Poschengband 5 vs Win Defender
Windows Defender is recognizing Poschengband 5 as malware.

How to fix that issue? Excluding in the Win Defender setting does not work. it will not accept the exclude.

Recompile it with gcc. I have the necessary changes if you want them. (Someone else did a clean compile with Visual Studio that you can download.)

Where can I grab the recompiled version?

Interesting Poschengband 5 does not even work with WINE on Linux.

Why would you want to launch it with wine when you can just use the native linux binary? :confused:

Linux binaries of PosChengband 5.x have to be compiled from scratch. Chris doesn't pre-compile Linux versions. :/

It's almost trivial to build though.

I got PosChengband 5.0 to work on my Windows 8 machine with Windows Defender. Before downloading the install file go into Windows Defender settings and exclude Poschengband.exe (Defender will even read into the zip file and see Poschengband.exe in there.) You should have no problems after that.
