Added player icon remapping, correct potion-, ring-, and spell-colors.
The new version also uses
Greg Wooledge's random artifacts 0.6.2
as an option in the character generation. The random artifacts option replaces the
standard artifacts with new ones with random abilities and names.
Keldon Jones' monster AI patch
is now included as an option (under "Game-Play Options").
The new AI allows the monsters to cast spells more intelligently
(they try to teleport away when badly wounded, ...). Some monsters like
"cave spiders" and "orcs" will try to lure the
player into a room and surround him. This can be very nasty if you don't
expect this behavior.
Includes Keldon Jones' improved version of the Ben-Borg,
an automatic Angband player. I've modified it to coexist nicely with
the other patches. The Borg will switch off graphics mode
automatically. Create a new character and press Ctrl-Z to enter
the Borg Mode. Press "z" on the Borg Command-prompt
to run the Borg. For more information about the Borg, look at the
Angband Borg Home Page.
Can use Adam Bolt's new Angband graphics as well as the old tiles.
I've also implemented support for transparency and
All changes are optional and can be switched off.
Graphics, sounds, and music options !!!
You can switch the graphics/music/sound options from the
user menu (press ! to get there). The volume of the sound
and the music can be adjusted from 0 (min) to 255 (max).
All changes to the screen-resolution and the selection
between the old and the new graphical tiles will be active
after you restart Angband.
The windows can be activated from the Angband options screen
( press the '=' key to get there) in the Window flags menu.
Just toggle the display you want for "Term-1" and "Term-2".
Added a stone-background to the terminals.
DOS-Angband automatically plays midi-files from the lib/xtra/music
folder in your Angband-directory.
DOS-Angband will play samples from the lib/xtra/sound folder
to the corresponding Angband-event. You can configure the
available samples in the lib/xtra/sound/sound.cfg file.
Support for Adam Bolt's new tiles, with transparency and lighting effects.
You can select between the "old" tiles, the new tiles,
or ASCII mode (disable both graphic modes for ASCII).
The Windows version no longer requires changes to "angband.ini"
