A new file release is now available at:
or you can get to it by clicking on the "Downloads" link on the Xconq
Below is a repeat of the "executive summary" changelog:
Several major improvements are in this release:
(1) The heavy CPU usage by the Tcl/Tk interface has been addressed.
(2) The scaling of terrain images has been greatly improved. (Thanks to
Matthew Skala for his patches dealing with this.)
(3) The color scheme for the Tcl/Tk interface has been greatly improved
by most accounts. Also, several menus have been renamed.
(4) A new set of unit images is now used as the default in the Default game.
The AWLS, Opal, and Starfleet Battles families of games have all been
improved by their creator, Elijah Meeks.
A bug in the 3rd Age of Middle Earth game has been fixed. The bug,
reported by Kevin O'Gorman, had prevented ships from returning to a port.
Fixes to some unit vision and network game bugs are currently in
progress, but not ready for this prerelease. There will be another
prerelease when the network issues have been sorted out.
Note to Windows users: The program with "SETUP" in all uppercase letters
and ending in ".exe" is an installer program which will install Xconq on
Note to people installing from RPM packages: The 'common' package is a
prerequisite to the other packages; it contains parts of Xconq in common
to the interfaces, such as documentation and the games library. You must
have this package in order to install one of the interface packages. The
interface packages are: 'tcltk', 'sdl', and 'curses'. You will need to
install at least one of them to actually play Xconq.
