Angband Releases: PCAngband 1.2



Version 1.2 of PCAngband was released on 20th May 1993. It was one of a series of releases for the PC made by Charles Teague based on his port of Frog-knows, and the first to contain new features and improvements beyond simple bugfixes. All the features added in this release eventually made their way into the "main" game.



  • The look command has been improved to give some idea of how hurt a monster is, with five levels ranging from unhurt to almost dead (with equivalents for unliving monsters).
  • A rod of Trap Detection has been added to make warriors more playable.
  • An autoroller has been added, adapted from another Moria spinoff, Druid Moria.
  • High score display colorized to highlight your score.
  • You can now write out your character description to a file from the tombstone screen
  • Enlightenment potions now provide self-knowledge as well as their other powers.


  • Wizard mode characters no longer included in the highscore table.
  • Deletion from the highscore table now works properly.
  • Summoned group monsters are all lit properly
  • No need to use 'g' key to enter a shop
  • Quest code fixed so that killing a quest monster (Sauron) out of depth still completes the quest
  • No trap doors on (uncompleted) quest levels
  • Arkenstone will not be harmed by silver jellys
  • Curse Weapon and Curse Armor scrolls fixed
