Good stuff---the more you get squared away earlier on, the less you'll have interfering when you get down to the big stuff down the line towards v1.0 and beyond.

Thanks!

P.S. so far the plans for the next build (scheduled for the ARRP) are:

-Major combat overhaul (already started on that but reverted to the older code for the 0.62 build)
-Mouse controls
-A proper options menu
-And everything else I manage to cram in ;)

Just in time for the ARRP, here's alpha 0.7 of Rogue's Souls: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3725770/roguessouls_0.7.rar

The main features here are the mouse controls, the option menu and of course the combat overhaul.

I tried making the combat a bit more dynamic by making dodge chances, block chances, and ranged accuracy depend on your actions last turn (the same is true for enemies and npcs ofc). For instance, moving gives you a dodge bonus but reduces block chance, shooting multiple times in a row makes it slightly more likely to hit etc. More details in the manual.

Here's the full changelog for those interested:

Code: [Select]
-Added mouse controls
-Added an option menu
-Added paralysis status effect
-Added curse status effect
-Added slow status efffect
-Added status effect traps
-Added new enemies,traps and items
-New enemy AI functions

-Block and dodge chances, ranged hit chance as well as attack stamina costs, now partially depend on your actions last turn
-Reduced number of chests
-Made monsters tougher and more distinct
-Tweaked starting classes
-Made dodging more likely to happen
-Slightly increased stamina regen when waiting
-Made blocking less likely to happen
-Characters can now be knocked back more than 1 square
-Knockback causes hitstun (temp paralysis)
-Daggers, rapiers and most projectiles now lower defender's dodge chance
-Altar menu doesn't exit anymore after leveling up

-Fixed several issues with field of view
-Poison attacks now work correctly
-Hidden and invisible monsters can no longer be targeted in ranged combat
-Fixed a monster pathfinding bug concerning NPC displacement
-Fixed a a bug where monsters drowning in water would produce an error message
-Item tiles now display corectly in drop and ready menus
-Opening manual on title screen no longer starts the game
-Several other fixes

-Soldier now starts out at SL2
-Other tweaks

OK, here's a new bugfix/tweak release, alpha 0.71: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3725770/roguessouls_0.71.rar

Changelog:
Quote
-Low level monsters don't spawn on high dungeon levels anymore
-Changed dungeon generation slightly to keep levels from gettig too big

-Fixed issue where mouse cursor would disappear after aiming with keyboard
-Fixed an issue where mouse menu buttons would continue to be displayed after leaving the menu

-Block and dodge chances are now displayed on HUD
-Made chests harder to open and more likely to be locked
-Slightly improved block chance of shields
-Made levelups slightly cheaper
-Reduced damage of some monsters
-Other minor tweaks and fixes

As expected, the 0.7 combat overhaul brought a ton of balance issues. There'll probably be another minor release to address (hopefully) most of them.

Just released version 0.84. This version adds saves. No changes to content yet. I'm doing this release in 2 parts (this version and the 0.9 content update) because development is slowed due to university-related stuff.

Download link here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/3725770/roguessouls_0.84.rar

Changelog:
Code: [Select]
-Added saving and loading games
-Sped up level generation
-Level chunks can now be "rotated" during levelgen
-Several minor fixes and tweaks

-New items
-New monster abilities
-New dungeon tiles
-New spells
-Added player gender choice

-Removed "Building level" screen
-Changed the way soul loss over time works
-Made NPCs move around more
-NPCs and bosses no longer leave corpses behind when they die
-Hobgoblins now have shields
-Upped weapon stat requirements
-Other tweaks

-Fixed crash bug related to spell slots
-Fixed save bug concerning monsters with spawning abilities
-Fixed save bug concerning monsters with special health regen

Have fun!  ;)

Thanks!

Couldn't reproduce that error, unfortunately. Can you remember exactly what item it was you were trying to equip?
