Late last night I decided to stop production on Canasta. That’s because I decided it was worthy enough of a 1.0 release. So that’s exactly what I did, closed it up and threw it in a zipped up folder for the world to play around with.
Canasta 1.0 (May 5, 2017)
My only regret about it right now is that I didn’t do as many “tool tips” and a real proper read-me file to accompany the game. My only suggestion, if you’re going to try and play it, is to google rules to Canasta and get a feel for how the game is played. Rules to this are a bit different but for the most part, they’re relatively the same. I’ll try and include something in the near future, but can’t guarantee anything at this time.
Feel free to comment to this (or any) post or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll do my best to help you out.
Back to planning…

Holy crap I finished something.
I’m proud to announce that 1.0 of Traders is up for grabs, here.
– unzip the folder to desired location on your computer.
– locate file “config.exe”, run it. I recommend “standard32.dll” as that’s what I’ve developed/tested with.
– open up “engine.exe” and select “Server-Traders”. This is the server portion of the game, only one player needs to run the server. Once the server is ran, it’ll display an Address for the clients to connect to.
– For each player they need to run the “Client-Traders”. Logins are mandatory, however, a new account is simply made by logging in with a unique username and password, it accepts the password as is and creates an account, next time you try to play a new game, the password will have to match to use that id.
– game may not work with anything but Windows XP, I don’t have anything else to test with, so use caution as it may not function correctly.
Rules are not included in with the game as it is a fan game of Catan.
I have not gotten permission to release this game or the creation of this game. This game is not for sale nor is it closed sourced. Enjoy at your own risk.
