    Default Dwarf Fortress: One of the best games ever?

    I saw someone mention this in our best games of all time thread a while back. And even though its ascii, its one of the deepest and best games I've ever played. Its got a huge learning curve, but definately worth it.

    Looks like a roguelike, is it something like that? I used to play ADOM and ZAngband, two ASCII roguelikes.

    I have no idea what i'm doing lol, i just started the game up and i see some faces moving around and some icons changing. I browsed through the commands and tried to tell them to do stuff but i failed. Is there an idiot friendly guide?

    I tried out this tileset and recognized some flaws. For example. the dot [.] and also the [O] and the [+] seem to be exchanged even in normal text. Does this have something to do with my computron (then I'd like to fix it) or is it just that way? (Then I'll just live with it)

    Thanks in advance

    This happens with me aswell. but I can live with it since it so greatly improves gfx of the game.
    I could not handle the ASCII, I had to use the tileset version.

    Awesome game, that's for sure - BUT WHY CAN'T I BUILD DOORS FROM DOLOMITE?!

    I'm getting irritated that it says I can't use non-economic stones - even when I change the dolomite settings from the Stones submenu under your Status page.
