I tried to make the instructions as clear as possible, I didn't upload the whole shebang because it was too large. I just don't get why whoever runs the Bos Wars website hasn't made a windows version more easily available.

We could release our own version of Bos Wars for Windows, although the binary you provided doesn't have the MSVC dlls imbedded.

There's always been a strong undercurrent of Windows hate within the Stratagus Dev community.

Shirley, times are changing?

Just to clarify, is BOS Wars 2.7 now able to be run on everyone's windows computers? If it isn't I would be glad to help correct that.

Could you compile a release binary? Right now it requires debug libraries.

I am so sorry to make you dizzy guys, but I don't even know how to install bos wars 2.7 on a Linux dual boot PC.
I just use the software center, and it is outdated

Ok, I'm sorry that I have been a bit spotty with this. I don't know if I will ever be super reliable, but what if the debug dlls were to be included in the links? Would that be permissible, in my mind this would work fine. But I could be missing a vital piece of information about the subject. Someone else in the forum mentioned that they could be easily found by Googling, but no one posted a download link. I'm in no position to criticize this, it simply makes me wonder if there is an issue with this solution.
