How to play battleships?


How to add a plugin game example battleships into my openfire + spark? I would like to allow my lan users to play

I do not know the current status of the battleships plugin… it appears to be broken. The author of that plugin last tooks to have made some changes to update the plugin, but stopped part-way through :confused:

However, both the Reversi and Tic-Tac-Toe plugins both build OK for me.

I’ve not used these games here… but you should be able to just drop the jar’s into the plugin directory located in your Spark installation directory. Restart Spark. Now click the Spark --> Plugins to bring up the plugins menu. see if they loaded under the Installed Plugins tab.

If they are OK, open a chat with another user that also has the plugin setup… there should be a Reversi and tictactoe button now that you can start with another user.

Again, haven’t tried myself, but it may work. I think the forum community would be intersted in hearing if it works for you.
reversi.jar (126821 Bytes)
tictactoe.jar (71961 Bytes)

It is a pity that the battleships have bugs. Can I get this plugin somewhere to test it?

Are available any other games - download link?

the problem with the battleships plugin is it will not compile, the source code is broken.

You can check it out and see if you can get it to compile and work.


You can click on the “Download Zip” button on the bottom right side of the page. The battleships plugin is located in the src/plugins directory.

Good luck

I think it is too much broken to even build it https://issues.igniterealtime.org/browse/SPARK-1818
