Version 5.1 of Lux: The Game of Universal Domination is now available for downloading from Sillysoft Games. This update changes the multiplayer ranking system so that each registration can only have 1 name in the rankings. This change comes after some extensive discussion about it in the Lux Forums.
Version 5.1 also includes support for international characters (including Japanese and other unicode letters) in ranking system nicknames and in Lux map files.
You can get the 8 MB file download of Lux 5.1 for Mac OS X, Windows,
or Linux at:
To update Lux make sure it is closed and then replace the old version with the new one.
October's still 2 months away, but initial planning has already started for the 2nd annual Luxtoberfest contest and celebration. Details, along with last year's archive, can be found online at: http://sillysoft.net/contests/
