I would really appreciate any help or suggestions on what Rom to use.
Some information about me. I'm running windows 7 64 bit if it matters. I do not know how to program or write code. My interest is to mess around and tweak a race or class to better understand the ROM codebase. I really like ROM.
If you're not dead set on the original C version of rom, you can download Pyom and check it out. To get it up and running you just download/install python 3 from python.org for Windows. Once you have it installed, I'd suggest using command prompt (windows key + r, 'cmd'), using pip to install psutil (eg, if you installed for all users it'd be 'c:\Python34\Scripts\pip.exe install psutil')
After that, navigate to the directory then run pyom using C:\Python34\python.exe pyom.py It'll boot up on local host, port 1337, connect and your first character will be auto imp level.
