Frozen Depths: cool! :-)
« on: December 18, 2009, 10:53:31 PM »
Nice game!

I managed to arrive at dungeon level 13 with a dwarf warrior with all bonus points in vitality (and so lots of hp).

Is there a wiki somewhere? I would like to know what all the stuff prefixes/suffixes do (is a stanching bronze helm better than a normal bronze helm?).

Do you know any tricks/strategy?

How much stuff have to be sacrified to be helped by the goddess?

Now my record is dungeon level 27, 50 points, with a level 9 dwarven warrior.

Sometime there are unique messages when entering a level.. by now I found the "quiet level" and the "dull level".

Looks like it's more convenient to keep potions and wands to sell for deeper merchants; every ten levels the base price (50$) multiplies.

It is a really nice game.

It is on my todo list once it has tiles/dev resumes from last hiatus as, IIRC, lots of improvements and such were on his todo list.  Last I recall he kinda broke his hand(s) awhile back though...

I played this a while ago.  It was pretty good.  A lot like the original rogue, but it's much more forgiving in just about every way.  I think I played a human of the close range fighter class?  And I killed the 3rd or 4th demon boss before dying?  It's hard to remember because of how long ago it was, but I do remember that it left an overall positive impression on me.

4-5 boss? Congratulations, my best was killing the second demon.

Another thing I don't understand is what stuff should be sacrified to increas piety.. I have the feeling that the more an item is worth, the more it increases it.
I still haven't managed to have a response to the prayer; how much stuff ($ worth) should I sacrifice?

I think your best bet is to go with some trial and error for sacrificing items.  I thought that the goddess liked items related to warmth and valuables like gold and such, but like I said, it was a while ago.  Maybe I'll give it another shot sometime.

Running Frozen Depths on an iMac
« Reply #7 on: January 16, 2010, 08:31:46 PM »
I am trying to run Frozen Depths on a iMac, but I receive this error:
Your terminal is too small. Please resize it to 80x25 or larger.         
                You'll have to restart the game after that.                     
             Windows users should use the shortcut to do this.


Furthermore, on the download page (http://koti.mbnet.fi/frozend/download.php) Frozen Depths developer says:"Note to Mac players: You have to configure your terminal to support at least 16 colors to make the game work properly, but don't ask me how as I'm not a Mac user."

What do I have to do? and how?

Look for settings in whatever terminal you are using, where you can define number of rows and colomns (or how it's spelled :) The standard for terminal-play is usually 80x25. If you can't find that option anywhere, consider getting a different terminal! (Or get off that filthy Macintosh! *Shivers* MbWahAHaha!) ;)

Or if you're playing in a windowed terminal, it should be as easy as clicking+dragging to resize the window. Under Linux, at least, terminals tend to be 80x24 chars large, so I've had the same "problem" (with ADOM, actually). Just making the window a tick bigger did the trick.

Yeah. Fun game indeed.
I won it once.
Some of my suggestions to author are even made it into the game :)
The way back is also rather fun.

I think your best option for spoilers here is to make the text really small.
