Cytadela 1.0

Exactly four years after the initial public release, version 0.6, the final version is at last made available.

This version brings just the intro and outro movies and fixes equipment flickering bug present on some 32 bit systems.

This is the last version I'm publishing - from now on there won't be any improvements or bug fixes from my side. But as you know, the code is available under the GNU GPLv3 license, so it shouldn't be a big deal.... read more

Cytadela 0.9 finally released

At last, after several years of development, I can finally announce a fully playable conversion of the great Amiga game, Cytadela! This version, 0.9, brings all the levels of the original version with all in-game features.

* two info screens showing information about in-game controllers, created by Marcin 'Senkal' Sękalski (the screens are displayed before training levels)
* WASD keys as alternative keys for walking (forward/backward and strafe left/right)... read more

FarEditor available

As the version 0.7 of the Cytadela is almost complete, I've decided to release already finished FarEditor - a program that lets you manipulate .far files (Cytadela stores textures in .far files).
It is available only in source version (maby I will add also a binary version, but I'm not able to create a binary for windows).
Note that FarEditor uses GTK+ GUI so you need GTK+ libraries (and GTK+ development files in order to compile the program).
