    So, for some unknown reason, I am unable to see the script in svn. Any advice? I'm on the latest version as far as I can tell.

Under normal circumstances KoLmafia will only try and fetch that file once a day so the first suggestion would be to try again. A second suggestion would be to delete svnrepo.json in your data subdirectory and try again. The menu is getting quite full and you might try and sort on author's name in both the Manage and Install tabs. (Veracity). If you find it on the Manage tab then it is already installed. Otherwise it should be on the Install tab.

    There is a possibility of errors in the file but since I am not seeing them on my system I am focused on how your system's status might be different.
    Well, thank you.

    Ok, to clarify my issue, I can't see in the script manager. I search for "Beach", but there aren't any results.

    My understanding is that mafia tries to down load and read the file. Then, whether the file was downloaded or not, it builds the Scripts menu by traversing your svn directory (which contains installed scripts). If somethign in svn had an entry in the file then it merges the information. If something is in svn but not in the file (for whatever reason) it still includes an entry in the Scripts menu. Entries that are in the file but not in svn show up under the Install tab.

    So if it works tomorrow, all is good. If not then, with my recent change, if you have no svnrepo.json file then you are having an issue downloading.
    Well, thank you.

    Revision 192 does this:

    Default strategy is now "random".
    A driftwood beach comb is as good as a Beach Comb, as far as this script is concerend.
    Command argument can be a (positive) number, "free", or "all".

    And I like "random". This happened this morning when I was using up my remaining turns before ascending:

    Code:
    Encounter: Comb the Beach (4819 minutes down the beach)
    > 100 squares in beach 4819 contain rough sand
    > Combing the square at coordinates 10,48190 which contains rough sand
    Took choice 1388/4: (secret choice)
    choice.php?whichchoice=1388&option=4&coords=10%2C48190
    Encounter: Comb the Beach
    You acquire an item: cursed pirate cutlass
    You acquire hamethyst (5)
    You acquire baconstone (5)
    You acquire porquoise (5)
    You gain 218,390 Meat
    That's on row 10 - the farthest from the waves. Had I been using "first", it would have gone to the row that is closest to the sea.
    Not that that probably matters; I suspect the contents of each square are random, rather than pre-seeded.

    Hmm. I just noticed I got a bunch-o-Meat. I need to report that at the end, along with the cumulative items.
