This has happened to me a few times in more than one variant. A windows reboot always solved it. Logout probably works too, was a while ago last time so I don't quite remember if that was enough or not.

Restart didn't fix it. Am I the only one seeing this?

I followed all the instructions, and it's working fine for me (win 7 64-bit VM); running between two houses takes about a second.

Ok, thanks. Maybe I'll just start over from scratch.

Early in the messages there is an error message: "Error : cannot open file mangband.cfg" but that is followed by many messages about initializing arrays, "create TCP socket," and finally "Drakon : server is running version 1.1.9 (build 4)." On the info portion of the UI, in the upper left of the screen is gray text "LAG: [ ------ ]" I don't know what that means.
That's your problem: "Error : cannot open file mangband.cfg". I suppose you forgot to rename mangband.cfg.txt to mangband.cfg, or didn't copy it in the correct directory (it should be at the root with the .exe files).

The result is this: "timer delay 1000 ms timer resolution is 1 ms.". This means you play with FPS=1 (one frame per second), instead of the default FPS=75 which is defined in mangband.cfg, making your game playing at 1/75 the normal speed.

I am not exactly sure how to go about setting up this game. I've created a Mangband folder and unzipped both the server and the client into it. "replace mangband.cfg by the file attached to the previous post (rename mangband.cfg.txt to mangband.cfg)" the downloaded file is already called mangband.cfg not mangband.cfg.txt so i replaced that, but it's still listed as a text document.

and then "replace mangclient.ini by the file attached to this post (mangclient.ini.txt -- rename)" this file is already named mangclient.ini now here's where i'm getting really confused, where is the mangclient.ini file i am supposed to replace with this one? i see mangclient, mangclient_gcu, and mangclient_sdl but not mangclient.ini.

Sorry if this is something simple, but it's really confusing me.

It may be to do with your folder view settings. If they are set to not show file types (or whatever the exact option is called) it will show magnband.cfg.txt as mangband.cfg, but call it a text file. If you change that setting, it should show the full name. Once you rename and remove the .txt, it should ask you if you really want to do that because it might make the file not work; say yes. Then do the same with mangband.ini.txt, and with the Drakon.prf.txt file (which should go in the lib\user folder).
