Update: I've been playing around with my new magic engine.

  • I've added three teleport spells: Teleport, Teleport Monster and Escape Dungeon
  • Spell animations have been diversified: bolt spells *, ray spells # and the Teleport Monster spell is O

EDIT: Demo added.

EDIT2: The controls are still the same as before. New commands:
  • COS opens the magic menu
  • division key casts currently equipped spell
  • plus cycles through spells

In general, when it looks like you're stuck on a prompt, try pressing ENTER or MODE. I haven't cleaned up certain areas in the code yet, so...

Looks nice. :) I'm not a fan of having to go into a menu every time I want to use a spell though. It seems it would slow the pace of the game as well. I'd suggest being able to "equip" a spell so you can just push a button and attack with that spell. If you want to make it even more user friendly you could use something like +/- to cycle through your spells and change which one is equipped. + would move to the next spell you have and select it, and minus would move to the previous spell and select it. You could even use your text box on the bottom to display which spell you are on (for a few seconds) as you are cycling through them.

That's a nice idea, and not hard to implement. Noted.

EDIT: Wish granted.
Awesome! Gonna try the demo out. :)

Thanks :) Make sure to tell me what you think. I elaborated a little on the newly added controls in my post above.

Soo, I've been coding over summer and I've made some progress, although not nearly as much as I would have liked to. Traps have been implemented, and I've cleaned up some old code (I'm not done with that yet).

Progress is slow because summer has been VERY hectic. I've been working a database management job in July which didn't leave me much time for off-the-job coding. Did make a nice amount of money there, though :P

Went traveling with my SO throughout the first two weeks of August, which was fun most of the time until she got diagnosed with a chronic illness (I'd prefer not to disclose any details), so I had to fly home alone :/ All things considered it did turn out a little better than I expected, but the news was a big shock nevertheless.

To add to all that, my grandfather's health worsened considerably over the course of August, and he passed away last week. Burial is going to take place tomorrow, so I hope to finally get some rest after that.

There's been other, less intense stuff, but anyway this should suffice for now.

I'll upload a screenshot of the new features ASAP, but I'm probably going to have to power down for a couple days when all this mess has been dealt with.

Wow, that's quite a bunch of sorry events :/

Despite that, it's good to see some progress on Rogue :)

Sorry to hear about all that happened. Hopefully things get better soon.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
