Angband Borg 3.0.9 and windows
 
How can i get this and the screensaver to work? i've replaced the .exe but it tells me that the settings are wrong and to reinstall.

All you had to do was email me. I could have hooked you up. The borg page now has a precompiled screensaver. check here for the 309 download.

Be sure to report any goofy borg errors. There are still some issues to hammer out with the upgrade to 309.

I tried to get it running on a different comp but it was freaking out. The program wouldn't even launch. I am getting the same error Zappa is on one of my desktop machines. It runs perfectly on my laptop where it is compiled and such. It is compiled with VS2005.

Let me know if you have any problems on different machines.

EDIT:
after doing some checking. If I compile it with Borland's freecommandlinetools, it seems to work. So there must be some sort of linker missing on my desktop. So if anyone wants to see why my VS2005 project won't work on other machines, let me know. In the meantime, I will compile using BCC. It does make a slightly smaller file too.

I cant get it to work either. i think i'm missing the ini for the screen saver and when i try to run angband, i get a missing dll error.

I just made an upload at 12:40 Central Time. It should be working now. The correct INI is included now. Both Angband.scr and Angband.ini need to go into your Windows directory.

I tested it on my desktop machine and the Borland version is working fine now.

BTW, what DLL error did you get?

after replaceing the exe file, i get the missing dll error.

this is the missing .dll file: MSVCR80d.dll

i'm running win98SE is that helps.

I need a borg for dummies guide.

1. install angband
2. download new exe
3. download scr file
4. make sure scr and ini are in windows dir

edit ini? i couldnt see anywhere in the ini to select the path.
is the ini included in the scr zip or the exe zip?

i'm going to clear history/cache/cookies/temp files and
try it again.

(MSVCR80.dll/Win98) That is the problem, apparently; your Windows didn't ship with that and you have no other applications installed that use it.

You should still be able to download it from Microsoft, however.

The angband.ini file to which I am referring is a very short file that points to your angband directory. It tells the screensaver where to find the rest of the game files (including that other angband.ini file which is found in the angband directory). The proper screensaver angband.ini file is included with the screensaver package. It needs to be in the Windows directory, same as the Angband.scr file. It is a short file, only 3 lines long. Mine looks like this:
Code:

[Angband]
AngbandPath="C:\games\angband-3.0.9\"
SaverFile="Saver"

The other angband.ini file (found in the windows executable) is for the game, not the screensaver. It is a big file with lots of lines of code. It tells the game how to set up the term windows and where to position the game window and such. That file should stay in the angband directory.

I have tested the new files. They seem to work for me. Try downloading the new ones. The time stamp for the scr and exe files is 12:27pm on Feb 18th.

If you are having problems with that file (with the correct time stamp) then let me know via email.

309 works perfect at home.

i got 306 to run at work. if i have time later, i'll look at 309 again and try to get it to run at work.

in 306 screensaver: level 43 gnome mage so far. had a couple chars die between cl 1-4.

in 309 screensaver: level 23 half-troll warrior. havent looked at the dead chars yet. The half troll is pretty cool, 18/80 str/4 intel/4 cha...

Everything works great, thank you. i've had two borgs go to level 50 so far both have died. this current one at 42 looks promising. sometimes the screensavers stops when the inv is full and there is multiple things on the spot the borg is standing. other than that everything is right on.
