Development Update

As most of you that visit frequently know, we have released 7KAA patch version 2.13.2.  This version hopefully fixes the most annoying problems for Windows users.  If you haven’t already, go to the download site and get it!

There is an on-going development branch for a version series called 2.14.xx.  Thanks to many people that have contributed so far.  The current thing slated for the first release in the new series is the ability to port the game from DirectX to alternative APIs such as SDL.  There won’t be a stable release from 2.14 while this is all worked out. I will post a follow-up article asking for help in key areas in the future.

  1. Love you all. Fantastic, classic game.

  2. Hey, does this fix old network issues?
    I remember when I played the original there were some syncing issues that made it unplayable after about 3-4 hours.

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Just wanted to say thank you for working on patches of the game! I still love it. Also like The Frytan Wars.
    Very cool to know there’s a community of this old game ^^

  4. I searched in the forums and the wiki and I haven’t found my answer, so I’ll ask:
    Do I need the original game of 7kaa or just the files from SourceForge?

    You do not need the original game. Just as on the forum for anymore help.

    The old network issues aren’t gone yet. The network code has to be rewritten, so it is the hardest thing to do right now.
