Greenius' Open Civil War Game

SourceForge Logo

The Civil War project makes the source code for Civil War: 1861-1864 developed by Greenius and originally published by Empire Interactive available under the Gnu General Public License so that bug fixes can be made and the project continued.

Possible side projects could be to port it to other systems (e.g. Linux) and to develop new scenarios

Please note that Empire Interactive are not directly involved with this project. Empire Interactive are the exclusive publishers of the original versions of these games. Files on the original game CDs are copyrighted and may not be copied or distributed without permission.

Current Status

Please go to the main project page at SourceForge for up to date information

The Civil War source is uploaded and compiles for DOS using Watcom C++. Some work has begun to make it more portable using the SDL library.

It is intended to set up build systems for other compilers such as Gnu/Cygwin.
