- Isometric view.
- Mini-tiles view. This is similar to the roguelike's normal ASCII view, except that the ASCII map is replaced with tiles.
- Sound effects, based on messages from the game.
- You can now change fonts in NotEye. This also changes the resolution, so more tiles will fit if the font is larger. A nice VGA-like 32x16 font from VoI is included.
- A custom libtcod 1.5.1, so you will be able to connect to libtcod roguelikes.
- A config for Brogue. All graphic modes and sounds.
- More configuration options in config.lua.
- Objects in 3D no longer float over the ground.
- Additional optional input methods: Shift/Ctrl+Left/Right arrow for diagonal movement, and VI keys.
- Keypresses now know their "unicode" meaning, not only key symbol, which should make development easier, and more portable to different keyboard layouts.
- NotEye Menus (and webpage) now display a logo.
- Curses output. Could be useful to watch recordings of 16-color roguelikes on simple terminals, but not recommended for things like Brogue (the colors are very bad).
- Faster (SDL's blit functions are now used where they were not, much more efficient hashing of tiles, some additional hardcoded functions).
Hydra Slayer itself has not been updated, but NotEye gives new options to it (sounds, new fonts, isometric and mini-tile views).
Plans for the future include finally writing the documentation (I suppose adapting NotEye for new games might be quite hard now due to the lack of docs), and probably improvements to the FPP mode (using OpenGL's hardware acceleration instead of drawing by own calculations should be much faster, also new ways of placing the 3D objects).
Good luck to all (B)Rogues and Hydra Slayers!
