Imagine my suprise when I started the program and saw that it uses David Gervaises dungeon odyssey graphics . Here's the program, the site has some screenshots:

The thing is, that I can't find any section where credit is given to David, I could have just missed it though. I hope he has permision to use these graphics.

Anyhow, Great work on the graphics David
Hi, Henk

Thanks for the heads-up. I checked out the program and you're right, there is no mention of me in the info or readme. But in the he mentions where he got the tiles and I checked out that link. way at the bottom of the page in the files section is a link to a file called simply

Not to worry, this file comes from the TK Versions of angband and is officially freeware. I did send an e-mail to both people to have them mention my name in the credits and download file description.

Oh, and one more thing, those tiles are not exclusive to Dungeon Odyssey. In fact all the 'Tiles' in DO are from my freeware collection. The only thing 'Exclusive to Dungeon Odyssey' is all the GUI stuff.

History: Did you know that this is how Aaron found this lonely artist? He saw my RPG tiles and liked them. He then contacted me to see if he could use them in a game he was creating. (Called Venture Fourth) well, not only did I let him use the Existing tiles, but he caught me just when I was creating a whole new Isometric set (terrain and walls) and before you know it, I was neck deep in league with Aaron making a RPG game. At some point in the dev cycle I suggested he change the name to Dungeon Odyssey. He liked the name and it eventually got published through Shrapnel. You know the rest of this story.

Aaah, that was a fun walk down memory lane.

Have a great day, Cheers!
