Crossfire 0.95.5 Announcement

Crossfire 0.95.5 has been released. There are a lot of bug fixes as well as some improvements/new features. The complete changelog is at the end of thie file. This archive should basically be the same as the 3/21/2000 nightly archive. This is not bug free, but all outstanding reported bugs to me are fixed to the best of my knowledge.

NOTE: The primary ftp location has changed. I have put up old versions of the client and client sounds at the new location, so that everything can be found in one place.

There is no client or sound release - neither of those have and substantial changes from previous releases.

crossfire-0.95.5.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files. Again, many bugfixes.

crossfire-0.95.5.arch.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. Some new archetypes, some modifications - nothing really major, but enough to warrant a new archive.

crossfire-0.95.5-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.

crossfire-0.95.5.doc.tar.gz contains preformatted documentation. In this, you get the postscript spoiler and handbook, but you also get the html versions of both of those files with all the needed graphics - this is the only archive that has all the graphics pre-made.

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.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 ftp.scruz.net - it should be on the other ftp sites in a short time.
