Press a key to make @ flash briefly
|Reported by:||Tom||Owned by:|
Hi, I had a couple of requests to reduce the amount of time spent staring at the screen searching.
First, I would like to have a command to flash the player character (@). It could actually make it blink or just cycle through the available colors. The issue is that when playing with a large screen, after teleporting it can be hard to find your new location, and it can be important to find yourself before you move to see if there are any threats around. The "Highlight player with cursor" option used to help with this back in the days of DOS when the cursor was a blinking line, but now it makes very little difference.
Second, when using the "or?" commands to show all known monsters or objects, I would like to be able to pick an item from the list and highlight where that item is located on the map. When using enlightenment/clairvoyance, it is handy to be able to quickly see what objects are on the level so I can see if it is worth going and getting them, but it can be difficult to find where each object is.
These features, while not terribly important, would nonetheless make the game go just a little faster. Thanks for all your work.
