Xvier is a board game where you and the computer alternately throw
stones into free columns. The stones pile up in the columns, and the
goal is to get four stones in a row, in a column or diagonally. You can
choose various board sizes and levels of difficulty.
During the game you click with the mouse onto the column where you want
to put your stone. Another possibility is a lower case letter in the
range 'a' to 'm' (maximally) where 'a' is the left column. If you want
to change the level of difficulty, you must use the keyboard. Simply
type the number of the desired level. These levels correspond to the
search depth of the game program. The meaning of the command line
options and buttons is given below.
While the game program computes a move, everything besides Change and
Quit is blocked.
