The ADOM Diary: 11/15/1999

Dear diary,

I finally have managed to get back to ADOM development after five turbulent months full of private and professional turmoil, changes and activities. ADOM support will continue and I'm going to try finishing a new version shortly before Christmas... this version won't have all the features planned for the next release but rather will contain a number of bugs for the most pressing problems and will have the first part of the monster inventory code: monsters will pick up and carry around items but won't yet be able to use them.

Today I finished the first part of the monster inventory code: a data infrastructure has been designed and implemented and the basic stuff for handling monster inventories is there. Now I have to make these beasts pick up stuff and carry it around... to be continued...


XBox Console Thomas Biskup recommends: XBox Console
"Yes, I confess it - Microsoft has brought me back into console gaming. And there's a simple reason for it: I don't like hardware, I don't like fiddling with systems and I like to take it easy. The XBox system IMHO is as easy to use as its get. You have a built-in hard disc and never have to think about extensions to be able to save games (memory sticks, yikes :-P ), the games are great, the graphics are great and the price is ok. I have spent many hours playing Star Wars Battlefront and Fable and intend to continue doing this. So for me this is a safe bet and I surly will by the XBox 360 as soon as it is available. Of you want a simple console system with great games you can't go wrong here."

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
