  • Faster server input parsing
  • Many, many, many bug fixes

For a complete list of new features and bug fixes, please see the online ChangeLog on SourceForge.


Crossfire is available on SourceForge (and its various mirrors).

Binary packages are not yet available and will be released when they are ready.

'crossfire-client-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains the source distribution for the client. If you want to play, this is the only piece you need.

'crossfire-client-images-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains client images and graphics. This prevents the client from having to request image data from the server. It is optional but recommended if you have a slow Internet connection.

'crossfire-client-sounds-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains sound effects. This has changed since the 1.70.0 release. Of course, it is optional.

'crossfire-1.71.0.tar.bz2' contains the server source distribution as well aspre-generated archetype and image files. If you are running a server, you need this.

'crossfire-1.71.0.arch.tar.bz2' contains the unpacked archetypes and pixmaps. This is only required if you are planning to make changes to game objects and is not needed to run a server or play the game.

'crossfire-1.71.0.maps.tar.bz2' contains the map distribution. If you are running a server, you need this.
