Roguelike Celebration 2019
 
Is anyone here attending? Day one was great, lots of cool people and cool talks. They've set up a Twitch stream and Twitter account so you can participate and watch talks remotely. Angband 4.2.0 was running on one of the computers in the games corner, though there was some kind of movement bug where pressing a direction made you run instead of moving one step at a time.

This bug is an angband.live bug. I have the same problem playing angband.live on my laptop. I have to change the keymap for the arrow keys to be ";#" (where # is what the movement direction would be on a keypad, i.e., 2,4,6,8). I then keymap a function <Fn> and arrow for running ".#"

Aha, good to know it's a known issue at least. We'll see if it's set up tomorrow; if so I'll try to rig up that fix. Thanks!

If its the same as angband.live turning on numlock works

This is ultimately my fault but yes, numlock, and if the keyboards at RLcel lack numpads be sure to complain. You can help by making sure that numlock is left on at that computer.

Ingwe's fix will work too, but breaks shiftrunning.

It's a moot point; Angband wasn't on any of the computers on day two. Still, an awesome conference, highly recommended to anyone who can make it out to San Francisco. The talk on wave function collapse as a method for generating maps ought to be particularly of interest to devs here, since it sounds like a really simple technique that can be applied in a wide range of ways. Look for videos and transcripts to show up in the next few days!

One of these years I'm going to make it to this. I'll probably only understand 10% of what people are talking about but it sounds awesome.

The videos are available on Twitch right now, and will probably be on YouTube soon, so at the very least you can watch those and get a sense of how interesting they are. Some recommendations (either because the topic was inherently interesting to me, or because I thought the presentation was well done):
- Alexei Pepers (mapping roguelike devs to various D&D classes)
- Max Kreminski (extracting narratives out of giant piles of random events)
- Robin Sloan (getting computers to generate high-fantasy text)
- Thomas Biskup (on the dangers of relying on a bunch of veteran roguelike players' feedback when you want to appeal to general audiences)
- Brian Bucklew (an interesting technique for doing many different styles of map generation with a single program)
- Jim Shepard (making AIs that have more nuanced relationships with the PC beyond a basic linear reputation system)

There was also a trivia show at the end of day 2, which I personally quite enjoyed.

looking forward to celebrating my favourite game genre!

That wave function collapse map generation is incredible. Check out the examples and videos:
