My condolences to our Polish fellow forumers. I was shocked to hear of yesterday's tragic plane crash next to Katyn. It's even more terrible considering the historical significance of the place.

:-(

Hi guys,

I'm passing by just to let you know I won't be around the next 16-17 days. I'm going hiking in the mountains for 2 fat weeks. I might lodge at some mountain cabins, but I doubt they have internet. See you back after Aug 22. ;)

@Zamolxis, which mountains do you spend your holidays?

Appennino Ligure. Not the highest, but quite nice. Plus some friends live there so I chose the place also so that I can pay them a visit.

No, definitely not. Too much work with just one game :).

Nice work so far!

Just popping in to say I'm glad people are still interested in this game so long after its release. Nothing in the genre has come close to the greatness of H3. Fingers crossed for H7, eh?

I've played the online version (Kingdoms) for a while, and it's been disaster after disaster. And looking at the reviews for H6, it seems they have dumbed down the game a lot. So I think that as long as ubi owns the franchise, H3 won't be beaten :evil:

I'm returning to activity after a short break caused by exams.

My short term plans:
- bugfixing. If there are any particular issues that I should took care about possibly soon, let me know.

Mid-term plans:
- As my Master Thesis I'll probably to continue developing AI, including improvements to adventure AI and implementing a brand new battle AI.
- Support for cheat-proof multiplayer mode by information asymmetry (client receivers only information that player can learn about). Likely other MP-related stuff, though the support for the actual gameplay via network is not on my toplist (single-player bugs are difficult to debug enough, let's get rid of them first).
- bugfixing, minor features

well they definately aren't going to work on homm4 rewrite at least until VCMI would be in late-mantain phase (only heavily uncommon bug fixing from major Devs - almost all project traffic comming already from modders). But if you like some features from more recent homm games they definately can take a shot (concurent turns or duel mode seem fairy boost-on yeah? and spellbook-based creature casting like in H4 or H5 is not the hardest core-addon over SoD and WoG mechanics).

Feel free to write one, dood 8-)

Simultaneous turns are one of the long-term goals and should show up someday.

Just passing by to apologize for my long absence. :oops:

I'm caught up in some other projects (no games or anything as fun - so no need to be jealous), with no end in sight anytime soon, unless I manage to find the right people to delegate to. :)

I'm hoping to help at least a bit with testing the new dev version, but I'm not sure I'll manage in time before the next release. And I'll try to plan some time off around the next release at least.

I am very happy though to see there was lot of progress in the meantime. Not just game development, but also increase of activity in general, on the forum and on Mantis, which is a good sign. Great work everyone: coders and testers! :)
