Bos Wars is a futuristic real time strategy game (RTS).

In a RTS game, the player has to combat his enemies while developing his war economy. Everything runs in real-time, as opposed to turn-based games where the player always has to wait for his turn. The trick is to balance the effort put into building his economy and building an army to defend and attack the enemies.

Bos Wars has a dynamic rate based economy. Energy is produced by power plants and magma gets pumped from hot spots. Buildings and mobile units are also built at a continuous rate. Control of larger parts of the map creates the potential to increase your more...

Can't seem to get this to work - I get

dyld: unknown required load command 0x80000022

in the console when I try to run it on 10.5.8 Intel.

Installed included packages and I have X11 (XQuartz 2.5.0 (xorg-server 1.7.6) - maybe that is the problem? Does not seem like it should be because it never launches X11 - just silently exits when run.) Same thing when launched from Xterm in X11.

Hello all,

In the Requirements the need for X11 is missing...
Did not install it for that reason, either it is native, or I'll trash it!

oh come on, X11 is not that bad :) Sure it is not as nice as the native OS X windowing system, but for a game that has its own UI anyway, why not? Also, I do perfectly fine doing most of my graphics and photo editing with Inkscape and Gimp running in X11. Not as nice as if it were native, but for the price, I'll deal.

Unfortunately, there apparently is no actual Mac version of the software yet, just Linux, Windows, and the source code (which presumably one could compile on a Mac).

It looks interesting, and I hope to see a Mac executable file soon!

Huh? When I downloaded the 140+ MB .dmg, there was indeed an (Intel-only) Mac OS X executable that was quite playable. They were even kind enough to include the .pkgs for the necessary executables, too.
