Getting Blades

Whilst the original game no longer runs on modern systems, since the release of the code under the GNU GPL, the development community has been able to make this archaic code run fine on 32- and 64-bit computers:

Windows users

  • Installer for CBoE.

  • Experimental 64-bit game binaries - Don't use these if you don't have a 64-bit machine. Use the installer above, then swap out the binaries for these.

  • Experimental/beta Windows builds here. (These won't run on XP and might have trouble running in WINE.)

Mac users

  • Intel Mac build available here. No character editor.

  • PPC Mac build available here.

  • Experimental/beta Mac builds here. (Intel-only; should run on 10.7 and later.)

Original Blades

A lot of users express interest in running the original version of BoE, that came from SW. While this is possible on older machines or with extreme emulation/virtualization, it is not recommended. The community here can only offer limited amounts of support for this version. A registered version of the original BoE can be downloaded from SW's site


Help and Documentation
The documentation is currently available in HTML format at the following links: Game Documentation and Editor Docs. We are currently in the process of porting this to a format handy for packaging within the game.
