[RISC OS] Angband state of play

Post by Harriet Ba » Wed, 05 Dec 2007 09:03:10


I'm finishing an article on Angband for Qercus magazine, and
ideally need to know what the current state of play is for:

central Angband website URL
FTP download address
RISC OS ports
RISC OS maintainer
....

No, I didn't, thanks. I think it's a bit out of date, though... Musus
Umbra was the maintainer before last, his Argonet pages are gone, the
swallows.demon.co.uk page is dead and I thought Thangorodrim was
replaced by something else these days?

As well as the sites mentioned by Andrew, see also
<URL: http://www.yqcomputer.com/ > for the current Angband (3.0.9) from the maintainer
of both the RISC OS port and Angband overall, Andrew Sidwell (aka takkaria).

In a dim and distant universe < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,
Harriet Bazley < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > muttered:

His website is currently at http://www.yqcomputer.com/
does say it's quite out of date although the Angband pages are still up at
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Oh, I think that's the one I was looking for - I knew someone had
replaced Thangorodrim, but I didn't know where the new site actually
was....

ftp://ftp.thangorodrim.net seems to be dead. I can't get any joy from
ftp://clockwork.dementia.org either - so presumably all the old archives
have gone.



Isn't it Antony for RISC OS?

[RISC OS] Angband state of play

I haven't done any work on Angband for a long while, but as best as I know:

The main Angband maintainer is currently Andrew Sidwell, who also
maintains the RISC OS port. http://www.yqcomputer.com/ is the main (Vanilla)
development site.

The main FTP site used to be clockwork.dementia.org, and then
ftp.thangorodrim.net, but both now appear to be down. The older stuff
seems to be available on ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/games/Angband, but the
newer stuff is a bit scattered. http://www.yqcomputer.com/ seems to have
weblinks to the other "live" variants.

As far as I know, there have been two major ports of the game to RISC
OS. The first was by Kevin Bracey, around the 2.7.9 series, the second
(much improved) was by Musus Umbra in 1998 or so. I provided some very
minor help with the latter port and used it as a base to compile a
number of Angband variants in the few years thereafter. Andrew took over
the RISC OS frontend code at some point - he's listed as its current
maintainer if you download the 3.0.9 source and look at src/main-ros.c

I think that many of my RISC OS ports of variants have fallen off the
net - there's not much demand for them these days and they don't seem to
be on sunet. I've got a fairly complete set from the first few years and
would be very happy to send you any if you need them.

HTH,
Tom
