I managed to run the game on win98 (after installation
of sdl.dll). Although the download claimed to be version
0.0.8, the program showed version 0.0.74.
At first I was not sure which buttons to push or what
the goal of the game was, but after reading the
documentation it became clear.
I was assigned to be blue, but after the first [enter] the
program never returned for my next move. Instead the
red cursor stayed on a gray ship, and I could do nothing.
Pressing [enter] seems to go to the next move, but the
cursor stays at a gray, unmovable, ship.
I had a quick look at the source code. I had hoped for a
more documented file with a structure as described in
the documentation. (Maybe I looked in the wrong files,
but it is difficult to debug.)
I will take a look if I can compile the code in Linux to see
if the same error occurs.
