As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta16 ! See

Not everything I wanted to have is in this release but my life is a bit complicated currently, not much free time until the end of the year, so those 118 lines of changelog will have to do ;>
Release highlights:

* Online automatic character-sheets: all your characters will automatically be uploaded to
* New class: the Doomed
* New trees for Anorithils
* FOV code speed improvment
* Persistent hotkey assignements when quickbirthing!

Expanded changelist:?

* Warning about the crypt danger
* Custom mouse cursor support (disablable in the video options)
* Infusions & Runes can be used while silenced
* The game now computes "keyframes", those are the number of reference frames displayed. Simply this means that particles effects and such that are dependant on being called 30 times per seconds now work independantly from actual FPS.
* Game:display() now receives a "nb_keyframes" parameter, it should be passed to to the map an other such things (see the example module, it is easy to update, although technically not needed)
