Annex A - Calculation of affixes available for item - by Ruvanal

alvl = affix level. For an item this is the level that is used to compare to the level and max level as found in the prefix and suffix tables. When referring to a prefix/suffix it is the value listed in the level column.
ilvl = internal level (also referred to sometimes as the item level; better yet item creation level). This value is set at the time of an items creation. For monster drops the ilvl=mlvl. (BTW ilvl matches up with the terminology of the 1.07/1.08 cubemain.txt---'itemlevel pct a')
mlvl = monster level.
clvl = character level.
qlvl = quality level. This value is found in the level column of armor.txt, weapons.txt and misc.txt. This is the value that is used to create the weapXX and armoXX treasure classes.
magic_lvl = magic level bonus on some items. Currently the only ones that have this are wands (normal and exceptional, but not the elite ones), staves, orbs (all with a value of 1) and circlets (circlet=3, Coronet=8, Tiara=13, Diadem=1.

When an item is generated that has affixes the alvl is calculated* from ilvl and qlvl as follows

If (ilvl>99) then {ilvl=99}
if (qlvl>ilvl) then {ilvl=qlvl} ;** see note below
if (magic_lvl>0) then {alvl=ilvl+magic_lvl}
if (ilvl<(99-qlvl/2))
then {alvl=ilvl-qlvl/2}
else {alvl=2*ilvl-99}
If (alvl>99) then {alvl=99}

*all calculations use integers so there are no fractions at any step.
** this new ilvl value is only used for the duration of this calculation. The ilvl value that is stored in the items data file will remain unchanged.
