How to set visuals permanently?

I've made changes to some of the visuals under Feature Knowledge ('~' menu). Then I proceeded to dump the feature attr/chars (option 'v on the '=' menu).

How can I have Angband use these new preferences when loading up? The dump was saved as feature.prf. I don't want to name it after my character (neither I could since there exists already a file with that name) or after race since I intend it to be in effect for all games.

I have doubts that this is the official way, but it might work. I think that pref/font-xxx.prf always will be loaded, for both graphical and text modes.

You can edit font-xxx.prf and add a line like this:

Code:
%:feature.prf
This should load your feature.prf file.

Thank you, Hajo.

That prompt me in the right direction and to investigate a little further. Not sure either if this is a recommended method. But it worked perfectly.

Created a new file font.prf in the game's user directory and inserted there the alterations. This will load last and override the default settings where needed. It can also guarantee higher compatibility with new versions without having to make the change again every time one is made available. I guess I could also use part of the existing code in pref/font.prf just so I could be more selective of which interface to make the changes for, but I'm not concerned with that.

I think I'm finally getting the gist of Angband's configuration.
Only thing missing is where do I find the color mappings for the font*.prf family of files?

The font.prf in the user directory is better. I didn't know that such would work, so I learned something, too

I found this table with color indices (used in the pref files) and the color codes (used in the object/monster files)

Code:
/*
 * Angband "attributes" (with symbols, and base (R,G,B) codes)
 *
 * The "(R,G,B)" codes are given in "fourths" of the "maximal" value,
 * and should "gamma corrected" on most (non-Macintosh) machines.
 */
#define TERM_DARK		0	/* 'd' */	/* 0,0,0 */
#define TERM_WHITE		1	/* 'w' */	/* 4,4,4 */
#define TERM_SLATE		2	/* 's' */	/* 2,2,2 */
#define TERM_ORANGE		3	/* 'o' */	/* 4,2,0 */
#define TERM_RED		4	/* 'r' */	/* 3,0,0 */
#define TERM_GREEN		5	/* 'g' */	/* 0,2,1 */
#define TERM_BLUE		6	/* 'b' */	/* 0,0,4 */
#define TERM_UMBER		7	/* 'u' */	/* 2,1,0 */
#define TERM_L_DARK		8	/* 'D' */	/* 1,1,1 */
#define TERM_L_WHITE	9	/* 'W' */	/* 3,3,3 */
#define TERM_L_PURPLE	10	/* 'P' */	/* ??? */
#define TERM_YELLOW		11	/* 'y' */	/* 4,4,0 */
#define TERM_L_RED		12	/* 'R' */	/* 4,0,0 */

#define TERM_L_BLUE		14	/* 'B' */	/* 0,4,4 */

Ah! Perfect. Silly me, I seem to remember seeing that sometime ago too. On a source file, I think. Or maybe one of the configuration files. I shall look into it later tonight. It should be just a matter of converting to hexadecimal, I suppose.

Thanks again, Hajo.

You're welcome. This table was from src/defines.h, but some of the file headers in edit/*.txt do have similar information.
