Can Dwarf Fortress be run in console mode?

I don’t want to start up an X server at all, I just want to play on a text console. Is this possible?


Yes. You need to change the print mode to TEXT

Linux/OS X users may also use PRINT_MODE:TEXT for primitive ncurses output.


This is located in the ./df/data/init/init.txt file.
