FAQ: Problems running ToME

#1 Post by Xandor Tik'Roth »

This is the official FAQ topic for any and all issues that people have run into running the ToME program. Everything from Windows 98 to Windows 7, post them in the discussion thread. This FAQ will constantly be updated as new information and questions come in.
And it was such a good idea...

Q: Why do I sometimes get a trail of @'s as I walk on windows?
A: Need to ensure "Bizzare Display" is turned on for the main window.

Q: What are there no '.' on the ground when playing on windows in ascii mode?
A: Need to update your lib/pref/font-win.prf file. One already fixed is here.

(Tested on WinXP and Windows7)

Q: Princess Quest Rooms sometimes do not appear in dungeon?
A: A bug in 2.3.5 causes this to happen. Was fixed (along with other issues) by sigsegv in a CVS patch in 2008. Unofficial Windows 32bit version (compile by me) here:
