MAngband server back online
 
http://mangband.org/?setskin=abitmodern

After numerous months, it's finally back up! Now I wonder how many more years will pass before the release of 1.2 ;)

Also PWMangband doesn't work. But there at least I got message right after I enter log-pass:

Your client won't work at this server (server version is too old)
I've downloaded past version of PWMangband too.. Hm.

If you try to connect to Billsey's server, it is Version: 1.1.11 (Build 9), so you need a client with exactly that version. I don't maintain old versions, especially builds that are not final builds (which is build 10 for 1.1.11).

To play PWMangband, the easiest way is to play on your own server. If you make it public (via the REPORT_TO_METASERVER option), other players will also be able to play on your server.

Checking the website again, now instead of having 404 error when trying the link to the forums, we get a blank page instead. This seems to be an improvement!

Ok :(

But I do not know how to setup server, I would like to try it.

As I wrote at TomeNET forum considering Windows server:

Quote:

Please could anyone post tutorial for dummies - which server reqs. do I need to start server, how to do so & etc? I wanna to start server to learn how TomeNET works, how it stores it's data & etc.
Thanks.
The same thing comes to PWMangband server :D Also interesting, is it possible to start server at Raspberry Pi, for example? If so it could be not too hard to estabilish server with up-to-date version of PWMangband and Mangband with such mini-server.

PWMangband is only compiled via Windows because I'm incompetent with Linux ;)

So if you want to use Linux, you need to have WinE.

Otherwise, setting up a PWMangband server is very easy:
- edit the following in mangband.cfg: BIND_NAME = "yourserver.yourdomain.xxx" (if you want your server to show up on the metaserver), CONSOLE_PASSWORD = pass (the admin password), DUNGEON_MASTER_NAME = DM (the admin name)
- run "mangband.exe" (the server)
That's it.

I'm not competent with Linux too :P

I see, thanks.. Maybe I'll try to start server then soon (tm). But it would be fun of course to be able to play online at persistent server :( Hope that game servers would manage to update one day.
