What is the help button or the keybindings please?
« on: December 13, 2017, 22:31 »

I have just started playing this (although I downloaded it about a year ago I am working on programming MY slashem)

I could get a few things by just trying out random letters:
c = character info
g = get stuff from floor
z = zap if you have s = equipped the staff (for sorcerer)
l = look
and moving into NPC's enters chat/buy/fix/heal mode
moving into monsters hits them (like a normal roguelike)
but ? does not equal help

is there a help button or a list of keybindings?

I tried edit but it didn't work...

So I am stuck in some sort of library.

I have an empty bookcase (got and read book of firebolt)

and an open book.

How do I read the open book?

Check the "manual.txt" and "keybindings.lua" file in the same folder that contains the executable. All the info should be there.

Cool!  Good to see another DiabloRL player!  :D

is there a help button...

Yes, if you push the Escape key in game, there's a menu that includes a help section.

...or a list of keybindings?

The help menu includes that and there's a file called keybindings.lua in the game folder that you can edit if you want to change them.

Some other useful things you can do:  Q to bring up your belt (where you store extra potions/scrolls) and once that's brought up, you can push I to transfer items from your belt to your inventory, D to drop them, or Enter to use them.  Similarly, when you bring up your inventory, you can use Q to transfer scrolls/potions to your belt or D to drop them.  Pushing Tab while in inventory also lets you cycle through your worn items in case you want to take them off.  (These are the default keys, of course; I'm sure you can change them)

So I am stuck in some sort of library.

I have an empty bookcase (got and read book of firebolt)

and an open book.

How do I read the open book?

I'm not quite sure what you mean here; you can read spellbooks you pick up by selecting them in your inventory, but it sounds like you already did that.  What do you mean by "open book?"  I mean sometimes, you encounter yellow books that provide a bit of extra background story when you walk into them, but I suspect that's not what you're talking about here.  I think I need a bit more information.

I think it might be something like that (yellow books that provide a bit of extra background story) but walking into it doesn't do anything. it just says open book.

attached save file is right where the open book is

Okay, I just loaded the game.  That "open book" is nothing; Just ignore it.  If it was any other colour, there might be something there, but the grey ones are just decoration.  Just move on and continue exploring; it looks like there are plenty of ways to go.
