I have no objection, but I think it would take a lot of effort to do so.

Don't forget that Cthangband is written in C# rather than C, so it can't be simply dropped in as an alternate to other...

[Announce] Cthangband 6.9 Release

In case it weren't already obvious from the title, I've released a new version of Cthangband. There's no real change in gameplay in this version, it's mostly about improving the front-end.

I don't think I can take advantage of the auto-build, since Cthangband runs on the .NET Framework and the auto-build tools only work on .NET Core.

I've made a 6.8 release and attached the...

I'm not sure. I need to do a bit of research to see how they work, first.

[Announce] Cthangband 6.8 Release (also Cthangband is now on GitHub)

As you've probably guessed from the spoiler-filled title, I've released Cthangband 6.8.

It's only a tiny change from 6.7, mostly it was just to fix the bug with level feelings not working...

I don't think so. It's a C# program using WPF running on the .NET Framework 4.5.2.

It might be possible to run that under Linux using something like Wine, but since I've never used Linux in my...

So, these changes didn't make it into 6.5 (or 6.6 for that matter), but I've not forgotten about them.

I've added them to the upcoming 6.7, and it's been quite a balancing act.

.NET Framework vs .NET

As most of you probably know, a year or two ago (*checks calendar* Oh my God it was 2018. That was four years ago!) I ported Cthangband over from C to C#.

At the time I used the .NET Framework...

I also use fullscreen on 1920x1080, and I prefer to use Consolas Bold as the font because I think it looks best (especially on main game display). That's why I chose to use it as the default font.
