in the wrong place, or whatever.

I'm guessing that in this case, the speed = 2 means that you can swing the quarterstaff once every two seconds for a hit of 30 every time, giving the 15 dps that is seen... looks OK to me...:confused:

Yeah, what Kruztee said is right. The dps calculation is correct.
