Smile Pre-release HellBand 0.8.7

Hi,
this is the pre-release of Hellband 0.8.7, since its been a while I
wanted to make this one more of a 'beta'. The most important fix here is stability, there should be no more crash bugs. I've been flooding levels with monsters and items in wizard mode and hellband is now responding properly to abuse

Italian names
- 0.8.7 Italian name generator added ( male and female )

Yes, works fine on the Vista machine I found in a hurry.
Both machines are 32 bit, is yours as well, could that be the problem ?

Greetings once more, please try to visit http://download.hellband.net/ once more and download evil_hellband087.zip, it contains potentially missing dll's, let me know if this does the trick.

Cheers,
T.
