DxWnd lets you run many applications that default to fullscreen in a window, ideal for games. The program is a Win32 "hooker" program that intercepts and alters the behavior of window messages and APIs. It picks up events and injects code into the configured tasks to run fullscreen programs in a windowed environment while maintaining expected behavior.

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.

Wesnoth @ v1.12.6 : Maintenance Release

shnbwmn on 2018-05-13 16:30

I'm glad that Wesnoth made it to Steam. Hopefully the community will grow and attract more enthusiasts.

On an unrelated note, I still have the Wesnoth 0.8.8 setup file from 2004/05, only 32Mb. A game must be very good if over a decade later it is still endlessly playable :)

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.
