Barrage 1.0.3 Released

I started to dislike the rather violent touch of the game and changed the concept a little: You are now on a shooting range and all the targets including the soldiers are dummies. Gameplay remains the same. Furthermore, the Linux user name is now default for highscore entry name (patch by PJin) and XDG support has been added. [end]

LBreakout 2.6.2 Released

LGeneral 1.2 Released

Never say never... After so many years LGeneral is no longer beta. :-) The major feature of this release is a prestige-based purchase option as in Panzer General (just slightly different) as a workaround / fix for the long open reinforcements issue. I finally gave up the idea of having predefined reinforcements (too little time and too much work to get these balanced). Further improvements are easier use of the converter, beautifications, gameplay tweaking and fixes for minor gameplay, compilation and memory issues. [end]

LBreakout 2.6.1 Released

Some minor fixes: All sounds now have sample rate 22050 to prevent poor on-the-fly conversion of cheap sound cards. Fixed a bug that cut the first few entries from the level set list in the menu (so you have more to play now! :-). Some english typos have been fixed by Colin Tucker and the quick help now has text with proper transparency. [end]

LBreakout 2.6 Released

The reason why this release has been beta for a long time is that I intended to rewrite the network code from scratch. Unfortunately, I did not find the time to complete this task and by now I don't think I will ever dig into it again. But the current solution should be good enough for LAN play. So this release provides just minor enhancements and fixes mostly related to compiling and configuration. Apart from that there is now a better French localization, all currently available level sets are included and the game should appear in the menu of the desktop environment on installation (via XDG support). I have also added a hidden option to disable the swearing on loosing a ball by default. It can only be enabled by manually editing the config file (explained in the README). So now it is fully suitable for children. [end]

LTris 1.0.13 Released

Minor stuff: French and swedish localization added, highscore charts are now language independent (previously an all new chart was created if language changed) and the 'block shadow' (to help aiming) is now enabled by default. Note: The chart fix will create new highscore charts for all game types but the old ones remain in the highscore file. Thus you can manually edit it to restore them. [end]

Having a few more days break at home than initially planned (I just came back from my first trip to Dhammagiri in India) I will try to release all the things that are idling on my laptop's harddisc to get LGames into a consistent state again. As a first step I cleaned up and reordered the project's files list for more clarity and uploaded a few old (mostly unfinished) projects (games and libraries) into a new folder called 'mindnoise' . They are no longer under development but may be interesting anyway. [end]
