I was a huge XEvil fan back when it was still being developed - things just kind of trickled off after 2.02.r2 (available in the experimental builds folder on the XEvil developer's page at www.xevil.com). One of my friends is going to do some general updating to the code to modernise it, so who knows...
XEvil Graphics and Network Play
Thanks for posting XEvil, Peter.
I just want to point out the two huge differences between XEvil 2.0 and XEvil 1.5, which currently ships with Red Hat and several other Linux distributions:
True client/server network play, including the ability to set up dedicated XEvil servers. xevil.notgod.com is one such server.
Completely new, hi-resolution, full-color graphics, using XPM images. Double the resolution of XEvil 1.5, but with the option to play at the old resolution.
And, of course, there are new characters, weapons, items, and levels.
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
