Hrm. Oddly, I can't find a way to do this. Setting

restart_after_game = true

Will return you to the main menu when you quit, die, or escape, but not when you save.

While on this topic, does anyone know why sometimes the game will exit after going through the morgue after dying? Usually it goes to the menu, but once in a while it'll just exit the game.

Yeah, there isn't any and I find it annoying too. Maybe shift+S could prompt:

  Code:
Save the game and (E)xit or go back to the main (M)enu?


y could still work for exit.

Re: what is the shortcut back to main menu?

that would be nice, but wouldn't respecting restart_after_game be better?

You mean always? I don't think that would be good. How about ctrl+S always "save and exit", and shit+S prompts, and then either exit or go back to the main menu depending on restart_after_game.

sounds great to me, for switching characters (especially if I have a visiting crawler playing).

While we're at it, could something be done about the arena? It's almost unusable in local console because every time a round finishes, it closes.

With restart_after_game, it goes back to the main menu. Were you expecting something else?

Evidently I should do more thorough testing in situations like this before I post. Sorry about that.

Using a batch file with a menu to run Crawl offers a workaround for these issues.

Re: what is the shortcut back to main menu?

Can I somehow go back to main menu from specie/class screen? Oddly Esc key kicks me out of the game completely.
Or can change the name AFTER I pick specie/class? I keep forgetting about it, but I like to have constant names for certain chars.

Re: what is the shortcut back to main menu?

Esc shouldn't exit from the species or background menus. It should return you to the main menu. Maybe one of the easy exit options is doing that?

If you leave the name field empty you'll be prompted for one after selecting your character combination.
