One somewhat dumb question: where do I download this variant to play?

I downloaded your current version but couldn't get it to work. I'm guessing it's trying to connect to mangband.org but the server is down and it hangs? How do I fix it?

Ah yes, it seems that mangband.org is down, that explains why I can't get access to the website. Trying to access the metaserver also fails, so you have to disable it by changing "REPORT_TO_METASERVER = true" to "REPORT_TO_METASERVER = false" in mangband.cfg. Then you just type the name of the server you want to connect, or localhost if you run your own server locally, in mangclient.ini (host=localhost in the [MAngband] section), and the client will connect directly to that server.

I tried that but it didn't work. That was not the problem. I had to change mangclient.ini
It took me a long time to realize that.

Yes, for the client you need to uncomment "host=localhost" so you connect locally to your server.

BTW beta 9 is out, I updated the downloads.

I'm getting an error saying the archive is corrupted.

That's strange... I just downloaded the binaries from my laptop and I can unzip the archive and launch the executables just fine. Maybe you tried to download the files while it was still uploading?

This is fixed for the next beta. If the client connects to the metaserver but doesn't manage to get data from it, it defaults to selecting a server manually instead of hanging forever.
