Hydra Slayer 12.9

Due to new features of NotEye, the graphical version of Hydra Slayer has been improved. You can now control movement and switch weapons using mouse, and use the tiles also in the hex mode.

Version 12.9 also includes a minor bugfix (last help screen was not displayed correctly) and a minor change (when a monster A kills another monster B, B's HP bonus does not go directly to you; instead, it is transferred to A's health bonus, so you need to kill A to get it),

Necklace of the Eye 3.0

After more than a year, a new version of Necklace of the Eye has been released!

If you do not know what it is, go to its homepage.

If you know the older versions, this new version has the following new major features:
  • Works not only under Windows, but also under Linux.
  • Lua scripting. You now have much greater flexibility in adapting NotEye to new games, and also can use Lua scripting to change the game interface in other ways (e.g. create automatic players to do boring stuff for you) or even to create new roguelikes in NotEye itself (although I am not sure how this compares to other RL dev methods).
  • Easier to use (press Ctrl+M to get the NotEye menu).
  • Includes a nice menu from which you can choose the game you want to play (again, easier to use).
  • Basic mouse control.
  • Includes Hydra Slayer to show the capabilities. Hydra Slayer has a full tileset (both in orthogonal and hex mode) and basic mouse control (you can switch weapons and move).

Good luck to all your Roguelike characters played via NotEye!
