Pre-release HellBand 0.8.7
 
Hi,
this is the pre-release of Hellband 0.8.7, since its been a while I
wanted to make this one more of a 'beta'. The most important fix here is stability, there should be no more crash bugs. I've been flooding levels with monsters and items in wizard mode and hellband is now responding properly to abuse ;)

shawnosullivan December 9, 2009 01:10

Yes, works fine on the Vista machine I found in a hurry.
Both machines are 32 bit, is yours as well, could that be the problem ?

Greetings once more, please try to visit http://download.hellband.net/ once more and download evil_hellband087.zip, it contains potentially missing dll's, let me know if this does the trick.

Cheers,

Same message. Android phones have no copy paste...

Activation context generation failed... \hellband.exe... error manifest or policy file Microsoft.VC90.CRT.MANIFEST on line 4. Component identity found in manifest does not match the identity of the component requested.

Tatami December 9, 2009 02:53

Its my dying machine isn't it?

Reference is... "win32", version="9.0.21022.8 ... definition is ... "win32", version=9.0.0307229.1

Tatami December 9, 2009 11:53

Yep it was this fossil machine I have to use for the next few months. I just downloaded visual c++ 2008 distribution and it worked 1st time. Thanks!

My titan born under draco is only getting one blow instead of 3 with his dagger. I think this was in 0.86 as well.

Hey Tatami, you are experiencing a feature called fractional blows. Basically after every blow you get to choose what to do next.

This means that if you have 3 blows with your Titan, and you are standing near an almost dead Heretic, you can slay that Heretic with one blow and use your other 2 blows for another adjacent monster. This way your 2 remaining blows don't get wasted.

Same for monsters, if they have 4 attacks, you will never experience ( unless you're really slow ) all 4 at once, but you'll be trading blows.

Just think of it as being in the matrix in slow motion ;)

Titan descendants under Draco rock by the way ;)

Hey Konjin (why the underscore?) - I don't know how far Hellband has diverged from V, but is there any kind of patch or code segment you could attach to http://trac.rephial.org/ticket/987? It would be good to see how you've done this.

Tatami December 9, 2009 13:16

Sweet!

The knowlege menu is working fully now too. It wasn't previously.

The underscore is a reference to irc, at some point someone else already took konijn ;)

I didnt code that feature, it was Dean Anderson who did that, maybe we can ask him.

Really...
By all means let me know when stuff breaks, at this rate you can soon design your own sinner or Demon for Hellband :D

Canaanite Prostitute
This MALE prostitute offered services to men in his home country. SHE moves at normal speed?

Is this right?

After you give your character a name, at the option of starting over or playing the character if you chose to start over when you pick a new race and class the game jumps right to rolling the char history, bypassing the stat purchasing. It gives an appoximation of the stats the previous character had.

I just got a 3 ego item birthday gift at level 3.

April 20 ? :) I just got a new years gift from the game.

Tatami December 14, 2009 17:24

I just saw the birthday line from the char screen vanish and just guessed that was canned.

konijn_ December 18, 2009 15:25

So, that didnt seem to go too bad.
I will try and rescue my mac soon and try to build a mac release, then release 'for real' 0.8.7.

Oki - will write a PKGBUILD for Arch once its released. 0.8.6 compiles fine and seems to run without problems (no ideas about bugs - just made a char and died because of a fire trap at 50").
