In the version of the code checked into the Repository this evening (which will eventually become either .06b or .07), Status Effects are now displayed at the bottom of the main display, with positive effects (for example, Fire Resistance and Free Action) on the left, and negative effects (in the screenshot below, Confusion) on the right:
Though should I also display the number of turns left for each one as well? e.g. Conf ? Or is that too much information? Maybe only limit it to positive effects?
