dopewars is a game where you make a fortune dealing drugs on the streets of New York...
dopewars is a free Unix/Win32 rewrite of a game originally based on "Drug Wars" by John E. Dell. The idea of dopewars is to deal in drugs on the streets of New York, amassing a huge fortune and paying off the loan shark, while avoiding the ever-annoying police.
The Unix/Win32 rewrite, as well as featuring a so-called "antique" mode which closely follows the original, introduces new features such as the ability to take part in multi-player games. dopewars aims to be highly configurable, and what you can't change in the configuration files you can change by poking around in the source, which is freely available under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
dopewars runs on Unix (e.g. Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X) systems and Win32 (Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, ME, XP).
A framework for writing AI clients for dopewars with Perl (and a simple example client) is available courtesy of Dave Madison here. A version of dopewars which implements an improved AI, using a behaviour-based architecture, is also available.
A version of dopewars written in Python is in development by Mike Meyer. The aim of this version is to enable dopewars to be run easily on other platforms (such as MacOS and Windows) and to greatly simplify the development of computerised dopewars players.
The author would really appreciate assistance from keen Python programmers in getting the code to run cleanly on both Linux and Windows systems!
dopewars is also an IRC bot! To play a game, connect with any IRC client to the IRC server at irc.irc-hispano.org. Then start a game by entering the command
/msg WaRZ jugar or /msg BRoK jugar
...and then accept the DCC-CHAT. WaRZ is a space-trading themed version, while BRoK is a share-dealing version.
What's New in This Release:
This release corrects a potential exploit against the Windows server, which was not fully patched by the 1.5.11 release.
