Open source version

From its early days on the C64 and VIC-20, the "remake" for the PC and Mac, or all-new version which is now available on the iTunes App Store (http://bit.ly/8MDq3N)

Open source version

Postby farvardin » Wed Jun 16, 2010 7:40 am

Hello,

there used to be the source code for the 1st release of Sword of Fargoal at this URL: http://fargoal.com/downloads/SwordofFargoalPC.zip
It was then possible to play it natively on Linux.

Is it still available somewhere else in the latest version?

Yeah, you can download it from here: http://www.greatgamesexperiment.com/game/fargoal

I'm not sure why it's not linked up on the fargoal website anymore... must have gotten lost in the shuffle.

the link from http://www.greatgamesexperiment.com/download/7118/ is pointing to the missing file on http://www.fargoal.com

I found a file on sourceforge : http://sourceforge.net/projects/squidfighter/files/ (fargoal20040629.zip) but I don't know if it's older or newer than the version which was on fargoal.com

Argh...

The Sourceforge one would be the most recent anyway, so yeah go for that.

thank you for the advice. Meanwhile, I found the old archive on my hard drive, and it seems it's the same files and codes in it.
