Watch out, Jekyll Krice is back !

Well he did go commercial and changed GenRogue plans. But he's only Polish. It's like swedes, you can't demand that much from swedes, because they are happy and easy people who like meatballs and who put lots of sugar in their bread. I mean we Finns put metal in out bread and chew that in some dark desolate corner, watching out for wolves that may steal our bread.

Morning people,

Randomly searching the internet, I found this... I think it is somewhat related

I am a bit unconviced by Jade. Everyone is doing monster inventories etc now. I dont see the big deal, but then I never liked ADOM much anyway. It didnt grab me and convince me to keep playing time and time again. After a couple of failed plays it was like.. OK. done. next game to check out.

Will Jade blow everything away? I guess its a wait and see, but I probably wont be downloading and playing it.

Oh geez...

"In the meantime I work on the JADE code to currently implement the first fully functional monsters (including equipment, etc.)."

Wasn't monsters the VERY FIRST THING he implemented in Qhack? Something tells me we'll be waiting a while for JADE...

are you waiting for qhack to be released or something? that seems odd.

Oh no, I'm just saying that since monsters were one of the first things TB did in QHack, it logically follows that it would be one of the first features to be added to JADE.  And if he's been working on JADE for nearly ten years (first design post was in '98, I kid you not) and is only JUST starting monsters, it means we'll probably waiting a while for a playable version of JADE.

I don't see the logic. Maybe he spent really long time just hacking the world generator and then began to add monsters. I now believe that game object coding is the hardest part of roguelike programming and when you add game objects everything will become much more complex and difficult in development point of view. So it's probably easier to implement game world first and then carefully add game objects.

Game objects = items, monsters, traps, fountains, etc.

Now there is adom/jade forum. I would sign up, but I'm a hater of ADOM so I would probably be kicked out sooner or later..
