What is it all about?!
Gemhun is all about grouping gems/stones of a chosen amount together which will then dissappear. There will be plenty of different game-modes, theme- and network-support. It is inspired by FrozenBubble/Tetris and some others.
!!! Note !!!
Remember to update your level-data (pax) according to your binary or cvs checkout! For example old pax ( before 2004-01-31 ) won't load into the current gemhun because of missing parts in the pax-description... could be better - I know :)
Gemhun release with pax-selection support :)2003-10-16
This one brings some easy pax-selection-support into your house :) It will scan it's two possible pax dirs and represent them at the titlescreen! See the screenshot "alternative titlescreen" from the 20031016 release for details. Note: You need to update your old pax dirs for screenshot support or download the updated files. Old pax can be played by the -tPaxDir argument but won't show up in the titlescreen... I'm already planning a fix for this... Also note that I've now compiled the linux binary under mdk 9.1 - my redhat7 produces some unuseable binaries. Don't ask me why...

Gemhun release with theme-pax (pax = packages) support!2003-10-12
* First ticker-entry =) * Not only that I've finally managed to setup a website for this - haha! - I've also made the theme-engine-api ( called pax ) somewhat stable. In other words, this game runs fine on my two mdk 9.1 boxes, on my girlfriends box ( amd k6-2 450mhz / mdk 8.2 ) and some others. Give it a try!
