MAngband – online roguelike

MAngband – oldschool online roguelike game.

At this page I’ll post my guides and creations for this beautiful game.

Tileset:

This archive contains two versions of font:
1) 24×36 size with extra tiles (it got more customization – like doors, trees
& etc). To use it you should move file ‘_tangar_font-win.prf’ to \MAngband\lib\user  and rename it to ‘font-win.prf’ (don’t forget to make backup) and also put .fon file 24X36.FON to \lib\xtra\font
2) all other sizes got native MAngband ascii. You could use them as it is; no replacing of .prf file needed, just put .fon to \lib\xtra\font . 
Attention! If you do not wish to use 24×36 – DO NOT RENAME ‘_tangar_font-win.prf’ to ‘font-win.prf’.

Addon for full-screen:
This is addon for Windows client. Addon solves “alt” problem, removes borders, cropping duplicated stroke, making game fullscreen, fixing numpad+5 key, make NumLock, CapsLock and WinKey safe to push while play and give possibility to bind macro to them. Also gives wider range of macro to Tab and tilda.
Important: do not use NumLock for ‘battle’ actions!

Instructions:
1) download AutoHotkey https://autohotkey.com/ – its free program
2) download addon http://tangar.info/wp-content/uploads/games/mangband/mangbandV1-0.ahk  // to download: RMB* -> ‘save link as…’
3) customize addon option – to hide or not to hide top stoke in game window (edit file it in Notepad, like common text file)
4) run addon file as ‘administrator’ (create shortcut to the file on desktop and choose in file prorerties ‘run as administrator’.
5) run game and use MMB+LMB* to activate addon in active window, MMB+RMB to deactivate. 
*L/RMB –  left/right mouse button. MMB – middle mouse button; 

Also you have to edit your mangband.ini file to have right amount of strokes for messages window. I use:

[Main window]
Visible=1
FontFile=24X36.FON
PositionX=1
PositionY=188
Columns=80
Rows=24
Resizable=0
Font=.\lib\xtra\font\24X36.FON
Graf=16X16.BMP

[Mirror window]
Visible=1
FontFile=21X31.FON
PositionX=-1
PositionY=0
Columns=80
Rows=7
CapSize=13
Resizable=1
Font=.\lib\xtra\font\21X31.FON
Graf=8x13.bmp
