    I gave it a try and it runs really well, but the music seems to be in mono? Is that a known issue? The music is definitely in stereo on an Amiga.

    First off, I'm really enjoying the game. Kudos to the guys who ported it. I'm enjoying the pseudo-tactical-blobber battle system and the questing is open-ended enough to make me use my brain a little.

    On the note of the battle system, has anyone encountered a bug where your characters seemingly randomly stop being able to move mid-battle? When attempting to move any character, and message pops up saying something like "There is no space that your character can move to" even when 7 of 8 adjacent tiles are available. And it seems to affect every character.

    I've mostly (perhaps exclusively) encountered this against bandits, and I am pretty early in the game, so I'm not sure whether this is a bug or a feature that I don't currently understand. Regardless, when it strikes, I don't seem to have any negative conditions on the characters, and the enemies seem to stop moving as well. Given my party's lack of ranged options, the bandits and I basically just chill indefinitely until I give up and reload.

    Well, there are few bugs (sometimes game is not responding for keyboard nor RMB, but after a minute or two it works ok, and had some crashes when got too many items/weight or tried to put arrows to left hand while using 2h weapon).

    What you are describing - well, remember that your characters can't move further than the 2nd row of the battlefield and CAN'T pass other characters nor spaces where another character is going to move, so maybe this is a problem. Other than that I have never seemed a movement bug in this game.

    Thanks for the input, really helped me figure out what might be going wrong.

    For those curious, here's my best guess at the issue: I believe Krivol is correct in that you are not intended to be able to "move further than the 2nd row of the battlefield", supported by the fact that selecting "move" will only highlight squares in the first two rows as possibilities. However, at least in the version I downloaded from github, there doesn't seem to be anything preventing you from clicking on and moving into adjacent squares in the 3rd+ rows that are not highlighted, at least until code-karma catches up to you and prevents all further movement.

    While the model I've outlined above could certainly be wrong, I haven't had any more issues since I've restricted my movements to the highlighted first two rows, and advanced to subsequent rows using the "advance" command.

    Thanks again for the help.

    On a game design note, I haven't quite made up my mind whether I find the "free movement around the grid" approach I'd been incorrectly using or the intended "clear the entire row before advancing" ruleset to be more tactically interesting. Regardless, I haven't seen the latter system before, and am at least currently enjoying it as a novel little twist.

    WOW Thanks for this. I didn't know that this even existed. I always was unsuccessful to run DM on emulators. Now i'm very happy!!!

    If anyone does English let’s play please share. I’d check it out, I have played Albion in the past and really enjoyed it (I think the only thing stopped me from finishing it was a bug near the end).

    I found a bug (?) - sometimes I can't put stuff into a chest (even if it's empty), sell items nor drop item - it looks like icon "4" (look at numeric keys) is bugged or something.

    I'm just amazed that, in Linux, the Ambermoon rewrite runs perfectly after a single click. I'm not used to that :)

    So is this game genuinely good or is this just nostalgia bait for boomers?

    It's a very good game, and I have a lot of arguments to say that.

    But what is the value of my opinion or that of others in this regard? I mean, it's a free game, of which you can read the features and see screenshots. Install it and give it a try, it won't take you more than 10 minutes to test it a bit.

    I still have a problem with screen flickering in fullscreen with all builds including the latest (1.3?) so I'd like to make a feature request to the developer for a native borderless window mode in any upcoming versions. In the meantime, Borderless Gaming does a great job allowing me to play this game in "fullscreen" with no flickering but I always have to run the program first and keep it running before opening up Ambermoon.net; a pain.

    I feel like I'm an idiot, but I cannot find how to run the .net file on Linux. Anybody could provide instructions?

    Man... This is effort well spent.

    How about finishing up a few unfinished shareware games from the 90s next?

    Extract the .gz

    Open the terminal in the folder with the extracted stuff

    in the terminal, enter ./Ambermoon.net (with the dot and the slash and the capital 'A') and press ENTER

    That's all it takes for me using the newest Ubuntu.

    It does work. Thanks a lot. Next time I'll remember how to launch an executable via the command line alone...

    1.4 doesn't run for me on Win10. It opens the window for a fracture of a second and closes immediately. All earlier versions worked flawlessly. Strange.
