Let's wait for Z to show up to see if he can work those RFEs out

Just added a dozen or so more Angband variant pages to Roguebasin.  ;D

I like the symbiosis that is being created between both projects :P

Slash, I think you have not updated the JavaScript, there were two fixes there (one regarding spurious [ ] in links or something like that, and the another one is the additional button "Include Angband variants").

I can remove the useless genre and status fields, and I can include "Not yet" for talkie-talkies, if you want. Any other default values I should include? (I was thinking about giving some default values to all Angband variants, for example, that they are written in C... what should it be?)

I guess I should take the stylized HTML file and update it instead of my simple one, so we don't double the work with Slash.

Not all Angband variants are written in C.  A few(?) are written in C++ and at least one is written in Lisp. (!)

I think I have fixed it.

I am using the following files, based on the latest distro you sent me:

http://roguetemple.com/irldb/maketab.cpp
http://roguetemple.com/irldb/irldb.css
http://roguetemple.com/irldb/update2-roguetemple.pl
http://roguetemple.com/irldb/irl-foot-roguetemple.txt
http://roguetemple.com/irldb/irl-header-roguetemple.txt

The problem still happens with Wayfarer and Torchlit games, requiring me to manually edit the generated file.

Yes, and maybe some others are partially written in Lua (ToME is, but it does not use Angband variant template IIRC) It would be possible to manually update the language for the few which are not in C, or to give the language parameter to the template.

I mooted adding the language parameter to the Angband templates but got no reply.

The problem is that there are 83 Angband variants detailed in RogueBasin (see the recently updated List of Angband Variants).  If, say, four of those have something other than 'C' it doesn't really pay off compared to the 79 that are standard 'C'.  Maybe there should be a template to add just programming language to those few affected.

Zaiband, however, uses the standard game-alpha template and adds the {{angbandvariant}} tag.  That's another possible approach.

I wouldn't suggest manually fixing just the IRLDB as its strength is that it is (fairly) directly linked to RogueBasin content.

Is IRLD broken? Seems unresponsive for me, can't find anything, checkboxes for category and fields are missing. Tested on Maxthone 5 beta, Chrome 53, Firefox 48, Microsoft Edge / Internet Explorer.

6 months later, still broken. I guess it's dead.

It's working well for me this time. Some time ago Slash fixed IRDB unrensponsiveness.

What issue are you having?
