Re: Status of xfire. Client/server 3d.

 I have done some work on the client/server.  I will probably be making
a new release of crossfire within a week or two, and it will include the
work I have done on it.  So after that comes out, take a look at that
code, and send me mail on what area you want to work on.

 I can't see a 3D version being any faster than the current version if
you use fonts with the current version.  Unless you use just simple
line drawing for the 3D effect.

 Also, going from 2D to 3D changes game play considerably.  In 3D mode,
you have forward vision with limited side vision.  in present mode,
you have all around vision.

 Also, handling a client/server version of 3D would be a lot different
than the 2D model.  Also, 3D would require rewrites in major portions
of the code.

 3D would be neat to see, but I am not sure how feasible it is.
