    Gaining money without taking it

    I've noticed strange thing I have never known about before.
    During simple Baal run I was standing with my char in the room and doing nothing. I had open inventory and was watching how I was getting money though I was not taking any from the ground. (I was just standing, not touching anything and was getting money in inventory).
    I wore some EG items, but I thought they works for monster drops.

    Can you explain me this?

    If a party member picks some up it's shared. I was confused about it aswell a while ago

    I get it. Is that some new feature or I was just blind? Let's look to patch information:

    1.09 patch:
    "- Gold sharing among party members has been removed."

    Now I don't get it

    Whaaat? I'm 100% sure it happens, since it was the last patch when I was wondering about it.

    The wiki says this though:

    Gold is not shared between players who are not in a friendly party, (this feature can not be disallowed) and it's not shared to players in the party who are not in the same area. In this usage, area = level, and the level is all that matters, not proximity. Two characters half a screen away from each other, but in different levels, will not share gold (or experience gain), while two characters ten screens apart, but in the same level, will.

    Thank you
    The only little problem is that I can't find it in patch information (patch.txt file in game folder).

    it does share im sure, i remember used to rush to grab a couple thousand gold then i realised it was only giving me a portion, the game seems to split the dough equally between the party who is in the surrounding area, so in poublic levelling games dont bother picking up gold if some other fool is
