Hi Andrew,

When you refer to DOS version I suppose you're actually talking about
Windows (while it makes no real difference to me, but... ;))

Well, actually these Windows binaries are rather a first alpha-test than
anything. Too many things are hard-coded (like the game directory) and I
can't guarantee it will 100% work for now (OTOH, we got several
successes reports, and Windows is known to be far more uniform than
Unixes, so I guess if you follow Kai's instructions you should be able
to make it).

But if you prefer comfort, you might want to wait a little bit for the
next release. It's a matter of (a few) weeks, and it will have full
Windows support, a nice installer, and an option to double the size of
the screen ;) Ah, not to mention nicer fonts, and translations
(hopefully) in several languages other than English.

Still, it's nice to see that my crappy binaries already have success (I
only fear that Windows downloads will overcome Unix ones in less than
one week when we release... Oh we really gotta spread some Free Software
propaganda with the Windows binaries, definitely ^_^)

See you,
(so, we stopped talking Tolkienish? ;))
