Tangar’s tileset for TomeNET

“Tangar’s tileset” – 1-bit graphics for TomeNET. Its raster font (“pseudographics font”) with various sizes. Information for developers

Why you should use this tileset? 😀 Cause it give you possibility to ‘read’ game situations faster and without mistakes! Example, different ‘D’s in TomeNET by default have differences only by color and flickering.. Try to understand who is who here:
In my tileset it became piece of cake!


I hope this tileset would safe you from a lot of YASD’s in TomeNET 😀

Installation:
1) extract .FON files to \lib\xtra\font
2) extract .prf files to \lib\user
3) in-game push “=” -> “f” and use “+” and “-” to surf through fonts 🙂
Update: TomeNET devs included fonts in past client, so you only need to do – is the last step 😀

How tileset looks like:
Manual installation:
1) Copy the file 21X31TG.FON to TomeNET\lib\xtra\font
2) Copy the file font-custom-21X31TG.prf to TomeNET\lib\user
3) In the config file (TomeNET.ini) assign option:
Font=.\lib\xtra\font\21X31TG.FON
for the first two windows – [Main window] and [Mirror window].

Troubleshooting:

1) If you got problems with walls appearence – turn off option for walls: “=” -> “1” -> font_map_solid_walls
2) Also if nothing work, check where you client stores userdata. From last TomeNET patchnotes:

Windows 7 and higher cause file access trouble when the client tries to write userdata to the folder where TomeNET is installed. Instead, user data needs to be in the system-specific user home folder (usually “C:\users”). Because of that, on first launch the Windows client now copies the lib/scpt and lib/user folder to the user’s home path and then uses that copy instead. If you use an older Windows version and/or know what you are doing, you can edit TomeNET.ini config file and set “DontMoveUser” option to “1” before actually launching the client to prevent this behaviour.
So if you do not use “DontMoveUser” option as “1”, you have to put font to system-specific user home folder (ex: C:\users\<username>\TomeNET-user)

3) If you wanna use tileset at Linux, please check this manual – how to convert your font to Linux format.

Notes to remeber:

As far as we got limited glyphs, some bosses got not precise appearence. This bosses not too powerful, but still its nice to remebers some exceptions:

1) Kavlax the Many-Headed — looks like ‘M’ (hydra), but actually its ‘d’
2) Ghatanothoa — looks like ‘#’ (tentacles), but actually its ‘v’
3) Shudde M’ell — looks like ‘J’ (snake), but actually its ‘w’
