When you end up pulling up the old archives, could I please be CC'ed on it as well? I recall playing CF on my old Slackware3 box years back, and while it was color, it was very different.

Thanks!

Yes, I do remember that I only ran one command to start the game...

As for what I'm looking for, I liked the old maps (when I tried
playing later, found the new maps kinda sprawling), the old graphics,
and the old gameplay... It's all probably nostalgia but I liked it
better when there were fewer classes and just generally fewer options
:)

I have all the versions (well, at least going back to the 0.89s I think) on
my computer and can dig them up at some point.

Note that even XPM mode were color, though for quite a while that existed
side by side with the XBM mode which were two color.

A question would be what exactly are you looking for in those old versions?
The retro graphics, old maps, old gameplay, etc?

The old versions did not have a separate client, though I would expect that
the old server should compile without much difficulty.  I can't recall
anything too platform specific.  The biggest problem might be deprecated
function calls in the various libraries.

Sounds like you are looking for source code that was in place before
Crossfire started to use revision control (originally cvs from 1999 to
2006, now svn.) So, it is not possible to cvs/svn revert back to the XPM
days.

Looking back at my collected archive or releases, I don't have anything
before 0.97.0 -- it was before I became involved with the project.

You can dig up crossfire 0.95 out of the debian archive -
http://archive.debian.org/debian/dists/Debian-2.1/main/source/games/ - which
is a bit before the start of the sourceforge CVS history.

I'm under the impression that crossfire made it into the FreeBSD releases
before it got picked up by most of the Linux distributions, so it may be
possible to pull older versions out of those archives if one is so inclined.
