Welcome to Rogue Central @ coredumpcentral.org
11/25/17: Added a link to Retro Rogue Collection to Download page. Also made several behind-the-scenes technical changes. I hope to move this site over to HTML5 at some point, while still keeping the same look it's had since 2001.
On the Play Online page, I updated the link to play zRogue online, and removed two dead links to play the ZX Spectrum versions.
Also, a visitor recently informed me that the scoreboards in Hexatron's online versions of Rogue are not working properly. It should be noted that all of the games in the Play Online section are externally hosted, and bugs should be reported to those respected sites (though letting me know as well would be appreciated, especially if there are dead links).
Updated some links to externally hosted software on the Download page, and changed the Semicolon Software Rogue to a download hosted here, as Semicolon Software has moved their previous page which included Rogue to an old archived section.
Removed dead link in the Roguelikes page to the Roguelike Restoration Project. Maintenance of coredumpcentral.org's Roguelike Restoration Project Fork has continued and I will release new versions if needed.
Added a link to nlarn on the Roguelikes page.
Updated the name and link of DRL on the Roguelikes page.
Replaced the dead link to Glenn Wichman's A Brief History of "Rogue" on the Docs & Spoilers page with its latest Internet Archive version. Also added his latest Internet Archive version of "Rogue Stories" to the Links page. Removed DMOZ from Links page and updated the Dungeondweller link to its new location.
11/24/17: Removed references to a certain Roguelike which has since been altered to promote the developers' political views.
5/25/17: Added LinuxRogue ITA (Italian version of LinuxRogue) to Downloads page.
4/4/17: Fixed dead link to Songbird's Rogue.
2/14/17: Happy Valentine's Day! Updated the links to Songbird's Rogue and Rog-O-Matic.
1/19/17: Updated contact information with new Twitter account and copyright information.
11/24/16: Added Aztec C86 v3.4b Complete, the development environment used to compile DOS PC-Rogue. Both external Web links and local copies are available, with the program in the Utilities section and the release notes in the Docs & Spoilers section.
7/28/16: Removed all GnuPG signatures, information on GnuPG, and where to get the expired key being used, from all pages where present. Instead the different pages link to checksum files in MD5, SHA1, and SHA256 format. There are three sets of checksum files: Documents, Screenshots, and all other sections. They include checksums for all files, not just material originating from coredumpcentral.org. Added RevivedHack v2.3 to the Roguelikes page. Updated link to Java on Play Online page. Also updated the Contact page with a new e-mail, and updated the copyright date on all pages to 2016.
2/2/15: MOST LOST DONNIE RUSSELL MATERIAL AVAILABLE! Another sad disappearance fans of Rogue Central @ coredumpcentral.org are familiar with was Donnie Russell's Freewebs page and his freeware Windows games available to download or to play online via Flash. However, in my possession I have ClassicRogue v1.1 (Windows), v1.51 (Linux) v2.3 (Windows), and v2.5 (Windows), TileRogue old version (Linux) and v2.3 (Windows), MAGHD v1.7 (Windows), RevivedHack v2.5 (Windows), and LarnHD v1.2 (Windows) which are now available for download on coredumpcentral.org! Unavailable are AGB Rogue (Game Boy Advance) AGB Hack, and Rogueds (Nintendo DS) (please see the Contact page if you have these or any of Rogue Central @ coredumpcentral.org "Wanted Rogue Versions"). Also unavailable are the Flash versions used on Donnie Russell's page. Removed the old "coredumpcentral.org is back" above and changed "Contact" to "Wanted & Contact" Updated the copyright date to 2015.
5/29/14: ROGUELIKE RESTORATION PROJECT FORK ENDS! The maintainer of the original Roguelike Restoration Project has stated that the original project is not abandoned, and is working on new Rogue versions and Roguelikes. For this reason, I have decided to release FINAL VERSION v20140528 which consists of many bug fixes, and is limited to Rogue v3.6, Rogue v5.2, Rogue v5.4, and SuperRogue v9.0.
1/31/14: My "xcopfly" e-mail address is being phased out over the next few months, and I am now forwarding that address to one of my other e-mail addresses. The GnuPG key used to sign files here is still valid, and will be used until further notice. (Past downloads will still use the same key.) For more information, see the Contact page (which has been updated with new blogs and my Twitter account). Copyright date also updated on all the pages.
8/3/13: Rogue Central has been moved to a new host. Parts of the site may not work for you until everything syncs up (less than one day). If it continues past 8/4/13, please lease let me know of any problems.
8/1/13: ROGUELIKE RESTORATION PROJECT FORK v20130801 is now available! This release includes a cleaned-up SuperRogue, removed Rog-O-Matic, and corrects errors in documentation. Visit the Roguelikes page to get it. The updated Wizard Mode documentation, which includes information on SuperRogue and corrects errors in the format of the file, can be downloaded in the Docs & Spoilers section.
7/27/13: The difficult-to-find Epyx Rogue for Mac is now available! Visit the Download page to get it.
7/19/13: Rogue for BeOS added to Download page.
6/4/13: The Roguelike Restoration Project Fork was signed with a GnuPG key that I do not use with coredumpcentral.org. File signed again with the key available on coredumpcentral.org (see Contact page).
12/7/12: Added a link to the Roguelikes page.
ROGUELIKE RESTORATION PROJECT FORK BEGINS!
10/28/12: I have been doing a restructuring of different domains I own, and parts of coredumpcentral.org may be affected. Please report any dead links to the e-mail address listed in the "Contact" page.
9/7/12: After playing DiabloRL for the first time, I have decided not to add it to Rogue Central @ coredumpcentral.org due to its incomplete and inactive state. This leaves only the RRP games before I can finally remove all "Coming Soon"'s away from the site!
9/6/12: Added GBA Rogue to Downloads page.
7/13/12: The Diablo entry on the Roguelikes page has been added. DoomRL, DiabloRL, LetterHunt and the RRP Roguelikes will be added later.
4/29/12: The Roguelikes page is almost complete! Entries for NetHack, Angband, Mike's Adventure Game (MAG), Hack, and Castle of the Winds have been completed - see the Roguelikes page for downloads, information, spoilers, and links on these games. Entries for the Roguelike Restoration Project games, DoomRL, and LetterHunt have not been completed. Diablo and DiabloRL have been added to the list, though neither entry has been completed.
2/22/12: Added Sam Kaplan's "Winner's Guide To Rogue" v1.23 to Docs & Spoilers section, and updated the PC-Rogue Documentation Pack to include the file.
2/6/12: Added "strict port" of Rogue to the Mac to the Downloads page. Also added to Docs & Spoilers page is a link on how to hack this version to prevent deletion of saved games.
1/16/12: Besides being available for download here, the public key was listed as "available on all the major keyservers". To be safe, I changed this language to mention a specific keyserver (pgp.uni-mainz.de). Also, copyright dates at the bottom of the pages have been updated.
12/29/11: Several changes:
11/18/11: About Rogue page created with summary of Rogue and its history and influence.
11/17/11: "XZ" typos in 11/12/11 entry below fixed.
LINUXROGUE FOR DOS ADDITIONAL CHANGES:
10/27/11: I have changed the sidebar font from Fixedsys to Monospace and, according to BrowserShots.org, seems to look great under every screenshot there, with the exception of Dillo and some of the Konqueror screenshots. Regardless, there is nothing wrong with the functionality of the page, and I hope the new font looks better to those who were unable to view the page properly.
10/22/11: While setting up Linux to work on material for the site (see below), it came to my attention that Linux and other systems don't have the Fixedsys font, resulting in a non-monospaced mess for the screenshot at the top of the page. I have no idea how I got away with this on the original site - while it was part of a frames page, the screenshot was the same plain text with an assigned Fixedsys font. I probably did this due to my desire for compatibility with older systems, simplicity, a "retro" look, and/or then-poor browser support for CSS. So I replaced the screenshot above with a JPEG of what I expected it to look like. I will do this for the sidebar shortly. (Other than what I did when rebuilding the page, I will not be modernizing the old-school technology behind this page.)
10/15/11: Last week I reinstalled Slackware Linux v13.37 and was able to take care of the Linux material for the site. Here are the updates:
I discovered that there is a wizard mode in LinuxRogue (including my "LinuxRogue for DOS" port), which can be activated by pressing ^W. Since non-X Linux ttys don't seem to like ^BKSP (the command to create a new item), I will create a patch file before releasing documentation. Expect this (and a new packaging of the LinuxRogue material) within the next week or two.
10/6/11: Fixed trivial design issue. So trivial that the entry for this date was added on 10/15/11 along with the above updates.
9/20/11: RRP Rogue v5.2.1 DOS binary was mislabeled "Win32" - fixed name of download link. (Cygwin binary coming soon.) Changed all 'MS-DOS' references on the Download page to 'DOS'.
9/19/11: Restored version of the site published. Details:
