Craft is an adventure creator that is based on the AD&D gaming
system. It mimics the features and functionality of SSI's
Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures or 'FRUA' short. While FRUA
is DOS based, Dungeon Craft is Win32 based and currently runs
under Windows 95/98/Me/NT using DirectX 3 or higher.
Richard Turner has attempted to
recreate the functionality of the original FRUA/Gold Box game
engine as closely as possible. However, MANY improvements have
been made. Most notably:
Supports 16/24/32 bit Color
Supports BMP, PCX, TGA, PNG,
JPEG, WAV, and MIDI file types
640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768
Editable items, spells, and
monsters and more
Increased capacity for maps,
events, quests, special items, and text
Each design is self-contained,
the editor is not required to play the game
All art can be customized,
even the borders, and intro.
Area view can be configured to
auto map, display the whole map, or no map.
Text events can use scripted
conversations, Ultima style
Map walls/blockages can be
altered at runtime
New Wall-set features 5 times
as many wall slots. allows alpha-blending capabilities for
backdrops and walls as well as longer hallway
distances. Can also be layered.
Plus, new features, event
triggers, etc, can be added as desired to the source code.
