I've only won a couple rl's myself and those were spambands (not saying anything about them just that they are spammy). The reason that i play roguelikes is because they are difficult.

on a side note i am learning c++ for unrelated reasons and the roguelike source codes that i have looked at are WAY over my head so now i MUST make one even though im talking about distant future. (going to the jungle soon for aboot a month no computers  :'()

Just wondering if you have looked at sewerjacks code, and if so what did you think? I know I dont comment my code though.

Have fun in the jungle. I am sure you will get a lot of inpiration from it.

Not yet as i have been busy with a million things but i plan on it for sure. Do you know of any roguelikes with easy to understand clearly commented code?

Ha, I am sure it does not exist.  No c++ ones anyway, maybe JADE? (java).  IVAN is c++ but I doubt there will be comments.  I have never looked at another rls code.

How can we waste precious code KBs with such a useless thing as comments! :P

Now a coffee break rogue is an interesting idea for a project to tackle.

I don't think mine qualifys because it takes 2-3 hours to complete.

But maybe designing a rougelike with a 30 minute cap could be interesting. It could even be called "Escape the dungeon in 30 minutes, even though this is a turn based game" - It could be like speed chess.

Spelunky gets my vote today, although not a roguelike at all, it is heavily inspired by one and plays like a real-time platform roguelike, with complex key-sets and all. 
I really love the initial menu system to.

Just wanted to say, that my 7DRL chickhack is pretty short so you may like to try it.  I deliberately made it short enough that, I would not have to write any save/load game code! ;)

Is there any chance of chickhack getting numeric keypad support or anything like that?  The k h u whatever setup is really unintuitive for me.

Speaking of which, that does seem pretty common, what type of computer or keyboard is that set for?

That layout called vi keys and is quite common among roguelikes.

My Escape From Lab 42 plays in 30 minutes or less. More of a lunch break game I guess. :)

There is no numberpad on a C64 keyboard, silly billy! ;)  But I will support it in "proper" roguelikes I make.

I see.  It makes a little bit more sense when I see it laid out that way.

Are there many people who prefer vi keys over the numeric keypad?

I'm actually working on a project of my own, and although it will not be ready for some time, if people prefer that over the numeric keypad I could add support for it.
