Personally, I find the mouse interface kinda cumbersome, plus it does not seem possible to do everything with just the mouse.

Can you be more specific please?

Macintosh and Atari ST Rogue don't have any keyboard commands, and they were made by the original authors. As soon as they moved out of graphically and input constrained environment they decided to replace ASCII characters with graphics and keyboard input with mouse controls. Surely they thought to be making a superior version, and I agree, so I find it baffling why would anyone want to use a keyboard still.

Sorry about the late reply.

I just find the movement with the mouse interface a bit cumbersome and awkward to use in general. Especially since the screen does not seem to fit my monitor properly in fullscreen. It would seem that the buttons to view the inventory, etc, or off screen on the right side of my screen and I cannot see them. It seems to be about 6 to 8 cells too wide for my monitor.

Technically I can see those missing cells in windowed mode, but I don't like playing anything in window mode really. I can't even see a button to view my entire inventory.

Don't get me wrong, I do like your port. Just not a fan of the interface.

I appreciate your feedback. I love the interface, and ultimately it is me I'm making this for, but I do very much hope other people would like it as well, so it is unfortunate you don't.

I find that really strange. Have you tried "auto-configure" option, most monitors have it I think. What monitor is it(resolution), what OS? Do other console games fit your monitor in fullscreen, original Epyx DOS Rogue for example?

In any case, if you ever going to try it again I highly recommend playing browser version instead: http://52.42.113.72:9999/

It hosts the most recent version, for which I have not yet released standard zip download as I am still testing it and playing in a browser myself. Plus, it keeps hi-scores online, so that makes it more interesting if you wish to compete with other people (mostly just me) and try to beat my record.

New version is online, first post updated with the download link.

Fixed some long lingering bugs in the original v5 code. Added features from Epyx version, namely instead of snakes there are slime monsters that can split, ice monsters roam around and shoot frost bolts, throwing potions on monsters can affect them. And finally now a feature unique to Rogue+: monsters can trigger traps, and some traps can be picked up and set elsewhere.

Play in a browser: http://52.42.113.72:9999/

Sorry again for yet another late reply.

No I don't have any issues running the old epyx dos version of rogue or Donnie Russell's great port.

While it seems that 6-8 cells on the right are getting cut off, it would seem more likely that it is only the very right-most one cell being cut off bwith the menu buttons on the side.
