Thank you,... There is so much to do on the content side. Im working now on it....


I know your pain. Now that I am getting much older, I figured out that updating 15 big programs was far too hard and am combining all of them into one program. Lots of pain. Good thing is that nobody knows about it so I don't have to issue updates:):)

Unfortunately, a serious error had crept in in the last build.
The result of this error was that the output screen was not initialized.
Many will not have noticed the error, as the game still
starts correctly.
In the further course, however, there are inconsistencies, which are not always conspicuous, and are attributed to the current progress of the game.

This update fixed this error.

As the engine and game continue to grow, there may be other errors
these should be processed by the error-handling routine.

Content:
A new (Loot) chest type to find in the dungeon.

To receive all updates, it is necessary to select "NewGame" from the home screen.

Critical update:
Despite all efforts, a memory error, a memory leak went undetected
This and many other minor bugs will be fixed with this update.

Known problem:
Players can slip through them into other collision objects when they collide with smaller fast enemies.

The following changes and additions are available (no claim to completeness):
Shortcuts:
CTRL+F displays a compact debug output.
INSERT displays an extensive debug output.
M switches music on/off
CTRL+S stores the current position of the map.
CTRL+N loads the last saved (valid) map and position.
ESC program is located in the taskbar
P = Pause (no function in "Towns" and "Shops")
X = Axe (player must have a direction of movement)

The buffer function is deactivated (default),
If you want, you can customize them in the "ini" script of the Dwarfking directory:
.
.
.
.
USE_VIRTUAL_BUFFER
0 x ---- a 1 to activate the buffer (can slightly increase the streaming perfomance) VIRTUAL_BUFFER_MAX_OBJECTS 32 ---- this number should not be changed, any value >0 is possible
.
.
.

Starting with this version, the health bars, various enemies are displayed.

This shows how effective your own attacks are
(with the axe).

Attention:
if you leave the combat zone, the opponents are healed. (because of the way the engine loads the data, seems to me to be a good way to involve the player in the fight, here, as with many processes, adjustments can still occur.

Level Up speed for player char should now a good value.

Bugfix:
Error-handling routine.
Error requesters with restart prompt were incorrectly displayed.
(This should only happen in the event of serious errors, such as incorrect memory access).

Currently, the engine seems to be working correctly.

Update of the day:
Enemies attack more often and more deadly.
Player now has shield (passive function).
Is the rolled shield value above the opponent's rolled attack value
the difference is deducted from the shield, the player does not suffer any damage.
The shield recovers automatically after about 5 seconds.
If the shield is consumed or the opponent's attack value is above the rolled shield value, life energy is deducted from the player.

Life energy and shield value can reach higher values through the player's higher levels.

Bugfixes:
Fixed a bug in combat logic.
