Necklace of the Eye frontend

Post by PowerWyrm » Sun Mar 27, 2016 8:37 pm

I'm using this with PWMAngband to get alternate display modes like isometric or first person PoV. I'm wondering if it would work with TomeNET, especially to display tiles.

Pre-requisite: a full console client. Angband (and PWMAngband) has such client (GCU) which uses Curses and is really minimalistic.

What do we need to make it work with TomeNet?

- a console client (like the GCU client from Angband -- compile with NCurses for Linux and PDCurses for Windows)
- a set of custom tiles

I'm dummy at programming :(Compiling something... Last time I compiled C program 10+ years ago :) It would be quite hard for me. I even have no idea what is console client :oops: So not much help from me there :roll:

But there is quite good guide about this program: http://www.roguetemple.com/z/noteye/dev.php

Tiles could be found there: http://www.roguebasin.com/index.php?tit ... ical_tiles

For example, http://rltiles.sourceforge.net/ is great looking tiles and completely free.

I'll be glad to help with drawing and assigning tiles to TomeNet objects, but to do so I need dummy instructions :mrgreen:

I saw your message in-game that you started compiling GCU. Any good news? :)

Unfortunately you need some special compiler to get anything from the source because it's not ANSi complient and spits thousands of compilation error with a normal compiler. So I gave up. If anyone is willing to compile the source with main.gcu as its main entry point, feel free to do so.
