Erm ... you can only delete branches. Master is the "trunk", as it were.

Ah, thanks - I hadn't spotted that. Yes - github makes it easy to see what you have changed, but I'm more interested in what you're planning to do next!

Yeah I just thought I could delete "my" master, as it is only a copy of the true master ...

You can certainly do that - just nuke the whole directory and start again with git clone. But of course, deleting the trunk takes all the branches with it ...

Well it'd be only an extra step then I guess (to name the new fork ivanilla instead of master) but ... not bothering at the moment, let there be two branches.

yeah, I"m getting errors on the ivanilla branch.

I was using Microsoft Visual Studio Express to compile following PaulBlay's instructions here.

Windows, Visual C++ and TortoiseSVN for Angband SVN compile

1. Download and install TortoiseSVN (requires reboot)

2. Navigate to a convenient folder (using Explore or via My Computer), right-click and choose "SVN Checkout" menu option.

3. Enter "svn://rephial.org/angband/trunk" for the url of repository. Click OK and you should have the latest SVN source on your computer in a few minutes.

4. Copy the source code somewhere else (if you want to mess around with it).

5. Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition.

6. Start the Visual Studio 2008 command prompt and change to the
source directory of angband (e.g. C:\angbandSVN\src\ )

7. Make the file with
nmake /fMakefile.nmake RELEASE=1
(leave off the RELEASE=1 for a debug compile)
I guess I could try using MingWin, but there was some problem I had with it the first time I tried.

edit: yeah, i remember the problem I have. I have no idea how to get a command prompt with Mingw.

I run it from normal "cmd" window in Windows. Just have the /bin dir included in path like the guides say (from Computer Properties, extras, environment variables or whatever it is in English) and it works for me atleast.

The installation of mingw is stupid though, there is no GUI for the mingw-get but it doesn't say that in big blaring letters anywhere really obvious but you have to find the info that the error message you get is "normal" yourself. Need to use the mingw-get update/install etc cmd line cmds...

I use cygwin for my compiles. Way less complicated than Mingw. IIRC I had a problem with path lengths in mingw, it didn't understand long paths (which were not that long, way way way less than XP understands).

With cygwin I haven't had any problems ever.

Not quite. You can name a repo anything you like, regardless of whether you create it from scratch or fork (clone) it from an existing repo. But every repo, whatever it is called and however it is created, has a branch called "master". This isn't a branch at all, but the trunk from which other branches are made. You cannot delete this master branch without deleting the entire repo and starting over. You *can* delete any other branch in a repo, except master.

For this reason, it is sensible to do most coding and testing on other branches, and make changes to master only when you are certain you will not want to undo them.

I think I got it to compile. Although, the broken birth menu does make it a pain, but I think I was able to start up a no-selling game. Unfortunately I have to get some actual work done now, but maybe I'll get a chance to play some tonight.
