Here is some sources for older versions
Some (unprompted) praise for Steamband:
I just want
to say that this is absolutely the best variant I have ever played.
Be sure to take a look at some of the entertaining writing by many players of Steamband over in the Verbose Dumps section. Many tales of victory and woe await you there.
There are several other resources listed below. Make sure and after you play Steamband to post your Dump on the oook ladder, so you can see how you compare to other players. :-) You can reach oook at http://angband.oook.cz
There is also a Steamband mailing list. Files, and polls and discussion about the game are available there. You can join by sending an email to email@example.com You can also visit the Yahoo groups page here.
There is extensive online help in Steamband 0.4.1. Hitting '?' while a skill, race, or class is selected will give you information on it. Hitting enter will display a menu showing all the commands. Hitting '?' will display help, and you can access a variety of FAQ's that provide basic information on how Steam is different than other variants.
A extra-special thanks to everyone who has contributed to Steamband.
Also, I don't use a Macintosh anymore as a development platform. The tools were nicer - but nothing I can do. No more Macintosh compiles from me. Perhaps I'll get the development box fixed someday.
