Hmm, looking up more info on dfhack, I found a bunch of people saying all you have to do is unpack it into the main DF folder and it'll start up a console window when you run DF and you're good to go.

Tried it. Didn't work. Disappointing.


I found the drfhack script! It runs!

It does nothing!

Apparently it relies on which...doesn't seem to exist and isn't in the archive I got from the git repository. Likewise for dfhack_setarch.txt.

So it's still useless and only acts as a launcher for vanilla DF.

A clumsy attempt to follow the instructions and build from source was also unsuccessful, as it turns out.
