I have just downloaded 6.0.2. There was no problem with msvcrt110.dll and my previous 6.0.0 folder still contains msvcrt100.dll. However, I'm on an outdated OS (Windows 7), so that could be why it works. I also haven't run Windows Update the latest few months due to all the problems reported on askwoody.com.

Anyway, I was able to start the game, create a character and get to the town map. From there I just quit. I'll start playing this version sometimes next week.

Thanks for maintaining this variant. It has been quite fun to play.
Should I ever feel the need to refresh my experience with C/C++ on Windows I may contact you, but right now I have too many other projects I would rather focus on.

Also, I see that Windows Security Center is deleting msvcr100.dll for some reason, causing the Poschengband.exe not to run.
As I recall, that DLL is only needed/included if MSVC is set to compile the game in "debug" mode rather than "release" mode. So changing that setting should be the easiest fix.

Yeah, as mentioned in one of your commits, lot of fixes you attribute to R are actually originating from pseudo/ellipsis.

But thanks for the fixes. I will try to bump R to new version someday, but it is pretty daunting effort considering fixing merge conflicts and refactoring items etc. At least it is good chance to go through my shitty classes and fix them up a bit again.

Good to see 6.0.2 available now. When I get the chance, I'll take this for a spin and make sure it properly loads savefiles (unlike 6.0.0) on Windows 10 (what I use).

Was able to load a 6.0.0 save file into Poschengband 6.0.2. The inventory and the stats looks well. Thanks for the fix

I created a new 6.0.2 character, saved at clvl 8 in the wilderness, and re-loaded it...no crash, which is good. However, the "off-center wilderness tile" bug may happen when re-loading a save in the wilderness.

The new Outpost (spoiler) has immediately turned the game into "you can run, but you can't hide" until you take the stairs into Stronghold.

I'm getting - "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application." On Windows 7 using the 6.0.2 binary.

Try using the 6.0.0 library and see what happens

Also this bug from the 4.0.x era:
Apparently there was a player (Tuip) whose Demeter parentage Shieldsmater kept resetting weapon proficiency to 0 despite Weapon Mastery. Anyone else still encountering this in the 5.0.x or 6.0.x era?

Here's Tulip's Shieldsmaster (a winner, too):

Follow-up on a different known present 6.0.x bug:
So when sell cursed items to stores, they are kept in stock and you get to buy them right back for 0 Au!

And Chris - what version of Windows are you using to test PosChengband?

Apparently, the Main Gauche no longer gives a 5 AC bonus for left-handers....

Do your Windows user have administrator privileges?
I found this link, that list a bunch of different causes for error 0xc000007b and one of them mentions administrator privileges. I have no problems starting version 6.0.2 on Windows 7 64-bit, but I run all my variants from an administrator account.
