Crossfire 0.95.8 Announcement

Crossfire 0.95.8 has been released. This release is mainly done to get a snapshot before the partial resistance code gets done. It should be fairly stable, but may not be as stable as some previous releases, but there have been a lot of bugfixes. A list of changes will be enclosed at the end of this file. Probably the most notable change is the addition of a race & class system.

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-0.95.8 is the client (X11) distribution - standard X11 and gtk interfaces are provided.

crossfire-0.95.8.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files.

crossfire-0.95.8.arch.tar.{gz/bz2} contains the unpacked archetype changes. This is not needed if you only want to compile the server and play the game.

crossfire-0.95.8-maps.tar.{gz/bz2} 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

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