You can now select the font (name and size) by adding the following lines to the adom.cfg file:

Code:
Font_Name = Courier New
Font_Size = 15

Does this allow to make a game full-screen?

No, this is only meant as a preliminary fix until the NotEye integration is finished (NotEye allows you to play in full-screen).

I was thinking these should be mentioned in the adom.cfg file and the in-game manual.

Also, the two parameters appear as "unrecognized" (red color) when you use the '=' command as of 1.2.0pr3.

I'm sorry, but I don't have adom.cfg in archive of Prerelease 3. There is only Adom.exe, why?

adom will create the default config for you the first time it runs

In my Windows version it doesn't.

The adom.cfg can now be found at the following location:
Code:
c:\documents and settings\<user name>\local settings\application data\adom\adom_dat\adom.cfg

With a non-English Windows, try %localappdata%\ADOM\adom_dat\adom.cfg

This should perhaps be included in the ancardia.com FAQ as people keep asking about it.

Good point, I've updated the FAQ. :)

I think font selection might be bugged with non fixed-width fonts.



(Not sure whether it's supposed to work or not)

Sorry, non-fixed width fonts don't work...
