There's a fairly big bug in Beta 11, grab Game.lua from Git to fix it.

Also, I've managed to implement throwing potions at enemies, AuraoftheDawn will be happy to know it!

:shock: *blink* ...Okay, now I'm nervous. :oops: :wink: Bear in mind that it is kind of incomplete at the moment (notably missing secret doors and a lot of room types). Do let me know if you find any bugs. [Oh, and you may want to turn off 'debug_tunnels' at the top of T2DungeonLevel.lua, as that spews enormous amounts of debug logging into the log file (I'll get around to turning that off myself eventually, once I'm convinced it actually works...)]

So far, your generator is working better than the T-Engine generator (no 1-room levels so far and blocked off rooms).

The amount of room types could be larger, but even those are an improvement :)

You probably noticed I've pushed a module file for 11.5 to te4.

Waiting for T-Engine 1.4.0 to make use of the many improvements and fixes.

Post subject:  Re: The Veins of the Earth

1.4.0 is out, I've used the occasion for more bugfixes (especially when it comes to item generation).

I've also ported hprperfmance's improvements to flying text.

Post subject:  Re: The Veins of the Earth

I have added some logging to skill points to verify it works as intended. It does.

To prevent player confusion, I made two important changes.

Level up screen reminds you to use the class points first

Backgrounds no longer affect your skill points - all they do is give you a free +2/+2 skill bonus feat

As you probably noticed, VotE was put on hiatus as I found a job and needed something less intensive to occupy my free time.

Right now the job let up a bit and I'm trying to bring VotE up to speed with all the updates to ToME that happened in the meantime :D

Finally, the third element of any good roguelike is working. I mean TRAPS!

(The files were there from the beginning, but they were full of goofs from the time I thought code was magic lol)

Long time no post because I decided to move to LOVE2D. The T-Engine based version, however, will still remain available.
