Posted: 2010-08-01, 21:15 VCMI 0.82 released!
we're happy to release VCMI 0.82. The progress is good. We have reached a major milestone - this is first release with support for all OH3 adventure map objects (and we're close to having all town structures). This build also implements most of hero specialities.
We have done a number of bugfixes - about 60 issues have been resolved. Please check the changelog below and bugtracker for the list.
Check items implementation status for the full information about which map objects, town structures, skills, spells, artifacts, creature abilities and victory conditions are supported.
Extract the package into your main Heroes folder.
WoG 3.58f is required. We recommend using English version, .
If your game is in another language, you can extract this package into Data/ subfolder - that will make your H3 installation English.
If you have older version of VCMI, you have to overwrite it.
Save format has been changed, savegames from previous versions won't work with 0.82.
VCMI supports 800x600, 1024x600, 1024x768, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1366x768 and 1680x1080 screen resolutions. To use custom resolution, type (before starting the actual game!) in the console "resolution" and pick appropriate one. Alternatively, you can change default resolution by the editing config/settings.txt file.
Many thanks for all testers and developers who contributed to this build.
For the general information about our project look here. Our project isn't really playable now, but it gives you an idea of progress we have made so far. We're hoping that you'll like it.
Since VCMI 0.74 we have deployed separate bugtracker. Please report bugs using this form. Check this page for list of known bugs and details.
We hope you'll help us develop the project - details are available here. VCMI is an open source project licensed on GNU GPL 2.0 or higher. Our SVN repository with all the sources is available here.
You can look for help in building and developing VCMI sources in the development board.

Not being able to sacrifice artifacts is indeed annoying. I also feel it would be nice to have this possibility, at least as something to be enabled from the VCMI tweak options interface.
_________________ Tips for testers:
- Check the bugs already reported in the BUGTRACKER, to avoid creating dupes
- Check the ITEM IMPLEMENTATION STATUS lists, to avoid reporting as “bug” a feature not yet ready for testing
- If you feel the devs should prioritize a certain feature implementation, please add it to the Missing features & functionalities thread.
- Enjoy! :)
The use of the EDIT button is strongly encouraged on the forum.
