Way to show more on screen?
 
Is there a way to show more of the dungeon on the screen? I'm guessing that the view area is a fixed height and width, but with monitors getting bigger, I'd like to be able to view more of the dungeon in one window than currently allowed.

I should have looked before asking, because I did find Map view and Overhead view for some of the sub-windows. This is sort of what I'm looking for, though in those views, I don't get to see some of the info on the main screen (depth, resistances, etc.)

Have you tried a) decreasing font size b) making the window bigger?

I play with the main dungeon view using up the entire display (I have a second display, where I shove other windows). It works just fine.

Damn ... maybe I have to buy a 2nd monitor for my next new computer. =P

D*mn, now I need even bigger monitor. I just found out that I can fit the entire dungeon into screen with 9x15 font, but I like to play with 10x20 font (9x15 is ugly, 8x16 looks better, but is a bit too small).

hmmmm...maybe I can use my TV for angband....

I've got a 72" HDTV. I've been thinking a lot about if I could play full dungeon on screen with 32x32 tiles. Problem is I need a video card with a digital video out port, which I don't have right now.

you can afford a 72" TV, but not a new video card? ;)
