Hi Berserker,

There's Heroic Adventure which is open source and written in VB.NET

My three roguelikes are written in VB6 and are all open source:

- War of Wizards - A simple multiplayer seven-day roguelike. (finished)
- Saffron - My stealth puzzle roguelike. Being actively developed and getting close to a 1.0 release :)
- Paprika - My generic roguelike. Not finished and I don't work on it anymore. It's got a lot of useful stuff in though, like pathfinding/los/random-number-generator and so on.

I'll be making an open source VB6 roguelike in the 7DRL challenge, which starts tomorrow!!

There's also a couple more VB roguelikes without code: Mines of Morgoth and Lords of Darkhall.

Funny you should reply as I wrote you an e-mail regarding where I could get the source code for war of wizards earlier.  I e-mailed iceyicey@gmail.com.

Thank you!

That's alright Berserker - Glad I could help!

If you have any questions, you're very welcome to ask. I'm starting my 7DRL later today, so I wont have much time available over the next week, but after that I'll be able to answer any longer questions.

WoW source code is included with the application, in the code.zip file. Remember that it was hurriedly written in a week ::)

Thank you, I am sure I will have a ton of questions!  Your coding is going to be 10x sharper than mine, btw, so don't sweat it.

I've written all my 7DRLs in C#... it's not quite VB, but since it's also a .NET language, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
