Thanks, any particular font family you would recommend? I have no artistic taste lol so I'll gladly try out recommendations.

Re: Snapshot Roguelike alpha

Very nice! Really well done, plays very nicely. Could you move the F1 Help screen to the right though? Otherwise it overlaps with the inventory, which is annyoing at the beginning. Thanks, and good point. The current F1 help screen is a dirty kludge to be perfectly honest, just found I had added in...

Re: Snapshot Roguelike alpha

1. by saying you need artwork that is just compatible, do you mean that changing the code to use new artwork(say larger tile images) would infact be really easy? 2. Also would you say anything about custom user texture support in future. 3. Do you see multiplayer support in future 4. Do you see som...

Re: Best practices for organizing inheritance with MiddleCla

I'll try an example, taken from my current project which has both good and bad examples :) Much work remaining to be done. However, one good example in it is the way the container related components work together to reduce the overall number of specialized classes. I have a need for at least three t...

Snapshot Roguelike alpha

Pretty early alpha (0.0.3) but playable. F1 for ingame help (not the best looking but functional), Esc to exit. Rotational view, character always facing towards the top of the screen, view centered just above the hud for a simple field of awareness visual display. Up next will be modern day and some...

Re: Best practices for organizing inheritance with MiddleCla

It's all about the public interface of your classes/objects. Too many methods and/or externally accessed instance vars and it is real easy to get confused about which does what and who does what to whom. Too few and you end up with 85000 classes, which is yet another kind of confusion. With lua ther...

Re: What's everyone working on? (tigsource inspired)

Porting my game project from Python/libtcod to Lua/LÖVE. It is yet another roguelike :awesome: but heavily influenced by ascii sector and DoomRL along with tabletop RPG's from years gone by (Traveller/2300AD). Current name is Dark Stars Rogue L(ike/ua/ove), and not much to show yet but a spash scree...
