The playability of V is something of a stumbling block for my enjoyment of many variants. For all that V is so Vanilla it's still simply a joy to play compared to variants based on older versions.

I play Sil and it's different enough from Angband that the play experience doesn't directly translate. Closer to home, I also play PosBand entirely for the Quylthulgs.

I can only agree .

Hopefully, there'll be some actual improvements to T2.x during 2015. (Well, you might disagree that they're improvements, but they'll be pretty mild, I think.)

Awesome, I just started to play Theme a bit, but ran into a problem. I play with New Tiles + Big tile mode on and some of the mobs are invisible, like silver snakes, etc. because the tiles are just missing. Also black spots on the overworld map. Is there a fix for it?

Unfortunately, I have no idea. Never played with tiles and they've been moribund for years and years. (Instead of just letting them languish and confuse new players, I've removed the option completely from my development branch. I'll reevaluate if/when I get a fully working Qt5 port.)

my gaming with variants up to 2004 or so, the favorite were:
Cthangband, Sangband, tome1.x.x, zangband and hengband.


From the new ones, since I got back in the last 3 years I only played Sil, but it is very different from vanilla and is very nice. Need to try the others like Poschengband. Also Tome is still a great game.

I like Sangband because I prefer the skill system to the fixed character classes that most of the other variants have. But since I discovered Dungeon Crawl I haven't really been playing it.
