Fizzix, what version did you try and what were your problems? (i.e. crashed/froze/couldn't open main menu or whatever)
It would freeze repeatedly. I was also unable to do a simple thing like "assign stat points" I couldn't figure out what key to use, and since I thought "this should be easy" I got frustrated quickly and left. That with the very sluggish game response left me with the idea that this was not a game for me.

What version did you use? One of the first betas did freeze sometimes on level gen, but that bug is long gone.

Also, the point buy displays instructions and the roller is as simple as clicking a reroll button.

As for the game being sluggish - it's pretty zippy on my computer, which is pretty poor by today's standards.

I don't remember what version but it wasn't too long ago. Essentially nothing worked at all. I read the instructions, they did not work. It might have been a keymap setting I don't know, but the expected payoff wasn't high enough for me to troubleshoot.

I was unable to get past the character creation screen too. I could roll the stats but couldn't type anything for a name, one time I got right click for random name to work. It seemed to me like my small window size (which is as big as my screen) was causing things to overlap and the cancel/premade/accept buttons did not seem clickable. The whole time on that screen it was pegging a core at max cpu. Win7, beta 5.4 which I downloaded late yesterday. The old version of tome4 I have seems fine (I've never actually played it), it also has the cpu problem on the character creation screen, so that isn't your fault.

I gave it a try, and unfortunately Im having the same experience. The character creation screen isn't working. I can't enter a name. I can't get the right click to generate a random name to work.

I don't see a way to get a starting perk except to hit 'reroll'.

Right clicking a stat doesn't decrease it after I hit reroll, maybe I'm not supposed to?

I thought maybe you shipped with some so I clicked the Load Premade button and can't get back out, the close button doesn't work. I don't have any premades. ESC key doesn't get me out either.

I can start the game without selecting a name or spending any stat points. Then a menu pops up and asks me my name... this box does work, and I can name my guy.

The bottom line of the window seems to be cut off, like I can only see the top half of the "Dungeon lvl: " text, and I'm missing I think the bottom line of the message log.

Changing the resolution changes some thing's placement, but going to a lower resolution my abilities bar is cut off halfway across its width, though the minimap is in the right place. I just tried to move the abilities bar, grabbed a skill, dropped it, and since there is no outline on the ability bar, nor the usual tome "unlock UI" stuff, I'm not sure how you're supposed to move the bar, as well as see where to drop your abilities onto it, though since I've played tome I can probably figure out that I have to hit 'm' and go dig through and put the ability back in the blank space.

Switching graphics mode to ascii seems to have re-positioned the abilities bar and the message log UI so that I can see the entirety of both, but it didn't actually switch it to ascii. I guess you dont support ascii mode?

Is there a story or town or something to this game, or just the dungeon? The F1 help gives some description of the basic mechanics, but not story, goal.

Help also doesn't cover anything about the myriad of DnD classes, mechanics, and all the crazy detailed stuff I'm sure you've implemented from 3.5 or 4e i.e. I don't know from the game actually basic stuff like what I _should_ spec as stats for my new <class>

I was made aware of the problems with char creation on small screens yesterday evening and I'll be working on them soon! I didn't know about the cut-offs in main game, though.

Other things:
  • Name character box on char screen - it's not working yet I'll probably remove it to avoid confusion. The other box does indeed work
  • Closing load premade - click the corner if ESC doesn't work (I should probably add that tip to the Help)
  • Ascii mode - the switch is there but not completely working, I wish I knew why it doesn't actually switch the tiles off
  • I don't see a way to get a starting perk except to hit 'reroll' - this was actually intended (so that there's a reason to reroll instead of picking manually)

I plan to implement a town plane/level some time in the future and quests will come too. For now, all story you get is the little notes.

Classes are described in char creation / class selection. A lot of stuff is described in the character sheet, too.
Tell me what's missing and I'll fill it in.

Keep that sweet feedback coming and I'll know what else to fix/improve/make clearer!

A hotfix for those with 1366x768 or similar resolutions:

https://bitbucket.org/Zireael07/the-...ds/Birther.lua

Save to /modules/VotE/dialogs and overwrite the existing file.

(As a bonus, it fixes the Cancel button in load premade, too, and removes the mention of right-clicking to adjust stats since it isn't in and won't be due to calculations working only in one directions)
