You can find a lot of people playing frogcompos in Angband forums (the game developer himself included). Search for "angband forums" (I'm not allowed to post external links).

There you will find tips and experiences from other players. Frogcomposband is currently one of the most active *bands in the community.

Another option is the "" chat (search for "angband live"). There are very experienced players 24hours there, chatting about their ongoing runs, and very opened to sharing their knowledge with new players.

That said, "frogcomposband" is a wonderful game. One of my favorite bands.

Hey, pat: great job. Congratulations and thank you very very much for sharing your work. Go ahead with the project! Giving is receiving. Now: if came the day when wizards of the Toast can patent (and patents) Goblins, to me at least, the answer is clear: fuck them wizards of the Toast!

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Re: Zorbus

No log or error message, but, yes: I've noticed that alt+tabbing freezes some programs running under wine in fullscreen mode (without virtual desktop), but usually not with Zorbus. Anyway, isn't a problem or bug of Zorbus executable. I wondered only if the game has some kind of automatic backup. However, I prefer a "perma-crash-dead" than do manual backups and end up giving in to the temptation of the save-scummin XD

Thanks for your answer!

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Re: Zorbus

Oh no; I was playing the 30 release, and my best run so far (Human lv.10), when I do alt+tab (I'm running Zorbus in Ubuntu with Wine) to look some tips in the leaderboard information, and for first time the game crashed. When I reload the game, it seems my savegame is gone. In 'save' forlder there are only 'avatars.zav' and 'characters.zav' files.

I guess this means I've lost the game, no? Or is there some way to get it back?

Thanks in advance

p.d.: and by the way: after more than 10 years playing traditional roguelikes (nethack, crawl, adom, brogue, etc.), I can say that zorbus is by far my favorite roguelike (except Cataclysm DDA, which I do not consider it a "traditional" ;). A great example of well done game. Thanks you!
