Description:

There is now binary packages for several distributions thanks to the OpenSuSE Build Service. See the links below. If there is no package for your distribution, it's probably because it does not currently contains KNewStuff3 while the current (20100717) version of KsirK depends on it.

The KDE 4.2 version of KsirK corrected a lot of bugs but moreover it had new features:
- playing over the Jabber network (Gmail protocol);
- a skin editor. Now if you can create (or gather) SVG graphics, you can easily create new skins;
- Hot New Stuff support. You can easily download and install new skins.


To build the KDE4 preview version, you must have the KDE4 libkdegames package installed with its development package. Then
* download and extract the archive;
* cd in the newly created dir ;
* mkdir build
* cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KDEDIR .. (where $KDEDIR is where KDE4 is installed)
* make
* install with the appropriate root rights
* run ksirk (or ksirkskineditor)

For bugs reports, please no comment here but at bugs.kde.org

If you want to play network games with others, connect with your jabber account and reach the room ksirk@conference.kdetalk.net


KsirK still needs YOU ! I'd like to receive:
- play network games with you;
- comments;
- bug reports (well, I wouldn't like but they would be useful !);
- help for new skins ;
- code if you'd like.

Happy World Conquest !

Yes, I just had a look at it. That could be a good starting point.

Thanks

Can I suggest to drop the animated flags? They are distracting and they probably slow down the rendering.

Also, how am I supposed to attack from one side of the map to the other? E.g. from Alaska to Asia. I think you should give the option to select attacking countries with another mouse click, maybe via right-clik / "Attack from this country to...".

Sorry, I just rechecked the distribution and saw that it lacks all images... I verified the that compilation was OK but did not check the installation... Shame on me !

I corrects that as soon as possible.

Please download the 1.2beta1-2 archive.

Sorry again...

It is easy to crash the program. when you start a new game and it prompts you for the name of the players, just keep hitting escape. it will sig and crash on you.
