Having the odd issue of starting Dwarf Fortress through the launcher with Phoebus installed, seeing the main menu in Phoebus' style, then everything getting forcibly reset back to ascii after several seconds of loading.
That's what TWBT does - the map will use Phoebus characters once it's loaded. Disabling TWBT in the launcher should make everything use Phoebus tiles.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

Ah, I see then. I don't recall having that issue in the past, but I think I had installed in manually then. Thanks.

Is there a way to have DF start with the top left corner of the window at the top left most corner of the monitor display?  I see how to change the size of the window, but not its starting position.

How can I get the pack to stop opening a web browser every time I launch the game?  It's annoying as all get out.

Love the pack otherwise though. Always helpful whenever I decide to dip my toes back into DF. Thanks!

What browser / url does it open for you?  I've never had that happen.

The only thing i can think of that opens a browser window is Legends Browser, but there might be others. You might want to make sure it is not highlighted in the "Utilities" tab of the PyLNP launcher, and if that doesn't fix it, unselect all the options in that tab and try again.

Never even looked at the page till you asked. I would just closed it, lol.

It actually opened up my local computer directories, of all things.

It was the Legends Browser plugin doing it. Seems an odd thing for it to do.

Thanks guys.

Legends Browser is a web-based tool that reads files from your local disk, so that sounds about right. Probably not something you'd need every time you start DF, though - maybe it got selected accidentally.

Ah, so you select a log file or something similar for it to scan probably.  Makes sense.

New question, know why stonesense would cause the game to crash whenever a fortress map opens up?  Playing without it just now which is fine, but I am curious to see how far it's come since the last time I played. I believe it was still fairly early in it's development way back then.

It's broken in the current official DFhack release, but fixed for the next one, which I'm told is "soon".

If you want a working Stonesense and to help with texting, you can find more information in the DFhack thread.

I'll just wait for it to come out. Unless it's really changed a lot, highly possible considering the length of time since I last played and this communities dedication to such things, I wouldn't use it while playing anyway. 

Thanks though. It's good to know I shouldn't waste anymore time trying to figure it out.

Might want to add a note about that on the DFHack available hacks tab though. So people are aware not to worry about why it isn't working for them.

If we're lucky, a new DFHack version will be ready before a new pack version, so that won't be necessary. :) (That's assuming the Stonesense fixes work, of course.) I don't want to commit to anything firm just yet, but it'll probably be ready this weekend.

I'm not sure Stonesense has changed for a while, but you should take a look at Armok Vision (but it's also broken in current, fixed for next.)
