Sorry, I'm not too clear on the directions.

if you want e.g. to run the program named "crawl" which is in directory "c:\games\crawl", you should add the following two lines to the config file (.noe):

PATH c:\games\crawl
CMD crawl

Would I create a new config file to do this? Say for Rogue, would I create a new config file named Rogue.noe and put the path and "cmd rogue" in it? Then when it asks me what configuration I want to use, I would input "Rogue"?

Another solution is to put the commands you use to start the game in a .bat file (e.g. mygame.bat) in the NotEye folder and add the line

CMD mygame

Not too familiar with making .bat files. For the bat file, would I simply put:

CMD Rogue

If I was trying to run Rogue for example?

Also curious, I haven't tried it yet, but will this work with the Epyx version of Rogue?

I was also curious about what exactly are the differences between the configuration choices like dos and generic?

Thanks for the help.

I posted the same thread on the lost labyrinth forum on the games site. This is the reply that the admin wrote.

This way we pay for the homepage and the traffic.
Consider using the "Donate" Button.
When enough people donated to the project I will remove this.

It's a shame I think. I can understand the want and need for donations, but forcing traffic to the website is a bit lame. Especially since the site also often has what seems like russian pop ups. At least when I visit it.

It also doesn't specify that donating will disable it for each user who does donate. Only if enough people donate all together to equal some unknown sum, then it will be disabled all together.

I imagine a better way of doing it would be to simply have an in-game ad screen with a link to the site come up before the game fully exits. This wouldn't be quite as annoying.

Sorry for the bump. Is there a way to create a shortcut to automatically launch into a specific game with this front end? Instead of having to load games from the console command line?

Off-topic (Locked) / Anyone play DND, Telengard, Zyll, or MAG?

I know DND and Telengard are basically the same game by the same author and not fully roguelike games, but I think they have some similarities to roguelikes and are still quite fun.

Zyll is almost a combination of a roguelike with interactive fiction, though not as deep or complex as either genres. Still quite fun and innovative for its time.

MAG or Mike's Adventure Game is one of my personal favorite roguelikes when I want to get a quicker and simpler game in. It doesn't seem to get much fanfare though. I like it because it is still quite similar to the original Rogue which is still my favorite.

Anyone else enjoy/remember any of these games?

I found a newer version of MAG (Mike's Adventure Game) for windows, but when I go to full screen, the game scrunches up to to about the top 1/4 of the screen instead of taking up the whole screen. This happen to anyone else?

Doesn't seem to be any support for it anymore.

Also wondering if anyone else still plays and enjoys this one?

Well, I got hold of the author. Here's the email:

Nice short sweet answer. lol. Hopefully enough other people bring it up and it may get removed. It's not really a big deal, but just really annoying. If someone likes the game enough, they will go to the site and check for updates on their own.

It is very annoying. I tried looking in the ini and config setting, but no luck. Think I will try to contact the creator. Unfortunately, even if they do decide to remove it, I'd still have to wait for the new version.

This is the game in case anyone wanted to try it despite the little annoying website launch upon exiting.

You should really try out Z's cons2tcod:

I did try it. And a couple of misc programs on the internet that supposedly make any program full screen, but none of them worked.

Classic Roguelikes / Re: My first roguelike
« on: January 12, 2011, 04:29:35 AM »
I can't remember exactly which one was my first. It was either Rogue or NetHack. I remember discovering those two and Angband around the same time. (ZZT too). I mostly played Rogue and Angband for quite some time. Then I shifted to mostly NetHack.

Now days it's mostly Rogue and DoomRL. I plan on giving Frozen Depths and Dungeon Crawl a go sometime soon. Also interested in Quickband, Tinyband, and Hellband.

I also got flak from friends when they saw me playing or I tried explaining roguelikes to them. What's funny, is the guys that give me the most flak these days are the ones who spend all day on their computers playing games and I have much more of a life so roguelikes are a perfect fit for playing game with depth in short spurts when you can fit the time in.

Yeah, it's a windows port. I use windows xp. Unfortunately, Donnie Russel doesn't support or work on it anymore. Not even on his website. He only works on TileRogue and his GBA ports of it still as far as I know.

Quote   Maybe TileRogue or that Flash port he did of classic Rogue would work?  All I could think of.

Thanks, but I'm not a big fan of tile graphics in roguelikes or flash games. ClassicRogue is my favorite port of Rogue. The little touches like sound just help make it that much better for me.

Off-topic (Locked) / ClassicRogue full screen or maximize to fit screen?
« on: January 11, 2011, 08:54:08 AM »
Every time I start ClassicRogue it opens in a very small window. The maximize button is grayed out too. Is there any way to make it run full screen or in a maximized window? Actually have this issue with a couple other programs like Fast Crawl too.. Anyone have any suggestions or know of any programs that force program windows to open maximized or fullscreen?

Sorry. I should have looked at the rad me file closer. Turns out there was a command line to make it full screen. Doh!

DoomRL has also randomize name option but it just chooses from preselected names so I fixed that down to my nickname in configuration file.

Somehow I never realized that DoomRL had a random name generator.

I've been playing Lost Labyrinth a bit lately for it's short and sweet quick gameplay, but I noticed every time I exit out of the game, it opens my web browser and goes to the Lost Labyrinth website. Is there any way to disable this?

Indeed, you are correct that Oubliette inspired Wizardry/Mordor(Demise).

Did it inspire Mordor directly? Didn't know that. The similarities between Oubliette and Wizardry are clear as day. Mordor, not so much.

I remember playing Mordor quite some time ago. Really fun game.
