A few small things:

* Starting as a mage, I was given a pair of gloves with my starting equipment. Kind of odd, considering it makes 'my hands unsuitable for spell casting. Confusing for newbs at any rate.

* In the char selection screen, if you pick a race/class combo such that all the 'school' choices are greyed out, and hit '*' to pick one at random, it loops forever trying to find an approved choice. (Eg. Try Fire Giant >> Warrior Mage >> Thrown weapons >> '*', freeze.)

* The top- and left-edge of the town and wilderness screens (at least in Hobbiton and the East Road) are not properly illuminated (you need to be standing right next to the edge of the map to see it). Looks fine for the bottom and right edges of the map.

Otherwise, looking good as always. it's slowly getting a lot more user-friendly (especially newbie-friendly). I haven't really tested out the new version yet (don't have it running on my mac), but will keep you guys posted if I notice anything else.

After checking with the Angband comic, Morgoth's gray. Oh well. Maybe it's just some kind of waterish giant the @'s fighting with :P

I don't have any artistic skills whatsoever, but drawing something simple and small isn't really that hard. Just give me some ideas as to what would be the most fitting theme for UnAngband and I'll give it a try.
I know - I used to be a graphic designer in another life And with no drawing talent, what's more...

I'd like something with a tower in the foreground, and a purple evening sky in the background. That should be distinctive enough a colour and shape and mysterious looking enough. The icon should be roughly round, with the tower 'breaking out' of the round shape.

Enough detail for you?

And thanks again for the quick icon above...

(Edit: Just noticed this fan art. Too dark for an icon).

Woah. Very nice fan art.
I could try changing it a bit to fit it as a icon. Although the details will get lost in the small versions..
I'll see what I can do about the icon and post here when I get something done.

At the moment I'm facing some very irritating (random reboot) computer problems, so it can take me some time to post something.

I'm double posting because otherwise nobody would notice

Here's what I was able to do:


Any feedback appreciated.

Then sun/moon feels very atmospheric, but I can't quite feel the tower. I guess it seems narrower towards the top to show it's so high, but something spoils the impression for me. Perhaps the entrance is too big/too blurry. Or something. Anyway, a very distinctive icon, not just another stupid logo with blond half-orc beauty in the background.

Good point. Making the tower thicker was a good idea IMO.

Stupid question

Having played Angband in the last month, decided to take Unangband for a spin, latest 0.6.2-wip6 version on win2k.

Huh... where is the dungeon stair? I feel really stupid, but for the life of me can't find a stair or any kind of exit anywhere on Hobbiton. Can someone help a (obviously clueless) newbie out here, please

Yeah, there used to be a message at startup that you can travel in wilderness by pressing '<', but it got removed in the last release. Of course, Hobbiton, a respectable town, has no dungeons.

Ok... so... where do I go? What do I do? Surely there is more to the world than the little granite enclosed square and the mottley crew of housewifes.

I am sure that after someone has enlightened me I will have a doh! moment.
