Troll Slayer

I was looking for some small side project to relax between coding sessions of Kaduria. I found Troll Slayer. It was promising (and I guess still is) 7DRL with nice tiles. However the source code is quite difficult to work with. It's taken from some previous project so there are lots of commented out code. Not to mention that the code is pretty messy. I was almost close to abandon the project, but looks like it's something to improve during a long period of time...

At the moment I'm writing a BMP importer for Brick Atelier so I can load Troll Slayer's tiles and start to make them better. It's not a simple task however, because I'm re-writing the dialog class for more consistent style (like all dialogs should have at least Ok button) and also adding a support for viewing the BMP image and also selecting tile areas from it to import.

Meanwhile the development of both Teemu and Kaduria are stopped for a while I guess. Well, at least I'm doing something.
