Hullo everybody!

This is not my standard "release message" because this is no standard release indeed.

After a (ok, very) long time in development, I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of 3 products:
- T-Engine 3.0.0: The T-Engine reborn anew! Most of it has been rewritten, it features extreme customizability, self-contained modules, packs, addons, lua descriptors, deep flag values, new and never-seen-before bugs and about 2000 other features I just cannot list here(mostly because after working 2 years on it they seem all too natural to me ;> )
- A T.o.M.E. 3.0.0 embryo: ToME is being rewritten as a T-Engine3 module, from the ground up. The process is far from complete(only the barrow-downs is available, and it itself is not complete).
- O.D.E: the One Day Example. A module I decided to make to show people what a basic module can look like and to provide a basic skeleton for their own modules. It could also be considered for the 1DRL challenge on rgrd as I made it in one afternoon.

They are available as one package "tome-300alpha" at

As I've said, this is an alpha version, this means there are still work in progress in there, you WILL see funny colored error messages and you wont be able to play(ToME at least, ODE should be fine).

A note about ODE too, while it is not complex, I probably forgot some old stuff in there that is not very revelant, I'l lremove it with time. sorry :)

Now the engine as is it can be used by other (adventurous) people to make modules, I do not promise I won't break compatibility until the 300 release, but I'll try and in any cases I'll try to help module makers. Because by making modules they will be helping me test and improve(yes yes debug too) the engine.

There is a mostly empty section on the ToME Wiki( ... 20Handbook) about module making, it will be filled up with time, and feel free to help!

In the same idea, do not mail me questions about module making, for two good reasons:
- for the time being I cannot send mails, my smtp is down .. (hey nobody got an smtp server for me ? ;)
- if the question/answer is on teh wiki, other people can benefit from it

And now, adventurous and curious souls, go download it!

PS: I currently have no means to make a windows build myself, sorry ..

[tome] joylove: You can't just release an expansion like one would release a Kraken XD
[tome] phantomfrettchen: your ability not to tease anyone is simply stunning ;)
