How to compile Angband page

Robert Rühlmann has provided a collection of instructions at Thangorodrim that I suppose everybody knows about but I think it would be more consistent to have something here in Oook as well.

The wildly optimistic
Quote:
Compilation is as straightforward as ./configure ; make ; make install.
doesn't really apply to anybody using Windows.

The following details how I would explain the process to someone using VC++ (also sent to Robert).

Windows & Visual C++ for Angband 3.1.0

1. Install Visual C++
The free "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition" will work just fine
and can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/express/vc/

2. Download the source
The latest version should be on the top of the following page
http://angband.oook.cz/download.php

3. Unpack the source
winzip, winRAR or similar programs will handle this.

4. For Angband 3.1.0 beta or earlier you should replace the
.\src\Makefile.nmake file with the latest version from the subversion
repository. The direct link to the new file is
http://trac.rephial.org/browser/trun...Makefile.nmake
(download link at bottom of page)

5. Start the Visual Studio 2008 command prompt and change to the
source directory of angband (e.g. C:\angband-3.1.0beta\src\ )

6. Make the file with
nmake /fMakefile.nmake

http://rephial.org/wiki/Compiling is where we keep compiling info these days; I'll go add your instructions there at some point.

PS. Robert doesn't run thangorodrim.net anymore; I do. I need to do something with it at some point.

Actually I think I must have been there at one point. It's a pity it's number two in the Google results for "compile angband".

I do suggest a link to there from the Oook download page, though.

Now that I see that page my instructions don't add much substantial.
