XRK: brief intro
XRK is a project started a long time ago, in and old & glorious Amiga 500,
using GFA BASIC!
The DOS version have remained basically unchanged from 1992, and some times
ago I have (slowly!) started to mess again a bit with the source and
docs to make some modification.
Since it's a very old project, the old version will remain available for
download. v1.36 is just the historic v1.35 with some docs update (minor
errors, new addresses, etc.)
In time, newer versions will become available here.

Here's a video that show XRK's demo running under DOSBox:
And here's a demo of the network mode, to share the workload of a tournament among various PCs:
XRK v1.50.1, 291KB ZIP NEW!!!
XRK v1.36, 318KB ZIP
v1.50.1 - 23/04/2012
After a long time, I have reworked the documentation a bit. It's now in English, and both
in TXT and HTML format. The packing.txt file has been removed, and the CoreWar.txt
tutorial haven't yet been translated.
Experimental Beta - 27/05/03
XRS/32 v1.68 & XRC/32 v1.71
First beta of the Win32/Console port of the simulators (simple & tournament).
Speedup of about 200% and more are common.
v1.50 - 01/11/02
All executables require just an 8086 CPU, for compatibility with emulators and palmtops.
PocketDOS emulator on WinCE tested and confirmed running with no problems.
Error messages now have a customizable structure. Using the XRA assembler with any
programmer editor is simpler.
XRC & XRS
Fixed a bug that could lead to strange results using the standard (random)
allocation, if both warriors were identical.
Better performance in Quad-View graphic mode. Speedup from 10% to 20%.
Some correction in the docs.
Addedd email addresses and homepage in README.TXT.
v1.36 - 21/11/01
Docs fixed, mainly author's mail & postal addresses.
Removed file LED.TXT.
Just some light modifications, so version number remain the same.
Keep in mind that the whole package was updated for the last time in 1996, and
it was started in 1992. When a 486 was a beast of a machine! :)
