Hi. I just started PosChengband, my first RL. I posted this in your reddit thread:

"Hi I just started Poschengband out of curiosity from your screenshot. Except for the windows, it's been great! How do you keep the location for the windows from game to game? Whenever I start a game, I have to rearrange all the windows again as they all start from the centre of the screen. I have Manjaro i3 and config for Poschengband as "floating enable". Do you tweak config or the game files? Thanks! "

I should add I already changed "floating enable" to default tiled setup for i3 and that didn't work also. Also tried the examples from the Github readme:

"To add additional terminal windows, you need to specify sub-options. You can
configure, from the command line, a strip of terminals on the right hand side
of the screen, or on the bottom of the screen, or both.

For example:
$ ./poschengband -mgcu -uCrusher -- -right 57x26,*"

which did not work also.

Thanks!

Yes, if you do it straight out of the box with i3, you will end up with all windows stacked, or centered, depending on your default i3 config.
What you need to do is to tell i3 what mode to toggle before opening poschengband, and to do it you have add this to your i3 config file:
Code:
#Open specific applications in floating mode
for_window [class="Angband"] floating enable
And here's my launch script for the game
Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [ "$1" == "" ]; then
    echo 'Play which character?'
    ls ~/.angband/PosChengband/save | grep 1000.* | sed 's/1000.//'
else
