Angband variant repository
 
I have started work on a master git repository of all Angband variants (previously mentioned in this thread). This is a work in progress; the current one can be manipulated/renamed/relocated as appropriate.

I have some requests:
  1. If anyone has old versions of Vanilla - particularly 2.5.x and 2.6.x - could you please let me know? There are holes in any record I can find. The same goes double for Zangband. This link gives a fair idea of what I do have.
  2. I'd also welcome info about what variant forked from what when; I know (or can get from old rgra posts) quite a lot, but any help/confirmation is handy.
  3. If anyone has any comments about how this project should proceed, where it should be situated, etc, it would be really good to hear them now, while it's still easy to change stuff.

I still have the graphical allangbandTK package for windows, containing OmnibandTK-1.4 (AngbandTk_292r2 and ZAngbandTk-240r5).

Thanks, I think I have those - but probably won't put them up, because I'm only looking for source.

I think I have all the Z versions from 2.2.8 on, plus 2.2.3d, 2.1.1c and 2.0.6b, but any others I'd be happy to get (and I'm not really expecting any PCZangband).

I understand Z2.0.0 was forked from V 2.8.1 - can anyone confirm? I'll probably tidy up the roguebasin list of variants page when I'm done, too.

Sites with variant source code are fairly thin on the ground. ISTR when clockwork.dementia.org was closing, a bunch of stuff was moved to www.thangorodrim.net - which now seems to be dead itself. Anyone have any idea where the stuff went?

EDIT: OK, I have found thang thanks to the wayback machine, and it seems that clockwork was mirrored to ftp.sunet.se, which still exists. Still on the lookout for early stuff though - latest gap noticed (surprisingly) is Oangband before 0.4.0.

Some early stuff can still be found at http://www.nic.funet.fi/pub/unix/games/angband/

Awesome - that helps considerably.

I have restarted this project, largely inspired by the desire to get a complete set of variants for Angband Linux.

So if anyone has old versions of source code lying around, I'm very keen to see if they fill gaps in my collection. Of particular interest (largely because of other variants branching from them) are:
  • Angband (duh)
  • Zangband
  • Kangband
  • OAngband
  • Sangband
  • CthAngband
  • Hengband
  • PernAngband (and yes, I'm aware of the issues)
  • GSN2band
  • Original Hellband
  • Psiband
  • XAngband
  • NewAngband/Portralis
  • DrAngband

I'm not really sure how you're organizing things in the git repo, so I can't tell... do you need Entroband (forked from Hengband, I believe)? I have a pristine copy of the 1.7.1 source zip lying around.

The source for Kamband 2.1 can be found easily on the net. I remember that it wouldn't compile for 64-bit Linux without some changes in the code. There may be similar problems with other old variants.

Looking at the file with most recent changes, I notice that I've modified the first lines of h-config.h to look like this:

Code:

/* File: h-config.h */

#ifndef INCLUDED_H_CONFIG_H
#define INCLUDED_H_CONFIG_H
#define L64

That's probably everything that I did. In any case it's the only file that needed changing, and I have a working file on my computer if anyone needs it.

I think this thread about Oangband 0.7 compile problems is where I found the info.

I can offer
  • Angband 2.9.1, 2.9.2, 2.9.3, 2.9.4-alpha, 2.9.6-alpha, 3.0.1, 3.0.2 (but I suspect all these are on rephial anyway)
  • Zangband - 2.3.5 and 2.6.2
  • Kangband - 2.9.2r2
  • OAngband - 0.5.1b, 0.7.0, 1.1.0 (you'll probably have all these)
  • Cthangband - 4.1.0b
  • PernAngband - 5.0.1
  • Psiband - 1.3.0
  • DrAngband - 2.9.9
In case of interest, I also have versions of:
