David Gervais Monster Set

It's well known that the 32x32 David Gervais tiles don't quite fit the Angband monster list. While there's a lot of overlap, there are many monsters that don't have matching tiles and there are a lot...

True. That's basically due to there being a limited colour palette and not enough different shades of yellow to allow them to be distinguished from each other.

I'm aware of that issue.

Cthangband's running used to do that too, but somewhere in the refactoring and port from C to C# it got lost.

[Announce] Cthangband 6.3 Released

This is only a minor update - fixing a couple of bugs and tweaking the user-interface. Although since the user-interface is what you see when you play, it looks like qute a major change.

I've encountered an unexpected problem with shift-to-run.

Basically, it's a limitation of the way the WPF Framework handles keyboard input.

It's not difficult - I know exactly what needs doing to decouple the dungeon size from the screen size. It's just that it's a lot more effort than I think it's worth to do so, because it gives...

Surely the problem with that is that - as the developer - you don't know how big the screen is going to be, so you can't lay it out properly.

I can't reproduce any problem with buying things. It gives you the choice of how many to buy, from one to the whole stack, and that choice defaults to only buying one unless you change it.

The reason it's Windows only is because it's written in C# and uses the WPF Framework for display. The WPF Framework, as far as I know, is not available on any other .NET implementation (e.g. Mono).
