Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

btw nowadays wesnoth is at 1.10.- instead of 1.8 so the information is invalid.

darkest on 2012-02-24 18:07

revering to the version number, that is. (sorry for double-posting)

By the author of Ubiquitous Player:

I've decided to stop updating this program. In 3 years I received exactly zero feedback on it, so I guess no one really uses it.

Thanks.

shnbwmn on 2016-05-17 21:37

So ... is this program being actively developed again now?

MIKLO on 2016-08-23 14:32

WOW this is still being updated I'm surprised but anytime someone is willing to improve their software 4me its a good thing. I used this some time back it does a lot of things but to me is just way to busy although it did work well when I used. :)

Apparently UniExtract got into an infinite loop when I tried to extract the installer. I have edited the instructions a bit.

lintalist on 2015-04-27 12:36

For v2.5.0: I don't think civclient.exe is present anymore and it should now be freeciv-gtk2.cmd or freeciv-gtk2.exe which would start the game.
