Thumbs up Unangband is livening up again!

http://unangband.blogspot.com/

Quote:
Unangband has been on hold a bit longer than I initially intended. In the interim, Berlios, the host and source code repository has died, although Source Forge has 'helpfully' picked up the SVN repository and file distribution.

I say 'helpfully' with caveats due to the deceptive advertising on the Source Forge download page, which is why the links to the right point have been updated to Github (for source code access) and Dropbox (for file distribution) and only the other files links to older versions references the Source Forge site.

I've also received an email with a fix to the long standing 'monsters don't perform range attacks' which plagued the last ever release of Unangband, from a helpful contributor (Alexis Sheuer). I got this email in February, however, which should be an indicator of how far I've successfully got towards integrating the small patch required to fix this.

Nevertheless, I'm in the process of slowly building up a build environment again and may have opportunity to release a fixed version of the Unangband 0.6.4 branch, and perhaps even an Unangband 0.7.0-very-alpha in the not to distant future.
Always good to see a variant making a comeback.

UnAngband deserves a revival of interest.

If someone tells me of a race/class combination that is not totally busted, I'll happily run another one. I think quite a few people have complained that there are quests / scenes that are also pretty broken too, but we can't do much about that.

Darn, nothing since July. Whenever I have the urge to play Angband (every 6-12 months) I check to see if he's updated what is definitely the best variant.

Still keep playing 0.64a anyway, and keep dying around 30 clvl, despite the difficulty and never being a winner, this is the most fun *band for me.

I play mainly as an undead master, either a vampire or a man from Erech, always enjoying the epic war, either summoner-VS-summoners, or summoner VS army of orcs.
