The WinBolo source code is now available to download.

It can be downloaded from http://winbolo.googlecode.com or from http://www.winbolo.org

A wiki has been setup on http://www.winbolo.org

The source code includes the complete source code to WinBolo client & server, LinBolo client
& server, Tracker, Log viewer, WBN game ranking website, JBolo alpha/prototype,
WOME (CGI based map editor) and sample brains created.

A development forum has been setup.


----------------------

From the top level readme:

Here is the complete source code to WinBolo client & server, LinBolo client
& server, Tracker, Log viewer, WBN game ranking website, JBolo alpha/prototype,
WOME (CGI based map editor) and sample brains created.


License
=======
All source files code copyright 1998-2008 John Morrison and released under the
GNU GPL Version 2 except where noted. All graphic and sound files are copyright
1993 Stuart Cheshire.

Source code for WinBolo was taken from the 1.15 release possibly with additional
fixes.

Why?
====
I had always stated my main reason for not open sourcing WinBolo is that I still
had things I wanted to work on. I said that I would consider releasing it when I
wasn't interested in working on it any more. I've never lost interest in working
on WinBolo, however as life goes on I have come to accept the fact I will never
have enough time to work on the things I wanted to. Rather then let the community
die due to inaction from me I have decided to release the source to WinBolo and
all WinBolo related things.

I started this project 10 years ago. The first WinBolo release was 9 years ago.
This was my second "real" sized project in C. (WBN was my first PHP application
as well) - The code is fairly easy to follow and commented. Hopefully this allows
others to pick up the project and continue with it, or use it as a learning tool.

I have started a wiki at http://www.winbolo.org/ with more information on the
design, network protocol and file formats. A list of project ideas are also
listed there.



Thanks to
