In order to release early and release often and to make participation for the community easier, the Thunder&Lightning source code and data are now available via a darcs server.

The server is currently in experimental stage.

  • To checkout the sources, install darcs and type:
    darcs get http://tnlgame.net/darcs/TnL-source
  • To checkout the data files:
    darcs get http://tnlgame.net/darcs/TnL-data
  • To update the repository later (must be inside repository directory):
    darcs pull
  • To record any changes you made:
    darcs record
  • To create a patch from the changes:
    darcs send -o patchfile.txt
    Then send the patch file to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

In order to run Thunder&Lightning, you need a special version of Io which is maintained in a git repository.

  • To download TnL's Io repository:
    git clone http://tnlgame.net/git/Io/.git
  • To switch to the tnl branch which contains the modified version of Io:
    git checkout tnl
