MAngband preview server

11th February 2019

We're finally gearing up for the next major release. It's time to give our preview server a good shake-down. The preview server is currently in the alpha status, meaning we expect horrible bugs, regressions, things being broken or otherwise wrong. But you can help! Join the test!

Forums are back

10th February 2019

We have restored our forum. At the moment we are not accepting new registrations, as we'd like our old players to retain their old accounts. If you can't login, try using the "forgot password" link, and if that doesn't work either, ask on Discord.

Updated Windows Client (v1.1.4)

29th November 2018

A new version of the Windows client is available in the downloads area. This is a bug fix release, mostly fixing the crash on chat and problems with saving config files. This version doesn't need administrator access to install. Full change list is here.

We recommend you uninstall your current client before installing this, or things might get wierd. Note that if you have saved macros or window layout ensure you copy the existing files before uninstalling. The file C:\Program Files (x86)\mangband\mangclient.ini and the files in C:\Program Files (x86)\mangband\lib\user\. If you need help, ask in Discord.

Artifacts & Upgrades

22nd November 2018

Artifacts are now automatically removed from inactive players. The server (main server, not ironman) frequently checks if any player character has been inactive for more than 60 days, if so, any artifacts are removed from that character and put back in the game. At the time of this post there are now 123 artifacts available to find!

Additionally the servers have been updated to version 1.1.4, which, amongst some technical fixes, addresses an old issue with some monsters, like hounds and Quylthulgs getting to cast or breathe more often than they should. No client update is required.
