  • Freeciv works on Windows [freeciv.org]. Aren't you happy, now? :)

    I've had a couple of great Freeciv cross platform LAN parties involving Debian, RedHat, and multiple versions of Windows. Make a universal install CD you can give to people when they arrive, including the Windows version (don't forget an unzip utility in case they don't have one, and don't screw up like me and include an unzip that doesn't handle long filenames), the source code, and maybe the GTK/Glib sources in case somebody actually doesn't have them

    • Wheee... :o) late hour, no problem, we used to play Quake from 1800 to about 0700 in the morning (with plenty of breaks in between for food :o)

      I thought I saw the link, but I probably downloaded the wrong client (the one that requires an X server).. At least I know its possible now :o) yay!! :o) (yes, I'm happy now, thank you :D)

      Aah, on the subject of LAN parties, there was one time when a friend brought a laptop over, we were bored, didn't have serial links.. so this guy, being an ingenious bloke, actually took a network cable off the cable modem, took a kitchen knife, and *converted* the darn thing to work as a serial cable... YOW! (why didn't we go and buy something, you ask.. well, it was past midnight when we started ;o) and he had a plane to catch the following morning)..

      In the meantime, I found Civ Evolution [c-evo.org] yesterday, which seems to be pretty close..

      • Just to clarify, there is in fact another Windows client that does not require X.
