versions for os x ?

Hey -
I was wondering what all variants have a pre-compiled version for os x? It seems to be not too many.

Thanks!

I've got a mac, but I just play Vanilla.

Although now that you mention it, I'd really like to try Quickband.

Well, FAangband, obviously; also Oangband, Steamband (old stuffit file, possibly ppc only) and Unangband.

You can also usually compile *bands in a terminal on OSX, if you install XCode, which comes on the OSX discs but not usually installed. Here are pete mack's instructions on how to do this (copied from this thread on rgra):

Quote:
Note to all OS X users: if you install the X11 emulator, you can run
any variant as a simple Unix app, rather than an OS X app. It works
fine, except it saves character info in ~/.angband, which is an
invisible directory for most OS X apps, and is visible in the finder
only through "go to file."

Just build the standard unix build with Makefile.std, these compile
flags:

CFLAGS = -Wall -pipe -g -D"USE_X11"
LIBS = -lX11 -lcurses -ltermcap -L/usr/X11R6/lib

launch from the terminal with
$ angband -mx11

(You need to run from the parent directory, not src.)
I believe the x11 emulator pete refers to comes by default with tiger and leopard. If any of this needs more explanation, I can probably help (although I haven't actually tested this. I should do that).

Let's see you on the ladder, then.

Seriously, really nice to see you on the forum (even if you are a fat middle-aged guy pretending to be a woman). Have fun playing and please report any bugs and missing features.

Will do - I have actually been playing vanilla angband for about 4 years, on and off. I'm excited to try some variants out.

Nick's nailed the current list, I think. UnAngband and Steamband will both have shinier OS X clients come their next releases as I ported the latest V changes to them.

If anyone has specific variant port requests I'm happy to take a look (depending which codebase the variant forked from and how many changes they've made since, porting can be easy or tricky...)

As I am feeling poorly, I couldn't concentrate and have done that for you today

It turns out Quickband could already compile an OS X version, possibly inherited from NPP; however the interface and code looked so old I've ported across all the latest improvements. So this Quickband supports graphics, sound, recent games menu, etc... let me know if you run into any problems.

Available at a new variants page I've put together for hosted stuff, where I've also put Steamband until Valis releases an updated version.

Edit: oh yeah, I drew a new icon for it too, the Windows one didn't look quite right
