iPhone Rogue

Just stumbled on Rogue for the iPhone, I think it should be worth looking at. Working as it is, it would be possible to make angband for the iPhone. Anyone up to the challenge? I personnaly dont have the tools right now, and I dont want to jailbreak my phone.

This has been discussed a little. The main problem is how to design the interface - the iPhone touch interface doesn't have very high resolution, and adding something like a bluetooth keyboard (which is possible) seems to defeat the purpose a bit. Onscreen software keyboard is possible, but not much fun.

not sure how progress is coming for iPhone, but as a recent Droid convert, I immediately tracked this down:

http://angdroid.org/


seems to work pretty well - enough to get my fix in airports, etc

I did not know of that variant, was it posted somewhere? It seems to be quite old, I probably missed it.

Screenshots definitely look great. I am worried about so much information on so small a screen, though. Is that readable in practice?

Wow, this kinda motivates me to buy an android device and use it as a portable console for playing angband (-:

Well, we do have a Terminal UI.
So we could have a server where everyone can play angband through any telnet interface. If somebody would set it up.

NAO has even a java script based telnet client where you can play nethack with any java script capable browser.

Which means I can play nethack or crawl at work, but not angband.

I just tested, and with a little tweaking (using pure ASCII) Angband runs correctly inside of Anyterm (http://anyterm.org). So it would definitely be possible to create a public Angband server.

Pav, would you want to host something like that on oook? Too intensive? I could put something like this on my server but people would have to sign up for accounts (and I would have to write some sort of crazy front-end).

Unless you want everyone to run the same savefile, you will have to create a mad frontend, because leaving people to sign up for shell account is not going to fly. A virtual machine or jail would be a good solution for this.

I do not see myself geetting around to set that up anytime soon, so probably some motivated individual should take up the mantle here.

Using -u and -L it is possible for multiple players to use the same user account with different save files, pref files and dump locations. I just tested it.

I just wrote a very simple shell that just prompts for a username/password and launches the angband with the correct flags if the user authenticates. I'm going to create a webband user whose shell is set to that and then run anytermd as the webband user and see if it works.

Ideally if this works it would be cool to tie into the oook user DB, which is why I asked.
