Wow. These are awesome.
I noticed a couple peculiarities. Ironband and quickband do not have the yellow torch light even though the feature is turned on.
Ironband and hellband don't recognize the arrow keys when pressed. Just the numberpad.
None of the recognize the enter key on the numpad.
When trying to fire a projectile in quickband, it doesn't let you just hit the letter of the iutem. It only works if you hit the fire key, then the "/" then the letter of the item. It doesn't let you skip openiong the inventory if you already know what letter the item you want to throw is assigned to.
I can't remember if these things were the same in the other version of if they just popped up in your re-compile. Haven't had time to check yet. Probably will tonight though.
I checked out gumband since you mentioned it. It seems pretty cool so far. I definitely like the concept behind it. If it already has a dos exe, what would the benefit be of re-compiling it? Some of the features of the newer engine would be nice like being able to automatically open doors.
Think you might do a few more?
Looks like Antoine(the guy who made ironband and quickband) has done another one that looks interesting called minimal. http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=5226
The download is on the bottom of the quickband page. Don't know if it's worth re-compiling just yet though since it is in beta and from the forum posts, it looks like a new version may pop up somewhat soon.
NPP Angband seems like a good one. Seems interesting to me anyways.
Steamband and Tiny Angband are also kinda cool.
Anyways, thanks again Ancient. Very cool of you. It was nice running through hellband a little bit last night again. The windows versions are just a big hinderance for me when it comes to trying to play angband and it's variants. I promise I won't make anymore requests after the above mentioned ones
