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.

    I forgot to adjust the version number in the game code
    'GAME.C'. I'ff fix that ASAP. For the other iI have to llok
    into 'code/endturn.c'. endturnMain(). I'l try to fix it with
    comment out a part of the code. Seems that the moves for the
    units aren't reset after all players made their moves.

    Version number is corrected. End of turn should work. But
    starts with the wrong players unit ?! have to take a closer
    look into it.

    Found the bug. Is fixed. Unfortunately I can't upload the
    code and the new executable, because m< Internet connection
    doesn't work for the moment.
    I hope, I can do that this weekend.
