What is XmGoBang?
XmGoBang 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 XmGoBang?
I've originally written this five in a row game in 1995 in order to get familiar with motif programming.
I rediscovered it cleaning up some old folders and was quite suprised that it perfectly builds and
runs on my linux box with lesstif. So I decided to release it under the GPL instead of letting it rot
in my hard drive.
Recently I ported it to the Gnome Desktop, for more details see GnoBang.
Do you want to play online?
In 1996 I've had to learn java, so I've ported it 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?
Back in 1995 I was able to build it on several Unix systems. However I didn't check anything other than
Linux, so it may no compile out of the box on other systems.
But I guess it should be resonable simple to compile it on other X11/Unix systems as long as LessTif
(or Motif) and libXpm are available.
Do you still want to know more?
Well here is the README file.
