client-0.95.2.tgz is the client distribution. Many bugfixes, no major improved.

cleint-0.95.2-{raw/au}-sounds are the sounds for the client. The au sounds are not changed since the last server release of the sounds - it just made sense to note there are some for the client. The raw files are needed if using the new client sound code - they are converted au files. The raw files are only really needed if you are using the ALSA sound system. If you lack sound, there is no reason to get either of the sound files.

crossfire-0.95.2.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files.

crossfire-0.95.2.arch.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. The main changes here are the gods/temple additions.

crossfire-0.95.0-maps.tgz contains the maps. All the exceptional work Anthony and others have been should be in this release.

FOR FIRST TIME USERS: You will only need the appropriate server, map and client file. You do not need the arch file.

If you just want to play the game at some remote server, you need the client and perhaps some version of the doc file.

Crossfire is avaible on the following ftp sites

ftp.pyramid.com:/pub/crossfire (
ftp.ifi.uio.no:/pub/crossfire (

ftp.real-time.com/pub/games/crossfire (
ftp.sunet.se:/pub/unix/games/crossfire (

I uploaded this version to just ftp.pyramid.com - it should be on the other ftp sites in a short time.
