<h3 id="_what_is_crossfire">1.1. What is Crossfire?</h3>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Crossfire is a free, open-source, cooperative multi-player RPG and adventure
game. Since its initial release, Crossfire has grown to encompass over 150
monsters, 3000 areas to explore, an elaborate magic system, 13 races, 15
character classes, and many powerful artifacts scattered far and wide. Set
in a fantastical medieval world, it blends the style of Gauntlet, NetHack,
Moria, and Angband.</p></div>

<div class="sectionbody">
<div class="sect2">
<h3 id="_system_requirements">2.1. System Requirements</h3>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Crossfire should run on any machine with an ANSI C compiler installed. To
date, it has been known to work on Linux, BSD, Windows, Solaris, and Mac.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In order to build the server, a copy of the game archetypes must be unpacked
or linked in the "lib/arch" directory. This can be deleted once the build is
finished, but keeping a copy around won&#8217;t hurt. Perl is required to generate
the final archetype files, but is not needed after the build is complete.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In order to run the server, a copy of the game maps is also required.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>In addition, there are a number of optional dependencies that make the game
even more fun. These include:</p></div>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
Support for dynamically loaded libraries. Most modern operating systems
should have it. This is needed for server plugins.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Python 2.4 or later - this is needed for the Crossfire Python plugin
(CFPython) and is <strong>highly</strong> recommended. Most maps, quests, and NPCs will
not work without it.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
SQLite3 - for cflogger and cfnewspaper. These plugins are still under
development and aren&#8217;t very useful at the moment.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Check - for unit tests. This is required for plugin developers, but mostly
useless to normal users.

<div class="paragraph"><p>Crossfire runs on a client/server model.  You will also need the client to
play.  You can either connect to a server someone else has set up, or run
your own server and connect to that.  The client package has information for
connecting to servers.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>To run your own server, you need to make the crossfire binaries and install
them, and then run the crossfire-server program.  This creates a server
that you and other people can connect to.  The map files must be downloaded
and installed for the server to run properly.  They should be unpacked in
the <em>$(TARGET)/share/crossfire</em> directory - after unpacking, you should have a
<em>$(TARGET)/share/crossfire/maps</em> directory.  Alternatively, maps in that
location may be a sym-link that points to a different folder.</p></div>

<h3 id="_reporting_bugs">5.1. Reporting Bugs</h3>
<div class="paragraph"><p>First, check the INSTALL file for common problems, and see if yours is
mentioned.</p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>Bugs should be filed in the Crossfire bug tracker on SourceForge:
<a href="http://sourceforge.net/p/crossfire/bugs/">http://sourceforge.net/p/crossfire/bugs/</a></p></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>When reporting bugs, make sure you include the following:</p></div>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
If you have a sourceforge login, make sure you are logged in.  This way,
    if there are questions about the bug, you will be notified about the
    request for more information.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
What version of crossfire did you use?
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
What type of computer did you use (CPU type)
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
What is the version of the OS?
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
What compiler (and its version) did you use (ie, gcc, icc, etc)?
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Which flags did you give it?
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If the bug happens when compiling crossfire, send an EXACT copy of the
    compiler line, as well as the errors it puts out.  Sending bugs of the
    sort <em>it failed with a line like &#8230;</em> doesn&#8217;t help at all.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If you are using any of the plugins, what version(s) of Python and SQLite
    do you have installed?
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If the bug happened while running crossfire:
</p>
<div class="ulist"><ul>
<li>
<p>
Include any output before to the bug.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
Give a description of what you did before the bug occurred.  The better
      detailed the description, the better chance we have of figuring out
      where the bug happened, or how we can recreate the bug.
</p>
</li>
<li>
<p>
If possible, a stack trace from gdb (or other debugger) is very helpful.
</p>
</li>
</ul></div>
</li>
</ul></div>
<div class="paragraph"><p>The more information provided, the better chance of the bug being fixed in
a timely fashion.</p></div>
