I'm alive again. I'm also re-thinking this project. Based on the apparent slow/lack of development on gtkatlantik and the discontinuation of development on monopd I may try to make this more compatible with the existing clients. Well see where we go.

OK. It's been a while. Blame it on health, alignment of the stars, neighbors dog, whatever you want. The PHP GTK team is working on PHP-GTK using GTK-2.6. I think I'll get back on this project when they release a new version. I've been trying to learn C, but it's been slow going. This isn't a forgotten project, just a postponed one.

Minor bugfix release. Fixed bug related to using PHP 5.x

0.3 is OUT!!!
After a lot of testing and a few fixes I'm finally ready to release 0.3. This has a working PHP_GTK client named gameclientgtk.php. The INSTALL included in the download tells you step by step how to compile and install PHP and PHP_GTK without the remote possibility of touching your production PHP. The interface is ugly but functional. It works fine for now.

PHP GTK client is DONE!!!! I haven't had enough time to test it as much as I need to so I haven't released it. However, it is in CVS for you early adapters. Fixed small bugs in the server programs as I found them. Look for a release very soon. Logo Support This Project
