Exactly. Why are some here casually dismissing this under the assumption that it's either a false positive (Maltule.C!cl is not actually there) or that Maltule.C!cl is not potentially harmful? Of all the *bands I've downloaded (a hundred?) this most recent build of PosChangband.exe is the only one my antivirus has ever flagged as a threat. I know how to bypass my antivirus, but why should I assume it's a false alarm?

Well yes. That was my first response when my installation got deleted. So I tried building myself. Unfortunately...
One difference is this is one of the few that is built with MSVC. (I have tried compiling MINGW without success.)

I'm a windows user myself (I play console roguelikes on a Linux VM though), so I know how threatening getting a virus is.

I have a self-compiled copy (using MSVC) and have scanned it with Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, and ClamWin. I have received no positive reports, for whatever that is worth.

Could you make that self-compiled copy available for others to use, by any chance?

Enclosed are malwarebytes and clamwin reports. Didn't bother running S&D again.

EDIT: forgot to include msvcr100.dll

Also this one is a .zip in case you don't have 7zip: http://www64.zippyshare.com/v/ewVEoP8H/file.html

Thanks, but now it's asking for MSVCR110D.dll

Just find out which version of the MSVCR distributable it is, and download it from MS. (Also, that is a debug build. Ouch.)

Hey guys,
I have successfully made a screen recording (with XSplit Broadcaster 2.8) of my most recent Compo 190 attempt (Marian 96) - from the moment I downloaded the Compo 190 savefile to literally every movement in its first 2 hours of gameplay including in-game notes, with awesome heavy metal music in the background. This video will show how I approach the wilderness and how I fight dudes. You'll also notice that I resoundingly defended the wilderness at some parts during the video

Links:
Marian 96 START to 2hr mark
Marian 96 2hr to 2hr30min mark


Note that Peltor777 is my YouTube username.

[If it's already uploaded and not yet playable, it's because YouTube is still processing it]
