Version 6.3 is here!!!

Version 6.3 is not quite as major a change as the last couple of versions, but with this version it is again possible to compile the game in graphics mode. Unlike prior graphic version of Unicorn, which were limited to a 640x480 window, 6.3 allows you to define how large a window to create for playing the game. The graphics mode works reasonably well in Linux/Unix as well as on Windows running on top of Cygwin/X. I did put some code into the native Windows version for graphics, but since I am not a Windows programmer, there are a number of issues, as such I do not recommend the Widows native graphic version be played seriously. If somebody wants to make the effort to get it working better, I would gladly add you to the list of credits.

I have also changed how F Keys work. It is now possible use the F keys for other than just spells. Using a config option, F keys can now be used to select weapons from the gear manager, whole gear sets from the gear manager, spells, and a new macro capability. By default the unshifted F keys select spells as they have in all prior versions. Shifted F keys store your current weapons into the gear manager. Control F keys will execute macros defined in the config file. and Alt F keys will load weapons from the gear manager. Note that not all terminals/systems can generate the Ctrl/Alt/Shift combinations of function keys, so your milage may vary.
