"Don't let the name fool you: The Unnamed Angband has no shortage of distinct flavour that sets it apart from any other variant. You adventure in Tolkien's world, through towns and wilderness and multiple dungeons, journeying from Bree towards greater and greater danger.

This variant roughly doubles the monster list, expands the class-based system of Angband with numerous possible specialties that let you fashion a unique character, offers a positively absurd variety of terrain (cages that trap you, floor chests that can store objects, burnable woods, chasms, bloodstains), and includes a bunch of major interface improvements, including better presentation of graphics and an experimental isometric view." - From angband.oook.cz.
Welcome to the old Unangband page, a variant of Angband which I developed for over ten years.

The official Unangband home page is now at at https://dgolddragon28.github.io/Unangband/ which contains links to the latest releases and source code.

I would also like to thank the new Unangband maintainer DGoldDragon28 for taking over this variant. DGoldDragon28 had been developing a variant based on Unangband, and now has my blessing to continue with the main Unangband releases as well.

Unangband-0.6.2-wip7a has been released

This release is mostly a bug fix revision to wip7, however, I was able to sneak in some game play changes.

A precompiled OS/X executable is available at http://prdownload.berlios.de/unangband/Unangband-0.6.2-wip7a-osx.dmg

Please report any bugs to http://developer.berlios.de/bugs/?group_id=331

### Game Play ###

- You can now use the run command to 'step' into an adjacent monster, instead of attacking

- Vampires/inns allow rest until dusk/dawn.

- Service of Healing now available at the temple.

- You no longer have to be full to travel.

- The player only suffers a monster disease if the monster disease state isn't upgraded. This
gives them some grace e.g. preventing small chance of paralysis on the first blow.

- Disease monsters now afflict you with the disease effects straight away.

- Different approach to applying disease effects. They now only hit you when you enter a level,
unless a quick disease (which retains the old process).

- Added ecologies based on monster name and dragon breaths.

- Make trees resistant to blunt weapons.

### User Interface ###

FYI: Still can't link under XP/Vista with MinGW 5.1.3 (gcc-core 3.4.2). Still complaining about ralloc in main-win.c

I know you haven't done anything about it, and I didn't expect it either. I just tried under XP.

Anyone manage to compile under XP/Vista please tell me :)

Managed to compile a build of wip7a. You can get it (again) from http://pedantic.co.za/unangband.

Just loading up I noticed a useful (for me) change. There's a bit of tutorial which wasn't showing up in earlier builds. Quite useful actually since I'm a total Angband n00b!

tormodh said...

Yes, thanks. I just wondered what OS / tools you were using for compiling it, in case I wanted to tinker with the code myself.

I tried (under Vista / XP with MinGW 5.1.3):

cd src
make -f Makefile.cyg

and it gave me the errors I posted under the wip7 release post.

I guess I'd better dig for my desktop box and run it under Linux. I didn't like the mousey thing anyway (yet, at least).

Hi. Sorry for not being more specific. I'm using (K)ubuntu 7.10 to compile. Let me know if you need a hand.


tormodh said...

Thanks :)

tormodh: I've fixed the problem in SVN, and it should be straight forward for you to fix. My apologies for not getting this into 7a.

Replace the instances of ralloc with mem_alloc in main-win.c. Its exactly the same calling convention, and will fix the problem.

Works like a charm!
