I lost them when my old site expired and I migrated to Linux. Fear not, though! My skills have improved since so this time you may actually get fully working arrow keys. This might turn out to be for the better in the end. Starting with Angband 4.0.3.

That sucks they got lost. I wanted to check out steamband, gumband,  and hellband again. I might have them on a flash drive somewhere if I can track down where I put them all. I will try to find the older versions and get them back up to preserve them.

Right on. That would be cool if you could do the same for angband 4.0.3.  Might be cool if you could get cthangband 5.0.0 going too  :P  it doesnt seem to work on win xp unfortunately. looks cool.

Happy thanksgiving Ancient.

Gumband still survives in its original, console state here:
http://angband.oook.cz/variants.php?variant=gumband

Angband 4.0.3 for console:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7z947nnn0nigma3/angband-4.0.3_console.7z?dl=0

Next on list: Hellband.

Why cthangband 5.0.0 does not work on Win XP? Does the author know?

Awesome. Thanks Ancient.

Thanks for the gumband link. Happen to know where I can find the ibm/console version of Sangband too? the link listed here:  http://angband.oook.cz/variants.php?variant=sangband  seems to be dead and can't find it elsewhere.

Cthangband 5.0.0 doesn't seem to want to work work cause it says that it's not a valid win32 application. not sure why it came out this way. I guess it just won't work with 32 bit xp. I saw on the angband forums that someone else mentioned it in the release thread but the dev never replied.

*edit. Was giving angband a whirl and when I try to save or save and quit, it says "saving game...failed!"

Apologies for the savefile fail. You may create three directories under lib named 'save' 'scores' and 'info' or download the package again.

For SAngband please look here: http://code.google.com/p/skills-angband/

Thanks.

That page for sanfgband does.t seem to point to the ibm version though. just windows.

I know that it is a nice full screen kinda console version though. it still has the fixed windows. wanted to check out the ibm version to see if it just did everything through a single full screen instead of taking up the bottom half for tiny windows.

Hellband compiles but does not have the menu bar with "File" and is thereby unplayable. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. Perhaps newer compiler is to blame or the fact Windows box lent to me is Vista instead of XP unlike previous time. So, no console build for Hellband I am afraid. :-(

As compensation here is CthAngband. Please tell me whether it works for you!

Next week: SAngband 1.0.2, unless you have better target.

Cthangband works great. Thanks Ancient.

Shame about Hellband. I wonder why it won't work this time. I do believe you were able to do it before. I don't think it changed versions either. I don't recall the last version you compiled needing a menu bar and worked fine. I just started in fullscreen every time and started a new game by keypress. It just ran like an older dos version.

Thanks for the description, that refreshed my hopes. I made it closer today. Hellband compiles in console mode without expecting some menus but one has to pass -n parameter to get new game. Not what it is supposed to do, I think.

Here is SAngband.

Next: Steamband. (or Hellband, if I manage to figure it out)

I didn't get around to saying thanks last time and letting you know that Sangband seems to work great so far.  I really appreciate you taking time to make versions like these for people like me which are probably the small majority who actually prefer to play bands this way.
