Warrior, dlvl5 (2-9): Wrath of God.

I cant map my rest keys, I use and shift-thereof on my german keyboard but the game seems to see them all as the same.

It is really hard to play without my shortcuts.

I think the band-aid solution is going to be implementing macros (since they'll behave more like macros than keymaps) on the client side. I'll look into different terminal emulators because this one has a few issues, but I might end up having to more or less write my own - at which point I may as well be writing an angband-specific frontend in javascript (which I plan on eventually doing).

I'll try and have in-browser macros done by the 11th.

This is a great thing youre doing, just to be clear. Constant error messages on my part may sound like I am only complaining, so I had to mention this.

Borg is wielding Barukkheled now ? I think that was the artifact broad axe.

Well I would like it to be playable - it's only useful if people use it, and if it's too tedious/annoying, they won't. So feedback is helpful, but so is encouragement.

I don't think it can get to the point where it's as convenient to play as a real local installation of angband, but I do hope to reduce the negatives to the point where they don't outweigh the positives. When I played DCSS a lot I started using the offline client, and found the browser interface horrible but I eventually switched because of the competitive/social element of online play, and I want to do the same for Angband.

Yeah. The first thing to do to achieve that is to get the chat going (:

Balli Stonehand now, I assume. Was that the one with +3 con ? I think one axe had ESP, too, was it Hurin ?

He has 800 hp, +10 speed, res poison, pconf pblind but is bumbling about on lvl ~30. What is he missing to go deeper ? Permanent source of ESP ?

Tried watching the borg again today. The screen is scrolling improperly every time the character moves off the current map vertically. There's junk covering essentially the entire screen. Problem is browser-independent.
