Some Android tablets, esp bigger ones like the one just picked up, come with (optional) keyboards now. It sucks when there's game that could obviously benefit from keyboard support, but has a touch UI (because developers are locked into a Android=no physical keyboard mentality). I would hope that NPPAndroid would support both touch and keyboard commands.

Yes, the keyboard support should work on all platforms. Although it is a good point and I need to give the player some ability to control the UI instead of assuming they are going to use either a keyboard or the touchscreen.

One step closer! Knowledge screens are done. On to the player character screen.

Both. They are in the same codebase.

The way the new UI works is when you open the game, you can start a game of NPPAngband or NPPMoria. If you load a prior character, it detects which game the savefile is for and loads it up.

You can also close up a character in NPPAngband and then play a game in NPPMoria, and vice-versa, without having to exit the program.

Here is a sample of the statusbar, albeit for an absurd wizard mode character.

The icons, from left to right, tell the player:
1) They are not currently searching. You can click the icon to search, or enter the keyboard command.
2) Food status, currently full.
3) The character can learn 47 new spells (the absurd part). The player can click on the icon to study, as well as access the command by keyboard.
4) As the mouse hover shows, trap detect has not been cast.

There are icons for all temporary status (word-of-recall, heroism, resist fire, etc) that will pop up when the state is active.



The final feature before this will be playtestable beta is the character screen. There are not yet macros, multiple windows, character dumps and a couple other features, but anyone willing to playtest the basic new UI will get the chance very soon.

One final dialog box; the new birth screen. It needs uncluttering, but everything is on one screen. Things don't have to be selected in any particular order any more (gender-race-class-stats-name)Anything can be changed at any time. For the new players, the complete help topic can be called up for every field of information on the screen with a simple mouse hover.

In terms of a basic playable beta, that was the last thing on the list. There are some minor things to clean up, but a release for anyone wanting to playtest and provide feedback will be out shortly. It is missing some important features that would make playing a complete game tedious (the extra windows, macros), but finally the finish line is in sight.




edit: It isn't nearly this big onscreen. Not sure why the png file is so big.

That looks very static. If you add more birth options, what happens to the text below it? Likewise for classes/races.
