Very nice, getting things like controls and options menus moreso settled out now should free you up for plenty more gameplay oriented stuff to come---month by month it remains a tantalizing prospect to me reckoning the state this will be in come the end of December release.   8)

I was very lazy this time and spent whole weeks doing next to nothing. Especially in Fame. However, the version 0.8.9 has been finally done.

The biggest change is the new GUI skin. Some time ago I promised not to make many more GUI-related changes, but I just couldn't resist the temptation to remove that old, ugly stuff, particularly because my wife hated it. I hope you will like the new looks.

There are also some other improvements that should make gameplay more interesting. Monsters are now able to pick up items and use healing potions. Some can even steal items from the player. Some monsters (namely bats) can now fly over the water, while others can jump into it when burning.

It will be now more difficult for the hero to raise main attributes (strength, dexterity and so on). Additionally, the carried equipment, as well as being bloated, now affects hero's speed.

Quick overview:

    new GUI
    AI improvements
    minor modifications of the hero's features

Detailed change log:

    completely new GUI skin
    monsters can pick up items and sometimes use them
    new monster features: equipment stealing, damaging attacker
    requirements for gaining attribute levels are much higher now
    bats are able to fly over the water
    if the hero or a monster jumps into the water, it can extinguish the fire
    hero slows down when overloaded or bloated
    hero's speed displayed on the main interface instead of wealth, which is now available in the Inventory
    monsters that cannot swim will now drown
    combo boxes will hide the dropdown list when clicked outside
    [bugfix] the Inventory window closes when a spell is about to be cast from a scroll
    [bugfix] dungeon generation no longer produces faulty locations with only 1 room
    [bugfix] the editor no longer crashes if editor.ini does not exist

Saved games from 0.8.4 up to 0.8.8 are still compatible with 0.8.9.

Have fun!

It was an easy decision... Too many people just refuse to play anything that does not display ASCII, so a character mode has been finally introduced in Fame. I'm saying "finally", because - although never officially announced - I've been playing with that idea for several years. I have played ADOM (back in 1998 it did not have an ASCII mode) much more that any tile-based roguelike game... Technically, it was not very difficult to implement, at least the main game screen. Any other game window (and Fame has dozens of them) would need to use completely different user interface for the ASCII mode, so that for now it should actually be called "mixed mode" :-). And that's strange, but this new mode is not just an alternative output type. It completely diverts my way of thinking about the game and its development. I can't wait for the next release, which, of course, will be even better!

Nice!  Always of note for a big, new system to show up in the fray---still yet more to come on the level of this Religion one, or was this pretty well the last giant still stalking the wilds with just further content/polish remaining?

I always try to implement big features gradually, rather than rolling out everything at once only to discover later that it is messed up beyond all repair. It is easier to tune and polish a small system, or apply suggestions from players.

0.9.5

Quote
I have spent the last 2 months mainly on fixing bugs. Many "big ones", haunting the game for months (or even years) have been finally hunted down. The biggest success was fixing some "impossible" Linux bugs. Ironically, the Linux version is not ready yet for another reason.

Among new features the most important one is the auto-aiming feature. By pressing J you either cast the last offensive spell used or shoot your current ranged weapon (if any). The target is also selected automatically and it is usually the closest enemy or (if there are several enemies at equal distance) the most wounded one. The whole system is probably not perfect yet, but it already works pretty well, eliminating the constant need for aiming manually. Now you do the manual aiming only when you feel that the auto-aim would be inappropriate for some reason, which is very, very rare. I'm really satisfied with this one.

I've spent some time trying to provide ASCII mode counterparts for various parts of the UI, but so far only the basic functionality of the Inventory window works well in the ASCII mode, so I have disabled it in the release version. It will be (hopefully) available in the next release, when the full functionality of the window is implemented. As of other dialog windows, I will strive to implement them incrementally in the future releases. It's a hard task, comparable only with implementing a new window from the scratch. It's probably much easier to provide a graphical version for an ASCII-mode-only game...

Oh, enough of this grumbling. As long as I have a computer with a working C++ compiler, there's no need to worry about this kind of stuff ;-).

Saved games from 0.8.4 up to 0.9.4 are still compatible with 0.9.5.

Quick summary:

    auto-aiming
    important bugfixes

Detailed change log:

    auto-aiming
    two-handed staves can now be used to block attacks
    main purpose description in item details (Inventory)
    it is now possible to give orders to multiple companions simultaneously
    with the Two Weapon Fighting skill, when a target of the first attack is killed, another hostile monster is attacked automatically
    immersion mode now available on Linux
    removing an item from the ground (in Inventory) no longer causes the scroll bar to reset to the position zero
    monsters ignore unique (or otherwise important) items instead of picking them up at will
    repair cost for cheap items is no longer zero
    mouse middle button used for changing location instead of the wheel
    ASCII mode: changed characters used for some monster types and items
    [bugfix] spellcasting no longer leads to undefined behavior (including crashes)
    [bugfix] switching from ASCII mode back to tiles mode no longer causes weird effects
    [bugfix] the game no longer crashes at exit (Linux)
    [bugfix] close button now works on Linux
    [bugfix] game no longer crashes when a friendly creature follows the Hero to another location
    [bugfix] monsters that follows the Hero to another location no longer immediately disappear if the location has not been visited for a long time
    [bugfix] NPCs no longer "forget" their default text after saving game
    [bugfix] fixed a rare bug that occurs in the Random Dungeon when the player using a stairway is informed that he cannot enter the location, but is transferred to the new location anyway - saving game at that point would corrupt the save file
    [bugfix] selecting the hero when attempting to 't'alk no longer crashes the game
    [bugfix] certain monsters in randomly generated locations no longer "forget" to use ranged attacks
    [bugfix] sacrificing items on an altar now works correctly
    [bugfix] certain items are no longer permanently damaged
    [bugfix] switching to immersion mode by pressing F11 is now correctly saved in game configuration
    [bugfix] corrected message order when a monster opens a trapped door
    [bugfix] missing +/- in resistances statistics
    [bugfix] corrected actions listed as available for special objects from different distances
    [bugfix] item details for shields no longer has doubled text "Chance to Block"
    [bugfix] incorrect text in statistics when the hero dies at certain time

Have a good time sacrificing poor goblins!

v0.9.6

Quote
In this version I wanted to implement full functionality of the Inventory window (the most complex window in the game!) in ASCII mode. However, I decided to release a bit earlier because of some bugfixes that should become available to you as soon as possible :-).

Important changes are coming. Preparing the ground, I have rewritten the align system from scratch. Now it is possible for the hero to become "evil" and even killing monsters (most of them) should not shift the character towards "good". This has little meaning as for now, but will become critical in one of the future versions.

Saved games from 0.8.4 up to 0.9.5 are still compatible with 0.9.6.

Quick summary:

    new align system
    more functionality in ASCII inventory
    important bugfixes

Detailed change log:

    reworked align changes
    more functionality in the Inventory (ASCII mode); ASCII version of the window is optional
    plants grow and wither much slower
    additional message when a plant grows or dies under hero's feet
    [bugfix] the game no longer crashes at startup if the keyboard configuration file is empty or does not exist
