This is a truly great game! It's highly addictive and the ability to play the game online on one of the many servers (http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk/~ben/cgi-bin/serverlist.pl) is an essential part of the gaming experience. For those of us without the luxury of a permanent internet connection and/or flatrate it is also possible to play this in single player mode.
Drug dealing has never been more fun (although it is possible to remove all drug references, if you're a concerned parent)!
The time needed for a session of dopewars can vary depending on the configuration of the respective Dopewars server.
There's a built-in bot, a perl bot (http://freshmeat.net/projects/daive/) and a Python client (http://www.mired.org/home/mwm/wars/) available. What more can you possibly want?
Great script (+warning)
This is a great script, especially if you like having your lunchbreak in front of your workstation.
Thanks a lot to Andrew Medico for making this.
Just to make your life easier (and v1.0.11 and newer warn you for this), make sure that
you run this script on a place that is not
accessable to the internet (use .htaccess to shield it for example) since this will probably result in a copyright violation.
It took me about 2 retrievals to get the people behind "The Thin H Line" to scream cease and desist.
Be warned, but still go and install this now on your workstation and enjoy a great script.
