Re: Mines of Elderlore 1.0 beta 3 with graphics

Thanks everyone for the help!

Sadly I still have problems :S

First I tried the "magic" method of downloading cvs and doing what instructed, but it didn't do anything good.

Then, trying to install the package you told me, I get an error because it depends on python <<2.5 and I have 2.5.1. What the hell?

This is just plain silly.

Is there any way of manually compiling a package? I should probably download python cvs and install it manually. Any help with that, please?

Welcome to the magic of dependencies !  ::) A solution would be to change some logical link, but I don't have enough knowledge to tell you what to do.

Perhaps another solution is to install python 2.4 to satisfy those package requirments ?

I've release beta 4 of Mines of Elderlore. Final version is close, here is the changelog so far:
- [Bug] It is now really possible to hit monsters with axes and warhammers while
in fuzzy mode.
- [Bug] In pygame mode, you can use '1' to '4' keys from the keypad to change
your equipped weapon.
- [Bug] No more crashing to desktop when hitting a wrong key under moe-pygame.
- [Feature] In pygame mode, a menu is displayed to play multiple games without
quitting each time.
- [Feature] In pygame mode, if 'random' dungeon selected in 'moe.ini', the same
random dungeon will be proposed from game to game.
- [Feature] On floor level 'n', monsters can only progress to level 'n + n-1'.

Some more screenshots:

You can get the windows binary at:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/elderlore/moe_windows.1.0beta4.zip

And the source release at:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/elderlore/moe_source.1.0b4.zip

After unzipping it, you can launch the game with:
- moe-pygame.exe (graphical version) or moe-curses (ascii version) under Windows
- python moe-pygame.py (graphical version) or python moe-curses.py (ascii version) under a real Operating System  ;)

There is a readme.txt file pretty complete about the game in the folder. Have fun!

I have played b4 for some time some days ago I went outside of my city, and I can say the game is really great!

I still can't make the graphical version work, but at least I can play the game!

I have a question, though: sometimes, when I charge with the sword, I don't do full charge damage because I'm hit the turn before I move. Is this intentional? I mean, I think the player has little to no control over how to place yourself so you attack first, or is there some arcane way of doing it?

Thanks as always!

Hi Adral,

Glad to know that you enjoy MoE :). For the charge to be effective, you need to hit the monster in the same direction that you were charging. A good way (but not very convenient...) to know if you are actually charging is to check your inventory ('i' key); if charging, your damage points will be increased.

A new version of Pygame has been released, have you tried it ? Under Ubuntu, you need to:
* download source files and unzip them: http://pygame.org/download.shtml
* install it: python setup.py install
That version should include the patch to the problem you had with 64bit Ubuntu.
