[Announce] Composband 7.1.0 released

It's been a good while since I uploaded a compiled version of composband. When FrogComposband had its first release, there was more that I wanted to keep than revert, but I still wanted to move the game in its own direction, separate from the direction FrogComposband is taking. The influx of new content as well as working on my own ideas gave me a lot to do, and despite significant changes there were always things that I meant to do before a release. I used up some newly available free time making a list of such things and getting round to them, and without further ado I give you the pre-compiled windows version.

https://github.com/OwenGHB/composban...band-7.1.0.zip

Given the awkward genealogy of this result, a full changelog is beyond the scope of this post, but a summary of major features includes:

Removal of pseudo-ID. Items will be tagged average/good/ego/artifact on creation.

Imported a great many rooms from Angband. Dungeons are more interesting. Staircases are easier to find.

Shallow dungeon levels are smaller, the effect disappears at DL30.

Riding and weapons proficiencies have changed to reduce required grinding.

Chaos patron behaviour has been altered - chaos warriors are even more fun, and can choose their patron

Several new types of egos have been added, and jewellery egos have undergo some modification. It is now possible to find randart jewellery as random drops.

As well as a large number of changes to the layout of the world - towns, dungeons, quest sequences, rewards etc and miscellaneous code changes (for those used to frog I will point out that Telmora has a separate quest line at the temple, and Meng Huo is hiding out near Anambar)

The best way to find out more about the variant (besides visiting angband.live) is to download and play.

I get this error message any time I try to look at monster knowledge (besides known monsters) or save macros:

Code:
Failed to created temporary file
.C:\Users\(first 6 letters of username)~1\AppData\Local\Temp\s41g.c
I can save macros just fine but I can't look at wanted monsters or pets because of this.

I used to get that in POS all the time. Once was 'fixed' by a complete deletion and reinstall. It also affected a lot of the other ~ information categories as well.

Well, I tried deleting composband and re-downloading it... didn't help.

Finally got home and had a chance to check it out.
I get the error trying to use (w, u, k, p) in my case it fails to create a file scow.0. The Zero increments with each subsequent error.

Have you tried creating the directory yourself?

I'll look into it; there are a couple of bugs in the game itself too, so I'll try and work in a patch in the next few days

The reported file name doesn't seem to have a valid extension. All the other files in the destination folder are '.tmp' while the error says something else, .0. or .c

Thanks for the Update I truly enjoy where this branch is going. I had popped back over to playing rogue likes after a couple years break (Work Baaaad) and this is the first one that really clicked. So thank you XD

I get the same error (in my case file is s2f0.1 - the .1 increments as described above).
I trigger the error the first time I respond with 'A' to destroy an item. Normally should add item to the pickpref.prf file (which does exist).
Directory does exist.
