Post-challenge patch available

I went and corrected some bugs and UI quirks that were present in the original seven day version.
Also, display font and text size can now be changed via a properties file.

Download here (choose the v1.2 package).

UPDATE: Alright, I screwed up. I left my debug hi-score in the 1.2 package. :( Consider this mistake fixed.

7DRL 2013: hproguelike

As they say: "It's never too late to fall in love. And with love I mean the endless void."

I've just announced (and started) work on my 7DRL for this year. Updates will be posted to the community blog

House Cleaning

It's been a while since my last post. There have been some changes to my plans.

MagmaHack has been discontinued, and I've pulled it from the page. To be honest, I have failed utterly. The existing code, with its horribly flawed architecture, heavy reliance on libjcsi and sluggish performance was in no way acceptable. Since a complete re-write would have been necessary, and my motivation to work with this language and library has decreased considerably in the meantime, I've decided to let the project die.

However, my basic intentions for the project still remain, and will form the base for my next attempt. We'll see how that one fares. I have high hopes.

As the 7DRL Challenge of 2013 approaches, I find myself in the same position as last year: Without an idea and without existing code to plunder. This will be interesting. :p
