    Ah, a reddit link, mangled by the forum software: for anyone having trouble seeing it. it's
    Code:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/8s7wyr/
    and it points here: https://github.com/galaxyhaxz/devilution

    That seems to be based on various symbolics leaks though, so I don't know how long it'll be around.

    It also has some example improvements including highlighting dropped items which is cool.

    This isn't really relevant for Notaz's Diablo release, it's more of a port request really, but thanks for the information regardless.

    well, it might help notaz, e.g. by combine work of both, or substituting parts of each other - as you said info.

    I quickly tried that DevilutionX on the Pandora: it works fine, everything is there, but it doesn't add anything compared to notaz version. Worse, you loose all the finely tuned setup for the Pandora, like the fullscreen/4:3 ratio switch or the Touchscreen handling. So while it works fine, current notaz version is still better.

    yes, looking into the source code, many things are still hardcoded - yet, recent commits show that the work progresses to overcome this - at one point in future I guess abritrarily resolution and aspect ratio will be possible.
