Comp 211
 
We're staying old-fashioned but with something slightly easier. This time there's an autodestroyer at least.

Kangband, the little known great-grandfather of poschengband. We're doing the 'Wasteland!' plotline. None of the quests from this plotline got marked for inclusion into Composband, but they should be more appropriate in the original context.

We're playing a class (almost) unique to this variant - the illusionist.

Where can one obtain a copy of Kangband??? And 2.9.3 or 2.9.3r1? MS DOS vs Windows it seems. Ah, 2.9.3. Kicked my ass every time (Vanilla, didn't get my first win til 3.0.6...) I don't know about you guys but it took me 5-10 years to get good at these games, and I'm still nowhere near as good as some. I wander around too much... and that's dangerous though it feels safer, makes you careless. I'm just going to bump into this sleeping d I walked around the corner to find because I'm crushing everything, oops, Kavlax. And I want to kill things, which is downright irrational.

@ranger jeff--i never won until Eddie started preaching diving. Then I won in fairly short order, with V3.0.1. That version remains the best balanced in V. I'd still play it, except it has the horrid old ID and UI.

Any idea how to start the dig quest? It doesn't seem obvious where the entrance is?

@ranger jeff The 2.9.3 and 2.9.3r1 savefiles are compatible, but I started playing on 2.9.3 and it seemed a bit buggy - the spell descriptions aren't correct for a start, so I've moved onto 2.9.3r1

Most of the quest entrances are in the wilderness around the town. IIRC, many of the early ones are in the southwest, near the dungeon entrance.

2.9.3r1 is used on angband.live (Gwarl's site).

A glorious Wilfred run was stopped abruptly when a fire-breathing Dracolisk one shotted him from 350 HP to -2. CL 37/DL51. A very enjoyable ride, I must say.

Thanks for setting up the competition, it's been great to visit places of *band's history!

Thanks Sideways. Never did find it, but no matter.

ranger jeff November 20, 2017 16:13

Okay, next question. My first try of angband.live! Had to change the font as the bottom couple rows were being cut off with default, other than that smooth sailing. But how do I dump to a file that I can upload here? Had a real glass cannon going, running naked but hitting like a bazooka with a long bow of accuracy and branded arrows. Run away from anything tough that resists fire and confusion... And I needed a staff of teleport, phase door is not an escape. And a few potions of speed would have been nice... Nar did me in with a pack of white wolves assisting cl 17 at 850 ft.

Oh, and nice to see all the new blood angband.live is bringing to the competition!

Edit: nevermind, I didn't see any files after my death dump, but playing now I see Wilfred.txt...

ranger jeff November 21, 2017 04:07

Okay, so, back to cl 17, much stronger, found an *Enlightenment* shallow for $15k at the shops, got okay AC. But last recall I got stuck in the top left corner of town and couldn't get out. Recalled back to dungeon and recalled back to town and back to where I should be, okay. Restocked recalls and finished my business and back down. Save and exit. Go to reload and I get an error "unable to read inventory"? Any way to save my char?

Gwarl November 21, 2017 12:16

Unfortunately I don't know anything about fixing broken savefiles. I've moved the savefile so you can download it at http://angband.live/rangerjeff/211rangerjeff.save and start a new character - otherwise there's not much I can do, sorry.
