Re: Running Multiple Servers from one DNS

Maybe I am approaching this from the wrong perspective. How are ports handled between the server and the client. I have both of my servers set to different ports in the mangband.cfg file and I have my router set up to forward packets for the right ports to the right machines. Yet when clients conne...

How to play on mobile (Android/iOS)?

This guide mostly concerns Android, because we don't really ship iOS binaries. However, if you have a Mac and an iOS device, you can compile it yourself. Such version would only last you 7 days (till next recompile), which is bloody inconvenient, but, well... it's doable. One thing to keep in mind: ...

[pwm.tangaria.com] Vanila PWMAngband server

pwm.tangaria.com is a test server, which I mostly use for development purposes, however, I'll try to keep it up to date with latest PWMAngband, starting with 1.4.0 (because it can run on Linux).

Beware of constant wipes!

Forum passwords leaked

So, I've stupidly posted a full forum dump on a private Discord channel, then made it public.

Thankfully, those are hashed with salt, so you should last a couple of hours :) But if you care about your forum account, change your password.

Sorry about that :(

Re: Mage book stacking in house

Yes, when dropping things on floor, things shall stack first, crush other items/vanish later. I'll take a look at magic books. OK, yeah, our current floor stacking mechanism only allows potions, scrolls, food and ammo. In Angband, everything gets stacked correctly, so this is a horrible bug. Fixed i...

Re: Saving macros

mmmh...I remember in the old versions of MAngband (some years ago) I used keys like "-", "N", "x" and "h", for example... But now these keys interact with macros in other section of the game (like in the shops) or in creating macros (like \em1h with key "h" as macro command). In this case should be...

Re: Saving macros

There is an uninstall option in the Start / Programs / MAngband menu on windows.

You might also want to visit the user pref dir (the one with user-win.prf and others) and delete the pref files you wrote earlier, as those are definitely broken.

Re: Saving macros

Turned out what you experienced was a deadly combination of two bugs (#1288 and #1289) and not the expected behavior :(

Thanks a lot for bringing attention to this.

This has been fixed in 1.5.2 client.

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

I'll try to re-trace your steps and see if I find anything.

Could be something fundamentally broken (on the windows build?)

Sorry for not getting to you earlier, and yeah, we aren't a densely populated server :(

UPDATE: Yup, those are bugs, plain and simple, will be fixed in the next version.

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

SDL is the "Multi-window" client and it expects the macros to be in 'user-sdl.prf'. Apparently, you're using normal Windows clients, so the macros should be in 'user-win.prf'. The file seem to exist on your screenshot, could you try opening it in with something like Wordpad and verify the contents? ...

Re: Creating Macros - Step by step

Assuming everything works as expected, you're supposed to save your macros into a file. (%, 2) Then, you are supposed to load this file on each session. (%, 1) The following files are auto-loaded : user-<SYS>.prf, <PClass>.prf, <PRace>prf, <Playername>.prf and also any file included[1] from user.prf...

Re: Forum registration re-opened

Yuck, and right after that we got hit by spambots :/ Fiddling with phpbb captcha/signup settings to see if it can be made any better.
