(Z) Favour request - 2.2.8 / 2.4.0

Evening all

Would anyone have a pointer to a download location for either Z2.2.8 and/or 2.4.0. pretty please? The only version I could find that far back on sunet.se was in Japanese (I think)... (or alternatively, would anyone mind emailiing me a copy if there isn't a download location on the web)

Ta muchly,

S.

PS I'm running Windows here so a .zip would be ideal...

Thanks, Faust - I tried that but both the 2.2.8 and 2.4.0 win.exe files just give me a black, blank screen when I open the unzipped exe... tsk...

I just tried the 2.2.8-win.exe and it worked fine for me. Just double clicked the .exe and installed it where I wanted it, ran no problem.

Hmm, I must have done something wrong last night (unless it's not XP-friendly) - I'll have another go tonight.

Ta,

This may or may not help you, but I remember a problem with Z where It wouldn't load if I unzipped it to a path containing any spaces; C:\Program Files\Zangband was no good, so I moved it to C:\Zangband and that fixed the problem.

I was playing under WinXP at the time also, so it should be compatible - but you could always try using compatibility wizard to run with Win9x settings.

EDIT - I played v2.2.8

Had a spaces problem as well, using OmnibandTK... fixed it though, just used a space-less directory.

Now I think about it, I think my problem might have been with the ZTK components.

Thanks, team - funnily enough, I had no bother opening it the next evening (without any modifications at all).
One more query - what version of Z would people recommend? I didn't much enjoy the new Z with different dungeon types when I tried it a while back but to be fair, I didn't give it much of a chance...

Ta,

S.

I like 2 verion of Z:

- 2.7.2 with branding attachment (2 new races, 1 new class, branding scrolls, mutation at start, and some more)
- 2.5.5 - that was experimetnal ver, in which chests gives you min exeptional objects
