Sorry for the whining *shame shame*

Now, at last! Playing the new version of V Angband in console.. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!
So for us noobs what does that mean? Was I the only one that didn't find 'Consolechars' self explanatory? How do I fix it? I wanna play via a ssh session without fracked colors too!

I have no idea, because I don't experience that problem. However, I don't think that playing via SSH would mess up the colours in the same way--are you sure this is the same problem? Could you take a screenshot of your SSH session?

Well, to my understanding it's a font problem, and that the consolechars program can change that font to something else. However, I don't don't know which font to change to, since I haven't taken time to research that.

Ok. I'm a newbie, so not sure how this will work under other distros. I use Ubuntu 6.10.

From virtual console (ctrl+alt+F1-F6)

'consolechars -f /usr/share/consolefonts/Lat15-Fixed16.psf'

This command should load new fonts. Try others in /usr/share/consolefonts/ to find others which might work better for you.

Now as the fonts are fixed (and hopefully most of the colors are pretty much correct) go grab the source from Gumband. Extract gumbandsource, then extract linux_fix.tar.gz.

From the extracted linux_fix.tar.gz read the faq.txt and follow instructions. Or just get into the directory where linux-c-nc.terminfo is and type:

'sudo tic linux-c-nc.terminfo'
'TERM=linux-c-nc'

Colors should be correct now (same as in DOS).

Now are these discolorations due to aricz's ncurses improper color processing fix, or is this just a difference I'm going to see going from x11 to the console no matter what and I should stop complaining?

Um, probably

This looks just like what I get in gcu (Kububtu 7.04).

You're obviously not using:

'sudo tic linux-c-nc.terminfo'
'TERM=linux-c-nc'

Those colors in your screenshots are without the new TERM.
