Restorations / Downloads

Over time I try to restore versions of rogue to a state where they can be compiled with modern C compilers and played on modern operating systems. I try to minimize changes to the source code but there have to be significant changes to save/restore, scorefile, and input handling functions. Furthermore a variety of bugs are fixed as well to prevent program crashes during execution.
