10/01/96: Rogue's Quest: Version 1.0j


------------------------------------------------

Subject: 1.) What are the roguelike games?

A long time ago, on a computer system far, far, away, there was rogue.
Players wandered a dungeon, hacking and slashing at monsters, gaining
treasures, becoming more powerful, and living their D&D nightmares.

Rogue was a good game; people still play it. It was even distributed
with many copies of Unix. But rogue is a relatively simple and limited
game compared to most of the descendants it has spawned...

Although the common features of rogue and its many descendants are
'obvious' to many people, they are difficult to describe in simple
terms. Generally, the games mentioned below are single-user, fantasy
role-playing computer games, generally set in a dungeon, run with
a simple character-graphic interface. In all of the games, the player
controls a single character, who roams around getting more powerful,
in order to fulfill a difficult quest. Sword-and-sorcery rule the
day. Logistically, they're all free games; executables, and generally
sources, are available by FTP.

The similarities end there, though. More information can be found
in the 6 UseNet newsgroups dedicated to rogue and its descendants -
rec.games.roguelike.nethack, rec.games.roguelike.moria,
rec.games.roguelike.rogue, rec.games.roguelike.angband,
rec.games.roguelike.misc, and rec.games.roguelike.announce
(alt.games.omega belongs in this list, but is a poorly propagated
group, which many readers cannot access.)

Below are listed basic information about all roguelike games known to
me, in alphabetical order. I've listed the main ftp site(s) for each
game; however, it's polite to use mirror sites, if closer to you,
especially if you're not in the same continent.

Subject: 2.) List of major roguelike games

A long time ago, on a computer system far, far, away, there was rogue.

Rogue was a good game; people still play it. It was even distributed

Although the common features of rogue and its many descendants are
'obvious' to many people, they are difficult to describe in simple
terms. Generally, the games mentioned below are single-user, fantasy
role-playing computer games, nearly always set in a dungeon, run with a
simple character-graphic interface. In all of the games, the player
controls a single character, who roams around getting more powerful,
in order to fulfill a difficult quest. Sword-and-sorcery rule the day.
Logistically, they're almost all free games; executables, and usually
sources, are available by FTP.

(alt.games.omega belongs in this list, but is a poorly propagated
group, which many readers cannot access.)

Below are listed basic information about all roguelike games known to me.
I've listed the main ftp site(s) for each game; however, it's polite to
use mirror sites, if closer to you, especially if you're not in the same
continent. I've grouped the listings into 'major' games (those with
their own newsgroups), 'minor' games (other current games), and
'older' games (games that haven't been updated in several years.).

Most of my information comes from trolling the various newsgroups; if your
favorite game isn't listed, send mail to rg...@bronze.lcs.mit.edu

many of the more popular Roguelike games is at:

Subject: 6.) What are *not* roguelike games?

The following games have been reported as being roguelike in previous
versions of this list, but further information has shown that they are not:

Wanderer: a box-pushing puzzle like sokoban. (In c.s.g archives...)

Conquer, xconq: Multiplayer strategic wargame (cs.bu.edu, jyu.fi)

There are a lot of things that aren't quite in the category of
roguelike games, but that keep creeping into the roguelike
newsgroups...

For information about commercial games like Ultima, Wizardry, etc.:
comp.sys.*.games[.*]

For information about playing D&D or other fantasy roleplaying games
with other human beings, face-to-face or by e-mail:
rec.games.frp.*

For information about Multi-User-Dungeon games on the Internet:
rec.games.mud.*

For information about other games to play when you feel like bashing
innocent bits and bytes:
rec.games.video.*

Finally, there are text-mode puzzle games, like Adventure, Zork, and the
whole family of Infocom text adventure games. If you want to *play*:
rec.games.int-fiction
If you'd rather *write* them:
rec.arts.int-fiction

If what you're looking for isn't listed above, don't post to the
roguelike groups - you'll just annoy the Ancient Dragons - try:
rec.games.misc


------------------------------------------------

Subject: 7.) How to get files by FTP

Pretty much everything mentioned here is available by anonymous FTP.
FAQ lists cross-posted to news.answers and rec.answers can be gotten
from rtfm.mit.edu (18.181.0.24), under /pub/usenet/news.answers or
under /pub/usenet/more.specific.group.name

"anonymous FTP" is just a way for files to be stored where anyone on
the Internet can retrieve them over the Net. For example, to retrieve
the latest version of the FTP FAQ, do the following:

> ftp rtfm.mit.edu /* connect to the site; a message follows */
> anonymous /* type this when it asks for your name */
> <your email address> /* type your address as the password */
> cd /pub/usenet /* go to the directory you want to be in */
> cd news.announce.newusers
/* one level down (no slash). */
> dir /* look at what's there */
> get Anonymous_FTP:_Frequently_Asked_Questions_(FAQ)_List
/* get the file; case-sensitive */
> quit /* stop this mysterious thing */

If your FTP program complains that it doesn't know where the site you
want to use is, type the numerical address instead of the sitename:

> ftp 18.181.0.24 /* connect with numerical address */

If you don't have ftp access, send e-mail to mail-...@rtfm.mit.edu
with the single word "help" in the body of the message.

Getting binary files (executables, or any compressed files) is only
slightly more difficult. You need to set binary mode inside FTP before
you transfer the file.

> binary /* set binary transfer mode */
> ascii /* set back to text transfer mode */

FAQs and other lists are generally ascii files; everything else is
generally binary files. When in doubt, use binary transfers, since
they will work for all files.

Some common extensions on binary files in archive sites are:

.Z Compressed; extract with uncompress
.tar.Z Compressed 'tape archive'; uncompress then untar or tar -xvf
.gz or .z Gnu gzip; use gunzip (prep.ai.mit.edu:/pub/gnu/gzip.*.tar)
.tgz Gnu gzip of a tar archive; read the gzip man page.
.sit (Mac) StufIt archive
.zip (PC) Extract with Zip or Unzip
.zoo (PC) Yet another archive/compress program
.lzh (Unix and PC) Yet another...
.arj (PC) and another...
.lha (Amiga) Common archive format.
.exe (PC) Self-extracting archives - just execute them.
[Note: sometimes non-archived executables are stored.]
.uue or .UUE Transfer as text file; use uudecode to convert to binary
.hqx (Mac) BinHex format; transfer in text mode

Generic help can be found in the FAQs of comp.binaries.<your_system_type> for
how to transfer, extract, and virus-check binary files. (At rtfm.mit.edu)

If you can't FTP from your site, use one of the following ftp-by-mail servers:

ftp...@decwrl.dec.com
ftp...@src.doc.ic.ac.uk
ftp...@cs.uow.edu.au
ftp...@grasp.insa-lyon.fr

For complete instructions, send a message reading "help" to the server.

Some FTP sites, such as ftp.cis.ksu.edu, have dedicated mailservers that
will send you files only from that site; it causes less network load to
use local FTP servers where they exist.

If you don't know exactly what you're looking for, or exactly where it
is, there are programs and servers that can help you. For more info,
send e-mail to mail-...@rtfm.mit.edu with the body of the
message reading:
send usenet/news.answers/finding-sources
