Comp 197
Comp 197 is up -- a bit ahead of schedule, but I'll probably be light on internet access for the next week, so I thought I'd do this now.

Well the competition technically doesn't allow dump uploads for 2 more days and I've already splatted.

I got overconfident and picked an action other than "immediately teleport" on my first encounter with an arch-vile -- died in 3 turns.

Runs fine for me (windows 7). Debo's left the rogue key set on by the way, so change that if the keys are doing the wrong thing.

  1. Download 5.0.2
  2. Download an older version that works (4.0.0 does, I believe).
  3. Move the msvsc.dll (or whatever the broken .dll is called) from the 4.0.0 folder to the 5.0.2 folder.
  4. ???
  5. Profit.

Chris uploaded a version he compiled in debug mode at the 5.0.2 download link, so if you don't have msvs installed, you won't be able to run it.
Or something like that. Hope this helps!

Just replacing the msvcr100.dll file was enough. Thanks!
