What is GnoBang?
GnoBang is a simple board game. The aim is to get 5 stones in a row that's all.
The game algorithm itself is rather simple and was never intended to be any good.
However it seems to play resonable well, so I never bothered to replace it with anything better.
Why did I write GnoBang?
GnoBang is a port of XmGoBang from Xm/Xt to Gtk+/Gnome.
The original XmGoBang was written back in 1995 as a motif programming exercise.
However it wasn't released until 2008, when I rediscovered it cleaning up some old folders.
Recently I decided it's about time to get familar with programming for the Gnome Desktop
using Glade, GTK+,
Automake. So I decided to simply port XmGoBang since I
wanted to write something "usefull".
Do you want to play online?
In 1996 I've had to learn java, so I've ported XmGoBang to java and created a java applet out of it.
This applet was called InetBang and is still available and you can play here: InetBang.
What platforms are supported?
GnoBang has been developed on a Fedora 8 system. It may build on linux
distributions or platforms, but I haven't tested it.
Do you still want to know more?
Well here is the README file.
