- Description: Glest is a 3D fantasy realtime strategy game.
- Comments: Nice graphics but no multiplayer mode yet.
The game is not big-endian friendly and the big endian patch is not finished. It is published in its current state as a patch the upstream CVS (as of 2006-01-06). Unfortunately I will not have access to a powerpc/big endian machine starting soon (probably next week) so I can't continue with this.
another patch against the CVS version appeared at http://www.powerdeveloper.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=6675; the patch is merged in the trunk of our repo, but is disabled for now until we get a confirmation that it works.
Upstream has switched to svn
The SuSE package contains some interesting patches backported from upstream trunk
a fork of the project named glevolution exists; it appears the reason is that the upstream glest is stale and original team doesn't accept contributions nor new team members
the download section of glevolution contains a lot of nice things like translations and save operation
* add the translations from glevolution * look over the patches from the suse package and see what could be made a part of the game * look over the patches from glevolution and see what can be included
