Most of them are similar. Basically, you have (in descending order of difficulty):

Cthangband was originally based on the Zangband 2.1.0 codebase. Both it and Angband have drifted quite far apart over the last two decades (although the big switch statement is something that is left...

It's by no means finished.

It works and it's stable, but there's a lot more refactoring and code improvement that can still be done (although that's probably something that will never finish - it...

[Announce] Cthangband 6.0 ("20th Anniversary Edition") Released

Yes, that's right. It's 20 years since I first released Cthangband onto an unsuspecting world.

There isn't one, at the moment.

To be honest, it might be more effort than it's worth anyway. As part of the 5.1.0 changes, I stripped out much of the non-Windows code in preparation for the C#...
