The Official Cthugha FTP archive is maintained on a non-for-profit system with many users, so there are strict limits enforced. No more than a maximum of 25 anonymous FTP connections are allowed at one time for the entire site (which includes other material besides Cthugha, amazingly enough). If you get an error attempting to access anything in "ftp.afn.org" then chances are it's too busy. You can either wait a while and try again, or try a mirror site.
Thank you for your patience! :)
The most current versions of CTHUGHA released to the public are:
The packages available here are either for PC's (DOS/Windows 3.1, Win95, Linux), Apple Macintosh's (MacOS), or any Java-enabled platform (MacOS 8, some Unix platforms, any Java-enabled web-browser for any platform).
Most of these packages are compressed using either PKZIP 2.04g or a ZIP-compatible program. All .ZIP archives have been integrity tested and the contents virus scanned. The Macintosh packages are BinHexed StuffIt archives, and have also been integrity checked and virus scanned. The Linux packages are TAR archives compressed with GNUZip (good ol' gzip) and have been integrity checked. The Java package is uncompressed but has been hand-inspected and run to verify it contains no malicious or dangerous code.
Absolutely none of these programs are guaranteed bug-free in any way! Some of them are still very much in development.
Note! If you download an archive and find it is corrupted, contains a virus, or is in some other way defective, let me know immediately! I will attempt to verify and fix the problem as soon as I can. Thanks!
Note that this version runs well on later versions of windows too.
