Posted: 2016-11-01, 19:20   VCMI 0.99 released

We're back with new major release!

Download VCMI 0.99

A lot of work has been done to ensure game stability. A number of "impossible" crash bugs were tracked down and fixed. This opens up chance for better multiplayer support in the future.
RMG has undergone huge improvement, it is now not only closely resembling OH3, but also works much faster. Bonus is about 150 random map templates ported from original game and fan favourites.
Pretty much every aspect has been improved. Pay close attention to spells and cheat codes. Flying spells and artifacts have been restored as well as ability icons in Creature Window. Over 1400 commits were done since previous release 0.98, which means something.

Since 0.98f over 100 bugs have been fixed. Since 0.98 it's difficult to count. For the first time in history more bugs are being fixed than reported ;)

We also have daily builds for Windows and Ubuntu daily builds up and running.

Installation

We recommend you first make a copy of clean Heroes Complete / Shadow of Death folder. Extract VCMI zip package there.
WoG is not needed. All recommended mods and files can be downloaded via Launcher included in the package.

* New Bonus NO_TERRAIN_PENALTY
* Nomads will remove Sand movement penalty from army
* Flying and water walking is now supported in pathfinder
* New artifacts supported

* New cheat codes:
- vcmiglaurung - gives 5000 crystal dragons into each slot

* New console commands:
- gosolo - AI take control over human players and vice versa
- controlai - give control of one or all AIs to player

* Zones will not have straight paths anymore, they are totally random
* Generated zones will have different size depending on template setting
* Added Thieves Guild random object (1 per zone)

Map icon has wrong files.
"ScSelC.json" - is XHTML junk (saved web page?)

should be:
Code:

{
        "basepath" : "mapFormatIcons/",
    "images" :
    [
        { "group" : 1, "frame" : 0, "file" : "vcmi1.png"}
    ]
}



"vcmi1.png" - wrong directory should be in "mapFormatIcons/" subdirectory

Well congratz on releasing 0.99 sadly when i tried it, it crashed so that was not fun. Full clean install and installed only hota and hd menu mod and it just crashed so am i having bad luck or is there a miss somewhere?

Fixed again. For some reason git doesn't want to update these files for me.

As usual, everything works here. What is the error message?
