T-Engine4 / ToME4 beta18 aka "V" unleashed!

As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta18 ! See

This is a "quick" release to fix some bad stuff in b17 and introduce a few nice things. Notably the first version of player housing!


Release highlights:

  • Fixes crash & bugs
  • Fixes unlocks & achievements update on the server
  • Adds player "house"

Expanded changelist:

  • Unlocks, achievements, .. should correctly update again
  • Bad game version detection will switch to a "development" profile automatically
  • Added the -P"profname" command line switch to switch to a "profname" profile (to prevent uploading bad data)
  • When targetting the map will scroll to follow the target cursor
  • Fix the lost merchant quest
  • Fixed the Blighted Ruins
  • "Normal mode" did not provide all the lifes it should
  • Fix Onslaught
  • Fix War Hound
  • Sandworm Burrowers are not very angry creatures now
  • The Golem can not decide he hates his Alchemist
  • Most level change terrains (stairs, ...) should have a tile now, except the worldmap
  • Smooth movement can now also be used to do a "motion blur", this is used for Rush and Disengage (and Lightning Speed on a smalelr scale)
  • Strength tooltip does correctly state that it also increases to hit chance
  • Going up from the slime tunnels will correctly place the player back in Grushnak Pride
  • Removed the Pyromancer, Cryomancer, Geomancer and Tempest classes; instead unlocking them will grant all new Archmages access to the corresponding trees (which are bumped to level 10 trees)
  • Players can now acquire a "house". More features will be added to it later on
  • The orbs in the ruined dungeon will de-activate once the level is completed
  • The Three Edged Sword now has a correct encumberance value

Last 16 Character

Beta 17 is out, but I have a level 17 halfling slinger still alive and kicking. I am a bit curious. I have accepted the quest "Storming the City", but I can't find the Apprentice Mage. Is there anything special I need to do to make him appear?

David Gervais tiles mod v 1.1 for Tome4 Beta17

Here is a mod to include some tiles from David Gervais into Tome4 main module. The mod is far from complete, but right now most of the objects are done, and some monsters too.

Most of the tiles come from the work of David Gervais, under the Creative Commons licence CC-BY 3.0. I have hacked some of them to follow Tome4 universe; those new tiles are of course licenced under the same CC-BY.

In some few cases, I have added tiles from other sources. In each folder containing tiles, there is a "licence.txt" file describing what belongs to who.

Material decisions

I have made some decisions regarding the colors of the different materials. The idea is to decide at a glance what is the material of the object. I hope my choices follow this!


- iron: rusted red
- steel: base tile
- dwarven steel: darken gray
- stralite: golden
- voratun: blueish from base tile


- rough leather: light brown
- cured leather: brown
- hardened leather: dark brown
- reinforced leather: dark brown
- drakeskin leather: green


- elm: brown
- ash: gray
- yew: dark gray
- elven-wood: green
- dragonbone: dirty white


Here is the progress status:


90% done (some gems missing, some artifacts and maybe whips)


5% (ants, bears and wolves are done)


0% (not started)


0% (not started)


You can download this mod at:


Unzip the file and extract the "data" folder to your "t-engine4-windows-1.0.0beta17\game\modules\tome" folder.

Beware that some regular files will be deleted and replaced. If you want to come back to the previous state of Tome4 beta17, install it again in the same directory.

Started Using GDB on the backend.

Not too complicated to use though in writing the .bat file (its been 20 years or so since I last bothered with .bats) I think I got one of the path's wrong because I got a message to that effect from the command shell though it does not interfere with the running of the program.

The error I am hoping to reproduce seems somewhat random so it might not come up at all. I am trying to get it to crash again on entering the name of a new character. So far it has happened twice now but no indication of why in the stdout.txt file and nothing at all in stderr.txt.

Stuck waiting for a fix...

Blah my dwarf Wyrmic finally hit level 10 and then got into the unknown tunnels quest and is now stuck. Seeing as how I had to lose about 20 previous characters to get one to level 10 in normal mode this is frustrating indeed. Hopefully the saves will be usable in this next version.

T-Engine4 / ToME4 beta17 aka "Wintertide" unleashed!

As promised here comes T-Engine4 and ToME4 beta17 ! See

  • Eruan and the Charred Scar can scale higher
  • Can not avoid one of the possible outcomes of the endgame
  • The lost merchant can not block people in corridors
  • takes a new first parameter: either nil or a special title to display. *WARNING* modules need to update
  • The game will now display the current number of unlocked birth options and the max during character creation
  • Added Entity:setMoveAnim(oldx, oldy, speed) method to make entities move around the map with smooth movements. This is not used by default, modules can choose to use it or not
  • A new option (in the game options) is available to change/disable the "smooth movement" effect
  • Online charsheets now store some more flags that will later allow the website to be used to search for characters


Have fun and don't forget to help ToME by with donations!

ToME 4 Streaming Guide

I just uploaded a guide to the wiki for streaming ToME 4 on Ustream using freeware tools.

^Check it out here.

who carries whom?

sometimes i try to imagine what my character looks like. which involves amusing things.

so what the monsters see is a huge tree trunk with a midge of the non-swarming kind attached to it. the midge being gwydion the halfling arcane blade...

Donate to keep ToME4 alive

Hi my fellow players!

I have setup a donation page on to let you donate astronomical, or not, amounts of money to ToME and his creator - myself ;)

ToME/TE4 will always be a free open source game, but it would not bother me in the slightest if it could help me feed my family. If there are enough donations this could augment the amount of time I have to spend on ToME/TE4, for your own enjoyment!
Lastly if there is enough donations I also intend to redistribute some of it to the talented people that made the musics and the gfx (even though they did not ask for any, it would be kind IMO; and could maybe speed up the gfx drawing ;> ).

If you can not or do not want to donate but still enjoy the game, remember that a kind word on the forums is always appreciated too, keeps the morale up!

Please visit: if you are interested in helping ToME go forward.

Thank you all
