I saw this group in my list of subscribed newsgroups and started wondering if
anybody still checks this group.

LOL, imagine that. I haven't seen a post here in two years, and now
here you are from the D2 group. Didn't know you were into Moria, too.

I played it a lot back in the day, and I occasionally load it up in dosbox and
have some fun running around.

If you like Moria, you should try Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup at
crawl.akrasiac.org

Total addiction, esp the tiles version. Fairly elegant game mechanics
for a turn-based game. Available local or online, console or graphical.
Under current and active development. 0.15 is the latest stable version.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to. :)

Eek, sorry I kind of got lost in a whole lot of other stuff.

I'm not sure if anyone remembers but I have done a port of the original 5.01 Moria to FPC/Delphi for compilation on modern platforms (Mac, Linux/Unix, Windows etc, etc).

I will make another thread with more details.

Checking it now because I just loaded UMoria into DOSBox to give it a spin. It's the first DOS game I managed to get working on my Chromebook - I am very much a noob when it comes to these emulators.

So far so good except for one little hiccup: with the default Rogue keybindings I can't use ctrl+h to tunnel left. (Tunneling in any other direction works fine.) Got any idea how to fix this?
