New PWMAngband 1.2.0 beta 1 released!

– Remove “change password” feature from character description screen
– Reduce the allowed minimum size of subterms to a fifth of the maximal size (16×4)
– Fix 32bit builds of the Windows client
– Allow looking and targeting with roguelike keyset
– Make maximum number of characters per account a server option

Players must get the new client to play on beta 1 servers. Files are available for download at the usual location: http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr . Here’s a little upgrade procedure for players:

1) Rename the /PWMAngband directory to /PWMAngband_old
2) Unzip the binaries into /PWMAngband directory
3) Replace \PWMAngband\lib\user by \PWMAngband_old\lib\user
4) Replace modified configuration files by the ones from /PWMAngband_old: the ini files, any .prf modified in /lib/customize, any .fon added in /lib/fonts
5) Archive (or delete) /PWMAngband_old
6) Restart your client

And this one for server admins:

1) Rename the /PWMAngband directory to /PWMAngband_old
2) Unzip the binaries into /PWMAngband directory
3) Replace \PWMAngband\lib\user by \PWMAngband_old\lib\user (this should copy the savefiles, preference files, logs and score file)
4) Replace modified configuration files by the ones from /PWMAngband_old: the cfg file 
5) Archive (or delete) /PWMAngband_old
6) Restart your server
