Help
 
I'm not sure this is the right place to put this thread, but I don't know how to put save files from angband live onto the ladder, or competitions, I can't figure it out but I'm stupid, could someone walk me through it, please. :)

Create a character dump on angband.live (a TXT dump if it's Vanilla, an HTML dump if it's Frog or another Pos-like), follow the instructions at the Character Sheet screen (Shift+C in-game) if you're unsure how to do that. Download the dump (which is not a savefile) from angband.live to your computer, then upload from your computer to the ladder. You cannot upload savefiles to the ladder, and you cannot upload to the ladder directly from angband.live.

This still doesn't really make sense, I'm sorry I'm really inexperienced.

If it's V/old-style variant and your @ is still alive:

Press Shift+C in-game for the character description. It should say something like 'f' to file, so press f to create the dump, enter the filename you want (or keep the default name). Locate the newly created character dump on angband.live (look under 'files', the second icon on the top-right, or directly try an URL like angband.live/[insert-username]/angband/[insert.version.number]/[insert-filename]). Download that file to your computer using your browser's normal file-saving command (likely Ctrl+S). Go to ladder or ongoing competition, make sure you are logged in, click 'Browse...' (or local-language equivalent) to the right of where it says "Character dump text file", locate and select the dump you just downloaded. Add the character's name and your comments where appropriate, then click 'Post it!'.

If it's V/old-style variant and your @ is dead:

The tombstone screen is the last opportunity to create a dump, press 'f' on the tombstone screen then proceed as above. If you missed doing that, too late, you can no longer get a dump for that character.

If it's Frog/Compos/Opos/Pos/Ellipos and your @ is alive:

Press Shift+C in-game for the character sheet, press '|', insert the filename you want, make sure the filename ends in .html. Request help if for some reason you cannot type the | character. Proceed as above.

If it's Frog/etc. and your @ is dead:

Press ~ then Shift+H in-game for the hall of fame, press Ctrl-D to get the most recently updated characters, locate the one you want, press the letter indicated on the left, then press '|' and proceed as above.

Insert the filename you want, make sure said filename ends in .html, press Enter. Locate the newly created character dump on angband.live (look under 'files', the second icon on the top-right, or directly try an URL like angband.live/[insert-username]/frogcomposband/[insert-version-name]/[insert-filename]). Download that file to your computer using your browser's normal file-saving command (likely Ctrl+S). Go to the ladder here on oook, make sure you are logged in, click 'Browse...' (or local-language equivalent) to the right of where it says "Character dump text file", locate and select the dump you just downloaded. Add the character's name and your comments where appropriate, then click 'Post it!'.
