For those of you who would like to try this ancient FIBSclient, here is the place to get it from:

http://www.backgam.com/#FIBSW

You'll need to tweak it a bit.
Nothing fancy, and it does lack a *few* features I'd like to see, but I've been using it for almost 15 YEARS now.

Thanks for the post.   I also use FIBS/W, but had a hard time finding when I recently bought a new computer.   I suggest editing the "initfibs.scr" file to set up your initial toggle preferences, including initiating the waitfor command to set up alerts.  Biggest disadvantage is inability to record moves as in some of the newer clients.  Biggest advantage, ability to display Thorpe Metrics.

Used FIBS/W for 15 years. Just changed over to JAvafibs. I like the features, takes some getting use to time.
