crossfire-client-0.95.4.tgz is the client distribution. Many bugfixes, no major improvements.

There is no sound file release for this version of the client - the sound files are unchanged fro version 0.95.2.

crossfire-0.95.4.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files. Again, many bugfixes.

crossfire-0.95.4.arch.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. I am not sure what changes are here because the order of my directories changed so the overall archetype file had the archs in a different order so I could not do a diff. In any case, if you are actually interested in this area, getting updates via CVS probably makes a lot more sense since if there were any changes, they were quite few.

crossfire-0.95.4-maps.tgz contains the maps. Some bug fixes made, a few new additions. Like the archs above, getting updates via CVS is probably the way to go.

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.

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://pyrsonal.pyrsonal.org/crossfire (
  • 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.cs.city.ac.uk/pub/games/crossfire/
  • ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/unix/games/crossfire (
  • ftp://ftp.cs.titech.ac.jp/pub/games/crossfire
  • ftp://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/games/roguelike/crossfire/

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