Great great backbone. Couple of issues thus far:

Transitioning between combat and the map, or just starting back onto the map from the main menu, resets the resolution and I assume other graphics settings.

The auto tile maker, the one that highlights each new tile per step, does not log each step when you're set to the fastest walking speed.

That's about it so far!

Thanks for the feedback! I'll look into those bugs.
