Additional release notes about Windows binaries

If you don't already have GTK installed (e.g., for the GIMP picture editor) please download and run (with default settings) the GTK installer from

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/

If characters on your screen resize and misalign when they turn bold, try picking a different monospace font from the right-mouse button menu. If this doesn't work, turn bold fonts off via colorIsBold = False in the config file or --noColorIsBold on commandline.

If you use the keypad and it doesn't work correctly, you have several options. Turn NumLock off (or on, the game should be playable in this mode, too). Remember that you can run with keypad keys and either Shift or Control. Alternatively you can use the uk8o79jl keys on the main keyboard. If you instead want to set up the VI keys (aka roguelike keys), set the movementViKeys_hjklyubn option in the [ui] section of the config file to True.
