If you were really ambitious, you could split the server into a globally-distributed set of game servers sharing a common backend. Players would get the closest server, and spectators would get the backend (and concomitant lag). Put it up on AppEngine or something and you should be able to scale automatically to cope with high load, too!

I'm sure that's a perfectly reasonable project to work on in your spare time for no pay. And not at all overengineering.

Chat is in! Just about. You need to be logged in to see it. It's pretty rudimentary right now - there's one room and no list of users etc, but it's actually a frontend to an irc server so we can have all that. There are also mysterious server crashes for reasons I can't discern, so be careful with that and try not to break anything.

I've made some progress getting Sil to fit the mold and it should be available to play soon.

I will also say that while individual tasks are always easier than I would expect fitting it all together is more difficult than I nonetheless continue to expect. Easy access to char dumps and recorded games are next on the agenda.

How to tell if you've crashed the server: if you type something into the chat, and don't see your own message displayed back to you, please stop doing that and reload the page. The server will reboot itself on a crash, but it's still not a very nice thing to do.

Consider the current implementation of chat to be 'it might work, if you're lucky and the tides are right'

What happened to the Borg? I haven't been able to watch it in recent builds.

Grrr. Died to a dark elven sorcerer, entirely because it was purple instead of light red. These colors are not user friendly.

The webserver colors for PosChengband are a big off also

Edit - Sorry, I meant to say "The webserver colors for PosChengband are a bit off also"...NOT "a big off"....

Exclamation Bug?

Just created a profile and started a Angband character; kobold warrior, and apparently I know about amulets of adornment, rings of protection, and rings of reckless attacks from birth. Is this something that should be happening?

No thats all right. Amulets of adornment do nothing, and the other 2 give boni to AC, to hit, to damage which are known because basic items have it. You just happened to find the known mods first.

There was a time when you didnt know that your starting dagger was (+0, +0) and instead it was (??). That was weird; this way is better.

Yeah, it'd be possible that (+0,+0) would not trigger the ?? flag and initially just show as a dagger (1d4). But the melée and armor bonuses are just too easy to figure out to make it worthwhile. Literally the first monster you hit (or hits you.) Brands are essentially as easy of course, but it's no effort to make them work as normal.

Yes that's as expected - the version of Vanilla angband installed on the server is a development build from about a week ago, and the ID game has changed since 4.0.5

Okay I think I've fixed the issues with the sockets timing out - feel free to tab away and come back. Chat should be working too but bear in mind it's the crudest implementation imaginable - the irc backend has been done away with for now, but it will come back.
