A tag was posted that put this in the public domain, but it was deleted anyway. Ignorance is bliss. Enjoy.

Rogue Screenshot Question[edit]

Why did you create it in a widecreen format? Terminals of the 80s would have been 4:3 format. Thanks. ---- Theaveng (talk) 22:02, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I did not take a screen shot. I made an artists rendering in TheDraw in ascii, as an interpretation of what the screen would look like. As such, the font of terminal, rendered it in what ever aspect ratio it creates a 25x80 ascii screen. In the 80s, the IBM Monochrome screen's aspect would vary to beat hell. It would sometimes have a 3/4" border on the left and the right, or a 1" border on the top and bottom... so the widescreen format deepened more on the font, then on the actual display.

My suggested leap-year calendar reform[edit]

My leap-year rules:

  1. If the year is divisible by 4, it is a leap year...
  2. but if it is also divisible by 100, it is not a leap year...
  3. but if it is also divisible by 400, it is a leap year...
  4. but if it is also divisible by 4000, it is not a leap year...
  5. but if it leaves a remainder of 200 or 600 when divided by 900, it is a leap year.

What I'd like to know is, how accurate is this? --116.14.26.124 (talk) 05:41, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

This would increase the accuracy from the Gregorian Calendar from 8000 years to 85,000 years. read the article, and the simple calculation is based upon error analysis. The mean length of a sidereal year is 365.2422 days. The Julian calendar is based upon a year of 365.25 days. Hence the arror collected often enough for the precessioon of easter, which lead to Gregorian reform. The proposal McCarthy and Babcock in the year 4000, the calendar will fall behind by at least 0.8, but less than 1.1 days. In the year 12,000 the calendar would fall behind at least 8, but less than 12 day

build on your strengths[edit]

Rogue screen shots[edit]

Moved from User talk:czar

"Copyright needs clarification. Is this a screenshot of Rogue or not? And why would it not be released under the same license as Rogue? If it is a manual recreation in the style of Rogue, we need more information on what has been changed and why it still has the fidelity to illustrate Rogue or just roguelike gameplay."

There was a question of copyright, which I provided a screen shot that both showed it had a PD version, and the history which documented there was a PD version, However this was not enough to stop someone trolling me regarding proof. Even an email from the author was insufficent, where as the proof for much more insignificant peices of software.

It is not a screen shot, but almost an exact representation, after years of experence and use, of what a typical screen would look like. The screen has a random dungeon, so ever screen is diffrent. What has been changed is only the source. The souce is not a screen shot, but an exact representation that would be indistingusihable from a real shot. It still has the fidelity to illustrated Rogue. Actual game play needs animation, and some tips on how you play, which I believe that tips are not welcome.

but this is a few years, after the file is long gone. It seems that whom ever yells the longest, and is willing to fight for disinformation will somehow have their version of history, prevail, even though the person who wanted it deleted, just wanted to excorcise the power, not contribute to history. So Screw history. best of luck with accuracry. It will not go well.

Thanks for your concern, but the battle was lost long ago. Fail wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Artoftransformation (talkcontribs) 23:14, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

Is there is a version of the software in the public domain? And if so, can you take a screenshot of it? czar 23:42, 22 April 2018 (UTC)

From the talk page: "So, despite the link to at least 28 versions, and the source code, after inspecting the Epyx code, There still is a version, that I have, that they dont have, that says Public Domain, does not appear to have the copy protection disabled, and does not appear to have a hacked string for the splash screen, that I maintain is The Public Domain version. The splashscreen is significant because it is the only proof that the game has a public domain version, that we can take screen shots. Because this was in doubt, I had to hand render all the screen shots in TheDraw. The removal of this proof puts the legitamacy of the other shot from the IBM PC in doubt. ( In fact, since the proof of its legitmacy is gone, It needs to be removed also. ). "

Courtesy link: Talk:Rogue (video game)#rm image that bears no significant relation to article text (hacked DOS version title screen
The task is to ascertain whether the original is available under a free license. The game's article text says the BSD version was released under a BSD license (I haven't compared the terms to see if there is any issue of that license version's license compatibility with Wikipedia). If the DOS version is identical to the original, and the original is not available under a free license, the derivative would be a copyright infringement (and the license of the infringing version wouldn't matter). Similarly, an image drawn based on the game's generative rendering would have to ensure that it didn't infringe on the original author's rights. So, yes, trying to help: Is the original work available under a Wikipedia-compatible license, and if so, let's screenshot it and I could help restore your other images. czar 02:06, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
