(Note - only the maps have a bzip2 compressed archives. For the other files, there isn't a big enough difference in size to make it worth while IMO)

Note 2: i386 version of RPM's will likely show up shortly.

crossfire-client-1.11.0.tar.gz contains the client code - if you only want to play, this is the only piece you need. If you don't want to compile, may want to grab RPMS.

crossfire-client-images-1.11.0.tar.gz contains prebuilt images - this removes the need to download most of them when playing with cached images.

crossfire-client-sounds-1.11.0.tar.gz contains sounds - if you don't want sounds, you don't need this. There is no change in this file from the 1.10 release, so if you already have the 1.10 sound files, no reason to download these.

crossfire-1.11.0.tar.gz contains the server code with prebuilt archetype and image files.

crossfire-1.11.0.arch.tar.gz contains the unpacked archetype changes. This is not needed if you only want to compile the server and play the game.

crossfire-1.11.0.maps.tar.{bz2|gz} contains the map distribution - this is the bigworld map.

FOR FIRST TIME USERS: You will only need the server, map, and client archives. You do not need the arch archive.

If you just want to play the game at some remote server, you need the client and perhaps the image archive file (older image file is still good enough).

Crossfire is available on the following ftp sites


  • ftp://ftp.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/crossfire


  • ftp://ftp.real-time.com/pub/games/crossfire

The initial upload of this release is only made to sourceforge - it should show up on the mirrors shortly.
