Angband on Cygwin64 (on Win10)

Moosferatu was generous enough to hold my hand through the process of installing Cygwin64 for Win10 on my laptop and setting up Angband with sound!

Everything is working beautifully (I even found a shortcut for resizing the game window by holding down <CTRL> and sliding my finger along the trackpad).

However the game doesn't like me using the arrow keys. @ keeps zooming passed things, as if I'm holding the shift key down. If I switch to Rogue keyset, @ moves one square at a time like he's supposed to.

I'm really hoping I don't have to try to learn rogue keyset. That might be painful. So as a stopgap I'm just switching to rogueset and fumlbing around with those keys when I need to go down a staircase (arrow keys really don't want to stop on the staircase).

One other thing: sometimes it won't autopick up money when I walk over it while using arrow keys. I have to walk back and forth over the money a couple times before @ picks it up. There is no numpad on my keyboard; I'm using arrow keys that are dedicated as arrow keys (except laptop function key for volume and brightness)

Does your system have a numpad? (asking in case its a laptop without one) In the original keyset the numpad keys also move you around and might not be affected by the running behavior.

Ah, I didn't realize you were using the arrow keys. I'll try that tomorrow.

No NUMPAD on my laptop. Arrow keys are dedicated arrow keys, so they have no other function (except to adjust the brightness and sound when the special laptop function key is held down).

At 12:27 you can see @ have trouble going down the stairs. Will not stop on the stairs. And then shortly after that at 13:20 @ fails to autopick up money (although that may have more to do with this being a nightly version than my arrow keys; not sure if anyone else has experienced @ not picking up $?)

I got confused again; again could not attack "you are too confused" when I try to use arrow keys to attack, but when I switch to Rogue keyset I'm able to attack while confused and kill the mushroom.

It's possible the code you built doesn't have the run fix in it.

You could try doing the following in Cygwin:

Code:
cd angband
git pull
make
cp src/angband.exe .
And then run it.

Don't for get to copy the executable at the end, I have in the past, or you won't be running the code you just built.

Ok, thanks. When I do the last step $ cp src/angband.exe .

it says:


cp: cannot create regular file './angband.exe': Device or resource busy

Do you currently have Angband running? Windows doesn't let you overwrite files that are open.

I had to exit Angband to get back to the command line.

I tried to exit cygwin and reload it but it didn't seem to like that:

$ exit
logout
There are stopped jobs.

Sounds like it may not have exited cleanly for whatever reason. I would expect closing Cygwin, reopening it, and trying to do the copy again to work.
