The first time you run Adonthell, a configuration file is created
inside the wastesedge-0.3.3 directory. Edit it to customise the game
to your convenience.
The available options and what they do are:
Whether Adonthell should run fullscreen or in windowed mode
0 = Windowed mode, 1 = Fullscreen mode
Due to a bug in SDL, you'll have to switch manually to 640x480 before
starting Adonthell in Fullscreen mode.
Whether resolution should be scaled to 640x480 or not
0 = disable, 1 = enable
You should leave that set to 1 on BeOS.
- Language [locale]
Specifies which language to use. As long as this option is unset,
the language is determined by one of the following environment
variables: LANG, LC_ALL or LC_MESSAGES. Once the option is set,
it overrides any environment variable. For a listing of valid
locale strings, run 'locale -a'.
Of course, the game you run has to provide the translation you
chose here, otherwise you'll get the default (i.e. English) text.
Note that NLS support isn't in the BeOS version. This option is
Whether the last saved game should be automatically continued at
startup. Only works if at least one saved game exists.
0 = disable, 1 = enable
Whether sound should be mono or stereo
0 = Mono, 1 = Stereo
Whether audio output should be 8 or 16 bit
0 = 8 bit, 1 = 16 bit
0 = 11025 Hz, 1 = 22050 Hz, 2 = 44100 Hz
The mixer setting, 0 - 100 %
(Note that a value of 0 will turn audio completely off)
Okay, now you're ready to launch the program. If you have chosen to
install the game, you can start it via the Desktop and Application
menu shortcuts. Otherwise, you'll have to do it via Terminal. Type:

installed games you can play, type:

The main purpose of this release is to attract new programmers,
artists and writers in order to shorten the time until the next
version. So if you have experience in C++ (and optionally Python),
or if you are good at computer graphics or writing we would like to
hear from you. Please have a look at our development site
for further details.
Adonthell - Waste's Edge -, or v0.3 for short is no complete RPG.
As the v0.3 implies, the engine is far from being finished, although
it should be free of severe bugs. Missing features include combat,
items and magic. But you can interact with NPC's and the game world,
and the internals enable us to create a basic plot, so v0.3 is actually
