--- DISCLAIMER --- FrogComposband may ruin your social life, work productivity, or daily exercise routine. You play the game at your own risk; in no event shall the FrogComposband authors owe you a new keyboard, or be liable to you for any other direct, indirect, punitive, magical or other injuries or damages of any nature whatsoever. ----- How to install ----- --- LINUX (instructions by Chris Kousky; lightly edited) Download and unpack the source archive, or clone the git repository: $ git clone https://github.com/sulkasormi/frogcomposband.git Make sure you have the appropriate development packages installed. For example, you might run (Ubuntu or Mint): $ sudo apt-get install autoconf gcc libc6-dev libncursesw5-dev libx11-dev From the root of the source archive: $ sh autogen.sh $ ./configure $ make clean $ make To install, you may need to elevate your credentials: $ su $ make install $ exit Then run frogcomposband as desired: $ frogcomposband -- -n<number of windows> ## for normal ASCII graphics (recommended) or $ frogcomposband -g -- -n<# of windows> ## for 8x8 tile graphics NOTE: some users have reported installation problems when compiling under Linux (and Mac). Running ./configure using the --with-no-install parameter will bypass this issue by building an executable to run in-place. You can change game windows' font, location, and size, by environment variables, for example: $ set env ANGBAND_X11_FONT '-*-*-medium-r-normal--24-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1' $ frogcomposband -- -n Then font size will be changed. You can set ANGBAND_X11_FONT_n for a specific window which has window number n. Window locations are ANGBAND_X11_AT_X_n and ANGBAND_X11_AT_Y_n. Window sizes are ANGBAND_X11_COLS_n and ANGBAND_X11_ROWS_n. (Thanks to Nick McConnell for implementing and improving building under Linux/MAC!) (ALT: For development, doing an install is undesirable. Try the following instead: $ sudo apt-get install clang-3.5 llvm-3.5 $ sh autogen.sh $ ./configure SANITIZE_FLAGS=-fsanitize=address --with-no-install CC=clang-3.5 $ make clean $ make -j4 $ cp src/frogcomposband . $ ASAN_SYMBOLIZER_PATH=/usr/bin/llvm-symbolizer-3.5 ./frogcomposband -g -u<Savefile> -- -n1 Note: Never pass sanitizer flags to CFLAGS as sanitizing configure causes it to fail. Instead, configure will append SANITIZE_FLAGS to CFLAGS and LDFLAGS once it has finished generating test programs. (see configure.ac) Note, you need to remember to copy the executable up after every build (TODO: Fix Makefile to do this!) Also, I like to develop with the address sanitizer enabled at all times. This works best with clang as your compiler, rather than gcc. Of course, 3.5 should be replaced with latest version of clang.). ***Fonts on Linux: My experience with linux has been that the fonts are just plain awful. Here, I document how I managed to install better fonts and use them in FrogComposband. I spent nearly a day on this, so I'm hoping this might prove useful to somebody else. But mostly, it is here to remind me how I did so I don't stumble so much next time.  Install some better fonts. For example $ sudo apt-get install fonts-liberation  See what fonts are on your system that FrogComposband can use: $ xlsfonts Notice that the new fonts aren't there!  Find where the new fonts were installed. For example $ fc-list | grep liberation /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSansNarrow-Italic.ttf: Liberation Sans Narrow:style=Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSans-Regular.ttf: Liberation Sans:style=Regular /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationMono-BoldItalic.ttf: Liberation Mono:style=Bold Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSerif-Italic.ttf: Liberation Serif:style=Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationMono-Bold.ttf: Liberation Mono:style=Bold /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSansNarrow-Regular.ttf: Liberation Sans Narrow:style=Regular /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSerif-Bold.ttf: Liberation Serif:style=Bold /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationMono-Regular.ttf: Liberation Mono:style=Regular /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSans-Italic.ttf: Liberation Sans:style=Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSerif-BoldItalic.ttf: Liberation Serif:style=Bold Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSansNarrow-BoldItalic.ttf: Liberation Sans Narrow:style=Bold Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationMono-Italic.ttf: Liberation Mono:style=Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSans-BoldItalic.ttf: Liberation Sans:style=Bold Italic /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSerif-Regular.ttf: Liberation Serif:style=Regular /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSansNarrow-Bold.ttf: Liberation Sans Narrow:style=Bold /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf: Liberation Sans:style=Bold  Bang head on wall in frustration!!  Tell X Server about the fonts: $ cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/ $ su $ mkfontscale $ mkfontdir $ exit $ cat fonts.dir ... LiberationMono-Regular.ttf -misc-liberation mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-adobe-standard LiberationMono-Regular.ttf -misc-liberation mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-ascii-0 LiberationMono-Regular.ttf -misc-liberation mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-ibm-cp437 ... [and many more] $ xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation $ xset fp rehash $ xlsfonts | grep liberation ... -misc-liberation sans-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1 -misc-liberation sans-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-10 -misc-liberation sans-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-13 -misc-liberation sans-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-15 -misc-liberation sans-medium-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-16 ... [and many more]  Now, try to find a font you like. For example: $ cd [path to frogcomposband] ~/Src/frogcomposband> ANGBAND_X11_FONT='-misc-liberation mono-medium-r-normal--20-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1' ./frogcomposband -mx11 You can play with the point size since these are vector fonts. I chose 20pt since my eyes suck!  Smile. Grab beer to recover from step . --- Curses Curses is for Linux, of course, so everything said above also applies here. To run with a single 'big' terminal, simply run, for example: $ ./frogcomposband -mgcu -uCrusher To add additional terminal windows, you need to specify sub-options. You can configure, from the command line, a strip of terminals on the right hand side of the screen, or on the bottom of the screen, or both. For example: $ ./frogcomposband -mgcu -uCrusher -- -right 57x26,* This specifies that the right hand strip will be be 57 columns wide, and will contain 2 additional terminals. The first one, on top, will be 57x26 (i.e., 26 rows high) while the second terminal will be 57x(LINES-26) (i.e., * means fill to whatever is leftover). These terminals will be numbered 1 and 2, respectively. Another example: $ ./frogcomposband -mgcu -uCrusher -- -bottom -bottom *x10 This adds a bottom strip 10 rows high, and this strip will contain a single additional terminal window (numbered as Term-1) that will be as wide as the screen allows (i.e, Term-1 will be COLSx10). Finally, you can combine the -right and -bottom commands, in either order. For example: $ ./frogcomposband -mgcu -uCrusher -- -right 57x26,* -bottom *x10 Here, Term-1 and Term-2 are on the right strip, sized as 57x26 and 57x(LINES-26), while Term-3 is on the bottom strip, sized (COLS-57)x10. Term-0, the Main Terminal, is, of course, located in the top left and sized as (COLS-57)x(LINES-10). The map terminal will always use as much space as possible. Finally, the order of the -right and -bottom command is significant, as it affects both the child terminal numbering and also resolves the conflict over the overlap region in the bottom-right corner of the screen. For example, the meaning of the following should now be clear: $ ./frogcomposband -mgcu -uCrusher -- -bottom *x10 -right 57x26,* You cannot specify more than 7 child terminals. --- Windows Download the binary archive for Windows. Unzip it to any location that you will have full permissions and launch frogcomposband to play. To compile the source code in MinGW: $ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure --enable-win $ make MinGW sometimes randomly chokes on one of these steps, in which case you will need to redo that step. ---------- Basics ------------ The in-game documentation has been updated for FrogComposband 7.1.liquorice. Press '?' to activate the help system, then select your favorite topic; e.g. press 'a' twice for General Information; press 'a' followed by 'b' for an introduction to the help files and how to best read them [yes, this is that kind of manual!]; press 'a' followed by 'j' for the Newbie Guide. If you get lost in the depths of the help system, press '!' to return to the help's main page. Helpfiles are also available as HTML files for viewing outside the game in your favorite browser; for example, the General Information page is at lib/help/html/general.html and the Newbie Guide at lib/help/html/tang.html. If you are still stuck, you can usually find friendly people at angband.live who will try to help you out. --------- Commands ----------- Again, please refer to the in-game help; press '?' for help and then 'c' for Commands. Choose the section that interests you ("Command Descriptions" is a separate, lengthy file that explains all commands in detail). Or open lib/help/html/command.html or lib/help/html/commdesc.html in your browser. --- Most of this file inherited from PosChengband, updated for FrogComposband 7.1.liquorice.
