New Player With Strange Graphical Glitch
Hi all,

I have no Angband experience so this may be a strange/stupid question but here goes:

When I play in ASCII mode in 4.0, sometimes the @ symbol will disappear when I am walking through the dungeon. My light source seems to disappear at these times as well and it is like a black square is marching across the screen - it seems to take the wall # symbols along with it. This is annoying because I cannot tell where I am. Mobs who enter my black square of invisible-ness seem to disappear as well.

Is this supposed to happen? I had a couple of torches in my inventory... Meanwhile, the graphical tile sets worked just fine.

Also, I saw in screen shots of older versions that the walls of the dungeon were made of gray/white blocks. I kind of liked that look - any way to get that back?

I am in Windows 8.1 if that makes any difference and use an nVidia GTX 660 for graphics.

When wooden torches run out of turns they disappear. This leaves you with no light source and no way to see anything. The fact that you can't see the @ either sounds like a bug though. Do you get the same behavior if you take of your light?

I am not out of torchlight just yet - I am on the first floor of the dungeon!

I played around with the options some more and enabled the fancy graphic option and that seems to have solved the problem. Of course, now everything is REALLY tiny.

Edit - Found the font settings. That helped a lot!

Now, about the walls... any way to get the white/grey blocks?

Edit - Found the = menu. Sorry to be a n00b.

Awesome game!!
