Custom Wars: Putting you in the game.

Style [Main | Blue]

Before downloading, it would probably be good to mention something.
Custom Wars requires Java; at least version 1.5.0. which can be downloaded here.
If you use Mac OS X; Unless you are using 10.4 (Tiger) or above, the newest version of Java you will be able to use is 1.4.2, which is NOT the latest version. So, unless you have Tiger, you're outta luck.

Custom Wars is open-source. And unless you know what you're doing with compiling Java, it's best to download the already-compiled version. The source isn't very helpful if your only intent is to play the game.

The latest stable version is: Beta 27.

-Animation canceling works more consistently.
-Carriers can build/launch now (there's a graphical issue with launching, -- -the launch area persists after firing. Press B to cancel out.)
-Moving units no longer have piercing vision (except for the spyplane)
-Fixed the atrocious filtering of Copper Sun and Cobalt Drift
-Added a manual for easy reading.
-Memento fixed!
-The unload bug discovered by Tails is fixed!
-The lobby auto-refreshes every 10 seconds (turn it on under options!) I'm not sure how much the server can take, but I might tweak it down to 5 second/2 seconds, or something where it refreshes often for the first 2 minutes, then down to once a minute. Is there a way to get the window to flash if there's a message?
