Crossfire 0.95.6 Announcement

Crossfire 0.95.6 has been released. There are a lot of bug fixes as well as some improvements/new features. An abreviated list of changes is at the end of this file.

Note - the mailing lists for crossfire have changed. This is the last announcement message that will be sent via crossfire-announce@ifi.uio.no address. Future announcement messages will be sent through the real-time address. To get on the subscription list for that, go to:


Or you should be able to go to:

It should be set up shortly to allow subscription to all the lists.

NOTE TO MIRROR SITES: The primary site (ftp.scruz.net) has limited download bandwidth per day. If this poses a problem, you want a more reliable method, or you just want a backup method. please drop me a mail message - I have set up a secondary server off my ADSL link, but being that only has 128 kb upstream bandwidth and is also used for other interactive purposes, I don't want to make it available to all.

crossfire-client-0.95.6 is the client (X11) distribution - standard X11 and gtk interfaces are provided.

crossfire-0.95.6.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files.

crossfire-0.95.6.arch.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. This is not needed if you only want to compile the server and play the game.

crossfire-0.95.6-maps.tgz contains the maps. This is needed with the server distribution.

No doc archive at this time - I don't believe anything in it should have changed much.

FOR FIRST TIME USERS: You will only need the appropriate server, map and client file. You do not need the arch file. If you are a first time user, you may want the doc file unless you are using a web based player referance.

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

If you are looking for a windows/NT client, look at:
ftp://ftp.ifi.uio.no:/pub/crossfire/incoming (
for a file called cfcXXXX.zip (XXXX are numbers representing the version - get the latest)

Crossfire is avaible on the following ftp sites

ftp://ftp.scruz.net:/users/mwedel/public (
ftp://ftp.ifi.uio.no:/pub/crossfire (

*** NOTE *** primary server has changed to pyrsonal, and this will likely be the primary for quite a while to come.

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

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