Question subwindows in ncurses

Hi! another question, i installed the curses only version of angband 4.2.0. Is there a way to have subwindows like the graphical version has? i installed this version because i play mainly in 2 notebook screens that are 15" and 17" and i like having big characters to see well, but sometimes i play in a 22" external screen and would like to have the subwindows with some always updated info about items, monsters, messages, and the like.

If it's not possible, I'm thinking maybe theres a way to have the graphical version installed, and have the curses version available when i play on the smaller screens, right? like, the opposite, compile and install with graphic support, but having the ncurses only option.

Thank you all!

Gwarl will become famous soon enough
The simplest method is to use eg
Quote:
-mgcu --n4
which will partition the screen into quarters. There's an undocumented feature which allows you to specify desired window partitions more precisely, but it's rather complicated and only explained inside a comment in main-gcu.c

I think -mx11 and -msdl should be available by default in precompiled binaries? But regardless binaries can be produced supporting multiple frontends.

Sadly it's not working for me, it gives me the output of '--help' when i type 'angband -mgcu --n4', it only works if i type 'angband -mgcu -- n4' but it didn't split in subwindows

It's
Code:
 -mgcu -- -n4
. The -- serves to separate "front-end options" from main game options.
