No graphics?

Hi all, I used to play angband, and have come back after a few years of playing tome and furyband. I can'rt seem to get any of the graphics to work. The options are in the menu bar, but the game can't find them. What am I missing? Thanks for your help.

Assuming you are trying to use the David Gervais tiles. Are the files 32x32.bmp and mask32.bmp present in the Angband/lib/xtra/graf folder?
If not, you can get them from here.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply. Yes, they are in the folder, as are the 8x8 and 16x16. The warning I get is that they cannot be read, and then "cannot initialize graphics".

What OS are you on and what version of Angband? Did you install over an older version or use a fresh folder?

Windows xp, and it's a fresh install of 3.1.1.1626.

Just tested it, no problems encountered. All graphic modes are functional.

Could it be related to screen resolution?


Are you able to view the .bmp files in any graphics viewer? Just in case the download was corrupted.

Is the path to the files as supposed ".\lib\xtra\graf" ?

I just opened the 32x32 file on it's own, and I could see all the characters on a black background. I suippose that answers the first two questions.

Forgive my ignorance, but I'm not sure how to check the path to the file.

What he means is, are the bmp's in a folder called graf, within a folder called xtra, within a folder called lib, within the parent folder, Angband. It's the only place Angband will look for them. If all else fails, try rebooting.

Have you started a game yet? As I recall, after a new install the graphics won't work until you have a character going.

Well, but the option from the menu is only available after a new game was started. Since he has the option and gets an error message there must be something else.
