Hi Kroah,

do you think it would be possible for you to release the source code of your Gateway to Abshai map viewer? I'm very interested in the map generation code (generate pseudo random maps from a seed).

Thank you and best regards Bo

Of course.
I will update the website with the source code and post here when it's ready.

Hi,

I re-implemented the map generation algorithm in Java (based on seeds but with other room results, cause the room algorithm was hard to understand). Now I'm trying to populate the dungeon map with the sprites, but I only have the static ones actually.

Is there any chance to extract the "animated" sprites from the original game (or do I have to capture them from the running app)?

Regards Bo

I don't have a tool to extract the sprites, but here is a PNG with the animated sprites :

If you want the animated gif, you can grab them from the site.

Thank you very much,

i replaced them with the placeholders I used so far. I have added a screenshot about the current progress of the remake in JavaFX (only for practice about the graphic capabilies of JavaFX, not sure whether it will be mature enough to go live)

Regards Bo

Nice job. Looking forward your work.

Here are the templates used for each monster type (the sprites are colored on the fly in game).
#4 is for invisible monster.
