New game addin (REX Tafl)

Hello everyone!

I've finished the first release of REX Tafl, a board-game addin. Tafl is a group of medieval board games somewhat similar to chess, which were played in northern europe (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tafl). The game can be played both between two humans and against the computer, although the computer is fairly easy to beat.



The game addin and source code (GNU GPL) can be downloaded from

http://www.ipd.bth.se/ska/sim_home/rex_tafl.html


Note: I have only tested the game in the emulator (it should work on real hardware as well). The reason is that I do the development under Linux, and it was fairly easy to get the REX emulator running in qemu-emulated win98, but I haven't yet got the REX Tools to work in the emulator (it should be possible, but I made a mistake during the install).

If someone tries it, I would appreciate if the success or failure can be reported here or to me directly ([email protected]). Have fun!

Pkiff tested the game on a real REX and after some initial problems, I mailed him a new version which works (the first was slightly too large).

So the webpage now contains the updated version. Thanks to Philip for testing it!

I've been making some changes to the computer player to get him/her slightly smarter. These are still not in the binary though.

Hello again!

I've done some small updates to the Tafl game. The computer player should be slightly (slightly!) more intelligent than in the last version of the game and there is now a title image Smile

The most important change, however, is that I've ported/recompiled the game with SDCC / RxSDK (more on that in the next post), which has improved performance of the computer player fairly much. The game can be downloaded from:
