This is very interesting; I thought that most roguelike players would prefer window mode, because of being able to access other applications easier.

Well, will re-implement in 1.6.2, but can't promise for MacOS.

It somewhat depends on style I think.  For example, see the last JADE thread on here, and various entries in Biskup's blog as he tackled it, where the lack of a clean full-screen option was lamented alongside then laggy performance as the ADOM people really went for the immersion on it.

Heh, even for the people constantly referring to Wikis and whatnot when playing---I'd bet some of them are running it dual monitor.   :D

Safest bet is generally to open up the game to a main title screen after perhaps a very short intro, to where they can set and save all manner of preferred settings ingame and before actually starting with creation and moving around and such.  Windowed versus Full Screen can also make a difference for people intending to record the game depending on their set-up as opposed to just personally playing.

Also, actually from me:  What is the difference between the difficulty levels?  A little summary next to each level would be educational and perhaps spur some ideas outright as there's a few different ways it can be gone about----like the worst way being ToME 4's Insane mode.  If donations pick up for the project it might be nicest of all to have that screen more visual with actual large medals alongside their tooltips and whatnot as opposed to just the short listing.   8)

I lack behind with finishing the game guide -- there everything would be explained ;) I just copy the passage:

"Bronze is easy, silver standard, and gold hard. In bronze setting, the number of monsters is reduced, while the number of items is increased. Also, the respawn rate of monsters is reduced, and the distance monsters follow you is shorter. In gold setting, it's the other way around: more monsters, less items, and monsters follow you over a longer distance."

That sounds fairly sensible then, far moreso than the sadly common "take 20% more damage/deal 20% less"  way.   :)

Time well spent from the sound of it, so just take it as it does and keep those various threads topped off and in view along with the process.   8

The LambdaRogue 1.6.1 manual is available now:

http://lambdarogue.net/guide.html

This manual is basically a starting help for new players, but even if you've played LambdaRogue before, it might be helpful to read through it once. If you find errors or mistakes (also regarding language), please report.

Nice stuff.   For best effect, read while this clip loops minimized or on another tab or something----don't know why, but it just seems to fit LambdaRogue well somehow...    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8VZCyoI8fQ
