dc.descriptionDECWAR 2.3 is a sophisticated real-time space battle game designed to be played by from 1 to 10 people on the DEC-10 model mainframe computer. Decwar was originally written at the University of Texas at Austin circa 1979-1980, primarily by Jeff Potter and Bob Hysick, and it originated from a game called WAR, which came from the CDC-6600/6400 system at UT-Austin, author unknown. The files represented here were ported by Merlyn Cousins from Harris Newman's Decwar 2.3 source code to a Simh/Tops 10 emulator environment. Newman's 2.3 version reflected changes made to the UT-developed Decwar, which were made so the game could be installed on a Compuserve (CIS) system, circa 1981.en
