The source code that you have is what is used to construct the game. It represents the logic of the game in a way that humans can understand and modify, but that computers cannot run directly. In order to produce a game that you can actually interact with, the source code must be "compiled", which means using specialized software to convert it into a format that computers can run. Unfortunately compiling is fairly complicated. If you don't have an interest in computer programming, I strongly advise you to just download one of the PosChengband forks like FrogComposband that has already been compiled.

All right; I won't try any compiling.

As to FrogComposband, how is it different from PosChengband? I am attracted to it by the rather goofy, over-the-top flavour that the funny messages thread seems to show it to have. Is that still there in FrogComposband?

FrogComposband has more races, more classes, more personalities, more monsters, more dungeons, more quests, more artifacts, more item types, more options and more goofy stuff

But fewer bugs. At least I hope so.

If you would have liked Poschengband, you will likely like Frogcomposband. Frog is like PCB on steroids, with all the good and bad that might entail.

The first time I caught a cold in the dungeon it startled the hell out of me.

Frogcomposband is extremely similar to Poschengband in every way
I think the only reason to play Poschengband is if you are looking for something very specific that a particular version of Poschengband has/hasn't (such as every room is a special room: that option was taken out of late Poschengband and not put back in Frog)

I agree with the others suggesting FCPB. However if anyone is specifically after poschengband this link appears to still work for me:

[quote author=Piotrhabera link=topic=170531.msg7751738#msg7751738 date=1525381190]
I would very much appreciate a compiled verion of Poschengband. It does not matter what version it is, as long as it is good, I shall play it!

Try this: https://1drv.ms/f/s!Asycth9nrmPTrmjgKI957P_SYZiv

It probably depends on the visual c++ 2010 redistributable so if you get any errors about missing .dlls, install that.

You're losing the syllable war. You need to change your variant name to Bugfrogcomposband or something.

I have started on FrogComposband, and am loving it already. Thank you, wobbly, for the link for PosChengband, though.
