Do you like playing Skat (the German card game, not the US version) ?

i found a very strong engine written for Linux and ported it to AutoIt. it runs in an X Windows environment. it has lots of features and variants and i think it's the strongest freeware engine you can find.

my script is a setup. it will download the necessary components (they are all free, of course) and install them interactively. it will create shortcuts and links to the rules (if you need them). it comes with a clean deinstallation routine.

it is possible to play multiplayer games via LAN or telnet, but i did not yet succeed in making the multiplayer work. i don't have enough experience in X Windows / X11 Server and telnet. maybe anyone who knows is able to finish it.

unzip the script (the file name must not be changed) and run it. it's .au3, not .exe

language: english and german game, options, help and rules.

have fun
