Sil-Q 1.5 beta, first release

Full details up at https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/r.../v1.5.0-beta1a, including a brief overview of changes; the most important is of course that this is the first official appearance of MicroChasm's new tileset.

Windows binaries are at https://github.com/sil-quirk/sil-q/r....5.0-beta1.zip.

Please download it and try it out.

The link asks to log into GitHub (I don't have an account).

Is it a compiled version?

How is the Windows version built? Mingw, MSVC? I'll assume makefiles since I don't see any VC project files or anything hinting at Cmake. I see some Apple Xcode files, are you building a Windows application on a Mac?

Mingw. The Mac support is dead, as I have no access to a Mac, but all traces haven't been removed in case one of the occasional Mac lovers who wishes Mac support wants to put some time in to restore it.

Well now the plan on getting sub 2k turns before the next version won't happen. It was fun while it lasted though

Played around a bit with the tiles, looks great overall! Especially like the wolves. Do like the extra earlygame monsters as well. Did find a few angband weapons as well. Neat, although that's a lot of extra XP for the ealry-midgame? Has anything been changed/removed to compensate?

Removing Danger/Smithing bonuses was the right call, didn't really notice any cost reductions to compensate though? Artifact shortbows can still be imbued with resistances which makes them effectively a third jewelry slot for melee characters.

Haven't played around with the new abilities yet. How do the Oaths work? Do they straight up forbid you from certain actions or are the bonuses forfeit if you do or what?

Some of the more powerful egos are a good deal rarer now, and in particular the stat-boosting egos "Of Might" and "Of Resilience" are now mithril-only. Mid-game you may have more experience, but you're less likely to have that end-game-worthy stat point.

End-game smithing should be a little weaker, but early to mid-game should benefit from the guaranteed forges now being at 100, 300 and 500 and the greater variety of egos. I had the aid of some smiths very adept at breaking the game to test this in what was originally the 1.4.3-beta before tiles entered the picture.

The bonuses are forfeit if you do; however you will be warned when taking an action that will violate an active Oath and need to confirm you are willing to break the Oath before going through with it.

Got a few games in with the new tiles. Stupid deaths midgameish so far, pretty rusty.

Scatha the Worm lacks a tile, making it invisible. Being under the effects of Rage also replaces enemy tiles with black boxes. The Whispering shadow blurb could perhaps use a editorial, the "sounds (voices?)" looks a bit rough.
