Project Archived

Welcome to the project archive of the ARENA project as it was at the end of the winter semester 2002/03. If you are reading this on the project DVD, you already found the main entry point to the project archive.

From here you can access the complete project documentation, all communication on the BBoards, and the nightly builds. If your OS supports it, you can start SWORD directly from the DVD by double-clicking the latest build.

To access the Project Documents, click on 'Project Documents' under 'Resources'

To get the source code, put the directory /cvs_repository/arena into your local CVS repository. You can then check it out as the module arena . If you don't know how CVS works, have a look at the CVS home page

To play SWORD, get the latest build from 'Nightly Builds'.
