2005-03-02 - Patch page updated

Andrew Apted announced:

I have updated the Yadex patch page with three new patches: first one is my additional tools (the sector-reassignment function on the [Z] key is a feature I can't live without when editing), another one just remaps some keys for better laptop usage, and the third one combines all the patches there into one dirty big mess for one's patching pleasure.

The URL is

2003-02-15 - The mailing lists have moved

As Telefragged has pulled the plug on its mailing list server, the mailing lists have had to move. They're now hosted at

Thanks to Linuxgames and Telefragged for having graciously hosted this list for almost four years and to for doing the same now. Oh, and to Ingo van Lil and David Olofson too, for their help in searching for a new list server.

The new mailing lists work mostly like the old ones except that you should substitute "" for "" and "ecartis" for "listar".

The details, as always, are there.

I've also put new, glitzier screenshots on the web page.

2000-01-12 - Yadex 1.3.1 is out

This release fixes a compilation error that "Ras2" was having with G++ 2.7.2. If you had no trouble compiling Yadex 1.3.0, you don't need to upgrade. Otherwise, I recommend getting the diff, since it's 5 kB instead of 436 kB.

1999-07-23 - Announcing support for Doom alpha

Inspired by the recent thread in rgcde, I've added support for Doom alpha versions 0.4, 0.5 and, to some extent, version 0.2. Thanks to Jonathan Wilson for figuring out the format for pictures. And thus is the upcoming release postponed for another two weeks, hurray. For the curious, there is a bunch of screenshots there.

1999-07-03 - Status update

Though I've made no new release since january, I'm still working actively on Yadex. During the past six months, I've made a number of changes :

I plan to make a new release as soon as possible. But before that, I still have some documentation chores to do, a sticky saving problem to solve, some kinks in the makefile to iron out and probably other things I'm forgetting. So I'm not giving dates.

1999-03-10 - New mailing lists

The folks at Linuxgames have kindly setup two mailing lists for Yadex, yadex and yadex-announce. The details are there.
