Getting Started with Valkyrie
« on: August 12, 2009, 06:12 »

Important-English not native for me, so i sorry for all grammatical mistakes, i hope you will  understand my posts.

Little Introduction-Hello from cold Russia,comrades!  Some weeks ago i discovered roguelike genre and it was FANTASTIC! Now i can't stop playing ADOM,Incursion and Dungeon Crawl-Stone Soup . And DoomRL-ohhh...amazing...double shotgun my favorite. "Spasibo" (Big Thanks) to Creator of such nice game.

Main part -So i get one important thing-many Roguelikes writen on FreePascal + Lazarus with some optionaly libraries such is Valkyrie.
I hope  i will get some time to start to develop my own Roguelike (or my university study blow my head up).
I know what developing-is very hard path. But i want to upgrade my skills in programming( now i can only solve maths tasks,work with arrays,work with const,variables in Pascal)

First Question: I need worked chain of FPC&Lazarus. I cant make it work together. help me please (my system is winXP x32)
Second: How use libraries(Valkyrie) in FP? i just never collided with what (such awful world "collide" but i forget similar)
Third: Where i can get "getting started" tutorials for roguelikes development on FP?(i already read all on RogueBasin)
And the last one: where i can get FP tutorials?(index of commands,examples)

P.S. My target - Not Nethack Killer#666, just understand a craft, improving programming skills, having fan at last (pain in *ss as alternative).
Thank you for yours pation.

Note: my local time is 22.03 when my post last modified in 12.04, so don't be shocked if my posts will appeard in deep night.

Zdorovo, tovarisch!

PM me your contacts, either Skype, GoogleTalk or ICQ, and I can arm-walk you through all the basics.

Anywya, I recommend you using the following Lazarus:

ftp://ftp.hu.freepascal.org/pub/lazarus/Lazarus-0.9.26.3-21184-fpc-2.2.4-20090812-win32.exe

I will package latest SVN Valkyrie for you tomorrow.
