Alternate Image Set

The main set vs alternate set is all about what images people like better.

As of right now, there doesn't appear to be a 100% right answer (some prefer images in the main set better than the corresponding images in the alternate set, and vice versa).

On the server end, just do the following:

  1. download the cvs arch alternate_images
  2. run the program filename_changer
  3. create a link in crossfire/lib/ from alternate_images to crossfire/lib/alternate_images
  4. make collect
  5. make install

OR from the client perspective of:

  1. download the cvs alternate images.
  2. copy them into ~/.crossfire/gfx - may need to create directory first
  3. run your client.

The client will use the images it finds in the gfx directory in preferance to those on the server. This also means it won't need to download any images from the server.

See the difference with some of the Alternate Images vs Standard Images (more to be added later..)
