Files for Monster Memory?
Curiosity questions.

I've been updating to the latest nightly build each time one of my Pike characters (Dunadan Warrior) dies, and there's a new nightly available.

What files do I need to copy over to the new nightly to keep Pike's monster memory?

What other files are worthwhile copying over apart from monster memory?

Or is it a pointless exercise as eventually the files will be incompatible with changes made in the nightlies?

Monster memory is stored in the save file. I wouldnt copy anything else over unless you have your own customizations.

You might be better off using svn -- you can download in place and recompile -- it's definitely easier.

Here's my checklist for updating to a new nightly version:


1) ~/angband.ini
these are my custom window parameters (visibility, size, location)

2) ~/lib/apex/scores.raw
the hiscores file

3) ~lib/edit/flavor.txt
the customized flavor list (I love this! ..hope it makes it into 3.1)

4) ~/lib/save/[savefile]
the old savefile, whatever it's called

5) ~/lib/user/user.prf
your general preferences (also any class- or race-based saves)

6) ~/lib/xtra/sound/
replace the stock sounds with the dubtrain soundpack ( ;)

Here's mine:

svn up
make -f Makefile.osx (or whatever)
