It's not about gfx yes, it's about not annoying the player. The player is there to play & have fun, not learn obscure UIs

A good UI IMO should be operable entirely with keyboard, entirely with mouse or a combo of both.

Some actions might be easier with some control, but the point is that in 2012 people expect a game to react to both. When I try a new RPG I instinctively look for the inventory, levleup, ... keys, while an other player might see the icons and click them. In the end my way may be faster, but if there was no icons to click, a good percentage of players would be lost without them even trying the keyboard commands.

Loosing players is never good.

As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta37 ! See
Don't forget to help ToME by with donations ( ) !

This is a bugfix release to fix some important b36 bugs and it also is a celebration for winning the roguelike of the year poll!
