Rogue
« on: March 06, 2023, 01:36:17 AM »
Hi

As a big fan of the Rogue dungeon crawler I fixed some annoyances I had with it.

bugfixes:
compatible with fastmem now
rogue -s now can return to the shell
scroll of wild magic is now immune to potion of discernment (clearly the developers wanted it this way)
fixed the three typos (thuderclaps, missle and instructiuons)
scroll of wild magic is now shown with its name after declining to use it
if you identify an item where you have two of it (or more) all item descriptions get updated.
setting the macro now works (shift-f)
scroll names do not end with a space anymore
update screen titlebar after restoring a game to show rank and stuff
fixed creation of gold in _create_obj (wizard mode only)
the ability to see the invisible actually works now

changes:
if the Rogue.Char file is missing the game still works (try this! ;)
show_map and show_passages code is now reconnected (wizard mode only)
food_left and show_inpack is added (wizard mode only)
fastmode now has a small pause added so you can still see the player
bitmap handling now uses only 4 big memory allocations and not 288 small ones
print actual score with color in topten list (seems only to work in v40)
reactivated the beep function
added the shortcuts to the command menu
hiding strength,maxhp and xp in the highscore file (can be overwritten by long names)
limited the repeat count to 99

Cool, thanks for this version! Is the saved game file format still the same (so tools such as MCE will work with it)?

yes, everything is the same with two exceptions:

items which make you see invisible now work
scroll of wild magic will not be detected by potion of discernment (wouldn't make a difference anyway)

hmm, but this is a grey area. It was a commercial game and I don't know if anybody still has claims for it.

I actually have beaten the original EPYX Amiga port one single time. And after extensive research into this game and its many offshoots, I sincerely believe the Amiga version is the best version from the original versions that were released in the 80s.

And now it has been enhanced and repaired even further.

I've downloaded this update and can't wait to try it out. This feels like a glorious bright light (spell) used in a dark room to reveal the exit - cheers, Denis!

To be honest, I have never seen the amulet myself. The best I could accomplish were last week I had the luck of a two handed sword dragon slayer. And even more luck because I saw my first dragon ever and thanks to the weapon enchant it died immediately. This pumped my experience so hard that I could kill several dragons and jabberwockies and griffins and got the rank of Dragonlord. Sadly, I made a mistake and a stupid medusa killed me and I made an entry in the highscore file with 8002 points. Honored by the Guild (means I reached level 26).

There are a couple of items that - if you ever find them - can greatly enhance your chances to winning. It's still extremely probable you'll fail, but if you do find them... boy oh boy. Time to get to the edge of your seat and not quit the game until its natural conclusion.

ah, you're the one from amigalove. I tried to post there but got a server error. I tried to write an email but that also did not work, so I posted it here.

btw, if you get killed in rogue 10% of the gold will be subtracted.

Running great on my A1200-030, A4000-060 but when I try to run on my A500 with ACA500+ I get a hint of the startup screen then black screen and system hang?

Can you be more specific on the hardware and OS details.

My only real hardware where I can test it is an A1000 with 68010 and 2MB fastram and kick 40.63. Development is on FS-UAE.
